Why Capcom didn't and won't re-release the "Other" Marvel Vs. games
Capcom can't re-release X-Men vs. Street Fighter because Activision still holds the rights to the X-Men games titles. The reason we won't be getting Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter is because it's the weakest installment in the Marvel Vs. library.
It's been confirmed by Capcom's representative "Sven" that X-Men vs. Street Fighter nor Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter won't be included in Marvel vs. Capcom Origins for the following reasons.
The first is pretty obvious, but it's been confirmed that X-Men vs. Street Fighter won't be included because the name "X-Men" appears in the game's title and Activision holds the rights to the name brand of X-Men titles. The reason Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter won't be included is because Capcom feels it's the weakest and most lacking of the Marvel Vs. series, which is actually true.
As a member of the fighting game community I'm fine with the two titles we'll be receiving in Marvel vs. Capcom Origins. Marvel Super Heroes is really where Capcom made the foundation of the whole Marvel Vs. series (building upon Children of the Atom of course) and Marvel vs. Capcom is basically a improved version of Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter. All in all, I'd say we got the better games, but that's just my opinion.
Here's the trailer of Marvel vs. Capcom Origins if you haven't seen it yet.
What a shame!
I really hope they release another origins set with SF:Alpha 2, Children of the Atom, and then X-men vs Street fighter. In my opinion, that is the beginning origins of the series, but of course, that can't happen as of now.
Marvel Super Heroes and MvC are easily the best two. MSH for it's awesome gem system and MvC being the final version of the crossover games.
We are still getting two of them which is good. I never played a good version of the original. I had the awtiful PlayStation port. I'm familiar with both these games.
Yay, HD rereleases of old games! [/sarcasm]
I'm ok with this at least we get the better two games for the price of one but what the hey I'd buy them individually anyway.
After all this time, I still remember the code to play as Roll, Shadow Lady, and Red Venom in Marvel vs Capcom.
I can't wait for this and the JoJo Bizarre Adevnture HD game that is being released this is a good year for old fighters to be re-released
I hate being on the minority on this one, but Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter was my favorite of the series, mainly for two reasons: 1. It has more characters than the sequel, if you include secret characters and the main roster. 2. The music is more action packed in MSHvsSF: one example is the comparison between Ryu's theme in MSHvsSF and MvC, clearly Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter had better music, thanks to Yuki Iwai. Minority, again, but that is easily my favorite of the series......except for the final (not FINAL final) boss being no different from the previous game.
I actually think that Marvel Superheroes vs. Street Fighter is one of the best out of Capcom's library. Kinda makes me sad that it wasn't included in Origins, but eh, I still have Marvel vs. Capcom.
Also, Capcom please. Capcom vs. SNK 2 HD? Please?
Is there a chance that X-men vs. Street Fighter and Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter will also come out and being given the same treatment at a later date? Is there a chance we'll see a set with Capcom vs. SNK PRO and Capcom vs. SNK 2? - kimbap629
Sorry but anything "x-men" specific is off the table completely due to licensing reasons. Theoretically MSH vs. SF would be possible, but frankly speaking, in our opinion it's a relatively weak game compared to the others. Given that we could only pick two, we picked the ones we felt were the most iconic in the series that informed what would become UMVC3.
And sorry, we're not in discussions with SNK for anything at this point in time. Maybe someday, but those days are probably very far away given the preponderance of projects we need to take care of at a higher priority. - Christian Svensson
Capcom has stated fans also need to bug SNK with the issue of a re-release of Capcom vs. SNK 2, same goes for Capcom vs. SNK 3 (if fans want it made).
they would have to have license rights with SNK again like how they did it with marvel so they could release mvc2 for psn and xbla and mvc3. so whether its releasing Capcom vs. SNK for the psn and xbla or making a new Capcom vs. SNK they cant do any of that
I could complain but its not Capcom being a douche this time, Activision has the license to X-men so there really isn't anything Capcom can do about it. so with that, I can deal with.
here is a quick question Capcom and its not about UMvC3 or SFxT. when is Capcom vs SNK 2 coming to XBLA and PSN. out of all the games you re-release, I'm still hoping you do this one
That's wayy too bad. These two are the ones I grew up with and played the heck out of. While they definitely weren't as good as MVC1 back in the day, it would be great to have those two. Those were my first fighters and they burnt the crap out of my thumbs (PS1).
That makes sense. Sucks about licensing issues. Same reason we'll never have Spider-Man in the Avengers movies... =( But I agree, I think the two included games are plenty awesome in their own right. Can't wait to get my hands on them.
Wait til Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom Origins
I hate licensing issues; seriously how many games have been unable to get ports, remakes, sequels, or localizations because of this crap?
Actually, I think X-Men vs. Street Fighter is the weakest of the Vs. series...I still load up Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter every once in a while in FinalBurn Alpha and it is epic...I find X-Men vs. Street Fighter to be a little weak in the fighting mechanics and Juggernaut is neutered beyond belief...
Dude, if anything, I wanted a damn Children of Atom HD version. Guess that will never happen (thanks Activision).
