E3 Trailers have been released for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, and along with a new batch of announced character we fans of the Strider series got one unexpected surprise: Grandmaster Meio is part of the story mode!
As seen in the Story Trailer 3, Grandmaster Meio is one of the villains in the story holding one of the six Infinity Stones (the Power Stone) in the depths of "Knomoon", a location made of the merging of the Knowhere from Guardians of the Galaxy and the Third Moon, and he's also "rewritten the core routines" of Mega Man X's comrade Zero to make him his subordinate. Meio appears with his latest design as debuted in the 2014 Strider.
There hasn't been any confirmation over whether he's part of the roster, a future DLC or simply a non-playable enemy character created for the story mode. But regardless, it's really nice to know Hiryu is not the only one repping his series.
Hopefully we'll know more soon!
