Marvel vs Capcom


 

We’ve seen plenty of potential roster leaks for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite since the game was first announced, but now data miners may have finally outed the definitive list of playable characters.

By diving into the files of the game’s recently released story demo, data miners appear to have discovered a full list of files referring to fighters who’ll eventually appear on the character select screen. An image depicting the file list has made the rounds on Reddit and Twitter, though the original source is unclear at the moment. As such, you may want to take it with a grain of salt.

Here’s the image in question:

And for those of you who don’t feel like piecing that confusing collage together, here’s what the actual roster would appear to be if the findings are genuine (unannounced characters in bold):

Capcom

  • Arthur
  • Chris Redfield
  • Chun-Li
  • Dante
  • Firebrand
  • Frank West
  • Hunter (perhaps from Monster Hunter)
  • Jedah
  • Mega Man X
  • Mike Haggar
  • Morrigan Aensland
  • Nathan Spencer
  • Nemesis
  • Ryu
  • Sigma (DLC)
  • Strider Hiryu
  • Zero

Marvel

  • Black Panther (DLC)
  • Captain America
  • Captain Marvel
  • Doctor Strange
  • Dormammu
  • Gamora
  • Ghost Rider
  • Hawkeye
  • Hulk
  • Iron Man
  • Nova
  • Rocket Raccoon
  • Spider-Man
  • Thanos
  • Thor
  • Ultron
  • Venom
  • (previously rumored DLC)

  • Winter Soldier

Current speculation is that three other characters listed in the files—Dahren Mohran, Death, and Grandmaster—will only appear in the story and will not be playable.

Now, if that list is accurate and indeed derived from the demo files, it points to two very worrying outcomes for fans of the series. The first is that absolutely no representatives from the X-Men will be on the roster, not even Marvel vs. Capcom staples like Magneto or Wolverine.

The second is that DLC characters will apparently already be on the disc when the game ships, at least in some form. Again, assuming this is an actual, data mined list of files, we can already see two characters who are confirmed as downloadable content: Black Panther and Sigma. One of the unannounced fighters, Venom, was previously rumored to arrive as DLC, too. There are also more characters listed here than previous leaks have alluded to, indicating that some or all of the currently unannounced ones will be added to the game after launch.

On-disc DLC has been a point of contention for Capcom fans in the past, since the inclusion of the fighters within the game at launch indicates the publisher is simply holding back content that’s already finished so it can extract more money from players. That may not be entirely fair in this case, given that we know that some, if not all, DLC characters will play a role in the game’s story. Perhaps the files here are necessary to include them in the plot, but work to make them playable and balanced won’t wrap up until the game ships. Either way, though, it’s not a good look.

We’re sure to find out more about the full roster as we approach Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite‘s September 19th launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
