All of the playable characters from Tatsunoko vs. Capcom will be in the North American version except for one. Who got cut?
“I guess it’s OK to tell everyone this now,” Ryota Niitsuma, Producer of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom said in an interview with Siliconera. “He’s [Hakushon Daimao] not in the game. We had some licensing issues with him so we weren’t able to obtain him for the American version.”
Hakushon Daimao is a genie and the lead character in a 1970s anime series. Capcom added him to the home version of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. Unfortunately, Daimao and his math mini-game will remain in Japan. New characters will replace Daimao, but Niitsuma was careful not to reveal them at this time.
Look for the full interview with Niitsuma, which includes details about the network mode and answers to many of your questions later this week.
