It’s nearly impossible to think of the foes of the X-Men and not think of the Sentinels. Since their introduction in 1965, these mutant hunter robots have been a constant bane to the X-Men’s existence. Not surprisingly, the Sentinels have made appearances either as foes or playable characters in at least a dozen X-Men related video games.
The first time playable was coincidentally in X-Men: Children of the Atom, a precursor to the Marvel vs. Capcom series. The Sentinel would make its Marvel vs. Capcom debut as an assist character before becoming a fully fledged playable character in Marvel vs. Capcom 2: A New Age of Heroes.
To this day, many players consider the Sentinel one of the most powerful in the game due to its high damage attacks and crushing combos. Take a peek below to see the new Sentinel in action.
Hsien-ko is a whole different kind of character. She can best be described as Manga gone wrong with moves that resemble a demented Dhalsim and Spider-Man woven into one with some big ass swords for good measure. Hsien-ko is actually part of a pair of twins along with her sister Mei-Ling who combined to fight for their mother’s soul in Darkstalkers: Night Warriors. They would return in Darkstalkers 3: Vampire Savior as a pair of reincarnated twins who began experiencing strange powers on their sixteenth birthday. Take a look below at Hsien-ko’s distracting and rapidfire style.
