Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is all about the tag-team action. In the past, Marvel vs. Capcom games let you choose three characters per fight, but this time around you’re limited to two. The trade-off is these two characters act like more of a cohesive team, unleashing powerful combo moves and attacks.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite dropped its first story trailer earlier this week, but now we get an official look at the game in action. Appropriately, the new trailer largely focuses on fast and furious action, and some unexpected Marvel/Capcom team-ups including Chun-Li and the Hulk (now there’s a beauty and the beast scenario if I’ve ever seen one), Thor and Strider Hiryu, and Hawkeye and Chris Redfield. Hey, I thought this was supposed to be Marvel vs. Capcom. The two sides seem to be getting along pretty well!
The trailer also gives us a good look at Ultron in action, who’s joining the Marvel vs. Capcom fray for the first time. Here’s how Capcom describes the new fighter:
“Ultron makes his first appearance in the Marvel vs. Capcom series and brings with him a sinister set of attacks to dispatch his foes. Most notable, is the ability to summon an endless army of drone reinforcements to aid him in battle. He can summon these both on the ground and in the air. The drones also come in two flavors, one stays back assisting Ultron with a beam to cover him with the second version charging forward and smashing his opponent with a powerful blast of energy.”
Some Marvel vs. Capcom veterans like Hulk and Strider Hiryu are also bringing some new weapons to the fight…
“Hulk is armed with his new Gamma Crush attack that creates a vicious volcano and Strider Hiryu’s new air super gives him the ability to slash his opponents from anywhere on the screen.”
It definitely looks like Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will be delivering the crazy, over-the-top action fans have grown to love. I can’t wait to see what other strange dream teams fans will be able to cook up.
Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite teams up on the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on September 19. You can check out all of WWG’s coverage, right here.
