Capcom Aware of Botched Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite Character Designs, Hopes to Fix Prior to Launch

This year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo has come and gone – however a reoccurring concern is how downright awful and strange the character models in Marvel vs Capcom Infinite looked in the game’s latest build.

The new character models for characters Dante (Devil May Cry), Chun-Li (Street Fighter), and even Chris Redfield (Resident Evil) looked even weirder than Street Fighter IV’s designs, and in some aspects – unfinished to where they stick out like a sore thumb.

Featured above, you can view a direct comparison between Dante’s in-game form and his Devil May Cry 4 visage – it’s quite staggering when you see them side by side. Here’s a look at Chun-Li and her half-missing eyebrows:

The designs are so bad Capcom themselves have even taken notice, with Capcom boss Mike Evans addressing the problem in an interview with Gamespot.

“I never wanted to look at it again. It’s super–no, okay. It is disgusting,” Evans said. “Of course we will look at it again. We’re gonna look at it. Can’t promise anything right now, but we want to make our fans happy, man. We’re not an evil overlord company, despite the rumors. We do want to make our fans happy. Can’t promise anything. We’ll look into it. I believe Ono already said something about that.”

Evans went on to note that these are still screenshots, which sometimes are not a fair representation of what the game looks like in motion.

“It’s interesting to see the feedback on that kind of stuff. Not to say that the fans are wrong or nitpicking stuff like that. That feedback is coming and we’re hearing that feedback and we’re taking it in stride and figuring out how we can improve on things,” he said.

“That said, the game comes out in three months so there’s gonna be things that we can do in that time remaining and things that we can’t do. When it comes to the overall look of the game, I feel like when people get it in their hands and they see it in motion, they really get what we’re trying to do with the cinematic look.”

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will launch across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 19th of this year.
