Marvel vs. Capcom Origins coming September 25th

We've been hearing about Marvel vs. Capcom Origins since at least July, but now we can confirm the classics compilation is getting released to PSN and XBLA, for $15 and 1200 MS points, September 25th. Expect a marked decrease in productivity from our usually prolific staff member Jeremy Duff, as I'm sure he'll be putting his custom arcade sticks to good use when this collection hits XBLA. This is the first time we're getting Marvel Super Heroes for download, and if you already have Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on XBLA or PSN this fills out the collection nicely. Now, if only we could get X-Men: Children of the Atom.



MARVEL VS. CAPCOM ORIGINS Launch Dates Confirmed

We’re pleased to confirm that the previously announced MARVEL® VS. CAPCOM® ORIGINS will be available to download in North America on PlayStation Network on September 25th for $14.99 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-favorite characters and crazy, beloved gameplay that throws a powerful punch.

MARVEL VS. CAPCOM ORIGINS offers both the one-on-one gameplay of Marvel Super Heroes with its unique Infinity Gem system and the two-on-two carnage of the original Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes, featuring a tag system, assists, and the wild Duo Team Attack. Bringing forth a host of features never before seen in these games, MARVEL VS. CAPCOM ORIGINS adds GGPO-enhanced online play with 8-player lobbies and spectator mode, HD graphical upgrades, dynamic challenges and replay saving.
