Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was revealed during yesterday’s Keynote address at this year’s PSX, but now there’s also a gameplay trailer that shows how the game looks and feels in action.
The new trailer dropped during last night’s Capcom Cup tournament for Street Fighter V and is all centered around the Infinity Stones, the powerful gems from the Marvel universe that are supposed to make their users god-like.
In it, Ryu and Mega Man X face-off against Iron Man and Captain Marvel, each demonstrating some special combos as well as some of the Infinite Stones themselves. For instance, Captain Marvel has the time stone, which gives her the ability to dodge attacks, while Ryu has the power stone, which bathes him in a pink light and makes his punches even punchier.
From this short clip, the game seems to have moved more in the direction of the Street Fighter series than previous Marvel vs. Capcom games, which have tended to overflow with frenzied attack animations. The fighting system itself remains more mysterious. The matches in the game are fought 2v2 and there won’t be “assists” like in previous games, where characters could be called on-screen to deliver extra attacks.
Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is due out sometime late next year on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
