Developer Digital Eclipse has teased that the classic 2000 arcade brawler Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 could soon be getting the remastered treatment and find new life on modern consoles.
Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 is regarded by many as the highpoint in the crossover fighting game, and it's not hard to see why. It's a stunningly slick, beautifully made fighter that pits classic Marvel heroes against Capcom's best and brightest. Unfortunately it's also been incredibly hard to get hold of the game since around 2014, when the game was pulled from digital storefronts after Capcom's licenses to use Marvel's characters expired.
Fortunately, it sounds as if Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 is getting a new lease on life. In a recent interview with GamerHubTV on YouTube, Digital Eclipse head Mike Mika explained that both Disney and Capcom have been approached, and that discussions are happening.
"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," Mika said. "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."
Digital Eclipse released an excellent port of Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 previously. It was released back in 2009 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but was pulled from storefronts just a few years later. The upshot of this is that we know Digital Eclipse could totally handle a modern remaster of the game. We just have to hope that both Disney and Capcom can come to some sort of arrangement that allows it to happen. Watch this space.
