This year the next instalment in the long running fighting game which pits Marvel superheroes against Capcom gaming icons has a release date.
Capcom announced this week their next instalment titled Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite will arrive September 19th on Playstation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
Marvel Vs Capcom will see characters like Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye – even Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy battling Capcom’s Chun-Li, Chris Redfield, Mega Man, Ryu and more.
As for the story? It’s about as silly as you can expect.
“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,” reads the press release. “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.”
These games are great because they help answer the age-old question: who would win in a fight between Spider-man and The Hulk? Well the answer just depends on which character you play the best!
Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite is available to pre-order on Steam
