Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite

Great fighting, but a drab art style and disappointing roster of characters let the side down.

Here's our first look at Winter Soldier, Black Widow and Venom gameplay in Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite

Capcom's released a trailer showing off Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite DLC characters Winter Soldier, Black Widow and Venom for the first time.

The trio come hit the crossover fighting game on 5th December, Capcom said.

The video below shows off each character's level three supers, which are appropriately flashy. Fan-favourite Venom looks the coolest character to me, although his voice acting sounds off.

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite review

The arrival of a new Marvel vs. Capcom game should be an event. It should send shivers down the spine. It should spark fingertips a-plinking on the buttons of fight sticks. Infinite, though, does none of these things.

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite looks a lot better in the latest gameplay video

Jedah! Dormammu! Ghost Rider! Firebrand! Revive your teammate!

Capcom's put out a new video for upcoming fighting game Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite and I have to admit, the game looks a lot better than it has done in recent months.

The video, below, shows off Jedah, Ghost Rider, Dormammu and Firebrand, as well as a new Infinity Stone that looks like it'll bring some interesting new gameplay to the crossover series.

It's Jedah, though, who steals the show. The Darkstalkers villain has one of the best models in the game, cool voice acting and exciting moves. His ultimate attack sees a giant purple hand emerge from the floor, slam his opponent into the ground before crushing him into what looks like a giant 'sell your soul to the devil'-style contract. "I shall put your affairs in order," Jedah says, nonchalantly. Awesome!

Our first look at Jedah and Gamora gameplay in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

At the Evo fighting game tournament this weekend Capcom hosted an exhibition match for the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite - and during it we got our first look at gameplay for both Jedah and Gamora.

Gamora, from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, uses a combination of sci-fi guns and swords to do damage to her opponent. But it was the reveal of Jedah, who hails from Capcom's much-loved vampire-flavoured fighting game series Darkstalkers, that got the most attention from series fans.

Jedah first appeared in Darkstalkers 3 as the youngest of the three High nobles of Makai - even though he's over 6000 years old. He has a liquid body, which means he can change shape. He also uses his blood to create a rotating buzz saw.
