The obscure Street Fighter game guide


Call us crazy, but we’re more excited about Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes than Street Fighter IV. Even though we’re still eager to get our hands on Street Fighter IV, it’s been far too long since we created a tag team with two characters in a bona fide Street Fighter ‘versus’ title. On top of that, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom looks gorgeous with lots of bright eye candy, fluid animations, and over-the-top super moves.

Above: Are you familiar with anime characters like Duronjo from Yatterman? Does it really matter? Just look at how cool TvC looks! 

Above: Lost Planet’s PTX-40A can’t be teamed up with another character. Making the mech count as two characters is an interesting way to balance gameplay

Two words: licensing issues. That’s why Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes is currently only available in Japanese arcades. A Japanese Wii version is scheduled to release on December 11, 2008. However, according to Capcom, there are no concrete plans to bring Tatsunoko vs. Capcom to the US or UK.

Luckily, in a post on, Capcom’s Sr. Community Manager, Seth Killian expressed interest in bringing the game to the West. “I will make sure Capcom knows this game would have a warm reception in the West should we be able to defeat that evil-est of Robot Masters: Legal Licensing Issue Man,” said Killian. So if you’re a member of the majority who hasn’t had a chance to play the arcade version and don’t plan on purchasing the Japanese Wii version, it seems that there’s still a sliver of hope.

    And as a stand-alone PSone game. God, I loved Pocket Fighter. Also, these licensing issues suck, I really wanna play TvC!

    I loved Pocket Fighter (aka Super Gem Fighter Mini-Mix). It was a great game. But Pocket Fighter made its way to US arcades and was available on the Street Fighter Alpha Anthology on PS2.

    No pocket fighter? Or is that game more well known than I think?
