Sony put the spotlight onto Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite during its E3 presentation in the small hours of the morning, releasing two trailers for the hotly-anticipated fighting game, as well as announcing the release of a story mode demo for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which is available to download now.
As part of the presentation, eight new playable characters were also revealed, with Thanos, Gamora, Nova and Doctor Strange joining the fight from the Marvel side, along with Capcom’s Dante (Devil May Cry), Arthur (Ghosts & Goblins), Zero (MegaMan X), and Spencer (Bionic Commando). That brings the total announced roster up to 22 so far.
The Capcom and Marvel universes are set to collide once again, pitting the most courageous combatants from each legendary pantheon against one another in a super-powered, bare-knuckle brawl.
Blast your opponents to smithereens with Mega Man X’s signature Buster Gun, break out your inner tech genius with Iron Man’s cutting edge abilities or give your enemies the ultimate beat-down as Captain Marvel.
In the world of the superhuman though, nothing is ever as it seems. The incredible power of the Infinity Stones is yours – and your opponents – to wield in battle, shifting the balance with their unique abilities such manipulating time or unleashing untold power.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will be released for PS4, Xbox One and PC on September 19th.
