All of the fan favorite characters are back such as Wolverine, Spider-man, Iron-man, Psylocke, Shuma-Gorath, Blackheart, Dr. Doom, Thanos, Chun-Li, and many more. The video game can be played in a variety of modes which include Arcade Cabinet Emulation mode and the Over-the-Shoulder Arcade Cabinet Mode. The online play really makes the experience with over 8-player lobbies and spectator mode. The online mode contains tons of options like a Ping Filter that allows players the ability to restrict others who have high pings in order to avoid laggy matches. Marvel vs. Capcom's matchmaking options contain less menus which promotes continuous playing.

The colorful graphics, tight controls, kick-ass soundtrack and intense gameplay are just a few of the reasons to pick up Marvel Vs. Capcom Origins today!
