In a recent interview with Ryota Niitsuma, the producer of Tatsunoko Vs Capcom, I learned that Phoenix Wright (Ace Attorney) and Ingrid (Capcom Fighting Evolution) still may weasel their way into Tatsunoko Vs Capcom. According to Niitsuma-san, it will be in part up to Nintendo if these character are made available via DLC.
Since the advent of the Wii’s “SD Card memory solution”, a few developers have gone forward and applied DLC for Wii games, with Guitar Hero being a major stand-out. I wasn’t aware that Nintendo needed to give their blessing before this was made possible. I wonder how often they’ve already blocked DLC from being released?
Nintendo, if you want to do something about your image with hardcore gamers, let Capcom do whatever they want with Tatsunoko Vs Capcom. It’s one of the few games to come out for the Wii that actually has some strictly PS3/360 fans wanting your console. Considering how much a lot of those people hate (not dislike, but hate) the Wii, that’s saying a lot.
Stick around for the full interview, which should be posted later today.
