For some time now, we’ve been wondering at who the final four unrevealed characters for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite‘s first wave of DLC characters will be; we now know that Monster Hunter, Winter Soldier, Black Widow and Venom (but not Gill, it seems) will be coming to the game this year, in the wake of Sigma and Black Panther. Capcom has released the information via MvC:I’s pre-release Capcom-Unity blog post.
Most of these characters have previously been hinted at in the many leaks surrounding the game’s development. Some of these, such as the Monster Hunter, have already been spotted in the game’s story mode. However, this is the first mention of Black Widow. Her inclusion seemingly imbalances the roster by giving it 4 Marvel characters and just 2 Capcom characters as DLC. That said, we’d like to note that there is also a Capcom character called Black Widow that comes from Ring of Destruction: Slam Masters II. Though this instance referring to her is unlikely.
While no release date for the characters has been set, all six will eventually be released later this year.
