by Adam Robinson on

In an effort to not be completely demolished by all the incredible Nintendo news being covered by our own Travis, Cory, and Kevin, Capcom PR just sent me this incredible press release confirming the rumors that the 2D, tag-team fighter **Tatsunoku VS.

Capcom** is on its way to the States. And they said it couldn’t be done!


TATSUNOKO VS. CAPCOM coming to North America!

SAN MATEO, CA — June 2, 2009 — Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced that Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is coming to North America for the Wii™ home video game system. Capcom’s popular and critically acclaimed ‘VS’ fighting series is getting an all new next-generation introduction. Tatsunoko vs. Capcom pits Capcom’s iconic characters against Tatsunoko Productions anime superheroes. This clash of heroes face off in two-on-two battles for the ultimate 2D tag-team battle.

I have no idea what a Tatsunoku is, but I dig on fighters so you can bet I’m excited to see how this plays. I can’t wait for the shoe-horned waggle controls! If any of you crazy kids imported this, write about it on the boards so that I can temper my expectations. Thanks again for the press release, Capcom. Thanks, Capcom. Thapcom.
