Tatsunoko vs. Capcom heading West

Update: Confirmed for US and Europe.

Update: Capcom has told Eurogamer: "It's coming to Europe. We'll have more details to announce at E3."

Original Story: Capcom's Wii crossover beat-'em-up Tatsunoko vs. Capcom has been officially confirmed for the West, albeit only the US at this point.

The game, which brings the likes of Ryu, Chun-Li and Viewtiful Joe together with characters from the Tatsunoko Productions anime stable, came out in Japan in December.

In the US, it will be known as Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars, and Capcom has said that it will be available for hands-on play at E3 the week after next - 2nd to 4th June.

This also fills in one of the blanks on Capcom's E3 schedule, which is known to include two unannounced games - now one.

Writing in the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom comment thread on the publisher's blog, US PR boss Chris Kramer said Capcom had "no plans to put the game on PS3 or 360" in answer to excitable posters.

We've contacted Capcom in Europe to find out what's in store for us.
