Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is releasing on September 19 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Capcom announced today.
In the new trailer today you can get a preview of the cinematic Story Mode, which sees Marvel and Capcom heroes and villains battling together to defeat Ultron Sigma:
For the first time in franchise history, the Marvel and Capcom universes collide in a visually stunning and immersive cinematic Story Mode, as heroes and villains battle together to save their merged worlds from a sinister new threat, Ultron Sigma. A combination of the robotic foes known as Ultron from the Marvel Universe and Sigma from the Capcom Universe, this psychotic villain is obsessed with infecting all organic life with a cybernetic virus. History’s greatest gathering of warriors must now unite to fight back against Ultron Sigma and save their newly formed world.
Infinite will also include single-player Arcade, Training, and Mission modes, and you can expect “vast multiplayer offerings [that] will provide memorable experiences and infinite gameplay possibilities for players of all skill levels.”
In terms of characters, Capcom announced today that Ultron, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, Rocket Raccoon, Chun-Li, Strider Hiryu, and Chris Redfield are on the roster. They join Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Captain America, Ryu, Mega Man X, and Morrigan.
