[edit] Background

Marvel VS Capcom 2 features the biggest roster of challengers to ever square off in a Capcom fighting game, a total of 56 combined brawlers from both the Capcom and Marvel universes. From the world of Capcom comes characters such as Ryu from the Street Fighter series, Jill Valentine from the Resident Evil® games and unofficial company mascot Mega Man. Marvel is represented by some of its biggest names, including the Invincible Iron Man, Captain America, the Sentinel of Liberty, and War Machine, Weapon of S.H.I.E.L.D. Players can mix and match from both worlds in order to create their own ideal three man/woman/robot/monster team-up.

Due to the amazing combination of Marvel and Capcom characters and the game’s celebrated fighting system and graphics, MvC2 has been a hotly sought-after title on the game collector’s circuit. Previously owned copies for older game consoles have been demanding more than $100 in auctions and at specialty video game outlets. Now players who have been desperately searching out used copies of the game will be able to go hands-on and play online with the same great online experience from Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. Additionally, Capcom has added an optional advanced visual filter that improves the overall appearance of the game and added online modes, including Ranked Matches and the popular Player “Quarter” Match, that allows up to four people to watch and chat while two others are battling it out.

[edit] Game Play

Fans asked, and Capcom listened! One of the most popular fighting games of all time arrives on Xbox LIVE® Arcade. MARVEL™ VS. CAPCOM® 2 brings legendary characters from throughout Marvel and Capcom history to duke it out in an insane tag-team fighting experience. From Ryu to Wolverine, pit your favorite heroes in dream match-ups thanks to an unprecedented 56-character roster. With all new online play, take the fight across the globe and decide who really has the best "dream team." Widescreen support, enhanced HD graphics, and a robust leaderboard makes one of the best fighting games even better!

Marvel VS Capcom 2 is designed to be a gateway for new players to experience the fun of fighting games while providing a deep system for hardcore fighting fans to dig into. Action is based around colourful, exaggerated attacks that include gigantic projectile attacks (such as Ryu’s fireball or Dr. Doom’s Plasma Beam) and high-flying aerial moves (like Spider-Man’s Maximum Spider or Cammy’s Killer Bee Attack). The controls are somewhat simplified from the classic six-button system at the heart of Capcom games like Street Fighter IV, utilizing a four-button control scheme for the action, with two “assist” buttons that pull in your team members for additional support.

[edit] Features

  • Tons of characters: Over 50 classic characters are featured from the Marvel and Capcom universes.
  • Unique fighting: Try 3-on-3 tag-team matches, and the new online matching mode, including the "Quarter Match" mode from Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix.
  • Accessibility: Four button controls introduce new players to the joy of fighting games.
  • New visuals: The new optional visual filter smoothes out the game's graphics.
