Capcom has kicked off their San Diego Comic-Con announcements by revealing details on the highly-anticipated update to Marvel vs. Capcom 3, their hit crossover fighting game. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will add 12 new fighters to the roster in eight new stages, as well as a host of balance and gameplay changes.
While Capcom itself only revealed four of the new 12 characters (Strider Hiryu and Firebrand on the Capcom side, Ghost Rider and Hawkeye on the Marvel side), intrepid fighting game fans in the NeoGAF forums stumbled across a whole host of hidden images on Capcom's Web server that appears to reveal the remaining eight characters: Vergil, Phoenix Wright, Nemesis, and Frank West for Capcom, and Doctor Strange, Rocket Raccoon, Nova, and Iron Fist.

No Capcom representatives could be reached for comment.
