With the Monster Hunter receiving the first gameplay trailer at last weekend’s Tokyo Game Show, many are waiting with bated breath to see how Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite‘s other DLC characters will look in-game. Besides Sigma and Black Panther’s brief appearances in MvC:I’s Story Mode, we’re in the dark when it comes to Black Widow, Venom and the Winter Soldier.

However, that’s all changed thanks to Reddit user Futcharist, who posted an Imgur link to some leaked concept art showing off all the DLC characters. Based off the images, they are likely to be unlocked in the Collection Mode after completing an Arcade Mode run with each character.

We can see that Sigma and Black Panther look similar to their Story Mode appearances, with the diabolical Reploid being shown both with and without his cape. He will likely remove the cape during his pre-match introduction, similar to his fused counterpart Ultron Sigma. He wields his signature beam saber, which is not surprising seeing as Ultron Sigma also uses the energy sword in battle. Panther is also shown both with and without his cape, suggesting he may also remove it before a fight.

As for Venom, he retains his classical comic book appearance, strongly suggesting that the symbiote will once again be hosted by Eddie Brock, as was the case in his two previous appearances in the Versus series. Black Widow and Winter Soldier’s designs draw heavily upon their counterparts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where they are played by Scarlett Johansson and Sebastian Stan respectively.

In addition to her dual pistols, Black Widow comes equipped with a pair of electric batons that will likely be used to stun her foes for combo extensions, or perhaps utilized a rekka chain similar to Injustice 2‘s Red Hood. Meanwhile, Winter Soldier brings his fair share of firearms, along with knives, his signature prosthetic arm, as well as a pair of grenades that will likely be used as either traps or zoning tools.

You can see a few of the pictures below but for the full gallery, visit the Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite Reddit page.

All these characters are scheduled for release before the end of 2017, so expect these six fighters to be gracing your screens soon.
