Marvel and Capcom Introduce Cinematic Story Mode, Reveal Eight Additional Characters, Announce Pre-Order Details and Release Date

Capcom today announced new information for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite (MVCI), a return of the action-fighting game series. Developed by two companies instead of one, MVCI will feature free-form 2v2 team battles integrated into a wide variety of single player modes and multiplayer content.

MARVEL VS. CAPCOM: INFINITE releases across North America on September 19.

For the first time in franchise history, the Marvel and Capcom universes collide. In Story Mode heroes and villains battle together to save their merged worlds from a sinister new threat, Ultron Sigma.

A combination of the robotic foes known as Ultron from the Marvel Universe and Sigma from the Capcom Universe, this psychotic villain is stated to be “obsessed with infecting all organic life with a cybernetic virus. History’s greatest gathering of warriors must now unite to fight back against Ultron Sigma and save their newly formed world."

Also announced today are new characters, including Ultron, Hulk,  Thor, Hawkeye, Rocket Raccoon, Chun-Li, Strider Hiryu, and Chris Redfield.

Each newly-added character is said to feature unique abilities, iconic special moves and will join other previously-announced characters, including Captain Marvel, Iron Man and Captain America from the Marvel side, and Ryu, Mega Man X and Morrigan from Capcom.

The use of Infinity Stones is also said to further deepen gameplay and allows players to equip and unleash elemental in-game powers, such as Time, Power and Space.

In addition to a cinematic story experience, players can also expect single player Arcade, Training and Mission modes, and multiplayer offerings.

More characters, stages, game features and story mode details will be revealed in the coming months.

  • Overgrowth Review

    Overgrowth, while fun for a while, misses the mark for a captivating story or combat. The world feels uninviting and dead, giving off the feel of a game from the early 2000’s when the processing power of hardware was much more limiting. The combat is fast-paced and fun, but it lacks depth and eventually goes stale. The story that ties it all together feels loose and lacks impact, each character blends into another and consequently prevents the player from connecting at a deeper level. The title does shine for the first hour or two, but it quickly loses its flair.

  • Road Redemption Review

    The updated graphics and physics engine are sure to bring enjoyment and laughs. Road Redemption builds on a relatively simple concept that has worked in the past, repackages it, and allows the unpredictability of other players a large selection of tracks, bikes, and riders in online death races to round out a uniquely enjoyable experience.

  • Absolver Review

    The moments I did have a good time were few and far inbetween, often overlooked and bogged down by repetitious fights and long periods of grinding out moves and experience. The glitches I experienced were numerous, but thankfully Sloclap is aware of most of these problems and is releasing patches to help eliminate them, while also adding new features. If you’re looking for crazy flashy combos and special moves, this isn’t the title for you. While Absolver is a fighting game, it’s a far cry from the likes of Street Fighter, Tekken, or Injustice. With many moves grounded in reality, or at least inspired by them, Absolver’s combat system still requires strategy, but even moreso patience — a quality for which many do not play fighting games.

  • Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite Review

    Regardless of the complaints, Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite proves to earn its place in the powerful series laid out before it. Furthermore, the genre of 2D fighters is a very familiar concept, with a rich history and a dense family of games taking after it. Often, these games can seem too generic to stand out or to feel worthy of any time given, but conversely, many of these games try too hard to make something of themselves, and result in a game far too complex and clunky to be enjoyed in any way. Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite, however, treads this line perfectly and offers an engaging experience born out of a classic style.

  • Redeemer Review

    If only Diablo III was this fun and exciting to play between all the fluff and management overhead, I wouldn’t have abandoned it; Redeemer has excatly what I want when I crave quick, well-produced top-down action content. The secret sauce and energy are in full effect, and the face bashing is exceptionally fun both with hands, along with the more advanced killing methods. Зашибись!
