The new Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite trailer debuted at E3 during Sony's showcase, and while it didn't have a lot of character news in it, it did bring the hot character-of-the-moment, Black Panther, into the fray. We also saw much more of the Infinity Stone-based story and some fun cross-universe team-ups that should get fans' blood pumping.

The story features Ultron, trying to use the power of the Infinity Stones to merge the universes of Capcom (um, as if everyone in their game library lives in one world), and Marvel. Opposing him is a coalition of warriors from both worlds; in fact, this is more like Marvel and Capcom than "vs.", with Chun Li, Mega Man, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, and more making appearances. The strange bedfellows team continues, though, as Thanos joins up with knowledge of where the Infinity Stones are located.

Perhaps the bigger news is that a story demo for the game is available today on both PS4 and Xbox One, so fans can get their own taste of what's to come. The Deluxe Edition, also announced, includes six new DLC characters, including Black Panther (yeah, he's DLC, no, we're not thrilled either), and six premium costumes.

Check out the new trailer below, download the demo, and get ready for September 19, 2017 when you can take on Ultron yourself.
