The lights are on
During Capcom’s big reveal of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, producer Ryota Niitsuma was asked if the Tyrant from the original Resident Evil would be playable. His answer regarding the giant, clawed t-virus abomination was a bit of a shocker.“I can tell you this,” Niitsuma began. “There were plans to include Tyrant in the game up to the very middle. Then we kind of cut that. Sorry.”If you didn’t already know, Jill Valentine could summon the Tyrant from the ground with one of her super moves in Marvel vs. Capcom 2. The skinned gorilla-looking creature would burst from under the stage similarly to the way he did in Resident Evil 1’s conclusion on the mansion heliport.Consider me saddened that I will not be able to deliver a dragon uppercut to the mutant’s exposed heart.

bummer that would've been a cool character
They should add Nemesis from RE3.
meh he really wasnt all that great in MVC2 anyway.
Well, never played this game so no loss for me.
NO!! they killed tyrant! you Basterds!
What about dude from lost planet?
I love that quote. "the very middle" and "kind of cut that. Sorry" XD
It probably would have unbalanced it anyway, if they represented him faithfully.
i hope they set it up as at least a DLC
He would have been a beast of a playable character.
i had him as an action figure
As long as Jill is still there.
tyrant wasn't in a RE game for years so i'm sure Chris can summon one of the newer t-virus mutations or it can be a whole new playable character.
But the Tyrant was in the very first Resident Evil title...
I second that Lyte Epps, it would be an epic win if they could include Nemesis in the MvC3 roster...heck, I'm excited about a game that I probably won't be purchasing XD.
hope they keep Jill in there she kinda fun to use...
that's depressing...though Nemesis would be live
That sucks. tyrant would have been a cool playable character
Still hoping for HUNK, and maybe the Tofu for a laugh.
