The recently unveiled Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite has six confirmed playable characters so far. The 6th installment in the game was announced a few days ago during the PlayStation Experience 2016 event. The upcoming fighting game sequel is expected to be released late next year.
So far, six characters has been confirmed for the upcoming Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite:
- Captain America: The main representative for Marvel. He appears to have taken over Wolverine’s place as the main representative for Marvel. Wolverine had previously represented the brand ever since the crossover fighting series included other Marvel characters, seeing as Marvel Vs. Capcom technically started out as X-Men Vs. Street Fighter.
- Iron Man: Another Marvel staple since the second game. War Machine from the first game is technically his palette swap. Capcom seems to base the majority of their Marvel line up from those also present in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, taking advantage of its current popularity.
- Captain Marvel: To be more specific, Carol Danvers, since there are several characters under that alias. She is a new addition to the Marvel roster and also has an upcoming movie.
- Ryu: The main representative for Capcom. What is a Capcom fighting game without Street Fighter, and what is Street Fighter without Ryu?
- Morrigan: The main representative for Dark Stalkers, and another adored staple. Honestly, any Capcom crossover fighting game without the presence of this alluring succubus feels incomplete. Hopefully they include Lilith as well. Expect Felicia to follow.
- Megaman X: Megaman fans rejoice! After years of rampant trolling, Capcom had finally answered your prayers! Some might still complain that it’s X and not the original Megaman. However, X suits the overall tone of the game more. It would be nice to team up X and Zero, assuming he returns for this sequel.
As mentioned in the website of One Angry Gamer, there is also going to be a Mission mode, as well as a immersive cinematic Story mode, aside from the typical arcade mode and training mode.
According to the PCGamer website, Capcom would also implement the Infinity Stones — also from the very first Marvel fighting game, in the game mechanics of Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite.
