I know more than one gamer who isn’t happy with the current selection of DLC characters for the smash hit Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. The game, which has only had 2 fighters released since its February release, may be receiving an “Ultimate Edition” that may include up to 12 more characters as well as Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine.

This would certainly explain the lack of DLC releases by Capcom other than a few lackluster shadow modes and alternate costumes; if this little rumor is true then I may forgive Capcom for dropping support for their title so early. New character details don’t exist because this is still a rumor as of yet, but If the images of Doctor Octopus and Frank West on the original MvC3 disc is any indication, we could be looking at something pretty special.

Let’s hope if this does come to fruition there’s an upgrade DLC pack so that I don’t have to drop another $40 or so dollars on a game that I’ve already played thoroughly. I wouldn’t mind having a few extra characters to get the last mission mode achievement though. You guys know what I’m talking about. Seriously, it sucks.

Look for a more formal announcement (maybe) at Comic-Con.

  1. Capcom really should offer the new characters as DLC and offer a discounted rate for current owners of the game.
    If you ask me, they desperately need to add a few balances and tweaks to their business model BEFORE their games.

  2. You know… I’m soooo iffy about buying Capcom titles these days… as they always seem to release a “super edition!” soon afterwards and ends up being cheaper and better than the past version… Why drop $60 on the first edition in a case like that?
