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

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 localized version of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes off.

Christian Svensson, Vice Preseident of Strategic Planning and Business Development at Capcom, explains a U.S. release is “Not determined yet. There are a lot of licensing issues around the title given that those properties are held by different companies across the West and they vary by territory greatly. It was created as a Japan-only project but we're investigating.” Compared to the straight out rejection for Resident Evil 0 this quote sounds positive, but licensing issues are a problem. We don’t know the whole cast yet, but would you be content getting a North American version of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes with a slightly different roster. Would it be OK to replace the unlicensed Yatterman characters with the Samurai Pizza Cats?
