Capcom promised last week that they would reveal more about Jedah, Dormammu, Firebrand, and Ghost Rider, and this latest gameplay trailer does just that. Gameplay Trailer #5 shows off the moves of these four fighters, and well… most of them like fire.  These fighters will be available in Infinite at launch.

If you missed it, Capcom revealed more about the game’s modes last week:

Offline Modes & Features

Now that I’ve had another chance to learn the systems in place, and most importantly change my mindset, I actually have had a lot of fun playing Infinite. It’s definitely a very different experience from Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but since that game is available on PlayStation 4 already, I’m glad to be getting something different. Gameplay revolves less about calling in partners for assists, and instead feels much more like Street Fighter X Tekken from a tactical standpoint. That isn’t a bad thing in of itself, and I feel like more people will appreciate the intricacies of the action once they let go that this isn’t Marvel vs. Capcom 4.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will release September 19 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
