Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 costume details, may be single player surprises in store A few new details about Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 were talked about today at a Comic-Con panel. This mostly deals with the extra pre-order costumes, and other minor information as well. Nothing amazing here, but if you want to check out everything you can, read on.
• Costumes available are going from four outfits to six, at least for now.

• Plans for DLC costumes are still being finalized. There will likely be more ways to pick up the outfits than just pre-ordering at certain stores.

• Capcom is still thinking of ways to get other cool costumes for the characters in the game.

• Someone was quoted as saying: "We're still working on this game so we haven't hit a point where we're even thinking about DLC yet. We put a lot of work into making those additional outfits, it's a whole new model design."

• Capcom has added more endings for all of the new characters. There are more expanded elements in the story because of that. More give and take between the characters. There may be some single player surprises as well.

• In the "Keeping It Classic" collection, Ghost Rider gets his 90's costume, Hawkeye gets his original look, Hulk has modified pants, She-Hulk gets her Fantastic Four costume, plus an alternate Dormammu and original Captain America.
Kotaku also added this bit about the additional costumes in UMvC3.

There will be more alternate costumes for each character, Niitsuma said, representing the designers' desire to deliver more than a color swap, said Marvel's Chris Baker. Phoenix was used as an example, showing a wardrobe of six costumes, showing the base white/yellow and blue/gold combinations found in the standard Marvel vs. Capcom 3, adding suits found in her appearances in New X-Men, X-Factor from the 1980s, and Age of Apocalypse (in which her hair is not short, but she still features the Phoenix symbol over her eye.)

Further, "evil versions" of characters, inspired by the 1990s Super Nintendo game War of the Gems will make their way into Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Evil Hawkeye, Iron Man and Wolverine were shown.
