Meet the cast of Tatsunoko vs Capcom

But when the average gaming consumer sees the box on the shelf, they may be dumbfounded in puzzlement. With that in mind, let’s address the biggest issue in localizing Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars: it's full of insanely obscure characters. Not only are nearly all the Tatsunoko characters unknown to all but the most devoted, long-time anime fans, but Capcom also threw in some of its own creations who haven’t been seen in years. So to relieve you of your confusion, we present the following bios on all the characters of Tatsunoko vs Capcom. With our help, and a nod to YouTube, you'll be confused no more.

Unless stated otherwise, all the videos are the openings to the first series that the characters appeared in. And yes, we have posted thisonce before, but it’s now updated and contains all the fighters from the game. Think of it as the paperback edition.
