I’m so glad to be eating my words here. While I had worried about the art direction of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite (even going as far as nitpicking character size and the quasi-realism bringing it closer to Contest of Champions‘ art style), it was mainly because I had feared the new title would lose its famous coverage over the entire screen. While that fear has been put to bed for sure, I’m still a bit hesitant about the new HUD since we haven’t officially seen it in action.
But with this gameplay trailer revealing Level 3 supers from the new additions, more Infinity Stones in action, and if I’m not mistaken, the easier off-the-ground techniques found in the earlier Marvel vs. Capcom games, it definitely looks and plays like Marvel. Ultron looks friggin’ fantastic.
Now it’s just a matter of detailing the new tag system, button layouts, and whether or not combos will be as simplified as they were in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC September 19th.
