Marvel Vs Capcom Fighting Collection Arcade Classics

Xbox Fans Lose it After Latest Capcom Fighting Collection Skips The Platform

Xbox isn’t getting the latest Marvel Vs Capcom Fighting Collection Arcade Classics and fans aren’t happy about it. During the excellent Nintendo Direct yesterday, Capcom announced the Marvel Vs Capcom Fighting Collection Arcade Classics. This compilation of fighting games includes some iconic releases in the series.

Of course, they revolve around mainly the “Marvel” series and include X-Men: Children of The Atom, Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men Vs Street Fighter, Marvel Super Heroes Vs Street Fighter, Marvel Vs Capcom and Marvel Vs Capcom 2.

The compilation marks the first time many of these fighting games will be released on modern gaming consoles. However, Xbox is missing out as Capcom currently has no plans to launch Marvel Vs Capcom Fighting Collection Arcade Classics on Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S. The game is set to launch on PS4, PS5, Switch and PC.

Following the announcement, fans have taken to social media to complain about the matter. It seems that once again, Xbox owners are getting the short end of the stick. Keep in mind that just a few weeks ago, Sony announced the LEGO Horizons Adventures game for PC, PS5 and Nintendo Switch – once again skipping Xbox.

It has become a common practice somehow that a number of new games skip an Xbox launch for some reason. Fans have had enough and are being quite vocal about it online. So much so that “No Xbox” started trending on X. The topic is littered with various complaints about not only Marvel Vs Capcom Fighting Collection Arcade Classics but other titles too.

In the case of this new Capcom game, however, users report that Xbox currently doesn’t support MT Framework which is Capcom’s “older” game engine. The engine has been used to power a number of games in the past including Lost Planet, Monster Hunter Stories and a number of older Resident Evil games.

While the company has since shifted most of its development over to RE Engine, MT Framework is still required to run these older games which were originally built on the platform. The engine was originally created to support multi-threading on PS3 and Xbox 360 but Microsoft’s latest console doesn’t support the tools.

Of course, fans are finding this a hard pill to swallow and instead of just accepting that technical restrictions prevent the launch, they are demanding Microsoft make a plan to accommodate them. One entitled post from user Karim Jovian on X says the lack of Marvel Vs Capcom Fighting Collection Arcade Classics on Xbox is a “Huge fail” and Xbox is to blame for the situation.

Capcom currently has no plans to port the game to Xbox or rework MT Framework to support the platform. If you want to play this 24-year-old game and you’re on Xbox, you will need to play it on PC, PS4 or Switch. The game is expected to launch sometime in 2024.
