Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Comic Book & Console Skins – Preorder Bonus

Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is one of this generation of gaming most anticipated beat-em up titles. Capcom offered fans and early adopters of the series a special Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 comic book available at all the major video game retailers in Australia (EB Games, GAME, JB Hi-Fi).

The Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 comic book is  48-pages of visual eye-candy that contains more than just a simple comic. The comic included traces events featured in the game providing back-story.

Character art used for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 are also featured along with campaign art and a promotional art section showing the works of some of the most well-known names in the industry.

EB Games offered an extra inclusion, a console skin pack which none of the other retailers had access to. Three console skins were included in the pack of fan favourites Ryu and Wolverine. The last skin featured two new-comers to the the series, Deadpool and Dante.

Back of each console skin details the move sets for the characters featured on the front. Smaller in size than an XBOX360 or PlayStation 3 console and are more sticker set than console skin in my opinion.

Surprisingly for a big release title, Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 did not receive a special edition in Australia so these pre-order bonus items with a standard edition game is as good as it gets.
