Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Remaster Discussions Have Reportedly Begun

Digital Eclipse wants to revive Marvel vs. Capcom 2 with a remaster, and the studio head says discussions about the project have begun. In an interview with GamerHubTV on YouTube, Digital Eclipse's Mike Mika said both Disney and Capcom have been approached about the idea.

"We’ve begun some discussions on that right now and we’re trying to see how far we can go. But ultimately, at the end of the day, it’s really not up to us," Mika said. "So all we can really do is just make the best case possible and try to make it easy for them, and see if they’re interested.”

In 2009 Digital Eclipse, called Backbone Entertainment at the time, released a port of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on the PS3 and Xbox 360 digital storefronts. The game was pulled at the end of 2013 after Capcom's licenses to use Marvel's characters expired. Earlier this summer, the #FreeMvC2 campaign exploded in an effort from fans to try and make the game more easily accessible.

Since becoming Digital Eclipse in 2015, the studio has become known for remastering classic games. Digital Eclipse has worked on collections for Mega Man, Street Fighter, SNK, Disney, and more.

Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes originally released in 2000. It originally came to arcades and the Dreamcast, before arriving on PS2 and Xbox in 2002.
