The date has been set: Marvel vs. Capcom 3 hits home consoles on February 15, 2011.
To celebrate the news, Capcom has unveiled four new characters: She-Hulk and Shuma-Gorath from the Marvel universe, and Zero and BattleSuit Jill Valentine from the Capcom side.
A Fate of Two Worlds Special Edition will also be available and includes:
– Steelbook case featuring exclusive art work
– Comic/Art Book: A 12-page prologue comic, written by Marvel writer Frank Tieri, plus campaign art and a curated selection of fan art
– 1-Month Subscription to Marvel Digital Comics, providing unlimited online access to Marvel content
– 2 Playable DLC Characters: Shuma-Gorath and Jill Valentine
That’s right, Jill and Shuma will be available as DLC, four weeks after the release of the game.
With the game now less than three months away, I’m genuinely beginning to worry about the lack of dream picks in character lineup. Maybe I’ll have to wait for Super Marvel vs. Capcom 4 Turbo III EX to get some goddamn Carnage around.
