Despite some issues with the PC version of Street Fighter V, Capcom hasn’t been deterred from releasing their new fighting games on our platform. Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, their new dream team-up fighter coming late 2017, has been confirmed for simultaneous release across the latest consoles and our own little boxes. The latest extended trailer, above, also confirms Marvel’s Captain America and Morrigan, of Darkstalkers and scantily clad fame, as playable characters.
Quite the flow of updates for upcoming PC games coming out of Playstation Experience this weekend.
In a press release, Capcom say that the game will “simultaneously release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC worldwide in late 2017.” Beyond that, it seems they’ve taken the poor reception of the feature-light Street Fighter V into consideration, promising that there will be a “visually stunning and immersive cinematic Story Mode” along with various single-player arcade, training and “mission” modes.
As for how it plays, not a lot of information on that is yet out there. There’s power gems and no assists in a 2v2 format, making it not a whole lot like the past couple of iterations of Marvel vs. Capcom. PCGN weekend writer extraordinaire and fighting game aficionado Sam Foxall tells me it bares much more resemblance to Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, a nichely popular series from the early 2000s. We won’t really know for sure until Capcom reveal more as we push towards that late 2017 release.
In the mean time, it was also announced that the current gen port of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 - arguably the dumbest fighting game ever made - will make it to PC in a couple of months after a PS4 timed exclusivity wears off. That’ll be in March.
