Black Widow and Monster Hunter joining Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite’s DLC

Along with Venom and Winter Solider

Chelsea Stark (she/her), executive editor, has been covering video games for more than a decade.

With Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite due out tomorrow, Capcom announced the full roster for the game’s first group of DLC characters.

We already knew Black Panther and Mega Man X’s Sigma would be part of the game’s DLC, but Black Widow, Winter Soldier, a female Monster Hunter and Venom will also join the title, fleshing out the game’s additional characters for the rest of the year.

Black Widow’s addition is particularly exciting, as she was one of the few main members of the Avengers to be excluded from the game’s original 30-character roster. It’s also interesting to note that of these six characters, four come from Marvel’s universe, tipping the balance in its favor from an originally 50/50 Capcom/Marvel roster.

While the Monster Hunter appears in the game’s story (hanging out with Black Panther, no less), we don’t know what form the other three characters will take. Capcom did release renderings of Sigma and Black Panther on its Unity blog today.

There is no set price for these six characters, either individually or as a season pass,. Purchasing the Deluxe Edition of Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite for $89.99 will unlock them all as they are made available.
