Can Fans Get Marvel vs Capcom 2 HD Re-Released? #FREEMVC2

In 2009 the XBOX 360 and Playstation 3 hosted an HD version of one of Capcom’s greatest arcade fighters Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes. Sadly, as happened to quite a few titles, it was yanked from the storefronts of both consoles in 2013.
Unless you had already purchased it, you were out of luck. Now fans of the supreme crossover brawler are gathering together to ask Capcom to please re-release the title on current-gen consoles. Can enough voices #FREEMVC2?
According to, this call to action comes from Maximilian Dood.

I had MVC2 on the Dreamcast and eventually on the original XBOX. You can still find a copy of the XBOX version online, but prices vary from $50+. That’s not quite so bad now. Before the XB360 release, that version was fetching $100+ on eBay and at Gamestop.
While both of those releases were great for the time, the XBOX Live Arcade and PS3 entries really hit the spot. The HD era made the amazing pixel animation pop, even though it also brought a few graphical oddities due to the widescreen presentation. Balancing all that out was online multiplayer!
MVC2 wasn’t the only crossover fighter that made its way onto seventh-generation consoles. During the heyday of XBOX Live Arcade, we were getting all sorts of classic arcade titles, including X-MEN, Simpsons, and a collection called Marvel vs Capcom Origins.

Capcom still has the Marvel vs Capcom Origins page active. This was also released on the XBOX 360 and included both Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom. If we’re going to resurrect MVC2, we may as well go for the entire library of games. Throw in X-MEN: Children of the Atom, too!
What are your thoughts on this fan campaign? Should Capcom re-re-release their old crossover fighting games on PC, PS5, and XBSX? Let us know in the comments.
