Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 DLC Costume leaked

Yep, same day as the reveal of the DLC characters DLC costumes (which will be free for people with MvC3 save data, score) someone got a hold of the Strategy guide and posted all or almost all the DLC costumes. And, well, good news and bad news. We'll get to that in a bit. Let's start the show

Wolverine: Weapon X costume, because that hasn't been done to death yet. Oh well, so much for Days of Future Past Logan.

Hulk: Planet Hulk costume, like I predicted. Good.

Deadpool: He is dressed up like Cable, in the loosest sense of the word. Either Capcom is trolling Cable fans or Deadpool has actually worn this outfit in the comics and I've never seen it.

Felicia: Yellow Iris from Battle Circuit. Did not see THAT coming. Apparently this is a Beat 'em up game Capcom made with a cat girl as a playable character. I think I've seen it before, I just don't know why or where.

Trish: Gloria. Again, just as predicted. Fine, though it still sucks that I'm more or less going to be buying something that was already there.

Amaterasu: Jon Talbain. What. That's just so random. I mean I know who he is, I know they wanted to get him in the game, I just never would have predicted this. Also Missle will probably have this as his DLC color, since I only was Phoenix Wright. We'll get to him in a bit.

Dormammu: Classic Outfit. Great, just like I predicted.

Vietiful Joe: Average Joe. Neat, though I'm not sure what he'll throw for his Voomerang. Maybe his hat? Also another one I predicted.

Tron Bonne: Servbot Head Gustaff. I probably should have seen this coming, but I'm still shocked.

Spider-Man: Scarlet Spider. I know people asked for him, but I just wanted to make a team of former MvC sprites with Cyber-Akuma and Shadow Lady and to get all the Spider-Armors in a single game. Oh well.

Magneto: His House of M outfit. So glad I predicted this last time. It's also apparently inspired by a Spanish King, namely Juan Carlos I. He apparently sued Marvel over them using his image in their comic. Still an awesome costume, hopefully Capcom doesn't face any legal trouble over this.

Nathan "Rad" Spencer: Finally I can use this character without feeling like a tool. He now has his ReArmed look. Again, I predicted this from the very start, all the way before DLC costumes were even a thing

Sir Arthur: Zombie Arthur in his underwear? And he turns into a skeleton when he usually loses his armor. Huh. So much for a Maximo revival.

She Hulk: I've heard this called Lawyer She Hulk and Judge She Hulk. Looks more like a Lawyer to me, and it is again something I predicted. So sad for Savage She Hulk though.

Zero: Okay, remember when I was worried that Capcom was trolling with Deadpool dressed as Cable? Well I really don't know what else to call this: Megaman X as Zero's DLC costume. I am certain this has pissed off a lot of people, although the reactions I've seen so far have actually been much better than expected. I honestly did hope that X would be a fully independent and playable character as DLC. I really don't want to hate Capcom for this, since I think a lot of people have been hating on them recently, but I'm still upset. Well, at least there's still a chance Classic will return.

Shuma-Gorath: Quoggoth. You know, Suma-Gorath's apprentice. The one that appeared in Wolverine: First Class issue #12. The one that doesn't even have a page, even though some warthog named Quog does. Yeah, that's the guy you can play as now. Interesting Side note, Quog actually predates most Marvel characters, having appeared in Marvel Comics Volume 1 issue 1. Yeah, this warthog is older than Captain America. Namor and the Original Human Torch just barely beat by the sheer fact that their stories came first in the issue.

Jill Valentine: Resident Evil 3 costume. Damn. Well that was the game that introduced Nemsis, so they felt it was fitting. Plus it shows enough skin that they can easily put the mind control device on her.

Phoenix: The Jim Lee Jean Grey design. I'm just gonna guess that she still uses the same Dark Phoenix costume, though if they decided to put her in the Black Queen outfit, you won't here me complain.

Mike Haggar: Final Fight 3 costume. Sort of predicted this, and I honestly like this costume the least. I would have preferred any other costume but this.

Taskmaster: UDON costume with hard light shield. I'm a freaking psychic here.

Hsien Ko: Her Sister, as a human. I called the human part, but I actually did think about dressing her up as her sister and might have posted it somewhere.

Ghost Rider: 2099. Awesome. At least it looks like Ghost Rider 2099. He's got metal arms, so that's good enough for me.

Hawkeye: Ronin. Another one I thought off but never put down online.

Firebrand: Red Arremer King. I think I predicted this back when Firebrand was revealed and jsut never posted it.

Doctor Strange: His Blue look from Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Apparently this is Necromancer, Stephen Strange from Counter Earth, which is somehow still in Universe 616. I'm gonna say I called it, but I threw a blanket statement out when I made that prediction.

Nemesis: Him with his shirt off. Gross. Apparently it's supposed to be him during his second mutation or something.

Iron Fist: Ultimate Iron Fist. God DAMMIT! He looks douchey to me. Would have preferred his modern look.

Vergil: Corrupt Vergil (?) Yeah, no idea what that means. Looks a lot like Dante's Sparda costume, but with pointy hair. Maybe my friend knows what it means.

Nova: His Original Look, but without the yellow arms. I guess I predicted this?

Phoenix Wright: Young Phoenix. Damn, I was hoping for Hobo Phoenix, or at least Furio Tigre. Oh well. Wonder what Maya will wear?

Rocket Raccoon: His Grey Furred Green Outfit from his mini-series. Hooray! He isn't wearing pants!

Frank West: His Mega Man costume. Yeah, Capcom is fucking with us.

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Alternate Costume Final Follow Up (For Now)

So today brought us the final two color palettes for Rocket Raccoon and Frank West. How do they look? They're alright.

Rocket Raccoon: He has a couple of blue costumes, which are decent, one based on his time working in an office, one from his first appearance in The Incredible Hulk, though not his cover appearance and a camouflage outfit from an upcoming comic. I'm upset he didn't get a green outfit with Grey fur like he did in his own miniseries, so I guess that now has a chance to be DLC. So it's now between that and him with a bubble helmet that he sometimes wears. I'm honestly torn between the two.

Frank West: Frank, like Phoenix Wright, has assistants, namely the zombies, that also receive a color change. First is a wine colored Jacket, which just reminds me that he had a wine colored outfit as DLC from the first Dead Rising. At least I think he did. Anyway, this was the one people thought was from TvC. Next is a White suit with a red shirt that was in Tatsunoko vs Capcom. Also, it makes him look like Tony Montana. Next up is a brown suit that looks kind of like leather, but it's supposed to be like The Godfather, mafia and the like. I personally think it looks ugly. And now we get an actual reference to another Capcom character, Chuck Greene, which probably pisses off Chuck Greene fans, but screw them, we already have Frank West. Finally is Frank with a Dalmatian or Snow Leopard print Jacket, a pink shirt and white pants, to make him look silly. It's not Frank in drag, but it'll do. Not a lot of references to any of Frank's other potential costumes, especially since he got some new costumes as DLC in the new Dead Rising game. So the choices for DLC for him are pretty limitless.

UMvC3 Alternate Costumes Follow Up

Well it's nine days until release and three days until the final 2 costume sets are revealed, so I think it would be a good idea to take a look back at my last post and see what I got right and what I got woefully wrong. Also, I might add suggestions for DLC costumes

Wolverine: Both of Wolverines new costumes had been revealed when I wrote that last article, so I'm just gonig to add that they should make his Days of Future Past costume his DLC costume to go with the stage and one of Sentinels new colors. More on that in a bit.

Ryu: Predicted both of his new costumes, so off to a good start.

Morrigan: Turns out what we thought has a Lilith costume in MvC3 was just an original color. Now we have a real Lilith color. Also I was right that she'd have another one of her old Alternate Colors.

Hulk: See Wolverine. As for DLC, I'll stick with what I suggested last time, though I'm sure he has plenty of other great costumes, like Mr. Fix-It. Also, did not expect Captain Universe.

Chirs Redfield: A costume based off something he wore in a trailer I never watched and Chuck Greene. I told you I was unfamiliar with Resident Evil. Also, I have trouble believing that those other two costumes are supposed to be Cody and his Safari costume.

Deadpool: Okay, I wrote this before it was revealed that certain costumes would be removed after two of their costumes were revealed(see Hulk and his Captain Universe color replacing his MvC2 color) so for a while, I thought Deadpool was going to get his Orange Frightful Four costume to go with Taskmaster. But he was one of the few who this DIDN'T happen with. So I doubt it will be his DLC costume, but damn would that not be crazy if it was. As for a new suggestion? Something that shows his skin? Dead Man Wade from AoA, maybe his Marvel Girl Costume. Oh, and his new costumes are cool.

Dante: Didn't mention him last time, probably because his costumes had already been revealed. But seriously, Orange Frightful Four costume? The Hell? It's like they're mocking me. You'll see in a moment.

Captain America: Again, didn't mention him because I thought I'd seen all his new costumes. I was wrong. They removed not one but two old colors, his MvC2 teal color and my favorite The Red Guardian color. and for what? The Simpsons Yellow faced AEMH space suit, Bucky Cap, Age of X and Classic Cap. Also Punisher Cap has a new shield with no star. I seriously think the Space Suit colors are poorly done.

Felicia: I was right and wrong. One for a past alt and one for Mary Jane and other Marvel Red Heads. Wrong Spider-Man Romantic interest.

Dr. Doom: Hood Color is cool, gonna miss the second 2099 color, the picture for Death Mask looks orange, which pissed me off, but it's red, so I guess it's cool.

Chun Li: Shadow Lady. This is awesome. Oh and a puzzle fighter color to go with numerous new pink colors. Yay.

Super Skrull: The first two skrull uniforms and the Hank Pym Skrull. I'll miss Red Super Skrull, but I'm more upset at the lack of my suggestions appearing. But they fixed Ultimate Super Skrulls chest, so that's cool. Just wish they'd done the same for Generic Skrull #1's gloves.

Trish: Another Orange costume with no reference point other than Dante has one. I have since come up with a color that could have been used instead: Lucia, the female character from DMC2. Oh, and hooray for Dante and Vergil colors for everyone. Also Rainbow Mika color. That's what that was. And another pink costume.

Thor: Did you know that originally Thor was going to have a Red and gold color scheme that was reminiscent of Iron Man? This actually made me think that all three of Marvels Big Three (Cap, Iron Man and Thor) would have colors reminiscent of each others. Instead we got three Space suit colors, one of which is for Hawkeye, and two of which give the characters jaundice. Unfortunately, the character it would look best (Iron Man) on didn't get it. But Thor's version looks fine. All his colors do. Another character to lose two colors though.

Amaterasu: Awesome new colors, not much to say. I think there was a Black version with blue or yellow stripes, but that might have been fan art, so I doubt it'll be DLC.

Dormmamu: Not much to say here. A bit upset that I'm gonna have to pay to get his old color back.

Viewtiful Joe: I'm just gonna say I don't understand why his beards match his costumes. I know he has red hair and his costume is red, but there is no reason he can't have a blonde beard for his Sylvia costume, for example. Silly mistake that they should have fixed this time around.

X-23: Well, they didn't call it an X-Force costume, and the colors aren't right for it to be an X-Force costume, but I'm still gonna say that I called this one. As for the Kirika costume? Never heard of her, I think. Nice costume, I guess.

Tron Bonne: I've got nothing to add here. Still know idea what here DLC costume will be.

Spider-Man: TOO MUCH BLACK! They replaced his stealth suit with another Big Show costume, the sonic disruptor and brought in his new Spider-Armor. I'm surprised he didn't get some other costume. There's one from the same universe as Death Wish and Death Mask called The Amazing Spider, maybe a Fantastic Four costume. Anything but more black.

Albert Wesker: I've got even less to say here.

Magneto: I think his House of M costume might be neat. Maybe his look from X-Men Evolution, where you couldn't see his face. Oh, and it was the New Mutants that he led, not the X-Men, when he didn't wear his helmet.

Nathan "Rad" Spencer: Still waiting on the DLC costume, which has to be his Re-Armed look. Bling and P.N.O.3 costumes. Meh, not gonna get me to play as him.

M.O.D.O.K.: MODOT and a What If comic. Okay. I also found out about Baby MODOK from Nextwave. I hate being wrong, but these costume are good.

Sir Arthur: Two new original colors, one of them pink. I actually found out that there were new Ghost and Goblins games on touch phones with Percival and Lancelot as playable characters. I actually thought their armor would be costumes, but nope. Old Man Arthur and Pink Arthur. Though this does open more options for DLC costumes. Also there's some sort of Cursed Samurai armor from the last GnG game. So yeah, lot's of options, none of which were chosen.

She-Hulk: They split here old Lyra costume into two costumes, a Fantastic Four costume and a solo Lyra. Also Grey She-Hulk. That was a thing and Howard the Duck was there to see it. So that still leaves Savage She-Hulk's first cover appearance a shot.

Zero: Removed Blue X costume for Hyper Armor X. Hints at bringing actual X or just trolling? No one will ever know. Also one of my ideas for a DLC costume has become a color, black suit didn't make it, probably because of the Bass color, and I was right about Vile. I was also going to guess a Double inspired color. No such luck. So this leaves us with DLC, like my original suggestion of his Round Shoulder Pads look, though some people are worried that he might get an X costume as DLC.

Shuma Gorath: I guess I was right. Here's hoping for Shuma with a Bow Tie for DLC. Not like he has many options.

Jill Valentine: So it was Saki, another P.N.O.3 color, or the first I guess, and a camouflage costume to form a team that wasn't complete yet, with another P.N.O.3 color and another Pink which actually looks kind of like something Ivy from Soul Calibur would wear, if it was more revealing.

Storm and Crimson Viper : Nothing to say here. All their costumes were revealed last time, with only Vipers white and blue one causing any head scratching. I'm just saying it's Abel, but the presence of black instead of Blonde hair causes me to question that decision.

Taskmaster and Haggar: Again, just look back at my last post for my DLC suggestions. Also, it turns out that Haggar was going to wear a dress shirt with suspenders in the cancelled Capcom Fighting All-Stars. It was remembered with Capcom Fighting Jam, which brought over an original character from All-Starts, Ingrid. She would later appear in a PSP re-release of Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX. Street Fighter is weird sometimes.

Sentinel: Right about Nimrod, wrong about Bastion. Not sure how they would have implemented that anyway. Glad to see that one Sentinel type that got used in the Tri-Sentinel was chosen though.

Hsien-Ko: Uh, yeah, Mr. Vampire, Puzzle Fighter and an original color. Yep. Though someone says the green one is actually from Darkstalkers 3 or Darkstalkers Chronicle, so what do I know?.

That about does it. Only Frank West and Rocket Raccoon's costumes left to be revealed. Frank lost his Real Mega Buster move, so that could be a DLC costume, he'll wear at least one of his Tatsunoko vs Capcom colors, the purple one, Rocket has a red outfit and a light blue one with grey fur. I did find that some of the colors actually could have real explanations other than the ones given, mostly Nemesis, who has one for Hypnos(blue) and some creature called Ivan(white). Only ones I hadn't seen any yet last time that I have now are
Nova: Mostly good, but the Kid Nova ones are kind of boring. In fact, Quasar look great, in spite of the fact that Nova as a fighter completely bores me.


Phoenix Wright: They paired the wrong Maya's with the wrong Phoenix's. Mia should go with Godot and Kay Faraday with Edgeworth. I haven't even played that one and I know that. Upset over no Furio Tigre with Viola Cadaverini. Speaking of which, can someone help me find a picture of those two dressed up as Phoenix and Maya? I know it's out there, I saw it. The Dick Gumshoe outfit looks a bit like Winston Payne to me, Nice color combination for Larry Buttz, and the Sissel color is just fantastic. And of course Missile looks amazing, even though they didn't have to change him. Now I have to come up with a costume for him for the DLC. Nick can still be Hobo Nick, Mia can wear Trucy Wright's outfit, though they might make Nick wear Apollo's outfit in that case.
