Tatsunoko vs. Capcom event in NYC

DSC_0220-thumb-web

Me and a few friends went to the Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom launch event at Nintendo World today here in New York City. It was a fairly small event, nothing big and nothing fancy. They held a competition to win a free copy of the game before it comes out on tuesday January 26th. Ryota Niitsuma, producer of the game, was there to sign autographs for fans.

Capcom is one of a few third party publishers on the Wii who brings quality titles in the U.S. They recently spoke to Gamasutra about having difficulties finding success on the platform. Chris Kramer, Capcom senior director of communications and community, said that “If you’re not Nintendo, it does seem harder to make money on the Wii today compared to the PS3 and the Xbox 360. It’s a very tough market to crack and is ever-shifting.” Sad but very true.

Here are some other pictures from the event.

  1. Very cool, thanks for sharing! I had a chance to go to Nintendo World for the Scribblenauts launch and had a good time. Did they have any promo items for the grabbing?

  2. no promos unfortunately. just the double sided poster with ryota’s signature on the side that you prefer. there were alot of people there but mostly because of the competition. most of those peeps didnt care for mr. niitsuma’s appearance :/

  3. DAMN IT! I wish I was in NYC for the event. I would’ve had Ryota autograph my Japan imported Wii copy of Tatsunoko vs Capcom and the poster 😛
