Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite hasn’t even been out a week and we’re already seeing trailers for the game’s upcoming DLC characters. A day before the release of the game, Capcom officially announced the full roster of DLC characters coming out this year and today we get our first glimpse of Monster Hunter, one of the game’s first downloadable fighters. You can watch her character trailer above.
Just like her counterparts from the franchise she shares her name with, Monster Hunter enters the world of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite with armor and weapons crafted from the bodies of various creatures she’s defeated. And just like that game, Monster Hunter wields various weapons similar to the classes you’d find in the franchise. Her main attacks seem to mimic the classic strikes you’d see from players equipped with the Great Sword, Dual Blades and the Bow.
Her ability to use multiple weapon classes on the fly makes her seem like she’ll be one of the game’s most diverse characters. With the ability to dish out slow, powerful attacks and quick, multi-hit flurries, it’ll be interesting to see what she’s capable of when players get the chance to play her sometime this year.
Fans who buy the 2017 Character Pass for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will get instant access to Monster Hunter and the other confirmed DLC characters. There is no set launch date or individual character pricing available yet, however.
