Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom opening video: bittersweet, but mostly SWEET

Yes, that’s Batsu from Rival Schools at 40 seconds in. I know, I’m jealous too. Due out in Japan this Thursday, Capcom has unveiled the above opening movie for its much-awaited Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom, AKA: the game that liberated me from having to give a sh*t about Street Fighter IV. Take a good look, because sadly, it’s the only way many of us will ever see it. Damn shame.

Every moment of this thing strikes the same sweet chord as when Capcom’s fighting all-stars took on SNK or Marvel, and that opens a mixed bag of feelings. As much as I’d love to see Ken and Ryu from Street Fighter take on Ken and Ryu from Gatchaman, there are just too many copyright tangles for this one to ever make its way to our shores without the sneaky import song-and-dance. But hey, we can still enjoy the video, right? Sure we can.
