Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite’s first weekend saw not one, but two major tournament appearances for the game. While a number of top players were at SoCal Regionals, a many players — including top players from other games — flew down to Florida to compete at CEOtaku.
While a number of familiar names were at the event, the eventual winner (spoiler warning for those who haven’t caught up on the results) was a player better known for dominating other fighting games. At the end of the day, Echo Fox’s SonicFox stood atop the heap as the first CEOtaku Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite champion, beating out the likes of Marvelo, LawKOF, Shah, and even Killer Instinct balance chief Adam “Keits” Heart.
While SonicFox is more known for his dominance in NetherRealm Studios games, his win at MvC:I shouldn’t be surprising when you consider that he’s also a top Skullgirls player. With the latter being a reset-heavy game built on classic Marvel Vs. rules, his success in the similar, reset-focused Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite may have been an eventuality (though maybe not this early).
For those who missed Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite at CEOtaku, the top 8 matches have now been shared to the CEO YouTube channel. You can check these out below.
