    The game, Tatsunoko vs Capcom, is a 2 vs 2 fighting game crossover between the classic anime characters of Tatsunoko such as Ken the Eagle of Gatchaman (G-Force) and the characters of Capcom such as Ryu of Street Fighter. The gameplay is similar to the Marvel vs Capcom series. This game is coming for the arcade and also coming for the Wii in December 11 in Japan.

    Here's the current character roster from both sides:

    Ken the Eagle (Gatchaman)
    Casshern (Neo-human Casshern)
    Tekkaman ( Tekkaman: The Space Knight)
    Yatterman 1 (Yatterman)
    Hurricane Polymar (Hurricane Polymar)
    Gold Lightan* (Golden Warrior Gold Lightan)
    Doronjo (Yatterman)
    Karas (Karas)
    Hakushon Daimao (Hakushon Daimao)
    Jun the Swan (Gatchaman)
    Ippatsuman (Gyakuten! Ippatsuman)

    Ryu (Street Fighter)
    Chun-Li (Street Fighter II)
    Batsu Ichimonji (Rival Schools)
    Alex (Street Fighter III)
    Morrigan (Darkstalkers)
    Soki (Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams)
    MegaMan/Rock Volnutt (Mega Man Legends)
    PTX-40A* (Lost Planet)
    Roll (Mega Man)
    Saki (Quiz Nariro Dreams)
    Viewtiful Joe (Viewtiful Joe)
    Yami (Okami) The final boss

    *Note: Gold Lightan and PTX-40A cannot team up with another character.

    Here's the JAMMA show trailer of this game:

    Here's the video of Ryu/Chun-Li vs Ken the Eagle/Casshern:

    As a Marvel vs Capcom fan and 2D fighting game fan, I am looking forward to this game. I hope there is a release to America. Anyway, let's discuss this game here.

    It's awesome looking, I'm thinking about importing it. (Homebrew ftw) The likelihood of it being released outside of Japan is unlikely since none of these anime series have made their way outside of Japan.

    Words cannot express the levels of want I have for this game.

    Gatchaman! of all things. Now that's incredibly hot.

    From what I've heard Capcom is working on bringing it to the U.S. God I hope they do.

    Due to licensing would be the only reason to not bring it here as with Shounen jump super stars.
    The less anime characters here the better.

    As most people, Im looking forward Gatchaman characters to play this game

    The only difference is that there's only a few Tatsunoko characters in this game that have any specific skewed licenses in the States on the level of what Jump Superstars had. Meaning, the only trouble we'd probably have is probably...Gatchaman, Casshern, Bob the Genie, and Karas.

    I think they may have only rights to air the shows. They didn't exactly dub or make them.

    You must mean G-force Guardians of Space, it adaption was done by turner.It has originally air on TBS in the 80's but only a few episodes air. The rest air on cartoon network in 1995.

    Interesting that they created a cross over with 70's animes.

    In case anybody forgets, check out the new TvC arcade stick done by Exar that will be yet to be released:


    The control setup is supposed to be 3 attack buttons (light, medium, and strong) and a partner button.

    I find Namco x capcom boring for being turned based.

    I hope this is released in Europe. And i STILL think that every game should be released worldwide.

    This game looks interesting, considering the fact that I love crossover fighting games. I'm a bit disappionted that it isn't going to be released outside of Japan.
  20. This may just be my first import title...Maybe.

    I had gotten interested in it since Viewtiful Joe was announced. The world needz moar Clover. D8 Too bad they died.
