Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes (マーヴル VS. カプコン クラッシュ オブ スーパーヒーローズ Māvuru vs. Kapukon Kurasshu Obu Sūpā Hīrōzu?) is a crossover fighting game produced by Capcom. It is the fifth Marvel Comics-licensed fighting game made by Capcom and the third game in the Marvel vs. Capcom series but the first game to have the series' title. It was released in arcades in 1998, and on home consoles in 1999.

In contrast to X-Men vs. Street Fighter and Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, the game features characters from numerous Capcom franchises such as Mega Man and Strider, rather than just Street Fighter characters.

GameplayEdit

While the gameplay was typical of the Marvel vs. Capcom series, Marvel vs. Capcom was distinguishable by two features: the ability to summon assist characters, and the Duo Team Attack.

Unlike the previous game in the series, the point character of a Marvel vs. Capcom team could not summon the off screen partner for an assist attack; instead, an assist character was randomly selected before the match began. This character could be summoned a limited number of times in battle to attack the opponent in parallel. Codes could be used to force the system to select a certain assist character.

The Duo Team Attack allowed a player to control both characters on his or her team simultaneously for a brief period of time; the characters had unlimited use of their super moves during this time. Since some characters had hard-to-avoid super moves that did substantial damage if blocked, the Duo Team Attack led to tactics that were oriented around activating it before your opponent could. Since the PlayStation port only allowed one character to play a point, a Duo Team Attack would call the assist character repeatedly without cost during its duration.

PlayStation portEdit

The PlayStation version of the game (titled as EX Edition in Japan), differs from the arcade version in that players are unable to switch characters on-the-fly, reducing the secondary character to an assist role only. Significantly, this removes the tag-team aspect of the game, which is considered by some to be one of its defining characteristics. The PlayStation version instead offers a "Cross over" mode where each player chooses one character, and the second character for each team is a mirror of the opponent's pick. In this mode, the players may switch characters at will, but the teams must always be identical. This compromise is necessitated by the console's small memory size -- the use of identical teams alleviates the memory requirements.

Secret Playable Characters (Capcom) Info
Roll She is one of the few secret characters to have her own unique sprites (although they appear in Mega Man's victory poses). She is short enough to be able to duck from most attacks. However she tends to hover in the air due to her dress and runs slowly due to her short legs. Her attacks mimic that of Mega Man, but are weaker and come out slower because of added animation of equipping a Buster weapon.
Shadow Lady A cyborg palette swap of Chun-Li, similar in style to Shadow from Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter but with a different variety of cyborg-based moves. Her speed also increases, similar to Shadow.
Lilith A Morrigan with Lilith's palette and attacks, they seem to have mind-swaped. Usually refered to by fans as Morrilith.

Trivia Edit

  • The final boss Onslaught (Professor X's psyche manifested) can be selected once the player completes the game once with any team of characters in the Playstation version. Unlocked on Dreamcast version after unlocking all secret characters. Onslaught is located below Wolverine in the Playstation version. In the Dreamcast version the player must select "Onslaught Mode", which allows the player to use only Onslaught, and all fights take place in Onslaught's stage.
  • One "Secret File" image from the arcade flyer depicts an imaginary action figure box set featuring Venom and Captain Commando. Another imagines the game as a "fictitious" Rockman V. There did exist a Rockman World 5, known outside of Japan as Mega Man V. This game existed four years before the release of Marvel vs. Capcom. Capcom characters appear as robots in a super deformed style (barring Mega Man) and Marvel characters only slightly resemble their original versions.
