Nintendo Power: Tatsunoko vs Capcom Coming To US

Illustration for article titled Nintendo Power: Tatsunoko vs Capcom Coming To US

Much requested crossover fighter Tatsunoko vs Capcom is coming to the U.S., according to a NeoGaf poster and magazine scan sent to Kotaku.


A scan from reader Andrew shows what is supposed to be an image from inside Nintendo Power magazine for an article entitled When Heroes Collide. A paragraph in the top right corner of the article reads:

They said it couldn't happen, but it is! Fighting extravaganza Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is coming to North America.

Tatsunoko vs Capcom is a fighting title already released in Japan that features a collection of characters from Capcom games and another group from Japanese animation studio Tatsunoku Production.

Tatsunoko may best be know, by me, for their work on G-Force. (I used to watch it as a kid in Thailand.)

Could this be one of Capcom's two secret games for E3? We've reached out to the company for comment and will update if they respond.

I just don't see the market here in the US. The demographic of Wii owners (young children and old parents) have no idea who any of the Tatsunoko characters are, and the fighting controls in the game are too bizarre for the average hardcore fighting fan to pick up (I tried it, hated it). I don't know, I guess we'll see how it sells.
