Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Ultimate All-Stars
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes - Original Japanese release and arcade title
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Ultimate All-Stars is a 2D fighting game which pits characters from the Tatsunoko and Capcom franchises against each other (a series which first started with Marvel vs. Capcom). Players choose two characters from the large roster of characters. Rather than having two "rounds" of battle, each battle is one long continuous round - if one of the player's characters is KO'd, then they'll automatically switch to the other one. If the other character is KO'd at this point, then the player loses the match.
To prevent this from happening, players can swap characters dynamically during the match. When a character takes damage, some of their health bar will turn red - if the player swaps the character out at this time, the red bar will recover. In addition, players can use an 'Assist' attack as they swap in their character to deal more damage to their opponent. By strategically swapping and attacking, players can turn the tables on their foes.
Each character has, as well as standard light, medium and strong attacks, special moves suited to their character (such as Ryu's Hadoken) and hyper combos which can only be used when the hyper combo gauge is filled. These attacks cause much more damage than standard attacks and are often difficult to block.
