Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars Preview

Frank West and Tekkaman Blade join the fray as the release date gets set.

Tatsunoko vs Capcom was originally exclusive to Japan when it came out for Wii last year. After lots of fan support, Capcom has decided to bring the fighting game to North America and Europe with Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars.

The main changes to this new, updated version are online play and a few new characters, including the recently announced Frank West from Capcom's Dead Rising and Tekkaman Blade from the Tatsunoko side.

 

The game features tag teams of two going head-to-head, and is decidedly more over-the-top than usual Capcom fighting games. It has a light-hearted visual style and each character has extravagant combos.

Featuring a four-button fighting system, Tatsunoko vs Capcom could be construed as simple, but in that simplicity is depth with easy-to-pull-off Aerial Raves, Variable Assists, Hyper Combos, and more.

Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars is scheduled to come out in North America on January 26, 2010 with releases in Japan and Europe shortly after.

In total, there are more than 20 characters to choose from. Below is a list of the confirmed playable characters:

Tekkaman

Yatterman No. 1

Polimar

Gold Lightan

Now I actually got to play this game a couple times. I enjoyed it. Although, playing it in Japanese was pretty difficult. The controls were decent and easy to understand and Viewtiful Joe, Megaman, Ryu, Karas,and Gachamen (sp?) all in the same game >.< lol excited! If this was facebook, I would definitely 'like' this article ahaha!
