Joe the Condor Zeroes in on Tatsunoko vs Capcom

Posted by James Newton

Character roster updated!

We've had Frank West and Tekkaman Blade join the melee, and now Capcom has continued their accursed teasing by revealing another two characters joining the Western release of ├╝ber-fighter-mash-up Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars: Mega Man Zero and Joe the Condor!

Most gamers will be familiar with Zero, having played him in umpteen spin-offs since his first appearance all the way back in 1993's Mega Man X, and Joe the Condor is better known in the West as Jason from Battle of the Planets. From the first footage of their fighting styles, Zero appears to be a nippy close-up brawler with some amazing aerial combos, whereas Joe boasts some powerful strikes and a frankly senses-shattering Super Combo.

Head over to the Capcom Unity blog below to check out the first footage of these new characters in action, and stay tuned as we prepare to bring you all the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom content right up until its launch in early 2010.

Actually, there's 26 characters total as the ESRB reveals. There's still one character left to announce.

"This is an acrade-style fighting game in which players can select from among 26 characters based on Tatsunoko anime and Capcom video games"

All the characters were actually already known before Capcom even revealed any of them, because they accidentally left their names in the official site's source code. The last new character is Yatterman 2.

I always have to wonder if the leak was "accidental". In the past companies have done it on purpose or even put fake names in there; all to rally speculation for the games.

In a way I'm pleased Zero is the Mega Man X version rather than the Mega Man Zero version.



Objection said:

Yatterman...I have no idea who or what that is but it sounds like an unexciting last character.

Now that I've seen Zero in action, slicing up the competition with his Z-Saber, this game is a must-buy for me when I get the chance. I'm also very pleased that Capcom went with his most-familiar X Series look, as well. This game is looking frikken sweet.

This is awesome. My hype for the game just went up. Wish it was released this Christmas, but then again, we gotta be patience.
