Returning fighters take on a new threat

Arriving hot on the heels of the announcements made during the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite panel at San Diego Comic Con 2017, a new trailer was released this morning giving us our first look at the recently-confirmed characters.

Spider-Man, Haggar, Frank West, Nemesis, Gamora, and Thanos show off their current-generation capabilities in this new trailer. While the returning fighters appear very similar at first glance, there are bound to be more surprises in store. This can be indicated by Spider-Man’s new Level 3 Spider-Sense hyper combo, which surely pays tribute to the battles with the Green Goblin(s) in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films. The trailer can be found below!

The Capcom Unity blog shared additional background information about the new characters for those less familiar with them. The blog also included details on the Mind Stone and how it affects gameplay. It acts as a command grab that stuns the opponent, allowing for new set ups. The Mind Stone’s Infinity Storm automatically regenerates the hyper gauge, allowing for intensely rapid gauge-building.

IGN posted twelve minutes of direct gameplay footage with the recently-announced characters for those wanting to see the fighters in greater context. Watch the new characters duke it out below!

Fighting game personality,Maximilian also uploaded direct gameplay this morning, featuring the new characters. While this footage does not include additional commentary, Maximilian does state that there will be a more in-depth analysis of the characters and their early capabilities in the near future.

It won’t be long until Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will be out for the masses to enjoy. The title releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 19, with a season pass and multiple collector’s editions. Stick around for more announcements leading up to the highly anticipated title’s release!
