"First things first, Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is nowhere near as complex to control as many of its peers. There are only four main attack buttons, offering the expected light/heavy punches and kicks. The other two buttons from the classic arcade layout, now mapped to the shoulder buttons, are used to call in your support characters.
Far from being a simple one-on-one brawler, this pits teams of three characters against each other. Each can be assigned a specific support function, although the game will nudge you towards the one best suited to their skills."
