Amaterasu's official artwork

Introduction

Amaterasu is a Capcom character hailing from the cult classic hit, Ōkami. The MvC3 team seems to have stayed true to her techniques in Ōkami. Implementing many of her weapons, and tools seems to have created an extremely interesting character. The Ōkami version of Amaterasu is the wolf incarnation of the Sun Goddess. She uses her power to restore peace and beauty to the lands.

Colors

All of Amaterasu's colors represent a Canine Warrior from Ōkami.

Special Moves

Power Slash=QCBAtk.pngThe Power Slash brush technique has found its way to MvC3. As of now it is a suspected overhead. Depending on the strength it can reach different heights.

L.png: Low/Far

M.png: Mid/Mid

H.png: High/Close

As you can see there are both vertical and horizontal differences in the different strengths of the stroke. To get a better understanding of the strengths, it works like a descending slope with H.png being at the top, L.png at the bottom, and :m: in between the two. The :h: stroke not only works as a good anti-air, but it helps keep your opponent grounded since the strokes spends a bit of time floating in the air while Ammy is free to do whatever. It can pcrossups rovide upon wakeup, due to being an overhead, and aid her overall mixup game.

Hypers

  • Ōkami Shuffle= :qcf: :atk: :atk: Elements for shorthand. Hits fullscreen and deals pretty good chip. Instant in air, and may possibly be the new Hailstorm. Prime for DHC/KFC.
  • Mist=:qcb: :atk: :atk: Approx time unknown
  • Lvl 3= :dp: :atk: :atk: Ammy takes all of her Lvl 5 Celestial Weapons and bitch slaps the opponent (simply put) Shown in the Gamescom video

Assists

  • α: Solar Flare= Amaterasu’s counter which ends in a SPD
  • β: Cold Star= Revision of the infamous Ice Shots of the SDCC Build. Was changed to being shot down-forward in the TGS Bild because ground shots were OP
  • γ: Bloom= Builds meter
