No GravatarCapcom has unleashed a slew of new info on Marvel vs. Capcom 3 over the past few weeks. Capcom announces a date for the release of the game. The games launch date is February 15th 2011.

This game is showing an abundance of promise and the excitement level is off the charts. Capcom is very pleased with the response from fans of the franchise and fighting games fans all over the world. Now that the release date has been revealed, Capcom wants to unveil a ton of new information about the game.

Seeing as this is the season for giving, we have decided to drop a ton of new Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds information, covering the Special Edition, preorders, new characters, and the release of the box art. Starting off, we are pleased to announce that Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is launching on February 15th, 2011.

On top of that, yesterday it was revealed that She-Hulk from the Marvel universe and Zero from the Capcom universe are joining the roster of characters for Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. She-Hulk’s mean-and-green attitude and Zero’s high-tech prowess will be welcome additions to the highly-anticipated fighting title.

Those looking to dive deeper into this epic fighting experience will get the following:
– Steelbook case featuring exclusive art work
– Comic/Art book- A 12-page prologue comic, written by Marvel writer Frank Tieri, plus campaign art and a curated selection of fan art.
– 1-month Subscription to Marvel Digital Comics, providing unlimited online access to Marvel content
– 2 Playable DLC Characters – Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine.  Content is available 4 weeks post-launch.

Indeed, not only are we announcing the Special Edition, but we’re piling on the announcement of two new playable characters:

First, your favorite cap-poppin’ zombie-killer Jill Valentine is back for another round. She’s sporting her Resident Evil 5 battlesuit and packing serious heat. She’ll be joined by Capcom comrades Arthur, Nathan “Rad” Spencer, Wesker, Tron Bonne, Viewtiful Joe, Amaterasu, Dante, Ryu, Morrigan, Chris Redfield, Felicia, Trish and Chun-Li.

Next-up is everyone’s favorite one-eyed demon Shuma-Gorath, famous for delivering his unconventional brand of tentacle-based combat with a little magic thrown in. Other Marvel characters include Magneto, M.O.D.O.K., Spider-Man, X-23, Dormmamu, Thor, Deadpool, Hulk, Wolverine, Iron Man, Captain America, Doctor Doom and Super-Skrull.

For those that go out and pre-order the game today, GameStop has something exclusive to reward your good taste.  Gamers will be able to pick up a set of three exclusive Console Decals to spruce up their hardware—MvC3 style.  The collectible decals feature Ryu, Wolverine, Deadpool and Dante, plus the essential move-set for each hero. 

Adi Granov, the phenomenal artist that designed the armor for the Iron Man movies, is the cover artist behind this riveting piece. His unique approach to illustration with digital painting enables him to blend a near photo-real aesthetic with a surreal interpretation of texture and color. The result is a compelling art piece depicting an epic battle between Marvel and Capcom characters.

It’s an exciting package we have coming next year. Get set for the ultimate 3-on-3 faceoff when Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds hits PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 15, 2011.

Now we have pictures of the Collector edition packages and the new cover art for the regular editions. So enjoy the pics and go to your local games retailer or online store and pre order this awesome game.
