For literally years now, there’s been rumors swirling online about a new Marvel vs. Capcom game, but Capcom’s already done all of their big announcements this month where MvC was not among them.
That didn’t stop a supposed reveal trailer for Marvel vs. Capcom 4: The Return of Heroes from popping up, but of course, it’s another fake.
Created by the channel Twenty Two, the fan trailer showcases Ryu, Wolverine, Mega Man X and Miles Morales Spider-Man before cutting to the logo.
If the “this is just a concept” text at the end didn’t give it away, the fact that the trailer appears to use the Fortnite models for the characters aside from X should be a clear indicator.
Some fans may have still been fooled at first glance though because others began trolling and sharing the video on social media without the ending
At this point, if a new MvC game is ever actually announced, people probably won’t beliebe it at first considering MvC4 has been the most faked and rumored fighting game in recent history.
Starting back in late 2018, a prominent leaker stated that Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was being overhauled by the developers and would be rebranded as Marvel vs. Capcom 4.
That was seemingly further backed up by former Evo champion Filipino Champ sharing a handful of tweets apparently teasing MvC4’s existence in early 2019, but it’s now been over 3 years with no official announcements coming out of Capcom.
All of these and other fake leaks do at least go to show that fighting game fans are still hopeful and hungry for a new game, so hopefully that void will be filled at some point.
In the meantime though, the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 modding community has been kicking it into high gear adding a ton of brand new characters to the game — so maybe the fans will just continue having to take matters into their own hands.
