Marvel Versus Capcom finally has a new title coming and it's prefixed with 'Infinite'. Fans went wild during the PlayStation Experience event as Marvel VS Capcom: Infinite was showcased along with the day's awesome game reveals. The trailer is all about Mega Man and Iron Man battling it out, with a bit of help from friends coming from both sides.
At the PSX held in California, Capcom revealed the first trailer for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, the latest title in the long-running fighting game cross-over series. Capcom also has announced that Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be re-released on the PS4, and Xbox One later on, in a form of digital download, no word on hard copies being sold has been detailed to the audience. The speculation on Marvel VS Capcom 4 has finally ended with the introduction of Marvel VS Capcom Infinite.
Duel Between Iron Man and Mega Man in Marvel VS Capcom Infinite
As the trailer for Marvel VS Capcom: Infinite opens, Mega Man enters the scene, going towards what seems to be an infinity stone. The blue blaster got interfered by Tony Stark, a.k.a Iron Man, by blasting away one of his Iron Man blaster thingies. Ryu then enters the scene picking up poor Mega Man. Both Capcom figures turned their heads upwards just to realize Iron Man is about to blast them away.
Ryu then charges to beat up Iron Man when Ms. Marvel enters the arena, equalizing the battleground. Ultimately, the 2 pairs from Marvel and Capcom run toward each ready to engage in brutal combat, and the scene is cut. Ultron also seems to be in Marvel VS Capcom: Infinite too as he appears right after the clash scene, fading in and out.
I was impressed by Marvel VS Capcom: Infinite's trailer as it perfectly matched Iron Man and Mega Man. Both men bound by their high-tech suits, figuring out who would win is very difficult. Both suits and men inside them have their own pros and cons. Tony Stark may be a genius but the boy inside Mega Man has a huge heart who never gives up.
Ultimately, it will be up to the one holding the controller and/or the AI controlling the other fighter to decide who would win. So, at this point, let's just say the fans are the true winners during the reveal of Marvel VS Capcom: Infinite, with all the crazy cheering and stuff.
The cross-over fighter, Marvel VS Capcom, was originally rolled out in arcades. The game series feature swapping of two characters while in ongoing battle - sort of a tag team matchup in pro wrestling, and since it became popular, the feature that has been adapted on other fighters as well. Also, the game gathered enough fame to be re-released on home consoles.
Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 may have turned 5 years old but it is still being played in this year's Evolution Championship fighting game competition in Las Vegas. In the said event, top gamers worldwide gather to test who will be the year's ultimate champion. This year, the title was bagged by Christopher Gonzalez who goes by the player name: "NYChrisG".
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is already available and will set you back $25 via the PlayStation Network. Xbox Live will follow next year by March. Keep it here, keep gaming.
