Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a fighting game featuring stars from Capcom's series of games and Tatsunoko anime. Players choose between 26 characters to engage in a series of 2-on-2 brawls.

The game is playable online, a feature Common Sense Media does not recommend to children under the age of 12.
What's it about?
TATSUNOKO VS. CAPCOM is a fighting game that features 26 characters from the Capcom and Tatsunoko anime universes. Players choose two fighters and battle their way through opponents in Arcade mode. Players can also compete in Survival mode, where they outlast waves of opponents, or Time Trial mode, requiring players to beat opponents as fast as possible.
Is it any good?
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom features some quirky characters that many players in the U.S. might not be familiar with, but the brawler delivers simple yet highly entertaining fighting. Controls are very easy to pick up compared to other fighters, and the game features bright, colorful visuals. Characters offer a broad array of attacks and battle strategies for those seeking a deeper experience. Some of the character stories, however, are incredibly bizarre and hard to follow. Fans curious about the fighting genre might find this game an easy stepping stone.
Online interaction: Players can compete with others via Wi-Fi, but there's no online chat option.
