As has been explained several times before...the legal red tape situation regarding Tatsunoko properties is why the US is not likely to get this game.

In Marvel's case, Capcom only had to deal with Marvel directly. So, that meant when the game was released in the States, and abroad, you only had to deal with one company.

In Tatsunoko's case, that's not the case. In Japan, Capcom only had to deal with Tatsunoko directly. In the States, Capcom would have to deal with an undefined number of different companies, who Tatsunoko made deals with regarding their different properties, in order to release the game.



So, basically, take a look at the Jump ____ Stars games on the DS. Those games never came over here either, for basically the same reasons that TC won't.

Japan were able to get it because marvel wasn`t know much there.The only show of marvel inj japan was made by toei.It was a spider-man show that is really different from the original american character.That was the only marvel show in japan and that it.When capcom asked to publish the vs series in japan,the serie was already over so they could just ask them topublish it.

On the other hand,tatsunoko has several series like battle of the planets or tekkaman.So,it more complicated to get it.The guy capcom need to meet are the studio who own tekkaman and the one who have karas.I dont know but because they are several franchise owned in north america,it going to be harder but still possible.

For me,it not the right issue but the image of tatsunoko.Not a lot of people are familiar with tatsunoko so it going to be hard to convaic people to get it except youre familiar with either the character or if you are a fan of the vs series.It not likely the game is going to sell either.

Its release is not impossible but it going to be hard and it going to be risky to sell to us.This is one reason why tvc will probably not going to be released here.

But if capcom can do it,the number of people who are going to watch either the gatchaman movie or casshan sins is going to increase witch result more money for the compagnie,a bigger fanbase and a better knowledge of tatsunoko character.The same thing that was done with marvel in japan will be the same for us with tatsunoko.

This is why anime crossover never makes it way, the developer need to be careful for crossing over any anime series/company for licensing issues outside of Japan. The only one that can be easy to localize with crossing over anime company is Sunrise, which all of their anime are licensed by the same company in stateside.

Ignited-MP3, just relax now, since you already sent an e-mail to Capcom of Japan about licensing issues, and you sent Sunrise an e-mail for Capcom to license the Sunrise franshise to make a crossover game to localize easier. Just sit back and see what would capcom do to this game, whether it's localize here, if not, Capcom will take your ideas to make the crossover game for Japanese and Westerner perfectly balance for licensing issues to localize.

True, but Sunrise crossover games have too many series almost completely unknown to the west so they never release them outside Asia.

They have quite some well known in here, like Gundam, Code Geass, Mai-HiME/Otome, Cowboy Bebop, Witch Hunter Robin, and Vision of Escaflowne.

I know.
But their crossover games don't just introduce those localized for the west.

Incorrect, actually.

Marvel actually had a sizable influence and presence in Japan. Yes, there was the Tokusatsu (live-action) Spider-man show from TOEI, but there was also more to it than that.

The same American Marvel cartoons that a lot of us go to know in the 80s and 90s? Japan got those too. The 90s Spidey and X-men toons were the very ones that the Japanese loved and grew up with, as much as we did.


What really happened was as follows:

Back in the late 90s (when Marvel was on the brink of bankruptcy again), Marvel was free to distribute the rights to their properties to any interested buyers, as that was how they got easily got money. Capcom saw a clear and present opportunity to try and cash in on the world-wide appeal of the Marvel brand, and that's how the various Capcom/Marvel collaborations were born.


Again, the only reason why the Marvel games were able to be released as easily as they were over in Japan, was due more to the fact that, in pretty much every case, Capcom only had to deal with Marvel directly. There were no "middle-men" to deal with, which is exactly the opposite, in the case with Tatsunoko properties in the US, currently.

If it was just a thing of Capcom only having to deal with Tatsunoko directly here too, there would be no problem with a US release. But that's obviously not the case...
