In­fi­nite combo

EDGE - - HYPE -

Be­fore he was a Cap­com pro­ducer, Peter Rosas was bet­ter known to fight­ing-game fans as Com­bofiend. As a tour­na­ment player, he was famed for his spec­tac­u­lar come­backs – with one par­tic­u­lar MVC3 vic­tory, play­ing as Bionic Com­mando’s Spencer, liv­ing long in the mem­ory. How does he feel to be part of the team that kills off the very game that got him his job? “It’s bit­ter­sweet,” he says. “As some­one who Bionic Armed his way into Cap­com, I love the game. But as the game stays out longer and longer, the com­mu­nity gets smaller and smaller. But I know those same guys are go­ing to love In­fi­nite. It has the com­plex­i­ties, the strat­egy, the ex­cite­ment of a Ver­sus game. And now you have a pos­si­ble in­flux of new play­ers – a new breed. That’s ex­cit­ing.”
