Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 DLC detailed, screens

Shadow mode is go

Capcom has announced details of Marvel Vs Capcom 3 DLC, which will release in March.


The content, dubbed 'Shadow Mode' will allow players to "face-off against custom-built computer opponents modeled after famous players and specific themed teams", according to Capcom.

These would appear to be 'Shadow' AI routines that will mimic the fighting style and decisions of Capcom's best known personalities - a little like ghost modes in racing games.

A series of downloadable packs will be released, each containing three unique teams to battle against, with their own programmed special techniques and preferences.

The first pack will include the team and AI Personality of the game's producer, Ryota Niitsuma, in addition to the Shadow Mode teams for Assistant Producer Akihito Kadowaki and a QA team leader.

More packs will be announced soon, and "may feature some personalities you already know", according to Capcom.

GamesMaster magazine gave the title a 90 percent score in its own Marvel Vs Capcom 3 review this month.
