Marvel vs Capcom Origins Resurrects Two Retired Fighters in HD

Capcom bundles Marvel's famous fighting games for PSN and XBLA.

Capcom is bringing two games from its past into the modern era with today's announcement of Marvel vs Capcom Origins. The game, which includes Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes, hits XBLA and PSN this September for 1200 MSP and $14.99, respectively.

Besides bringing the original gorgeous art into the HD era, the pack includes online multiplayer with a spectator mode and saveable replays. Much like Capcom's Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition, other features include visual filters, in-game achievements called "dynamic challenges," and what seems to be unlockable character art and other bonus content.

Both games in the pack first hit arcades in the mid- and late-1990s. Super Heroes is based on "The Infinity Gauntlet" comic book series, setting up Marvel's heroes to fight against each other and ultimately the main antagonist Thanos for control of all-powerful gems that can bend reality to possessors' wills. Marvel vs Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes was a follow-up to Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter, and it expanded the roster while adding a Duo Team Attack mode to control two characters simultaneously. Although the Marvel vs Capcom series has continued seeing new installments with new mechanics and characters, the original games still hold their own.

If you're lucky enough to be able to go to the EVO Championship Series this weekend or San Diego Comic-Con next week, Marvel vs Capcom Origins will be playable at both shows. Capcom also promises to stream the game online during Comic-Con, so if you can't wait for the game to come out you can get an early look at the features on its website.

Fucking sweet! Marvel Superheroes is one of my favorite fighting games ever. The Infinity Gems were a fun mechanic and Thanos was balln' final boss. It also has one of my favorite select screens as mundane as that is.

I am throwing money at my screen but nothing is happening!

OT: I remember playing the hell out of Clash of Super Heroes in the arcades as a young lad. Ah the memories. I have missed it so.

Capcom are evil, soulless and wants our money...

But Is Mahvel Baybee, I can't stay mad that them...

Good to hear after i retired my old PS1 version of MvC. And Marvel Super Heroes is an added bonus.

A nod to Evo. Nice.

Never really sat down on either game. It'll be nice to relive the glory days when Capcom weren't money-grubbing jack-offs.

To quote yathzee, money cant get out my wallet fast enough. marvel supero heroes used to be my life.

Dam but I really miss those old arcades.

Could that combo be performed on everyone or just Hulk because of his huge hitbox? O.o

Anyone except in shuma gorath's stage because it doesn't have corners. it is easier on hulk, though and harder on juggernaut, he has a weird hit area in a combo.

So Capcom's releasing stuff I can't buy used.

Profound disinterest.

Fuckin' A! I've wanted to play Marvel Super Heroes for ages but it was always too expensive. Now Capcom just needs to re-release X-Men vs Street Fighter *wink wink*

Not buying any Capcom fighting game until Katt from Breath of Fire 2 is on the Capcom side of the roster.

T.T that video brought me back. i played them on the arcade when i was little. and i still own the console versions today ^_^

Honestly, I prefer X-Men Vs Street Fighter over Marvel Super Heroes, they took what they did with MSH and refined it with XMVSF, the whole Tag Team feature that is big today started with that game and it was a huge revelation at the time. Good thing I still have the MAME version on my PC to play though in the meantime, but I would definitely pick up the that bundle just for the nostalgia, if I owned an Xbox.

What MVC3 is doing today, people were doing in 1997 in the arcades, and its still amazing seeing great players do the impossible.

MEGAMANS! AMFG I LOVE YOU MEGAMAN! YOU ARE THE BEST BLUE PLATFORMER PROTAGONIST EVER!

and before any Sonic fans come in and point out Sonic is a blue platformer protagonist all I have to say to you is:

But, yeah. This has me pretty hyped and I haven't bought a beat 'em up since Blazeblue Continuum Shift.

Seems interesting, though with Persona 4 Arena coming out soon, I may not play this one very much.

Capcom releasing more content for their fighting series? STOP THE PRESSES!

I really wanna play the original Marvel vs Capcom as that is the fighting game I grew up with, I don't have the same nostalgia that other people have for Marvel vs Capcom 2 (which I bought in 2008) and have been waiting for a port of the original so this compilation looks great!

Oh, awesome, I'll be at Comic Con. Gotta look this up, I loved Marvel Super Heroes...

What a coincidence Capcom!, yesterday I was tripping into my nostalgic memories about the many, many hours I spent playing Marvel Super Heroes on the PS1 (sorry, I didn't liked the first MvC, at least not the PS1 version) and how fucking awesome it was!.

I'd throw you my money if I still had an Xbox.

i hope you guys are not dumb enough to buy this game when this companies history is filled with re-re-re-re-re-releasing the same damn shit after 2 months.

i hope you wait for the ultimate super deluxe squishy squashy GOTY edition.

kinda funny how they have to drudge up old relics rather than, ya know, put out more free dlc for games they released *cough mvc3 cough*

Are we talking regular Katt or Katt with her Evil/Fire shaman fusion? Either way, would be sweet as all hell!

But, if we're going to take that route, then Jean has to be in there with his Water/Holy shaman fusion. I mean...

Regular Katt, of course. I didn't really like her fused appearance as much. Or maybe both?

Have them in the game with their respective transformations as super moves?

I liked the transformed versions better, tbh, but then again I love most anything angelic, demonic and/or draconic - of which Jean and Katt's transformations fit in categories 1 and 2, respectively.
