Tatsunoko vs. Capcom's producer talks about the characters that they wanted in the game.
In a web chat hosted by Capcom, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom producer Ryota Niitsuma talked about some of the Tatsunoko characters that were considered to be in the game.
The first of these were the Samurai Pizza Cats. Known as Catto Ninden Teyandee in Japan, Capcom were in talks with Tatsunoko about their inclusion, but ultimately fell through.
"We at Capcom too, wanted to see the Samurai Pizza Cats in the game. We were in discussion with Tatsunoko productions to try to get them in the game. It went right up the last minute, but it didn't go through,"
Another Tatsunoko character that was considered for the game was Speed Racer, but the team felt his character was limited in terms of fighting moves. "They thought about Speed Racer, but he's just a race car driver. It would be hard to incorporate his race car into the game."
Finally, the producer confirms that the animated endings seen in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes will not be present in Ultimate All-Stars. Instead, the game will feature the previously announced endings by UDON.
