Not How It Looks Theater presents: Mega Man X (isn't) in UMvC3

Hold all of your horses, padre, and don't get too excited just yet. See that picture up there? That sparkling, dynamically lit and exceedingly impressive Mega Man, torn from the pages of the upcoming Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 guide and punctuated by an emboldened "DLC" classification? So do we, and it's a lie.

The blue bomber's Mega Man X variant won't be joining his sword-wielding comrade in battle, but rather will be providing said comrade with a fancy new outfit. That's right, that's costume DLC for Zero, and that sound you hear is the noise made by a hundred thousand simultaneously shattered hopes and dreams.

No word yet on availability or pricing, or whether this means more deceptive DLC costumes await the game's fighters down the line. Now, if you'll excuse us, we have to clean up the remnants of our rage-torn office.
