Captain America makes his return in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. As he dons his "movie universe" costume.
He appears in Story Trailer 1 alongside other heroes from both Marvel and Capcom universes and with the Avengers as they fight Ultron-Sigma's forces in Asgard. He is taken down by Ultron-Sigma when he lands and the latter takes his shield and throws it at Thor. Captain America also perform a different Hyper Combo Level 3 called Unyielding Justice.
"During WWII, a covert military experiment turned scrawny Steve Rogers into a super-soldier. With strength, leadership, and a Vibranium shield, he fought for freedom as Captain America! Presumed dead towards the end of the war, he was found frozen in ice decades later and awoke into a different era. Having already been thrust into a new world, he may be the least fazed by the fusion of our universes."
Captain America has received a few new tools in his arsenal: Trick Shield and Unyielding Justice.
Trick Shield is variantion of Captain America's Shield Slash, which has him throwing his shield in an angle for some distance before immediately returning to him like like Shield Slash since (Ultimate) Marvel vs. Capcom 3:
- The L version is similar to Shield Slash's original L version and being its replacement due to Shield Slash L revert to its M version like in Marvel vs. Capcom 2
- The H version act as an anti-air projectile.
Unyielding Justice is his replacement Hyper Combo for Final Justice. It's a Level 3 Hyper Combo that has Captain America launching his opponent into the air before charging at them.
Captain America is first with various other heroes 88 days after convergence on Xgard to distract Ultron Sigma and "their" forces and rescue Thanos on suicide mission. able to retrieve Thanos, they retreat back to the Avengers Tower, in which he feuds with Iron Man, not supporting the release of Thanos from his bounds. However, the heroes settle the differences and splits up to find the respective Infinity Stones, while Iron Man, Hawkeye, Dr. Light and Spencer guards Thanos.
He, Chun-Li, Ryu and Hulk goes to Valkanda to require Black Panther's help due to the king has a Time Stone on his hand safely, but only to be found by Ultron Sigma's drone and the Ultron Sigma virus infected Dah'ren Mohran. Once the heroes, along with Valkanda's female Monster Hunter defends Valkanda safely, Black Panther told the heroes that he and Monster Hunter cannot join them to defeat Ultron Sigma and must stay on low from that fused Maverick robots, but gave them the Time Stone as a gratitude and wisdom.
