We're only about a week out from the launch of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite so, to make sure fans are good and ready to pick up a copy, Capcom has released a trailer showing off all four of the game's pre-order bonus costumes, two of which are related to the next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
As you can see in the above video, a quartet of characters is getting pre-order skins for Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite. The tricky part here is that you'll need to pre-order the appropriate version of the game if you want to nab them all. Yes, that's pretty lame, but here are the details for those who feel so inclined.
If you pre-order either the standard or deluxe version of MvCI, you'll get your hands on the Warrior Thor and Evil Ryu premium costumes. The Warrior Thor outfit is an obvious shout out to the upcoming film, Thor: Ragnarok, while longtime fans of Street Fighter will instantly recognize the evil version of series staple, Ryu. Our understanding is that the alternate outfits might cause some of the characters to have alternate animations in the middle of battle, so that's a nice little twist. Don't worry, though, as it's all cosmetic. A move may look different, but it's functionally identical to the standard version.
Finally, there's the Command Mission X outfit for Mega Man and the Gladiator Hulk outfit that, again, is pulled from the upcoming Thor film. If you want those two outfits, then you'll need to plop down $89.99 for the Deluxe Edition of this latest Marvel vs. Capcom game. It also contains a steelbook case and a 2017 Character Pass that will unlock six additional DLC fighters and their premium costumes.
If you've got especially deep pockets, though, then you'll want to pick up the Collector's Edition for $199.99. That'll net you all of the goodies from the Deluxe edition, as well as a collection of four statues boasting the likeness of Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Chun-Li and X. You'll also get a special box to store all of that stuff, as well as a case containing the six Infinity Stones that light up. Whether or not any of that is worth the money is entirely up to you.
As noted above, we're not too far out from this latest Marvel vs. Capcom game actually launching. It'll arrive for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam on Sept. 19. If you're still on the fence, there's a demo available on each of those platforms.
