Neat!

Wonder what the ulterior motive may be for such an event, but any love and attention this game gets is a good thing!

i'd love a sequel, i'd import it day one. This was my favorite fighter last gen
To be frank though i'd probably just main Batsu again... I'd do bad things for a new Rival Schools. (or capcom to make a Capcom All Stars which would have all the fighters finally join together)

MvCi already looks like it could be a new TvC or SFxT, but shit I'd take the real deal any day.

New TvC is a day one for me. Such a great game.

I really hope for a sequel. I really enjoy this game. Frost Faustings tournament was awesome.

Glad to see the best VS game of last generation getting some love.
This. Game was much better than Marvel 3.

Interesting. I'd be down for even a HD port for Switch or other consoles. A sequel would be even better, but I don't want to get my hopes up.

I love TvC; it's my favorite versus title. Hoping for a sequel on Switch.

The best character is Ippatsuman

I'd be happy with even just a port to current consoles. I always thought the game looked really fun, but I don't have a fight stick and couldn't justify buying one for a single game, so I never played TvC.

So much this. Mega Crash needed more restrictions and giants were a terrible idea, but the combo system and Baroque were incredible.

My absolute favorite traditional fighter.

People should subscribe to this channel that hosts weekly TvC tournaments.

I don't want TvC to be stuck on a Nintendo platform again...if they must at least put it on multiple platforms this time. TvC is so good but, didn't get enough of an audience.

This event though? Is probably nothing.
TvC sold VERY well for what it was. I'd argue that it being Wii exclusive could have helped it.

Hell, that game was fun. I'd love to see a rerelease / sequel.

I wish the Stateside / Europe version of the original had Hakushon Daimaou - I loved that anime when I was a kid.

MvCI being a thing kills any possibility of a TvC, in my opinion. Shonen Jump vs Capcom, maybe?
Well, not a new game, unless we start hearing about Capcom acquiring the license to Tatsunoko properties again.

But if they had a small team that was able to bring an upgraded port of SSF2T HD Remix to Switch, I can imagine a similar-sized team could also do likewise for TvC, if Capcom wanted to continue a comfortable, if somewhat lazy/noncommittal support of Capcom fighting games on Nintendo's newest platform.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom was such a weird game. What odd character choices (Mega Man Volnutt, really?). That's why I love it.

One of the few fighting games where I felt there's a lot unique to the original release.

The character songs that acted as the soundtrack, the animated movies, all the motion minigames and the genie character never made it into the second version.

A sequel would be friggin' awesome but a HD port to Switch would be great as well, that game is highly underrated.

I should have prefaced that I didn't mean sales since it did do pretty well for a fighting game on the Wii, I meant people playing it at tournaments and stuff, it was kinda short lived all things considering. Then again Marvel 3 might be more to blame than the platform it was on the more I think of it.

Either way, any kinda thing I would like to see.

At most they'll drop a HD version for the Switch/maybe other systems, but I doubt it'll get anything substantial. MVC:I already heads in that direction, so having TvC2, besides the characters, would be sorta redundant.

Man I loved this game even though I'm terrible at fighters. A friend and I would go back and forth on it a lot back in the day, shame it never felt like it picked up bigger in the tournament scene but I guess that was to be expected given the system.

I'll take an HD port or a sequel any day though.

Sequel or HD version, I'll pick it up for sure.

I need to play it again with my newfound appreciation for Hurricane Polymar.

Yes the Wii was a lot to blame for it not being at locals. That being said, Marvel 3 and Street Fighter IV had more to do with it than anything. The game would have likely set fire to the FGC if the 2009 renaissance hadn't happened.

Agreed, but there's a big part of me that wishes for otherwise.

What made me love TvC was the roster picks on both sides. I'd almost imagine that a sequel would continue in that vein, and Capcom would even up the ante with more outlandish, very "Japanese" picks that wouldn't see the light of day in a more Western-facing product like a MvC game. Date Masamune, Fou-lu, the sky could be the limits!

And at the very least, I'd imagine Tatsunoko wouldn't care about their characters being "Midnight Bliss'd". Hell, I'd imagine they'd relish in it.

TvC2 is my current dream game that will likely never come to fruition. Glad to see TvC still getting some love, no matter how little

If there is something new or a re-release, Jesus anything but the switch please.

Would like there to be an actual scene. And arcade sticks

And yes I've run tournaments of TvC in the past.
