Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Arcade Game in the Works
We all have fond memories of the Marvel Vs. Capcom series of fighting games. One of the great injustices in gaming history occurred when Capcom lost that license to the, uh, geniuses at EA.
This is almost too good to be true, though: TATSUNOKO VS. CAPCOM: CROSS GENERATION OF HEROES is in the works. Tatsunoko is the animation studio wholly or partly responsible for classic anime series such as Super Dimensional Fortress Macross, Mach Go Go (known as Speed Racer in North America), Gatchaman (released as Battle Of The Planets and G-Force in North America) and Yatterman.
So far, Ken and Chun-Li appear to be confirmed, as are Ken from Gatachman and the titular character from Casshern. At least as far as anybody can tell from the crappy scan from an upcoming Famitsu Magazine.
No word on a home release for this game yet, but it's hard to imagine it not appearing on home consoles. Let's just hope Capcom doesn't think that the Tatsunoko characters are too obscure for American tastes.
Thanks for Oshi to first pointing this out to me via his blog. See his existing discussion thread here.
Update: Hitsu provided a much better scan.
