Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes (マーヴル vs. カプコン2 ニューエイジオブヒーローズ) is a Sega NAOMI and Sega Dreamcast fighting game and a sequel to Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes.

Gameplay

On the Dreamcast, content is unlocked in Marvel vs. Capcom 2 through an in-game shop. While Western versions use a single in-game currency generated from playing the game normally, the Japanese version uses three currencies, with rewards generated from networked matches and by taking a VMU to a Marvel vs. Capcom 2 arcade machine and playing the game there.

As no forms of online play are supported outside of Japan, and the arcade cabinet significantly rarer, this feature was dropped in the overseas editions of the game (and indeed all future ports to other platforms).
