How to Unlock Costumes in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3

The majority of the alternate costumes in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 are unlocked through Infinity Trials. These Trials can be played either from the main menu, at Shield Points, or via various rifts hidden around levels. They task players with completing certain objectives with set parameters. Each type of Infinity trial offers three Costumes as rewards, each obtained by earning a certain number of stars. You can also unlock certain Costumes, like Daredevil’s black outfit for example, by completing certain missions on Superior difficulty. Finally, certain Costumes are reserved for DLC, with Chef Deadpool currently available for those buying the Expansion Pass. Future DLC will likely add more Costumes, so watch this space for updates.

Every Playable Character is Getting an Alternate Costume

Nintendo recently shared a bit of news at San Diego Comic-Con. It revealed that every playable character would be getting an alternate costume in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 by the end of Q1 2020. This is likely to be added alongside the planned DLC, so we’ll be sure to update this page when we hear more.
