Marvel VS Capcom 3 has yet to hit stores and already Capcom is rolling out announcements of upcoming downloadable content. While DLC should be no surprise, especially with the announcement of Jill Valentine and Shuma-Gorath being DLC characters a few months back, this particular DLC mode is probably not what many people expected to see.
Called “Shadow Mode”, this new mode will pit players against various AI-controlled teams based on famous players and custom built teams with their own special techniques. Each Shadow Mode DLC pack comes with three AI-teams, the first set to be released including AIs based on MvC3 Producer Ryota Niitsuma, Assistant Producer Akihito Kadowaki, and a QA team leader.
Seems like an interesting and challenging idea if done properly, especially for players that really want to test their skills. However, it’s anyone’s guess as to who else we can expect in a Shadow Mode DLC pack. At this point, only time will tell.
