With a large roster pulling from deep within both the Marvel and Capcom universes, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is set to feature iconic faces from both sides, though in particular Capcom looks to be addressing some of the critiques on how some of them look so far.

Speaking during a panel at San Diego Comic Con (via GameSpot), Marvel vs Capcom Infinite producer Yoshinori Ono provided a statement that “based off the feedback we heard, we are currently making improvements to Chun-Li as well as other Capcom characters” in terms of their character models. Ono added that “since the work is still in progress, we don’t have anything final to show you just yet, but stay tuned.”

Ono’s comments are in response to vicious fan criticism since the reveal of Marvel vs Capcom Infinite back in December, in which many fans threw negative responses to some of the characters’ appearances in the game (among other issues). Specifically, characters such as Chun-Li, Dante, and Chris Redfield have drawn ire for poor quality character models, though (hopefully) it seems like Capcom will be addressing that in the months leading up to its release.

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on September 19th, 2017 in North America and Europe, followed by a Japanese release on July 21st, 2017.
