Marvel vs Capcom 4 (almost) confirmed, but X don’t mark the spot


Rumors are going around that Marvel vs Capcom 4 will be announced during PSX/Capcom cup this weekend. The latest rumor, coming from NeoGaf sources pretty much confirm that the game it is in development. But there is a catch: no mutants allowed.

Marvel vs Capcom 4 will be fully focused on the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) on Marvel’s side. So the always popular characters like Wolverine, Cyclops or our beloved Phoenix (ha!) will most likely not be in the game, in favor of ones like AntMan, Scarlett Witch (I am Groot? I am Groot!).

Based on the latest movies, we can guess that the following characters would be available:

  • Captain America
  • Iron Man
  • Thor
  • Spider-Man
  • Hulk
  • Star-Lord
  • Nova
  • Ant-Man
  • Dr. Strange

The game it is expected to be launched for PS4 and PC (based on Marvel’s close relationship with Sony and the same with Sony and Capcom), but I do think it will eventually come to Xbox. (Switch? Not sure…)
