In a new Arcade1Up cabinet revealed at Evo 2022, Marvel vs. Capcom 2 returns ...

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is finally returning in a new form, according to game developer Arcade1Up. A new package includes eight classic Marvel fighting games.

All three original Marvel vs. Capcom games will be included in the cabinet, including Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and the OG Marvel Superheroes vs. Street Fighter.

Five other classic Marvel fighting games are being repackaged from previous Arcade1Up releases, including X-Men vs. Street Fighter, X-Men: Children of the ATOM, X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse, and Marvel Super Heroes in War of the Gems. The company has also teased that further information on the content included in the cabinet will be released in the future.

These games will have online compatibility, allowing players to compete on the internet, bringing new life to their competitive scenes via official hardware.

Justin Wong, a famous FGC member of all time, was a major part of the decision to approve the deal. He currently works for Arcade1Up and was a key player in the ongoing #FreeMVC2 campaign that pops up every few months.

It's official!! The Marvel Vs Capcom 2 cabinet has been announced by @arcade_1up!!! I've been working very hard on this so I hope you get one and enjoy this master piece #FREEMVC2 #FREEDMVC2

This isnt the sort of modern re-release fans were hoping for after the game was removed from digital shelves due to expired licenses over the years, but it does show that there is a possibility for a comeback.
