So what makes the comparatively extravagant Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Collectors Edition so desirable? For starters, the set comes with plenty of digital and physical bonuses. Downloadable extras consist of the Character Pass, which grants access to six playable characters including Black Panther and Sigma along with four more that will be available after the games release. Each of the six characters will come with a premium costume as well. Buyers that pre-ordered the game also received Evil Ryu, Warrior Thor, Mega Man Command X and Gladiator Hulk costumes as well.
While the digital items that come with the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Collectors Edition help to justify the premium sets significantly higher price tag (relative to the standard disc and download), the physical items are the clear centerpiece. In addition to a special Steelbook metal disc case, diorama statues of Iron Man, Chun-Li, Captain Marvel, and Mega Man are also included. Manufactured by renowned collectible manufacturer Tri-Force, each of the 1/10th scale figures is beautifully sculpted and painted and comes permanently affixed to a base that is designed to resemble a segment of Asgards Bifrost Highway.
The Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Collectors Edition also comes with a display case that contains pulsating LED-illuminated replicas of the (Space, Mind, Reality, Power, Soul, and Time) Infinity Stones.
