Some interesting news has come out of UDON Entertainment today.
As we all likely know by now, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is being bulked up for its worldwide release, and a major part of that is the addition of new characters. So naturally, just slapping the same endings the original version had into this one just won’t cut it– something new has to be done for the guys who were not in the original game.
As such, new endings are being created, from top to bottom, by the fine folks at UDON Entertainment. This may please some fans, who might recall that the cover of the 2006 release Mega Man X Collection (seen at right) was illustrated by the folks at UDON.
By following this link, you can view Capcom’s USTREAM video of the game in action from the Consumer Electronics Show, which even reveals one character’s ending at about six minutes into the hour-long video feed. Unfortunately, however, the endings are not fully-animated, but are instead still-frames with text captions.
Personally speaking, I don’t think this is necessarily a bad thing, as this provides us with some nice new artwork, rather than some short off-model animations, such as this one for MegaMan Volnutt:
Of course, that’s not to say that those are bad; some appear to be rather funny, despite the Japanese language barrier. Perhaps Capcom can sneak those in as a sort of unlockable bonus of some kind?
