MVCI (Marvel vs Capcom Infinite) Full Roster Leak, Ryce Of NeoGAF Strikes Aagain! Not Impressed…

Posted by

I’m already sold on this game, primarily because of Mega Man X and the Maverick Reploid, Sigma himself, I’m obviously very bias. However, I do have some concerns about the information Ryce is getting on the game… NeoGAF user “Ryce”, who has credibility as he was the original leaker for Marvel vs Capcom 4 (without the 4, he proclaimed), is at it again. However, this time he has declared his leak being one of the entire starting roster.


Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite was officially unveiled at Sony’s PSX 2016 back in December. At the time fans were treated to a cinematic involving a small skirmish between Capcom’s Mega Man X and Marvel’s Iron Man who were joined by Ryu (Street Fighter) and Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers). Prior to that official unveiling, days before, Ryce mentioned rumblings of a MVC4, without the 4. Even some faked images of a sloppily designed 4 started to appear online in droves. However, at that event only a handful of characters had been shown and a teased boss character

  1. Mega Man X (Mega Man X Series)
  2. Ryu (Street Fighter)
  3. Iron Man
  4. Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers)
  5. Morrigan Aensland (Darkstalkers)
  6. Captain America
  7. Boss Character teased – I got it right, check the date and timestamps BOI!!!!

Then there was silence. No news, no information, a huge freaking drought for almost 5 solid months. Then something amazing happened, we got news and a new cinematic trailer! (Additionally some gameplay got leaked unofficially then a second gameplay trailer was officially released).

Currently our Official Roster is…

  1. Mega Man X (Mega Man X Series)
  2. Ryu (Street Fighter)
  3. Iron Man
  4. Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers)
  5. Morrigan Aensland (Darkstalkers)
  6. Captain America
  7. UltronSigma (Boss) – I got it right, check the date and timestamps BOI!!!!
  8. Chris Redfield
  9. Hulk
  10. Strider Hiryu
  11. Hawkeye
  12. Chun Li
  13. Thor
  14. Ultron
  15. Sigma
  16. Rocket Raccoon & Groot?

Now, after the last minute teaser with the release of “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2“, we have had no news… Well, not till Ryce shook things up the other day.

Possible Spoilers Ahead! Leak List Below!


Really hoping this is just an E3 2017 Build Roster!

Now of course, we should probably take this with a grain of salt. But this roster is about 28 characters, many returning from UMVC3.

Now honestly, before I comment on the leak I would like to mention a previous idea I had. Around the time just after, Eightings Marvel vs Capcom 3 (or just Vanilla MVC3) I had hoped for my second “sprite dump” game. For lack of a better way to describe this, I basically wanted another MVC2 for MVC4. Still confused? REUSE THOSE ASSETS; GIVE ME THE SAME GAMEPLAY, SAME ENGINE, SAME FIGHTERS, SAME MOVE SETS, PLUS NEW CHARACTERS IN MVC4! This is what I told myself, this is what I wanted. Honestly, that might be, sort of, what we will get from MVCI but, unfortunately, sold to us as post launch DLC…

It’s shocking to me that a Marvel vs Capcom game might launch with a roster around the same size as its competition, a game in which fights occur in a 1-on-1 style, Injustice 2. Especially when regarding how large the roster has been after the second and the third entry in the franchise. I always figured Marvel’s only competition, as far as iconic character fighters go, would be the Super Smash Bros series or M.U.G.E.N, I jest with that M.U.G.E.N nod. Of course anime fighters, Dragon Ball Z games, are known for incredibly large rosters but the depth of those games are shallow in comparison and often overly recycle animations for attacks and specials, i.e. what is the difference between Kamehameha and Galick Gun other than a posture and beam color? While I love Dragon Ball games I would never want my favorite fighting game franchise to be so easily made, but then again you could argue that is a larger problem of the source material rather than the games themselves, because Super Dragon Ball Z was the GOAT (Hyper Dragon Ball Z is even better). Regardless of my pessimism, if this MVCI leak list is true, there may still be a silver lining…

Ryce Roster = Dante vs Jedah Dohma!!!


But, unfortunately, this is modern Capcom we’re talking about… Unless there is a “DMC5” in the works, we might get DmC “Donte” in Dante’s place… If that’s the case, I’ll let “Donte” tell Capcom where they can shove it.
