Virtua Fighter 4 EVO
based its high level AI off of the top Virtua Fighter 4
players of the time. Tekken 6
included "Ghosts", downloads of people playing online that would mimic the fighting styles of those you have fought in the past. Now Marvel vs. Capcom 3
brings us fighting fans the Shadow Mode.
Exclusively revealed to Gamespot, Shadow Mode allows you to download packs of AI characters based off of the fighting styles of Capcom staff and "famous players from the fighting game scene." The first pack, available sometime during March, will contain teams modeled after producer Ryota Niitsuma, associate producer Akihito Kadowaki and a QA Tester.
No famous players have been announced, but hopefully they will make a Justin Wong pack.
Here are some shots of the Shadow Mode in action:
