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.

  • THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV STEAM EDITION Review

    The smoothness of play and the multitude of fighters from which to choose provide a near excellent time. But, unless a friend’s available for a local versus match, or you’re willing to play online, the initial excitement diminishes after the fourth- or fifth-dozenth round — though this not atypical for the genre. Regardless, fighter-gamers amongst us will walk away satisfied from The King of Fighters XIV.

  • TEKKEN 7 Review

    TEKKEN 7 is well thought-out and produced — to the level of awe. TEKKEN 7 punches the stereotype of simplistic arcade fighters right in the face, and establishes itself as the gold standard that will be difficult to unseat for quite a while.

    Victor Vran: Overkill Edition adds innovative and enjoyable DLC to an already engaging base game.

    Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada is superb and easily drags you into the gameplay, with the ability to train multiple characters and play as them, along with the replayability of the stages. Spirit of Sanada comes highly recommended to fans of the Dynasty Warriors series, or fans of hack-and-slashers, RPGs, or strategy titles, especially ones with a historical theme.

  • 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.

  • Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Episode 1 Review

    While there are some problems with making the player feel truly relevant in influencing the plotline, there are occasions where this does happen, and then you feel taken along for a fascinating ride. Together with the superb voice acting and quality soundtrack, this episode leaves you thirsting for more.

  • 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.
