Developers reportedly in talks for Marvel vs Capcom 2 revival project

Unless we’re all being taken for a ride

One of the most beloved fighting games of all time, Marvel vs Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes, might be in line for a fresh revival, according to remaster squad and long-time Capcom associates Digital Eclipse. The developer has reportedly reached out to the bigwigs at both Capcom and Disney with an eye to licensing a remaster/remake of the smash hit.

“We’ve begun some discussions on that right now and we’re trying to see how far we can go. But ultimately, at the end of the day, it’s really not up to us,” said DE’s Mike Mika, speaking in an interview with YouTube channel GamerHubTV. “So all we can really do is just make the best case possible and try to make it easy for them, and see if they’re interested.”

Released in 2000 to the arcade and home console market, Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (or simply “MvC2“) sees some of the raddest characters from Marvel comics face off with a wild roster of Capcom veterans, including characters from the Street Fighter and Darkstalkers series, as well as older Capcom classics such as 1984 release SonSon. With fast-paced action, deep fighting mechanics, an electric soundtrack, and plenty of custom strategy options, MvC2 took the fighting game scene by storm and is still played competitively the world over — some two decades on from its initial release.

A port of MvC2 launched on PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2009, but has since been removed due to licensing issues follow Disney’s purchase of Marvel Comics. It is these exact licensing issues that are preventing a rerelease, remaster, or remake of the classic fighter from coming to fruition. As such, Digital Eclipse is hoping that some sort of red-tape-clearing agreement can be reached between the developer, Capcom, and The House of Mouse in order to kickstart any form of Marvel vs Capcom 2 revival.

And that’s a lot of red tape to clear, so don’t hold your breath on this one just yet.

A good remaster that touched up the graphics and maybe added content would be amazing!
