Tatsunoko vs Capcom
A new vs Capcom game has been announced and I am very excited. It is not a new Marvel vs Capcom or a new Capcom vs SNK. This time it is Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes.
Tatsunoko? Who? Tatsunoko is a Japanese animation company founded in 1962 by legendary anime pioneer Tatsuo Yoshida along with his brothers Kenji and Toyoharu.
Well we have a good idea of who Capcom can bring to this fighting game, but who can we expect from Tatsunoko’s side? Some of the well-known anime series that Tatsunoko have done are: Speed Racer, Gatchaman, Casshern, Neon Genesis Evangelion (co-produced with Gainax), Tekkaman Blade, Samurai Pizza Cats, and Soul Taker. The entire list of anime series from Tatsunoko can be seen here at: Wikipedia.com
So far the confirmed characters from Tatsunoko’s side are Ken Washio from the Gatchaman series and Tetsuya Azuma from the Shinzo Ningen Casshan series, and from Capcom’s side are Ryu and Chun Li from the Street Fighter series. Capcom has a ton of characters to choose from, so anything is possible for this game. We may even see Racer X from Speed Racer fighting against Mega Man, or Rei Ayanami and her Eva fighting against Captain Commando. The possibilities are endless.
So far from what I’ve seen from the screenshots, it will be tag team two on two fighting, with the ability to use your teammate to do assist attacks. The over the top super-moves looks like it will still be there.
I have always been a huge fan of Capcom’s vs series, and Tatsunoko vs Capcom won’t be an exception. I am still waiting for a Marvel vs Capcom 3, but this will do. Will we see this hit the arcades in the United States? Hopefully. Only time will tell. I can’t wait to see what other characters will me coming out for this. When I find out, I’ll be sure to let you know too.
