Fight against developer AI in Marvel vs. Capcom 3's DLC 'Shadow Mode'


Did you ever want the chance to take on a fighting game's developers at, like, 2AM? Capcom is giving you the chance to approximate that experience with some upcoming DLC for Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. "Shadow Mode" comprises downloadable AI characters designed to play in the style of real people.

The first pack will include teams imitating the play styles of producer Ryota Niitsuma, assistant producer Akihito Kadowaki, and "a QA team leader." Capcom teases that future DLC "may feature some personalities you already know." We're holding out for an AI Daigo to destroy us.

This idea of AI versions of real people is also being implemented in another upcoming fighter. Dead or Alive Dimensions builds an AI profile of the player, then beams that out via the 3DS's "StreetPass" communication to other players nearby, allowing them to fight against a robot version of you.
