No more DLC

#1 Posted by BaconBits (57 posts) -

Sucks, kotaku pulled  a quote from Capcom Europe' s twitter, 
"MvsC3 is out, done and dusted, no further announcements planned"
 Remember all those people worrying about how "Capcom is going to nickel and dime us to death with DLC characters!" ? Well, i guess those fears were unfounded. Guess people can stop asking for Phoenix Wright and Megaman too.  Anyone else bummed?

That doesn't necessarily mean they are done with DLC.

They are also not Midway and I'm sure MVC3 has done really well.

Internet rumors, always a 100% accurate source of information. 


You can bet there will be more. The fans want it, and Capcom wants our money.

MVC3 not getting more than 2 extra DLC characters? Please, Capcom will enter a couple more, there is plenty of room on the roster right now to make the selection a perfect square.

I don't know, you would think Captivate would be the time to announce new DLC, but nada.

I think that's their way of saying "there's not going to be a Super Marvel Vs. Capcom 3."

#7 Posted by BaconBits (57 posts) -
@GlenTennis:
"Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3" maybe?

Pretty sure there was another tweet correcting that.

Also I don't bother listening to Capcom twitter accounts, considering the kind of shit they let Ono say.

I dunno, it's fun to think of the characters you'd like for them to add, but realistically the odds of them choosing characters I personally would spend $5 on is/was pretty slim anyway.  Like you mentioned Phoenix Wright and Megaman... I wouldn't buy either of those.

first of all,, this was already confirmed to be about SF4, not mvc3, that was a typo (goes in line with seth also saying they are done with sf4 after AE)

 

second, even if it was about mvc3, that you would believe a twitter post to be ultimatum is pretty funny this day and age when companies deny something and confirm it the next week

I hate DLC.

With it being capcom I'd not be too surprised if they left the DLC thing alone for a while & do some late in the year to try to get people back into playing it.

Even if  they wanted to make more DLC I think Japan might be a little occupied right now. Plus they would just charge to much for them anyways.

I don't think Capcom will not add more characters for this game.

 

I even think, they'll add like 10 characters  or more

It wasn't really a typo, it was Capcom Europe's community manager not knowing what the american community managers knew. It's pretty sloppy community management in either case. If you go to capcom europe's twitter feed, you can see the back and forth between the respective CM's.

Capcom really needs to get it's shit together. Trolling to keep the community involved is one thing, especially when the game isn't out and there's a lot of speculation in the air. But all their doing now is pissing off paying customers, 1 week before their biggest competitor's game releases. It's not smart business.

Seriously, i will buy this game when they release venom. But until then...FUCK YOU CAPCOM. Or carnage. But venom is preferred.

Meh. . . I'm pretty done with this game anyway. It doesn't have the lasting appeal that SF4 has had.

Hmmm.... I enjoy playing MvC3 more than SF4.

This must be their joke for april fool

@Pibo47:  I am with you the whole way, Venom or Carnage are easily my favorite comic book baddies OF ALL TIME

and besides they have already released Jill Valentine as DLC and some other Marvel hero/villain whose name escapes me...
AND I WAS PROMISED FRANK WEST DAMMIT!!

If they're going to keep putting out Shadow Battles, I really don't see them not taking the opportunity to make more DLC characters.

#21 Posted by Yanngc33 (4496 posts) -

As if they're done selling us costumes. I bet we've stil got at least 10 months of MvC 3 DLC to sift through before they consider themselves "done"

I still think they will release new DLC characters during Mortal Kombat release dates

I'm waiting for Squirrel Girl the most....

relieved?


i believe MK9 have surpass MvC3 in popularity atm.
Lets see what happens when SSF4 AE comes out.

or maybe DOA:3D will be crowned 2011 Fighting genre queen.
#26 Posted by blueduck (964 posts) -

MvC3 wasn't that great and everyone stopped playing it.

MK9 would easily surpass MVC3 at least in the states. The thing about Mortal Kombat is that it has always sold well in the States despite what most of us thought of the quality.

A lot of MK fans didn't necessarily need a well balanced and mechanically sound game to be sold on the franchise.

Saving all the requested characters for Super MvC3, no doubt. Why sell them for $5 a pop when you can sell a whole new game for $40?

the only reason why  MK is selling more is because of the large content on the MK game, which MvC3 doesn't really have.  but well, when it comes to playing, MvC3 is more enjoying to play. And i believe MvC3 game will still boost up its sales with DLC characters and the super version.
