Attention classic crossover fans, we have dates.

We knew Marvel vs. Capcom Origins (MvC Origins) would be coming to the PSN store and Xbox Live Marketplace, but the dates were never confirmed. Today (August 30), Capcom has revealed when the Marvel Super Heroes and MvC remakes will hit your console.

MvC Origins will land on PSN Sept. 25 and Xbox Live will receive the title a day later. The price is $14.99 on PSN and 1200 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live.

See the press release below.

"We’re pleased to confirm that the previously announced MARVEL® VS. CAPCOM® ORIGINS will be available to download in North America on PlayStation Network on September 25th for $14.99 and on Xbox LIVE Arcade on September 26th for 1200 Microsoft Points.
MARVEL VS. CAPCOM ORIGINS is a compilation of two of the most popular arcade games of the ‘90s - Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes. These two classic games are kept arcade-perfect, while adding a host of features sure to tap into arcade nostalgia while meeting today’s online needs.  MARVEL VS. CAPCOM ORIGINS is jam-packed with Marvel and Capcom fan-favorite characters and crazy, beloved gameplay that throws a powerful punch.
MARVEL VS. CAPCOM ORIGINS offers both the one-on-one gameplay of Marvel Super Heroes with its unique Infinity Gem system and the two-on-two carnage of the original Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes, featuring a tag system, assists, and the wild Duo Team Attack. Bringing forth a host of features never before seen in these games, MARVEL VS. CAPCOM ORIGINS adds GGPO-enhanced online play with 8-player lobbies and spectator mode, HD graphical upgrades, dynamic challenges and replay saving."

Fernando's POV: The replay feature is a welcome addition and of course spectator mode will make its return. I enjoyed playing MvC2 on my Xbox 360 and I'm looking forward to MvC Origins.
