Jill Valentine, Shuma Gorath for MVC3

With Special Edition in the US.

Resident Evil's Jill Valentine and Capcom's Shuma Gorath will be downloadable characters for upcoming fighting game Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 – in the US, at least.

US shop GameStop (spotted by Destructoid) appears to have jumped the gun by revealing the innards of the game's Special Edition – it comes with a steelbook case with exclusive art, a prologue comic book and a one-month subscription to Marvel Digital Comics.

More importantly to fans, though, is the inclusion of downloadable characters. Four weeks after the game launches you'll be able to use included codes to get Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath.

The listing also reveals a February 15th 2011 release date, but that's unconfirmed at this stage.

Capcom was unable to comment when contacted by Eurogamer, but we understand the Special Edition will not be released in the UK.

Instead, if downloadable characters are made available to European gamers, they will likely be pre-order bonuses.

Overnight Capcom revealed two more characters from the game's bulging roster: Capcom's Zero and Marvel's She-Hulk.
