It’s been a busy morning for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Capcom not only dropped a brand new story trailer, but also laid out pre-order details and what fans can expect to find in the game’s various special editions.
There will be three editions for the game, which are the typical standard, deluxe, and collector’s editions. The standard edition will run the usual $59.99. The deluxe edition runs a little higher at $89.99, but will come with a Steelbook case, and includes the Gladiator Hulk and Command Mission X costumes. The deluxe edition for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will also include access to six post-launch characters, with Sigma being touted as the first to be released.
The collector’s edition will run much higher at $199.99, but it comes with a lot of extras. In addition to all of the perks that come with the deluxe edition, it will also come with four interlinking dioramas from TriForce of Iron Man, Chun-Li, Captain Marvel, and Mega Man X. Of course, those don’t compare to the LED-powered Infinity Stones replicas that are also included. All pre-orders, regardless of edition, will receive the Warrior Thor and Evil Ryu costumes.
Capcom also announced an official launch date of September 19, 2017. This falls in line with the game’s original release window of late 2017.
There’s a lot of Marvel vs. Capcom information to digest, but it’s likely created a great deal of hype for the upcoming fighter. This morning’s new story trailer showed us that Capcom is willing to try new things by introducing the series’ first combo character with Ultron Sigma, and it’s certainly an interesting experiment.
As detailed above, Sigma will be available as a single character in the future, as will Ultron. This makes two Mega Man X characters confirmed for the roster, which could indicate the X series is one of the aforementioned “dormant” franchises Capcom has tentative plans to revive.
Pre-orders begin today, so anyone who wants those nifty Infinite Stones should probably reserve early.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will release on September 19th, 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
