Capcom has been taking their time in revealing details from upcoming crossover fighter Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite. What better place to reveal four new fighters than San Diego Comic-Con? In a trailer released this morning, Capcom showed off four new (well, returning) playable fighters joining the game’s roster.
All four of the revealed fighters return from the last iteration of the series, Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3. Frank West, Nemesis T-Type, Mike Haggar, and Spider-Man are the new characters revealed in the trailer, and some gameplay footage is shown off for Gamora and Thanos as well. Watch it below:
The trailer also shows off the Mind Stone, one of the Infinity Stones that players select at the start of fights to grant additional powers to their characters.
If they play at all like their past iterations (which it appears they do), we can tell what kind of fighters these four new characters are. Spider-Man, unsurprisingly, is a nimble fighter who attacks from all directions. Frank West, from the Dead Rising series, starts out underpowered, but long combo strings, coupled with his photojournalism skills, can cause him to “level up,” unlocking devastating new weapons and attacks. Resident Evil 3‘s Nemesis is a slow, massive fighter with huge range and strength. Last but not least there is Final Fight‘s Mike Haggar, the mayor of Earth, who is a powerful grappler who tosses his opponents around like rag dolls.
Although Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite has its fair share of returning characters from the last game, new faces like Gamora, Black Panther, Mega Man X, and Ultron are entering the fray. The game releases on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One September 19. Fighters on consoles can download a free story demo to get a taste of the gameplay. Stay tuned for more details on Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite as they become available.
