Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite launches 19th September, 8 new fighters confirmed

Ultron and Sigma combine to forge a world-shattering new threat

As exciting as our prior Marvel vs. Capcom fighting games have been, we’ve never seen a true fusion of the two iconic universes. Yes, heroes and villains crossed the stream, so to speak, but did we ever really see the worlds collide? In Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, not only will combatants from both sides be hurled into chaos, but they’ll also be hounded by the game’s titanic new threat — Ultron Sigma, a fusion of two of the most menacing mechanoids from the Marvel and Capcom universes.

Ultron. Sigma. Infinity Stones. Marvel and Capcom locations fused together. What more do you need?

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will officially launch on the 19th September, 2017. And once you’ve (presumably!) saved the universe in Story Mode, you’ll still have Arcade, Training, and Mission modes to consider, plus various multiplayer offerings, naturally.

And who’s fighting to save the day? We’re pleased to announce the following additions to the Infinite roster:

  • Ultron
  • Hulk
  • Thor
  • Hawkeye
  • Rocket Raccoon
  • Chun-Li
  • Strider Hiryu
  • Chris Redfield

Pre-orders begin today, and there are three different ways to join the fight against Ultron Sigma – Standard Edition, Deluxe Edition (which includes the 2017 Character Pass, giving you access to six post-launch characters — the first one being Sigma himself) and the Collector’s Edition (with four detailed, interlinking dioramas from TriForce, plus LED-powered Infinity Stones).

It should for £200…

Nice but I guess we won’t see the final roster until E3?

Please, please, please add legacy controller support!

Can’t say I’m interested in the game much (first one was decent, 2nd was an overrated mess with horrible music, 3rd was just kinda dull) and the MCU stuff really puts me off but I’d quite like the Chun Li figurine.

I guarantee that this will require a season pass for more that one year if you want all characters. Capcom are atrocious nowadays and I won’t buy this drivel despite liking previous games.


Oh great, DLC paywalled characters for a full-price fighting game. Classic Capcom.

After the street fighter 5 fiasco I don´t think I wanna buy any capcom fighting game ever again.
