Story Analysis: ilomilo

By  •  Features

A cutesy puzzle game starring two lovable little creatures navigating a folksy arts-and-crafts style world is probably the last place you’d expect to find a sentimental story about star-crossed relationships and mortality.

And that’s what makes ilomilo (pronounced “ee-lo-me-lo”) more unforgettable than the average puzzle game.

But what about the characters we have next to no chance of seeing—not because they were a licensed character (Tremor), or because they’re a character more associated with Disney than Marvel (Aladdin), or because they’re just too ridiculous (Squirrel Girl)—but simply because they’re too obscure (or just too awesome)?

Below are the ten greatest characters you’ll never see as DLC in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, ranked not in order of their greatness, but rather by how unlikely it is that they’d ever be considered for inclusion. Though remember, Deadpool was still considered too obscure back when Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 came out in 2000, so you never know what might happen. Read More
