The biggest applause in the panels that Capcom held for their upcoming fighting games came for the introduction of the blue-suited hero of the Ace Attorney games. During the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 panel, special consultant and fighting game expert Seth Killian talked about how the development team tried to make the unlikely placement of the barrister into a brawling game. They also wanted to make sure that Phoenix still felt like the hero who's earned a loyal following. I think they nailed it. Watch this video and you'll probably agree.

I love it when fighting games don't take themselves seriously (why should they anyway?) and we get these outrageous characters in between the usual mix, even when they are themselves a joke to play (Dan, I'm looking at you).
