The Marvel vs. Capcom franchise (commonly referred to as Marvel for short) has been a fixture at Evo since the series inception. The cutthroat action, hypnotically flowing combos that never seem to end, the unbelievably high level of play in competition and even the glee with which it is commentated have always made it a crowd favorite. Marvel tournaments are a wild ride, even if you dont always know exactly whats going on during play.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is a solid fighting game with a healthy tournament crowd, despite its low sales. Its also a fun watch, and quite worthy of top-level competition on a world stage for at least one years Evo.
But the situation surrounding it is more complicated than that.
