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.

Mega Man in MVC3 Leaked? (Maybe Not)

We'll treat this as a rumor for now, but it may not be for much longer. The above New York Comic-Con image comes 4chan, apparently originating from Eventhubs.com, revealing Mega Man, among some other characters, in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. Making matters shadier, Eventhubs pulled the images soon after. The consensus is that the characters are being held for a Sunday reveal.

Of course, Mega Man is a Marvel Vs. Capcom veteran, and his inclusion would probably come as no surprise. Additionally, this wouldn't even be the first MVC3 leak that's come out of New York Comic-Con already. Be that as it may, we can only still speculate for now.

Edit: We are aware that the artwork comes from Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, but it remains to be seen why it's been posted at NYCC at all. If all else we can ask Joveth about it on a podcast or something, hahaha.

Edit 2: I've been informed that these pictures do not come from Capcom's booth, but rather IGN's booth. Why they would advertise MVC3 with MVC2 art is certainly unknown, but it takes away the officialness of the images.

TMMN Becomes Major Player in Capcom Leak Syndicate

Yeah, so I know today is April Fools, and you all thought the Roll DLC thing was a joke. But the truth is it was a real tip off, and Capcom really did ask us to remove it. But it now seems they've had a change of heart, and rather than trying to squash leaks they will now coordinate them carefully. So I am proud to announce that The Mega Man Network and Protodude's Rockman Corner, in cooperation with Capcom*Unity, will be your center for the latest and hottest Mega Man news leaks! Check below for the press release.

San Mateo, CA – April 1, 2010

Capcom Unity is proud to announce a unique partnership with Mega Man fansites the Mega Man Network and Protodude’s Rockman Corner.

Capcom Unity has appointed the Mega Man Network as the main distributor of Mega Man leaks.

We were tired of trying to extinguish multiple fires going on at the same time,” says jgonzo of Capcom Unity, “the recent Mega Man 9 Roll DLC leak kind of tipped us over the edge, so we had to do something.

As part of the exclusive partnership, the Mega Man Network will be receiving weekly Famitsu issues directly from the printing factory in Japan, along with a handy usb thumbdrive full of complete digital scans for uploading.

Additionally, the newly developed Capcom Unity Ministry of Localized Enforcement Synergy will provide TMMN with ambassadors from within Capcom that will distribute information to TMMN’s bloggers. Rest assured, these ambassadors have undergone strict training that will allow them to share the best leaks that will provide for maximum blog coverage.

Some of our leaks weren’t getting enough attention, so we designed this program specifically to address that,” says jgonzo, “Like when the Mega Man 9 secret was leaked—nobody was blogging about it. We’re going to rectify that immediately.

Finally, Capcom Unity has appointed Protodude’s Rockman Corner as THE place to go to for all Mega Man Legends 3 rumors, because “that in its own deserves an entire website”.

"We hope to grow this program in the future to include the managing of ALL of our franchises' leaks, but we'll see how this pilot program goes," says jgonzo.
