A short two days ago Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite received a neat story trailer. We learned that Avengers antagonist, Ultron, would team (read: merge) up with Mega Man enemy, Sigma, to take over both dimensions. However, we weren’t shown much gameplay other than what further described the story. That problem is no longer an issue as the second trailer shows off a glorious two minutes of it.
To be more specific we get to see Chun-Li, Hulk, Strider Hiryu, Thor, Chris Redfield, Hawkeye, and Ultron battle it out on screen. Although the latter utilizes to the “Space Stone” in the trailer and that looks like it will be all kinds of exploitable. Other than that we get to see each character’s base moves along with some Hyper Combos. Yes, that is Hulk smashing down on lava. You can view the footage below.
Additionally, pre-order bonuses were also revealed. Pre-purchasing the Standard Edition to Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will net you a Warrior Thor and Evil Ryu costumes, pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition will come with a 2017 Character Pass, Warrior Thor, Evil Ryu, Gladiator Hulk, Command Mission X skins, and Sigma himself, and finally the Collector’s Edition. This bad boy will feature four, detailed statues of Mega Man X, Chun-Li, Captain Marvel, and Iron Man alongside six, LED-fueled Infinity Stone Replicas.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is being developed by Capcom and will release on September 19th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It looks to continue the popular and critically acclaimed series that started all the way back in 1996 with X-Men vs. Street Fighter. We’re more than positive that future footage will be made available before the game’s release this Fall. Now if only someone could tell the developers that having a team-up of Chris Redfield and Hawkeye is woefully inept compared to the duo of Hulk and Thor.
