On today’s Capcom-Unity page, there was a poster who asked about the Wii U’s backwards capability with one specific title Tatsunoko vs Capcom. An interesting post came up from Capcom’s VP Christian Svensson stating that “Our rights with Tatsunoko have lapsed fairly recently (so we’re no longer allowed to sell the title physically or digitally). Unless Japan were to strike a new deal, I’d say the chances of this happening are slim.”
What does this mean? The future sucks for fans of the series. The game can be played on the Wii U, so if you want to play a game that features many of Capcom’s characters facing off against team members from Gatchaman or Casshern, now is your final chance.
The game was a Wii exclusive, and will now become one of those hard to find games.
