That’s right folks…that’s “STREET FIGHTER VS. TEKKEN” you see typed right there above.

After years of these two fighting franchises spawning several games each, soon we’ll be able to settle grudge matches with titles like “Ryu vs. Law” and “Yoshmitsu vs. Chun Li”.

At the 2010 EVO Fighting Championships, in Las Vegas, sever lucky attendees got the chance to watch a teaser video – sending waves of hype through the fighting community.

For years, Capcom’s “Vs.” series of games, starting with Street Fighter vs. X-Men (and currently, with the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom 3) has wowed audiences of the genre, and spawned several other “Vs.” games, most recently Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.

But…this isn’t the first time that Capcom has taken the “Vs.” series not just across franchises, but across DEVELOPERS. Lest we not forget about Capcom’s fantastic “Capcom vs. SNK” series.

Players have a lot to look forward to, and to imagine as all the info we have is a few camera shots, and a teaser\trailer.

Of course, I’ve includes these below.

Check ’em out, and get excited…I know I am.

This is it folks, after a decade of demand Capcom has finally given in…

MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 3 IS IN DEVELOPMENT!!!!!

Here’s the reveal teaser, via YouTube.

From the looks of things, it appears that the 2.5D  SFIV engine will NOT  be used, dashing our hopes of maybe getting high-res 2D sprites a la BlazBlue Capcom is stating that the game will be played with 3D characters on a 2D plane, but that an advanced version of the MT framework (used in games such as Lost Planet 2 and Resident Evil 5) will be utilized.

Described in the press kit as a “living comic…with a deep story”, MvC3’s announcement today is a big deal and it’s mainstream success might open the door for more games in the VS. series or hopefully a completely original fighter.

Capcom’s Seth Killian had this to say “It’s important that game’s have strong stories for Marvel, with fighting games it’s not as essential as an action game or role playing game but we are very much insisting there be some cohesive kind of story for this game. We actually have a subtitle for the game that means something this time. In the coming months we will be giving you more information about.”

As far as characters go, it appears that the following are confirmed to be in the game:

Wolverine, the Hulk, Iron Man, Street Fighter’s Ryu, Darkstalker’s Morrigan, Resident Evil’s Chris Redfield, Captain America, Super Skrull, Chun-Li, Deadpool, Felicia, Dante, Frank West, Mephisto, Black Widow and Doctor Doom.

Now if only Capcom would give us another Darkstalkers! Hey, I can HOPE….

Check back here for more news from Captivate 2010 … I’m sure Capcom has more surprises for us.
