Mega Man Headed to ‘Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3′ in DLC Costume Form

Mega Man Costume DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3

While Mega Man fans the world over are still crying foul over the boy robot’s exclusion from both the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 rosters, Capcom may have provided them a pricey workaround to finally get their wish. Now, before gamers get too excited, this Mega Man appearance in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 isn’t ideal — in fact it actually feels like a cash grab — but it is something.

What exactly UMvC3 (and potentially MvC3?) will be offering is a paid DLC costume pack that allows Zero, one of Mega Man’s partners in crime, to look exactly like Mega Man X. The fighter will still play as Zero, using his particular skill and ability set, but the fighter will look like Mega Man.

It seems like once again Capcom is trying to suck every last dollar from gamer’s pockets, by way of any means necessary. Obviously the publisher/developer is well aware of gamers’ desire to play as Mega Man in Marvel vs. Capcom, but instead of delivering that, they forced not one but two price tags upon them.

In order to gain access to Mega Man — or the Mega Man costume for Zero, rather — fans will not only have to purchase Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but also this costume DLC, which may or not include other alternate costumes. We already thought that Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was a little obvious in its shameless cash grab, but this is pretty disappointing.

Obviously there is plenty of content to warrant picking up this discount title for Marvel vs. Capcom fans, but ultimately there seems to be a half-hearted effort on Capcom’s part to give gamers exactly what they want. Now if this costume DLC was offered free of charge, that might be an entirely different situation, but that seems highly unlikely given Mega Man’s popularity.

There’s currently no word on this costume DLC (pricing, availability, etc.), however Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 releases tomorrow (but you can read our review now), so gamers can expect some news on faux Mega Man in the coming weeks. For now, we’re just going to hold our heads in shame.

What do you think of Capcom releasing not Mega Man, but a Mega Man costume as paid DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3? Has Capcom officially alienated their fans?

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 releases November 15, 2011 for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

    They sure have. At least the Mega Man ones, anyway. Their PR is tanking these days.

  • Just want to play

      Speak for yourself.

  • capcom is a joke

    Yeah Capcom clearly enjoys Mega Man Fan sadness, the amount of effort put into trolling us, they could have put Mega Man X in twice. and I wanted Jill Valentine’s S.T.A.R.S. alternate costume to play as the original RE team but they no longer care about RE 1 fans either. Bottom Line though Mega Man X and Venom should have been playable characters with their own moveset, Capcom need not say it is not possible with that Phoenix Wright Bullshit.Oh and if you are wondering Marvel said no to Venom, Capcom said OK no problem, but when it came to Shuma-Gorath however they harassed Marvel to use him in the game. I am gonna wait for the inevitable Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Arcade Edition.

    I agree with you guys. Them not puttin megaman in as a character BUT as a costume clearly shows how lazy they are. JUST LIKE J. TALBAIN AS A COSTUME FOR AMATERASU!!!!
    Now, megaman as Zero i can KINDA see as he DID use the Z-saber in MEgaman X6. If its HIS voice actor and he has his own intros/outros…il stomach this. But yeah J. Talbain (a kung fu werewolf) as Amaterasu (a god that can use elemental powers and what not)??? The two are TOTALLY different characters!!! It would be like giving Magneto a costume of Bison or something…makes zero sense

  • capcom is a joke nowadays

    not sure why my comment was deleted but i will say it again, Mega Man X and Venom should have been the #1 characters added to Ultimate MvC3. Just so everyone knows Marvel said no to venom and capcom says OK no problem and when Marvel says no to Shuma-Gorath they harass Marvel into giving them the ok. Where was that when we (the fans who keep capcom up and running) wanted Venom. Capcom chooses to make a very basic (but still fun) videogame when there is so much potential in this series, I will just wait for the inevitable Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Arcade plus Mega Man X Edition.

      it’s a shame he isn’t in it character wise,and i think they shouldn’t have even bothered with the entire thing at all.However, i think i’m more pissed at the fact that they lead us on with the poster and, his inclusion in the two endings(nova and thor) and, from what i hear it was inafune who personally asked for zero and, tron to represent the mm franchise.
