Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is bringing Marvel vs. Capcom and Marvel Super Heroes to to consoles in September.

Marvel vs. Capcom Origins will bundle Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes together on XBLA and PSN this September, according a press release from Capcom.

The downloadable title will include updates like HD graphics, dynamic challenges for in-game achievements, unlockables and replay saving. Underneath the hood, Marvel vs. Capcom Origins' eight-player multiplayer lobbies will be powered by GGPO, a networking library designed to minimize the lag that frame-sepcific fighting games demand.

As the name suggests, these 90s-era brawlers beat a path that lead to Capcom's long-running Marvel vs. Capcom series. Both released initially as arcade titles, Marvel Super Heroes features heroes and villains from the Marvel universe while Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes adds Capcom characters and two-on-two matches to the fight, finally allowing Mega Man and Venom to fight Wolverine and Zangief.

Marvel vs. Capcom Origins will retail for 1200 Microsoft Points on XBLA and $14.99 on PSN, but attendees at EVO and Comic-Con can get their fists on playable versions before then. Until then, everybody can watch the announcement trailer below.
