Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite gets its first story trailer, more characters, and a release date

06:07 PM April 26, 2017

Capcom is taking the MvC storyline to a whole new level.

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 truly 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.


You read that right. They’re bringing together the two biggest baddies of their own universes – Ultron and Sigma – and fusing them together.

Capcom also announced eight new playable characters, which they featured in the trailer.


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

This adds to the seven already announced, bringing the total so far to 15.

Marvel vs Capcom pre-orders begin today for the US, with the Standard Edition at $59.99, which gets you the game, and Warrior Thor and Evil Ryu Premium Costumes.

Pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition gets you everything in the Standard Edition, plus Gladiator Hulk and Command Mission X. The Deluxe Edition also includes the 2017 Character Pass, which gives you access to six post-launch characters – the first one being Sigma himself! This package will set you back $89.99.

The Collector’s Edition, which will cost $199.99, will get you all the aforementioned in-game items, plus some cool physical items as well. You get four highly detailed interlinking dioramas of X, Chun-Li, Captain Marvel, and Iron Man, from TriForce. You also get the six Infinity Stones in a premium case to help you take over the universe, and the competition. Thanos who?

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

It’s just one of many selling points for MvC:I, which will officially release on September 19th, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. 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.
