Marvel vs. Capcom 2 could be about to return to the scene, probably on modern platforms such as PS5, Xbox Series X | S, PC and other consoles, with Disney e Capcom that seem intent on producing some sort of remaster of the second chapter in the series of cross-over fighting games between the two worlds in question.
The idea isn’t quite far-fetched and comes straight from Mike Mika, head of the Digital Eclipse team who has dealt in the past with various ports and adaptations of original Disney titles and also Capcom such as Aladdin and The Lion King, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, Mega Man Legacy Collection and The Disney Afternoon Collection.
Given the close relationship with both Capcom and Disney, Mika is likely a source to be reckoned with and recently reported that the companies seem to have rather taken into consideration the public’s attention to a possible return of Marvel vs. Capcom 2.
Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is still a graphically remarkable title, with its 2D style drawn
The question started above all with the “# FREEMVC2” campaign, a sort of awareness initiated by numerous users on Twitter for the return of the fighting game and, according to Mika, it seems that Capcom and Disney have been listening on this topic and we have started communications between them.
However, it is not a simple operation: considering the complicated management of all licenses present within the original, according to Mika it is possible that even for this reason alone the production costs of a Marvel vs. Capcom 2 could even surpass those of the development of the original, also considering all the technical adaptation and improvement work to be carried out.
For those who don’t remember, Marvel vs. Capcom 2 has remained in the hearts of many gamers being the latest installment in the series of fighting game to maintain the classic setting also from the point of view of the 2D graphics drawn, which is still of great impact today. Moreover, it is still a very popular fighting game, so much so that it was also used during the EVO 2020 in the official lineup, replacing Mortal Kombat 11.
