Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite is one of the oldest fighting game franchises on the market. It’s hard to believe that one of the oldest fighting games by Capcom is one of the most relevant titles coming out soon. Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite is a game famous for its wide roster and epic battles that burst out from the screens.
Unlike Street Fighter V, Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite does have a story mode which though looks pretty basic in terms of narrative but does offer enough to provide a reasonable single player experience. Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite brings back a lot of old features that fans have been wanting to make a return for a while now. One such feature is the tag team battles.
The 2v2 tag team battles have received a fair share of work put into them to make them more cooperative and Capcom has added in a variety of new moves and new range of abilities to mix in with their normal play style. Overall, the game feels like good old Marvel Vs. Capcom games which is something we can all appreciate. Looking at the new footage of the game, Capcom has also fixed some of the most glaring issues we found in the game’s demo.
Going Back To The Basics
Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite has embraced back to the basics approach to help newcomers get used to the game more easily. Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite has definitely prioritized accessibility and ease of play with a control scheme that focused towards console gamers rather than arcade sticks. There are a total of 4 attack buttons, 2 for kicks and 2 for punches, and buttons for tag and infinity gem ability.
Players can easily execute combos with basic button patterns whereas seasoned players can execute more complex combos. In a similar way, Supers can be executed with simple button commands such as pressing both Punch keys at the same time whereas more powerful supers require more complex button input.
A Massive Roster & Pre-Order Bonus Costumes
Even though Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite has a massive roster it falls flat compared to the previous iterations of games. Unlike previous Marvel Vs. Capcom games, Infinite has no X-men characters among many other fan favorites which has left many fans left questioning motives to leave out characters from one of the biggest franchises. One of the reasons for this might that Capcom is following the Street Fighter V models which is seasonally adding more characters to the game to keep it fresh and up to date rather than developing a new game altogether.
On the other hand, those that pre-order Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite will be receiving four new costumes sets Warrior Thor, Evil Ryu, Gladiator Hulk, and Command Mission X. However, the costumes you get will depend on which version of the game you pre-ordered.
- Black Panther
- Captain America
- Captain Marvel
- Ghost Rider
- Doctor Strange
- Iron Man
- Rocket Raccoon
- Frank West
- Strider Hiryu
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 19.
