Retro fans are in for a treat today: Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is now available on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network. Haven't been following? The "game" is actually two games smashed together: Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes (apparently there wasn't much clashing in the first one?), effectively taking you back to where the series began.
Capcom claims the titles are preserved as "arcade perfect", but with some added benefits like GGPO-enhanced online play (I assume that's good), 8-player lobbies, spectator mode, HD graphics, challenges, and replay saving. In short, the best of the old and new are combined -- at least that's what they tell me.
To get a good feel for it, check the oddly not-HD trailer below, which sports about a minute of gameplay footage.
Origins is available now for $15 / 1200 Microsoft Points.
