Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3X rumor untrue

The Ultimate expansion will not have an expansion.

This past weekend, a rumor on NeoGAF sent the fighting game community on a frenzy. The rumor claimed that Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) would be receiving an expansion titled "3X."

The poster claimed to have worked for GameStop and that the retailer's computer system contained the following information: "Expand the ultimate experience. 8 new challengers join the fight!"

Prices claimed by the "tipster" were $14.99 for a DLC voucher and $39.99 for a disc version. So what does Capcom have to say about all of this?


From Capcom VP, Christian Svensson (via Capcom-Unity):

"Just got back from GDC so I’ll make this short: that is completely fake."

From UMvC3 producer, Ryota Niitsuma (via Twitter):

"The DLC costumes are out, and for now that is all."

From community manager, Seth Killian (via Twitter): 

"Sorry guys, <3 photoshop, but no UMVC3x coming from Capcom."
