If you own a copy of Marvel Vs Capcom 3 and previously voiced your disapproval over the Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 package which requires an additional fee to pay, we have some exciting news for you which may tempt you to pick up the new game.

UMvC3 is due for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 sometime in November and further footage of the game was unveiled at the recent New York Comic Con event over the last few days. As with previous Comic Con unveils for Marvel games, the news is pretty big as Capcom will be releasing a free piece of DLC called ‘Heroes and Heralds’ and it will be available to download sometime after launch.

The DLC aims to ‘unbalance’ gameplay just for fun, and will allow players to cancel specials into specials of their own, perform parries and use crazy abilities such as invisibility, super armor, projectile invincibility and more.

These new abilites will be unlocked using a new card system which will come included in the Heroes and Heralds pack, with Capcom stating that there will be over 100 cards and a total of 1.12 million different combinations when players equip three cards at a time. Sounds pretty crazy doesn’t it? – We’re just glad it’s free.

That’s not all either, as Capcom also unveiled at Comic Con that a new character will be playable in Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3. However, it’s no ordinary character though, as it’s none other than big boss Galactus himself. There’s no solid details from Capcom on when he will be out or how much he’ll cost, but we’ve included a shaky cam clip below from Comic Con which shows how he will play in the game. Watch it while you can though, as Capcom will probably remove it – being the spoil sports that they are.

So there we have it. Finally some good news from fans perspective that Capcom is doing something good and dishing out a free helping of DLC. Does this change your mind about picking up Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, or do you still believe that the company should give more back to the players of MVC3? Give us your thoughts on this one.
