Capcom says there could be a chance for a new MvC game

The fighting game community received a enormous Capcom recently surprised everyone with the announcement of Marvel vs. Capcom Fighting Collection: Arcade Classics. This has raised the question of whether fans might see new installments in the future, and it now seems like there’s a real possibility.

In an exclusive interview with Dexerto, the collection’s producer Shuhei Matsumoto said that “there might be a chance for a new Marvel vs Capcom game.” He feels the same way about “a new SNK game based on Capcom” if fans are willing to show their support.

“The development team at Capcom has big dreams… if that were to happen, it would take some time and effort to create and release those kinds of games, but in the short term, what we can do now is at least reintroduce these older games to a new audience, to people who may not have the chance to play them, because they may not be available on modern or current platforms.”

“…What we can at least do now is prove that these series exist. We love these games. We hope you guys will too, and maybe in the future, if people become familiar with these series, there may be future opportunities to make bigger games.”

Again, it all depends on how much fans of the series support the upcoming Fighting Collection. It was also asked if there were any future plans for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 definitive (like reverting netcode) now that MvC is back, but according to the producer, it’s a matter of “timing” and taking it “one step at a time.”

Matsumoto also mentions how Marvel has shown interest in tournaments like EVO and “knows that people really love the series and really want these games to be available on modern platforms.” These comments from the Marvel vs. Capcom Fighting Collection producer follow SNK’s announcement of SNK vs Capcom: SVC Mayhem for Switch, PlayStation and Steam.
