Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite

Capcom has today announced a handful of new characters for the upcoming cross-over fighter Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite, alongside the first details of the game’s story mode.

Eight new faces have been confirmed to join the roster—five from Marvel and three from Capcom—bringing the total so far to 14. The new characters from Marvel continue to reflect the popularity of the company’s cinematic universe, with Ultron, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, and Rocket Raccoon all set to make an appearance. Capcom, meanwhile, are taking a more varied approach, adding Street Fighter’s Chun-Li, Strider’s Strider Hiryu, and Resident Evil’s Chris Redfield.

Each of these characters will feature a unique moveset and be free to use in the game’s 2-vs-2 team-based battles.

The story mode will see heroes from both universes join forces to battle against Ultron Sigma, a fusion of Marvel’s Ultron and Mega Man’s Sigma, who aims to infect all organic life with a cybernetic virus.

Although the story mode will form the bulk of the single-player experience, players will also have access to Arcade, Training, and Mission modes, as well as the expected multiplayer offering, ensuring that Capcom is not repeating the mistakes of the content-light Street Fighter V launch last year.

Accompanying today’s news, Capcom also announced a deluxe edition of Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite. Retailing for USD$89.99, this deluxe edition will include a character pass, giving purchasers access to six post-launch DLC characters, including Sigma. Unless additional unannounced content is bundled in, the deluxe edition seems slightly overpriced at the present time.

The new characters listed above will join the previously announced Captain America, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Mega Man X, Morrigan, and Ryu.
