Is Capcom out to agitate their fans to no end with Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3? With the release of their alternate costume packs on the expanded edition of Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, we can't help but wonder. Nevertheless, The Daily Zombies gives a rundown on the awesome but questionably new outfits.

Earlier last month, we gave our take on the million-dollar question for the then-upcoming release of Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, the inevitable "bigger, badder" expanded edition of Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, originally released in March: "If you already owned Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, is it still necessary for you get Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 for a discount retail price?"

While the answer we eventually gathered somewhat concluded that being true Marvel Zombies and fans of Capcom's fighting games, we probably really should, the recent release of new DLC alternate costume packs has once again brought Capcom's money-grabbing antics to our attention.

Released to generally positive reviews earlier this month, ten DLC packs, each consisting four characters and set to be released on a weekly basis, were announced by Capcom. Interestingly, all 48 costumes (I noticed the glaring error with the figures too) from these packs, respectively, "The Costume Pack," "The Rising Dead," "The Evil Twin," "The Ancient Warrior," "The Brawler," "The Femme Fatale," "The New Age of Heroes," "The Animal Pack," "The Weapon Expert" and "The Viewtiful Strange", will all be assembled in one value pack scheduled to be released on March 6th come next year, for $20.00 on PSN or 1,600 points on Xbox Live.

For those who have been following our coverage on the alternate costumes available in Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 (here, and here), you would have to agree that these alternate costumes are mostly consisted of palette swaps with almost zero changes made to the actual outfit. So as it turned out, actual overhaul of the appearances of your favorite fighters is going to cost you.

We will be the first to tell you that these alternate costumes are indeed awesome, especially after browsing through the inconsequential costumes that are free-of-charge in the game. But that very same fact is also indicative of Capcom's unwillingness to reward fans of the title who actually brought the expanded edition of a game they bought several months ago with actually cool bonus items.

Just picture this: We shelled out more than fifty bucks for Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds back in March. Paid an additional ten bucks for a couple of intentionally left out characters, and a few more bucks for modes and costumes. Bought Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 at forty bucks thinking that we finally nailed the ultimate edition with every freaking items. Guess what? Apart from having to pay for the same couple of intentionally left out characters, we have to pay another twenty bucks (and that deal will only come along in March next year) to grab some truly awesome costumes that was intentionally left out in the supposedly "Ultimate" edition. What the fuck is wrong with Capcom?

As we have mentioned earlier, as screwed-up as the deal is, the alternate costumes are impressive. So, for those who still gives a shit until this point, hit the jump to check out images of these new costumes, courtesy of and Gamespot and Capcom Unity.
