Capcom's just announced (via Game Trailers) it'll be bringing Marvel Vs Capcom 2 to iPad and iPhone next week. The game's previously seen release on Dreamcast, Xbox and PS2, followed by an XBLA/PSN rerelease three years ago; it's not clear whether the game will incorporate that version's minor changes or work fresh from the arcade original, but you'll be able to see for yourself come April 25.

Launched in 2000, MvC2 marked a departure for Capcom's “Vs” series, abandoning the strict faithfulness to the company's landmark SF2 control scheme in favor of a (slightly) simpler button layout. Don't be fooled, though: you still ought to invest in a good wipe-clean screen protector (or an iCade) before buying this game, because your iOS screen is going to be covered in sticky thumbprints after a couple of days with this thing.

    Agreed. This is a waste. It should be ported the 3ds and vita. Those touch controls do not work for fighters.

    I would hate to try playing this with touch controls. Seems like a pointless port.

    Why is this going on iOS when it be going on Steam or other systems that actually have buttons? Touch controls are TERRIBLE for fighting games.
