Marvel vs. Capcom 2 gets June date

Comic-book maker spills beans.

Marvel Entertainment has announced a 29th June release date for PSN and XBLA fighter Marvel vs. Capcom 2. The date was revealed along with the comic-book maker's Q1 2009 financial results.

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 unsurprisingly pits Marvel characters against Capcom creations. This old Dreamcast game was confirmed for revival at the Captivate '09 event recently, and returns with the netcode from Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, which was very good. Presentation will be given similar treatment, too.

A PSN-exclusive US demo has already been released, and a PAL version is to follow.

The full game will cost 1200 Microsoft Points (GBP 10.20 / EUR 14.40) on Xbox Live Arcade or USD 14.99 from the PlayStation Store.
