Thor And Ammaterasu Confirmed For MvC 3

by Tim Turi on Jul 23, 2010 at 12:25 PM

Nipping at the heels of four other newly announced Marvel vs. Capcom 3 fighters come two celestial warriors. One wields a thunderous hammer and is the son of Odin, the other is a paint-brush wielding, sun god canine.

Thor represents the Marvel side of the fight, descending from the heavens to bolster hope for a full Avengers roster in the game. We can’t wait to see what chaos he manages with the boomerang hammer, Mjolnir.

Amaterasu comes from the Capcom title, Okami, a game featuring beautiful ink aesthetic in the vein of traditional Japanese art. MvC 3 should perfectly fit the art style from the game. We’re excited to see Ammy in action as she gnaws and Power Slashes through the competition with the Celestial Brush.

Capcom’s recent announcement is as exciting (even though it kind of slipped out a couple days early), and we can’t wait to see the full cast as the company ramps up towards its Spring 2011 release date for 360 and PS3.
