When we said that Marvel vs Capcom 2 was hitting the App Store "next week" last week, I think we all assumed that meant it'd be in the standard barrage of Wednesday night releases. Well, this is not the case, as the game is already available in most international regions and should appear for download on the U.S. App Store at 11:00 PM Eastern tonight.
First impressions on our forums are starting to roll in, and so far it seems like the game is what you'd expect in that if you can handle the virtual controls, you'll be in for a good time. Some forum members with 3GS-level hardware are noting some slowdown, but anything more recent than that seems to be A-OK. Also, the game is universal, which only makes things more awesome.
We'll take a closer look at the game in the not too distant future.
