Capcom has announced a new game coming to the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 with Marvel vs Capcom Origins. This 2 dimensional Fighting game looks like a ton of fun and combines many characters from the Marvel and Capcom worlds to give players a very ample selection when playing. Main fighting modes are either one on one or two on two tag format allowing up to four players locally.
The trailer below shows lots of great fighting sequences including one very interesting detail for fans of The Avengers. The villain in the second installment of the Avengers series, Thanos, is a character in Marvel vs Capcom so fans of the movies that haven’t seen him in comics can get an idea of what to expect from him in Avengers 2.
This game looks like tremendous fun at a great price, running only $15 for each system. The game will be available September 2012. Press release and video are below.
