The arcade game that stole our hearts, and lunch money for tokens, during our high school and college days is now available for your latest iOS devices. That’s right! Marvel vs Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes can now be purchased in the iTunes App Store.

Just released on April 24, 2012, Marvel vs Capcom 2 brought back your favorite Marvel and Capcom characters at the mercy of your fingertips, allowing you to play 56 characters in its roster. You get to start with 24 characters but you can unlock the rest as you progress through the game.

The controls are touch-optimized so you get to control the gameplay through flicks, swipes and taps. Versus mode battles are available as well and you can challenge other iOS users via Bluetooth. Check out the sample gameplay below:
