New Marvel vs. Capcom Game Teased

By Chris Faylor, Jul 28, 2008 11:14am PDT With rival DC Comics pitting its characters against the cast of Mortal Kombat in the upcoming Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe (PS3, 360), Marvel has begun teasing a new entry in the fan-favorite Marvel vs. Capcom fighting series.

"Yes [a new Marvel vs. Capcom game is possible], and maybe sooner than you think," Marvel Studios production presient Kevin Feige revealed at the San Diego Comic Con following a fan question, as relayed by IGN.

The tag team-oriented 2D fighting series, which hit arcades in 1998 following X-Men vs. Street Fighter and Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, pits Marvel superheroes such as Wolverine and Spider-Man against various Capcom characters, including Mega Man, Resident Evil's Jill Valentine, Street Fighter's Ryu and Darkstalker's Morrigan.

Marvel vs. Capcom later appeared on PlayStation and Dreamcast, with a sequel released to arcades in 1999 and later arriving on Dreamcast, PlayStation 2 and Xbox. Both the PS2 and Xbox versions have since highly-valued collector's items.

Capcom is known to have two fighters in the works, Street Fighter 4 and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes, with the latter pitting Capcom's lineup against the work of Gatchaman (G-Force: Guardians of Space) animators Tatsunoko.
