No new music tracks or retail release for Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Capcom has been burning up the Unity Boards with more details about the upcoming release of Marvel vs. Capcom 2. Here's some of the questions that were on the minds of the fans.
Will you guys add new music into MvC2?

Sven: Sorry, there are no plans to add new music to the game. The orignal game's music is the original game's music, unless you want to change it with support from the custom soundtrack features on each console.

Will there be a retail version of Marvel vs. Capcom 2?

Sven: The deal for MvC2, upon which I was the primary negotiator, only grants us rights to port and sell digitally MvC2. Beyond that, we'll see how this title does. I have high hopes.

The MvC2 deal pertains ONLY to MvC2. Anything that happens beyond that will be contingent upon MvC2's performance (and naturally, Marvel has considerable say in that decision too).

So blame Marvel for not being able to release this project in the retail scene.

Sven: No, don't blame Marvel. Blame the economics of retail. We've opted to not negotiate those rights because the economics don't make sense, nor does it dovetail with what we feel works in the digital-only space.

Sooner or later, everyone will be connected.

Why did Marvel.com break the story before anyone else?

Sven: Contractually, Marvel was allowed to break the news first. It was a point we'd agreed upon. They too are big fans of the series and were happy to reach an agreement with us. So far it's been a great partnership.

Do you think we'll see a DC vs. Marvel game?

Sven: I'd suspect you will never see a game with both DC and Marvel in it. The licensing and approval ramifications make my head spin (not to mention the cost of such a project in just licensing load).
