The Marvel vs. Capcom franchise is back in 2017, pitting the likes of Iron Man, Captain Marvel, and Gamora against characters such as Ryu, Chun-Li, and Nemesis.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Release Date

The release date for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is currently scheduled worldwide for September 19, 2017. This puts it well out of the way of Injustice 2, another popular fighting game that released in May 2017 to largely positive reviews. With Injustice 2 out of the way, there should be no other major fighting games towards the end of the year with which Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite should have to compete.

Full Character Roster for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

This is all according to a NeoGAF user that has a track record of being correct with Marvel vs. Capcom information, who leaked the full character roster through the site just a matter of days ago. We’ve posted the full character list from both Marvel and Capcom just below:

  • Arthur
  • Chris
  • Chun-Li
  • Dante
  • Firebrand
  • Jedah
  • Monster Hunter
  • Morrigan
  • Nemesis
  • Ryu
  • Spencer
  • Strider Hiryu
  • X
  • Ant-Man
  • Captain America
  • Captain Marvel
  • Doctor Strange
  • Gamora
  • Hawkeye
  • Hulk
  • Iron Man
  • Nova
  • Rocket/Groot
  • Spider-Man
  • Thanos
  • Thor
  • Ultron

The NeoGAF user who leaked the supposed list was unsure whether Rocket Racoon and Groot are their own separate characters, or whether it would be Rocket featuring assists from Groot.

The Gameplay and Story of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

The story of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is a decidedly strange one. Ultron and Sigma form an alliance, believing all organic life must be purged, and use two Infinity Stones to fuse themselves into one being, called Ultron Sigma. They then merge the two worlds of Marvel and Capcom, and all the other characters in the game must band together in order to defeat Ultron Sigma.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite pits two teams of two characters against each other, in tag team battles, and utilises a free flowing assist system, meaning players can tag in their other teammate at any time. Through this system, you can tag in your partner during an attack, meaning you can form huge combos of attacks using the tag system.

Infinity Stones also play a key part in fights, as each player selects an Infinity Stone to take into battle with them, and are then able to use this Infinity Stone ability at any time. The ability varies between each stone, for example the Power Stone produces a knockback effect, while a Space Stone pulls the enemy character closer to the player.

There have also been changes to the control scheme for Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, as there are four total attack buttons, with a light punch, a heavy punch, a light kick, and a heavy kick being available. On top of this, there are also universal inputs for all characters, such as four presses of the attack button equalling three quick attacks in succession.

This is all the information we have right now on Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, as the game is just a few months away from releasing worldwide. We’ll keep updating this page with any additional information regarding the game, in order to make this an up-to-date hub of knowledge for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.
