Still on the fence about whether or not it’s worth paying an extra $10 dollars to treat yourself to the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Special Edition? According to Capcom, some retailers have already stopped accepting pre-orders for the upcoming fighter, which is scheduled to release on February 15. But of course, the Capcom store has plenty of Special Editions in stock.

The Special Edition will include a free month of access to Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited, a steel book with game art, a selection of fan art, and an exclusive 12-page comic book. Penned by Marvel writer Frank Tieri, the prologue will set the stage for the games-versus-comics mash-up. Also included are DLC characters Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath.
If you pre-order the game from GameStop, you’ll get some MvC3 decals. But pre-order from the Capcom store, and you’ll receive the Shuma Gorath shirt pictured above. Even if you just pre-order the regular version, you’ll still get the shirt for free.
