    You forgot it’s coming to Xbone and Steam, and that UMvC3 will also come to them in March.

  • Mr0303

    The trailer lacks any X-men characters, so this my confirm the MCU characters rumour.

  • Wonder if they’re going to use the SJW Marvel designs?

  • Minuteworld92

    now with all the post marvel garbage. I can’t wait to see squirrel girl in this.

    also the crowd sounds like baboons. not being racist, just sayin.

  • Minuteworld92

    3’s coming to pc? YEAH

    so if this one’s shit because modern marvel, I can play the actual good one.

  • KissDisqus
  • sAy_YaS

    whaaaaaaaaaaaaa??????????

  • KissDisqus

    they might still be able to hash something out with fox granted I think marvel wants to replace the x-men with the inhumans.

  • s_fnx

    Source about the 3rd one coming to PC?

  • Mr0303

    Maybe these characters will be part of the 2018 season pass knowing Capcom.

  • James

    Everyone bitching about that instead of being hyped is just absurd. Carol’s design alone shows that everything will look very close to the movies, so they’re not going to be drawing from the modern era of Marvel comics, one of the lowest selling eras for them in forever. Only Marvel NOW crap going to make it in is stuff that was already going to get into a movie, which isn’t much of it. So don’t hold your breath for Jane Thor. Falcon will probably be in and get his Cap costume as an unlock/dlc, but he won’t have a shield moveset because he new has the shield in the movies. Everyone is letting politics keep them from just enjoying stuff these days.

  • Grey

    Hope we get a Breath of Fire character in the roster at long last.

  • Oh this is going to suck big time.

  • Smug

    “everything will look very close to the movies”
    pls no

    “Everyone is letting politics keep them from just enjoying stuff these days.”
    Because those same politics trashed the hobbies in question

  • Smug
  • Brandon Wolfley

    Yea, it has Iron Man. Not gonna lie, I was worried it was gonna exclude Iron Man for that new Iron Heart thing.

  • The people who “bitch” about it know how much of an utter cancer SJWs and feminists are to the video games industry. Not only that, but they’ve also infested virtually all other forms of entertainment media.

    If this kind of thing doesn’t bother you, then great, all the power to you. Just go and enjoy your games and ignore the people who bring the issue up.

    But I need to tell you that when people ignore the injection of SJW politics, it allows them to get away with it. The more people ignore and keep silent about it, they more cancer they can inject. If this keeps on happening, eventually the cancer becomes the norm. And this is when it kills the media dead as a form of entertainment.

    To SJWs, silence is compliance.

  • Nagato

    Can’t blame them for missing out on that; unlike past years, Sony went out of there way to obfuscate the existence of the shown games on other platforms.

  • Dewey Defeats Truman

    “the actual good one” and MvC3 does not compute. Surely you meant 2.

  • Minuteworld92

    anyone think mickey mouse will be a fighter since disney owns marvel? megaman vs mickey.

    I’m sure someone can mod him in.

  • James

    Do you want politics OUT OF GAMES, or do you just want to keep them in if they suit you? Because one makes sense, and the other is the opinion of a hypocrite. SJWs are hypocrites, so being a hypocrite back at them doesn’t fix gaming.

  • James

    That character will barely last the year. They didn’t even have the nerve to really kill Tony, he’s RIGHT THERE as an AI in the book.

  • ActivistZero

    Considering that they are presumably focusing on the MCU, I’d be more suprised if they DID’NT include Tony

  • James

    They don’t need to consult Fox AT ALL to add the characters. Marvel just doesn’t want to give free promotion to a rival studio’s movies, when they can fill the character slots up entirely with ones that will be in their movies and shows. It would be nice to have the X-Men and Dr. Doom in, but Marvel probably will just focus on characters they’ll be making the most money off of.

  • Brandon Wolfley

    Oh, I missed the MCU thing. So yea, real Captain America too.

  • ActivistZero

    And he won’t be a nazi

  • KissDisqus

    Ah thanks for the clarification. Kind of petty of them to do that. They’re killing mutants off with terraria mist or some shit now right? Don’t follow comics much anymore but that’s the last I really read up on before just steering away from comics. I think they sort of put FF in a corner too in comics

  • Smug

    I’m speaking about politics (and morals) that dont make an ounce of logic and common sense, which is generally anything related to cultural marxism and the left

    >racial diversity and multiculturalism is great! but this should be done only in white countries
    >we should celebrate this diversity because we are all the same
    and that’s just an example

  • OldPalpy

    That’s how it was with Marvel Legends until this year. Also other current Marvel games like those on mobile and that Heroes on PC have plenty of X-Men and FF characters so locking them out of MVC would be beyond idiotic.

  • James

    It’s VERY petty stuff. The exec in charge of the comics, Ike Perlmutter, was said to have “torn Fantastic Four posters of the office walls” due to his childish anger at Fox. The writers and editors had to fight hard to simply sideline the FF, and not have to KILL THEM OFF. The only reason I think Marvel Studios has had better dealings with Sony and Fox lately is because they specifically made it so Perlmutter has no say in the movie side of things. But he’s still making sure that they get little exposure in the comics. And the sad thing is that Inhumans are interesting in small does, but month after month they pale in comparison to mutants in every way.

  • OldPalpy

    Boy am I happy about never giving a shit about ongoing Marvel books.

  • James

    So you’re saying you WOULD support a political agenda in gaming if it was right leaning. That’s fine, it just makes you a hypocrite. If you’re comfortable with that, whatever.

  • Smug

    which part of “logic and common sense” didnt you understand?

  • James

    Naw, go read some stuff from the 80s and 90s. There were good times, they’re just all in the distant past. These days they have an event change the status quo every year, and characters are horribly defined. Back then a character could be in several different books, with different writers, and still feel consistent. This is because Marvel used to have real editors.

  • OldPalpy

    Oh that’s what I do it’s very easy to ignore them when there’s a metric fuckton of good reads from that era.

  • OldPalpy

    The amount of DLC costumes they can get out of X will make Capcom wonder why snubbed him last time.

  • sanic

    No “and knuckles”
    no buy

  • Smug
  • Tyrone Jackson

    Or maybe we just want games to be like how they were for like 35 years before all the Twitter outrage by nu-gamers.

    Nobody wanted “right leaning” politics in Mario 3 or Final Fantasy 6, we just never wanted garbage-ass black-tranny-lesbian-fight-the-White-man characters because the projections, preaching, and virtue signaling makes any game completely unbearable.

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    Wow, Carol Danvers doesn’t look ugly as shit like she does in the comics.

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    Captain Marvel looks terrible in the comics now with super short hair.

  • Smug

    apparently according to him being against leftist bullshit means you absolutely want right-leaning politics

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    People would be pissed.

  • ElKonsolero

    Well let´s see if they put a Rival Schools or an Onimusha character in this. My prediction: NOPE!
    Might buy it if it controls again like SF and not that bizarre thing whatever they tried with MvC3.

  • Eighto

    So what’s the next iteration going to be called? Infinity Plus One?

  • Brandon Wolfley

    Yeah, because that’s stopped Marvel from doing dumb things in the past.

  • 2501

    Well… that’s a pretty underwhelming CG trailer. I hope the in-game visuals don’t look like that.

  • CRES

    You forgot to put the ultimate instant kill move “Ask about my Feminist Agenda.” The moment you use that move your opponent will lose the entire match and have to listen to your character talk about White Privilege and how men are oppressing everyone.

  • CRES

    The moment you realize that this is the closest Capcom is going to acknowledge Mega Man for years.

    Now Mega Man fans will know what it’s like to be a Dark Stalker fan.

  • James

    Now that sounds reasonable. I’d rather the absurd modern focus on politics, left or right, would die down and go away. Both sides are filled with perpetually offended fanatics who see everything as some sort of attack against their precious belief system, instead of just a game. So far I have no reason to believe MvC4 will be a propaganda train like some of the modern comics. It’ll probably be a fairly non-offensive (to anyone) game built off the themes and characters from the movies and shows. Hopefully with some really good fanservice from Capcom.

  • Loli de 42 Anos – the Return

    okay… the fact that this will actually get a real story mode got me intrigued.

  • Audie Bakerson

    I doubt they’ll include anyone I want (Katie/rest of Power Pack, Molly, Gotcha Force) so meh.

  • Loli de 42 Anos – the Return

    who’s the blonde chick?

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    At least it’ll be X that gets the rape. Also, when did Captain Marvel become and ascended saiyan?

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    But Hulk’s dead, your eternal smugness.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    It’s also modern Capcom who has offended their fans with most of their recent shit. You just can’t be hyped for something by such huge fuck ups.

  • James

    But that’s not political, that’s just Capcom being a bunch of fuck ups. Which I won’t disagree with, but we’ll see if they put forth their best effort or not. At least according to the press release they want to make sure we know that they didn’t forget all the game modes this time.

  • TylorW

    Wait, they’re going to have a Story Mode to this? If so, HELL YEAH!!

  • Nuku Nuku Natsume Mishima

    I cant wait to see how they will censored the game, and how the cancer of SJW invade all the game.

  • Ice apollo

    miles morales and rashid aren’t that bad

  • LaTaleFan1985

    I wonder if Alia is the character that’s helping out X fight since most of the other navigators have only been in one or two games so far (Iris in Mega Man Xtreme 2 and Mega Man X4, Palette and Layer in Mega Man X8, and Nana in Mega Man X: Command Mission). :/

  • TheManWithPants

    Will the Final Boss be Donald Trump aka Current Year Marvel’s Red Skull?

  • TsukuyomiMagi99

    Samanosuke from Onimusha would be a cool addition.

  • Grey

    That would be a good pull from another criminally under represented series. It’s probably a bit heretical, but I wouldn’t mind seeing Jacques Blanc. There would probably be rights issues that would make it impossible though, since he’s literally Jean Reno.

    On the Marvel side, I’m hoping we see Moon Knight.

  • ProxyDoug

    Warbird is the best Miss Marvel for me.

  • Nin

    Miss Marvel. Though I thought she was Islamic Arabic now or something.

  • Nin

    Inb4 Gurren Lagann Trump

  • Dr. Roswell. W

    Miles boring as fuck, but you’re right he’s not that bad. Maybe if he wasn’t written terribly.

  • Eden

    But didn’t capcom censor MANY of the female characters in SFV because feminists and SJWs were crying “objectification”?

  • Eden

    Yeah, when I first saw the cover for the Civil War 2 comic I thought she was a redesigned, gay Captain America. I don’t understand why these “Strong women” characters can’t also be feminine. Seems silly to refer to them as women when you go out of your way to make them masculine…

  • Eden

    Ms. Marvel is the muslim girl. This is Captain Marvel (In the upcoming movie)

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    Frankly I liked her better when she was Ms. Marvel. I personally would like to see the Captain Marvel movie be about Mar-vell and her. Mar-vell dies at the end, and then in Avengers 3, she takes up the Captain Marvel mantle.
