Tomorrow sees the release of the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite video game, and now Capcom has revealed the final four characters, which sadly aren't any X-Men.
Capcom reveals Monster Hunter, Winter Soldier, Black Widow and Venom will be coming to Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite later this year.
Regarding the X-Men being a part of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, while the X-Men have been rumored, Capcom producers basically stated they won't be appearing in the game and made an excuse that Marvel fans don't remember the X-Men.
Yeah, sure (lol).
It's thought the real reason the X-Men aren't a part of the game is because of mandates put out by Marvel CEO/chairman Ike Perlmutter who has been at odds with Fox Studios over the film rights to the characters, so in an attempt to stick it to Fox, Perlmutter has removed the X-Men from being a part of games and merchandise, which probably Fox could care less about, but what really happens is the fans get screwed.
Here is the list of playable characters:
Mega Man X
Imagined and created through a shared vision between the two companies, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will feature free-form 2v2 team battles integrated into a wide variety of exciting and accessible single player modes and rich multiplayer content for new players and longtime fans alike. In addition to the compelling cinematic story experience, single player Arcade, Training and Mission modes plus vast multiplayer offerings will provide memorable experiences and infinite gameplay possibilities for players of all skill levels. The use of powerful, game-changing Infinity Stones further deepens the customized gameplay and allows players to equip and unleash elemental in-game powers, such as Reality, Time, Power and Space.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will simultaneously release on the PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One systems and Windows PC across North America and Europe on September 19, 2017.
