This weekend, we ran a rumor that Tatsunoko vs. Capcom (the game that we all knew was coming to the US) might actually come to the US. Today, Capcom has confirmed via its Twitter account that the gossip has been made flesh, with the announcement due to be made at E3.
Capcom has stated that the "cat is out of the bag," confirming the Nintendo Power scan that has been floating around online and stating that TvC was Capcom's Mystery Game #1. Not so much a mystery now, but I think it would be nice for everyone at E3 to pretend it's a brand-new announcement when they mention it. I think Capcom deserves a little patronization after all the good it's done for us.
Capcom Unity hasn't shut up about TvC for weeks, so the announcement has always been a case of "when" and not "if." Now fans can beat themselves off into a frothy frenzy in rampant celebration of the news. Hopefully you'll be able to indulge in your anime-flavored violence this year, although we'll have to wait and see what the official release date is.
