The Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Collector’s Edition stands out as the definitive version of the universe-crashing fighting game mash-up. While it’s a bit pricey, this special release is jam-packed with exclusive items that are certain to appeal to gamers, superhero fans, and collectors alike.
So what makes the comparatively extravagant Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Collector’s Edition so desirable? For starters, the set comes with plenty of digital and physical bonuses. Downloadable extras consist of the Character Pass, which grants access to six playable characters including Black Panther and Sigma along with four more that will be available after the game’s release. Each of the six characters will come with a premium costume as well. Buyers that pre-ordered the game also received Evil Ryu, Warrior Thor, Mega Man Command X and Gladiator Hulk costumes as well.
While the digital items that come with the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Collector’s Edition help to justify the premium set’s significantly higher price tag (relative to the standard disc and download), the physical items are the clear centerpiece. In addition to a special Steelbook metal disc case, diorama statues of Iron Man, Chun-Li, Captain Marvel, and Mega Man are also included. Manufactured by renowned collectible manufacturer Tri-Force, each of the 1/10th scale figures is beautifully sculpted and painted and comes permanently affixed to a base that is designed to resemble a segment of Asgard’s Bifrost Highway.
The Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Collector’s Edition also comes with a display case that contains pulsating LED-illuminated replicas of the (Space, Mind, Reality, Power, Soul, and Time) Infinity Stones.
Capcom’s high-end Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Collector’s Edition began shipping on September 19, 2017 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $199.99 USD. It released alongside digital download and disc-based versions of the game that hit current generation Sony and Microsoft consoles.
