Classic arcade brawler Marvel vs. Capcom 2 will be duking it out with other iPhone titles for App Store supremacy when it debuts this Wednesday.

Lovers of the 2000 beat-'em-up will be pleased to hear that all 56 members of the original roster are making the jump across to iOS, meaning no fan will be left unserviced.

Finally, I can fulfil my life's ambition of pitting Captain America against Resi's Jill Valentine while I'm queuing for groceries. Capcom - how did you know?

The Variable System will remain intact after crossing the platform divide, allowing players to tag in other fighters at will, and execute the devastating Team Hyper Combo.

It's going to be interesting to see how those high-speed combos translate to the touchscreen, but I suspect there is a twitching legion of eager thumbs ready to take on the challenge.

If you want to get to grips with Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on iPhone, mark April 25th in your calendar with a large, shaky cross.
