Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars Update - New Character Reveal Yatterman 2

We check out one more addition to the upcoming Wii fighter, Yatterman's main squeeze.

58 Comments

With Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars almost out, Capcom recently stopped by to show us a final addition to the roster: Yatterman 2. For those who never followed the popular Tatsunoko Productions anime back in the '70s or its 2008 update, this may sound like some kind of lame palette swap roster addition, but it's actually not. Yatterman 2 is actually Ai-chan, Yatterman's special lady, and she comes packing a unique move set. We had a chance to see the perky, baton-wielding addition to the roster and are pleased by what she brings to the party.

Yatterman 2 is the final unlockable character in the game. The specifics of how you unlock her are being kept under wraps, but we don't expect it's going to be too complicated. Yatterman's better half comes rocking a matching outfit to her man, with some strategically placed hearts, an energized baton, and an enormous robotic pelican. Yatterman 2's moves are unique and, based on our play time, brutally effective for combos. She can spin her baton into a shield to block attacks, dash at an enemy and segue into one of three attacks, or fire off a series of quick strikes with her baton a la Chun-Li's lighting kicks. However, one of the most useful and sneakiest moves is her energy burst, which comes from her baton. When triggered, Yatterman 2 will toss out a heart-shaped energy burst that she'll bat at her opponent with her baton. The sneaky bit to the attack is that the bursts bounce off surfaces in the level for a bit so it's possible for an enemy to dodge your initial burst but get hit by the rebound.

Yatterman 2's hyper and ultra combos feature the same quirky but powerful characteristics as her regular moves. The super passion attack is a souped-up version of her energy burst that you can charge to ridiculous proportions, that is, practically half the screen. The massive electrical heart is pretty tough to dodge because it also bounces off surfaces for a bit. Omotchama's Roll calls Yatterman 2's robot helper into the fray to trip up opponents up to three times. Finally, Yatterman 2's ultra combo summons the Yatter Pelican, a massive pelican-shaped mech, that shoots a series of mini penguins (which are naturally explosive) at an opponent. This Pelecanus robotus-centric attack ends with a mighty slam from the mech. While the attacks may look a little laughable, the damage they deal out is all business, especially when mixed into a combo.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars is slated to ship later this month for the Wii, alongside some much needed arcade stick peripherals for the platform.

I was glad to read that this game will have online play in the states...not because I particularly care for it, but because I know a lot of gamers do like online fighting for some reason and I also know the gaming media would drastically mark the game down if it doesn't have the feature. I would like this game to get as much positive support as possible, and if online multiplayer is the key to that, so be it. It's on my list of must-buy games but it's unlikely I'll ever play it online.

Damn... Every time I see this game it looks more awesome. Waaaaaa! I want a Wii. Hey, what if Capcom brought Power Stone 2 (Dreamcast), Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike to the Wii? Then, add online. That'd rock! I'd snag'em so damn fast!

@TouoT: Nope sorry. Capcom already stated that this was and is going to be Wii exclusive. They said they feel the 360 and PS3 have enough fighting games. So they wanted to give the Wii some love.

@TouoT - @regix416 basic - It's not going to come on the PS3 and 360 because they would have to start over from scratch and it's already been confirmed a Wii Exclusive.Though we all might get the sequel.

I have a feeling it might come to the PS3 and 360, but maybe not any time soon. Hopefully it will open another series line like MvC did. Or if this does well, maybe we'll get the other games in the series.

Play the Japanese version & it was awesome. If they make Konami Vs. Capcom, Snake will be ready to fight.

Shouldn't Speed Racer be in this game? He was Tatsunoko's first color series, and in the original one, he did a ton of hand-to-hand fighting.

The only thing I know about Tatsunoko is that it created Speed Racer and Samurai Pizza Cats, but I'm still getting this game as it looks amazing and I had very fond memories about my last Vs Capcom game..Marvel Vs Capcom 1.

I've had the japanese version for a while (before it was confirmed it would come to US). Great game. Prepare yourself for some insane air juggles. Luckly they took a cue from guilty gear series which ability to cancel out a juggle, less damage once a juggle hits a certain point in the air, and little features to help turn the tide of battle back to your side. Gonna be nice American version

I've played the import version ... the game was already solid, cool, fast-paced action and hell lot of fun ... with more characters like this (with unique mini games for each char) ... this will become the game of the month .... consider one miliion sold .... if this is succeed ... publishers will see that wii have potentials, and they will release more -fighting- games to wii .... sigh ...
