Quagmire: more than a character in The Family Guy, it is also a term that means “a situation from which extrication is very difficult”, according to dictionary.com. Monday, Capcom found itself in a quagmire with leaks appearing all over the internet. Ultimately, they failed to extricate themselves.

First, news popped up on Gaming Bolt announcing that some lucky son-of-a-gun got hands on an early copy of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and leaked the full opening trailer online. Like Rockstar with the recent L.A. Noire trailer leak, Capcom swiftly ducked the blow. It turns out this leak was only one hand of a double-punch, however, and the knock out blow was soon coming. Spoiler alert.

Now, the double punch (ala Super Punch Out!!’s Bear Hugger) in practice turns out to be really stupid. In concept as well as in video games, however, it’s devastating as the video below shows. Yes, Capcom dodged a blow, but wound up running their faces into a much larger fist with knuckles as hard as mountains. Now, the gaming world knows who the final boss is in MvC3. Hark, the planet eater!

  1. Damn the final boss video is already up. That sucks for people who wanted to play the game/find out for themselves.

    Duuuuude. I knew the final boss had been leaked but the opening trailer I had no idea. That’s what I appreciate about you. You get the full story (or so says your twitter). Anyway … forgot what I was going to say.

      It’s not meant to be the sucessor to RE5. It’s a new take on tihgns. It’s why it’s revisitng a familiar local/time/event instead of progressing the story. This is the franchises first real action shooter. Thats where RE5 messed up. Hated that linear crap, an action shooter in which you couldn’t move and shoot. ****ing Dumb!!! But this should actually mean good tihgns for the next RE. It might actually go back to its roots of being a single palyer survival horror game (In the vain of Dead Space not RE3 or older) and to those who want a co-op action game they deliver this VN:F [1.9.15_1155](from 0 votes)

    Anyone really care about what the final boss is? I’m more focused on the multiplayer, which, just like for halo, is the meat of this game.
