Marvel Vs Capcom 3: Jill/Shuma DLC arrives

Euro release unaffected by delays in Japan

Capcom has launched the Marvel Vs Capcom 3 Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath DLC packs today as planned.

The release of the packs was uncertain as they were delayed in Japan following the earthquake and tsunami disaster in the region.


"Jill has appeared in many Resident Evil games over the years, but it's her most recent appearance in Resident Evil 5 that defines her as a fighting games character. Which means that she's FAST, and scary, because she's being controlled by the device that Wesker has put in her chest," said Capcom man Leo Tan, otherwise known as 'The Tan Man'. Or something.

Tan goes on to reveal: "A little-known fact about Shuma-Gorath is that for quite a long time, Marvel didn't want Shuma-Gorath in the game at all. We did, though, so the producer fought relentlessly and eventually Marvel conceded that he'd be allowed to appear, but only as DLC and not as part of the main roster."

But you'll have to hand over £4 for EACH of them though, which we reckon is more than slightly steep. Especially considering hackers have found much of Jill's data already contained on the game disc.
