Lens of Truth writes - "Many things, both good and bad, have been set into motion this generation of consoles. One thing that we seem to be seeing more and more of is the re-release of games that should not need to be put out more than once. Now I’m not talking about HD remakes of classic PS2 games nor the digital sale of some of the older generation’s gems, as this is actually a good thing. No I’m talking about games that seem to get rushed out and sold for full price, just to have another more complete version released later down the road."
Artist Chris Cayco, who we’ve featured a few times before on Kotaku, grew up playing Marvel vs. Capcom (and Marvel vs. Street Fighter) games. His tribute to this, which took him over 175 hours, was to combine every single character to ever appear in Capcom’s crossover series in the one enormous image.
As common as it is today, it is hard to believe that there was a time where gaming franchises crossing over was just a pipe dream. Capcom broke down the wall, but they took the combination of some of the most unlikely of franchises and made it the norm.
Whether it was a colossal successful partnership with Marvel Comics or a collaboration with rivals Namco and SNK, the “Vs.” series brought unforgettable experiences to the fighting genre.
Marvel doesn't just have a bright future ahead of it in films, but in the gaming realm as well. Some exciting new titles are showing up on all hardware, so does that mean gamers are finally catching up with the MCU?
