WTF?! RYU vs. Gatchaman!
WOW! Someone was feeling a little left out with the fighting game crossovers! Capcom just dropped news about their latest crossover fight fest. Titled Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes, this game will mash capcom’s universe within the universe of one of Japan’s most famous animation studios. Now, if you’re not familiar with Tatsunoko you may be with some of their characters like SpeedRacer, Gatachamn (aka battle of the planets here in the u.s.), Casshern: Robot hunter and one of their most famous animes Neon Genesis Evangelion. If you want to know alittle more about the studio, you can check’em out here. There isn’t too much info known about this game yet but from what you see in the pics, it looks to bring back capcom’s popular tag battle system they used in previous crossover games (marvel vs. capcom, x-men vs. sf, amrvel vs. capcom 2,etc.). Also it seems they’re going with 3d characters and backgrounds on a 2d plane. I don’t think capcom is ready to embrace a full on 3d fighting game yet ala tekken or soul calibur and quite frankly, i have no problem with it… long live 2d!. Anyways this game will be hiting arcades across Japan this year and although only a couple of characters are shown, knowing capcom you can expect a sh*t load of characters from both worlds to select from. We’ll keep you posted on new videos and info once it comes. In the meantime enjoy the pics below.
