Marvel Vs Capcom 3, first DLC pack announced

Today those lucky sods in America get Marvel Vs Capcom 3, while i myself am stuck here in the UK having to wait until Friday. But some good news out of today is that, Capcom have announced the first DLC pack for the game.

If you didn't already know, players who buy the special edition version of the title get free DLC characters, Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine. They become available on March 15th. But Capcom announced today, with the MvC3 release in North America, is that on March 1st the first DLC pack will be released.

Featured in the DLC pack will be, a variety of extra costumes which are said to completely change the appearance of some characters, by not just changing the colour of the character, but stance and posture too. Also the previously announced Shadow Mode will also be available. The DLC pack isn't going to set you back much either with it being $5 on the PSN and 400MSP, quite a good deal in my opinion.

What isn't clear is whether special edition buyers will get Jill and Shuma Gorath earlier than anticipated, to coincide with the release of the first DLC pack. Also, if they do have to wait a couple of weeks after, will they get the costumes and shadow mode free with the characters? Also on March 15th will players who didn't buy the special edition, be able to purchase by characters and if so, for how much?

Capcom have promised a video within the next couple of days, so please check back for more news on the DLC.
