Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes - Preorder

«©NCSX» NCS was hoping for Capcom's Tatsunoko vs Capcom on the PS3 (mainly because we have the Hori RAP3 to use on that console) but we'll have to be content with the Wii version for now. The game is the latest in Capcom's Versus fighting games which pit one group of heroes against another group. Previous games have featured X-Men vs Streetfighter (1996), Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter (1997), Capcom vs SNK: Millennium Fight (2000) and others. Characters from Tatsunoko properties such as Gatchaman and Yattaman battle household names from Capcom including Chun-Li, Morrigan, and Ryu.

Tatsunoko vs Capcom is basically a 2D fighting game but the fighters are rendered in full-bodied 3D. The visual style/design is dubbed 2.5D since it's the halfway point between 2D and 3D.

If the Wii version of the game wasn't shipping this year, NCS would have imported a coin-op kit. The Wii conversion allows us to get the game for under US$100 instead of the considerable expense required for the arcade version. We're guessing the game will use a combination of the Nunchuk and Wii Remote. Preorders are welcome to ship on December 11, 2008 at JPY6990 or US$65.90 from NCS.
