Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Is Coming, See The Trailer Here

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was revealed today at PSX, and here's the trailer.

Rumors began circulating earlier this week that Capcom would reveal the latest game in its cross-over fighting series at this weekend’s PlayStation Experience.

It’s been just over five years since the last Marvel vs. Capcom game was released. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 came out in 2011 for Xbox 360 and PS3. Sony revealed that the Ultimate edition which followed it later that year is available on PS4 again starting today. Capcom’s license for the Marvel characters expired in 2013, however, meaning the games stopped receiving updates within a couple years release. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Marvel vs. Capcom 2 were pulled from PSN and Xbox Live as a result.

But whereas those games featured X-Men characters like Wolverine and Magneto, the new game is likely to focus more on heroes popular in Marvel’s current cinematic universe like Ant-Man and the crew from Guardians of the Galaxy. The series got its start with X-Men vs. Street Fighter on the original PlayStation in 1998, and this would be the first entry not to include everyone’s favorite mutants.

This led to lots of speculation about how their absence would affect the game’s competitive scene. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has been a mainstay at fighting game tournaments like Evo for several years now.
