Comic-Con is usually the place for a game like Marvel vs Capcaom: Infinite to shine, and it can do so if it includes the words “spider” and “man” together anywhere in a sentence. Luckily, the web-slinger has decided to show up in the game, to the relief of Marvel fans all around the world, and he is joined by Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy from the Marvel side in this latest roster update.
On the Capcom side, Dead Rising’s Frank West, Resident Evil’s Nemesis, and Final Fight’s Mike Haggar all got name dropped for their inclusion in the game.
The new trailer, seen below, also introduces the Mind Stone mechanic, which Capcom describes like this:
The Mind Stone is the fifth announced Infinity Stone for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. This stone brings a command grab type of attack to its wielder in the air and on the ground. Upon landing a successful Infinity Surge attack, the opponent will fall to the ground and wake up in a daze, giving the wielder plenty of time to set up their next attack. Activating the Infinity Storm gives players a boost in hyper gauge regeneration. Hyper gauge will naturally increase without performing any additional actions, letting players build up their powerful super attacks much faster.
Man, this is starting to give me Power Stone flashbacks. Way to tool the Infinity Stones into the gameplay, Capcom. Marvel vs Capcom Infinite will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2017.
