Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite‘s latest trailer continues the reveals, with a closer look at the story, a possible new costume for a recent addition to the fighter roster, and some much-needed facial reconstruction work for Chun-Li.
Dubbed a “story trailer,” the latest clip from the upcoming fighter shows off some of the more recently revealed characters in action, including Ghost Rider, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, and Jedah, who seems to be causing more problems for the heroes outside of Ultron Sigma’s threat. With Avengers Iron Man and Captain America divided on letting Thanos free to take back Ultron Sigma’s Infinity Stones , it seems the game’s story is taking a cue from Marvel’s Civil War storyline, pitting former allies against one another.
While no new characters were revealed, some exciting changes were, including the return to Chun-Li’s recognizable face. The initial reveal of the Street Fighter icon had fans demanding for a fix, as she looked downright unrecognizable apart from the blue and gold costume, and it seems the Capcom mainstay is looking closer to her former self, as seen below.
A brief shot of Spider-Man in a black suit also appears, which most likely means we have our first look at an alternate costume for the superhero, with hopefully more to come. Fans are still curious to see if the Marvel variant cover with Mighty Thor’s Jane Foster will be an additional playable character or an alternate skin for Thor. However, Capcom has confirmed the 30 characters available to play at launch have all been shown as of now. Of course, DLC fighters aren’t out of the question, as both Ultron and Sigma will be released down the line.
As for gameplay, Capcom has released the official online and offline modes in Infinite. The offline’s primary mode is the story mission, with Arcade, Mission, Training, and Vs. Player 2 or CPU modes as competitive quickplay style options. A new Collection system was also revealed, which turns Doctor Light’s Database into a gallery for special cut scenes, concept art, and audio tracks. Online players can participate in a variety of PvP modes, including Ranked Match, Casual Match, and even a Beginner League for those who are new to the competitive scene.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 19th.
