Where did you buy that at?

I picked it up in Hong Kong...for 69.99 at the time.
Granted, the english translation isn't the best (must read subtitles) but totally worth it. The American version G-force is heavily, Heavily watered down....so its great to watch this in its original form.

So I'm confused, is it 2D or 3D? Some of these screens look like hand-drawn sprites, others look like 3D models.

TEKKAMAN CONFIRMED!

Now, if they have Tekkaman Blade as well, I'm all over it!

Also, Harmony Gold doesn't own EVERY (or even most, AFAIK) of Tatsunoko's IP's here in the states, but they do own the one everyone cares about: Macross (the original one).

In any case, as I and others mentioned like 15 pages ago, you won't be seeing Macross in this game because Tatsunoko does not own, nor did they create Macross. Same goes for Evangelion; the shows were created by other studios (Studio Nue and GAINAX, respectively), and Tatsunoko was contracted to animate the shows.

GAINAX owns EVA and Big West/Bandai owns Macross.

The end

Capcom USA's Christian Svensson:
We haven't discussed any home console plans for the title yet, so platform discussions are a bit premature. All that's been anounced is arcade... There are a lot of licensing issues around the title given that those properties are held by different companies across the West and they vary by territory greatly. It was created as a Japan-only project but we're investigating.

Heh, Soki from Onimusha. Now where the hell is Viewtiful Joe?


Edit: Hmm, I noticed how the controlscheme only seems to use 4 buttons. A Wii version using the Wiimote/Nunchuck is actually viable now.

Well considering Joe himself is a near parody of Tatsunoko type characters, I'd like to see him there too :)

Its awesome that we are getting Onimusha representation, but why not Samonosuke?

And yeah, Viewtiful Joe would fit perfectly with this game.

Why the hell is he in the game? I understand someone like Samanosuke or Jubei if Onimusha characters are allowed, but not him.

I agree with Viewtiful Joe though. :D

Only 3 attack buttons and 1 for tag, apparently, according to a post in the srk forums.

That means less basic attacks than Smash Bros... I guess a Wii port isn't really too unlikely.

Is that... a new Morrigan model I see...?

I'm pretty sure that was foretold as one of the signs of the apocalypse...

hopefully there are a lot more characters to be announced.

both companies have a wealth of characters left to pull from.

Capcom has should put in Nero or Dante, a Monster Hunter character, RE character, Bionic commando, Megaman or Zero, and a character kinda like Soki from a series we wouldnt expect.

Tatsunoko should add Speed Racer, Shulato, Soul Taker, Karas, Itadakiman, and anyone else since i cant really gauge the popularity of their characters.

i was hoping we would get tekkaman blade but it doesnt look like that will happen

He was also in Capcom Fighting Evolution/Jam, although admittedly most people have erased that from their minds..

Oh, right... :lol

Even though it's a crossover game, I hadn't thought about it while typing because it only has Capcom stuff.

The reason Samanosuke is not in you should know why....

Surely something about a contract issue with the actor lending its face to the character? Anyway I would have had the same reaction for any Onimusha character (minus Jean Reno), Capcom are missing the opportunity to give us a great corporate wank fighting game.

Phoenix Wright vs Dante vs Leon Kennedy BELIEVE!
