Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Patch date revealed, Heroes and Heralds mode included

December 19th.

That's the date Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) will receive a patch on Xbox 360 and PS3 according to Inside-Games (via Event Hubs).

Free DLC Heroes and Heralds mode will also be included. The mode was announced at this year's New York Comic-Con. It was later revealed that the mode would be playable online.

The patch and DLC isn't the only interesting bit of news:

Surprisingly, the PS Vita version will have replays. This is interesting since the console versions have yet to see the mode.

No word on if the Xbox 360 and PS3 version will see a replay mode.

While the patch in UMvC3 has been confirmed to get rid of bugs in the game, there's no word on if there are any nerfs. It seems unlikely that there will be any since Capcom has been quiet just one week shy of the patch's release.
