Gamescom is in full force today, and Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is playable on the show floor with some new characters, including the recently revealed Jedah, Dormammu, Ghost Rider, and Firebrand. Today, Capcom released a new gameplay trailer showing off these characters in action, giving us a taste of their individual playstyles.
This gameplay footage shows quite a few combos and active switches between these characters. Personally, I was hoping Ghost Rider, Jedah, and Dormammu would show up in this new entry, so I am happy to see them in action in this new trailer, in addition to Firebrand’s interesting inclusion.The video also showcases the Soul Stone, which steals life from opponents during combos when it its Infinity Surge variation, and lets players revive their partner with its Infinity Storm variation.
For those who don’t know, Ghost Rider and Dormammu are both demonic characters from Marvel Comics, and first appeared in Marvel Spotlight #5 and Strange Tales #126 respectively. Meanwhile, Jedah and Firebrand are from Capcom’s side of the game. Jedah is a character in cult classic fighting game series Darkstalkers, while Firebrand is from the Ghosts’N Goblins series.
You can check out the new gameplay trailer below, alongside some new character art for the four characters prominently featured in this trailer. Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is currently poised to release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One September 19.
