Even though Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite is out and available just this past week, Capcom is already getting gamers hyped over the arrival of the new DLC for the game, including characters and content from the highly popular hack-and-slash role-playing game, Monster Hunter. We got to see what the new content will look like with the new DLC trailer.
The trailer starts in a high-impact way, with the hunter going straight at it, showcasing a mixture of different long range and short range attacks, neutral combos, and aerial attacks that span a variety of different moves and weapons that gamers have become accustomed to from the Monster Hunter franchise.
What's interesting, though, is that the pugilist doesn't have a name... she's simply known as the Monster Hunter. It's pretty odd given that they could have at least given her a name based on her class.
Anyway, she utilizes a two-handed Dragon Blade, twin daggers, a bow and arrow, along with a few other gimmicks and tricks from the highly lauded series. She fits in well enough with the Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite roster, not that the roster is all that impressive. In fact, one of the biggest complaints about the game is that the roster is rather thin. These complaints carried over into the comment section where people complained that the DLC characters are a bit too expensive for their tastes.
Others, however, are excited about the new female fighter from Monster Hunter and can't wait to play her in the game.
This isn't the first time that the character was even introduced to the fighting game community. Capcom had announced a handful of DLC characters ahead of the launch of Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite.
The DLC characters were also teased during the story mode, where we saw the Monster Hunter and Black Panther. The King was worried about protecting his people, where-as the Monster Hunter was apparently one of his guards. It almost made sense given that there were giant monsters roaming around outside the kingdom and the Monster Hunter was there to... well, hunt them.
Players were unable to play as Black Panther or the Monster Hunter in the story mode of Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite, but the characters will be available as separate purchases or as part of the season pass.
Some have been arguing that this DLC setup seems reminiscent of Street Fighter X Tekken, where the DLC was already stored on the disc and gamers simply had to pay money to unlock the characters already on the disc. Others argue that the DLC isn't finished yet and that it isn't cut content.
Regardless where you fall on the debate, Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite is currently available right now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. You can learn more about the DLC schedule by visiting the official website.
