Though its official release is still a couple of days away, not only has Capcom given some players early access to Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, but some players have been able to purchase the game via stores breaking the street date. The result is that we have even more videos showing off the game, even if it isn’t supposed to be out yet.

First up, we have some Dormammu videos from Olaf Redland. The concept behind the combos shown here is using flight cancelling to continually loop his opponent with his Dark Hole special.

We’ve talked to Olaf a bit more about this, and sadly for anyone thinking we’ve found something gamebreaking, the combo itself isn’t a true infinite. That said, it’s still a pretty good combo, especially with how he can pull it off from nearly full screen.

Speaking of loops, Rynge has shared a video of one way Zero can set up mid-screen lightning loops.

Next up, we have Panda Global’s RayRay showing off a combo for the team of Gamora and Ultron. He seems pretty impressed with the team and says that it’ll likely be his first team in the game.

Meanwhile, Echo Fox’s Justin Wong has been playing around with a number of characters. One of these is Captain America, who Justin demonstrated a pretty damaging Power Stone combo for on his stream in a clip that was shared by Panda Global.

Justin also demonstrated an amazing Spider-Man combo on his stream, that you can see in this clip taken by HiFight.

Flash was also on hand in Justin’s stream and showcased some stuff as well. Here he demonstrates a set up for the team of Rocket Raccoon and Doctor Strange.

HiFight also clipped this bit from Apology Man’s stream, showing him teching two throws from a tag in. The interesting bit here however is basically how it demonstrates that players can use tag ins to set up a second throw after the first attempt is teched.

Spab on the other hand has been experimenting with Ryu, demonstrating how a team can confirm into a combo by tagging out of an anti-air Shoryuken.

He’s also demonstrated a Soul Stone Infinity Storm extension combo for his particular team of Ryu and Strider Hiryu.

Speaking of teams, Evil Geniuses ChrisG has been hard at work with the team of Jedah and Morrigan, aka “Team Darkstalkers”. The king of Morrigan in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has put together a video demonstrating some concepts for the team.

Last, but not least, UltraDavid shared this un-rollable ground reset for Thor.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite officially launches on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on September 19.
