Marvel vs. Capcom fans are getting treated to a nice surprise on successive weekends, as Darkstalkers‘ Jedah was announced last week at Evo 2017, and SDCC 2017 featured three new character announcements. While the official trailer will go live tomorrow (we’ve got off-screen footage below), we now know that Spider-Man, Nemesis from Resident Evil, and Dead Rising‘s Frank West will appear in the game. That’ll definitely bolster the roster, which has been criticized by fans.

Check out footage of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite‘s Spider-Man reveal below:
