2D fighting game fans and Capcom fans REJOICE!!
For Capcom is coming out with another versus game.

First, it was with the heroes and villans of Marvel Comics, then they had a battle with another fighting game Giant, SNK, and a 3rd cross with Namco, an Arcade legend.....

Now, They're taking on the Anime characters of Tatsunoko, the people who brought you GachaMan, Robotech, Speed Racer, Evangelion, etc.

http://www.destructoid.com/new-2d-capcom-fighter-announced-tatsunoko-vs-capcom-cross-generation-of-heroes-87014.phtml

2D fighters live on!

I got dibs on Strider Hiryu, Megaman, and Racer-X!!!

LOL Whut, Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe WHO?

IT LOOKS SO GOOD. OMG.

Also, it's only 2-on-2 tag, ala MvC1, so yeah.

Fucking dibs on Roy Fokker and Travis Touchdown.

Of course, Capcom and SNK are my favorite fighting game companies.

Seeing a revival of the vs. series makes me happy.

Can't wait to see how they make Dante in this game.

I'd use Gatchaman and Casshern characters almost exclusively.

But we'll probably see this game.....never, something tells me this might not be brough over....although it's a fighter, so importing is an option.

I dunno, a huge majority of Tatsunoko's more popular properties that would be included are licensed over here, so it's still possible it'll make it, I'd say.

Yes, but they're mostly licensed by different companies. Actually bringing them all together would be a nightmare. Example: Jump Superstars/Ultimate Stars on the DS.

Hopefully it makes it to PS2... Otherwise I think I'll absolutely buy a PS3 for this game.

I want this game SO bad, but I doubt it will ever see a stateside release, outside of a Chinatown arcade cabinet. I also demand Karas being represented.

Also, isn't Travis Touchdown so NOT Capcom. It says "Ubisoft" on the cover, so unless it was handled by Capcom in Japan (where it bombed) I don't see it happening. Rather see Dante anyway.

Can I get a fuck yeah for Batsu? Capcom needs to take notice more of their Rival Schools character. I'd love too see characters like Zaki, Akira, Kyoko, and hell, a heck of a lot of the gang make it in.

and seriously, Capcom, if you make screw over Batsu like you did to Kyosuke in the last vs. game... I will imaginarely strangle you with fangirl rage.

Well, you could always pay out the ass for the PCB and make a cabinet. (If you don't already have a cabinet) We have a modded Wii, so... technically, while we don't have to pay for the game, my girlfriend still wants to import it.

Karas is in the roster, with some of his signature moves from the anime, so I'm pretty excited about that. I swear to god, I will main as Karas, even if he ends up sucking as a fighter. Still, his fighting style looks like it would be to my liking; he's very, very fast.

I just hope the game will be released here... With Tatsunoko's crap localized by companies from all around the board, licensing may be too much of a hassle. Same thing happened with Jump Super/Ultimate Stars, and it's probably also the same reason we'll never see U.N. Squadron on the Virtual Console... not to mention the D&D and Alien vs Predator beat-em-ups ever published on XBLA or PSN. :/ If they were I'd buy at least two digital copies of each.

I was going to sell it immediately when the US version came out... but I got lazy and never got around to it. Then I got a Naruto game for it, already had a couple JP GC games, I'll be getting Tatsunoko... yeaahh...

I also use the JP version as my own Friendcode while my brother uses our US version.

I'll be gettin' this along with the stick and a Japanese Wii. Why? Because it's cheaper than buying the arcade board. And after Capcom's bs with the SF4 boards (gotta buy 2 to play vs.!), it's downright cheap.
I'm curious though, will there be online vs. mode?

Well see, that's the funny thing about that whole situtation. The creator of that backup loader did pull the project, but the beta still works. However there is another loader that was made before this past one that works BETTER for import games.

IIRC, you only need a chip for bootlegs. In the case of imports, a boot disc will do, perhaps even just an SD card if you can get the "Homebrew Channel" app working. I recall seeing freeloader discs, along with a warning of "DO NOT UPGRADE TO 3.4" or something. However, while surfing 4chan's /v/ board, I came across links to sites with Wii-downgrading programs. So, thankfully, downgrading the Wii IS possible.

Mesoian
12-12-2008, 11:26 PM
If you can get the homebrew channel working, you can load both backups and imports without any problems.

The ease of it all is actually ludicrous. I did the whole process in about 30 minutes, only to find that the iso that I got was bad. Oh cruel fate.

And yeah, it's no secret that I'm a DMCfag, so I might have a personal bias here, but I'm also a huge Capcom fangirl in general, and out of all the Capcom characters I want to see in a fighting game, I think Dante would fit in better than anyone else.

Heh, yeah, personally I'm hoping there will be a Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and I hope it will have an epically-huge character list from both companies.

The first Capcom vs. game I played was Marvel vs. Street Fighter, and I thought it was amazing even though it had a very small character list and the only Capcom characters were from Street Fighter. Then I played Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on the Dreamcast and nearly shit myself upon seeing the characters. haha

EDIT: HOLY SHIT. Just played TvC (we "borrowed" it from the internet while waiting for the legit copy to reach our door) with my girlfriend, and... shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. Karas + Casshern = orgasm. And yes... Roll is freaking God-tier. I love Karas' fighting style, and I can appreciate what they've done for the characters' likenesses overall. Anyone can make a crappy fighting game and include popular characters (see Ehrgeiz, DBZ Budokai, Naruto Ultimate Bukakke Tournament 5, etc) but TvC truly excels at making the Tatsunoko cast FEEL like the Tatsunoko cast. Signature attacking animations from the respective series, authentic powergame attacks are EXPERTLY converted into EX attacks (like Karas' specials, holy crap). Sorry to any Smash Bros fans, but... IMO, this is the definitive fighting game for the Wii. Too bad it will never be localized.

Hmm, if it's popular enough, I hope it ports over to the PS3 and XBox360. PS3 has no region coding, so I can easily play it. Or was it already confirmed that this is a Wii exclusive?

$

RE4 was built natively on GC hardware, and they had to work to port RE4 to the less powerful PS2. It ended up selling something like double the GameCube version, and outsold it in Japan in one day.

Besides, the Japanese fighting game userbase, while primarily rooted in the arcades, is still strongly on the PS3 despite Nintendo's console dominance over there. I could easily see Capcom making a PS3/360-bound "HD Version" down the line with additional characters.

I did. And honestly, I have to say that I enjoy this way better than Street Fighter 4 (which I sold...time to change the avatar lol) or the glitcheriffic SF2 HD Remix.
Then there's SSBB. It's hilarious that all of us who worked on it hate it and would rather play Melee.

Super Cereal Dog.

I firmly believe that Naruto Ultimate ninja is bare none, the best non-traditional fighting game on the market period. One and two were a little janky, to be sure. But Ultimate Ninja 3 was damn near perfect, almost every character being totally balanced to ensure that whomever was picked, you could have an incredible fight. UN (or rather Narultimate Hero[NH]) really is tremendous, especially if you get around people who know the mechanics of the game.

I love that in that game, every character has an infinite, but if you get stuck in it, it's your own damn fault. And that's what NH is. A VERY balanced fighting game filled with flashy move sets and interesting ultra combos that are genuinely fun to watch, and if you get hit with any of that flashy stuff, it's your own damn fault. You saw it coming and you failed to dodge, and now you're getting raped. It is the PINNACLE of non-traditional fighting games.

It's better than brawl. WAY better than brawl. But it catches shit because....well...it's naruto.

Naruto, both the anime and the manga, have been terrible for SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long, but the fighting games keep me in the fandom.

A VERY balanced fighting game filled with flashy move sets and interesting ultra combos that are genuinely fun to watch, and if you get hit with any of that flashy stuff, it's your own damn fault. You saw it coming and you failed to dodge, and now you're getting raped. It is the PINNACLE of non-traditional fighting games.

It's better than brawl. WAY better than brawl. But it catches shit because....well...it's naruto.

Naruto, both the anime and the manga, have been terrible for SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long, but the fighting games keep me in the fandom.

So wait, you're saying even if someone is deeply opposed to the anime, they'll find the game enjoyable? ...Well, it worked for me with the second Bleach DS game (first one was fun but hideously broken) ...perhaps I shall give it a shot.

On the note of good anime-based games: Astro Boy Omega Factor for the GBA. If you haven't played this by now, do so. I didn't care about Astro Boy before I played it, I didn't care after I beat it, but damn, the gameplay was incredibly fun, and the crossover story they made for the game was well done, and at least got me vaguely interested in the Tezuka universe.

Plus, motherfucking Dr. Blackjack.

VERY FUCKING THIS!!!!!

An astroboy game, done by the same guys who did gunstar heroes? Oh yes please.

Anyway, with ultimate ninja? Yeah. Every con I go to that has that game, I play the first hokage once or twice, just so I can hit his ultimate combo. People walking by the game stop, and stare in awe at how badass his ultimate combo is. It is, quite literally, the most amazing hypercombo you have ever seen in your life.

Super Cereal Dog.

I firmly believe that Naruto Ultimate ninja is bare none, the best non-traditional fighting game on the market period. One and two were a little janky, to be sure. But Ultimate Ninja 3 was damn near perfect, almost every character being totally balanced to ensure that whomever was picked, you could have an incredible fight. UN (or rather Narultimate Hero[NH]) really is tremendous, especially if you get around people who know the mechanics of the game.

Naruto, both the anime and the manga, have been terrible for SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long, but the fighting games keep me in the fandom.I agree. I hate Naruto, but the game is actually quite decent. Sure, it's not that challenging to button-mash the Circle button while pressing a direction in order to do a combo, but it sure is flashy, fast paced, and fun either way. Plus, reflexes, timing, and actual skill is still very much required in order to do well against the harder CPU and human players. I really want to get Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm more-so than say...Fallout 3- *Gets punched* Hey Mesoian. Wanna make a Naruto fighting game thread? I'll be sure to post in it. =]

But you know what everyone? This is the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom thread. So back on topic, I'm hoping this game sells well then. That, like Quantum9 said, will make them want to work to get the game on other consoles for even more money. Haha. Sometimes a company's greed may be a good thing. But at the very least, I hope to see TvsC at an arcade near me. I gotta try MegaMan and Roll out for myself.

If you mean Lady from DMC, I've said it before but I seriously want to see any game where she's playable. The only reason I can think of for her not being playable in DMC is the fact that she's human and runs out of bullets in every cutscene. But she still kick ass! Any human who can get stabbed COMPLETELY through the thigh (she has scars on both sides) and then just bandages it up and goes on like nothing happened, climbs a tower and everything, SHOULD be playable.

I also want to see Speed Racer but that probably won't happen because of licensing issues or whatever.

I wouldnt hold my breath for EVA. ADV would have to clear the rights for that in the States, and they need cash, so I doubt Capcom wants to spend what ADV would want. That, and the moon would want that in their version as well, which Bandai would NEVER give up the rights for.

To be honest, I'm not expecting many new animoo characters in the US version of TvC. I'm money's on Dante, Ken Masters, Someone from RE, Bionic Commando and Speed Racer. Dunno, all 5 characters being from Capcom wouldnt shock me.

I would love to see that game. Not only they have Castlevania Judgement: there were a few Konami fighters like Raging Fighter, Yie Air Kung Fu, Rumble Roses, and Kensei: Sacred Fists. Most Konami fighters aren't as good as Capcom Fighters. If this game where to exist I would love to see Konami Man as a playable character.

Anyway, I wonder what minigames Tekkaman Blade as rest of the new characters will have. I am happy they got rid of Hakushon Daimaou, because his minigame makes my head go insane.

What I really want to see though is a Sega fighting game, but not something like Virtua Fighter, more like a Super Smash Bros. mascot fighter type of thing with characters like Beat, Gum, and Ulala... and like, fifty billion Sonic characters I didn't know even existed. Oh wait, now I just remembered why a Sega fighter like that would suck.

I wonder what will his minigame be. My guesses are either a shop cart race or a homerun derby(Similar to Super Smash Bros.)

His attacks are all right but I wasn't a big fan of his super attack that involves the servbot head. That attack IMO is too cheesy.

You're going to have to wait for MvC3 for that, when they can afford to have a huge roster on both sides.

This is how I am with these games too. I mean, in normal Street Fighter games I end up playing a bunch of characters until I find one I like. It usually ends up surprising me... I ended up maining Fei Long a while back. A few years ago I never would have imagined that I would ever main Fei Long.

I'm still not really a "hardcore" fighter game enthusiast or anything though, and when it comes to games like Marvel vs. Capcom, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, etc., those games are more of fanservice to me. Since I play fighting games casually in general, when they come out with games with a bunch of cool Capcom or comic book or anime characters in it, I totally want to just mess around with my favorite characters instead of trying to "master" the game.

Apparently both the Capcom and Tatsunoko producers are hoping to get DLC characters going... Including Arthur from Ghosts & Goblins, Ingrid from Capcom Fighting Evo, Nurse Witch Komugi, and Rollerblade Hero Muteking, as well as previously discussed Phoenix Wright, Franziska von Karma, Samurai Pizza Cats, and Speed Racer.
DLC for a non-music wii game? Do it, capcom. Do it. Kudos for already prepping the game code to accept DLC without any set plans, too.

One thing that pisses me off is that when you complete the game, you only get credit for beating the game with the character that delivered the finishing blow to Yami.

You really should get credit for both characters (and see both endings) but I guess Capcom needed some way to extend the game.
