It's Marvel 3, Baby!
Happy Marvel Day! After 10 years of anticipation, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is out today! I'm not even sure if my copy arrived yet, but you should try finding me (CarmineMac) on PSN or XBL.
What else happened on launch day? When MvC2 came out ten years ago, launch day meant that the game was released and would remain as-is for ten years. With MvC3's release comes the announcement of the first of many inevitable DLC packages. Capcom-Unity has some details and screenshots of the costume pack that will be released on March 1st. Although the highly demanded "Bucky" Captain America is included, am I the only one who thinks that this is too soon? If Capcom expects the game to sell well and be long-lived, trying to cash in on DLC so early may be putting the cart before the horse.
