It’s been 10 years since the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 2. That’s almost a century in fighting-game years, but the wait is just about over–Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is almost here, and it wants to take you for a ride. Like its predecessor, MvC3 features fast-paced three-on-three fighting with a roster that comprises both old and new characters from Marvel and Capcom’s respective libraries. Have you ever wanted to have a team made up of Thor, Amaterasu, and Captain America? Well, now you can have it. Controls have been streamlined, but the action is still just as hectic as before.
Today, we’re revealing Marvel vs. Capcom 3’s Shadow Mode, which you can see in the screenshots above. Shadow Mode is downloadable content that will let you face off against a team of AI opponents modeled after the habits and tendencies of Capcom’s development staff and, according to Capcom, famous players from the fighting game scene. 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. Additionally, the first pack is scheduled for release in March 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.
