A new trailer has recently surfaced for MvC:I confirming 4 new characters to the game. The newest trailer also includes the Infinity Surge and Infinity Storm for The Mind Stone. and some additional footage of Gamora. Hit the jump to see the trailer.
I really wished that Capcom would have included at least one new character in the trailer. I more or less expected all of these characters to make it into the game, well except Nemesis. While it is nice to finally get a confirmation on these characters, the most interesting part of the trailer for me came at the end.
The Mind Stone’s Infinity Surge seems to trap the opponent in a bubble for a moment and then resulting in a hard knockdown upon release.
It appears that The Mind Stone’s Infinity Storm ability will give their team maximum meter, great for teams that will be eating through meter.
Like all other Infinity Storm abilities, the background to the stage changes in correspondence with the Stone’s color.
There is one other interesting note that this trailer confirms. A while ago, there was a leak about MvC:I that stated the whole roster and some confirmed DLC characters. Frank West and Haggar were not on the list of confirmed characters. So, while I think the list does make a fair amount of sense, it is no longer set in stone that the leaked list is 100% accurate.
I am actually very glad that the list is not 100% true. This means that there is a possibility that Capcom could pull out some new and interesting characters like Jedah. As I mentioned on my thoughts about the list, I thought the leaked list was rather bare bones. While we still won’t be getting the classic X-Men characters, at least in the base game, this gives me hope to see new characters like Daredevil or The Punisher and bring back fun characters like Phoenix Wright.
