Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Announced With Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Remaster

By Kelly Packard,
Fans of the Marvel vs. Capcom series have to wait years between games, but when the crossovers come out, they're usually worth it. Players will soon be putting all of that waiting behind them because today Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was revealed alongside a current-gen version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

The upcoming fighter and the remaster, were announced at the PlayStation Experience conference today. It has been just over five years since a Marvel vs. Capcom entry, when the original Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 launched for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 generation of consoles.

While it had been heavily rumored that Infinite would be revealed at today's conference, which turned out to be true, speculation has also been circulating the web that this will be the first Marvel vs. Capcom game to not include the X-Men fighters, and will instead focus on Marvel superheroes that are en vogue in today's world, like the Guardians of the Galaxy team. Whether or not this is true remains to be seen. Gameplay of Infinite will be shown off during tonight's Street Fighter V tournament, which could be a good time to confirm or dismiss these rumors.

The reboot of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is particularly exciting to hardcore fans since Capcom lost their license to the Marvel entities several years ago. This resulted in them being unable to release balance patches for the game as well as both Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 being removed from digital marketplaces. The game will be receiving PlayStation exclusivity for the time being and will be available on the PlayStation 4 today, while making its way to other platforms in March. The updated version will have these balance adjustments that were originally unable to be made.
