If you have waited up until now to grab a copy of Tatsunoko Vs Capcom: Ultimate All Stars, the Capcom Wii fighting game starring Tatsunoko Productions characters like Ken the Eagle, Cashan, Hurrican Polimar and Capcom’s favorites like Ryu, Megaman and many more, you better hurry up: Capcom won’t send new shipments to stores.
Tatsunoko VS Capcom can be considered as a spin-off of the Vs series since it was the only game not featuring Marvel characters like the other entries at that time, not counting the Capcom Vs Snk games. The game was released on December 2008 and it marked the resurgence of the VS series which seemed to be dead after Capcom lost the Marvel characters rights: the choice on Tatsunoko Production was made for its popularity in both Japan and in West, even though a release overseas seeemed unlikely at the time of the japanese release due to the rights of the Tatsunoko characters.
Gameplay wise it’s the standard VS gameplay style: players choose 2 characters each that can be freely swapped during the fight, can perform assist attacks when inactive and unleash powerful combination attacks. The Capcom lineup in the game was also very diverse: except for Ryu and Chun-Li, all the other characters never appeared in a crossover fighting game before.
It happened in the past and it’s happening again: the reason why Capcom won’t send new shipments is because the deal with Tatsunoko Production expired so Capcom don’t have the rights of half the playable cast. The game was already quite hard to find new so if you find a copy in a store, grab it as soon as you can!
