Sven had higher sales expectations for Marvel vs. Capcom Origins than it's tracked to, still a lot they can do to drive more Sales on Marvel vs. Capcom Origins, the compilation title which has both Marvel vs. Capcom 1 and Marvel Super Heroes, hasn't sold up to Christian Svensson's expectations so far, he said recently via the Capcom Forums. The title was released on Sept. 25, 2012 for $14.99 USD.


Svensson added that there's still a lot more Capcom can do to drive sales, though, so things may turn around for that particular game.

Christian also talked about the decision to not include trials and add four playable characters instead of three, into Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. There's no word on which fighter would have been omitted if they added trials, Evil Ryu, Oni, Yang or Yun, but it does show how much effort goes into some of these other modes Capcom works on.

Jonny: When will Marvel vs. Capcom Origins 2 be released? Did Marvel vs. Capcom Origins sell very well?

Svensson: No plans for additional titles at this time. I'd had higher expectations for MvC:O than it's tracking to. That said, it's still early days and there's lots we can still do to drive sales.

Rafa: Why didn't Capcom implement trials for Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu and Oni in SSF4 AE?

Svensson: It was asked several times years ago when AE first came out.

The reasons if I recall were primarily schedule and budget driven. The option was to go for four characters instead of three with trials. It was felt there was more value in an additional character rather than the trials.
