A new trailer was recently shown at E3, showing off the story mode for MvC:I. Hit the jump to see. Be sure to check out the new gameplay trailer as well!
Thanos on the good side? Omeergoddddd.
Here are some of my thoughts about the trailer.
First off, the game still needs to have its graphics improved.
Second, there are a fair amount of new characters revealed in this trailer. I made a list of all the new characters that, while not all are 100% confirmed to be playable, are at least in the story mode of the game.
- Arthur (confirmed)
- Spencer (confirmed)
- Thanos (confirmed)
- Zero (confirmed)
- Black Panther (confirmed DLC)
- Nova (confirmed)
- Dante (confirmed)
I would like to note that Zero is playable, and Black Panther as DLC, so the previous leak about the game’s roster is at least partially false.
I really hope that MvC:I does not pull what MKX did and have a character like Baraka in the story mode but not have him playable. That is just not cool, especially considering how much Baraka had been in the franchise before and don’t give me that crap the he dies in the story, so does Mileena.
Lastly, an unfortunate implication from the trailer is that it is becoming more and more unlikely that we will be seeing any X-Men characters in the base game.
For those unaware, the X-men have been a staple in the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise. The franchise even started out as just X-men vs. Street Fighter and didn’t become Marvel vs. Capcom until the third iteration of the game. It is pretty disappointing that they couldn’t get into the base game.
What are your thoughts about the new trailer? Sound off below.
