Akuma and Taskmaster Confirmed!

It's official! Taskmaster and Akuma are on the roster for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3!

Akuma is a fitting choice. He was a hidden character in X-Men Children of the Atom and it looks like Capcom has decided to keep the tradition going. He plays just like he always has with fireballs, dive kicks and the Raging Demon. I really hope there will be a Cyber Akuma costume to unlock for him.

Taskmaster was rumored for a while. First there was the Twitter post, then the uncolored comic book pages. So today they have finally official announced him. Now for those of you who don't know who Taskmaster is, he goes WAY back into Marvel Comics. He has a photographic memory that allows him to copy any physical move he sees. So he uses a shield like Captain America, bow and arrows like Hawkeye, guns like The Punisher and his sword comes from when he copied The Black Knight. When villains need somebody to train their henchmen, they turn to the Taskmaster.

If you'd like to see more of Taskmaster and Akuma in action, check out this link from Famitsu. (Other sites have the same two videos, but the quality is much better on the link)

This is only proving the leaks that came from Twitter a few months ago. So if it's true we have Hsien-Ko/Lei-Lei for Capcom and Sentinel for Marvel. I know some people are a little mad that Mega Man, Strider and for me Gambit might not be in the game, but who knows? There's still a chance of more DLC characters after Jill and Shuma-Gorath. So I guess we'll have to wait and see!
