Oh I'm a big fan. I purchased my Dreamcast for it…well that and RE:CV...but still, I was all excited for a new one.
Not with flashy NEW 3D ANIMATIONS HERP DERP just more characters.
It is possible that the release of this game is to see if there is enough interest from gamers and fans for a 3rd game.
It's the same when SF2 Hyper Fighting was released a few years ago, due to its success, Capcom gave the green light for SF4.
So basically; big purchases of game= 1%+ chances of a 3rd game being released/worked on.
Anyway here's some quick info-
Music Options – We love MvC2 but the original “jazzy” music has long been criticized even by ardent fans. Independent music volume controls and support of custom soundtracks on PS3 and 360 we deemed an important feature. Purists will still have what they love and fans of customization are also served.
And as an added bonus, some of you will get to play it sooner than you think. The US PlayStation network will have the demo available for download this week (Europe’s PSN should follow not far after). Surprise.
HD upscaling options - Given that most people play Xbox 360s and PS3s on HD TVs, it's important to help make the game look better. We've refined our real-time sprite filtering to use even more advanced techniques and we're providing two upscaling options for the sprites… one we've termed "Crisp" the other we've termed "Smooth". It's a matter of personal preference for which one you'll enjoy more. For purists, if you'd like you can use the "Classic" setting, which leaves the sprites completely unfiltered. Because the filtering is applied in real-time, you can change these settings on the fly, mid-match if you choose. Our producer will be showing you some comparison screenshots in the coming days to better clarify the differences. The backgrounds in MvC2 are all 3D, and when rendered at higher resolutions look fantastic. The original textures and assets from the Dreamcast were actually much higher quality than the Dreamcast could really display at the time and when shown in HD, the impact is really quite amazing.
Oh and the game is for $15.
