Revenge: Friend Or Foe is an upcoming fighting game being developed by Capcom and is slated for a 2013 release. The game involves heroes and villains from the Marvel Universe fighting each other, though not that much has been confirmed about why there fighting . So far only 10 playable characters have been confirmed.
Little is known about the single-player story of Revenge: Friend Or Foe. However, is has been revealed the game will take a relatively dark tone. Additionally, all the character designs seem to be heavily inspired by the Marvel NOW! character redesigns.
Like Street Fighter, Revenge: Friend Or Foe is a 2D fighting game featuring numerous Marvel characters. Characters will be organized according to skill features: Power Users and Gadget Users. Each type can interact with their environments differently. All characters will have several unique abilities and special moves. The game will feature a single-player component in addition to multiplayer and tournament features.
The game also features the light, medium, and heavy attack array traditional to fighting games. These attacks can trigger various move sets, can chain together to form combos, and will gradually fill up a super meter. Characters will also have "character trait" buttons that activate unique fighting styles and abilities.
While modeled somewhat on Street Fighter, Revenge features a new fighting system more similar to Mortal Kombat and much more ways of fighting. During a combo, the defending player can activate them by pressing forward and X.
Game stages will feature destructible environments and character costumes will deteriorate over the course of the battle. Some locations will feature objects that players can use. Ms. Lion (Aunt May's dog), for example, can bark and scratch at players in the Queens location.
