Back in March, as an apology to customers who saw delays on their Capcom store preorders of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, the company promised everyone would be getting free copies of the official strategy guide. While it's been a while, due to stock issues and reprints, Capcom sent out codes out to eligible customers on Friday, along with the following statement.
Please accept our apology for the delayed delivery of your game. In an effort to make it up to you and win back your support for the Capcom Store, we're offering you a free copy of the highly-rated Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate Of Two Worlds Strategy Guide from BradyGames. At 400 full-color pages, this incredible book is nearly as much of an art book as it is a strategy guide. We are also offering you FREE SHIPPING for the strategy guide!
The guide has a value of $30, so all in all, not a bad way to say sorry. If you ordered the game through the Capcom online store you may want to check your email for a code, or contact someone at the store if you haven't gotten one yet. You have until May 15th to redeem the code, so don't let it sit around in your inbox for too long.
