The best part of Capcom's Vs. fighters isn't the character roster, though of course Vs. games tend to have awesome selections. No, it's the ridiculous, super-fast aerial combat. Unfortunately, if you're not directly engaged in said combat (or even if you are), it can be way too frantic and flashy to...

One major issue with marketing Tatsunoko vs. Capcom in North America is that nobody but old-school otaku knows who the hell half of the characters are.

While some of us are hesitant to commit to Tatsunoko vs. Capcom (not because of questions of game quality, but for financial reasons, and concern for the safety of our Wiis), we are quite certain that some of you either totally imported it, or live in Japan and just bought it. And we are jea...

The latest gameplay footage from Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes features a ridiculous-looking bout between a Morrigan/Chun Li team and the enormous Gold Lightan.

For a long time, we mostly saw the Tatsunoko Productions characters in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom as a necessity: there because Vs. fighting games needed to be vs. somebody. Basically, they were there to give the Capcom characters some new people to fight, and it didn't really matter who. But as we've ...

These two clips suffer a bit from their conversion to embeddable Web formats, but that seems inevitable for something so quick and dynamic as Tatsunoko vs. Capcom footage.
