By Ishaan . February 15, 2011 . 1:35am

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 just saw its release, and in about two weeks, it’ll see its first round of downloadable content in the form of Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath, and a wealth of additional costumes.


The costume pack will set you back by $5 on the PlayStation Network and 400 Microsoft points on Xbox Live, and comes with costumes like Thor in his classic 80s design and a new outfit for Iron Man, Dante, Captain America, Ryu and Chris. You can view screenshots of the new costumes below.


Also available on March 1st alongside the character and costume additions will be Marvel vs. Capcom 3’s “Shadow mode,” which you can read more about here.

  • Loving the classic Captain America and Street Fighter Ryu costumes :D

  • dusk

    Norman Osborn’s Iron Patriot?!


  • Bakuryukun

    I’m hoping that Amaterasu’s alternate costumes are just different breeds of dog.


    • I’m thinking either Shiranui form or Chibiterasu, myself.

    • Code

      rar holy crap, LITTLEST HOBO FTW >w<~!

    • Poison chihuahua? ;)

      • Bakuryukun

        ohmygod yes. That would be….the best thing. Clovertastic!

  • Wiccan1109

    Wow, doesn’t Ryu look precious in those…ruby slippers….kinda think i took the bare feet for granted. Captain A looks awesome, I hate Tony Stark with a fiery passion but now i can pretend he’s Norman :D I’m not seeing a difference with Chris, maybe i havent been paying attention. New haircut? Don’t like Thor or Dante, but the costumes are good. :) Its nice that they’ve done something like this instead of just alternate colours.

  • I am loving that there’s an Iron Patriot DLC.

  • Hexen

    yes! a less steroid Chris.

    • Hours

      The model seems to be the same size, so it’s still beefy Chris, just in his S.T.A.R.S. outfit.

      But that’s fine with me, I like his new buff look. Hopefully we’ll get his Warrior outfit next.

    • Needs less neck!

  • Hmmm…let’s see…what other outfits will they have? I’m guessing S.T.A.R.S. Jill and Wesker, Trish as Gloria, Deadpool w/o Mask, X-23’s “Almost Naked Cavewoman” outfit, Morrigan as Lilith, Felicia’s Nun Outfit, Doom 2099, Arthur as Maximo, leotard Chun Li, World War Hulk, Sentinel as Nimrod, old school Spencer, Wolverine without the mask or with Bone Claws, Jean Grey’s Yellow and Blue outfit, Storm’s full body suit, and either Shiranui form or Chibiterasu for Amaterasu.

    • Code

      Seriously I’d love to see street clothes Wolverine, to me it was always an unlikely prospect getting Wolverine to wear a bright yellow costume opo; rar, I’d have liked to have seen Virgil-Dante over Sparda-Dante. But seriously really looking forward to more costumes, I think there’s so much potential on both sides.

  • ForeverFidelis

    Definitely a first day buy.
    Sure hope they give Taskmaster his Udon costume

  • FlamingSausage

    Isn’t that the Sparda outfit for Dante from DMC3?

  • Code

    rar, awesome I really wasn’t expecting this to have costumes, Capcom just earned an A for effort in my books >w<'

    • Really? R U Serious? Will you give A for effort if these are already on the disc?

      • Code

        That wasn’t my point, lol >w<; But as far as DLC, personally I feel it's case-by-case, to think all DLC is appropriated for on disc or off disc is silly, and depends on files sizes, for example if it's anything like Continuum Shift's 700MB+ patches everyone had to download whether your purchasing the characters or not; I'd entirely support on disc DLC (it beats, being locked out of your HDD space for something you aren’t buying). If it was marginally smaller then yeah sure downloading is fine.

        My point was, I really didn’t expect Capcom to go through the extra effort of making costumes for all these characters. There’s hope for MMZ Zero yet >w<'

  • I’d pay for a Robert Downey Jr Ironman voice pack DLC….

    • Having played the game for a few hours today, the voice actor for Iron Man is doing a very good RDJ impersonation, actually.

  • Chow

    Ah, so that’s why they were so adamant not to have different polygonal models for their “regular” alternate costumes. They wanted to sell them. Hitboxes my ass!

    Also, lol @ SF1 Ryu!

  • gotta love Sparda’s outfit for dante

  • mikanko

    Tron can have a Roll outfit, Zero maybe gets a Protoman outfit or something (Megaman is still one of the most requested dlc chars, so we’ll see) Lei Lei can have a Lin Lin outfit, Felicia in her nun attire, Trish maybe gets Lady’s short shorts. Possibilities are pretty endless for some characters…

    Just don’t know what they could do for Shuma Gorath. <.<

  • That Street Fighter 1 Ryu outfit better come with matching voices.

    • capristrider

      I’m shock to see old school Ryu from Street Fighter 1! I getting a retro kick out of that look of Ryu with Red fair and Plimsoll. That would be funny if he had matching sf1 voice XD

  • Aiddon

    sonuva- you just HAD to put in a Sparda costume; now I HAVE to get it.

  • PrinceHeir

    sparda outfit for Dante is awesome :D

    love the game, played it all night :)

  • I honestly thought that was Wesker, not Dante…

  • ForeverFidelis

    The weird thing is going to be seeing the Iron Patriot talk sounding like Tony Stark instead of Sean Connery, as I’ve always pictured Norman Osborn to sound like when reading

  • These should be on the disc and unlockable by play. FAIL. Capcom to Consumers: “Grab thy ankles!”
