Akuma and Taskmaster Added to Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Marvel's assassin-for-hire and the evil brother of Ryu's mentor in Capcom's Street Fighter franchise are sneaking their way onto the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 roster.

Revealed in video form today by IGN, the decription for Akuma reveals that the character will be added as a hidden character in the game. There is no mention of how Taskmaster fits into the roster, other than the fact that he will bring his move-copying skills into the battlefield when squaring-off against the rest of the MvC3 roster.

Previous roster updates have included such pleasant surprises as Capcom's Mike Haggar and Marvel's She-Hulk. Introduction videos for Akuma and Taskmaster are embedded after the break.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds launches for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 15.

    Taskmaster? Sounds like a 1990's era computer productivity program.

      he started off so cheesy.
      if he watched someone fight, he could copy their moves and fight exactly like them.
      therefore, after meeting him once, it became near impossible to defeat him in combat. except for deadpool, because he's crazy, his moves were unpredictable.

      so taskmaster just trains other supervillians to be better fighters now.
