Rumor – UMvC3 expansion releasing in July

Saturday, 10th March 2012 19:31 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

A NeoGAF user has posted a picture he snapped of a placeholder which popped up on the computers at the GameStop he works at. The placeholder states that eight new challengers will “join the fight” in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 on July 3. The computer entry stated the DLC voucher can be purchased at GameStop for $14.99 and that on July 24, a packaged disc version will be released for $39.99 – which sounds like a re-release of the game with the added content to us. In response to the query of its legitimacy over Twitter, Capcom’s Ryota Niitsuma cryptically stated: “The DLC costumes are out, and for now that is all.” We’ll send a mail. Until we hear something back though, keep it tucked away as rumor.

    Yes, go Capcom. First release a super barebones version a year ago. Then release an “Ultimate” version after 8 months and now add a little to that and make it a new version.

    And why not? They did so with original Street Fighter 4 which was showered by praise from everyone and nobody said anything about how barebones the original package was. Then Super SF4. Then Super SF4 Arcade edition. Then Super SF4 Arcade Edition 2012…

    @1 as long as its available via dlc as well, you shouldn’t complain. Mvc3 was a disgrace, with how little it had in it. Looking forward to having 8 new chars to play with :) if the story is true
