1001 Video GamesMarvel vs. Capcom 2 appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
CameosSome of the Capcom roster of characters are taken from old or obscure Capcom games such as SonSon or Amingo (who is rumored to be from a canceled Capcom game), or from Japanese games never released anywhere else at the time of this game's original release (such as Jin). The only character that doesn't originate from any previous Capcom game, however, is Ruby Heart, the female pirate character who was created specifically for Marvel vs. Capcom 2.
Xbox versionThe Xbox release of this game was originally going to have online play. However, it was scrapped at the last minute.
