Frank West cut, Phoenix Wright considered for MvC3

Given his presence in Tatsunoko vs Capcom, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Dead Rising's Frank West was a shoe-in for Marvel vs Capcom 3, but that's not the case. Producer Ryota Niitsuma has explained that Frank was cut from the game's roster at a late stage, despite the work that had already been put into his character.

"As for Frank West, he was actually in the process quite deep, and in one of our high quality CG trailers he was actually part of it," Niitsuma told at the end of last week. "But we've taken him out, due to the fact that we've foreseen some extra work involved, just from the nature of his moves. We felt we could direct our resources to better use, so we've taken Frank out."

They should add a zombie from all the zombie games they make.

Translation: We're going to sell him as DLC instead.

They know people want him, so they're gonna sell him as DLC instead.

All this talk about 'lack of moves' is just an excuse..

ally123453737d ago

lack of moves? what does that even mean? did Capcom even PLAY their own game? frank can improvise with almost anything- the whole point of DR was that he can come up with so many different ways to defeat zombies. surely they can think of SOMETHING for him? uggh.

yeah cause the 360 doesn't have any bad ass characters to represent their system so they get some average guy who fights zombies with a dildo as a mascot? LOL! Kratos was meant for this game btw. If they wanna start doin stuff like this maybe add Drake and Cole since they are both more bad ass than West.

F U Crapcom. Foreal.

They're just BSing people so they can milk us with DLC later on. :p

Frank was in Tatsunoko Vs Capcom on the Wii.

In other words "we want to stop him so we have an excuse to stall for DLC. Then to really annoy you we will include him in the super version a year later at half price!"
