Regarding Thor: “Bringing him into this game is huge,” director of Marvel Games T.Q. Jefferson said. “The fact that we’ve got the movie coming out and another Thor game coming out from Sega, there’s an appetite for Thor out there among the fanbase.” For the especially curious among you, Jefferson revealed that the version of the Asgardian god used in this game will be Thor as drawn by Olivier Coipel in the latest comic series.
Joining the mighty Thor in Marvel vs. Capcom 3’s character lineup is Amaterasu, sun goddess, white wolf and star of Capcom’s Okami. She may be the smallest fighter on the roster so far, but, as you can see in the video after the break, she’s as fierce as she is amazingly rendered.
And as a bonus, here’s some combat footage shown at SDCC incorporating the new fighters.
