Editor's note: We have made edits to this story to clarify that Mike Evans' statement about Chun-Li was said in jest.

One of the main talking points for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite as of late has been its overall look. Many fans have expressed a dislike for the graphics style, saying that the game looks flat and some of the character models aren't up to par with other modern fighting titles.

Easily the loudest uproar came from Chun-Li's... weird looking face. It has been the talk of the town all month, and Capcom recently addressed the feedback.

In a set of interviews with GameSpot, Capcom's own Peter "Combofiend" Rosas and Mike Evans discussed some of the most prominent topics and concerns pertaining to Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. We learn more about the approach to the game's unique look and whether or not we'll see any drastic changes come launch.

"It's interesting to see the feedback on that kind of stuff," Evans told GameSpot. "Not to say that the fans are wrong or nitpicking stuff like that. That feedback is coming and we're hearing that feedback and we're taking it in stride and figuring out how we can improve on things.

"That said, the game comes out in three months so there's gonna be things that we can do in that time remaining and things that we can't do. When it comes to the overall look of the game, I feel like when people get it in their hands and they see it in motion, they really get what we're trying to do with the cinematic look."

Evans goes on to say that the stages play a large role in making the characters pop. XGARD was the first backdrop shown off for the game, and due to this particular battleground being fairly dark and having muted lighting, it doesn't really show off the game's colors or characters very well.

"I think as we show more stages, people will be impressed by the variety, with the look of the game and how the characters pop off it," Evans explained.

But what about the elephant in the room? Will we be seeing anything done about Chun-Li's face?

Though there's no guarantee we'll see a Chun-Li makeover by the time the game launches, Evans assures fans that they are aware of the feedback and agrees that her face is... a bit of an eyesore.

"Yes. Well when put that way, I say, I never wanted to look at it again. It's super--no, okay. It is disgusting," Evans said jokingly. " Of course we will look at it again. We're gonna look at it. Can't promise anything right now, but we want to make our fans happy, man.

"We're not an evil overlord company, despite the rumors. We do want to make our fans happy. Can't promise anything. We'll look into it. I believe Ono already said something about that."

Knowing is half the battle, as they say, so it's good that Capcom isn't completely ignoring the feedback here. Having said that, let's hope they can fix Dante too...
