A brand new fighting game arcade cabinet is being added to the official Arcade1Up line up. The company announced today during their special Evo 2022 live stream that the highly demanded Marvel vs. Capcom 2 will be receiving the home arcade treatment.

Fans have been awaiting the return of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 in some way, shape, or form for a long time now, and this will be the first port of the game we've seen released since it launched digitally on PlayStation 3 and the Xbox Live Arcade back in 2009.

During the announcement, it was revealed that the cabinet will include 8 games in total. The full line up of games is as follows:

Marvel vs Capcom 2
Marvel vs Capcom
Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter
X-Men vs Street Fighter
Marvel Super Heroes
X-Men: Children of the ATOM
X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse
Marvel Super Heroes in War of the Gems

The games that we see on the list that have been featured in other Arcade1Up cabinets are crossplay with the MvC2 unit. Those who play on the new machine will be able to link up with players on past cabinets in the aforementioned titles.

Pre-orders for the MvC2 cabinet are set to go live on September 8, 2022. The product will ship just a few weeks after that date.

On the stream, Justin Wong noted that the development team has aimed at making as close to an arcade perfect port as possible with this release. It was also confirmed that all 56 characters will be unlocked right from the jump.

The MvC2 arcade machine will feature online play as well.

This machine boasts the classic Marvel vs. Capcom 2 artwork on each side of the cabinet. Hulk, Zangief, Spider-Man, and Ryu can be seen on one side, and to really capture that authentic arcade feel two coin slots and coin doors can be seen on the front.

Much like the premium Arcade1Up cabinets, this Marvel vs. Capcom 2 machine comes equipped with a light up marquee and will likely feature an LED lit control panel.

The Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Arcade1Up cabinet will come with a $599.99 USD price tag, and more information can be found on the official website.
