Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 Coming to iPhones

By: Sean Patterson - April 20, 2012

Capcom announced today that it would be releasing a Marvel vs. Capcom 2 App for mobile devices running Apple’s iOS. The game will feature all 56 characters from the original Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and will maintain all of its arcade stylings and fight mechanics. To be specific, the iOS version of the game will taking a play from the original Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on consoles by including the “Variable System” that allows players to swap in team members at any time, and also the “Team Hyper Combos.”

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 will be available in Apple’s App store on April 25th. Though Capcom only specifically stated the game would be available on iPhone and iPod touches, I imagine the game will also run on an iPad.

There is no word yet on how the controls of the game will be implemented on a touch screen or whether the game will feature any multiplayer modes. If there is multiplayer support, it might be difficult to play a fighting game, which needs precise timing, over a 3G or 4G connection. It will be either very interesting or very disappointing to see how Capcom has dealt with both of these issues. Take a look at a few of the screenshots released for the game, and let me know in the comments if a fighting game is the type of game you want to play while waiting for the bus.
