One Of Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite’s Characters Could Have A Drinking Problem

We’re just a couple of months away from the release of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, and today, we learned a little bit more about the game from the official description of the Entertainment Software Rating Board, which indicates that a character may be capable of grabbing a quick drink in the midst of a round.

The ESRB rated the game T for Teen – which isn’t too much of a shock, considering past Marvel vs. Capcom games have gotten a similar rating – but the description of the rating lays things down with a few more details. Take a look:

“This is an arcade-style fighting game in which players control characters from the Marvel and Capcom universes. Players use kicks, punches, throws, and special abilities (e.g., fireballs, laser beams, electrical strikes) to drain opponents’ health meters in fast-paced two-on-two battles. Combat is highlighted by screen-shaking and slow-motion effects, cries of pain, and explosions. Small amounts of blood appear on zombie characters’ faces and/or clothing.”

Okay so that’s not a surprise. But…”A succubus character is depicted wearing an outfit that reveals large amounts of cleavage and portions of her buttocks. In one fight sequence, a character drinks a bottle of alcohol, gaining extra experience points; he is depicted making dry-heaving motions (i.e., attempting to vomit). The word ass appears in the dialogue.”

Now, the succubus description isn’t a real surprise, as Darkstalkers’ Morrigan was previously revealed to be part of the cast for the game. However, the interesting thing here is the drinking character. It indicates that it’s a male, so that leaves out Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel. So who could it be? Could another character be battling the bottle in the middle of their fight, or is the description hinting at a fighter that hasn’t been revealed for the roster yet?

Whatever the case, it sounds like the game is lining up closer to its release, and has plenty of punches, kicks and other features to go around. We just want to see how drinking soups up said character into getting new moves. It’d be the first time we’ve seen that in a fighting game for some time – the last example was, like, Shun Di from Virtua Fighter 2, we think.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite releases on September 19th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
