Some of the best fan service within Marvel vs. Capcom 3 are the alternate costumes (or more accurately, color schemes). The fact that actual thought went into the alternate color schemes is awesome, especially when they could have been random and meaningless like they have been in MVC games past. Gamespot has an article detailing the alternate color schemes for UMVC newcomers Strider Hiryu and Ghost Rider and it’s pretty sweet.
Quick fact: Strider has color schemes based on Street Fighter‘s ninja Ibuki and Guy. Isn’t that neat? Hit the source for the rest of the colors and their inspirations. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be available on HD consoles in November.
