Today September 8th, only eleven days away from Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite’s full retail release, the community was given a preview into some of the alternate costumes that this release contains. However, like most games this generation, there’s a catch to obtaining these alternate costumes. The standard edition, which retails on consoles for $59.99 USD, includes Warrior Thor and Evil Ryu as pre-order exclusive alternate costumes. However, it is unknown if this is time based or will be available for later, likely that they will be available later. The Deluxe edition contains all four, Gladiator/Planet Hulk and Command Mission Mega Man X and the prior two, along with the season pass which include characters like the Black Panther and Sigama from Mega Man X.

Additionally, via a cover released after the Story Mode Trailer #2 during E3 2017, Sony revealed that Playstation owners would have access to a Free Carol Danvers, Captain Marvel, skin which shows her out of her traditional super hero uniform and one of her in her military outfit.
However, I’d be lying if I didn’t hope for a Ms.Marvel outfit, as this was by far my favorite for the character.
It’s interesting to speculate and wonder about other alternate costume choices. Will other costumes be available in-game day one? Potentially, I’m expecting a Mega Man Zero alternate costume for Zero as I wrote in a previous article. In fact, it would seem that one of the variant covers gives the idea away on its cover, showing Mega Man Zero facing off against other Marvel characters in the Mighty Thor Variant, see below.
