On Wednesday, fighting game fans were treated with two scoops of DLC news from the popular fighting games Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite and Injustice 2.
These trailers weren’t a total surprise as the characters were expected to make an appearance in their games, but the curiosity of what they can bring to the table kept the attention of their fans.
Here’s the breakdown of the trailers released this week.
Atom: Injustice 2
It was easy to spot that the Atom would be a DLC in the game as his silhouette featured him in his shrunken pose, but I’m sure that gamers didn’t expect to see him before the release of Hellboy’s trailer.
However, the new character didn’t disappoint as the creators utilize not only his ability to shrink but to also grow in his fighting style.
His costume is close to his original one in the comics but with the ability to add armor, there’s a chance the television version of his suit be available like Green Arrow in the first Injustice
No word on when he will be released, but he will be the first to be available when the next fighter DLC pack becomes available.

These two characters, as mentioned numerous times, were already expected to make their appearance in the game following the final trailer. The gameplay trailer shows that Black Panther and Sigma are not just good themselves but as a team.
Panther is quick with his agility and crazy air-attacks and Sigma is more of the powerhouse to keep opponents grounded. Despite how good Panther is in action, he can’t take the place of Wolverine as it feels that’s his replacement.
There’s been a battle of getting the rights to use X-Men characters in the game from Sony as it originally put a halt to the game’s production. In the end, the game is doing well without the X-Men and open the door for new characters like Black Widow and Winter Soldier.
These characters, along with Monster Hunter, will be available on October 17.

It was just announced that the most requested version of the game will be hitting stores on Jan. 16, 2018.
Executive producer Yoshinori Ono revealed in a message to fans that the arcade edition of Street Fighter V will come in two forms. A physical copy with all of season 1 and 2 characters and stages included, and as an update for those who already own the game.
In addition to the arcade feature, a new battle mode and new V-triggers will be added to the characters. This will make fans who already own the game happy as they are getting an update rather than buying a new game altogether.
The only question is for those who already own the game, would they receive all the characters and stages as well if they didn’t buy them before? I guess time will tell.
The arcade edition’s physical copy will cost $39.99, sorry, you can’t use your fight money to buy this one.
Now that the holiday season is around the corner, expect the wish list to get bigger as more news regarding these titles will be released as the season of updates and additions are coming to an end.
