Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC Already Detailed


DLC for todays release of the game Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 has just been explained in greater detail. This is all taken from the MvC3 Facebook page:

We’ve recently announced 2 more pieces of DLC content and from looking at the comments on the wall and posts, it looks like some of you are a bit confused about what’s what and we’d like to help you out!

DLC Costume pack- Available March 1st, 2011
New costume for Ryu, Iron Man, Captain America, Dante, Chris, and Thor
All 6 are available for 400 Microsoft points or $5
These are NOT included in the special edition.

Shadow Mode- Available March 1st, 2011
The first Shadow Mode pack will include teams and AI from three Capcom staff members, including producer Ryota Niitsuma, associate producer Akihito Kadowaki, and a QA tester.
The first pack is scheduled for release on March 1st, 2011 with more packs becoming available for download at a later date. If you ever wanted to say you beat the producer of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 at his own game, this is your best shot.
These are NOT included in the special edition.

Bought the special edition of MvC3? You get Jill and Shuma Gorath! Available March 15th, 2011.
The SE version of the game comes with downloadable characters, Jill and Shuma Gorath. You may redeem these characters on March 15, 2011. We did not intentionally delay the DLC characters as we know how badly our fans want to play them. This was an unfortunate technical issue and we apologize for them not being available today.
For PS3 copies of the special edition, your PSN code is printed on the back of your art book. On March 15th, your PSN code will be available for activation. If you attempt to enter your code before March 15, 2011, PSN will tell you that it’s an invalid code.
For Xbox 360 copies of the special edition, we will send you your Xbox LIVE DLC code on March 15, 2011. To register your email with our system, please visit: marvelvscapcom3.com/redeemand follow the step by step instructions. The code on the back of your art book is NOT a Xbox LIVE code but rather, the code you input into our redeem site.
Jill and Shuma-Gorath is the only DLC that comes with the special edition. Buying the special edition does not also make you eligible for other DLC.

If you’ve got any questions, please ask them in this note and we’ll try to answer them.

    Have you scene the strategy guide for that game? Dear god its huge

    It sure is and it makes perfect sense considering there are over 30 characters and each character has tons of moves and combos.

    A good fighting guide has to give detailed information on strengths and weaknesses of each character, super attacks, defense and offensive strategies, team combos, and who would team up best with others. That’s a lot of info to have per character. For anyone wondering the guide is over 350 pages. ;-)

    I think I have just discovered why I suck at fighting games. I would never EVER read 350 pages of pure instructions on how to play anything.
