The upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is now just 11 days away. To continue the hype train towards launch, the official Marvel vs. Capcom YouTube channel has released a new gameplay trailer showing off the previously-announced four alternate costumes for Ryu, X, Hulk, and Thor, available via pre-order. The Warrior Thor and Evil Ryu premium costumes will come with pre-orders of both the standard and deluxe editions of the game, while Command Mission X and Gladiator Hulk are exclusive to the title’s $89.99 Deluxe Edition, which also contains a steelbox case, and the 2017 Character Pass (which will add 6 new fighters along with their premium costumes to the game throughout the year, with the first two being Capcom’s Sigma and Marvel’s Black Panther).

If you want the ultimate Vs. Series experience, you can also grab the Collector’s Edition for $199.99, which includes everything found in the Deluxe Edition, as well as four statues of Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Chun-Li, and X (that can be combined together to form a diorama scene), as well as a special collector’s box and a case containing a collection of LED replicas of all 6 of the title’s titular Infinity Stones.

During the battle between Warrior Thor and Evil Ryu against Command Mission X and Gladiator Hulk in New Metro City – Crossroads, we can see Ryu’s alternate animation for his Level 3 Shin Shoryuken Hyper Combo on the Evil Ryu Costume. If the World Warrior is the only character left on your team and he’s low on health when performing the Level 3, a special animation will trigger, where he will briefly succumb to the power of the Satsui no Hado, before quickly overcoming it with the Mu no Ken and completing the attack. When used while wearing the premium costume, he will still be enveloped in the blue aura, but will maintain all of his Evil Ryu characteristics, including the Power of Nothingness mixing with the Satsui no Hado, as he is enveloped in both powers as he finishes the Hyper. You can see the full trailer below.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will be released in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam PC on September 19th, with a Japanese release following on those same platforms on the 21st.
