Capcom’s upcoming Tatsunoko VS Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars seems like an odd choice for the Nintendo Wii. The company has lots of fans of its “vs.” fighting games on the PS3 and Xbox 360; it just seems like a better fit on those consoles and their respective audiences. Producer Ryota Niitsuma told Gamasutra why the game is on the Wii and how the company is taking advantage of the hardware:
If you take the Wii for example, we don’t just want to put a game out on the Wii. We want to put out a game on the Wii that actually utilizes all the capabilities of the Wii. I like to think about the people who bought a Wii just to play a game like this. I want to take care of them, too.
I think, as I said previously, we’ve tried to exploit the Wii to its full potential for this game. Of course, that’s just my opinion, but, I mean, Capcom might come down on me and say, ‘Hey, we want to make more money, so put on this,’ but that’s on them.
Those are all very nice sentiments, but I can’t imagine this game not hitting the PS3 and/or Xbox 360. While it won’t be as successful as Street Fighter IV on those platforms, it would still be like leaving money on the table.
Any Wii owners out there picking this one up? Any PS3/Xbox 360 owners wishing for it to hit their consoles?
