Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 Revealed, Demo Exclusive to PSN!

John Diamonon's Avatar Posted by Product Marketing Manager, Capcom

I Wanna Take YoU 4 A Ride this Thursday!

What’s up P-Essers? I’m here today to announce the imminent arrival of one of the worst kept secrets in the industry. You’ve seen the ESRB leak. You’ve seen the MadCatz joysticks. You probably visited a cryptic sight called www.tu4ar.com that just counted down to zero.

If you’ve been paying attention to my blogs and interviews, I’ve been leaking info about this day for quite some time. We conducted this Gamespot poll back in March of 2008 to gauge interest on what games you want to see us bring back. We listened to your feedback and tried to work quietly on the project. Well, as you know, I’m not the quiet type (the PR Ninjas here don’t like me so much). There was this MTV interview in June of last year, my PS blog on August 14th alluding to a Street Fighter surprise, and numerous blogs after that teasing this announcement.

So what’s the announcement? Here it is, officially:

Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 Summer 2009

Yes that’s right. Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 will finally arrive on PSN this summer! For more information on the full game, go visit Capcom-Unity.com.

But wait, there’s more. Here’s the freaking ace up our sleeve:

Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 Store Banner

This Thursday, April 30, PlayStation Network users will enjoy a free, exclusive MVC2 demo! No need to purchase another game, just download it straight to your PS3 and get ready for some triple tag team action (A big thank you goes out to Rommel Hernandez who helped make this exclusive demo possible).

Here are the details of the demo:

  • Two-player local matches
  • Six available characters – Ryu, Chun-Li, Strider, Spider-Man, Iron Man and Wolverine
  • Seven selectable environments
  • Upscaled 1080p graphics
  • Widescreen or 4:3 aspect ratio
  • Two graphic filter options for character sprites
  • And other cool options to check out

Make sure you visit www.tu4ar.com for the latest MVC2 news and follow us on Twitter for special promotions and prizes!

And I’ll leave you with one last, cool little video, exclusive to the PlayStation Blog. This is an alternate music version of the trailer on tu4ar.com.

Enjoy!

From your friendly neighborhood Capcom employee,

John “HIERO 9D3” Diamonon

Whoever keeps including these classic 80’s songs in Capcom fighting game trailers should get an immediate raise.

Awesome. As a possible future expansion, consider the following awesomeness – Marvel vs Capcom vs DC. Oh yeah, bring on the DLC.

John,

Whoever came up with the idea to use that music in the trailer (and the Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Trailers) deserves a raise.

Never really played Marvel vs Capcom, but I’ll definately check it out. BTW are we ever gonna hear anything about the first dead rising coming to ps3? Sorry, just had to ask.

neojehuty said:

April 27th, 6:31 pm

Whoa MvC2 is back baby!!! This is the best news like forever!!! And exclusive to PSN, SWEET!!!!!!! THANK YOU CAPCOM!!

Axecution said:

April 27th, 6:31 pm

…price? >.>

This is one of those things that could be sold for as low as 4.99 up to 29.99.

Very awesome. Now, all you have to do is put one of the Darkstalkers games on the PSN. If there’s a fighting game series I miss, it’s that one. The presence of the Darkstalkers characters put Cross Edge on my must-buy list. Hell, I guarantee you that if you guys ever did an HD remix of Nightwarriors or Vampire Savior 2, it would build up enough hype for a full-fledged Darkstalkers sequel.

Anyway, while I haven’t really been that big of a fan of MVC2 in the past (I was disappointed at the lack of a story mode), I’ll most likely pick this one up. Online versus mode sounds like it might be a lot of fun with 56 characters. Of course, it’ll probably all be Ken’s. ;)

Sounds good. Ok Time to work on some combos in mugen…

Serious though I’m gettin this.

    and i love you, in a totally hetero way..

DNAgent said:

April 27th, 6:33 pm

So no HD remixed characters (like SF2HDR had)? If all it is a widescreen version of MvC2 with online multiplayer then I won’t even buy it.

ThreeLeggedFreak said:

April 27th, 6:34 pm

John,

Why are you guys canceling PSP games? DMC PSP was canceled and I’m sure I’m not alone in saying I wanted it. The PSP is the ONLY current gen system not to get a Resident Evil game, what’s up with that? You think PSP owners only want Monster Hunter? Monster Hunter sucks, give me Resident Evil. :)

Wafi24 said:

April 27th, 6:34 pm

Cool John will there be a release of Snk vs. Capcom those games are awesome. Also when will the trophies be realeased for STF 2 HD remix still waiting on them please John my best friend answer question please and thank you.

    April 27th, 6:45 pm

    no plans for SNK. trophies were never promised for SFHD and aren\’t going to be implemented…

Stoffinator said:

April 27th, 6:34 pm

We get an exclusive demo? Cool, probably means the 360 gets a better game and dlc.

SHINSPIKES said:

April 27th, 6:34 pm

Whoa whoa whoa!! The psn just went into overload. Now I don’t have to deal wit all the cheapazzes in SF4 (all you fireballin, dragonpunchin noobs). Those little tricks don’t work in this game!! A few questions though. How do you make it lag free, or just a little (SF4 has bad lag, I have good connection)? Will it be just an arcade port, or dreamcast or ps2? Not redrawn, but upscaled and smooth out, right? And my request are, voice chat and rooms with multiple people, not just 1 on 1. But, most of all, make the gameplay fast, accurate and lag free. Thankyou.

P.S. Don’t forget free Home stuff for purchasin the game, or unlockin.

Link01 said:

Wafi24 said:

April 27th, 6:42 pm

angelcoma said:

April 27th, 6:44 pm

Hey John, thanks for the post. I guess I’ll go for PSN version.

Thanks for the continued updates.

DMPrince said:

April 27th, 6:44 pm

Why no online for this? to do a online test. SFII Turbo was pretty bad when you hit those lags!

    If you think the net code for turbo was bad, well heck..

Fersis said:

April 27th, 6:44 pm

CrimsonFox13 said:

April 27th, 6:46 pm

I love you Diamonon. And the Curleh Mustache.

I wanted a Powerstone 2, though! Is there any chance that will come out? I loved Powerstone… But I won’t complain, though, I’m happy that MvC2 is coming out!

SHINSPIKES said:

April 27th, 6:47 pm

How bout capcom vs snk 2 HD remix? Maybe yah can let snk do the sprite drawing, since they are so hardcore into it right now. Hmm, Hmm?

JuanDHexen said:

April 27th, 6:48 pm

Oh Capcom you guys are the best, I have been looking for this game fir years. Thank you,Thank you,Thank you.

KSPRAYDAD said:

April 27th, 6:50 pm

Bionic Commando demo?

Announcement that Lost Planet 2 is on PS3?

Monster Hunter for PS3?

I guess I’m one to hold a grudge and will just play this on my Dreamcast until Capcom’s supposed agnostic position becomes real.

BurgerTyme said:

Is this going to be similar to SF2 HDR in the way that the animations are being remade or is it going to be the direct DC Version??
