Today Capcom has presented a new trailer for its fighting game Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, which showcases some story details of this fourth entry in the series. The new menace presented involves Marvel and Capcom characters joining forces…literally, as Marvel’s diabolic robot Ultron fuses with Mega Man X’s villain Sigma to create a powerful entity that could beat every hero on Earth.
The trailer starts with both robotic villains talking about eliminating all biological life forms, and then goes to present the new creation unoriginally called Ultron Sigma. After that, we see some battles between characters from both companies against the legion of robots supporting their new leader.
While the roster of fighters still remains a mystery for the most part, at least we get to see some more names confirmed, including Thor, Hawkeye, Ultron, Rocket Raccoon and Hulk from Marvel and Strider Hiryu, Chun-Li and Chris Redfield from Capcom. They join the previously confirmed names of Iron Man, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Ryu, Morrigan and Mega Man X.
Capcom has also taken the chance to announce a deluxe edition that includes a character pass with the six additional fighters that will join the game after release, from which one of them has been revealed to be Sigma. Pre-ordering this deluxe edition will also give us access to some special costumes including Warrior Thor, Evil Ryu, Gladiator Hulk, and Mega Man Command Mission X.
There will also be an extremely good-looking collector’s edition which includes the content of the deluxe edition plus four interlinking dioramas featuring Chun-Li, Mega Man X, Captain Marvel and Iron Man, plus a box containing LED-powered Infinity Stones.
Marvel seems to be working hard on offering a good experience for single player modes, with the game including modes like story, training and versus. The story mode in particular is expected to develop through impressive video scenes, which may seem to be a reaction to the critics of the original story mode of Street Fighter V.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite launches on September 19th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Check out the new trailer below.
