And suddenly any copies available are swept up by the herd of sellers to sell on eBay.

I bought a copy from the bargain bin at Futureshop for $8 new. Prices will probably skyrocket for this game now.

Who cares. As with most of the Wii games out there it was pir8ed to hell and back and now it's all over the net. Don't worry Capcom, your game will continue to be in the hands of many Wii owners and Wii emulator players for years to come.

I'm glad I already have this game. I dodged a bullet, there.

Wait so this is only "Ultimate All-Stars"? and not Cross-Generation?

Well not sad to hear then, honestly the original is superior, sure you don't have 4 characters, but in exchange I get all the originals BGM as they fight and switch in AS WELL as Animated Endings and much better extras and menus, they can keep Tekkaman Blade and Frank West.

But we get Zero, who is the epitome of cool.
Although I wish we had the original soundtrack (why couldn't the Capcom themes at least be in the international version? They are owned by Capcom!), because playing with the replacement soundtrack sucks.
But at least the original animated opening was included as an extra.

You know, I'm still baffled as to why this game was released in the U.S. considering that nobody except hardcore anime fans even know anything about Tatsunoko. You would've thought that mainstream gamers would've been confused. Confused

I actually preordered this, so I'm all set, although I really haven't played it much. Maybe I'll pop it in this weekend.

Capcom probably won't renew this licence so buy this game NOW before the price skyrockets further down the road. Dirt-cheap at Gamestop right now. $19.99 used.

This is similar to when Capcom lost their Marvel license for many years, but I don't foresee them renewing their license with Tatsunoko. The game sold well below expectations and eventually became an afterthought after the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

At this point, I stopped caring.

I got a Wii last year for the US & JP version of the game (yup modified). I was hoping that the game would make a port on the PS3/Xbox360 perhaps with HD graphics. But oh well, you never what might happen in the future.
