Marvel vs. Capcom 2 hits Xbox LIVE Arcade

Get excited. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is available on Xbox LIVE Arcade.

The fighting title — which we’ve covered exhaustively — launched without a hitch earlier this morning. Priced at 1,200 Microsoft Moon Dollars, purchasers can expect all the fun of the original releases of the title without the fat. MvC 2 has improved menus and zero locked characters. In addition to that, it has a robust online component, three visual filters, and widescreen support.

Also, Zangief. The game has Zangief.

If you’re tired of Street Fighter IV, King of Fighters 12 or BlazBlue, it might do you some good to try out the MvC 2 demo. It’s fun. We promise.

MvC 2 is slated to hit PlayStation Network on August 13th.
