In this episode, I picked up a Capcom Big Blue Arcade cabinet, and what a surprise to see it was running Marvel vs. Capcom 2! The Sega Naomi architecture is awesome and I have wanted a Naomi system for a while, so It makes this pickup that much more exciting!
Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes (a.k.a. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 or MvC2) is the fourth game of the Marvel vs. Capcom series of fighting games. With the (presumably) final installment of the series, Capcom simplified the engine so that it would be more accessible to casual players, in order to bring in new players, as interest in arcade fighting games had declined. Changes were made to the air combo system and the button configuration was trimmed down to 4 main buttons and 2 assist buttons. The game also features 3 on 3 tag, compared to the 2 on 2 tag from previous games in the series. It is the only game in the series to use the NAOMI system, which is used mostly for 3D games. It is mainly seen in this game in the backgrounds and system effects, as well as Abyss’s sphere. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was later ported to the Dreamcast, Xbox, PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
