More HD Remixes In The Works?

March 16, 2009Written by Joseph Peterson

Capcom recently talked to and told them that they are in no way done with doing “HD Remixes”.  Full interview follows.

Great news for fighting game fans. Capcom isn’t done with HD Remixes, and one fighting game that could be next for the treatment is Marvel vs. Capcom 2, the company has revealed.

Capcom has enjoyed terrific success with Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, released on Xbox LIVE late last year and more recently on PSN. As of late last year, official figures showed the game had sold 250,000 units, shattering both day one and week one sales records.

Speaking to, Capcom’s Christian Svensson, vice president, business development and strategic planning, said that while “not every game needs it”, the company was “potentially” going to apply the HD Remix treatment to other fighting games in its back catalogue.

He said: “Are we done doing HD Remixes? No we’re not done. But the next ones that we do will be even better, based on what we learned.”

When asked if Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was a game that didn’t need the HD Remix treatment, Svensson replied: “I won’t say it doesn’t need it. Marvel would be great to do. There’s obviously a fan base for it. It’s probably our most requested title. Unfortunately, I wish I had news to share on that front but I don’t.”

The chances of Capcom making Marvel vs. Capcom 3, however, are less likely. “I would never say never but I would say the barriers to doing that are much higher than the barriers for MvC2,” said Svensson.

So I do have one question for you. What games would you like to see get the “HD Remix” treatment?
