Depending on sales, a new Capcom Vs. might be possible

If there's one thing fighting fans love to do, it's telling Capcom how to run their business. Personally, I think R. Mika should make a Super Street Fighter IV comeback, but that's neither here nor there.

What is both here and there, though, is this quotation from Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars producer Ryota Niitsuma: "If sales are really good, then you can see an announcement [for another game] within this year," he told Kotaku this morning.

But an announcement for what?

"I would love to do more Versus series, more types of games like Marvel Vs. Capcom 2," Niitsuma continued. "There are all of these possibilities working with other companies, seeing what we could do with them. There are so many game companies I'd love to work with."

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, which will be released in North America next week, is the seventh game in the Vs. series. Niitsuma calls it a "revival" of the series; besides the recently re-made Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for Xbox Live Arcade, the last Vs. game was Capcom vs. SNK 2, which appeared in arcades in 2001. While this doesn't count as an official announcement, I doubt Capcom would be too happy with Niitsuma running his mouth off if another Vs. title weren't plausible.

Cross-over games tend to be heavy on the fanservice, and it's no surprise that Capcom would take fan requests into account. "We get requests from fans to mix our characters with other video game characters all of the time," Niitsuma said. "Based on those requests we might be able to do something with our characters and another company's characters for a future game," Niitsuma said.

So! Since I know all of you with Wiis are going to buy Tatsunoko vs. Capcom next week, it wouldn't be out of the question to hear about a Vs. game later this year, right? Right. Capcom seems to be listening, so let's hear which company Capcom should work with next.

My vote is for Studio Ghibli: a Jill and Nausicaa team would be awfully cool.
