Marvel vs Capcom 3: Akuma and Taskmaster Gameplay
New villains join the fight!
It’s not that far from the February release date of Marvel Vs Capcom 3, but the hits just keep on coming with the reveal of Akuma and Taskmaster. These two villains are pretty formidable- Akuma is of course Capcom’s iconic martial arts demon and the scourge of many a player in countless beat ’em ups. However, this is probably the first game appearance of his Marvel counterpart- The mysterious, skull-masked Taskmaster may not be known to those not well-versed in comics lore. He’s a criminal mercenary with Photographic Memory– basically he can mimic any physical movement just by seeing it once, allowing him to take various attacks and fighting styles and use them as his own. Perhaps not quite in the league of Doctor Doom, but he’s pretty tough.
Both of these brawlers won’t be available off the bat- you’re gonna have to earn ’em. Akuma is unlocked after earning 2000 player points in-game, while Taskmaster will require 8000.
Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is out February 16 for the PS3 and Xbox360.
It will take some playing to unlock these two new challengers.
