Tsunami’s To Blame For Lack Of Marvel Vs. Capcom DLC


It turns out that Mother Nature is to blame for the minimal amount of DLC that Capcom released for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.

This week’s unveiling of Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 was a bit of a surprise to fans of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, since there hasn’t been much post-release DLC for the latter yet. According to producer Ryota Niitsuma, this was because the tsunami that hit the country in March.

Speaking to Destructoid at Comic-Con, Niitsuma explained that the game’s development team actually planned to release a lot of DLC for the game, but mother nature got in the way, which “threw off our whole development schedule”:

“After the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 there were plans to release DLC. But, as you know, less than a month after the game was released we had the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.”

As a result, Capcom decided to release the proposed DLC on a new disc, along with adjusted gameplay, new content, and and a spectator mode. As a result, the makeup of Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is split “about half and half” between the originally-planned DLC and completely new content.
