Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

THE TRAILER STARTS WITH MEGA MAN X CONFIRMED AS THE FIRST CHARACTER!!!!!

...

(Clears his throat)

I mean, it's good to see a new installment in the MVC series. I just hope they include Felicia and Tron again. Specifically Felicia. She's my main fighter in the franchise.

More info from Playstation's blog:

Features

  • Reborn Rivalries: Universes collide once again in this all-new crossover clash for the ages, where players select their favorite Marvel and Capcom characters and engage in accessible and action-packed 2v2 partner battles.
  • Infinite Power: Pulled from classic Marvel lore, unique and game-changing Infinity Stones can be implemented into players’ strategies as a way to influence the outcome of battle. Each Infinity Stone provides a unique advantage to the player and represents a different aspect of the universe: power, space, time, reality, soul, and mind.
  • Iconic Heroes: Choose from a diverse roster of fan favorite characters pulled from Marvel and Capcom universes, including Iron Man and Captain America from the Marvel side, and Ryu and Mega Man X from Capcom. Many more playable characters will be revealed in the future.
  • Cinematic Story: Heroes and villains battle for supremacy in a timeless struggle set in the Marvel and Capcom universes. The original storyline answers the questions regarding the new clash and lets players step into the shoes of classic characters from both sides as they wage war against powerful forces in an attempt to defeat a new villain.
  • Accessible Single Player Content: In addition to the cinematic story experience, players can hone their skills in a variety of accessible single player modes, including Training, Mission and Arcade modes.
  • Vast Multiplayer Features: Robust online modes and content including ranked and casual matches, global leaderboards, and online lobbies with spectator mode deepen the overall experience.
  • Graphics: Unreal Engine 4 technology pushes the cinematic visuals and next-gen realism into a new era.

Oh, and because a lot of people seem to miss it: the end of the trailer confirms that it's coming to PS 4, Xbox One, and Steam.

[up][up] I was screaming when Mega Man X showed up!

Someone said Capcom must be trying to get on people's good graces by having X be the first character confirmed.

Well you know what? It's FREAKING WORKING!!!

"Cinematic story experience" = Netherrealm style story mode.

Which is good because...look at this. Are you telling me we can't put a script together that somehow involves Iron Man and Morrigan and make it work?

I hope the rumors of X-Men and Fantastic Four characters being embargoed isn't true. MvC just doesn't feel right without Wolverine and Doom.

[up] Wasn't MvC3 touted as having a story written by Frank Tieri? Considering how that turned out (all the "story" was in a little pre-order exclusive comic [later made into a digital comic that was included in Ultimate]), I'm not holding my breath there.

Was expecting the story mode, and expecting it to be cheesy and fun like V and Mortal Kombat's. They made it a point to list the arcade mode, too, so they're learning.

I still can't see the Fantastic Four being characters because there's four of them and the gameplay is specifically 2v2. No X-Men though? That would mean no Sentinel, and I'm OK with that.

I hope Zero is still in. He's far more interesting than X gameplay-wise.

So not trying to freak anyone out, but I think this is the first time that Ryu has not been opposed by Wolverine in the whole face-off thing.

[up] I disagree. X is pretty fun to use with his armors giving him different playstyles, hoping that they make him a hybrid type of character.

This is also X's debut in an official crossover fighting game. Regardless of Zero, the main character of the Mega Man X series getting his due is kind of nice.

X's only other crossover fighting game appearances were fangames at best. MUGEN and Super Smash Flash. Not the best way for him to appear. This is extreme hype. Also, being Mega Man wasn't in MVC 3, this is pretty major to see a Mega Man come back in general.

Honestly, Ultron was my first guess as a villain, but then his chest lighted up with another face. I couldn't think of who that might possibly be, but it makes sense being Sigma in hindsight.

It would not surprise me if those two actually fuse together.

The fact that the first Marvel character shown is Iron Man, the MCU poster-boy, makes it pretty likely the Fox properties aren't coming in.

Now, as much as that sucks, I can't help but think it might be a necessary evil. Marvel Future Fight's been surprisingly creative with its roster, and I imagine a big reason why is because they can't just dip into the X-Men pool. A crossover game really shouldn't be having one franchise make up more than a quarter of the roster. At the very least I'm intrigued at the possibilities.

I'm trying to remember how many crossover games had some main villains of their franchises/company fused together. I only remember Dark Khan from MK VS DC Universe. Not the greatest example ever, but...

Marvel VS Capcom 1 did have a fusion character, but it was just two X-Men characters, so it's not the same thing.

Technically God Rugal in Capcom vs SNK 2 was Rugal with the Satsui no Hadou, and Shin Akuma in that game was Akuma after he'd absorbed Rugal's Orochi power. Marvel Super Heroes vs. Capcom also had an Apocalypse upgraded Cyber Akuma.

Not fusions in the strictest sense but I could see them go that route.

Honestly if the X-Men characters aren't in the game, I may just end up passing on this one. They (along with Spider-Man who I'm sure is safe) have consistently been my favorite Marvel characters to play as and considering that I'm meh on X then if Amaterasu and Phoenix don't make it, then there's no one from 3 that I like (except for Spider-Man). Venom is my last hope.

I wonder if they will include non Marvel and Capcom guests as well...(At east just two...)

Nah, a game that's a crossover between two companies shouldn't have a need for guests from separate characters.

I wasn't expecting to see this! There's something to be said about Mega Man and Captain Marvel(?), two of the most missed characters in MvC3 being amongst the first announced.

They should take a page from Project X Zone and bring out a few obscure characters like Devillote. If they could pull her off in this game as funny as she is in that game, that'd be great!

I hope that Marvel/Capcom doesn't beat around the bush much longer, and just come out at say what the status of Xmen/Fantastic 4 characters are for this game. If showing X first was a deliberate decision, then they're clearly aware of the prevailing opinions of the fanbase, and have to know that this is a major talking point right now.
