Desk has been on a roll in 2011 so far releasing some insane combo and execution videos for Super Street Fighter 4. He just uploaded a teaser video for Marvel vs Capcom 3, and of course a game like this with such a wide open combo system, one can only imagine what he is up to.
The first batch of DLC for Marvel vs Capcom 3 will be available starting March 1st! Leading the way will be a new costume pack, which appears to feature new alternate outfits for Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Ryu, Chris Redfield, and Dante, as well as the first Shadow Mode DLC pack. The Costume Pack will cost $5 on PSN or 400MS Points on Xbox Live. Also on the way are the first two DLC characters, Jill Vallentine and Shuma-Gorath. Capcom Unity implies that these will arrive on the 1st as well, but we've heard reports of March 15th. We will keep you updated when we get clarification.
A bunch of screenshots for the new alternate costume pack can be found in this image gallery! What do you think?
Capcom has released two new trailers for Marvel vs Capcom 3. One is the Episode Four trailer which shows more of the game's cinematics. The other is a trailer showcasing the game's final roster in style!

Is there a character that you would like to see added to the Marvel vs Capcom 3 roster via DLC in the future? If so, Capcom Unity wants to know which characters that the fans really want. They are taking votes separately for Marvel characters and Capcom characters with the results being forwarded to Seth Killian and Ryota Niitsuma, where they could possibly influence future character selection.
Voting ends Feb 28th at midnight PST, so head over there, make an account if you don't have one already, and let your voice be heard! If you don't, you have no right to complain about future characters. Just remember to read the rules first.
Here are the voting threads at Capcom Unity: Capcom characters -- Marvel Characters

After last month's announcement that publisher Zen United would be bringing Arcana Heart 3 over to Europe, speculation was high that Aksys would follow suit by releasing it over in North America. Well, as it turns out, they are; Aksys announced today that they'll be bringing Arcana Heart 3 over to the PlayStation 3 as a digital only release.
It may be a digital only release, but it won't be without its full array of features. You'll still get the game's full cast of characters, netplay and everything else from the original Japanese console release. So what do you guys think? Disappointed that there's no word of an Xbox 360 release? Excited? Let us know!
Our very own Haunts has been working hard at bringing a whole bunch of Marvel vs Capcom 3 content your way for the past several weeks. Part of that content is his in-depth review of Marvel vs Capcom 3 for gaming website 1UP.com, and that review is now available over on 1UP for you to check out!
Haunts' review takes an in-depth look at various aspects of the game from the controversial X-Factor to a general overview of the general gameplay mechanics. Here's an excerpt from the review to get you started:
"The first thing that struck me about Marvel vs. Capcom 3 -- besides its insanely detailed and gorgeous graphics -- is how smooth and responsive the gameplay is. The hit detection and overall movement feels very similar to traditional, 2D sprite-based fighting games from days gone by. The game is an absolute blast to play due to the fluidity of the gameplay, and that has a lot to do with it being so hard to put down even when you tell yourself 'This is the last match I'll play tonight. Really!'"
To check out the whole thing, head on over to this link. And while you're there, be sure to also check out Haunts' other article for 1UP, "Ten Ways to Beat Your Friends at Marvel vs. Capcom 3". It's a useful primer for anyone new to the game, whether they're familiar with fighting games or not.
As the game nears closer and closer to release, more and more wild combos are being discovered just about every day. Tragic's been pumping out a lot of these combos himself, and he has some new combos up on his YouTube channel featuring Wesker, Phoenix (including Dark Phoenix, of course) and Iron Man. You can check them all out below, and be sure to subscribe to Tragic's YouTube channel for more vids if you haven't already!
There's been a whole bunch of King of Fighters XIII this week, hasn't there? Today's footage comes from GAME a-cho's YouTube channel, and there's just under two hours worth of footage between the two vids. The quality of the matches is great as usual, so give it a look if you're fiending for some KoFXIII footage.
Ne0Russell is back with yet another combo and movelist video after last week's pretty awesome video for Yang. This one covers Yun's movelist as well as a pretty insane amount of his combos, even without his super combos being listed. If you've got an interest in Yun, check it out!
With Tekken Tag Tournament 2 being shown at AOU very soon, it's expected that we would see a bunch of new media for the game, and Famitsu is giving us just that. They uploaded a ton a of new screenshots for the game, and also have a write up of some of the features in the game. Unfortunately I don't speak or read Japanese so I cant give you a rundown of the article, but you can check out all the screenshots by clicking here.
If you missed the stream yesterday, Ov3rheadGreg uploaded the Grand Finals of the Plaza Capcom Cup which was a 3v3 SSF4: AE tournament. Now, it's been a while since I've watched much AE, much less played it, but its pretty crazy to see how refined and well, cheap, Kindevu's Yun is at this point. Check out the full video below.
Sp00ky just uploaded the epic FT10 Marvel vs Capcom 3 set between Marn and NerdJosh. If you missed this on the stream earlier today, be sure to check it out as it ended up being really entertaining thanks to both players. The set is split into three parts which you can check out below. Subscribe to Team Spooky on YouTube.
GamesRadar produced a pretty awesome video that takes a look back at the Versus series with Capcom's Seth Killian. Seth gives a basic run-through of how the mechanics have evolved over the lengthy series history and it all ends with him talking up Marvel vs Capcom 3 as the culmination of over 10 years worth of experience.
Even if you're already familiar with the Versus series' past, it's still a nice look at the evolution that all started with COTA. Check it out by heading over to this link.
If you haven't had the chance to check out Marvel vs Capcom 3's mission mode in action, or just want to see what all of the missions for several characters are like, VesperArcade, ZeroXZ03 and STBALLA1990 have you covered. The vids cover all missions for Dante, Wolverine, Wesker, Zero, Iron Man and Akuma.
Hey guys, WorstGief checking in with Super. Here in Europe, Marvel isn't released until the 18th, so instead of sitting here fiending for the game I thought I'd make a video showing a lot of ways to land ultra 1 with Zangief. Enjoy! Or don't, if you are on the receiving end...
Thanks for tuning in yesterday. A special shoutout to all the viewers and donators, especially Dan Smith. Tonight we're going to keep the action moving with more Marvel 3, so tune in!
We've raised over $1700, which is a huge portion of the new equipment, and now we're ready to keep things going and keep the hype moving.

Maximilian has been spending some time with Marvel vs Capcom 3 ahead of its release and has recorded some pretty slick online matches for your enjoyment, with the first match featuring none other than Marn himself. All four of the video's matches are pretty good, but if you watch anything, you should definitely watch the first match against Marn. Check it out after the jump!
