Just like any relationship, the one between player and game can grow stale after a while. Eventually the fire dies down, even with a title as good looking and engaging as Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and a little extra something may be required to bring back that spark. As it turns out, the key to reigniting that passion is, just like any relationship, costumes.

Separated into (loosely) themed packs of 4 to 5 characters, UMvC3's Costume DLC will be gradually released between November 22 and February 21 at $4.00 (320 MSP) a pop. A "Value Pack" containing all 48 outfits will drop on March 6 at $20.00 (1,600 MSP) for the extremely patient fighters out there; everyone else should peep the gallery below, and hop past the break for a complete character/pack configuration breakdown.
