MARVEL VS. CAPCOM returns after five-year hiatus
for series that shipped 7 million units –

Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) today announced that MARVEL VS. CAPCOM®: INFINITE is scheduled to be released in late 2017 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One® and Windows PC.

MARVEL VS. CAPCOM is a series of action-fighting games featuring a dream-team of iconic characters, including fan favorites from globally acclaimed Marvel Entertainment, LLC (Marvel) and legends from Capcom. Since it debuted in 1999, MARVEL VS. CAPCOM has enjoyed broad appeal—especially in markets outside of Japan—due to the hallmarks of its stunningly animated visuals and breadth of characters.

MARVEL VS. CAPCOM: INFINITE is the latest entry in the MARVEL VS. CAPCOM series, which boasts cumulative shipments of 7 million units. The title is currently under development and slated to include numerous popular characters such as Captain Marvel and Iron Man from the Marvel universe, as well as Ryu of Street Fighter and X of Mega Man X, both from the Capcom universe. Beyond appealing to genre and series fans, the game is targeting a diverse audience and looks to bring in casual players who are fans of Marvel movies, comic books, and television shows; as such, starting with a robust cinematic Story Mode, the game will feature a variety of exciting and accessible single player content, as well as rich multi-player modes including online battles.

In addition to regular major title releases each fiscal year, Capcom is currently focused on reviving series that have not had new entries recently, or otherwise dormant IP. Beginning with MARVEL VS. CAPCOM: INFINITE, a return for the series following a five-year hiatus, Capcom looks to enhance its corporate value even further by utilizing its library of rich contents.

Capcom remains firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all users by leveraging its industry-leading game development capabilities in order to create highly entertaining gameplay experiences.
