Spidey swings into cross­over fighter

New fight­ers for Marvel Vs. Cap­com: Infinite

PlayStation Official Magazine (UK) - - THE BIG10 -

Are you ready for some hot tag-team tus­sling? With less than a month to go be­fore the char­ac­ters of Cap­com wage war with their Marvel coun­ter­parts, more char­ac­ters are get­ting ready to join the im­pend­ing bat­tle royal, and they’re no C-tier chumps ei­ther. Spi­der-Man, Ghost Rider, and Gamora are the new Marvel he­roes; Hag­gar from Final Fight, Dead Ris­ing’s Frank West, and Neme­sis from Res­i­dent Evil 3 make up the Cap­com con­tin­gent.

MIND THE STAMP

Gamora was used to show­case the new Mind In­fin­ity Stone. This gem en­ables fight­ers to per­form grap­ple at­tacks that leave op­po­nents dazed. Its ‘In­fin­ity Storm’ means your Hype gauge will con­tin­u­ously fill dur­ing the bout for more spe­cial moves.

Spidey is an ag­ile fighter whose spe­cial at­tack webs up op­po­nents be­fore he swings them over his head and into the floor. He wouldn’t be the wall crawler with­out witty one-lin­ers punc­tu­at­ing his punches, and this ver­sion doesn’t dis­ap­point.

Frank West is a more mal­leable fighter who’ll level up dur­ing fights. He might start with lower dam­age and reach, but taking pic­tures through­out the round helps him in­crease his power.

Then come the big boys. Hag­gar is on the slower side, but his long-range at­tacks help ad­dress that weak­ness, and his piledriver super looks like it’s a one-way ticket to headache cen­tral for the un­lucky fool on the re­ceiv­ing end of it.

Fi­nally, there’s Res­i­dent Evil 3’s ter­ri­fy­ing Neme­sis to round out the new ad­di­tions. He’s the slow­est char­ac­ter in the ros­ter, but he makes up for that with pow­er­ful at­tacks and, you know, a bazooka.

All these new ad­di­tions leave us sali­vat­ing like a Marvel fan trapped in a lift with Stan Lee.

Marvel Vs. Cap­com: Infinite will fling its way onto PS4 on 19 Septem­ber.

Spins a web, smacks some guys. Squashes dweebs, just like flies.

Gamora is join­ing the crew. Will she side with her es­tranged daddy, Thanos?
