Capcom’s told VG247 that its not currently working on any more updates to its historic fighting games, but will almost certainly revisit its older scrapper titles in the future.
“I’ll be honest: right now we have nothing in development, but we’ve been pleased with how our fighting games have performed and our re-releases have performed, so I’d be shocked if we didn’t explore that further,” Capcom US business chief Chris Svensson said in a phone interview yesterday.
The publisher’s recent fighter releases needed some space “to breathe,” added the exec.
“We have put out a fair number of fighting games in a very short window,” he said.
“We had HD Remix, Street Fighter IV, MvC2, we’ll have Tatsunoko in the pipeline, and we have who knows what coming that we can’t talk about yet, but suffice to say there’s been a lot of fighting activity out of Capcom in the last year-and-a-half, and we probably need to give all of those products a little room to breathe and perform before we do some more.”
Svensson was talking to us for this week’s podcast.

GameSpot sends word that Tatsunoko vs. Capcom will pick up four shady-looking characters during its road trip to the West. Fortunately, it just so happens that all of these characters are proficient fighters, so they’ll be in the game! Hooray!
Sadly, Capcom stopped just short of saying who the new characters are. All we know is that Phoenix Wright will not be one of them.
So, any guesses on who the fiersome foursome might be?

According to an NGamer article (via GoNintendo), Phoenix Wright was originally slated to apply his brand of word-fu to the fisticuffs of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. However, the iron-willed lawyer didn’t make the cut. Why not? Ryota Niitsuma, producer on Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom, explained.
“Because Phoenix Wright only has one move, ‘Objection,’ we struggled. We designed a move for him: when he says objection, the actual writing attacks the opponent,” he said.
“However, ‘objection’ in Japanese is ‘igiari’ – it’s four characters, whereas ‘objection’ becomes ten. When we localize, the balance of the game gets destroyed because the move becomes bigger. There’d be no way of avoiding it! We had to remove [Phoenix] for these reasons. In the future, it is one of our aims to get him in.”
So now you know.

A video for Tatsunoko Vs Capcom has been released out of Comic-Con along with some pretty pictures.
The Wii game video posted after the break shows Viewtiful Joe fighting it out, and it looks rather decent. Supposedly, it’s out this winter in the US sometime, with the UK date to be announced.
Also, Mad Catz stopped by the Capcom booth at Comic-Con with a non-playable Fight Stick with artwork from the game plastered on it.
Apparently, the company is wanting feedback on it, so head on over to Capcom Unity and give your opinion on the matter. We know you have one.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars is going to be a Wii title only according to Capcom, because it would easier for the developers to create a sequel than port it to “next-gen” consoles.
“The game is optimized for the Wii system, especially the graphics features, so if we were to port it to PS3 or Xbox 360 we would have to make the game from scratch,” the game’s producer Ryota Niitsuma told Videogamer. “And in that case we might as well just make a sequel of the series on those consoles rather than porting it.”
Not very good news if you were hoping for this.
