Capcom posted on their blog the new battle mode called "Shadow Battle" which allows you to download packs that pit you against teams and characters modeled after specific teams and well known names in the fighting arena.
The first pack will include the game's producer, Ryota Niitsuma and teams for the assistant producer and QA team leader. Each of the teams will be specifically coded for that person's techniques and preferences and Capcom promises that there will be more of these down the road. Just think, you could download packs from some of the top EVO fighters and practice for hours honing your fighting skills against these shadow fighters.
This may be the first game I get this year and the only one for a while so I plan on spending tons of hours getting my ass handed to me in this game trying to get better. This is immensely exciting to anyone that is a fan of this game series.
