Once again the internet has proven too impatient for its own good, and now we have some early Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite gameplay days ahead of when it was supposed to be revealed to the world. Capcom teased, after yesterday's story trailer, that we might see some gameplay later this week. Well, it's here, and it's definitely unofficial footage. There's no intro and no outro, and we still have no idea whither the content originated -- we found it on NeoGAF. Check it out right here:
We get a great pretty much all of the new characters revealed. Our first match stars Thor and Hawkeye, putting Avenger against Avenger. Hulk joins the party before long, and soon ends up fighting Strider, who's just as fast as we remember him.
The revised two-on-two format and Infinity Stones are the big game-changers, here. Marvel vs. Capcom gameplay has always been fast and difficult to follow for the layman, but in MvC:I things are kicked up a notch by the seemingly constant swaps and assists. You'll notice, too, that as players fight and take damage, they have two different gauges that will charge over time.
There seems to be a more traditional power meter at the bottom with a few levels of charge, and then we have an Infinity Stone gauge that charges over time as well, enabling players to summon the power of each stone respectively. Chris Redfield, for example, has no superhuman powers, but after he engages the Time Stone, he's able to zip across the map, teleporting from place to place.
You'll also notice that Chun-Li triggers her Power Stone to unleash a flurry of powerful kicks. We're wondering if each character will have two potential "super" moves, now: one tied to the more traditional meter that we're used to, and one tied to the specific Infinity Stone that he or she has equipped. This could add an interesting layer of depth to the gameplay.
