Posted by | August 18, 2017 | News, PC, PlayStation 4, Video, Xbox One | No Comments

Capcom has released the latest cinematic trailer for the new story mode of upcoming fighting game mash-up, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite releases September 19 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

The new trailer shows off a lot more scenes from the story campaign, including the villain (a mash-up of Ultron and Sigma) gaining control of two of the six infinity stones. Some of the heroes decide to bring in Thanos to help, and other heroes aren’t too pleased about that.

There’s some neat team-up combos shown in the trailer, like Captain America shield-boosting Mega Man, and Hulk throwing Ryu. Voice acting is solid but the lip-syncing looks cringe-worthy.

The trailer confirms several new fighters, including Jedah and Ghost Rider. Other newly confirmed characters include Dormammu and Firebrand.

As many feared, there also doesn’t appear to be any X-Men in the roster at all. It’s unsurprising given the mutant’s film rights still remain at Fox. The marvel roster is mostly made up of MCU characters like the Avengers, Spider-Man, and the Guardians of the Galaxy. A total of 30 playable characters will be available, with Capcom’s roster coming from games like Darkstalkers, Resident Evil, and Street Fighter.

Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite will be the sixth game in the MvC fighting game series. Infinite will be the first game in the series to feature a cinematic story mode. It also switches the signature tag team battles from three-on-three to two-on-two.

Several different online and offline modes have also been revealed, including online Ranked, Casual and Beginners League modes. Offline includes the Story campaign, classic Arcade mode, and character-specific challenge Missions.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite releases September 19 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A limited story demo is available to download now on PS4 and Xbox One.
