Rumor: Asura from Asura’s Wrath to Appear in Marvel vs Capcom 3?

July 11, 2011, By Christian Davis

Here’s one of the more interesting rumors that have been surrounding Marvel vs Capcom 3 as of late. Capcom’s upcoming action title, Asura’s Wrath has you control a two to six armed former God. He was betrayed by the Gods he trusted and stripped of his powers, his only goals are vengeance and to save his daughter. Sounds kind of familiar right? Though he’s just as badass, if not more badass than the other deity killing protagonist.

Asura is brought up because thanks to a tweet from the official Marvel vs Capcom 3 twitter, they’ve hinted at him being a potential fighter in the game.

“We’ve got a new franchise in Asura’s Wrath. Wouldn’t he be awesome as a character in MvC3?”

Now, the idea of him being in the game is somewhat strange since the game slated for a 2012 release date. If Asura were to be in the title, than Capcom could announce his arrival after his game is released or the long rumored Super Marvel vs Capcom 3 to be released after Asura’s Wrath hit’s shelves. If not, then they run the risk of spoiling any surprises for their own character.

There’s also the option that Capcom could have made that just to stir the pot and mean nothing by it.

What do you think of the rumor? A strong possibility or is Capcom just pulling our leg?
