Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Costume Packs Pile on the Fan Service

There have definitely been some controversial releases of DLC for Capcom’s fighting games from pre-recorded matches to entire new games, but few have complained about the optional costume packs for games like Super Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs Capcom 3.  Except for Marvel, where only a few costumes were ever released.  Well, Capcom’s followed that up by revealing the full set of the first batch of new costumes for every fighter in the recent Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.  Word already got out about Mega Man costumes for Zero and Frank West, but the fan service doesn’t stop there– with references to other Darkstalkers characters, alternate Marvel universes, other forms of well known characters, and of course a proper Rad Spencer skin to play as the original Bionic Commando as seen in Rearmed.  About freakin time!  I refused to play as that dreadlocked douche, so this definitely makes me excited.  Each pack will cost $4.00 or 320 Microsoft Bison Dollars Points.  You can also buy them all at once for $20.00/1,600 MSP.  You can see the all the new costumes below.

The Ancient Warriors Pack – Hulk, Magneto, Arthur, Firebrand
