Capcoms Unveils Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Release Date, Other Info

A few minutes ago Capcom dropped a ton of useful information on their upcoming Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, most crucially that the guaranteed-blockbuster fighting game hits store shelves on February 15, 2011.

Along with the newly revealed box art pictured above, here's a list of info from the e-mail Capcom's PR folk just sent my way:

- She-Hulk and Zero are the latest members of the game's 40ish character cast.

- Capcom has confirmed the existence of the Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds Special Edition which includes a "steelbook case featuring exclusive art work," a "comic/art book (a 12-page prologue comic, written by Marvel writer Frank Tieri, plus campaign art and a curated selection of fan art)," a "1-month Subscription to Marvel Digital Comics, providing unlimited online access to Marvel content" and "2 Playable DLC Characters — Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine (content is available 4 weeks post-launch)."

- People who pre-order the game through GameStop will get three exclusive stickers. Capcom describes them as "three exclusive Console Decals to spruce up their hardware—MvC3 style. The collectible decals feature Ryu, Wolverine, Deadpool and Dante, plus the essential move-set for each hero."

Don't get me wrong, stickers are way tubular, but since I'd like to see GameStop go down in flames, with CEOs and shareholders screaming and cursing as they're eaten by scarabs and CHUDs, I urge all of you to pick up a copy from Amazon.

At least then you won't be supporting a company that funds terrorism, vampires and robotic pedophiles.

(Allegedly.)
