Shuma Gorath DLC alt Costume Confirmed


DLC costumes for Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 have already been announced, and in some cases the costumes have been shown to the general public. However we had not yet received confirmation that the two DLC character's we got when Marvel Vs Capcom 3 (Jill and Shuma) was first released will be receiving alt costumes in Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3.

Today I confirmed with Chris Baker via twitter that we would be getting one for Shuma-Gorath at the very least.

Shuma was created by Robert E. Howard (creator of Conan: The Barbarian) who's origional premier was unprinted until after it's creator's death. Then started appearing in Dr. Strange comic's during the mid-70's, where he was purple.

Shuma is a pretty obscure character without very many noteable appeareances in the Marvel  universe, until his appearance in the early 90's in a Capcom Fighter starring Marvel Super Hero's...

Since this appearance he's been a staple of the Marvel Vs Capcom series.

When it came time for Capcom to begin work on Marvel Vs Capcom 3, Marvel comics gave Capcom's request too include Shuma a big no; but he was approved as a DLC character, leading Capcom too release the game with both Shuma-Gorath and Jill Valentine as DLC characters. 
So we'll be getting DLC costumes for our green friend, and hopefully this also goes for Jill who could really use a S.T.A.R.S. Alternative costume.
