I'll consider it a win if we never get a Captain "Hydra Yes, But Not A Nazi, Honest" America skin.

. . . I also think SFIV looks better than SFV. I think that there's something about high-poly fighting game character models that Capcom hasn't quite figured out yet. I don't know enough about design and animation to say what it is. But more triangles isn't making it better, for me at least. (I'm the most casual of the casuals though, so they don't need it to look good for me, really...)
Nothing against the look of Capcom's fighters (We've come a long way from Street Fighter EX and Rival Schools) but in an ideal world, Capcom would commission Arc System Works to work their "actually 3D but looks 2D" witchcraft on all their fighting games.

I liked Deadpool's level 3 hyper combo in MVC3, but I just realized what would have been the perfect reference for him to have.

No it isn't. X-Men vs. Street Fighter didn't have assists, either. If anything, it's taking a page from Street Fighter X Tekken with all those tag-out options.

I don't know why everyone is freaking out about this...the situation was exactly the same when MVC3 dropped, and X-Men as well as Fantastic 4 characters showed up with no issue. Spidey was a delayed announcement for MVC3 as well (which was fucking weird considering he's their biggest name, but what do I know?)

Yeah but nobody really played the series competitively until it started using assists. I haven't read anything else about mechanics in this game. Making it more like SFxT definitely sounds like a good thing to me, which I'm surprised to hear myself think.

Oh they did...you just weren't around for it. X-Men vs. Street Fighter was a god damned mess of a game once the pros got their hands on it!

Isn't it / Children of the Atom where most of the Storm and Magneto combo shenanigans came from originally anyway?

Because Marvel's been pushing the cinematic universe more and more in recent years and FOX having the film rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four complicates that?

I'm not freaking out over it (you could make a good fighter cast out of just Spider-Man villains if you really wanted to), but when X-Men and F4 characters are cut out of merchandise based on comic covers they had been a part of, and they've stopped making guest showings in newer cartoons, and then Marvel and Capcom announce a fighter that's based more on the MCU, there's a little cause for concern.

Doesn't have to be a whole roster announcement at once, just knowing that Wolverine or Deadpool or Dr. Doom was returning would be great.

But that push was there for MVC3 as well. Iron Fist, Rocket Raccoon, Ghost Rider, Dr. Strange, Hawkeye showed up to garner interest and knowledge. Doom, Super Skrull, Wolvie, Magneto, Storm, Sentinel, X-23, and Phoenix were there with no issue...it's not like they don't have the means to bring them back again. What, did the MOVIE licensing suddenly get tighter or some bullshit? I'm not panicking about it, and I don't think anyone else should, either.

While you're right about MvC3, that was about six years ago, and yes, since then Marvel has been much more aggressive about deemphasizing merch/licensed material for characters they don't have the movie rights for (the most infamous example is a T-shirt based on the cover of the '80s Secret Wars, with the FF and mutant characters literally replaced by Inhumans).

So yes, this could easily go either way, but there is more reason for concern now than there was in 2011.

Capcom is celebrating Bionic Commando PS3/360 being released and they put a picture of nick Spencer hitting Deadpool into a rock (or a red soldier thatokks close to deadpool.) also a ton of info was leaked namely comic covers being replaced by marvel vs capcom covers. One of these covers is the venom series, the defenders, the groot solo comic, the rocket and groom one, doctor strang, and the guardians. There's more like two different Thor ones. If these are Hunt's to he characters I can definitely say I'm hyped for Venom/Groot/Starlord maybe?

Marvel

Ant-Man
Captain America
Captain Marvel
Doctor Strange
Gamora
Hawkeye
Hulk
Iron Man
Nova
Rocket/Groot
Spider-Man
Thanos
Thor
Ultron
Capcom

Arthur
Chris
Chun-Li

This is the supposed leak list from neo-gaf from a reputable source, and I've bolded the ones that are both surprising to see, and seriously capcom. JEDAH? I mean I love the character, but how much Edge can you have on one team. Dante/Jedah team is gonna be so much edge.

A little disappointed at the leak, but hey, my mains Spenser and Strider are there, and I'm cool with Firebrand, too. Surprised at no Wesker, and the Marvel side is not very thrilling for me, personally. Oh well, I'm not gonna be playing it at launch as is, so I'll be paying attention to the DLC plans.

Not gonna believe it 'til I see it, but having a Monster Hunter themed fighter makes sense. Curious whether they'd be one specific weapon style, several different styles/hunters, or one fighter who's a compilation of multiple weapons ala Dante. Will you unlock new outfits by (repeatedly) defeating other fighters to collect drops?

Also Palico Fighter as DLC or GTFO.

This couldn't be more uninspired.

A bunch of current, relevant superheroes that you can go into cinemas and see right now, at this very moment! versus a bunch of fossilized arcade characters no one has cared about in at least 15 years. Only four women, capcom side is like 90% returnees, Marvel side has none of the characters that were ultra popular to play in earlier installments of the series. No defenders, no inhumans, no x-men but hey at least you can play as Jeremy Renner. Not even a street fighter 5 character made the cut!

This reminds me of Kingdom Hearts where, at the time it started, it was a fresh and interesting collaboration but by now the japanese side of the partnership has languished so much, you wonder why the western side even needs them.

Thumbs down. Unless they put Sonson or Amingo in

Probably a leftover model from that PS3/360 era Darkstalkers they tried to make and never got off the ground.

As far as the leaks go, no Sentinel / Wolverine / Phoenix no sale for me.

Jedah is one of my favorite Darkstalkers characters in terms of visuals, so I'm okay with that, but of everyone in that series I'm honestly surprised that Huitzel didn't make the cut to make up for Sentinels absence.

I am going to put myself on the line...HIGH-STAKES...and go on record as saying I don't think the list is true, or at least it's incomplete and must be missing the good stuff. I like Jedah, and a Monster Hunter makes sense, but this is nevertheless just too boring a roster for me to believe they actually went with it. Building HYPE is a priority when choosing characters for big crossover games like these, and this just doesn't do that. It drops too many old favorites without bringing in any really exciting new fighters to make up for it.

Also, unless I'm missing or misunderstanding something, shouldn't Sigma be on that list? Or is he not because he's DLC or is he the [?] or what's going on there?

Also Firebrand is probably the character I'd actually want MOST to return, but having Arthur and him when so many other representatives are missing? Fishy.

Also, isn't this running on a SFV style system where they'll release 6 characters per "season" annually? I wouldn't put it past Marvel or Capcom to hold X-Men characters hostage at a premium.

That was my first thought/fear: that the initial roster would be fairly vanilla and generic, but all the big guns would be DLC. I know I would not be strong enough to resist the siren's call of a Sentinel.

That said, there are a couple of characters, like the Groot/RR team-up, that could play totally differently from expected. ... Or the tree is just part of one super move... could go either way.

LAST SECOND EDIT: Also, no Deadpool? I know he falls under the Fox umbrella, but that doesn't seem like something Marvel would do...

If they are withholding all the Good Stuff for season passes and such, I wonder if Capcom feels at all embarrassed about once again holding so much back behind a second paywall for a game that already costs full price. ARMS, meanwhile, has already promised more characters and content to keep being added even after the game comes out, and all its post-release content is going to be free! Yet noooo, Eventhubs stopped covering ARMS, because it's not a real fighting game.

Which is why I pronounce its name Even Thubs instead of Event Hubs. To hurt its feelings. Deeply.

I have not yet had occasion to ever say the name of this particular website out loud before, but when I do, that insult gun is ready and loaded full of shade.

ARMS may have free DLC, but it doesn't have Marvel or Capcom* characters as potential DLC. That's the edge Marvel vs Capcom Infinite has with its DLC scheme: The potential of fan favorites (Squirrel Girl, Howard the Duck) joining the roster or characters from previous games (B.B. Hood, Amingo) returning or characters who never should've been benched in the first place goddammit MCU (Wolverine, Deadpool) being used as an incentive to buy.

It basically goes like this...

ARMS: A new colorful weirdo on the roster? Neat!

MvC (fictional dramatization): HOLY SHIT THEY ADDED DAREDEVIL AND ELEKTRA AS DLC OH SHIT KINGPIN TOO HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!

* Mechanica only kinda looks like Tron Bonne.

And it's especially disappointing because the Marvel comics are really creative right now— introducing new characters, elevating obscure ones, and passing mantles around. This game could have tapped into that, not only giving us a really cool roster but also serving as a kind of document for this era, and instead it's eulogizing the MCU instead.

Yeah that leak is super disappointing. Whole lot of returning characters from 3. It would be nice for some Marvel characters I don't have any familiarity with. The only reason I'm even aware of Nova is because of MvC3, for example.

I feel ya, Yangus. My comic familiarity's more from 90s cartoons than actually reading comics, so I had a lot of "Who the fuck is that?" moments with the roster.
