If you've ever wanted to "be taken for a ride", and you know what I'm talking about if you're a MvC2 player, then seriously there could be no better time to than now. Capcom has seemingly out of no where just dropped a mobile version of Marvel Vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes for iOS, which you can pick up for the introductory price of only $2.99, that is until May 6th when the game goes up to its full price of $4.99. And also worth noting is that it's a universal app, meaning that if you buy this for iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad it will transfer across all of those platforms with one single purchase.
The game is also not dumbed down for iOS but rather a full blown port of the original game, even hosting all 56 characters for you to battle with. Although you will be required to unlock the 32 of them since you're only given 24 from the get go.
The gameplay is also pretty much hadouken for hadouken the exact same thing you've come to love about the classic brawler, but with the addition of virtual controls and a simplified play style that gives player the option of flicking their fingers to do special moves without entering long string combos. But if you're a purist, and if you are then why are you playing this on an iPhone and not at an arcade somewhere, then there's also an included full-on 6 button arcade button setup but it takes up most of the screen's real estate.
At a measily $3 bucks, or even the full priced of $5, is there really any reason to pass up this fighting gem? Or do the virtual buttons on iOS make it just unplayable for you?
