'Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 HD Remix' On The Way?

According to an interview with Capcom's Christian Svensson, the company is looking into developing more high definition remakes ala' the highly successful "Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix". Their prime target? The ever popular Marvel Vs. Capcom 2:

"Are we done doing HD Remixes? No we're not done. But the next ones that we do will be even better, based on what we learned."

When asked if Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was a game that didn't need the HD Remix treatment, Svensson replied: "I won't say it doesn't need it. Marvel would be great to do. There's obviously a fan base for it. It's probably our most requested title. Unfortunately, I wish I had news to share on that front but I don't." --Christian Svensson

Sounds good to me, but what are the chances of a "Marvel Vs. Capcom 3" after all these years?

"I would never say never but I would say the barriers to doing that are much higher than the barriers for MvC2."

I don't know about you, but I thoroughly enjoyed SFIITHDR, so I'm definitely looking forward to whatever Capcom churns out.

  2. HD Miss Tron?

    DO WANT!!!

  3. Why is everyone speculating a HD version of that game? As always he does, Sven knows nothing.

  4. HD Megaman!

    HD Wolverine!

    HD Ryu!

    And all of Capcom and Marvel are going to be HD!


  5. That'd be awesome, MvC2 is one of my favorite games...ever. Ryu, Spider-Man, Mega Man, Wolverine, Strider, Iron Man, Venom, Chun-Li, Tron Bonne, Captain America, Jill Valentine...all in one game! What's not to love?

  6. As in HD sprites, HELL NO! I saw what sprites look like in HD and it's not pretty.
    But I might get this since I don't have MVC2 anymore.

  7. What an unbelievable undertaking... 56 characters to render in high-definition? And how would they handle all those lame 3-D backdrops? And the music... Would they get Overclocked Remix to redo that soundtrack? It's a pretty bad soundtrack as far as fighting games go, though. (Sounds more like a racing game.) And new modes... Online obviously.

    As much as I want an HD MVC2, I don't foresee it anytime in the near future!
