Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite stories

Check out Snazzytiger's amazing fighting game artwork depicting Cloud, Link, Tira, Laura, Zero, and more

We recently came across Snazzytiger's outstanding fighting game artwork on Facebook. He's depicted a variety of fighting game characters from different franchises.

The image with the most color has the Legend of Zelda's Link facing off against Final Fantasy's Cloud Strife. They're seen doing battle at Final Destination, one of Super Smash Bros.'s most iconic battlegrounds.

Street Fighter 5 is now Capcom's 10th best selling title ever

Street Fighter 5's rocky launch in 2016 will likely never be forgotten by players and the community, but the game has continued a strong and steady approach over these past four years to bring people in.

Capcom has updated their Platinum Titles page to include sales numbers for their top games of all time through the end of March 2020 where it was revealed Street Fighter 5 is now the company's 10th best selling single release of all time.

Remember that time where Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was advertised with energy bar recipes?

A lot of factors surrounding the development of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite ended up being a recipe for disaster. Unfortunately, only 1.4 million sales has been achieved since the game's release on September 19, 2017.

It's been nearly three years since Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was released, but there are still a number of aspects about that game that were... memorable, to say the least. Earlier today, AceKingOffsuit poked fun at a certain advertisement for MvCI that was certainly interesting.

ShuichiWada's ladies of fighting games know just how to get your attention

There wasn't a ton of fighting game art to be found on ShuichiWada's Twitter page, but the 10 images we did find are all well worth sharing.

It's clear that the Japanese artist has a preference for drawing the more feminine fighters (save for a great Super Saiyan Trunks sketch). It's also clear that they're exceedingly good at what they do as we found ourselves melting at the sight of Android 18's icy blue eyes upon first viewing.

Here's a roundup of awesome Jill Valentine and Nemesis Marvel vs. Capcom beatdowns in honor of tomorrow's Resident Evil 3 remake release

Especially after last year's super successful Resident Evil 2 remake, Capcom fans are on the edge of their seats for tomorrow's (April 3) highly anticipated release of the Resident Evil 3 remake.

Capcom's survival horror franchise has provided a ton of memorable highlights, and one of the most impacting of them all has to be the way the RE3's most fearsome antagonist, Nemesis, chases Jill Valentine in anxiety-spiking games of cat and mouse throughout the story. These heart-stopping interactions are surely a major part of why both Jill and Nemesis have made multiple appearances in Capcom's Versus series titles.

The rage quit at the end of this brutal Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite beatdown from Captain America and X makes it even better

It's always a good day when we find a Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite gem like this to share. A Mega-Man X and Captain America player by the name of Miguel "SCMike" Poblete nailed a particularly insane combo while recently streaming, and demoralized his foe (almost understandably) to the point of rage quitting.

The match starts and Mike's X actually takes an early beam blast from the opposing Ultron, but that's all the damage either of the clearly competent competitor's characters would take as the tide instantly turns in his favor in a big way.

Sigma tags at a bad time and eats the full wrath of the Time Stone in this devastating Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite clip

The Versus series of fighting games can quickly see situations where a character who isn't on point can come in and get hit with no way to defend themselves. It becomes up to the point character to save them, but if the main fighter gets knocked out... there's little that can be done to rescue the assist.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite works a bit differently, as it's a 2v2 fighter, but the same concept can be employed when a character is tagged in and the other still has yet to leave the screen. This awesome clip from TheJakoMan shows just how bad things can get in the blink of an eye.

Teppen adds Zero from the Mega Man X series as its latest playable character with the new Haunted by Memories expansion

Akuma was the last character to come to the Capcom crossover card game Teppen, and now the newest hero, while he didn't get his start in fighting games, also has quite the ties to the FGC โ€” though many here may view him as a villain.

Zero from the Mega Man X series is now available as Teppen's fourth post-launch playable character with the Haunted by Memories expansion which is quite fitting given the character and new mechanic.

That awkward moment when you make the correct read in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite but still lose

It's not every day we post about Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, but when a "bruh moment" (as poster, Jako Man, puts it) as hilarious as this happens, we have to share.

We visit a match en media res between Dormammu and Nemesis, both having lost their partners and vying for the win. Nemesis comes armed with a Resident Evil rocket launcher, which he uses to try to get the last bit of health from his foe's life bar.

If a Marvel 4 comes out, the only thing I wish for it is that it looks like it's a successor: Justin Wong tells us hopes for the next Versus game

Back at Capcom Cup 2019, I was able to catch up with long-time fighting game veteran and friend of EventHubs, Justin Wong.

During the action-packed weekend, Justin and I spoke about what he hopes to see in a new Versus series title (or Marvel vs. Capcom title) should one come to fruition. We also discussed how he goes about balancing home life, professionally competing, and consistent live streaming.

Poll results: If there is indeed a new Capcom vs. title in development, which company would you like to see them collaborate with for a new fighter?

Update: The results are in. Check out how our readers voted after the jump.

Earlier: The classic Capcom vs. series has ties going all of the way back to the early 90's with X-Men: Children of the Atom though they've since gone on to create crossover titles with many other developers / companies.

Yesterday gave us quite the surprise on that specific fighting game front when V's English voice actor from Devil May Cry 5 suggested that a new Capcom vs. title may very well be in production.

But who would Capcom characters be fighting against in this new decade?

These four Capcom characters might be more relevant for a future Versus title since after Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite's release

Talks about a possible Capcom Versus title has recently surfaced thanks to the exciting talk of Brian Hanford, the voice actor behind V in Devil May Cry 5. Although Hanford has declared that he has no knowledge of anything of the sort, it's still possible that Capcom might be coincidentally developing something behind the scenes anyhow.

Unfortunately, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite turned out to be a flop thanks to certain design decisions and community backlash. Despite its goal to sell over two million units, it has reportedly only reached 1.4 million sales.

The relevancy of characters really seemed to play a major role when it came to roster additions for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. If only for fun, let's talk about what characters have become relevant for Capcom since Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite in the event that a new Capcom Versus title is in the works.

Update: V's voice actor from Devil May Cry 5 is 'absolutely pumped for the next #CapcomVS game' before saying he has no knowledge of new projects

Update: Mr. Hanford appears to have taken notice of the fervor his tweet caused yesterday and has now provided a new statement telling fans that he has no knowledge of any new Capcom games or what they may entail. You can find his full statement added to the bottom of the story.

Brian Hanford, also known as V's voice actor from Devil May Cry 5, made a rather unusual Tweet earlier today. It appears to be a blatant hint at the existence of an upcoming Capcom versus game.

"Absolutely pumped for the next #CapcomVS game," stated Hanford. "New characters but could be VERY familiar..."

Street Fighter 5 finally crosses the 4 million sales mark in just under 4 years on the market

When Street Fighter 5 first launched back in early 2016, the game wasn't exactly the sales juggernaut its predecessor once was, but it's continued to climb and reach milestones every year since.

Capcom has now updated their Platinum Titles page to reflect the final quarter of 2019 where it is revealed that Street Fighter 5 has now sold 4.1 million copies as of the end of last year.

Let's talk about that surprise Marvel vs. Capcom 2 reveal for EVO 2020, what the players are saying and what this could mean for the series' future

Last night set the pace for pretty much the rest of the year for the fighting game community, as EVO announced its mainstage titles where some surprising picks made the list โ€” and some were left off.

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was the ninth and final game revealed for EVO 2020 for a special 20th anniversary invitational to dig into the event's history to the point it even pre-dates the EVO name change.
