Alternate Color Zero Minimate at SDCC

If you've been interested in those Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Minimate figures, prepare for something special at San Diego Comic Con 2011. Marvel announced they will be putting out some special alternate color characters, including a Mega Man X-like, blue clad Zero. If you're going to be at the event you can pick them up at the Entertainment Earth Booth, #2343. If you can't make it, you can always try on Toys "R" Us's Comic Con 2011 online shop beginning July 24th. Either way you go about it, act quickly because they're only going to be available in limited supply. Be sure to grab alternate colored Zero while you're hearing about whatever crazy Marvel vs. Capcom 3 news Capcom apparently has planned to announce.

Thanks for the tip, Phaelin!

Mega Man X Takes the DLC Vote Crown

The voting is over, the dust has settled, and the results are in. And X fans should be accordingly happy! Because in the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC fan poll, the big blue guy won it with 2,568 votes, a whopping 542 votes ahead of second pick Phoenix Wright. In fact, 34% of all people who voted chose X as one of the three picks. Additionally, Classic Mega Man came in 9th with 967 votes, Bass.EXE came in 10th with 889 votes, Sigma came in 13th (barely falling behind Ryu (other Ryu)) with 790 votes, and MegaMan.EXE landed in 19th with 548 votes. But hey, great going X! Of course, gotta be Mr. Killjoy now and reiterate this was not an official Capcom poll, and does not have any official bearing on future DLC choices. However, should Capcom look to fan feedback in making a selection, I'd say X has a pretty strong resume.

But hey, we can still discuss it. Now that we know Mega Man X is the top pick among voting fans, just which Mega Man X would you like to see? His usual form? Perhaps his slimmed down X8 form? Maybe his stealthy Command Mission form? Or how about one of any number of armors? How do you see X being a formidable opponent?

Thanks for the tip, Racerman!

Round 2 of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC Voting

Voting for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC has returned. This time Capcom Unity moderator Zonic has setup simple polls listing the top 25 desired characters  from both the Capcom thread and the Marvel thread. You can select up to three characters on each poll, and voting will run until March 5th, midnight PST. At the moment of writing this, Mega Man X actually does hold a lead in the Capcom poll. As always, I must stress this is not an official Capcom poll and may not necessarily have any bearing on future DLC picks. However, Capcom's Sven has mentioned they are aware of the polls, and any fan feedback can potentially be considered for future decisions on updates. Come what may, it never hurts to make your voices heard!

Thanks, Ash!

X Sitting Pretty in MVC3 Fan Popularity

It wasn't too long back that Capcom Unity opened voting for most desired DLC characters in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on their forums. It seems voting ended a bit earlier than previously reported, but the Capcom character thread alone saw over 6,000 responses in that time frame. Although there are no official tallies yet, fans keeping track of the votes have reported Mega Man X has been the top voted character, at least during the majority of the polling time. If not the most wanted, he's definitely up near the top. Other popular picks include classic Mega Man, Bass.EXE and Sigma. I should also point on that some months back, Japanese fans were polled with the same question, and in that case too, Mega Man X (ahem, Rockman X) was also the top Capcom pick. It would seem from the East to the West, this X guy is pretty dang popular.

Of course it goes without saying that this in no way gives any guarantee for Mega Man X appearing in later DLC. All it states is that the demand is there. Personally I've been finding Marvel vs. Capcom 3 to be incredibly fun as it is, and if anything Amaterasu is my top character so far. HHHHHHHHHHHH

Update: The official tallies are in, and Mega Man X ended up in second place with 2,061 votes, a scant 33 behind Strider Hiryu. Also making the top 20 is classic Mega Man, Bass.EXE, MegaMan.EXE and Sigma. A poll will be held on Unity at a later date allowing people to vote on the top 20 finalists in both the Capcom and Marvel sides. But again, this is not an official Capcom survey and will not determine any future DLC outcomes. Thanks, Aliltias!

Zero as Your Minimate

Your dreams of having Zero as sort of a funny looking Lego Man are growing nearer. Here is a picture of Zero in Minimate form, albeit likely a prototype. You can also check out some of the other Marvel vs. Capcom 3 crew here. From the images, it seems the figures are planned to go on sale in July. They'll come in box sets for $17.99 US. Seems like Zero's getting a lot of merchandise love this year! Via Protodude's Rockman Corner (image via ComingSoon.net)

Vote for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 DLC

Starting last night, Capcom Unity opened forum topics for you to vote for your most desired DLC characters in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. For all those who've felt slighted for whatever reason by the main choices, here's your opportunity to make your voices heard! You can go here to vote on the Capcom characters, and go here to vote on the Marvel characters. You can vote for a minimum of three characters and a maximum of five, and voting will be closed during night. You have until February 28th to cast your votes, so hurry and get your votes in! Hundreds already have.

Thanks for the tip, Glitcher!

Mega Man in MVC3 Leaked? Round Two!

A little while back we reported on the possible inclusion of Mega Man in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 based on some visual evidence, but that turned out to be a total wash. But hey, maybe it's worth another shot. The image on the right allegedly leaked out on IPlayWinner today, but like all good leaks was soon deleted afterwards. That didn't stop the image from spreading around however, and in this case was found again in an EventsHub comments thread. It's tough to read but it clearly shows Mega Man listed. I've also taken the liberty of editing out other leaked names, as they don't pertain to this site. If this is legit I'm not going to be behind spoiling so much! But you can find it elsewhere if you really need to. As mentioned before, it'd hardly be surprising to see Mega Man jump into the fray, already being a Marvel Vs. Capcom veteran. But perhaps we will find out later this week, when more MVC3 info is supposed to be coming out.

Thanks, Seiko!

Edit: I'm told this image is actually not quite new. But a rumor is a rumor, and so far this image is building a decent track record with Zero and She-Hulk included.
