I was a big ol’ Alien vs. Predator fan back in the day. I’d gladly give the cabinets all my money to slay Alien scum with my favourite cyborg bad ass: Lieutenant Linn Kurosawa. I have soft spot for any woman who chooses to fight an Alien horde with nothing but a pistol, a Katana and a multipack of whoop ass.
At a time when female characters in beat ‘em ups were nothing but stereotypes in the skimpiest outfits ever (I’m not complaining), Kurosawa was a breath of fresh air. A breath of fresh air who could slice you in 2, pop a cap in your ass and had the strength to throw giant Alien species three times her size with one hand.
Ever since Capcom began their vs. series, I’ve always hoped, wished and ceremonially cast on voodoo dolls that Kurosawa would make the cut for one the cross over scraps, but she never did. Instead she was relegated to appearing in the swimming pool of Ken’s cruise liner in Street Fighter Alpha 2 and nothing more. So I’m hoping that Capcom either come across my plea and think “Actually…she would make a GREAT inclusion for Marvel vs. Capcom 3!” or that a member of the development team harbors the same love for Linn Kurosawa as I do, and that she’s on track to making her vs. debut.
I’ve named by #1 Capcom pick for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. So what’s yours?
