Description

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is the sequel to the 2D fighting game Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes.

The game allows you to tag in all three players (instead of two, while the third is only used for special attacks, in the predecessor).

There are now up to 56 characters to use (most you have to unlock), including new characters like Jill Valentine from Resident Evil and Tron Bonn from Mega Man Legends.

Another new gameplay feature allows your team mates to come in during battle and give you a little health boost. This helps in lasting the distance in Survival mode, but they can also be hit by on coming attacks from the enemy.

Trivia

1001 Video Games

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Cameos

Some 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 version

The Xbox release of this game was originally going to have online play. However, it was scrapped at the last minute.
