Time seemed to crawl from the time Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 was announced to when it was finally released. I dribbled away hours checking to see if there were any new updates on shoryuken.com. Finally, this past Tuesday at around 4:30 p.m. there was a knock, knock, knock on my door. “Why yes, UPS man, I will sign for that package!!” Waiting and anticipating had ended; finally a copy of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 (special edition) was in my hands.
The special edition packaging was well worth the extra cash. The game was packed in a luxurious metal tin rather than the standard plastic DVD case. Some vinyl stickers were included (ok…what the hell am I going to do with those???) as well as a collectors comic book filled with promotional art and two special codes; one code good for a month subscription to Marvel digital comics and the other good for 2 DLC characters, Resident Evil’s Jill Valentine and Marvel’s weird eyeball monster Shuma-Gorath. Blah, blah, blah…on to the game.
