Awesome if true.

Do you have a source, or are you one of those insiders?

Looking at the wikipedia article, possible matchups: (?)
Speed Racer vs Ryu
Samurai Pizza Cats vs Strider or Megaman
The characters from that anime about the bible vs... Dimitri?

Flying House and Super Book :lol

Seriously? Ugh

They couldn't have used a more suitable company like Jump?

SoulTaker and Karas would work well in this and I guess Gatchaman to a lesser extent

There's really not much to work with

Hmm well I hope Hurrican Polymar should play alot like KOF's Benimaru
since Benny copied his movies. lol

The scan also lists each characters's CV/Voice Actor... but its too small/blurry
I wonder if all the old original Tatsunoko seiyuu's are still around.

I wonder why they don't do a Namco X Capcom fighter. Didn't the RPG sell pretty well?

How about Capcom vs. Data East? Give me some Karate Champ guys and... Bad Dudes?
Shit, I miss Data East, such a good company.
Anw back to the topic, this game is slated for a 2008 release by Capcom in arcade.

Before people get too excited about the possibility of another pure 2D fighter, it seems this is another 2.5D fighter.

Reminds me of that Data East X Sunsoft animation, designed like Namco X Capcom. Nice work from an amateur, whoever made it.

Great news! :)

Please, Capcom do a good job and don't hire Dragonball games developers this time!

If you're not familiar with Tatsunoko production and you fear they miss fighting characters, please have a look at this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tatsunoko - furthermore it's not the first time we have Tatsunoko chars in a VS (ie Takara's Tatsunoko Fighter for PS1, even it was nothing special).

Please, Capcom!

Don't know about Tatsunoko Productions outside NGE, but Samurai Pizza Cats sure sounds awesome!
They ran it on TV in the West in the early 1990s, fun show.

I have seen the scan, looks pretty nice, reminds me of the old Vs, very busy and colorful. I really like the art of Chun-li, I guess the sprite is an old one (can't appreciate it). Hope they port it to consoles.

Oo er, what an unexpected crossover. Surely this will be a another copyright nightmare if released outside Japan, though, what with so many different American companies owning the rights to their properties. Still, new 2D Capcom fighter FTW.

Speed Racer and Gatchaman alone would be a nightmare.

Well it ain't Marvel Vs Capcom 3, or Nintendo Vs Capcom for that matter, but beating Dante with the Samurai Pizza Cats is pretty damn awesome by itself.
