Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter
Marvel Super Heroes vs.
Street Fighter is the fourth Marvel Comics-licensed fighting game produced by Capcom (see Marvel vs. Capcom series). It is a sequel to X-Men vs. Street Fighter which replaces most of the X-Men characters with characters from Marvel Super Heroes. In an attempt to balance the previous games' problems, the game engine was altered, although it remained aesthetically the same. The game was released for the arcade in 1997, Sega Saturn in 1998 and Sony PlayStation in 1999.
The game uses the same tag-team format previously employed in X-Men vs. Street Fighter. In addition to all the features introduced, the player can now summon their partner to perform one of their special moves without changing their currently-controlled character.
Most of the Street Fighter characters from the previous game returned, with the exception of Cammy and Charlie, who are replaced by Dan and Sakura. However, all of the X-Men characters from the previous game (with the exception of Cyclops, Wolverine, and Omega Red) are replaced with characters from Marvel Super Heroes.
Selecting from a roster of Marvel characters and Capcom's own Street fighters, players engage in a fight to the death, using screen-filling flashy projectiles and other super moves. The game also has a myriad of other hidden characters. The game ends when either player runs out of energy for both heroes. Players may also switch characters in mid-round.
