Ha! NEVER!

Today is the day that Capcom’s Marvel vs. Capcom 3 releases to stores and you can see for yourself just how good the game is... don’t just take my word for it. Capcom has released a launch trailer for the game (shown below, actually the fourth intro movie for the game) and detailed the first downloadable content that will be hitting both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in just a few weeks.

The first DLC for the game will come in the form of the first pack of alternate costumes for the game. The costume pack will cost 400 Microsoft points / $4.99 and contain new threads for Dante, Captain America, Chris Redfield, Iron Man, and Ryu. The previously announced Shadow Mode DLC pack will also be released on that day. Those waiting for the addition of Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath will have to wait a little bit longer as the duo is currently planned for release on March 15 (according to the voucher in the special edition of the game).

You can see all of the new costumes in the assortment of pictures below courtesy of Capcom. Ryu will be receiving his original, Street Fighter (1) look. Dante will be receiving a haircut and a look reminiscent of his father, Sparda. Chris is taking things back to his roots as well with an original, RE1 STARS uniform. Captain America will be dawning his original suit, including the classic version of his shield. Finally, Iron Man will sport his red, white, and blue suit that was worn as a tribute to Captain America following his death in the Marvel universe. Color me sold...
