X Confirmed for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite!
Big news from PlayStation Experience today. They announced a new Marvel vs. Capcom game called Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. The trailer shows Mega Man X and Ryu fighting against Iron Man and Captain Marvel.

Here's the debut trailer:

Well that's certainly interesting. Never really played any of the franchise mashup fighting games other than Smash Bros., but I'm interested to see where this goes.

Niceeeeeee

I wonder if Zero will show up at all. Maybe he will be the DLC costume this time around.

Apparently for the Marvel roster they are focusing on MCU characters (what a shock) which may mean little or no X-Men characters. That's disappointing, seeing as they're series staples. What is MvC without Cyclops? But I digress.

Anyway, I'm so glad to see my boy X back in a game, even if its not a Mega Man game.

Knowing Capcom, Zero will either be unlockable or a DLC Character. Or will be in the Ultimate version.

Also the lack of X-Men is more of a "Fuck You" towards Fox. Which also means no Deadpool, Cable, Super Skrull, Dr. Doom, Magneto, Jean Grey, Sentinel, Storm, and I can't remember who else was in 3. On the other hand, it would be nice to see fresh faces added to the roster.

Any idea who that is in the final shot? Most places I been think it's Sigma and/or Ultron.

Honestly, that last figure? I kind of think it's Thanos, just based on the outline of the glove (it, sort of looks like the Infinity Gauntlet?) Why he has glowy booblights that look like eyes, is beyond me mind. Even they don't make sense for Sigma or Ultron. And I'd actually be happy with either Sigma or Ultron turning up, especially if Ultron looks like his MCU self.
One of the weirder theories is that it's Sigma COMBINED with Ultron. That'd be neat, but is it really a possibility?

It is also nice to see a, ya know, a Mega Man representing Mega Man again.

I'm hoping they don't drop all X-Men, at the very least keep a few of the more popular ones, (Wolverine's been in it from the beginning, and he's crazy popular as a character. Fox owning the rights to him or not, he should really stay. And they'd be missing a huge opportunity if they don't use Deadpool and actually have a reference to the Fox/MCU rift, I mean come on!)


On the other hand, I agree with Clown, it'd be nice to see a few fresh faces, and it's not like the MCU is short on good characters.

RE: X Confirmed for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite!
I must admit, Mega Man X is a very welcome surprise, I do wonder exactly what moves he's going to have.

And regarding the mysterious 4-eyed slouching figure who may or may not be the boss character (they did try to pull a fast one on us with Dormammu). This might just be me seeing patterns where there aren't any, but I'm more inclined to think this is a Capcom character than a Marvel character. Judging by the previous MvC games, they seem to flip-flop between who owns the boss character, since apparently Abyss from MvC2 is a Capcom owned character, not a Marvel one.

Of course, this also means our boss character might be someone we've never met, ever.

RE: X Confirmed for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite!
It could be the Sigma Virus combined with Ultron (is a MCU character) or even the Super-Adaptoid (not in the MCU at this point but could be used to replicate any lost character, like how the Super Skrull was the Fantastic 4). Problem with Ultron is that his eyes would be glowing red (which neither set does) while Sigma has blue eyes (which the top set does). Doesn't explain the 2nd set but that could any number of reasons. There could be a couple of villains like in 3, but I think we should look at anyone related to X, Ryu, Captain Marvel and Iron Man (they didn't just randomly pick characters). They could also pull a CVS/SVC with it being a known character but a different form, ala God Rugal or Violent Ken. Wait, who's actually developing it, the US or Japanese devs?

Ooooohhh....got the colors mixed up. That throws a wrench into that theory.

Well if they do drop the X-Men characters..it is probably due to the insane payment to use them for the game.

(I think)

RE: X Confirmed for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite!
If the rumor of the Marvel side focusing more on the MCU is true, they would be dropping the X-Men to spite Fox (all the characters the game will use will boost the profile of the movies, like Captain Marvel) because a character like Wolverine will help boost the profile for the new Logan movie (Fox's movies aren't part of the MCU). It's why the MCU has Enhanced Persons or Gifted Persons or the Inhumans, with not a Mutant in sight.

Speaking of which, I wonder if we'll get Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.

It's likely more an issue of Capcom not being able to get the licenses for the X-Men characters than mere spite. Because Activision might still have the X-Men video game license.

Didn't Activision have the license during MvC3?

Yeah, but that was before the contracts expired and all the Marvel games had to be pulled from the online stores for a while. Activision had to renegotiate the contract to release the PS4 and Xbox One rereleases of Deadpool, and Capcom must have renegotiated the contract for this game and the PS4 rerelease of UMvC3 (which, BTW, is out now), so who knows how the licensing works now.

EDIT: New gameplay trailer!

Finally, after the disastrous launch of Street Fighter 5 I was hoping that Capcom would correct things with another game but never expected marvel vs capcom 3 so soon. Just hope they wont ruin it this time

So Ultron Sigma is confirmed the game's final boss, with Ultron by himself confirmed for the game's launch. Even more interesting is Sigma and a Command Mission costume for X are DLC. This is some heavy duty Mega Man representation.

That Sigma model looks awful, though; I sincerely hope it gets more refinement down the line.

RE: X Confirmed for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite!
I'm curious what the second phase is gonna be. Original game was two forms of Onslaught, 2 was 3 forms for Abyss, and 3 was random villains followed by Galactus.
