‘Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite’ New Story Trailer Confirmed Characters Doctor Strange, Black Panther & Thanos
The latest story trailer of the upcoming crossover fighting video game "Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite" confirms characters like Doctor Strange, Black Panther and Thanos. This second story trailer (watch video below) also shows additional characters from both camps like Dante, Arthur, Zero, Nova, Spencer and Gamora bringing the total number of playable characters to 24.
But there are rumors that the game developers will add four more characters, bringing the numbers to 28. However, only three were named, the one missing is possibly from the Capcom side. As posted by NeoGAF member Ryce, a trusted source of Marvel leaks, here are the names from Capcom: Arthur, Chris Redfield, Chun-Li, Dante, Firebrand, Jedah, Monster Hunter, Morrigan, Nemesis, Ryu, Spencer, Strider Hiryu, and X.
It is not known though whether X is the same as Mega Man X or Rockman X. Ryce added that the other Capcom character could be Frank West.
On the part of Marvel, here are the characters listed: Ant-Man, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Gamora, Hawkeye, Hulk, Iron Man, Nova, Rocket Raccoon, Spider-Man, Thanos, Thor and Ultron. It remains a mystery whether the character Rocket Raccoon will be modified into Rocket/Groot, Ryce suggested. There were rumors that Rocket Raccoon could be assisted by Groot, and such the name Rocket/Groot.
However, in an interview with VG24/7, "Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite" associate producer Peter Rosas explained that they will not feature the assist system since the game is already two-versus-two where can readily switch at any given time. Though the assist system was removed, switching characters can serve as offensive as well as defensive assist in a way.
"We thought it was daring taking the assist functionality away," Rosas suggested, "but because you can now switch at any given time and whatever action is inputted prior to the switch gets completed, characters can now be anything. They can be an assist, an offensive assist, a defensive assist. They can be whatever your mind comes up with."
So if what Ryce said is true, how will this Rocket/Groot character come to fruition? How does a redesigned character called Rocket/Groot sounds like?
