If you're a fan of Mega Man X and story modes, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite's developers say you're in for a real treat this go round.


"Another huge pillar of the game is going to be the story," Capcom's Michael Evans said.

"For the first time, we're getting to tell the story of how the worlds come together," Evans stated.

"Mega Man X is going to fit very deeply into the story along with Captain Marvel," he noted.
How they're choosing which characters to include

"Speaking from the Marvel side, the core of everything we, from filmmaking to TV to publishing, and games, is storytelling," said Marvel Game's Mike Jones.

"And so with the new emphasis on the cinematic story mode and the story of how these two universes collide, and how our characters meet and what that means, [that] drove a lot of the creative decisions for what characters to use," Jones stated.

"If you want to enjoy a story that features all these characters that you wouldn't see in any other Marvel game, or any other Capcom game.

"This is where you're gonna see, you know, Mega Man X meets Iron Man, and what does that look like, what happens?" he added.

"As you can see, it's taken a little bit more of a cinematic approach," said Evans.

"And it's gonna have an amazing story about how these worlds came together for the first time," concluded Evans.
