The official Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite YouTube channel has just dropped a brand new trailer for the game. This time, we see series newcomers Black Panther and Sigma in action.

Panther joins the roster on the Marvel side, and Sigma comes from Capcom.

As expected, Black Panther is incredibly fast and appears to have a rushdown playstyle. He uses his claws to put a beat down on opponents, and has an incredibly fast air dash.

He can cling to walls, and quickly jump from one wall to the other giving him ways to escape bad situations and more opportunities to open up his opponent.

Sigma utilizes his laser sword a lot in battle. He has a standard projectile super, a counter teleport, and can open up dimensional rifts that linger on screen, making it difficult for his opponent to move.

We can expect to see both characters, as well as Monster Hunter, released on October 17th, 2017. Those who purchase the 2017 character pass will automatically receive all six DLC characters (when they become available), as well as their premium costumes. For those who don't, each character will cost $7.99 each, and will also come along with the premium costume.

Black Panther, Sigma, and Monster Hunter will be joined by Venom, Black Widow, and the Winter Soldier at a later date. The former three characters will be playable at New York Comic-Con 2017 this week.

Black Panther and Sigma's involvement in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is as follows (courtesy of Capcom Unity): When his father was murdered, T’Challa stepped forward to earn the mantle of the Black Panther, ruler of the technologically-advanced African nation of Wakanda.

With his genius intellect, unrivaled combat expertise, and strong sense of justice, he rules over the newly-formed “Valkanda” and serves as its guild master now that his kingdom has merged with Val Habar, a desert town known for its monster hunters.

Sigma was the first and most powerful reploid created by reverse-engineering X. Sigma once protected humanity against Mavericks (reploids who malfunctioned and became a threat to humanity) until the fateful day when Zero’s stasis pod was unearthed.

Zero awakened in an out-of-control state, infected with a mysterious virus, but Sigma did not. Corrupted, Sigma became the instigator of numerous Maverick uprisings. Now Sigma and his virus are one with Ultron Sigma, a being whose hatred towards humanity is limitless.
