The next batch of characters for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite — Black Widow, Venom and Winter Soldier — are coming to the crossover fighting game on Dec. 5, Capcom confirmed today. A new trailer, embedded above, shows the trio of Marvel characters in action.

Black Widow, Venom and Winter Soldier are included as part of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite’s 2017 Character Pass. That add-on costs $29.99 and also includes previously released characters Black Panther, Sigma and Monster Hunter. Individual characters are priced at $7.99.

On the Capcom Unity website, Capcom offers a brief description of each new character:

Winter Soldier

As a skilled assassin, Winter Soldier has various ways to debilitate opponents and excels at ground combat. Using his cybernetic arm, he can activate Metal Shield, which provides him with enough armor to not only ignore hits, but to walk away unscathed. Though his move set is limited with Metal Shield active, the potential for devastating punishes is massive.


Returning to the series with some of his signature moves, Venom’s aggressive playstyle is further amplified in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. His new movement option is Venom Glide, a web zip of sorts, which can be aimed in six different directions, enabling him to keep the pressure going in his favor.

Black Widow

Black Widow’s gauntlets can fire off different projectiles that range from a sticky bomb to one that emits a nerve gas, which crumples the opponent. With the unique ability to perform evasive maneuvers, catching Black Widow will not be easy.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is available now for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. Capcom will host a free demo weekend later this week, running from Friday, Nov. 24 at 8 a.m PST to Monday, Nov. 27 at 8 a.m. PST. The demo is available only on on PS4 for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
