We already know that Capcom has some pretty good downloadable content plans for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, with names that include Black Widow, the Winter Soldier and Venom, among others. But we haven’t really had a good look these characters in the game, aside from some glimpses of Black Panther.
However, some dataminers for the game have managed to come up with some pretty good details. EventHubs recently posted a number of concept pics for these fighters in Infinite, and while the artwork isn’t official by Capcom (more than likely it’s waiting for its official New York Comic Con reveal later this week), they look pretty fantastic thus far.
Initially posted by Futcharist in Reddit, this character art was reportedly mined from the PC version of the game. But, as always with these reports, take them with a grain of salt until Capcom confirms them. Let’s see what these concept profiles have to offer!
First up is Venom, and, as you can see, he’s definitely a bulky type in the game, just as he was back in Marvel vs. Capcom 2. That means his move set is likely to be the same it was in the previous games, with a number of techniques based around his symbiote skin, and his Venom Factor likely to be re-introduced as his super. He’s also looking to get a bit more range this time around, based on the length of his arms and his bulky legs, which should make him a good all-around fighter in the long run.
Next up is Sigma, before he joined up with Ultron to create the devastating villain Sigma Ultron in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. As you can see, he’s a pretty big character in his own right, and he looks to have some strength within his armor, as well as a lightsaber-style sword that can probably deliver a few extra hits as well. He looks to be a pretty good well-rounded character, and once he’s included in the game, we can’t help but wonder – who would win in a fight, him or Ultron? Guess we’ll find out in just a few months.
Next up is Black Panther, and his early conceptual photos look similar to his build in the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite campaign, though we can’t help but think it’s slightly slimmed down. Nevertheless, he looks quite dangerous, with his clawed hands and his magnificently built body armor. Something tells us that he’ll be capable of a number of slash attacks (similar to Wolverine, perhaps?) as well as some special techniques that will take advantage of his Wakandan technology. Whatever the case, he’s bound to become a fan favorite.
It looks like for the design of the Winter Soldier character, Capcom is definitely taking notes from the version that appears in the Captain America films, though the face is slightly different from Sebastian Stan’s, with more of a younger look. Regardless, he should have a number of great moves to his credit, including his super-powered arm, which should not only be good for a few offensive attacks, but also defense as well, in case a character is trying to hit him with a projectile. We’ll have to see how well he scraps with Captain America when he eventually arrives.
Finally, there’s the femme fatale herself. Like Winter Soldier, her character is loosely based around the cinematic version, but with slightly different looks than Scarlett Johanssen. Her general design is still the same though, and she’ll have a number of weapons to use to her advantage, like her charged-up baton and a pair of firearms that should make some fights interesting from a distance. As far as her super techniques go, it’s still too soon to tell, but her agility and speed will no doubt come in handy.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
