The story of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite‘s development is one littered with repeated leaks. Aside from existence of a new Marvel Vs. game being leaked before Infinite’s official reveal at PSX, footage of the game from a press event was also released before the embargo was lifted. Now, however, it seems that we may have the biggest leak of them all.

In a post over at NeoGAF, Ryce–who was one of the posters behind previous leaks–has now posted a nearly-complete list of what may be the game’s launch roster. The list contains 14 named Marvel characters and 13 Capcom characters, which you can see below:

Marvel

  • Ant-Man
  • Captain America
  • Captain Marvel
  • Doctor Strange
  • Gamora
  • Hawkeye
  • Hulk
  • Iron Man
  • Nova
  • Rocket/Groot
  • Spider-Man
  • Thanos
  • Thor
  • Ultron

Capcom

  • Arthur
  • Chris
  • Chun-Li
  • Dante
  • Firebrand
  • Jedah
  • Monster Hunter
  • Morrigan
  • Nemesis
  • Ryu
  • Spencer
  • Strider Hiryu
  • X
  • [?]

You may note that one Capcom is missing a character. Ryce states that they aren’t certain who this is yet, but that it may be Frank West.

Additionally, Rocket Raccoon is listed as “Rocket/Groot.” Regarding this, Ryce states that they aren’t sure if this means Groot just comes out during some of Rocket’s moves like an assist, or if he’s been redesigned and actually a duo character actually named Rocket/Groot.

Now, as with all leaks, we suggest that you take this with a grain of salt. That said–with E3 just a few weeks away, we’re likely to learn more about the validity of this soon.
