As a fan of both Marvel and Capcom, many gamers and enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the possibility of a fourth installment of the popular fighting game series, Marvel vs Capcom. With the release of Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite in 2017, fans were left wondering if there was going to be a continuation of the franchise.
So, is there going to be a Marvel vs Capcom 4? Let’s dive into the details.
The first Marvel vs Capcom game was released back in 1996 and quickly became a fan favorite among gamers. The series features characters from both the Marvel Comics Universe and various video games developed by Capcom. The gameplay involves selecting three characters to form a team and battling against another team in 2D fighting style combat.
The Latest Release:
Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite was released in 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. Unfortunately, it did not receive the positive reception that its predecessors had received. Critics and fans alike criticized the game for its lackluster story mode, poor graphics, limited character roster, and bland gameplay mechanics.
What Developers Have Said:
Since the release of Infinite, there have been no official announcements about a new installment in the series from either Marvel or Capcom. However, developers from both companies have made statements that suggest that they are open to creating another game in the series.
In an interview with Comicbook.com in 2020, Bill Rosemann (the Vice President & Head of Creative at Marvel Games) stated that “there is always hope” for another game in the franchise. He went on to say that “I always say never say never because everything is possible.”
Capcom’s producer Yoshinori Ono also expressed his interest in creating another game in an interview with Eurogamer back in 2018. He said “I am interested in doing something again with the Vs series in the future.”
What Fans Want:
Fans of the series have been very vocal about their desire for a new Marvel vs Capcom game. Many have taken to social media to express their disappointment with Infinite and to share their ideas for what they would like to see in a new game.
Some fans have requested a larger character roster that includes more classic characters from both Marvel and Capcom franchises. Others have suggested improvements to the gameplay mechanics, such as better balance between characters and more dynamic combos.
While there is no official confirmation of a Marvel vs Capcom 4, there is hope among fans and developers alike.
