Marvel: Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Slated For June ReleaseS

In its financial report, comic book giant Marvel dated the re-release of classic fighter Marvel vs. Capcom 2. That date is June 29.

And that date is, if you check your calendars, a Monday. Marvel does note "scheduled release dates are subject to change" in its report, so that means just that: this release date is subject to change. With Comic-Con following in July, it would make sense for the game to hit XBLA before then.

The original, and this latest version, features brawlers from the Capcom and Marvel universes. It also features 3 on 3 tag-team matches and four button controls. All 56 characters are accessible from the get go.

The re-release boasts an optional visual filter that smooths out the game's graphics and new online modes, including Ranked Matches and the Quarter matches found in Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, which allows up to four people to watch and chat while two others fight. It also features widescreen support with the gameplay in a 4:3 field, but the viewing area expanded.

Capcom previously announced that the game will be out this summer on the PSN for US $15 and on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1,200 Microsoft Points. The game was developed by Foundation 9 and is based on the Dreamcast code.
