CPS-2 fans rejoice! Forthcoming back catalogue rummage Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is set to feature the first arcade perfect home port of Marvel Super Heroes, a candy coloured seizure fighter from the mid-90s. Marvel Super Heroes originally lurched onto both major fifth generation consoles in 1997 - the PlayStation port suffered from slow down and missing animation frames (this from a console Sony initially deemed too bleeding edge for 2D riff-raff), and whilst the Saturn version could boast more complete animation cycles and some nifty level effects, it was still prone to occasional frame rate chug despite making use of the 4 MB RAM cartridge that later allowed for a string of arcade perfect Capcom brawlers. Marvel Super Heroes is joined in this bundle by the original Marvel vs. Capcom. Pointedly not included are the rest of Cacom's House of Ideas fighters X-Men: Children of the Atom, X-Men vs. Street Fighter, and Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter. No doubt Capcom are holding them back for an Origins Volume 2.
