Capcom’s Morrigan and Saki and Tatsunoko’s Yatterman and Doronjo are highlighted in the latest gameplay footage.

Capcom has released a brand new gameplay trailer that showcases four more characters from the final roster of the American release of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. From the Capcom side we have Morrigan from Darkstalkers, and Saki from a Japan-only arcade game called Quiz Nanairo Dreams.

The Tatsunoko side features Yatterman No.1 and Doronjo, both from the Yatterman series (the latter is the main antagonist of the series and has two henchmen assisting her).

I'm intrigued to hear about the new characters, because now that it's coming to North America and Europe, you'd think that Capcom would make the effort to expand the character roster so that it is more recognizable to the new audience. Let's be honest, with the Tatsunoko half of the roster being completely new to most of the potential market, it's odd that they continue to include Japan-only characters on the Capcom side. At this rate, the number of famous faces is going to be vastly outnumbered by the amount of total strangers.

I hope the developers manage that aspect of the game correctly. In my opinion, it's not as enjoyable when you don't have the slightest clue who you're playing as. One of the awesome elements of the Smash Bros. franchise is having so many iconic figures being playable. Can Capcom redeem this currently Japanese-centric roster? We'll have to wait and see, though I fully believe there should be at least one Resident Evil representative for Ultimate All-Stars.
