Marvel Vs Capcom 3: No New DLC Characters – Gamers Feel Cheated?

We have some worrying news for those of you with a copy of Marvel Vs Capcom 3, as it looks as if Capcom has no plans at the moment to bring further new characters to the game as DLC. There goes our hopes of getting Venom, Charlie and Carnage in the game.

This isn’t a rumor either, as Capcom has boldly stated on their EU Twitter account, that the game is ‘done and dusted’, with no further announcements planned at the moment. This is an obvious cause of concern for gamers who are currently not satisfied with the final roster for the game.

Don’t forget that Capcom has already released two characters as DLC in Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath but of course, they are not the most ‘desirable’ characters in the game, unlike Venom and co like we mentioned above.

Hopefully this is all a misunderstanding and Capcom will clarify the situation for MvC3 owners soon, as it would be pretty outrageous if Capcom are not planning to release any more new characters this year. We know a lot of you are not too happy with the current playable characters in the game, so let us know your feelings on this.

Would you feel cheated if we don’t see any more new characters soon?

UPDATE: Capcom has now stated that they were actually referring to Super Street Fighter IV, and they posted MvC3 by mistake. So it was all a misunderstanding after all. Thanks for the kind messages from you though telling us to do our research.

I'd really like to see Vergil and Sieg from Chaos Legion cos this game has so much potential. Two whole franchises and barely enough characters to fill one! It has turned into a bit of an embarrasment on Capcom's part. Those promises aren't going to be fulfilled any time soon. We are all clamouring for new characters but they turn a blind eye to us. Plus, the rebalancing has to be immediate. Someone mentioned Phoenix earlier and I wholeheartedly agree. A bit more health because despite her special ability, she just doesn't cut the role of planet destroying psychob**ch like… Read more »

capcom has just gone downhill with a bunch of disappointing games, RE 5 and SPECIALLY THIS ONE! i busted my self to get the game period and i even busted my butt more for the special edition and it was not worth it one bit. Now i get the news that no more DLC, JEEZ!!!

MORTAL KOMBAT RULES!! BEEN WAITING FOR MVC3 FOR 10 YEARS HUGE LET DOWN. THAT LIMITED EDITION MV3 HAS ALREADY GOT A INCH OF DUST ON IT. ONCE YOU RUN THROUGH ALL CHARACTERS GETS OLD REAL QUICK… MV2 = 56 CHARACTERS MV3 = 40 CHARACTERS. SOMEONE AT CAPCOM IS SMOKING THE BIGGEST BLUNT AT MARVEL HEADQUARTERS. WERE THE HELL IS THE DLC WE ARE MISSING 16 – 20 CHARACTERS……………….. UNEXCEPTABLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO COMMENT EVERYONE KNOWS

I agree that the new roster does disappoint me, I want the original Jill Valentine and I want them to put my Cammy back in the roster those two were my favorite in the last game & my overall two favorite female game characters ever. I do also miss having Gambit on the team

I think they should put in Mystique(which would be cool to use her cloning ability), Cable, Gambit, Megaman, Iceman, Rogue, Rhino(from Spiderman), Cammy, Human Torch, Scarlett Witch(would be a great premier game to feature her on), Pyro…… Just sooooooo many that would be so awesome… Hopefully they won't add Cyclops, Ken (in my opinion is exactly like Ryu), Roll, or anymore Dalkstalker characters…..

it would be really stupid of them to not make any new characters cause they could triple the money they made from the game with character dlc charging 5 bucks a character its just common sense new characters = a shit load of money

the twitter post was a mistake.They meant super street fighter 4.
In my opinion they should add: the character from vanqushed,virgil from dvmc,Venom(an updated version) ,Carnage,apocalypse(a new version),Gene from Godhand( that'd be so hawsome), a classic zombie boss from resident evil(like tyrant or nemesis).Blade,Blade,blade,blade,cable,Spyral,megamen.,bullseye,cyclops and maybe the goblin…
I really hope they dont put useless chars like : elektra,the guy from dead rising(we alredy got chris) or iceman

Of course I would feel cheated. The two bottom slots are left open and they've left us hanging for quite a while now. We all know that it will be Frank West and Dr. Octopus anyway but I would really enjoy a surprise for once from Capcom. They've got a serious competition up against Mortal Kombat next week and if they'd rather have us spend more money on MK DLC then we can arrange for that because the hit point system is just so corrupt. Phoenix should be able to go up against Sentinel. Over powered characters and all sorts… Read more »

Lul…ACCIDENT…Already been confirmed that they're referring to Super Street Fighter Four…This was confirmed like a day or two ago…nice attempt at attention though 😉

of course i feel cheated……other than better graphics, but of course expected better :-(…The roster on the 2nd version is better. For being the newest i thought it would blow the other one out the water but, ehhh

Actually Capcom corrected themselves by saying they meant Super Street Fighter 4. Maybe somebody should do some research.

This will be high way robbery, they had stated that the game will include Downloadable characters months before the game even came out. Shuma Gorath and Jill were already in the game but just weren't completely finished. Let the bitchin begin cause they will deserve it.

This has already been retracted by Capcom. Maybe do a little research before publishing your post next time, buddy?

Actually I checked another site and it says there are no more DLC for Super Street fighter 4, that was an error on the tweet. They debuncked the error saying that Super Street fighter 4 was done.

Uh, guys, you do know they posted another twitter post saying that they meant Super Street Fighter IV and not MvC3, right?

P.S. You know what I hate? Websites that love to grab news long after it's happened and/or after it's been de-confirmed. It really just means that they're begging for attention but wind up getting negative attention instead of positive.

Way to fail with this. If you kept an eye on the twitter account you'd know it was a type-o. They meant ssf4 and later corrected the mistake.

Capsom absolutely robbed us! the final roster for the game is the worst ive seen! reminds me of there last faliur capcom fighting jam! capcom you can do better! you have let us all down! look on every single website on the internet when it comes to polls for which characters we would like to see and act accordingly you owe us that much? we purchased the game didnt we?

Wheres gambit? venom? ken? strider? i could go on! get your finger out capcom and do something about your let down of a game! we waited 10 years dont forget!!

Iceman
