From covering wars to waging them

Looks like that leaked list of new Tatsunoko vs. Capcom characters is spot-on in at least one regard, as Capcom has revealed at the Tokyo Game Show that Frank West has been added to the Western and Japanese rerelease of the fighter.

West made his first appearance in Capcom's Xbox 360 game Dead Rising, which later received a bland Wii port. His fighting moves seem to incorporate weapons used in Dead Rising and, uh, Mega Man's mega buster. Odd.

We'll just have to wait to see if Mega Man Zero, Yatterman #2 and Joe Asakura (Gatchaman) have made the cut as previously rumored. In the meantime, check out West's new trailer.
