Default When's Mahvel? RIGHT NOW: Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite

Marvel 4, baybee. I don't like playing Vs. games but they're fun to watch, so this is nice. 2v2, gameplay coming tonight at Capcom Cup supposedly.

LETS GOOOOO

So, with that teaser's obvious sihlouette head + giant-chest-face with blue eyes, do we call them SigmaUltron, UltronSigma, Sigtron, Ultma, Sultron, Ultigma... man, these names don't mix well at all.

Details. Well, a bit, anyway. Sounds like it has a system similar to SF x Tekken's gems but we'll see how that goes. Gameplay clips coming...well, according to this tomorrow but according to Twitter earlier tonight after the Capcom Cup finals. I dunno. 2v2! NICEEEE

Upside, Carol Danvers. Down side, it's not the new-school buzzcut Carol Danvers. Ah well.

How retro, resurrecting the 2v2 from MvC and the Infinity Stones from MSH! And I'm stoked Captain Marvel was shown so early. I hope that there's a larger quantity of women combatants on their side this time. And X! About damn time!

Tune in to ESPN2 on Sunday, December 4th, during the Capcom Cup 2016 broadcast to see an extended gameplay trailer from Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.

So the big rumor was that there would be no X-Men involved. And of the first four characters introduced, one is a former X-Man (Ms. Marvel, particularly featuring some Binary powerlevels), and the other is X, man.

This is mostly a pet peeve of mine but let go of your compulsive need to give portmanteau names to pairs of characters.

It was less a rumor than a knee jerk reaction from terrible journalists speculating on the virtually no information available.

Does the PS4 UMvC3 have Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine? Remember that preorder DLC crap from last gen?

Also, it's not clear whether this is PS4 exclusive or not. Ordinarily, I'd say no, but after Street Fighter V, who can say? I at least care way more than SF5 (hopefully they don't screw this one up badly like they did SF5).

A) All DLC included in ULTIMATE
B) Neither are PS4 exclusive. ULTIMATE launches on PS4 today, with Xbox1 and PC versions in March of 2017; Infinite will come to PS4, X1 and PC sometime in 2017.

Focusing on the MCU probably means no X-Men

Hopefully at least Wolverine makes the cut

The "focus on MCU" thing was a rumor, y'all. A Mahvel without Doom or Mag fucking Neato is no Mahvel game at all.

Edit - The closing ceremony is at 10 PM PST; I imagine the MvC Infinite footage will be around then?

Ms. Marvel (now Captain Marvel) ain't exclusive to the X-Men though, and she sure as heck ain't exclusive to FOX's film deal. She appears as a support unit in Disney 2.0 and as DLC for the Marvel movie universe-focused LEGO Avengers, she had a cameo in the Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon (as the Marvel cartoons start to ignore superheroes FOX has) and Marvel Studios has a movie for her in the works, sometime eventually maybe.

I'ma not be convinced there's X-Men 'til we see Wolverine or Storm or Deadpool or whomever.

That said, if Neo Captain Marvel can get in the game without a movie to her name, I've got higher hopes of maybe seeing some baddies from Spider-Man's huge villainous roster as new or recurring fighters now. DocOckPlz DocOckPlz DocOckPlz DocOckPlz DocOckPlz

I suspect it was a true rumor. The Capcom website uses the term "Infinity Stone" which is unique to the MCU (they're Infinity Gems everywhere else) and the big new fighter in the reveal on the Marvel side is Captain Marvel who, hey, has an MCU movie in production. (In fact, I'd lay money that the reason she doesn't have the comic's distinctive hairdo is that this is more in line with her film appearance.) I hope to be wrong, but we'll see.

That was brief, and nothing new character wise. Apparently more will happen tomorrow?

Edit - Video (:25 in)

Game Informer has some info on the game here. Assists are out. Tagging is now instant (more like SFxT it would seem). X-Factor out for Infinity Stones, which can be chosen before battle. As for those X-men/Fantastic Four rumors and the game's story mode:

Quote:
When I asked them about the rumor that the game’s roster would not include as many (or any) characters from the X-Men or Fantastic Four series due film rights issues (the current film series for those franchises are owned by Fox and not Marvel Studios) and would instead favor characters already in the Marvel cinematic universe, Creative Director of Marvel Entertainment Bill Roseman didn’t tense up the way PR folks tend to when you ask them a difficult question. While Marvel wants to take a forward-thinking stance with the characters they include in the game, he wants to make sure fans of all of Marvel properties, including X-Men, were happy. “That heritage is not lost,” he told me. Not the straight answer I was looking for, but it left me hopeful about my chances of Berserker Barraging people as Wolverine next year.

Roseman and Executive Producer at Marvel Games Mike Jones also emphasized that they’re looking at this project the way they have all of their recent projects in games, film, and television (Jones brought up Insomniac’s upcoming Spider-Man game and their current run of well-regarded series on Netflix as a reference point). They want to make sure Infinite’s use of the Marvel license is well-earned, and mentioned the game will have a more expansive, cinematic story mode this time around. “We want to make sure this game is dripping with Marvel,” said Roseman.
