Can you believe it’s been five long months, since we’ve been given any information on one of the most anticipated fighting games in recent memory. Well the folks at Marvel & Capcom delivered not only a trailer but also some gameplay. With more information looming, I wanted to give my initial thoughts on all this MVCI HYPE!
Having rewatched the trailer several times, I have to admit that the trailer itself is lacking that X factor. I struggled as to figure out what exactly was the trailer lacking and it was the music. The Marvel Vs. Capcom is known for it’s music and I get that for a story trailer you may not want to use music from the game, the music that is there feels lackluster. With that being stated as fan of both universes seeing Sigma and Ultron fuse to become UltronΣ with various heroes fighting for their lives had me roaring. Hopefully this means that Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite will actually have a story mode unlike Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, (which barely had any single player content at all).
Thankfully the story trailer confirmed several characters and I wont waste your time by listing them here, but none of them are surprise picks. The exceptions being Ultron and Sigma, so I hope they’re saving the crazier picks for E3 or just continue to do press releases similar to Injustice 2. I get that most likely Marvel wants to appeal to fans of the MCU but to fans of the comics as well. I’m rooting for you Ant-Man and Ms.Marvel!
The final shocker is that this game will release on September 17th! With how fast time flies these days, Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite is not that far off, and it’s coming way shorter than even I expected. The game still looks rough from a gameplay and HUD perspective so if this game gets delayed by two months I won’t be that upset. What are your thoughts on all the new Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite trailer? Let me know in the comments below!
