With a lot of stuff still up in the air about the netcode, DLC characters, DLC plan and other things there's been a lot of rumors and "leaks" still out for the game. Figured I might as well make a thread that lists them so it's in one place to discuss. That way at least people know what MIGHT be on the horizon.

If this thread gets popular or important enough I'll sticky it.

A new reddit leak emerges
https://www.reddit.com/r/mvci/comments/6zoh3g/marvel_vs_capcom_infinite_dlc_details_leakedall/
(The information displayed has been confirmed by two separate sources. DLC has apparently been in development since mid-August)

-The Six characters are Sigma, Monster Hunter, Gill, Black Panther, Winter Soldier and Venom

-Venom is considered a new character on the ground that he has not been a part of the 3D iterations of the Marvel vs. series. All of his animations have to be created from scratch.

-All characters are set to release in pairs on a monthly basis. Sigma and Black Panther launch October 3rd.

-All characters can either be bought in a pair or separately, Each character is priced at 5.99 while buying them as a pair costs 9.99. (This is in American dollars. Prices may vary per country)

-There are apparently plans in the works for free DLC revolving around multiple infinity stone surges and storms along with new game modes, including an online tournament mode.

-There are no current plans to include Japanese voices in the game, but it is apparently not impossible for us to see it down the line if demand is high enough.

-It is noted that fan feedback has greatly affected the development team's plans for the year of 2018. No characters are named, but we should be expected to see characters that alot of people want to see (X-Men? Dr. Doom? Captain Commando?)

-Brief overviews of the six character's playstyles have been released:
Sigma: A highly mobile rushdown character that has access to multiple dash and teleport moves. Moveset is mainly based off of X1 and X2, but also features aspects from X3, namely the Kaiser armor.

Black Panther: A pure rushdown character that is all about being in close and opening the opponent up with quick and powerful attacks. Playstyle is a cross between X-23 and Sabretooth.

Hunter: A damage dealer that uses a huge multitude of weapons from the Monster Hunter series to fight, on top of items such as flash bombs, traps and barrel bombs. The base appearance is based off of the Rathalos armor, while her main weapon is a great sword. Certain weapons are only usable in hyper combos. Can also call on assistance from Palicoes and call out a Rathalos with a hunting horn.

Winter Soldier: A damage dealer that uses a massive arsenal of weapons to fight. His gun weapons only have a certain amount of ammo per weapon, but as opposed to reloading like Chris, Winter Soldier can throw weapons as an extra projectile, which can be used to open up or extend combos.

Gill: A hard hitting character who can deal heavy amounts of damage thanks to his powerful normals. All of his specials from Street Fighter 3 are intact, including Seraphim Wing, his level 3 hyper combo. Resurrection is intact at the cost of 3 bars, but once it's used, it cannot be used again for the rest of the match. Gill cannot be resurrected by the Soul stone.

Venom: A damage dealer that retains alot of the techniques he had in earlier games in the franchise, on top of several new abilities. Works best with characters who can cover his approach, due to a lack of projectile and average movement options.

-Several stages are in development, only one of which has been named so far. The stage is known as "Asteroid S - Throne of the Four Gods." and is believed to be based off of Asteroid M from the X-Men comics and the Shadaloo base from Street Fighter.

-There is one unlockable character, Ultron Sigma. Ultron Sigma is featured right at the top of the roster, in between both the Marvel and Capcom sides. His playstyle is much more rushdown-oriented than that of regular Ultron, losing access to Death Ray but gains a couple of Sigma's dash attacks. All of his hyper combos are apparently brand new. -Ultron Sigma is unlocked once the player has completed Story Mode on both difficulty settings.

-Arcade Mode has eight stages, the final being a two-phase fight against Ultron Sigma. First phase features Ultron Sigma and a newly-created Ultron and/or Sigma created by the Reality Stone. Once defeated, Ultron Sigma will unleash the full power of their stones, creating Ultron Omega.

This information was disclosed by a pair of unnamed individuals who have been involved with Marvel Infinite's production cycle, although these two are not direct members of the development team. Names will not be disclosed, but the least you should know is that these individuals have high hopes for this game's potential in the near future.

There are officially no reports of any information regarding Capcom's plans for 2018, but it is believed that all of this year's DLC will be out before the end of November.




Other stuff that I've heard

- Some other most likely false list that has characters like Lady from DMC and Sabretooth from Xmen.
- Supposedly the Monster Hunter characters is a Rathalos female that appears in the story mode.

Ain't nothin, Capcom's ruthless still producin.  Cut em a check or find yoself toothless.  Keep it shill with no confusin.  Niggas say I'm shill...they ain't hard I can prove it YEEEAH

    Man, even the dlc is a disappointment. Like, I expect the marvel side to be garbage, but Gilll? Seriously?
    It sounds just shitty enough to be real.

    I know who he is, I just dont really want to play as him in a marvel game. I'd rather have Juri if we have to get another street fighter character.

    Story mode leaks, it's in a spoiler box for a reason.

    Thanos steals the Dark Hadou/ Satsui no Hadou from Ryu and uses it to fire a hadouken at Jedah.

    Edit: As it turns out, Death supposedly betrays Thanos at some point during the story, so he's actually firing the hadouken at her and not Thanos.

    Gill is a good pick, he's got what it takes to be in a Marvel game, I'm not sure I believe it tho with the whole ressurection thing. I wonder who's better, P1 Gill or P2 Gill?

    Someone already finish the story mode & watch the after credits:
    Ending has Reality Stone which was in Ultron's possession shattered into 6 (2 Earth, 2 Xgard & 2 Dark Kingdom).

    The scene after Thanos secretly steals Ryu's Dark Hadou & use it on Death is on the after credits of Part 1 Storyline,

    Story Continues on the next part.

    Just like Tekken 7 & Street Fighter V. Means we'll get to see another characters (such as X-Men & Fantastic Four) besides the storyline. I just hope the Asteroid S DLC Stage is true about Magneto & M. Bison's existence, not to mention so will Akuma too as Thanos has Ryu's Dark Hadou now.
    I'm just a gamer/troper whose just passing by. The answers lies in the Heart of Battle.

    Picture of the Rathalos female that appears in story mode. Will most likely be the playable Monster Hunter character.

    Ultron Sigma NOT through StoryDiscussion (self.mvci)

    submitted 1 dia ago * by Edo_Tayuya

    Just played through the Story Twice, so the rumor he gets unlocked the second time around is false, didn't actually get ANYTHING for the second run through, so save your time. I've beaten arcade a couple of times, not on very hard yet though. So I can't say if you perhaps get him there.

    got bamboozled.

    UPDATE: I've now beaten Arcade on All Difficulties, got nothing at all.

    Lady from DMC? Seems pretty likely, actually. The game is hurting for female characters, and it would explain why they removed her rocket launcher from Dante's moveset.

    Trish has been turned into a color palette (3) for Dante, also, so I doubt she's returning.

    More shitty rumors


    Marvel vs Capcom Infinite:
    Season 2 as of the last update I heard from various sources compiled together will be Star-Lord, Ms. Marvel, Asura, Gill, and Lady, but the last character is one not everyone I've heard from has been able to agree on. There being multiple characters in development is likely to blame. The majority of them say Rashid while others have said Regina and one even said Apollo Justice.

    Here's where things get really interesting. All the characters that I've heard that are in development (to various extents and from multiple sources, but not all saying the same things I might add, which is something strange in and of itself) include: Star-Lord, Ms. Marvel, Green Goblin, Wolverine, Cyclops, Psylocke, Magneto, Storm, Deadpool, Doctor Doom, Daredevil, Asura, Lady, Gill, Rashid, Captain Commando, Nina, Deis, Regina, Gene, Vergil, Akuma, and Apollo Justice.

    I did notice the curious aspect of that being 11 Marvel characters and 12 Capcom. Which would line up with the current unevenness. But when you add it all up, that's 23 characters, not 24. Meaning there's still a Capcom character I don't know about, since adding these all up carries it all the way to Season 5 if it's all in fact true and all the sources are correct in different ways.

    Four player 2 vs 2 mode is being added to the game, but I'm not sure when that is exactly going to be implemented.

    I will say that despite the controversies with Marvel and the Fantastic Four in games lately, I haven't heard anything regarding scrapping Doom completely from the plans. While he isn't in the plans for next year from what I've been told, it's not conclusive as to his exclusion in the long term.

    I guess it could be up to some people's interpretation what that means since he's not being added next year despite his popularity and all, but I wouldn't look too far into it just yet.
    This next section for MvCI gets absolutely wild and so I am dedicating its own section to it. I have one source that's told me some stuff that I feel I have to share in the event it is true, but it is pretty out there. Do not take me as backing all of this either. I'm just putting it out there in the event this has ANY TRUTH TO IT later. They claim the game will get a free update sometime around the summer of 2018 that adds Deadpool, Wolverine, Daredevil, Akuma, Gene, and Vergil as free characters.

    I will add that I was told by that same person that Regina was originally axed similarly to Ant-Man since both were actually planned to make it, but things came up that resulted in their discarding. Ant-Man in particular was due to technical issues like Frank West's on MvC3. I'm not totally sure what Regina's issue was, but I was told half jokingly that "it might be because of too many gun users." In spite of that, Ant-Man and Regina could pop up as DLC down the line since "some degree of work was done on her at an earlier point," and supposedly was picked back up on from what I've been told in Regina's case notably. And I was told she would/is going to be used to kind of crosspromote a Dino Crisis reboot. No one told me anything about Ant-Man since he was scrapped. But if the work is done and they wanted to approach him differently, I don't see why he couldn't make it back in. I've just heard nothing in regards to it yet. This same source was the only one who told me about Apollo Justice, which they claim is "unique" and utilizes Athena and Trucy in his moveset to some extents.

    They go on to claim game is also going to get some kind of patch to fix the graphics and art style to improve the visuals. The UI is included in things being touched up with that.

    When it comes to the roster, their goal is for MvCI to have "between 58 to 60 characters." Some things they're looking into adding include a Tournament Mode and a playable and balanced Ultron-Sigma patched in. A noteworthy thing about that is that they have some idea where you can have a boss character be your assist to compensate for no second character when playing as Ultron-Sigma.

    Some more story-related content is of course being planned, with additional content being added to the current story mode, and a brand new one announced at SDCC 2018, with plans of that new story stuff being added sometime around late 2018 to Spring 2019 at the absolute latest.

    I'll end this section by throwing in something strange (if what they claim wasn't already) that I was told of by that same source, and it's so dumb that if it is rooted in fact, I am utterly stupefied by it. They say that early on, Capcom apparently wanted a Power Stone character. In particular Edward Falcon or Rouge, but they were specifically set on Falcon. Marvel ultimately turned him down because "they didn't want confusion with their Falcon." They said that for whatever reason, Capcom didn't fight them on it (which comes as no surprise there given how the roster turned out if this is true) or decide to go with Rouge instead as the Power Stone rep. That's all I got from that source, so now I can finally move on from this game's section.

    Ain't nothin, Capcom's ruthless still producin.  Cut em a check or find yoself toothless.  Keep it shill with no confusin.  Niggas say I'm shill...they ain't hard I can prove it YEEEAH

    Seems like old news to me. Those Green Goblin & Gill’s playabilities for example.
