Report: Marvel vs. Capcom 4 Slated for 2017

Report: Marvel vs. Capcom 4 Slated for 2017

It’s OK – you can stop asking yourself “When’s Marvel.” The colourful team-based fighter which sees videogame and comic book characters duke it out will be getting a new entry on consoles next year, reports Polygon. Sources close to the project have told the publication that the game is currently under development, and set to release in 2017.

The game will be showcased at this week’s PlayStation Experience, say sources. Capcom already looks to have a significant presence there this year, with the Street Fighter V Capcom Cup being in contention.

It won’t just include nods to comics however. Expect to see characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe make appearances. This means characters from films like The Avengers, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Indeed, characters like Groot and Ant-Man may make appearances, while mainstays like Wolverine and Magneto will be left behind.

The last game in the series – Marvel vs. Capcom 3 – launched in 2011 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. An Ultimate version released a year later, which introduced new characters and new mechanics.

Any characters from the Cinematic Universe you think would be a perfect fit for the kinetic fighter? Let us know in the comments below!

Black Panther would definitely be a great fit. Wouldn't be happy though if they took out characters like Wolverine and Magneto.

Possibly a controversial opinion, but I'd like to see them ditch the Capcom cast and just return to the roots of X-Men: Children of the Atom and Marvel Super Heroes. It worked okay with X-Men vs Street Fighter, but it starts getting a little silly when you have Phoenix Wright in there, if you ask me.

Yeah I agree. Id love it to go back to being just Marvel. I never pick the Capcom guys anyway

I'm still taking these rumors with a grain of salt but would be nice to see another MVC announced. As for characters all I want to see from Capcom is one of the Onimusha main characters.

I'm guessing the potential omission of Wolverine and Magneto (X-men all) is due to the licensing of the characters between Disney and 20th Century Fox. Hard to have Capcom, Disney and Fox all going backwards and forth about approval's.

As long as they include a proper Aracade mode, not something pathetic like SFV launched with, then I'm happy.
