With Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite‘s release right around the corner, a final character has been revealed. Or, to be more accurate, a final form.
Be warned that there are minor spoilers ahead, but seeing as how we already know who the main enemy is, it shouldn’t be too shocking if you want to take an early peek.
The team at EventHubs (via WWG) revealed leaked footage of the final boss, which has since been taken down. However, before the video was removed, screenshots were taken to show off Ultron Sigma’s final form, as seen below (via a90skid). It appears Ultron will fuse into the giant head of Sigma to use blades, large claws, and control Sigma’s beam cannon. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3‘s Galactus took on a similar style, turning into a gigantic version of itself.
The large version of Sigma’s head is an iconic choice, as a majority of his final forms in the Mega Man X series show him as larger-than-life. Mega Man X, X2, and X6‘s final Sigma battles all feature his clown-like face needing to be taken down, but the most similar look to Infinite‘s aesthetic is the opening and closing fights from Mega Man X5.
It also makes sense that Ultron and Sigma would fuse together as one, seeing as how both machines have been known to infect and take over other machinery. However, for the Marvel vs. Capcom universe, melding two playable characters together is a first, so it’s interesting to see the new direction Infinite is taking. Perhaps we could see more characters fuse together down the line using a special Infinity Stone power or just out of sheer lore shenanigans.
If the game’s epic final battle seems appealing, there’s still time to pre-order the fighter and earn a few launch day goodies. The Deluxe and Collector’s editions of Infinite will give players four extra variant costumes. Warrior Thor, Evil Ryu, Gladiator Hulk, and Command Mission X will give the characters a new look, with hopefully more variant DLC to come for the other fighters down the line.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 19th.
