Marvel vs. Capcom 3's character roster is expanding at the rate of moderately-sized star going supernova at the moment. Just hours ago, our very own Mr. Tyler Nagata brought you the news that She-Hulk and Zero are in, and now, thanks to the ever-flapping tongues of loose-lipped retail, we know that Resident Evil's Jill Valentine and eldtritch cosmic demon - and nemesis of both Dr. Strange and Conan - Shuma-Gorath have made the cut.
In a GameStop ad detailing the game's Collector's Edition, early access to two DLC characters is listed. Those two characters are the aforementioned beret-wearing zombie killer and nothing-wearing, tentacled world killer. Both will be available (presumably at a price) for standard edition buyers, but only after coveters of higher-priced shiny versions have had four weeks to practice with them.
As for shiny things, the CE also comes in a steelbook case with special artwork, includes a 12-page prologue comic book by Marvel's Frank Teri, and comes packing a one-month subscription to Marvel's Digital Comics service. It's yours for $69.99 (no word on ye olde European monetries yet), and the GameStop version also comes with some 5 x 7 vinyl decals with which to deface your console, should you choose to pre-order.
So? Excited? Will you be grabbing the Collector's Edition when it hits in February, or are you happy to wait a month to get your hands on Jill and old eyeball face?
