Earlier this week we found out that Monster Hunter would be one of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite‘s upcoming DLC fighters, but now we know how the warrior will play. Capcom released a gameplay video showing off her sick combos and special moves. Monster Hunter definitely looks like one of the most fun to play as characters in the game.

Here’s how Capcom describes the upcoming DLC fighter:

A monster hunter from Val Habar, the nomadic desert town that fused with Wakanda. Monster hunters are experts at tracking and taking down monsters using weapons and armor forged from monster scales and claws. Hunters typically go by their given name, but this legendary hunter simply goes by Monster Hunter. She has been appointed as Black Panther’s right hand, a new tradition established to create harmony in the newly-forced nation of Valkanda and strengthen bonds in the fight against Ultron Sigma.

For more on Capcom’s latest fighting game, check out our Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite review. Here’s a snippet of what I had to say:

Like many other Marvel vs. Capcom fans, I was slightly concerned about the character roster of Infinite. Despite not having missing some big names like Wolverine and losing some of my favorite characters in 3 (I miss you Phoenix Wright), I still found plenty to like about its 30 characters. New additions like Captain Marvel are a blast to learn, and I never felt like I was limited in my character selection. It’s a diverse roster filled with fun to play characters, and it’ll only get stronger when DLC characters like Black Panther and Monster Hunter get added in the future.

It ultimately doesn’t matter if you’re upset with the roster, because at the end of the day Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is a great way to spend a night with friends. The combat feels smooth, the depth is there for dedicated players, and it’s a much more feature-complete offering when compared to the launch version of Street Fighter V. There’s a ton here to like, and those who dismiss it will only be missing out on one of Capcom’s finest fighting games.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
