Capcom’s partnership with Japanese animation company Tatsunoko Productions has expired, meaning that the publisher can no longer sell physical or digital copies of 2010 Wii fighter Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
Capcom’s Senior VP Christian Svensson revealed the bad news over on a Capcom-Unity message board thread. Responding to the possibility of bringing the popular fighter over to the Wii U, Svensson said:
“Our rights with Tatsunoko have lapsed fairly recently (so we're no longer allowed to sell the title physically or digitally). Unless Japan were to strike a new deal, I'd say the chances of this happening are slim.”
