That’s the end of the fact portion of this post, now to move into rumor territory… Images were also discovered on the Capcom web server hinting at a few more leaked characters including Virgil, Rocket Raccoon, Phoenix Wright, Nova, Nemesis, Iron Fist, Frank West, and Doctor Strange.

  1. Two things Capcom forgot: (1) That they ditched the localized “Firebrand” name and went with “Red Arremer” for international versions, and (2) THAT THEY MADE A HUGE DEAL OUT OF INCLUDING DLC IN MVSC3. I mean am I misunderstanding something here? Because people made a fuss over their immediate implementation of DLC characters at launch, and they responded with “that’s just the most successful business model now, but don’t worry because we’ll be supporting MvsC3 for a while.” And now a new version? Why? I’m so confused 8(

  2. I’m not sure myself if I should be excited or enraged.

    And we all know this is following the success of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition with Capcom wanting to nickel and dime their fans some more.

    I’m just hoping they don’t completely forsake their fans(not keeping my hopes up there, these are the people who cancelled Mega Man Legends 3) and have the ‘Ultimate’ edition available as an Add-On for existing copies of MvC3…

  3. Called it.

    Also, these people have already forsaken their fans. Where’s my Ace Attorney Investigations 2, and why do I have to prove to Capcom that I want Phoenix Wright vs. Professor Layton by getting down on my knees and begging for it.

  4. I’m not really surprised at the new version with more characters, since that’s becoming standard for fighting games now, but I’m with Anatotitan on this one: the promised their fans that they would practically abuse the DLC for new characters and such, and that’s something they haven’t really done. Atleast, not yet.

    Still, paying $10 for a single character seems a little overpriced for me.

  5. I am so glad I held off getting this, I had a bad feeling that Street Fighter 4 Syndrome was gonna show up, so I will gleefully pick this up when it comes to the UK

  6. Can’t say I didn’t expect this sooner or later but seriously Capcom? I bought the Special Edition of the game that included the Jill and Shuma Gorath DLC, expecting that Capcom would work with one game for once and support it through DLC, patches, etc. Like Ana, I’m confused also because from what I remember, wasn’t Capcom holding surveys on what characters people wanted to see as DLC in the near future?

    Oh well, through all the complaining, I know I’m still going to end up buying it.

  7. I swear to god, if this takes the whole Street Fighter IV route and has like 5 different versions, I will just sell my copy now and wait for them to say “okay, THIS is our last one”
