[Games] Speed Racer vs…. Ryu?

Hmm well we don’t know yet, but it could happen! Kotaku has pointed out that Capcom will be making another cross over game a la Marvel vs. Capcom, but this time it’s with anime studio Tatsunoko, who brought to us the likes of Speed Racer, Gatchaman, Macross/Robotech, Casshern and Karas, among others.







As the upcoming Famitsu scan shows, the title will be “Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, Cross Generation of Fighters.” There will at least be Chun-Li and Ken Washio from Gatchaman in the game as they’re clearly shown in the scans. So far I don’t think it’s known how many characters will join the fray, but I wouldn’t doubt that they would put at least one character from most if not all of the series that Tatsunoko has worked on. Megaman vs. Casshern! Chun-Li’s spinning bird kick vs. Swan Jun’s….whatever! Some Zentraedi guy or girl vs…I dunno… Zangief? lol


To be honest I haven’t seen many of the anime series that Tatsunoko has had a hand in, but hey at least I know some of them are historical series and have paved the way for much of what we see today. Some of the series have even withstood the sands of time and are as popular as ever (Macross Frontier, Speed Racer). Whatever the case, this is some pretty neat news and hope that more cross overs come about because of this. As far as I can see, crossover games are wildly popular (Marvel vs Capcom, Capcom vs. Snk, Smash Bros., Kingdom Hearts, etc…), so I don’t think this game should be any different. Who doesn’t love seeing their favorite characters from all over punching each other in the gut? lol

Didn’t mention this before, but apparently this will be some kind of tag-team based fighter, as this screenshot more clearly shows. It also doesn’t seem to be strictly 2D, as it looks kind of like there’s a pseudo 3D thing going on. Kind of like Street Fighter IV minus the ‘roids. Body proportions and all that seem to borrow from past Capcom fighting games.
