Now here is a big surprise. Marvel and Capcom have announced that both Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will be coming to the PC in 2017.
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is currently planned for a March 2017 release, while Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite will be released later in 2017.
Mike Jones, Executive Producer at Marvel Entertainment, said:
“For the last two decades, Marvel vs. Capcom has been one of the most celebrated franchises among fans. To deliver on that legacy, we’ve worked closely with Capcom to create a game that honors the heritage of the series and combines Marvel’s unique brand of storytelling with Capcom’s world-class gameplay. We’re raising the bar with Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite and are excited for players to get their hands on it next year.”
Imagined and created through a shared vision between the two companies, MARVEL VS. CAPCOM: INFINITE will feature a variety of exciting and accessible single player modes and rich multi-player content for new players and longtime fans alike. In addition to single player Arcade, Training, and Mission modes, a visually stunning and immersive cinematic Story Mode will put players at the center of both universes as they battle for survival against a sinister new threat.
Michael Evans, Director of Production for Capcom, added:
“It was deeply inspiring for our development team to join forces again with Marvel and we can’t wait for our fans to experience the benefits of that collaboration first hand. With Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, our goal is to provide memorable experiences and infinite gameplay possibilities for players of all skill levels.”
MARVEL VS. CAPCOM: INFINITE is being built to highlight a combination of iconic and fan favorite characters and stages from both universes, including Captain Marvel and Iron Man from the Marvel side, and Ryu and Mega Man X from Capcom. More characters, stages, modes and features will be revealed in the coming months.
On the other hand, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will include a new gallery mode, and will be packed with all previous DLC.
