It had been rumored for a while, but now it's confirmed; the ironically named female fighter Yatterman 2, is playable in this month's Tatsunoko Vs Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars. Gamespot got the exclusive on their On the Spot video news show. She looks like a pretty awesome "set-up" character, sort of like Rolento from the Street Fighter Alpha series, but cuter and with more electric, heart shaped projectiles.
Seth Killian had this to tell me himself about the situation- "Yep, we still have a couple of Tatsunoko-flavored aces up our sleeves, including Yatterman 2 (aka Ai-chan). She’s a total beast, with electric hearts flying everywhere and a gigantic, match-ending robot pelican. You heard me: giant robot pelican. Anyway I challenge anyone to play that game for 5 minutes and not crack a smile. It oozes fun."
Note that he says "aces". I wouldn't be surprised if there are more characters and/or secrets in the game. Only a few weeks until we find out ourselves. Still can't wait to see what Frank West's ending and mini-game will be like...
Stay tuned this week for more news straight from Seth about other Capcom games, such as Mega Man 10, Dark Void and Dark Void Zero.
