Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is finally out in the wild, boasting a roster of 30 characters split between those two universes. But, this being a modern fighting game, you better believe some DLC characters will be made available in the coming months. Capcom has confirmed six new fighters will eventually join the fray, including Monster Hunter, Winter Soldier, Black Widow, Venom, Black Panther and Sigma.
This news comes to us via Eurogamer, who got word from Capcom concerning four of the DLC characters slated to arrive in Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite. Two of those characters, Black Panther and Sigma, were already known quantities. Capcom already confirmed that duo a while back and, once you get to digging into the story mode, you'll even see them make an appearance. Black Panther is an obvious pull due to his upcoming movie by the same name, and Sigma is one of the big bads in the game that gets fused with Ultron. In case that character is new to you, he's the main baddie in the Mega Man X series from Capcom.
As for the rest of the DLC roster, we're pretty excited to see these characters join the fray. Having played the game for a few hours, my mind is already spinning with ideas for how characters like Venom and Monster Hunter will control. And you can never really go wrong with a duo like Winter Soldier or Black Widow, either. For clarification, Monster Hunter is exactly what that sounds like; a monster hunter from the Capcom series by the same name. Word is that this will be a female character capable of pulling out all sorts of iconic weapons and gear from the series.
If you want to add all of those characters to the game, it looks like the DLC bundle will be going for about $30, as that's the price difference between the Standard Edition and Deluxe Edition of Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite. That version will also include a premium costume for each of those characters. If you're especially flush with cash, you can also grab the Collector's Edition, which includes four character statues and a box containing the Infinity Stones that drive the game's story.
Assuming those six characters will be the only DLC additions to the game, that puts the Infinite roster at 36 total characters. However, you may have noticed that this will leave the Marvel side with two more combatants than the Capcom side. We honestly wouldn't be surprised if, six months from now, a second series of DLC characters were announced that will even things out. That's all speculation, though.
So what do you think of the current full roster, readers? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
