Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars

Unless you’re well schooled in anime from the ‘70s, you probably won’t recognize many of the fighters set to appear in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars. Of course, years of gaming have taught us everything we need to know about the Capcom characters in this gigantic crossover fighting game for the Wii. But who the heck is Doronjo or Gold Lightan? We decided to do some investigation with an early build of the game we thought we’d never see in the West - and we’re here to report that Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is shaping up to be quite a formidable fighter for the Wii.

Check out the videos below for a collection of the most over-the-top Hyper Combo finishers from the Tatsunoko and Capcom camps. The award for our favorite Tatsunoko Hyper Combo definitely goes to Yatterman’s Doronjo for working a three-man bicycle into a special attack for the first time in the history of fighting games. Capcom’s Frank West also gets props for blinding his opponent with a giant Servbot before smashing them silly for several billion points of damage.

    I would like to throw this out there to any viewers reading comments! Marvel vs Capcom 2 has 56 characters!!!! So far from what I have gathered Tatsunoko vs. Capcom has 30 characters at the moment!!!! That's a huge gap!!!! 26 more fighters to fight with I hope they have atleast 45 total!
  • Makk_Mizzy - December 13, 2009 2:34 p.m.

    I can't wait for jan 23rd to pick-up my copy because this game is gonna be so sick! The one thing I hate is there won't be my favorite fighter in this one.... WOLVERINE!!!! Also I own Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and that is much better just for the roster and you get to fight with 3 characters!!!!

    i might have to dust off my wii for this, the last game i got was brawl for it
  • reyalejandro13 - December 11, 2009 3:38 a.m.

    Gotta say, from the Capcom camp, I like the non-fighting game characters better so far. E.G, Viewtiful Joe, Frank West, the VS suit. Am so getting this. My only complaint is that I never played Mega Man Legends, so I don't really know or like Megaman Volnutt. I would have preferred to see original Megaman, and a 3-D Version of his Hyper Megaman combo from MVC2.

    A fighting game where I can Tag Team, Frank West and Karas then have them fight a VS suit. I'm sold
  • CatrParrot - December 10, 2009 6:26 a.m.

    @Romination Actually, it uses three attack buttons and a partner button on the nunchuk setup or classic controller.
  • Romination - December 10, 2009 2:57 a.m.

    i'm still cautious....isn't a 2 button wii remote a BIT simple for that style of play?
  • lovinmyps3 - December 10, 2009 12:18 a.m.

    In the words of Chris Farley: That was... AWESOME!!
  • CatrParrot - December 9, 2009 11:43 p.m.

    Could this end up being the best 3rd party Wii exclusive? Most likely.
  • Cyberninja - December 9, 2009 11:10 p.m.

    i love seeing this game and the sadness in the eyes of xbox/sony fanboys who think wii is crap but still want this game like somepeople on this site
  • conchking - December 9, 2009 9:56 p.m.

    Dude he was announced recently of course Henry didn't know
  • NeoKef - December 9, 2009 9:09 p.m.

    As a Megaman X series fanboy, I must say I'm very dissapointed in Henry when he didn't mention Zero on the 28 characters of TVC. Is he a playable character, secret character, boss, DLC, what is he? @erreip199 I didn't know Zero was in this till this video.
  • erreip199 - December 9, 2009 8:03 p.m.

    is it me or theres some hyper combos missing? i didnt see Zeros
