To catch everyone up on their anime history real quick, Tatsunoko Productions is the historical anime studio that's brought us classic titles Speed Racer, Macross, Gatchaman, and Samurai Pizza Cats. Production I.G. and Studio Pierrot both grew out of Tatsunoko; you might even say they're the MTM of the anime industry. Alright, that's a bit much of a claim.

Anyways, back at the end of May, Jonathan Holmes brought us a tasty little Famitsu scan showing off the first images of the game. Much like Marvel vs. Capcom, this new title is a tag-team fighter that'll be using the Street Fighter IV style of animation. For anyone who's been a fan of anime, these titles are dear childhood memories, and so this game's got a bit of excitement behind it. Here's the roster of who's confirmed for Bra-- sorry, force of habit. 

Tatsunoko characters:

  • Ken (Gatchaman)
  • Casshern (Casshern)
  • Tekkaman (Tekkaman)
  • Yatterman One (Yatterman)
  • Polymar (Hurricane Polymar)
  • Gold Lightan (Gold Lightan) [Note: He can only be played solo, and has one life bar instead of two.]
Capcom Characters:
  • Ryu
  • Chun-Li
  • Alex (Street Fighter 3)
  • Morrigan (Darkstalkers)
  • Batsu (Rival Schools)
  • Soki (Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams)
I'm sure later issues of Famitsu will leak out bits of information of who else is going to be in it. I doubt they'll follow Nintendo's trail and announce details every day -- there's not enough random minutiae to get everyone hot and bothered over this. Well, maybe for everyone over at Japanator.
