It appears as if the near-entirety of the Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite roster has been leaked, according to a recent post on NeoGAF. The poster in question is none other than Ryce, the same individual responsible for confirming the existence of the game prior to its reveal at PlayStation Experience 2016. As a result of the source's past track record, it's worth it for fans to at least take note of this supposed roster leak for fans of the series. With that said, readers should take the following news with a grain of salt.
As Ryce states, Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite will launch with a 28-character roster. Much like previous entries, both sides will be balanced in order to each include 14 fighters representing Marvel and Capcom, respectively. Those that would rather be surprised by future reveals – or simply avoid this report entirely – can turn back now, but the supposed roster (sans one Capcom rep) can be found after the image.
- Mega Man X
- Monster Hunter
- Strider Hiryu
- Captain America
- Captain Marvel
- Doctor Strange
- Iron Man
Ryce went on to acknowledge that he was unsure of who the final Capcom rep would be, but suggested that it will likely be someone like Frank West of Dead Rising fame. Not quite done there, however, Ryce also stated that Spider-Man villain Venom would be joining the fray as DLC alongside the previously announced downloadable Mega Man X villain, Sigma.
Many fans are disappointed with the final list of fighters for the game, but a blow was bound to come given the inclusion of a fleshed out story mode for Infinite. The promise of add-on content also ensures that more fan-favorite Marvel and Capcom fighters can be added in time, although whether or not Marvel will lighten up on its apparent boycott of Fantastic Four and X-Men characters is still up in the air.
Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite is set to arrive for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 19, 2017.
