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.

  • Brawlout Early Access Review

    With a limited character pool, no story mode, and very few people that own the game due to its current release state, it is hard to stay online and interested for long periods of time. But, there is no doubt that as this game gains traction in the competitive community, and with piles of kids looking to beat the crap out of each other in a colorful way, Brawlout will find success.

  • Dead Rising 4 - Frank Rising Review

    Frank Rising’s short length must be noted, as less than a handful of hours for $10 may be considered by some a lack of value. Quality trumps quantity, though, and because Frank Rising improves on many aspects laid out by Dead Rising 4, I recommend it to those who already own and might have felt disappointed by the original game.

  • Mass Effect: Andromeda Review

    Andromeda is robust and delivers effectively on the key elements it advertises, and then goes above and beyond regarding play style tailoring and experienceable customization. That said, the characters look more at home in the Sims 3 era, and the dialog fails to be more than lackluster - cringe-worthy at times. Nevertheless, while Mass Effect: Andromeda proves a quality example of its genres, diehard fans of the Mass Effect universe and its original story should wait until BioWare patches the technical bugs, and the price point lowers.

  • River City Ransom: Underground Review

    River City Ransom: Underground is fantastic in how it truly captures the feel of retro games, and it’s clear from the experience that Conatus Creative provides the desire and requisite talent. On top of the original beat-em-up feel, additional features round out the title quite nicely, such as RPG leveling aspects and a fighting engine that packs a punch.

  • Dead Rising 4 Review

    Dead Rising 4 has a bit of an identity crisis. It neither commits to the open-world aspect enough to be considered exemplary in the genre, nor does it deliver enough of the mainstays of the series to satisfy longtime fans. Unfortunately, Dead Rising 4 marks the low point in the franchise, and while you may get some mindless enjoyment from killing zombie hordes, the fun is dying, not rising.
