Players who fire up Marvel vs. Capcom 3
in North America today will be able to purchase the first two downloadable characters for the game. As previously announced, both characters will cost 400 MS points / $4.99 each on the respective platforms.
There have been numerous mentions of a delay in the characters due to the events in Japan over the weekend. This delay does not affect the North American release, only the Japanese and possibly the European. The characters will be released in these areas at a later date, once things calm down in Japan.
I hope to provide in depth impressions on both characters later this week as I plan on downloading them both tonight.
