2 new characters revealed for the Capcom arcade fighting game Tatsunoko VS Capcom.

On the Tatsunoko side we have Tekkaman from "Tekkaman: The Space Knight ('75)" -

HOLY F*$king Sh*t!! Tekkaman AND Batsu!? With this one gesture I've forgiven Capcom for everything they've done to piss me off, yes even Street Fighter 4. Make me proud and bring it to PS3 with online play, best fighting game ever will be confirmed then.

If it's coming to the japanese arcade this winter then it won't be available for console for another 6 months to a year.
