The roster for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was reportedly leaked recently, and it was missing characters from some big-name series like X-Men and Fantastic Four. Now another possible roster has hit the internet, and it both confirms and expands upon the previous leak and what we already know about the game’s characters.
All of the previously leaked fighters are included in the new leak, with some interesting additions to both the DLC and core roster. On the Capcom side, the newly named characters are Leon Kennedy from Resident Evil, Captain Commando, Frank West from Dead Rising, and Asura from Asura’s Wrath. Rathalos, a Monster Hunter dragon (named on the list but “may have been cut” or included as part of Monster Hunter’s move-set according to the leak), and Sigma (as a DLC character), which we previously reported on.
The new Marvel characters listed are Doctor Octopus, Songbird, Ms. Marvel, Black Panther, Star-Lord, and Black Widow, with Venom being listed as a DLC character or possibly a pre-order bonus. Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Groot is mentioned as part of Rocket Raccoon’s move-set, which matches up what we’ve seen so far. Interestingly, Nova and Gamora—two characters from the last leak—are missing from the new list.
The leak also included some details about Capcom’s plans for future DLC, which will be released about every three months.
The firs big batch of DLC will reportedly be “Fantastic Four vs. Darkstalkers” and will include Dr. Doom and Silver Surfer. The second big DLC will be “X-Men vs. Street Fighter,” with Wolverine, Cyclops, and Deadpool named as the Marvel representatives for that season of content.
Here’s an updated list to include all the characters named in the most recent leak (those with asterisks were previously leaked but not mentioned in the latest leak):
- Captain Commando
- Chris Redfield
- Frank West
- Leon Kennedy
- Monster Hunter
- Sigma (DLC)
- Strider Hiryu
- Black Panther
- Black Widow
- Captain America
- Captain Marvel
- Doctor Octopus
- Doctor Strange
- Iron Man
- Ms. Marvel
- Rocket (with Groot in his move-set)
- Venom (DLC)
To be clear, the original poster did mention that not all of the characters listed here would necessarily be available at launch, but there are some interesting additions. Playable characters confirmed so far by various marketing materials are Hulk, Hawkeye, Thor, Captain Marvel, Chun-Li, Strider Hiryu, Chris Redfield, and Iron Man. Additionally, a cinematic trailer that was released in April showed Ultron and Sigma fusing to form Ultron Sigma, who looks to be the main antagonist in the game’s story mode. No word yet on whether that character will be playable or simply the two individual characters.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 17th.
