    this is crap. Capcom knows how to milk people of their money, these characters could easily be DLC. Next their going to make Marvel vs Capcom 3 Ultra Edition, then Super Special Edition. ugh…

      They announced 12 new characters correct? Let’s do some math shall we? 12 x 4.99 is 59.98. Now that’s just characters. I believe there are some new levels with the game as well, among other things. Question is, would you have rather spent that 60$ on downloading charcters or an enhanced version of the game? It always pays to wait to spend your money.
