Rising Dead Pack DLC costumes for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 released, explained

The first DLC costume pack for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was released today.

Capcom-Unity has a new blog up today explaining the reasoning behind which costumes were selected for Frank West, Nemesis, Phoenix and Ghost Rider in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Frank West

Of all the wacky costumes Frank West has donned over the years, this "cosplayer" take on Mega Man still stands as a fan (and office) favorite. The team wanted to create something that already existed inside the Dead Rising canon, and this fit the bill perfectly. One other consideration was to make this alt Frank (or even Chuck Greene) in his underpants.

You can find a full set of images and listing of days when the new DLC packs will become available here.
