In two weeks' time, no amount of Marvel cologne
is going to be able to mask the odor of Marvel vs. Capcom 3's
fighters, whose suits will have been drenched and dried in super juices many times over. It's perhaps welcome news
, then, that six of the game's heroes will be due for a costume change on Tuesday, March 1, when the first
of the (sure to be many) alternate costume packs will be released on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.
The first pack will provide Team Marvel's Thor, Captain American and Iron Man
and Team Capcom's Dante, Ryu and Chris Redfield
with fresh garments for $5 total. Additionally, Capcom has confirmed that the first Shadow Mode DLC
pack will also be available on March 1 -- a good way to break in
the new duds.
The Jill Valentine and Shuma-Gorath character pack will follow on March 15 for an undisclosed price, according to a leaflet in the Special Edition
of the game (which includes a code to download the pair now). Capcom has yet to announce any DLC beyond these three releases over the next four weeks.
