X-Man down?


Story, typ­i­cally of sec­ondary in­ter­est in Cap­com fight­ing games, will play a more cen­tral role in

In­fi­nite. “Story is at the core of ev­ery­thing Marvel does to­day,” says Marvel Games cre­ative di­rec­tor Bill

Roseman. “We want to ex­plore how th­ese char­ac­ters from two dif­fer­ent uni­verses are com­ing to­gether.” That nar­ra­tive chal­lenge es­ca­lates with the in­tro­duc­tion of char­ac­ters from ever more di­verse se­ries. Then there’s the is­sue of fans’ ex­pec­ta­tions. Cur­rently no X-Men char­ac­ters have been an­nounced, and Wolver­ine’s ab­sence in par­tic­u­lar has been of con­cern for longterm fans of the games, “As far as X-Men go,” says Evans, “let’s just say we’re well aware of our his­tory and legacy with this fran­chise. That’s not lost on us.”
