First attack! New Tatsunoko vs. Capcom vids, feat. Morrigan

Besides Arc System’s Guilty Gear XX Accent Core (which is already two years old) and a spate of Naruto-licensed games, the 2D fighter Renaissance seems to have curiously skipped over the Wii. The exception to the rule, of course, is Capcom’s Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars.

As the company moves to corner Wii owner’s need for fighters (and no one else’s), it’s trying it’s best to keep a steady drip of info coming out for the title. To that end, they released two new gameplay videos today featuring Capcom’s Morrigan (from Darkstalkers) and Saki (from Quiz Nanairo Dreams) facing off against Tatsunoko’s Doronjo and Yatterman-1 (from Yatterman). The videos are after the jump, and you can see some character models in the gallery.

Since I’m a filthy Westerner, I only recognize one of those characters. Whoops.

What I do recognize, however, are beatiful 2D sprites 3D models and frantic gameplay that I will never have the eye-hand coordination to fully understand. I also recognize that (spoiler alert) the Capcom team gets the hell kicked out of it in both videos.

In any case, Jonathan’s review was pretty positive, so if you haven’t imported Tatsunoko vs. Capcom yet, you can look forward to its Winter 2009 U.S. release, preferably with this arcade stick.
