I'm excited about Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. It seems like a blast to play. Sure, I could always import it and play it on the Hombrew Channel, but I'd much rather have a true blue localization. That said, Capcom has time and time again expressed difficulties in bringing the title outside of Japan, citing a series of sticky licensing problems with Tatsunoko properties. Yesterday, in an interview with Joystiq, Seth Killian once again brought to light the problems of a TvC localzaition:
"It's a lot of 'dance with the lawyers' on that one," explained Killian. "The rights holders for Tatsunoko in Japan are one company, but in the U.S. it's ... 13 companies -- and some are very attentive and some are not."
A very sticky situation indeed. In the words of Joystiq, "if you've been holding your breath for this one, you might want to consider coming up for air."
