Watch the first story mode trailer

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite launches Sept. 19 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One, Capcom announced today. Alongside the game’s release date comes its first story trailer, above, which marks the first time that the two universes will truly collide outside of the franchise’s standard battle arena.

This game sees heroes from both sides uniting to take on a threat called Ultron Sigma, itself a villain made up of “the most menacing mechanoids from the Marvel and Capcom universes.”

Among the characters fighting to save the combined Marvel and Capcom worlds are Avengers like the Hulk, Thor and Hawkeye; Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy; and Chun-Li, Strider Hiryu and Chris Redfield from the Capcom side. Ultron will also be a playable fighter for the first time.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is now up for pre-order in several different editions, including Deluxe and Collector’s sets that come with a 2017 Character Pass. That will give owners access to six additional characters after launch, the first of which will be the deadly Sigma.
