Viewtiful Joe Smashing His Way Into Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom

By Spencer . November 3, 2008 . 11:10am

The list of characters in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom keeps getting better. At a Capcom event in Shinagawa three more fighters were revealed including Viewtiful Joe! Judging by this screenshot Joe appears to have his VFX powers too. Slow motion or hyper speed fighting would be an interesting twist, but would it give Joe too much […]

By Spencer . October 24, 2008 . 4:12am

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation Of Heroes Classic Controller vs. Wiimote

By Spencer . October 21, 2008 . 9:52pm

  At Tokyo Game Show I spent a good amount of time with the Wii version of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes. I started out playing with Ryu since I imagined he handle similarly to the Street Fighter games. For the most part Ryu has the same moves. Good old reliable Ryu, but […]

The Gatchaman / Battle of the Planets license is a key property for the Tatsunoko side in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. Two characters from Gatchaman are confirmed for the game Ken the Eagle and Jun the Swan. She’s so new she wasn’t even playable in the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom build Capcom brought to Tokyo Game Show.

Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom "Probably Not" Coming To North America

By Spencer . October 10, 2008 . 12:19pm

The most disheartening comment I heard at Tokyo Game Show came from my meeting with Capcom. I asked multiple representatives if they were planning to publish Tatsunko vs. Capcom: Cross Generations of Heroes in North America or Europe and I got the same answer “probably not.” The key reason seems to be the licensing. Tatsunko’s […]

Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom: Cross Generation Of Heroes EO

By Spencer . September 22, 2008 . 11:01am

Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom: Cross Generation is coming out on the Wii. Yeah! Great, but how is Capcom going to make a four button arcade game work with just the Wiimote? This solution could have been solved with an awkward mix of nunchuck buttons and Wii remote buttons, but Capcom opted for a simplified control scheme […]

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: The Shooting Gallery

By Spencer . September 19, 2008 . 10:29am

The home version of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes includes more than a few extra characters. Capcom is creating original mini-games with easy to operation motion control just in case you’re planning a Tatsunoko vs. Capcom party. Don’t cringe yet, these mini-games look pretty entertaining. One mini-game lets four players point and shoot […]

Rock Volnutt and Yatterman villains crossover in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom

By Spencer . August 28, 2008 . 2:45pm

A shaky-cam video already confirmed Rock Volnutt, aka the Mega Man from Mega Man Legends, as one of the Capcom characters in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. This scan sent in by Doug (thanks!!) shows a helmet-less Mega Man can shoot a stream of bullets in one of the screenshots. To Rock’s right there is a trio […]

Watch Tatsunoko vs. Capcom played at EVO

By Spencer . August 12, 2008 . 6:52am

This past weekend Tatsunoko vs. Capcom made its debut in the USA at the EVO 2008 Championship series. Capcom chose to make EVO a test location, a smart choice considering the caliber of 2D fighting prowess at the tournament. The clip below doesn’t even have all the announced characters. Gold Lightan is notably absent. The […]

This is Tatsunoko vs. Capcom

By Rolando . July 9, 2008 . 1:00am

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, announced a while back, is better known now as the spiritual successor to Marvel vs. Capcom. For a while, though, we were treated to screens of some of the game's characters and marveling at the game's graphical style; yetmany were wondering just how good does the game look in motion. Though some […]

Capcom “investigating” a way to release Cross Generation of Heroes in the USA

By Spencer . July 1, 2008 . 7:30pm

Given the complexity of the licensing issues, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes isn’t guaranteed to come out anywhere except Japan. Sure, some arcades are bound to import the Taito Type X2 board, but the fate of the inevitable console release is up in the air. The good news is Capcom isn’t writing a […]

By Spencer . June 30, 2008 . 12:37am

Before Street Fighter IV feasts on 100 yen coins in Japanese arcades on July 18, you can play Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes. The catch is you have to be around Tokyo and visit Akihabara Hey or Ikebukuro GIGO between the days of July 10 – 13. Osaka residents can catch the location […]

By Spencer . June 19, 2008 . 11:31pm

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes is not going to be Gatchaman vs. Street Fighter. Capcom just revealed two new characters in the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom online comic. One of them is Batsu Ichimonji, the protagonist of the two Rival School games. It’s great to see Batsu back in action, but after years of […]
