Europe PAL Version

Crossover chaos at its very finest

When Capcom’s Versus series burst into arcades in 1996 it was a refreshing change of pace after the seemingly endless stream of copycat brawlers and tired sequels. X-Men vs. Street Fighter also marked a significant new attitude for the veteran...

Wasted opportunity or forward-thinking?

With the impending arrival of Nintendo's next home console, could we expect to see a lower number of sequels turning up on the Wii and see them launching on the Wii's successor instead? Perhaps.

One VS game only, please

It's a pretty one-sided fight, but even so Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is by far the Wii's greatest fighting game. The main hope for competition came from Capcom's upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom 3, which regrettably is not heading to Wii. Why? Let Capcom's Christian Svensson explain all. Why isn't MvC3 coming to the Wii? Svensson: The...

I'm glad they put Alex in, Street Fighter III characters almost never make the cut.

@Badknux yeah I know what you mean, too bad they didn't put of my favorite character from SF III, Sean. He is a fun character to use.

Getting closer to the release date, can't wait!

This is the first fighting game in years that i may actually buy. the concept of Frank West vs Cassern (for no real reason) is really appealing to me.

I'd like to see a sequel announced at the end of the year. I'd want it to have the remaining characters from Tatsunoko Fight that aren't in already - http://www.fightersgeneration.com/games/tatsunokofight.html - I don't recognise the names but because they're in Tatsunoko Fight, I think they deserve to be in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. For the Capcom side, I would like a villian, end-boss or rival character for many of the heroes. Sagat for SF1, Bison for SF2, Gill for SF3, Raizo for Rival Schools, Bass for Mega Man (Classic), Tron Bonne for Mega Man Legends, Vile for Megaman X and Jedah for Darkstalkers. Bring in three characters from other games; say, M. Haggar (Final Fight series), Strider-Hiryu (Strider) and Charlie Nash (Street Fighter Alpha series) since the game lacks a Zangeif or Guile type character.

I got my preorder awhile back. My only complaint is the new soundtrack (they could have at least saved a few of the character themes...). And hey! Almost got the complete original main Yatterman cast (only missing the main antagonist, Dokurobei, God Of Theives). Looking forward to seeing how well it does stateside!

@TwilighV I hope it does decent as it seems that Capcom has put a lot of effort into it. I am just glad they are bringing here. I will be swing by BestBuy on way home and picking this one up on Tuesday.

Bought the game 2 days ago, and it's awesome.
The only problem is that I hate Manga and Anime to death, and it looks like Capcom tried to bash in as much Anime as possible too.
I mean, Megaman Vollnut?
What were they thinking?
