Marvel vs. Capcom Origins announced, coming to Xbox Live and PSN September

Thank you Christian Svensson.

Capcom has made an announcement today (July 5) and it's a doozy. The company will be releasing Marvel vs. Capcom (MvC) Origins on Xbox Live and PSN Sept. 2012. This will be a compilation of MvC: Clash of Super Heroes and Marvel Super Heroes.

So how much will two classic Capcom fighters in one cost? $14.99 on PSN and 1200 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live. This is the same price as the 2009 re-release of MvC2.

Check out the press release from Capcom as well as the official trailer for MvC Origins, after the jump.
