MUA2: Psylocke's Alternate Costume & Dossier

"Picking Psylocke’s alternate costume was tough because there were a lot of good choices. Some questions I was often asking myself were, “Does it look fun?” and “Does it stand out in a crowd?” Ultimately most people on the project were drawn to her House of M costume. It had a kind of formal appeal to it but without the constraints of a standard dress. Plus I knew that we could really get the dragon motif to pop and shine."

well..now we know...i have to be honest...i thought this one wouldnt be the choosen...
i like it..but i like to see that the power of psylocke is the only pink "thing" in her, because it stands out...and the dragon, isnt it too japanese?she is britich on the inside...i like the fierce outfits that psylocke use but lets dont make it too oriental...
i dont know...
i like it, but i think it should have a fusion into british and japanese..

It seriously looks like one of the best alternate costumes in the game. It looks like they actually put effort into this. Poor Jean, just got an generic student costume. :(

It looks excellent! But I still prefer the standard outfit; I loved how they revamped the classic ninja blue thongkini and made it look refreshing and classic at the same time.

Do you guys know when the DLC package with Psylocke is scheduled to be released?

A wise choice for an alternate costume, and I like the dossier and all of the detail placed into it. This is even stronger evidence of a determined effort to develop Betsy's presence within the Marvel Universe. Notice the British Betsy image underneath the picture of Captain Britain. I see it as paying homage to those Psylocke fans who loved British Betsy; they should be appreciate of that.
Psylocke has indeed been "ill used in the past."

@FSaker - Hi, I assume that the DLC release is probably imminent.

I know that I have said this already, but these 3-D renders of Betsy are among the best created; they rival some of the 2-D drawings produced in recent years. What I like about the renders is that they accentuate Betsy's beauty and gracefulness as a mutant ninja telephath, but not in an exaggerated or obnoxious manner.

Wow. I might be in the minority but I did like the HOM uniform. It looks even better when rendered in full digital. I now have a reason to keep MUA2 even though I've cleared the harder modes.

Psychilde said...

@Psychilde - Thanks!

@Psychilde - From reading the article on Marvel's blog, did you get the feeling that the author was a Psylocke fan? I agree with most of the choices. I thought having Psylocke in Wolverine NES was a great idea. I remember how hard it was to obtain a copy back then. Psylocke appeared in Marvel Super Heroes as a playable character which was another Marvel/Capcom collaboration back in the 90s.

Man, i LOVE this outfit. It's amazing! <3

I'm definately buying this DLC. And this is totally going to be better than XML1. She already has MUCH more detail.

The only thing that bothers me is how PALE she is in some of her renders, like that 3D one in the bottom. But its really good otherwise.
