We knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make the debut of Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite any less exciting. SIE Worldwide Chairman Shawn Layden knew this, which is why he wasted little time unveiling the sequel at PlayStation Experience 2016 earlier today.
The cinematic trailer for Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite focuses on a duel between favorites from both sides. Capcom classics Ryu and Mega Man head into battle with Marvel superstars Iron Man and Captain Marvel over what appears to be Infinity Stones. This would follow the rumored theory that the game would borrow heavily from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Following the debut of the trailer, Sony detailed exactly what will be packaged with the sequel, and you can check it out below:
Reborn Rivalries: Universes collide once again in this all-new crossover clash for the ages, where players select their favorite Marvel and Capcom characters and engage in accessible and action-packed 2v2 partner battles.
Infinite Power: Pulled from classic Marvel lore, unique and game-changing Infinity Stones can be implemented into players’ strategies as a way to influence the outcome of battle. Each Infinity Stone provides a unique advantage to the player and represents a different aspect of the universe: power, space, time, reality, soul, and mind.
Iconic Heroes: Choose from a diverse roster of fan favorite characters pulled from Marvel and Capcom universes, including Iron Man and Captain America from the Marvel side, and Ryu and Mega Man X from Capcom. Many more playable characters will be revealed in the future.
Cinematic Story: Heroes and villains battle for supremacy in a timeless struggle set in the Marvel and Capcom universes. The original storyline answers the questions regarding the new clash and lets players step into the shoes of classic characters from both sides as they wage war against powerful forces in an attempt to defeat a new villain.
Accessible Single Player Content: In addition to the cinematic story experience, players can hone their skills in a variety of accessible single player modes, including Training, Mission and Arcade modes.
Vast Multiplayer Features: Robust online modes and content including ranked and casual matches, global leaderboards, and online lobbies with spectator mode deepen the overall experience.
Graphics: Unreal Engine 4 technology pushes the cinematic visuals and next-gen realism into a new era.
In addition to the debut of Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, Layden also revealed that Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be coming to the PlayStation 4 today. Gameplay footage for the sequel will be unveiled later this weekend, so stay tuned!
