Capcom just announced Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 which has twelve new characters, spectator mode, and balance tweaks. The game is slated to come out in November, but what about people who bought Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. Will they be able to upgrade to Ultimate by purchasing downloadable content?
"Right now, we’re only thinking about releasing a disc version," said Ryota Niitsuma, producer, in an interview with Siliconera. I asked Niitsuma-san for more details and if there was a "data" issue like Super Street Fighter IV.
"Given the development schedule, there wasn’t enough time to work out all of the details to release it as downloadable content, as well. Also, for the reason you mentioned, there is so much data in the game it was easier to go this route," Niitsuma answered.
When Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 comes out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 it will retail for $39.99.
