Groot has been confirmed for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, sort of.
Rocket Raccoon’s sidekick in Guardians of the Galaxy makes an appearance in a quick teaser posted on the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Twitter account.

The video shows off the wise-cracking, gun-toting anthropomorphic raccoon’s super move in the game, which includes Groot smacking his opponent around. This would be the first time Groot has made an appearance in the series. It is not clear if he will be a playable character.
Rocket Raccoon was one of many confirmed characters in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite last week, including Thor, Hulk, Chris Redfield, Chun-Li, and more. Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite marks his second appearance in the series after debuting in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
