Capcom Reveals Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Post-Release 'Shadow Mode' DLC

Capcom has announced a new mode will make its way into Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in the form of downloadable content. Squaring players off against "custom-built" teams modeled after the gameplay style of "famous players," the mode will be released in a series of downloadable packs, each containing three unique teams.

The feature--dubbed 'Shadow Mode'--utilizes the "programmed special techniques and preferences" of hardcore fighting game junkies to deliver, what we can only assume, are embarassing losses to add to your offline MvC3 record. The A.I. personality DLC will launch with a set derived from the gameplay stylings of MvC3 producer Ryota Niitsuma, assistant producer Akihito Kadowaki and an unnamed QA team leader.

More personalities will launch later and Capcom teases the packs "may feature some personalities you already know." We assume that means pros like Daigo are totally going to run an A.I. train on our MvC3 records.

Shacknews contacted Capcom to find out whether the content would be premium or offered for free but the publisher told us they were not sparing any additional details on the feature at this time.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds launches in North America on February 15.

    Interesting. Although the pros will certainly be beating their own A.I., it's nevertheless kinda cool.
