Game Profile - Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes on Playstation 2

Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes (Japanese: マーヴル VS. カプコン 2 ニュー エイジ オブ ヒーローズ Hepburn: Māvuru bāsasu Kapukon Tū: Nyū Eiji obu Hīrōzu?) is a crossover fighting game developed and published by Capcom. It is the fourth installment in the Marvel vs. Capcom series, which features characters from both Capcom's video game franchises and comic book series published by Marvel Comics. Originally released in Japanese arcades in 2000, the game received ports to the Dreamcast, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox, Xbox 360, and iOS devices over the span of twelve years.

In Marvel vs. Capcom 2, players select a team of characters from the Marvel and Capcom universes to engage in combat and attempt to knock out their opponents. While the game uses similar tag team-based game mechanics to the series' previous iteration, Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes, it features several significant changes, such as three-on-three gameplay, a new character assist system, and a more simplified control scheme. The character artwork uses traditional 2D-animated sprites, while the backgrounds and visual effects are rendered in 3D. This makes Marvel vs. Capcom 2 the first game in the franchise to feature 2.5D graphics.

The game received positive reviews from critics, who praised its gameplay, visuals, and character roster while criticizing its soundtrack and initial lack of online multiplayer support outside of Japan. Following its release, Capcom lost the use of the Marvel Comics license, putting the series on a decade-long hiatus. In April 2010, Capcom announced the development of a sequel, Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, which was later released in February 2011.
