Mark your calendars! Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite will officially release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 19.
It will be available in three different editions. The Standard Edition ($59.99) will include just the base-game, but pre-ordering it will give owners access to the Warrior Thor and Evil Ryu costumes.
The Deluxe Edition ($89.99) will feature the aforementioned two costumes as well as the Gladiator Hulk and Mission Command X costumes. It will also give owners access to the game’s Character Pass, which will cover six post-release characters.
Finally, the Collector’s Edition ($199.99) will come with everything as well as four interlinking character dioramas of Megaman X, Chun-Li, Iron Man and Captain Marvel. The pricey edition will also include a set of special LED-powered Infinity Stones.
Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite will see heroes from both sides of the universe uniting to take down Ultron Sigma, a villain that has fused itself with “the most menacing mechanoids from the Marvel and Capcom universes.” The threat is imminent, as a new story trailer introduces fans to the setting and prepares themselves for the fight ahead.
While this is the first time Capcom has confirmed the existence of Ultron Sigma, the character was previously teased in the very first trailer of the game.
In addition to the story trailer, the developer has confirmed eight more characters that will be joining the game’s roster this year. They are Thor, Hawkeye, and the Incredible Hulk from the Avengers; Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy; Chun-Li from Street Fighter; Chris Redfield from Resident Evil; and Strider Hiryu from his manga. Ultron will also feature as a playable character. Incidentally, they are the same characters who were leaked earlier today.
Pre-orders for Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite are now open. More details will arrive at a later date, and we might be receiving another story trailer at E3 2017 in June.
