Michael Evans from Capcom and Mike Jones from Marvel discussed the recently announced Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite game during the PSX 2016 Day 2 live stream. During the interview, it was explained that you don’t have to be an expert of prior Marvel Vs. Capcom games to enjoy and really get into MVC: Infinite.
Appealing to all audiences is also a big reason why there is such a big emphasis on story mode. Mike Jones said during the interview “If you want to enjoy a story that features all these characters that you wouldn’t see in any other Marvel or Capcom game, this is were you can see Mega Man X meets Iron Man, and how that goes.” A lot of thought has gone into the battle system, the visuals and the story mode also.
MVC: Infinite is even more proof that Marvel meant it when they said they wanted to raise the bar and set a new standard for Marvel games. It’s also the reason why there’s Spider-Man game by Insomniac Games and Guardians Of The Galaxy by Telltale Games, with both studios having a great reputation for their games. Mike Jones would go on to say “There’s no reason why our Marvel games shouldn’t be as good as our movies and comics are.”
When asked how far into development Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite is, Michael Evans answered the question, and without giving too many details explained that they want their features to be rich on day 1, and then made it clear that the team are only going to release the game when it’s ready, and are also taking their time with it.
