Good news/Bad news: Tatsunoko Vs Capcom NYC event update

3:00 AM on 01.17.2010 // Jonathan Holmes

How about the bad news first? I was wrong and community member The Average Guy was right; Capcom and Nintendo wont be selling Tatsunoko Vs Capcom at the launch party on Jan 23rd at the Nintendo World Store in NYC. I guess that makes it more of a pre-launch party. How nervy.

The good news is, Capcom will be giving plenty of copies of the game away for free, so you can still try to get it early. The difference is, you'll need luck, not money, to make that happen. That's even better, right? You can try to get the game for free, but keep your pre-order in place just in case, and you've got nothing to lose. Personally, I'm just as excited for the event as ever. Then again, I'm hopefully going to have a review copy of the game in my hands before the 23rd anyway.

OK, enough passive aggressive smug-guy gaming journalist bragging, hit the jump for the latest press release for the event.

On Saturday, Jan. 23, the Big Apple will experience a big brawl, when the Tatsunoko VS. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars launch event takes over the Nintendo World store!
