5.0 out of 5 stars Fighting fans rejoice!, January 27, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
I never thought that this game would ever be released outside of Japan, even after it was announced for U.S. release I still couldn't believe it. There are some awesome detailed reviews here already so I'll spare you the specs and just touch on the key points. If you enjoyed Marvel Vs. Capcom 1/2, Capcom Vs. SNK 1/2 then stop reading and buy this if you haven't yet. If you don't have a Wii, buy a Wii and buy this game. You probably won't recognize many/any of the Tatsunoko characters but that really doesn't matter. Those of you that grew up in the 80's might remember the characters from Gatchaman (G-Force in the states), anime freaks will recognize Karas but that's about it. The rest of the lineup haven't had much exposure over here if any...but they are all spectacular characters for the Vs. series. I love the graphics, the cell-shaded 3D is a perfect fit, makes me hopeful for MvC3 using a similar style (it could happen!). There is a ton of unlockable content, the shop system is pretty much like MvC2 was on the Dreamcast, single player is just as solid as multiplayer thanks to that. The gameplay is basically a simplified MvC2, don't worry though, plenty of depth for the hardcore. This is a 2 on 2 set up and you can freely swap your characters out to regain health, just like MvC. You have 3 attack buttons, light/medium/heavy, and a Partner/Assist button to call in your other character. I honestly don't think the strategy or depth is negatively impacted by a 4 button setup at all, once you play for a few hours you'll start to see how complex 4 buttons can be. I've played MvC2 for nearly 10 years, I have a PS3 and I love Street Fighter IV and BlazBlue but I can say without a doubt that this is the most fun I have had with a fighting game since playing Street Fighter 2 in the arcades all those years ago, only time will tell if it will stay fun for as long. Definitely buy an arcade stick too, you won't regret it. Enjoy, see you all online!

MvC3 is less likely now that Marvel is owned by Disney.

But hey, Disney has licensed games, so who knows.

I fully agree with you, it's a total pipedream but you never know. Disney loves making money above all else and MvC3 could certainly make some serious bucks. If they make Disney Vs Capcom though, I'm hanging up my arcade stick for good...

4/23: aaaaaaaand MvC3 is official, I had a hunch it was in the works when Capcom told all the PS3/360 owners to chill out about TvC not being available to them.
