The Flying Dragon Goes into Exile
Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of two worlds has an ever-growing roster of characters. With so many new characters being added, it was assumed that the main staples of the franchise should be returning—well, that doesn’t appear to be the case. One extremely popular character in particular won’t be returning.
Ryota Niitsuma (The game’s Director) said in a recent tweet that the Flying Dragon aka Strider Hiryu won’t be included in the upcoming MvC3. In a rough translation, Niitsuma-san stated he isn’t being included because he “didn’t fit in with its (MvC3’s)concept.”
It’s unclear exactly what Niitsuma-san alludes to when mention it’s “concept” but perhaps over the next few months his statements will become more clear.
