I hate that we didn't get a version of Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes on the Saturn

I know it doesn't have Marvel vs Capcom in the name, but X-Men Vs Street Fighter should be showcased. It's basically Marvel vs Capcom 0
I have way more fun with it than MvC1 and Marvel Superheroes Vs StreetFighter (Which should also be on this list)

God damnit I hate Marvel vs Capcom threads I always get my hopes up and it’s just a compilation vid. MVcI was killed off too soon damnit! I don’t get why more fighters don’t follow the Killer Instinct model of F2P with a rotating free character and a $60 fee to unlock the whole roster.

I'd include X-Men Children of the Atom and Marvel Super Heroes, because they were the start of these series, or at least Marvel vs Capcom rehashed most character sprites from there, the Street Fighter Alpha series and Darkstalkers.

MVCI is my personal favourite, I was looking forward to the roster becoming as big as UMVC3's....:lollipop_crying:

It’s such a good game but was hamstrung by an ugly ass demo shitty marketing and Disney tbh. The frustrating part was that Disney literally bought FOX like a month after the game hit so they could have gotten the X-men in it.

Real shame.

The PS versions were a disgrace, you couldn't even tag lmao. Unless you did mirror matches.

Saturn versions were a generation ahead. The difference was that big.

I preordered MvC on Dreamcast with the fight stick. PS1 was good for scratching that itch of being at home instead of the arcade. You got to play as your favorite character, but that was about it. I remember playing all of them at the arcade. Some of my favorite memories were the Charlie assist in MvC or Shadow. Having Sentinel as an assist was also good. I own the Saturn ports of XMvsSF and MvsSF.

I miss those days. Infinite could have been better, but they lost that MvC charm along the way. I don’t understand what stops Capcom. Why are the 90’s X-Men/Marvel so hard to make a game for? This new stuff gets old after a while.

X-Men Vs. Street Fighter is, indeed, the best. Hard to say why, exactly... just flows better, I guess? They hadn't gone too over the top in terms of speed and crazy shit happening by that point.

I feel the same way. It's the only one of CAPCOM's Vs games where the cast of fighters were balanced against one another.

these crossover games on Playstation 1 lacks the tag team feature and has performance issue, long load time etc. But it was better than nothing for me back then

I think X-Men vs SF, Marvel SH vs SF, and Marvel vs Capcom 1 all have about the same roster size, don't they? They're all bumping up against the CPS-II storage limits with around 18ish characters IIRC (not counting space-saving palette swaps like Shadow Lady or whatever)....

Series was special back in the day but with Capcom shilling the same old tired IPs and Marvel being EXTREMELY conservative about character selection to represent what the mainstream media should get given.

I think MvC is dead, but I’m still waiting on Capcom vs Capcom.

I prefer the gameplay in MvCI over DBFZ, but looks-wise..... the latter successfully recreated the excitement from the early X-Men/Marvel/VS games, while MvCI seemed more concerned with another 5+ year esports business plan, and advertising future Disney movies. If Capcom (I said Capcom, not Marvel/Disney) doesn't have what it takes to respond to DBFZ appropriately, then now is a good time to put the series to bed

PS. X-Men COTA's music is classic, and hasn't been topped in this long series imo
