Wii

Today saw the release in Japan of Tatsunoko vs Capcom for the Wii. A strange but certainly awesome mix of the best Capcom fighters pitted against the characters created by the mythical studio Tatsunoko. And as usual our friend DjMizuhara is the one sending us videos.
Update 2: All videos are up.

Yeah, I'm sure this is great for the Japanese fans, but I don't recognise any of the characters in this. Bring on another Marvel game.

I'm going to have to steal this game basically and play it on my roommates modded WII

I don't care if it's not Marvel really, although that lessens the chances of it coming here. The game still looks awesome

If you watch anime at all Casshern, Karas, and the characters of the old 80's show where their attire is birdlike should be familiar as well (80's show in America)
I'm surprised they didn't include Speed Racer

Battle of the Planets! Awesome!

This looks cool; just the kind of game the wii needs to help move it beyond the casual gaming arena (which is why I don't have one, I'd rather buy a VTech) |oD

I was hardly interested in the game, but after these vids I'm pretty impressed. Long battles and a great cast of Capcom characters (I don't know the Tatsunoko characters).

I would buy this only for Karas and Soki (big fan of Karas).
I dont understand why its not on PS3 as well, I would have bought it as soon as possible.

PS. I love the exagerations that these japanese devs put in their games for their power ups for the characters!

Yeah I could not believe it was the characters from Battle of the Planets (or Gachaman to purist geeks) which was a total blast from the long forgotten past. It really is a tragedy that this won't come out in Europe due to licensing complications...

The Wii is region free if you hack it with homebrew, which is not that difficult


Also, more info here:

The only bummer I can see from these videos, is it isn't 3 man teams anymore, and they haven't been evident that there are dual specials yet. Even though you can save up til the 5th level so you would assume you could.

You don't have to hack or even modify the system though. It can simply launch the homebrew channel from an SD card. It's a really great thing, especially for us Europeans who normally have to wait months for Nintendo to bother to release their games here.

It's really unfortunate Capcom chose to put this on the Wii. Had it been on the PS3 where all games are region free, or the 360 where most (including almost all Capcom) games are region free we could have imported.

As it is we can only watch the movies and play the game the next time we visit Tokyo.

Same here, but I am not gonna go and buy a Wii and then import it.
I hope the japanese devs wakes up and make some PS3 action hack and slash games like they did on PS2, and there was ALOT of titles that never came out of Japan.

I seriously hope there is a Karas game coming out on PS3, even if it doesnt come out on the west, thats the only game I will force myself to import it.

Anyways, its sad this isnt coming out on PS3 because it looks badass...as Karas.

Well you can just plug in a GC or a a regular shaped Wii controller.


Karas combos

Everytime I see a great Karas footage with great combos that ends with a power move, my body shivers of awesomeness.
