As a huge fan of the Marvel vs. Capcom series, I am really excited for today’s news. Today, Capcom announced that Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite will release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC in North America on September 19, 2017!
The story, according to the press release, pits heroes and villains together to save their merged worlds from a sinister new threat, Ultron Sigma. A combination of the robotic foes known as Ultron from the Marvel Universe and Sigma from the Capcom Universe, this psychotic villain is obsessed with infecting all organic life with a cybernetic virus. History’s greatest gathering of warriors must now unite to fight back against Ultron Sigma and save their newly formed world.
