Few fighting games in the 90′s were as popular as Marvel vs. Capcom, and the chance to relive the good ol’ days (at least in Europe) has just been given a launch date (with a North American date likely soon to follow, of course). Capcom today announced Marvel vs Capcom: Origins will be available for download in Europe on PlayStation Network on September 25th for €14.99/£11.99 and on Xbox LIVE Arcade on September 26th for 1200 Microsoft Points.
MARVEL VS. CAPCOM ORIGINS is a compilation of two of the most popular arcade games of the ‘90s – Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes. These two classic games are kept arcade-perfect, while adding a host of features sure to tap into arcade nostalgia while meeting today’s online needs. MARVEL VS. CAPCOM ORIGINS is jam-packed with Marvel and Capcom fan-favourite characters and crazy, beloved gameplay that throws a powerful punch.
After all this tomfoolery with Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 and Capcom’s undying ability to release 20 versions of the same game, going back to the classics is just what we need right now. Hopefully we will hear word of a North American release soon. I could really go for it.
