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.
