The next Marvel vs. Capcom game is set to hit systems sometime this year, and fans are already discussing possible new character inclusions.
MVC: Infinite will play around the Marvel Cinematic Universe as its source material. With a return to two-on-two gameplay and a bunch of improvements made from the last game, fans can’t wait to grab their fight sticks and head into battle.
With that in mind, we found six fighters that fans hope the developers will add to Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite.
Asura is a character from one of Capcom’s most surprising games of the previous console generation. The demigod warrior has enough over-the-top, strong, combat-based skills to fit right into the game’s chaotic roster.
The brother of Megaman from the classic NES days, Protoman isn’t just a clone of the blue bomber—he could bring a lot more to the table with his shield and close combat potential.
Leon Kennedy (Capcom)
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was littered with Resident Evil characters—except for one striking omission.
Leon Kennedy is one of the biggest faces of the Resident Evil series, and it feels like a crime not to have him included.
Rocket Raccoon and Groot (Marvel)
Rocket Raccoon was part of the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 roster, and may be looking to get in on the Infinite line-up. The idea of Groot and Rocket teaming up as one fighter would bring a lot more firepower and utility to the fighter(s).
The Punisher is one of the most requested characters to appear in an MVC game. As a one-man army, The Punisher is an expert fighter and close-range specialist that could become the game’s new gun-frenzy character.
Black Panther (Marvel)
With the new game’s focus on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther is another likely addition.
Black Panther’s high-octane appearance in the Civil War movie has created a lot of hype and anticipation for the character’s inclusion into the game.
