‘Marvel vs Capcom,’ Joker spied in ‘Injustice 2’ list
Releasing on September 19 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC will be “Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite,” the latest edition of a fighting game franchise that calls upon comic book and video game characters to staff its roster.
Rocket Raccoon (voiced by bradley Cooper in Guardians of the Galaxy and its May 5 sequel “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) will feature as one of several newer additions to the franchise in “MvC Infinite.”
He returns from 2011’s “Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3,” with both Captain Marvel (to star in her own film in 2019) and 2015’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” antagonist Ultron brand new for “MvC Infinite.”
Just as entertainment company Marvel and video game house Capcom combine for the ongoing franchise, Ultron and “Mega Man” villain Sigma—like Ultron, new for “Infinite”—will also join forces to become Ultron Sigma, as shown in a first story trailer for the game.
That incentivizes the purchase of an additional batch of extra characters, not included in the launch game, of which Sigma is one.
Over in DC Comics fighting game adaptation “Injustice 2,” a much nearer prospect with its May 15 release on PS4 and XBO (plus iOS and Android), Batman bad guy, the Joker, has been confirmed for inclusion via a list of in-game achievements.
When performed, two specific feats unlock virtual badges, and both finishing moves involve the Joker, according to xboxachievements.com.
Other characters like Brainiac, Darkseid, Scarecrow, Supergirl, Robin and Poison Ivy are all also featured in previous “Injustice 2” material from Warner Bros, while Joker, remains an enigma for fans who wish to unlock his mysterious secrets. KI
