MvCO_Screenshots_PAX_Prime_12

Marvel vs. Capcom Origins brings video game fight fans back to the ‘90s arcades beginning with the September 25th North American launch on PlayStation Network for PS3. The fight begins the next day, September 26th, on Xbox Live Arcade. Price point: $14.99/1200 MS Points.

In case anyone out there forgot, Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is a retro combo pack containing arcade-authentic ports of Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes. A month from now, you’ll be able to fight it out locally against a second player or online in 8-player lobbies (with spectator mode and replay saves).

As pictured in the screenshot above and the full gallery below, the game will additionally provide multiple graphics/presentation options, including HD-smoothed widescreen and a variety of arcade cabinet views. Yes, that is a playable over-the-shoulder perspective you’re looking at. Pretty sweet!
