    "The demand for a downloadable release of Marvel vs Capcom 2 is high; we don't need to tell you that. When the game was rated by the ESRB, we found ourselves as giddy as a Sentinel hunting down rogue mutants. Don't even get us started on a possible teaser site for the game: tu4ar.com

    The domain appears to be a reference to the catchy character select song "Take You for a Ride," and further inspection of the site reveals a giant "2" (in the background of the countdown clock), which is similar in font to the Marvel vs Capcom 2 logo. The teaser countdown appears to imply that in 6 days the site will evolve into a real web site, complete with stuff to click and actual content. (Presumably, this countdown could coincide with a press embargo being established at CAPTIVATE09 this week.)

    That's not all, though. There are two telling domains that are connected to the URL in question: http://dev02.capcomusa.net/ and http://dev02.capcomusa.net/mvc2gmt/ (Update: It gives a "site not found" error now). If you click the latter link, the same teaser from tu4ar.com shows up. Oh, and a Capcom Unity tweet and recent auction offer further evidence as to the creator of tu4ar.com.

    Still, it's important to remain skeptical. All of this evidence -- compelling as it may be -- is by no means official confirmation. We'll update just as soon as the countdown expires and Capcom announces ... well, whatever it's going to announce."
