Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite sees the release of its latest wave of new content. Today, we get new characters and costumes for 12 of the fighters from the launch roster.

Venom, Black Widow, and Winter Soldier officially join the playable cast today. These three characters round out the first wave of six DLC combatants to join the battle, with the first three being Sigma, Black Panther, and Monster Hunter.

Despite being slated for release today, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite's version 1.05 update went live yesterday on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This patch implemented numerous balance changes and bug fixes, and actually made available the new characters and costumes for Xbox One users.

The characters are now officially available on PlayStation 4, and each one will run you $7.99 individually. Purchasing each character will also net you their premium costume.

If you'd like to get all six of the DLC fighters in one fell swoop, you can purchase the 2017 Character Pass for $29.99. Doing so also gets you their premium costumes.
