Capcom has announced a new playable fighter coming to Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite at this year’s EVO.

The new addition is Jedah Dohma from the Darkstalkers series will be in the game’s roster. Featured above, you can view a short recording of an exhibition match featuring Jedah.

    A new function is announced!

    Dead game walking…

    I think the worst thing they could’ve done is show that after an UMvC3 grand final. It looked like ugly, awkward molasses in comparison.

  • Mid 90’s Shinigami

    You deserve better Jedah.

  • OzymandiasAeonis

    This might have been some of the worst PR I’ve ever seen in gaming, I’d say it’s the “gamers are dead” of gaming PR and I hope it seriously fucks up their sales, the comment by Michael Evans was the cherry on the shit sundae where he acted like Marvel fans don’t remember X-Men characters which I’m guessing he’s parroting from Marvel/Disney, but I hope X-Men fans do remember this when they consider supporting the latest thing out of the MCU mill.

  • Mr0303

    I think it’s the double talk that pisses people off. If he just said something along the lines of “Our partners at Marvel have the final decision on their part of the roster.” fans would be more forgiving. Don’t make up the lame functions excuse – it seems that you are disrespecting the consumers’ love for certain characters, which as you said is terrible PR.

  • OzymandiasAeonis

    It’s true he was bending over backwards to avoid having to admit the truth like somehow admitting that Marvel wants to push their MCU agenda is more damaging than the shit he unleashed instead. Even worse is that Evans would go on to drop the double talk and basically admit to the agenda being at play here “Captain Marvel may seem like a strange pick, but she’s fantastic. She
    fits the gameplay. She fits the story, and [Marvel is] gonna be really
    pushing her as a strong female lead all the way up into the movie.”

  • Mr0303

    He may be under some sort of NDA where he can’t talk about the business specifics about the deal, but the way he chose to present it was terrible. There is nothing wrong with praising a character and saying that she’s great (although I doubt how much of that is sincere and how much is simply marketing), but diminishing people’s favourite characters at her expense is idiotic.

  • NukeA6

    Geez, did they need that female commentator? I heard hyperactive 12 year olds that were less annoying.

  • AuraMaster DX (austin9568)
  • Kessek

    They were both awful.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    And thus did the Darkstalker community find out that Capcom remembered them; the news of which cause many a man and woman to collapse into a weeping mass. Legends fans live another day in glorious repugnance!

  • Are our Eyes Real?

    >but I hope X-Men fans do remember this when they consider supporting the latest thing out of the MCU mill

    You are aware X-men are not part of the MCU, right? And that the reason they are not part of it is not because “fuck Marvel” but because Fox owns the rights, right?

    I agree with everything you said, but that last line is just plain dumb and out of place.

  • Guest

    Just because Fox owns the film rights doesn’t make it any less scummy towards the fans for Marvel to pretend their own characters don’t exist. Fans supported X-Men for years, but now they can’t make as much money as they’d like from the films, so everyone who likes the X-Men just gets a big “fuck you” from Marvel.

    I’m sure a team of rich marketing suits could convince me that it’s a great business decision to cut off the X-Men until they get the rights back, but I’d still tell them to go fuck themselves.

  • Rough

    I’ve seen both of these people for years and I can tell which moments when they are truly hype for something, especially for Yipes.

    This is NOT one of those moments. It all looks fake.

  • Pilebunker

    Bring a character in and then censor the coolest thing about him. Jedah used blood in all of his attacks and now it’s a purple goop for no reason. To add to insult, his joints where the blood leaks are red. Even Carmen from Under Night In Birth can get away with this yet Capcom can’t?

    Might as well be Ivan Ooze. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/eb8beadce2eb1f1ed0238e0c5e0b8a0375392579b0f6046f96ec771983c94e28.gif

    rip in pepperoni Capcum.

  • Geez, did they need that female commentator?

    yes for diversity

  • OzymandiasAeonis

    Indeed I’m just saying fans of X-Men fans shouldn’t support Marvel’s MCU as Marvel would shitcan everything X-Men under their control if they thought they could get away with it instead of just simply taking their salt out on things like MVC here.

  • Mark my words. Never mess with a badass Makai nobleman like Jedah Dohma. Still a refreshing change from Felicia after she’s been in enough MvC games. 😃

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Well they should put the kibosh on the X-Men, the muties were going to shit long before they started forcing SJW stuff in everything.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Do you think he still blows people up?

  • Still looks awful.

  • Shocker Rider GG

    yeah he deserves to be in a better game

  • Shocker Rider GG

    he is the only interesting thing since the trailer that revealed x
    also fuck spencer

  • Nagato

    I would hope them being awful movies would be enough to not support the MCU.

    Sadly it seems there isn’t much hope left for mankind, though.
