Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite’s Bombastic First Story Trailer Reveals Release Date, New Characters


It has been a quiet few months for Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite, but today the two parties involved in the crossover extravaganza have seen fit to finally pull back the curtain and drop a whole host of new details for the beat ’em up, including a firm release window. Be sure to mark September 19 in your calendar, as that’s the date when you’ll be able to live out your dreams of pitting both Capcom and Marvel’s finest creations against each other in a battle for the ages.

Along with the release date, a whole host of new fighters from both sides, including Hulk, Chris Redfield, Rocket Raccoon, Chun-Li and Ultron are given screen time, the latter of which will take up the mantle of Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite‘s main antagonist. This particular iteration of the misguided A.I has received an upgrade, however, by way of a mutually agreed-upon merging with Sigma, the primary antagonist of Capcom’s Mega Man X series. The resulting entity is one that’s made enemies of both universe’s inhabitants, and it doesn’t look like he’s wanting to make any friends.

In addition to all of the above, a Deluxe Edition that includes a case of sparkling Infinity Stone replicas, premium statues of Iron Man, Mega Man, Captain Marvel and Chun-Li and a special SteelBook case is shown close to the trailer’s climax. No price is announced, but be ready to empty your wallet if you’re intending to pick up the luxurious package, which also boasts access to six additional DLC characters and premium costumes.

There’s no stopping the hype train now. Expect the deluge of new character, stage and story trailers to start coming thick and fast from now on. Before that, though, let us know in the comments below which characters from either side you’re hoping to see included in Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite‘s roster.
