Marvel vs. Capcom 2 demo for XBL, no Wii release, MvC1 unlikely Capcom revealed a few more details today about when users can expect a Marvel vs. Capcom 2 demo for the XBox Live and a they commented on few other matters concerning the release of the game this summer.
Will we see a MvC2 demo release for XBox Live like there is for the PSN?

Seth: The early demo will indeed be a PSN exclusive. MVC2 will also have an X360 demo available at the time the game launches.

More details about what the demo contains when it goes live... [this week].

Sven: Demos on XBLA are part of the same submission as the full game (the demo is the full game with some content locked until the key is purchased) and demos are not released in advance on XBLA.

So the XBLA demo will arrive when the game goes live this summer. And as some people have pointed out, we did manage to get content early to 360 owers via the HD Remix beta program.

Why isn't MvC2 being released on the Wii?

Sven: [...] There's no way to get anywhere near the Wiiware filesize limit. [...]

Will we get a Marvel vs. Capcom 1 re-release too?

Sven: We had only ever intended to do one of the Marvel revivals, and by far, the most popular/critically acclaimed/highest ebay priced choice, was MvC2. From a business perspective, we will likely only ever get one bite at the apple in this series and we feel we've put our best foot forward with MvC2.

Seth: There's no question MvC1 is a great game in its own right. The issue with releasing it was not one of chronology, it was more about "if we only have one opportunity to release one of our old Marvel titles, which one should it be?" MVC2 won that battle, and as much as I like a lot of the earlier games (Xmen vs SF, and Marvel Super Heroes in particular), I think MVC2 won for good reasons.
