Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is out tomorrow (couldn’t you tell when you read our review?) and while it’s just an update of a less-than-a-year-old game, how many games will you play this fall that star a talking, mercenary raccoon? As part of one last push from Capcom before the game is out, we have the fancy cinematic launch trailer. While it might be lacking when it comes to character movement, we really like the dramatic tableaus the many fighters take in the video.

We also found out about some last minute preorder bonuses from You get four exclusive alternate costumes for Doom, Sentinel, Strider and Akuma. Take a look:

Out of the four our favorites are a tie between Cyber-Akuma and Strider. We love that Capcom is at least recognizing that the company actually remembers it has a classic action series like Strider just collecting dust, and we actually prefer his classic look to his current one. Meanwhile Cyber-Akuma reminds us of the street fighter’s long history with Capcom/Marvel crossovers, donning the look he had during Marvel Super Heroes vs Capcom.

Should you choose not to get the game from Amazon, Capcom currently isn’t mentioning if these will be available any other way, but knowing Capcom’s love for selling DLC fighter skins, we wouldn’t be shocked to see these for sale in three months tops.

    I love how it's my man Nova - he was my teammate in New Warriors - up against Capcom mascot Ryu. Powerhouses FTW!

    I'm not going to lie, this game excited me, but the business dealings here stink like rotten eggs. I'm very disappointed in their decision to create a whole new game. I'd buy this for DLC in a heart beat, but as it stands, I'll buy this copy used, and Capcom will see none of my hard-earned dollar.

    I cant wait for this game, and I cant wait for the Special Alt costumes for the other characters, Especially Elvis MODOK,Civilian Joe and Pheeny.
