I love the Capcom vs. Marvel and SNK series, some of the greatest fighting games IMHO. But I never heard of Tatsunoko, and the idea of 3d fighter kind of bugs me. But If or when this game hits the states I'll definitely give a go at it.

You probably know some peice of their work. Speed Racer or Gatchaman most likely, perhaps you know Gatchaman as Battle of the Planets or whatever it was called in the dub.

Hmmm. Interesting. Obviously the graphics are different from all of the past vs. games so I wonder if the gameply will be completely different as well. I hope it's more of the over the top type of gameplay that the Marvel Vs. games had opposed to the SNK Vs. games. Eitherway I'm buying it.

Immediately, when i saw this I went:



AWWWWW FUCK YEAH! Anyone who knows me, knows I'm a fighter fan, a capcom fan, and a Tatsunoko Superhero fan. So I'm SO game for it.

But I never heard of Tatsunoko

Tatsunoko is an anime company, one of the first on the map. IIRC their first big hit was Mach Go Go Go (Speed Racer), but they continued on producing hits like Space Knight Tekkaman and Gatchaman in the 1970s, all three of the Robotech shows in the 80s, and Tekkaman Blade in he 1990s.

I'll be disappointed if Go Mifune isn't a playable character.

Poofta!

If the Samurai Pizza Cats don't show up in this game I'm going to go bust some kneecaps at Capcom HQ.

Samurai Pizza Cats is under tha company!!! Oh hell nah! They better be in that game. I still remember some of that theme song and I barely watched that show. That show used to air in the mornings where I lived but if I was home and that show was on then I knew I was going to be late for the bus to school. SPC FTW.

Indeed. Wibbley Wobbley Timey Wimey and all that. :D


I'd also expect there to be the mainstays like Yatterman and such in the game.

I don't know what to say... are the characters poly or sprite based? I'm confused. :?

TvsC uses 3D character models. Yeah, it's not 2D. I don't think Capcom will do another 2D fighter again. :(

Oh well, at least we have SNK still! ;)

Well, at least 3D is getting better for character representation. From the still image, I couldn't tell which. Which is a rather nice improvement. Still love the hand-drawn craft though. So sad. :( As long as the field doesn't whirl around too much I should be alright playing.

yeah, the guys at SNKPlaymore are stubborn bastards when it comes to doing anything else than 2D based fighters...and can you blame them after that whole 3D KoF monstrosity.

Sweet! Tekkaman Looks Awesome.


Also: I have to say that the design of the game looks A LOT like Street Fighter 4. It's a 2d playing field with 3d poly characters.


Dammit, if I have to import this bastard I will.

I really hope there is a domestic release for this, if not I'll import it though, it looks amazing. Anyone know if any other Tatsunoko stuff is coming out, being redone or re-released in North America to ensure this hits along with it? I don't expect Speed Racer will ensure we see it after that movie tanked.

G-Force/Battle of the Planets/Gatchaman AND Rival Schools?? ...sweet... sign me up (praying it plays well).

Oh HELL yes. If they're in here, I'll definitely be playing this game. I'm not a huge fan of fighting games, but I love playing them nonetheless... so hell, let's get it on!

i like this idea better than mortal kombat vs DC even though the animes in this one dont really appeal to me (wears anti-flame boots and shield). DBZ vs capcom, lolz hmm

Please please please please Samurai Pizza Cats Show Up and Save the Day Once Again. Who do you call when you want some pepperoni? SAMURAI PIZZA CATS!!!

Surprised to see an Onimusha character (even though it's the worst one) I thought one of the leads from Devil May Cry would be a much more likely choice.

I'm actually really happy to see Alex, he was my favorite character from SF III. The one time Capcom made a grappler that wasn't just a huge punishingly slow character with double 360 moves.

I'm really liking the look of this. Can't wait for the PS3 port.

Capcom says "NO!" to US arcades!

So maybe we'll see some form of this game via console, even if Tatsunoko is removed and replaced with something else.

New Japanese console release date!

December 11th for the Wii!

It may be prudent to get an SD card finally and download the region free program.

Also it's no surprise Capcom is skimping out on the US arcade release, they did the same with SF4. They've pulled out of our region and are concentrating on Japanese arcades only.
