    1. People have been asking for these games for a long time, it’s been well overdue.

    2. I never understood why y'all would bash on collections, especially for games for decades old consoles that a lot of people don't own anymore. How are collections a bad thing, when it allows new people to experience these games and old fans to experience them?

    3. Not JUST a collection. These games have online and rollback netcode. It’s more or less everything any fan of these games could have wanted.

  4. This is awesome, hopefully this gets a physical release.

    1. It probably will, their other fighting game collections were physically released.

    2. From what I saw online both the Ps4 and Switch will be getting a physical release.

  8. The kinda MegaMan you love to see! Man that art looks soo good! MvC is back, feelsgoodman. Kind of a miracle that gives me some more megaman hope. Today's a good day.

  9. It’s great seeing MvC 2 so easily available now. Now maybe if we can start looking at a way to get Tatsunoko vs. Capcom too…

  10. Personally, I never got to truly play these games so I can't wait to get this. I'm most excited to play as Spider-Man and Venom.

  11. Yeah, also Roll is apparently no longer a hidden character in mvc1... I guess they're gonna make her visible in the character select screen without any need for cheats and stuff

    ReplyDelete
  12. Unpopular opinion but I think mvc1 is way better than 2.

    1. Maybe for the more subjective stuff like music and presentation, but MvC1 was beyond broken in terms of gameplay. It made 2 look well made and balanced in comparison.

  13. Hopefully they're using this release to garner interest in another MVC title. We need a redemption after the flop that was MVCI.

    1. Actually MvCI is the second best selling game in the series.

  14. My baby brother is buying Marvel vs. Capcom Collection for his Sony PlayStation 4 console to play it on Sony PlayStation 5 console. The Sony PS4 and Sony PS5 are compatible game console ports. So the game should look even better playing it on Sony PS5. Increased and upgraded graphics and game sprites.

  15. So MvC fans get a "Light Reduction" option, but Mega Man 8 and X4 fans in their respective Legacy collection are forced to deal with the lightning already reduced in the FMV cutscenes with no option to restore it even AFTER Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite bombed and the Legacy collections succeeded? GFY Capcom.

    1. MvCI outsold every Mega Man Legacy Collection.... It outsold every Mega Man game in general actually and eventually sold more than 2 million Capcom wanted out of it. This is all with extremely bad general public reputation BTW.

      Delete
    2. Even so the option should be in the collections, from the start even.

    3. "In its first half report of the fiscal year ending on March 31, 2018, Capcom reported that over 900,000 units had been shipped in the period ending September 30, 2017. In its third quarter report of the fiscal year ending on March 31, 2018, Capcom disclosed that Infinite had sold one million units as of December 31, 2017, missing its initial sales target. In their 2018 integrated report, Capcom described sales for Infinite as weak, stating 'Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite delivered a certain level of sales, primarily overseas owing to deep-rooted popularity, but underperformed overall'" you can read this in Wikipedia or read directly from the PDF. Yeah, now it met its target, but it originally failed its initial sales target.

      As a whole MvC3 sold 5 million units. When you go to their "Platinum Titles" website, the original Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for PS3 and Xbox 360 sold 2.20 million units, the PlayStation Vita, 4, Xbox One and PC port of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 sold 1.80 million units, and the original version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for PS3 and Xbox 360 sold 1.20 million units. It was confusing to find where the 3 millions for Ultimate came from, but kept reading through the list until I found they separate the 2011 native versions(page/tab 4) from the 2017 ports(page/tab 5). A weird thing is that they list download services as their own thing(DL) which doesn't really make sense because something(either a PC or a console or a handheld) has to download that game.

    4. Another weird thing is that they don't list the 2011 PS Vita version. I thought they meant the DL version, but no, the Vita version got a physical release. And for the 2016 ports they list the release date of the Windows and Xbox One version in March 7 of 2017 as the official date instead of the original release of the PS4 version on December 3 of 2016. Also also, whoops, the 2011 versions are on page/tab 5 and the 2016 ports on page/tab 4, not vice versa.
