Capcom has announced that both Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 along with all DLC will be removed from both the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.

Though Capcom has not revealed when the games will be removed, it has announced a sale, offering 50 per cent off Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC on PSN until December 17 in North America and December 19 in Europe. Capcom has not announced any sales for XBLA, with its DLC being removed on December 26.

Checking on the PlayStation Store, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has remained full price at $29.99 while Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is currently on sale on PSN for $7.49 or $3.75 with a PlayStation Plus subscription.

Capcom has not given a reason as to why the games will be removed from digital download. It is also unclear if the PlayStation Vita version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be affected. This announcement comes of the heel that
Konami requested "Skull Girls" to be removed from PSN leaving more questions then answers for both companies.
