Rumor: Marvel vs. Capcom 4 Reveal Coming at PlayStation Experience, Launches in 2017

marvel-vs-capcom-3-11-28-16-1

While Capcom has their hands full supporting Street Fighter V on PC and PlayStation 4, a new rumor has pointed to them working on yet another fighting game sequel.

Recent anonymous “industry insiders” have been posting nebulous Tweets and NeoGAF posts (which we usually give zero credence to), however, Polygon is citing “multiple sources” that Marvel vs. Capcom 4 is real, and it’s coming very soon.

The sources claim the game will be revealed at this year’s PlayStation Experience, and that it will launch sometime next year, for consoles. That’s about all we have to go off of for now.

We’ll keep you guys posted.

    … How about putting Mega Man in it this time, guys?

  • True Goddess Reincarnation

    Disappointment hype

  • Ace

    =(

  • NukeA6

    Wasn’t this debunked?

  • Smug

    nah
    at this point we are just interested to see how much of a trainwreck it could be with current Marvel

  • Shinobu

    One half of Neogaf are basement dwelling keyboard warriors, the other half are literal PR schills pretending to be regular Joe’s.

  • Mr0303

    With Capcom’s recent track record with SFV and the last anaemic effort that was MvC3 I can’t get terribly excited.

    Plus Morrigan should never be covered up.

  • Mr0303
  • Uncle Ocelot

    With Current Year Marvel? No thanks.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I actually thought that was pretty funny when it was revealed.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I hope so.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Gotcha Force and Power Pack aren’t going to show so why do I care?

  • Tyrone Jackson

    Darkstalkers or CVS3, please. Ditch the Disney crap as it’ll only lead to the same BS as it did before.

  • Tyrone Jackson

    >censored Morrigan

    Holy FFFFFUUUUUUUUUU

  • Tyrone Jackson

    Everyone get hype for non-binary gender fluid black transvestite badger-kin Spiderperson!

    Oh, I forgot xhe also needs to be muslim.

  • s_fnx

    You’re a white male!

  • Audie Bakerson

    If it didn’t come at that time most people would have thought it so.

  • Smug
  • Uncle Ocelot

    One of the worst cases of bad timing in a while for sure. Mega Man fans were probably at their most bitter around then.

  • Mr0303

    As funny as kicking a homeless guy. This was downright cruel to Mega Man fans.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    It was was probably in the works before the other stuff happened, unless my memory is wrong. I was kind of mad at it, but I could see the funny side.

  • Nagato

    You forgot to specify the SJW cucks, as well as the handful of regular Joe’s pretending they’re “insiders~” who actually know stuff (either to get attention, or to create hype for their system of choice).

  • Shinobu

    Yeah that’s what I said.

  • Nagato

    True nuff, both technically fall within the keyboard warriors category.

  • Audie Bakerson

    I wish we had a wall like in the first page.

  • Nagato

    According to an SRK rumor it’ll be just MCU on the Marvel side… so no X-men or anything.

    I’d much rather have even a roster based on the current Marvel comics instead; I’d gladly take that overly political – but at least somewhat “inspired” – garbage over the utterly generic dreck that is the MCU.

    Never thought I’d say that…

  • Marvel vs Capcom 4: New Age of Social Justice

    All female characters in burkas to stop wymmin being objectified, cat-called, and to prevent rape culture

  • Jesus, that’s some really fucking cringeworthy stuff there

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Only a matter of time now.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Come on Disney, if you do one good thing with your life, quash these rumors and if it’s happening, shut the thing down!!

  • Minuteworld92

    shit modern capcom and even shittier modern marvel. what can go wrong?

    I’ll just wait for rpcs3 or xenia and play it on that or just buy 3 for my used ps3.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I dunno, neither option is great but I’d rather not have Whor and Black 16 year old Iron Woman… no Wolverine though…

    Honestly I want neither and for this to just be a rumour.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    With the sheer incompetence of Capcom and Marvel combined, I imagine not long after the booting of the disk, it’ll implode into a black hole and with so many sheep buying it up, you won’t have to worry about being stretched to death, just ripped apart by all the black holes forming in your neighborhood.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Hopefully with California on the other side with the rest of America ignoring it.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Knowing Capcom, they will but if it’s not the new cartoon version, the roster is gonna be appalling.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Rejoice in Marvel having forgotten about them.
    Always a chance of Molly Hayes vs. Tron Bonne though.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Oh I wish we were that lucky. Apparently they killed off Alex recently.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Oh yeah, only one they kept bothering with after the one guy stopped them relaunching the Powerpack comics while making Juile Bi. Both those were started right before they really started going down hill unless they threw Alex on something else other than the Future Foundation while I wasn’t looking.

  • Luis Diaz

    After the SFV fiasco, I’m good. Besides, if the rumors are true that the Marvel roster is gonna be MCU only, that’ll be pretty lame.

  • Kessek

    Forever alone…sigh.

  • Kiryu

    Many people are excited for Iron Woman,Whor,Nazi Cap America,Muslim Girl and co.

  • Please no. After SFV just no.

  • Audie Bakerson

    At least the various mini-series they made were pretty cute (all with external talent in case you needed more proof modern Marvel is just that bad)

  • Josh

    Skullgirl please go

  • Josh

    Both companies are on thin ice with their fans. SF5 sold quite poorly and if they keep doing this kind of shit then they’ll never have another successful title again.

    You’d better give the fans exactly what they want this time you idiots. More returning characters, less idiotic gimmicks like X-Factor. More main characters and less nobodies. I want Juggernaut, She-Hulk, Venom, Ms. Marvel (CAROL DANVERS, NOT KAMALA), Megaman X, Sigma, Tessa, and a Power Stone rep. And for god’s sake you had BETTER stay away from all the SJW remake characters like Fem-Thor, black female Iron Man and fat retard Squirrel Girl. I am absolutely confident that you will completely fuck this up, you’d better prove me wrong.

  • Travis Touchdown

    Wasn’t MvC3 a massive disappointment?

    I’m not familiar with Capcom fighters, sorry. But after Street Fighter V, I don’t see why ANYONE is getting excited about the possibility.

  • Maria Maasaa

    Hoping for a Breath of Fire character this time

  • sanic

    Marvel vs capcom vs knuckles

  • bob

    Lol they’re kidding right? We all know what going to happen, after with SFV. Dammit Capcom you haven’t learned shit.

  • Shinobu

    If they are seriously gonna inject the roster with MCU characters with no X-Men then wew laddy~

  • Godmars

    After the way Capcom sacrificed SFV’s general consumer/gamer value to get it out in time for pro-gaming, are people really going to give them another chance?

  • Tyrone Jackson

    Unfortunately that’s 100% Disney’s call. Whatever characters they want to peddle for upcoming movies would be the ones on the roster. That’s how it was with MVC3.

  • 2501

    As long as Ono isn’t involved I think it will be good. I like MvC3, its certainly a better looking game than SFV.

  • PenguinPlayer

    Can’t wait for another game that releases DLC characters that when the license expires disappear forever from the PSN, along with the digital copies of the game.

    I don’t play fighting games much, but that’s complete bullshit, good thing my friend that likes it got a physical copy of Ultimate MvC3.

  • Bitterbear

    All of the female characters are going to be retconned into being overpowered, plus-sized, genderfluid, blacktinarabs with one-button 10-hit combos.

  • Josh

    As long as the politicized freak show that’s going on in the comics doesn’t happen in this game, we’re golden.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    It could be used as a testing ground for nuclear weapons.

  • Evja

    Hail Insyde

  • Luis Diaz

    After the SFV fiasco, I’m good. Besides, if the rumors are true that the Marvel roster is gonna be M

  • D4rkZ3r0

    How about another SNK and Capcom collaboration game instead of something that will not even be half as good as MvC:2, you greedy, SJW pandering, faggots?!

  • Didney Worl

    Replacement theory in full effect.

  • NukeA6

    And no X-Men.

  • NukeA6

    Geez, and I thought the feminist Thor shit was bad. Nice to know I haven’t a single cent on Marvel. With the propaganda they’re releasing, I’m gonna watch their movies via bootlegs.

  • NukeA6

    MCU characters would be a lot better than the SJWvengers. At least you’d still have a real Thor and Hulk.

  • Wonderkarp

    rumor has it its the movie avengers. so no x-men.
    No thanks.
    and if you are going to do movie avengers, might as well do movie street fighter

  • Master Bating
  • Neojames82

    Super no thank you.

  • Neojames82

    Let me guess, this was created right after Trump won the election right?

  • Neojames82

    God that is an ugly ass woman…

    This is the only squirrel girl for me.

  • Smug

    No I believe this comic issue was released before the election day, just like how Trump is sort-of a MODOK in an alternate dimension (which appeared also during this year), or Red Skull being a nationalist (before strapping bombs into his followers because we cant have readers agreeing with villains, can we?). DC is doing pretty bad too in the same department of fucking around with established characters.

  • Neojames82

    Yeah comic books in general are fucking terrible now. I am very glad that I am not a hardcore comic fan these days because what started with the gaming industry a few years back is now bleeding into the comic and to a lesser extent the board gaming community. Hopefully all this shit will die down in the next few years, which I feel is going to start happening in 2017.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Better to let them slowly die than to allow them the honor and humility of a quick one.

  • ElKonsolero

    It was at least for me (and it seems many others). They had less characters than in MvC2 and thought it was intelligent to change the controlls completly (not your usual Streetfighter ones). Also still no freaking Rival Schools characters which the pathetic excuse of “They would be to similar to the “Hadouken” Streetfighter chars” when the only real “Hadouken” char of this game was Batsu (and Kyo to some extend). They could´ve put in literally anyone but Batsu to not clash with the SF Chars like Shoma, Roberto, Natsume, Edge, Daigo, Hyo, Boman, Tiffany etc.

    Also the plot made no goddamn sense. I don´t expect much from Fighting game plots but come on, the villians of both universes align themselves with Galactus, you know the guy who eats worlds and will likely do the same with both worlds. Why the fuck would Doctor Doom and Magneto both very intelligent villains align themselves with Galactus to take over both worlds?

  • Evja

    Reminder that people will pay for a game that will have DmC Donte in it, hobo Ryu, female Iron Woman who don’t need no man, probably no Megaman, Captain Americanazi, etc and it will be shilled into tournaments and shit and there’s nothing we can do about it.

  • Zero Eternity

    What the fuck did I just read.

    I drew a picture of current year marvel. Modaak as president will make Marvel great again.

  • tccboss

    Oh man imagine Morrigan on espn.

  • VLOCKUP

    Current Year Marvel? Please to me as I don’t follow Marvel stuff, just watching the movies.

    I do remember female Thor but that’s all I heard of.

  • buddyluv324

    Sadly, that seems to be the case. Some people just don’t learn.

  • Slizzl

    Hopefully this means the removed DLC and games will return.
    I never got a chance to get those.
