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

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 properties are handled by different companies often with different licensing agreements.

North America will never know the joy of seeing Gold Lightan stomp on Ryu and crush Yatterman with his giant fist. Giant characters like Gold Lightan and PTX-40A (a Vital Suit from Lost Planet) tower over other characters. They also are immune to knockback from a puny human sized character. One of the most amusing things to test out is pushing a character into a corner while they’re attacking you. I have more impressions of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom coming including a comparison with the Classic Controller and easy operation control schemes. The latter isn’t as bad as I expected it would be.
