In a recent interview at Shacknews, Digital Eclipse’s Mike Mika shared some updates regarding a return of Marvel vs Capcom 2. According to Mika, both Disney and Capcom have seen the #FREEMVC2 movement across social media. Mika implies that communications between the companies have began to some degree. Here’s what he had to say:
“I know for a fact from our early conversations that both companies recognize this… They’ve seen it, they know. If you’re at either one of these companies, I think there’s the ‘I’m wearing the company hat’ and also the ‘here’s what I want to do while I’m here and try to make it happen’. I think we have a lot of people in the ‘lets try to make it happen camp,’ it’s just a matter of navigating all the red tape.”
Ultimately, it comes down to profitable for both companies. We believe that bringing back Marvel vs Capcom 2 is easy money and should happen already, especially with veteran developers like Digital Eclipse at the helm. The #FREEMVC2 movement has garnered the attention of fans and newcomers alike who want the game on modern platforms. Stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Japanese gaming news and updates!
