UPDATED: Phoenix Wright’s Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Costumes Now with DLC


Man I am so psyched to play as the most badass lawyer of them all in UMvC3. If only there was another layer of reference to his home series I could get uber-nerdy about. Oh wait, they announced his alternative outfits!


Here’s his Primary outfit. Nothing too exciting, it’s him and Maya in their everyday duds. Not terribly exciting, it was pretty much a given but…


Here Phoenix and Maya take on the colours of Miles Edgeworth, Phoenix’s prosecutor rival and Mia Fey, Maya’s older sister and Phoenix’s mentor, respectively. That’s cool, honouring two such important characters in that way. It’s cool, if a little predictable. It’d be fun if there was something quirky next.


Alright! Phoenix is now dressed up in duds designed to emulate the lovably incompetent Detective Dick Gumshoe and Maya’s dyed her hair blue to better look like Edgeworth’s adoptive sister Franziska von Karma. Y’know, I was hoping Ms. von Karma would show up in the flesh. Then again, maybe i just have a weakness for whip-wielding 19 year old German girls.


OK. I did not expect this. Phoenix is dressed up like his slacker, womanising friend Larry Butz while Maya is wearing something reminiscent of the Tres Bien restaurant uniform both she and perpetually unlucky Maggey Byrde wore. It’s weird, but heck, it embraces the strangeness that’s been integral to Wright’s design.


OK, glad as I am that these two are represented with these outfits, they’re a bit of an odd pairing. Phoenix is wearing the colours of the mysterious, coffee guzzling Godot from game three and Maya’s dressed as what is basically a copy of her (but a good one, so all’s forgiven) from game five, Kay Faraday. Whatever, the costumes don’t have to make sense. Ooh, wouldn’t it be great if Phoenix could get a special coffee mug evidence piece while dressed as Godot? Or throw a cup instead of documents? C’mon Capcom, you know you want to.

You know, fun as these costumes are I’ve yet to see one that’s really excited-WHAT THE HOLY HELL IS THIS THEY HAVE GHOST TRICK COSTUMES!? SWEET JESUS I LOVE THAT GAME THIS IS AWESOME THIS IS AWESOME THISISAWESOME!


*ahem* Yes. These are costumes based on the appearances of Sissel and Detective Lynne from the game Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective from the studio that gave us Ace Attorney. It’s just a shame that Missile (that little doggy that helps out Phoenix in this game) doesn’t look like Missile from Ghost Trick.


Wright’s DLC costume is his young Phoenix outfit that he wore in college, as seen in Trials and Tribulations Case 1. Maya on the other hand, is dressed up like Iris from the same game. Which, if you’ve played the game, makes absolute perfect sense. And if you haven’t, well…go buy it.

Oh, if only there was different OBJECTION! music tracks that played for each different costume. There are a few more I’d like though, like an Apollo Justice and Trucy Wright set, or a Steel Samurai and Pink Princess combo. In fact, can we just have an Ace Attorney beat ’em up? Or how about Ace Attorney Investigations 2 and Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney?

Thought I’d let that go? Not a chance.

I’m really looking forward to playing as Wright. His design, both visually and in terms of gameplay looks to be a fair distance from perfect, but it does a great job of capturing the spirit of the character and his home series.
