What are the differences between each release?

Arcade:

  • The first release, and the preferred platform to play MVC1 on. Everything this wiki discusses will be referencing this version of the game. Unfortunately, the only way to play the secret characters is to enter their secret code every time, unlike the console versions where they are unlockable. Otherwise, standard arcade version of a fighting game.

PlayStation Port

  • The PlayStation version of the game, titled Marvel vs. Capcom EX Edition in Japan, differs from the arcade version, in that players are unable to switch characters on-the-fly, reducing the secondary character to an assist role only. Significantly, this removes the tag-team aspect of the game, which is considered by some to be one of its defining characteristics. The PlayStation version instead offers a "Cross over" mode where each player chooses one character, and the second character for each team is a mirror of the opponent's pick. In this mode, the players may switch characters at will, but the teams must always be identical. This compromise is most likely necessitated by the console's small memory size -- the use of identical teams alleviates the memory requirements.

Dreamcast

  • It includes a training mode and is nearly arcade perfect, aside from a slightly different audio quality.

MVC Origins Collection

  • PlayStation Network/Xbox Live Arcade re-release with a whole slew of new goodies and rollback GGPO netcode.
