Thanks to earlier roster leaks, Capcom’s not going to have too many surprises to share in regards to Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite‘s pre-release character announcements, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look forward to their official gameplay debuts. Marvel’s Spider-Man, as well as Capcom’s Mike Haggar, Frank West and Nemesis, all got their first official gameplay yesterday at SDCC and boy, do they all look a treat to play as.
Sure, those who count themselves as Marvel fans above all else might feel slightly shortchanged by the singular announcement for that side of the crossover, but quality over quantity couldn’t be truer for the web slinger, who looks every bit as sleek and nimble as you’d expect of the superhero.
As for the trio of new Capcom fighters entering the ring, each looks similar to their previous appearance in predecessor Marvel vs. Capcom 3, though with the addition of a few new tricks. As expected of the Final Fight mainstay, Haggar utilizes his impressive bulk to overpower opponents, at one point in the trailer taking Frank West for a sky-high spin, only to bring him crashing back down to earth with a brutal piledriver.
Likewise, Nemesis is equally as intimidating, though he looks to be largely unchanged from MvC3. Admittedly, he had the briefest screen time of all the characters, so there should still be plenty to see in regards to Resident Evil 3‘s big nasty. On the other hand, despite him largely being considered a joke character, Mr. West appears to have been given the biggest overhaul of the four, his new super ability a fantastic homage to Dead Rising‘s wacky weapon combo system.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is out September 19 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
