Tatsunoko vs. Capcom might go online, add new fighters
E3 2009: Crossover fighting game set for winter launch as publisher explores possibility of adding new characters to both sides, non-local multiplayer.
LOS ANGELES--When Marvel vs. Capcom 2 launches on the Xbox 360 and PS3 this summer, it will do so with the addition of online multiplayer action, a glaring omission in previous console ports of the arcade fighter. Another upcoming crossover brawler from the publisher--Tatsunoko vs. Capcom for the Wii--may be in for the same treatment.
Capcom has announced that it is "looking into adding new features to the game, including possible additions of several new characters from both Capcom and Tatsunoko and is exploring the option of online gameplay."
Currently the game has a roster of more than 20 characters pulled from both companies' brands. Capcom is represented by mainstays like Street Fighter's Ryu and Mega Man, while the anime studio Tatsunoko brings Ken from Gatchaman and the cybernetic Casshan.
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Ultimate All-Stars is set for a winter release on the Wii in North America. For more on the title and the rest of Capcom's lineup, read GameSpot's pre-E3 previews--and also check out the ongoing coverage of the Electronic Entertainment Expo.
