Marvel is working with Capcom again on a new project called Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite but they put out a special digital release for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 to tide the wait on PS4. But the game is also coming to the PC and Xbox One in the near future. Due to the game using Marvel IP, many wonder if a retail copy would be possible; preservation on the title is important for this current generation release.
Thankfully a retail release is in fact happening!
For fans of the Marvel vs. Capcom series, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be available digitally on both Xbox One™ and Steam beginning on March 7th for $24.99. Additionally, limited edition physical versions of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One™ will be available on the same day for $29.99 including an exclusive comic! Hit the jump for more details.
The limited edition physical versions (PlayStation®4, Xbox One™) will feature everything included in the standard digital release, plus updated cover art and an exclusive comic featuring original art from Marvel’s own Sean Chen and Gerardo Sandoval. The all-new comic book is a must-have for collectors and fans of the series and tells the story of two colliding universes featuring some of the most iconic Marvel and Capcom characters in its 10 full pages of action packed story. To secure your copy of this limited release you can preorder now at GameStop and EB Games.
While it’s a limited release, you can pre-order it now to ensure you get your retail copy. If you love the Marvel vs. Capcom series, I highly encourage you pick up this retail release in case the game get’s taken down (like it did on PS3, PS Vita and Xbox 360).
