During their Marvel vs. Capcom panel at San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that Capcom is planning to improve the appearance of Chun-Li. The announcement came from Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono. This is a direct answer to the fan outcry that started pretty much as soon as first visual materials from the game were made public. Many fans were extremely unhappy with how Chun-Li looked.
Ever since the first trailers for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, fans have been extremely unhappy with the design of Chun-Li. More specifically, they thought that her face looked weird. To be honest, there’s no denying that the new design radically changed Chun-Li’s facial features, and fans were up in arms about it.
Well, fortunately for everybody that wouldn’t stand for Chun-Li’s new face, Capcom has listened to their feedback. There’s still a fair amount of time left until the game comes out, so the developers will devote part of it to improving her facial characteristics. During the Marvel vs. Capcom panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Yoshinori Ono of Capcom addressed the Chun-Li concerns. Here’s what he had to say (via Gamespot):
The development team is hard at work finishing the game for the September 19 release date, and based off the feedback we heard, we are currently making improvements to Chun-Li as well as other Capcom characters. Since the work is still in progress, we don’t have anything final to show you just yet, but stay tuned.
So, there you have it. Chun-Li will get a face-lift before the game launches in September. That wasn’t the only Marvel vs. Capcom announcement from Comic-Con. They also revealed four new characters that we’ll be able to play as. We can look forward to Spider-Man, Frank West, Nemesis, and Frank Haggar.
