Marvel vs Capcom 3 to get Shadow Mode DLC

Monday, 7th February 2011 18:35 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Capcom’s announced details of Shadow Mode, a new DLC feature for Marvel vs Capcom 3.

The content, which will arrive after the game’s launch on February 18 in the UK, will allow you to “face off against custom-built computer opponents, modeled after famous players and specific themed teams.”

The first pack that will enable this will be from producer Ryota Niitsuma, followed subsequently by assistant producer Akihito Kadowaki and a QA lead.

More packs will follow afterwards that are based on “some personalities you already know.”

Shadow Mode releases in March for MvC3. There’s more on the mode over at Capcom Unity.

    @1 Basically they’ll distribute AI routines that mimic the tendencies and styles of certain fighting game personalities so you can play against their “shadows” at home.

    It’s a bit like ghost data in racing games, only interactive.

    Downloadable bot opponents exhibiting tendencies based on AI reflecting the play style of other (RL) people associated with the game making and, at a guess, future “celebrity” involvement.

    Wicked. I’d like to see something similar for RTS games like Starcraft…would be cool if I could download a ‘Bot’ version of one of the top korean players…or even a celebrity special like Jonathan Ross ^^
