Capcom has revealed a new DLC outfit today for Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, and it’s quite superior. The Superior Spider-Man outfit has our hero Spidey looking a bit more like a spider, which undoubtedly helps his superiority complex. However, if you want to get your hands on this outfit, you won’t be able to buy it outright right away.
Shoryuken reports that to get the Superior Spider-Man outfit as soon as possible, you will have to buy the film Spider-Man Homecoming digitally from either the PlayStation Store or the Xbox Live Marketplace. Capcom did mention that the outfit will be available for standalone purchase at $3.99 eventually, but no exact date was mentioned.
Capcom also put out a video for the new DLC:
Those who haven’t kept up with Infinite‘s development might be shocked by how different it is compared to its predecessor Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The frantic three-on-three combat has been replaced with two-on-two battles (although the action is still very much fast-paced), and the core combat has been altered to incorporate punch and kick buttons. These are significant changes (even though the high flying action and tag combinations are retained), and they definitely threw me for a loop when I first went hands-on with the game earlier this year. As soon as the player comes to grips with this not being MvC3, the sooner they’ll begin having fun.
Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Spider-Man Homecoming is also available now at the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace.
