The latest updates for "#Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite" will feature two returning characters added to the roster and details on the Day 1 patch for the sequel.

Dormammu and Firebrand added

Marvel comics released several comic book variant covers this month which featured one-on-one showdowns between Marvel and Capcom characters. One of these covers teased the next two playable fighters in "Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite."

The next characters are Doctor Strange main antagonist #Dormammu and #Firebrand from the "Ghost N' Goblins" game. The two first debut in "Marvel vs. Capcom 3" and they became instant fan favorites within the series.

Dormammu and Firebrand were first spotted in the leaked roster list of the game, and so far, the list proved to be a valid piece of information since characters like Thanos, Gamora, Frank West, Mike Haggar, Jeddah, and Nemesis are confirmed in the game.

IGN reported that Capcom would showcase both fighters in the next gameplay soon, so gaming fans will just have to wait patiently for further announcement. The Japanese publisher previously released a gameplay trailer at San Diego Comic-Con.

Aside from the two returning characters, two heroes are also likely to make their appearance in the sequel. Two variant covers revealed Jane Foster's version of Thor and Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales joining the "MvCI" roster. It is unknown if the two will be character skins for Thor and Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the game.

Perhaps the publisher will explain that too once the Firebrand and Dormammu gameplay trailer launches.

Day 1 patch update

Capcom announced a Day 1 patch update for "Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite" as it will fix the designs of some of the character models in the roster. Game producer Mike Evans noticed how bad the character models are in the sequel after receiving negative feedbacks from the fan who have played the free PS4 demo.

"It's interesting to see the feedback on that kind of stuff. Not to say that the fans are wrong or nitpicking stuff like that," Evan said. "That feedback is coming, and we hear that feedback, and we're taking it in stride and figuring out how we can improve things.

Gaming fans were not happy with the motion designs of Chun-Li and Dante in the game, posting several comparison photos of the two from their respective games and the designs in the new crossover fighting title.

The sequel will launch on Sept. 19 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
