Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom All-Stars on Nintendo Wii
At long last, the third-party developers are coming to grips with the Nintendo Wii. The entire video game industry was knocked on its heels in the wake of Wii's disruptive success, and after seemingly going through the five stages of grief (most of the videogame press is still stuck in Anger and Denial stages), we are finally seeing quality games that take respect the hardware and takes advantage of its abilities.
Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom is Capcom's latest fighting title, a revision of its Japanese version from last year, and exclusive to the Wii. If you're an arcade gamer who remembers the Marvel Vs. Capcom series on Sega Dreamcast, you'll be perfectly at home here. TVC promises that same manic intensity and ease of control.
I am really looking forward to this game. The complete lack of any decent fighting games on the Wii is simply scandalous. And there is no excuse why Street Fighter 4 hasn't appeared on Nintendo, none whatsoever. TVC is an excellent move towards solving that problem. Let's hope Capcom supports this game properly and gives it the audience it deserves.
