I Wanna Take YoU 4 A Ride this Thursday!

What’s up P-Essers? I’m here today to announce the imminent arrival of one of the worst kept secrets in the industry. You’ve seen the ESRB leak. You’ve seen the MadCatz joysticks. You probably visited a cryptic sight called that just counted down to zero.

If you’ve been paying attention to my blogs and interviews, I’ve been leaking info about this day for quite some time. We conducted this Gamespot poll back in March of 2008 to gauge interest on what games you want to see us bring back. We listened to your feedback and tried to work quietly on the project. Well, as you know, I’m not the quiet type (the PR Ninjas here don’t like me so much). There was this MTV interview in June of last year, my PS blog on August 14th alluding to a Street Fighter surprise, and numerous blogs after that teasing this announcement.

So what’s the announcement? Here it is, officially:

Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 Summer 2009

Yes that’s right. Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 will finally arrive on PSN this summer! For more information on the full game, go visit

But wait, there’s more. Here’s the freaking ace up our sleeve:

  • trophies? multiplayer online? you got yourselves a deal!!!

  • Whoever keeps including these classic 80’s songs in Capcom fighting game trailers should get an immediate raise.

  • Can. Not. Wait.

    This is the best news I’ve heard in a while! Can’t wait to take it for a ride…




    thanks, capcom im getting it, I flocking lvoe you guys

  • Awesome. As a possible future expansion, consider the following awesomeness – Marvel vs Capcom vs DC. Oh yeah, bring on the DLC.

  • … NICE!

    *prays for true widescreen*

  • F fighting games…

  • You guys have me sold keep it sony and capcom.

    You guys are making dreams come true.

  • John,

    Whoever came up with the idea to use that music in the trailer (and the Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Trailers) deserves a raise.

  • Never really played Marvel vs Capcom, but I’ll definately check it out. BTW are we ever gonna hear anything about the first dead rising coming to ps3? Sorry, just had to ask.

  • Whoa MvC2 is back baby!!! This is the best news like forever!!! And exclusive to PSN, SWEET!!!!!!! THANK YOU CAPCOM!!

  • …price? >.>

    This is one of those things that could be sold for as low as 4.99 up to 29.99.

  • Very awesome. Now, all you have to do is put one of the Darkstalkers games on the PSN. If there’s a fighting game series I miss, it’s that one. The presence of the Darkstalkers characters put Cross Edge on my must-buy list. Hell, I guarantee you that if you guys ever did an HD remix of Nightwarriors or Vampire Savior 2, it would build up enough hype for a full-fledged Darkstalkers sequel.

    Anyway, while I haven’t really been that big of a fan of MVC2 in the past (I was disappointed at the lack of a story mode), I’ll most likely pick this one up. Online versus mode sounds like it might be a lot of fun with 56 characters. Of course, it’ll probably all be Ken’s. ;)

  • Sounds good. Ok Time to work on some combos in mugen…

    Serious though I’m gettin this.

  • I love you, John and Capcom. You just made my day that much better.

  • So no HD remixed characters (like SF2HDR had)? If all it is a widescreen version of MvC2 with online multiplayer then I won’t even buy it.

  • John,

    Why are you guys canceling PSP games? DMC PSP was canceled and I’m sure I’m not alone in saying I wanted it. The PSP is the ONLY current gen system not to get a Resident Evil game, what’s up with that? You think PSP owners only want Monster Hunter? Monster Hunter sucks, give me Resident Evil. :)

  • Cool John will there be a release of Snk vs. Capcom those games are awesome. Also when will the trophies be realeased for STF 2 HD remix still waiting on them please John my best friend answer question please and thank you.

  • We get an exclusive demo? Cool, probably means the 360 gets a better game and dlc.

  • Whoa whoa whoa!! The psn just went into overload. Now I don’t have to deal wit all the cheapazzes in SF4 (all you fireballin, dragonpunchin noobs). Those little tricks don’t work in this game!! A few questions though. How do you make it lag free, or just a little (SF4 has bad lag, I have good connection)? Will it be just an arcade port, or dreamcast or ps2? Not redrawn, but upscaled and smooth out, right? And my request are, voice chat and rooms with multiple people, not just 1 on 1. But, most of all, make the gameplay fast, accurate and lag free. Thankyou.

    P.S. Don’t forget free Home stuff for purchasin the game, or unlockin.

  • i cant lie this is FANTANSTC news BUT.. a REMAKE wouldve bin better IMO…u knoe..more characters..better backgrounds..but hey cant complain! i love this game..i already got it for the ps2 so ..i wont really need to buy it..:p..but its kool to c that they actually listen to thier fans. go capcom! and keep up the GREAT werk

  • Oh yeah, the music was the shiz. Makes me wanna watch the transformers movie again.

  • Home Space and Game Launching????

    (drops to floor)

    I’ll pay triple to get it sooner than june.


    But, yes, definitely a day 1 purchase. The internet knew it was coming, but it doesn’t change how happy I am! :D

  • Release that MvC 2 poster as a Home download and you’ll make this day even better :P

  • You sir, just earned yourself a cookie!

  • this is the best news of the day for me!!.

    I love MVC2,awesome news John!!,thanks Capcom!!.

  • Why would I buy this?

    lawl…of course I’m buying it. Nice news.

  • ……. this makes up for the no trophies in Bionic Commando and SF2HD!!!

  • John!
    Please answer my question in my post 68 and will there be a contest MY BEST FRIEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Still waiting on those PS1 games….why do I even bother :(

    I’ll be sure to download the demo.

  • Awesome Capcom and Sony!

    I can’t wait.

    P.S. Me loves Darkstalkers too and would love an update for it too! I know you’re listening Capcom. ;)

  • Hey John, thanks for the post. I guess I’ll go for PSN version.

    Thanks for the continued updates.

  • Why no online for this? to do a online test. SFII Turbo was pretty bad when you hit those lags!

  • Amazing… all we need now is Final Fight HD with online CoOp…
    You know you want it…



  • I love you Diamonon. And the Curleh Mustache.

    I wanted a Powerstone 2, though! Is there any chance that will come out? I loved Powerstone… But I won’t complain, though, I’m happy that MvC2 is coming out!

  • How bout capcom vs snk 2 HD remix? Maybe yah can let snk do the sprite drawing, since they are so hardcore into it right now. Hmm, Hmm?

  • Oh Capcom you guys are the best, I have been looking for this game fir years. Thank you,Thank you,Thank you.

  • Bionic Commando demo?

    Announcement that Lost Planet 2 is on PS3?

    Monster Hunter for PS3?

    I guess I’m one to hold a grudge and will just play this on my Dreamcast until Capcom’s supposed agnostic position becomes real.

  • Has my money.

  • awesome! was hoping for a remake but this is just as good.

    i hope its $9.99 so that EVERYONE and their mom buys it! Any higher and a lot of people wont buy me thinks

  • finally i ask you before and you told me to vote for it and its finally here thanks will there be a psp version and how much is it

  • John are we gonna hear pretty soon about those psone classic games???


    Is this going to be similar to SF2 HDR in the way that the animations are being remade or is it going to be the direct DC Version??

  • How big was the money hat John?

    Also, will I be taken for a ride?

  • also are you going to release marvel vs capcom 1 and please add ps1 strider, megaman, dino crisis and resident evil 1,2,3 to the playstation store

  • So the Fighting fans got what they wanted but the Monster Hunter fans don’t? F@#$ YOU CAPCOM. F@#$ YOU
