Tatsunoko vs Capcom JapaneseCapcom’s latest Wii game announcement for North America is the much hyped fighter mash-up Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. Nintendo Power got the scoop on the game and the news has spread like wildfire across the internet. While there were whispers of a possible release overseas, it was considered unlikely due to the obscurity of the Tatsunoko side of the game.

Tatsunoko is an animation company known for making TV series, and is part of Takara Tomy. Some of it’s more recognizable series are Speed Racer, Samurai Pizza Cats, Neon Genesis Evangelion (a collaboration with Gainax), Robotech, Video Girl Ai and Gatchaman. Unfortunately, only a few of the characters from the Tatsunoko side of the game will be familiar faces, as many Tatsunoko series haven’t been introduced to America.

Even more exciting is the possible rumor that Wi-Fi multiplayer could be added in for the North American release. Kotaku mentions that the Nintendo Power article includes mentions Capcom is looking into Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection support.

The article also mentions that the character roster from the Japanese version of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom may differ from the North American release. I’m sure we’ll know more once E3 2009 begins.

Personally, I’m feeling a bit psychic. Back when Gamertell discussed Capcom’s news that it was working on nine Wii games, I guessed Tatsunoko vs. Capcom could be among them.
