Capcom Cordially Invites You To Decide The Next Versus Title

Posted by Damien McFerran

Company blog wants you to submit your dream crossover idea

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is just around the corner for Western fighting fans but Capcom is already thinking about future instalments in its insanely popular "Versus" series.

Posting on the Capcom Unity blog, team member Snow has asked fans to submit their own ideas for the next crossover title.

Here are his words, repeated for your pleasure:

Capcom has a history of great "vs" games. Not least of which is of our newly re-released Marvel vs Capcom 2, and the upcoming Tatsunoko vs Capcom. But we're all about listening to your ideas here at Unity... So, what would you like to see as a Capcom vs title?

Post your idea in the comments, whether funny, serious, or both.

We'll pick our favorite and send you precisely 12% of the swag in Seth's "random Capcom swag" box.

That last sentence points to this being more of a bit of light-hearted fun rather than a serious appeal for fans to influence Capcom's future output, but hey, it could still result in some cool ideas.

Capcom vs. The Teletubbies, anyone?

I Say Capcom vs System characters.
So for the Wii: Capcom vs Nintendo characters like Mario, Bowser, Link
For the X-Box 360: Capcom vs Microsoft characters like Halo
For the PS3: Capcom vs Sony characters like Kratos

That or Capcom vs Independent publishers
So like Sega, Konami, and Square-Enix

Capcom vs. Pokémon!

Seriously, if Pokémon can be adapted for Smash Bros., what's to keep them from being adapted to a traditional fighting game?

My last post was too serious, I need to inject myself with humour:
Capcom Vs Transformers
The concept:
Ryu Shoryukens Sagat, right in his eyepatch. Megatron rebuilds him as a Decepticon .... "More Than Meets The Eye".
Oh ,dear!!!

@Reala: ah, ya beat me!

A proper Capcom vs. Namco would be nice though. Hell, even something as simple as a "Darkstalkers vs. Soul Calibur". ...Or how about just a Darkstalkers game, Capcom?

@Malouff: ... Microsoft characters like Halo
fail.

I'm loving some of these ideas. i'd give them my left leg for Capcom vs. Namco (Nightmare + Lloyd vs. Megaman + Veiwtiful Joe, anyone?), Capcom Vs. Square Enix (Dissidia is pretty dang cool), or Capcom vs. Shonen Jump (Ryu on Vegeta one-on-one... and i jizzed in my pants.)

BlueFlameBat said:

Definitely CAPCOM vs Nintendo (or Nintendo vs CAPCOM). I wanna have characters like Mario, Samus, and Link pull their special moves off Street Fighter-style. Knocking your opponents off the screen is fun, but sometimes you just need a good old fashioned slug fest. Well, I better get started with signing up with CAPCOM.

Konami vs Capcom. Konami seems very willing to do crossovers and parodies plus they've got a huge list of recognizable videogame characters. Bill Rizer (ultimate finisher move: up up down down left right left right B A) vs Super Joe? Simon Belmont vs Dante? Mega Man vs Moai head? Hell yeah!

Yet almost all the Transformers would be giant robots which makes Apocalypse and Onslaught look tiny.

Transformers vs Gundam?

Vs sega would be bliss, as long as they'd include some of the more obscure characters, and not add loads of sonic guys. Im talking gilius thunderhead, alex kidd, opa opa, joe shinobi, Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding, Shenmue, Billy Hatcher, Wonder Boy (OH PLEASE bring back wonder boy sega!), Toejam and earl.

Theres no other companies that jump to mind that i'd like to see more, but i will request that whatever it is, its available on wii in SOME shape or form :(

Capcom VS Nintendo is an absolute must, Nintendo did a great job with Smash Bros. however the Capcom VS series is a different style altogether.
Starfox, Metroid, Zelda and other traditional Nintendo characters would be more than enough characters to put against the collection of Capcom characters...

as a bonus feature they could have a 8 bit battle mode with 8bit Mario vs. Megaman etc. :)

Capcom VS Hollywood (famous movie characters of our time: Karate Kid, Rocky Balboa, Rambo, Terminator, Robocop, Braveheart, King Kong etc)

Capcom VS P.O.Y.C.B (Part of your complete breakfast)(tucan sam, captain crunch, coo coo bird, tony the tiger, lucky charms, rice crispy trio, honey smacks frog, etc)

but it wouldnt be called nintendo vs capcom.. call it, Smash Bros vs Capcom reason being, street fighter is played on a Nintendo, so would be a bit confusing..

Capcom vs Commedians (Robin Williams, Sienfield, Simpsons)
how bout Capcom vs The Simpsons

Capcom vs Mortal Combat
Capcom vs Mii

I love the LucasArts idea! Nintendo could be super awesome too, especially if they did include that 8-bit mode suggested by Raptor78. Vs. Namco would make sense, since they have more than one fighting game series to begin with, and can flesh out the roster with Pac-Man (hey, Capcom's roster is weird already, at least in Marvel vs. Capcom 2), The Prince (can't really see him, though...just his Katamari), somebody from the Tales series...they've got options. :)

there`s already a namco vs capcom game out there, but it`s an rpg for the ps2.
although a fight game between the two would be cool to see.
also capcom could also go against production I.G or madhouse anime studios.

Seriously, if Pokémon can be adapted for Smash Bros., what's to keep them from being adapted to a traditional fighting game?"

I always enjoyed the idea of a fighting game involving Pokémon like Magmar and Hitmonchan and Lucario. ^^

Lucario would go great alongside Street Fighter's cast in my opinion.

I honestly don't think I wanna see a Pokémon vs. Capcom though. If Nintendo vs. Capcom were made, I'd enjoy seeing Lucario used instead of Pikachu as the Pokémon, though.

Or maybe even a "Pokémon Trainer" that sends out fighting types?

i second the Capcom VS Nintendo suggestion. A real nintendo fighter, capcom style. Not super smash series.

how about capcom vs annoying historical figures who have been a right pain in the ass

eg, you smash up newton, the man responsible for derivative and calculus

Smash up shakepsear... everyone has suffered at the hands of the play julius ceasar.

Or how about vs ghandi... the guy believed in non violence... you could just practice your combos on him.

And the boss of the game would be Jesus. But despite supposedly having gnarly powers, he would probably just stand there and take it as well.

Capcom VS Dark Horse would be an interesting comic book vs capcom series. Dark Horse does all the wonderfull Hellboy comics and Aliens vs Predator etc. It would be just like marvel but much darker. :)

!!!!!! I just had an epiphany.. !!!!!!
We are all thinking inside the box!
Please read on if you want to hear my amazing idea.
Capcom vs The World
Please hear me out. It ships with capcom's vast cast. but the opponent is who YOU make it to be. You design a character, similarly to a mii or any avatar and name it. Then you create the moves by inputting them using the wii mote/motion plus. so, for a punch low, you actually swing your arm and it records your movements and saves it to that punch. the avatar creator will be very robust and will allow you to make anything from a popeye to an optimus prime, the more time you put into it, the more detail you can get. you can also fight the world with this character via online battle. and you cna try to become the world champion.

you can opt for basic streetfighter moves like forward, down, foward to throw something... or, you can make up your own input. and the fighting takes place with the 4 wii motes.. 2 strapped around the ankles and 2 in your hands.. obviously there would be other control options but this would be the ultimate figher ever..

any comments?

I want to see capcom Vs Nintendo.

One on The Wii and the other on Nintendo Ds. Fighting style: Super smash bros Melee style.

Characters like Ryu, ken, Megaman X, Zero (From X series), Donte, Virgil, and other capcom favorites Verses Nintendos batch of characters.

The Ds could have Geo Stellar Megaman with the "Black Ace Black end galaxy Final smash", Solo "Rogue", Pheonix Wright, and some other Capcom characters Vs Some of Nintendo Characters. Mainly who were on the DS like the Ouendan guys & others

Problem about that Mushroomer is copy right issues.

A pretty awsome DS fighter like smash bros consisting of Shonen jump characters Name Shonen jump ultamate stars was never released to Amerca due to copy right issues. I don't think a capcom verses the world'll happen due to copy right issues.Master cheif won't appear on tendo, hes to valueble to microsoft. Kratos of God of war won't appear on tendo, to vaueble to sony. Mario, Link, or samus won't apear on either. Nintendo won't let that happen. Mugen is the only place for capcom Vs the world. But you DL it on the computer

i thought capcom were buddies with nintendo. it seems to be more like a, shake your hand while stabing you in the back kind of relationship.
