MVC3 DLC costumes price, release date

Plus, Jill and Shuma-Gorath availability.

Alternative costumes for three-on-three fighting game Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be available to download from the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live from 1st March, Capcom has announced.

Ryu wears his Street Fighter 1 costume, Chris Redfield wears his Resident Evil 1 outfit and Dante turns into his devil dad, Sparda. Marvel superheroes Captain America, Thor and Iron Man turn up in new threads, too.

They'll set you back $5 on PSN and 400 Microsoft Points (£3.43) on Xbox Live. Screenshots of the alternative costumes are below.

On the same day Capcom will launch the first Shadow Mode DLC pack. Shadow Mode is a free series of downloadable packs that let you fight against "custom-built computer opponents, modelled after famous players and specific themed teams".

The game's producer, Ryota Niitsuma, will be first up, in addition to Shadow Mode teams for assistant producer Akihito Kadowaki and a QA team leader. More will then follow, including "some personalities you already know".

Downloadable characters Jill Valentine and Shuma-Gorath will be made available as DLC "at a later date", Capcom said.

Simon Parkin reviewed MVC3 for Eurogamer, turning up an 8/10.
