Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is getting a bunch of new costumes later today—prepare your wallet
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will be getting 18 new costumes later today for a bunch of the game's characters.
Iron Man, Hawkeye, Arthur, Dante, Thor, Spencer, Hulk, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Chris Redfield, Chun-Li, Ryu, Nemesis, Dormammu, Ghost Rider, Doctor Strange, Morrigan, and Firebrand will receive the new costumes. The remaining fighters are expected to receive new costumes of their own in future updates.
The costumes themselves include some fan favorites with a Superior Iron Man costume, new-look Dante from the rebooted DMC series, and the iconic Wanderer costume for Ryu all on offer for a price of $3.99 each. Other fighting games like Tekken 7 offer more costumes and additional game modes for less than the cost of the complete MVCI costume set, making this a pricy addition.
The costumes themselves are purely a cosmetic skin for the characters, leaving the characters' abilities unchanged both in effect and visually.
Capcom is no stranger to costume DLC, having made a bunch in the past for their other titles. Street Fighter V recently received a Halloween-themed update that included new costumes, stages, and music packs and were sold at the exact same price as Infinite's costumes.
Players can also but all 18 costumes together for $29.99, or in packs of six costumes for $11.99.
