We’re not looking for a spiritual successor here, people. We want the real deal. We want true 2D action, true near-death experiences prevented by a single double jump, and true hardcore difficulty. We want it all. Sadly, with the death of the 16-bit era, it appears that has resulted in the death of this franchise, as well. Arthur in MvC3 can suffice as a nice shout-out and all, but we‘re really hankering for another game in the series. Capcom: make it happen.
