Update on missing DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on PS Vita store

Update on missing DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on PS Vita store Mikeeb posted a blog over on Capcom-Unity addressing the issues with some of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's downloadable content. Jill, Shuma-Gorath and the Costume Pack 1 are not available for download on the PS Vita store.

We've gotten a number of reports from you guys that some of the DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on PlayStation Vita is missing from the PlayStation Vita storefront. I can now confirm that the Jill Valentine character, Shuma-Gorath character, and Costume Pack 1 (Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Chris, Ryu, Dante) aren't available for download on the Vita store just yet. All other DLC content for UMVC3 Vita is unaffected and available now.

We looked into this and discovered some last minute issues associating the content with UMVC3 Vita and making sure it would share properly between your PS3 and PS Vita. Since these DLC packs originally were associated with the original Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on PS3 we needed to make sure that all the content would both function and share properly between whatever version you might be playing on. Everything has been addressed and Jill, Shuma and Costume Pack 1 will be available on the PlayStation Vita storefront next week Tuesday (2/28) during the regularly scheduled PSN weekly update.

Thanks and apologies for the inconvenience!

The Beast is unleashed explained: EVO moment #37 analysis by Seth Killian

Often voted the most memorable moment in competitive gaming, EVO moment #37 is a clip seen by countless gamers.

Penny Arcade decided to consult with Capcom's Seth Killian to break down what was actually happening in the infamous MCZ|Daigo (Ken) vs. EG|Justin Wong (Chun-Li) match, back before these guys even had acronyms before their names. Here's a snip from the piece.

“Justin had developed this style with Chun-Li where he played very conservatively,” Killian explained. “He’s trying to do nothing and say look, Chun-Li’s options in this game are so safe that I don’t actually need to do anything to attack. I can just whittle you down until I win.”

Not only was this a sound, if slightly lame, strategy, it was working against one of the best players in the world. Umehara tends to be a much more aggressive player, and the strain of playing against Wong’s ultra-conservative Chun-Li was beginning to show. “Daigo, in rare form, actually seemed to be upset. He was playing recklessly,” Killian said. “This is one of the joys of fighting game play, you can actually put someone off their game, and get into their head until they start making mistakes.”
