It wasn't that long ago that we got a reportedly leaked roster for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite that featured the likes of Jedah (from Darkstalkers), Ant-Man and Black Panther, even though Capcom didn't confirm any of them. But now a new one has emerged, with some interesting new wrinkles – namely, the X-Men and Fantastic Four.

The leak was initially posted on Reddit by a user named Rikurikumore, who noted that not only will additional characters be included in the roster, but there will also be elaborate seasonal plans for DLC content, and it appears to be coming in packs.

This seasonal DLC, according to the details, indicate that we could see themed battles, like the Fantastic Four versus the cast of Darkstalkers, as well as the classic match-up of X-Men versus Street Fighter – similar to the older arcade games we saw in the late 90's and early 2000's. (Yes, there was actually an ­X-Men vs. Street Fighter arcade game. Go look it up.)

The Fantastic Four/Darkstalkers pack is noted to include eight different characters, including Doctor Doom, Silver Surfer, Super-Skrull, Felicia and Talbain (a werewolf) to name a few, while the X-Men/Street Fighter pack could include Wolverine, Cyclops and Deadpool on the Marvel side, as well as new combatants from Street Fighter.

As for the main roster, there are a few notable additions in the leak, like Captain Commando (a favorite in older games) and Venom (as DLC, as previously mentioned). There's also Doctor Octopus, Asura (from Asura's Wrath) and more. Check the full lists below:


  • Mega Man X
  • Ryu
  • Chris
  • Morrigan
  • Chun-Li
  • Strider Hiryu

  • Songbird
  • Ms. Marvel

Now, as we've reminded you before, it's best to take this rumor with a grain of salt. This is by no means confirmed by Capcom yet, though, with E3 coming next week, it could be revealing these plans. Keep those fingers crossed!
