Could this upcoming new peripheral possibly signal continued support for the latest entry in the Vs. Series?

Things have unfortunately been extremely quiet on the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite front. The final three announced DLC characters — Black Widow, Winter Soldier, and Venom — arrived last December, with the game receiving its last major update in late January. There was a recent update made to the game, but it was predicted to have simply removed anti-piracy software and nothing more has come of it. Both companies remain completely silent on any sort of concrete future for the title, despite mostly-reputable leaker Dasvergeben predicting a Season 2 DLC character lineup of Star-Lord, Ms. Marvel, Gill, Asura, Lady, and Vergil that still has yet to materialize. However, it appears that Razer is set to release a brand-new arcade stick based off of the crossover title, as a Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite-branded Razer Panthera was spotted on the E3 2018 show floor at the Capcom booth, with stick aficionado Mark “MarkMan” Julio claiming the art direction for it.

Sporting the latest game’s logo, as well as some gorgeously re-imagined wrap-around artwork based off an old promotional piece from 1999’s Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes (but featuring Infinite’s roster) the item was interestingly labeled as “coming soon,” meaning that we’ll hopefully be able to get our hands on this stylish gaming accessory in the near future.

Though it may not be the exact news players and fans want to hear when it comes to MAHVEL, this is hopefully a positive sign that the project hasn’t been outright abandoned, and that we could still see further support for Infinite down the line. You can view tweets and photos of the new Razer Panthera model below.

There is no word on when this item will release or how much it will cost, but we’ll keep you updated right here on Shoryuken if there are any concrete announcements.
