Tatsunoko vs. Capcom new details along with leaked characters

Tekkaman Blade was announced earlier today along with the news of the updated North American and European version heading to Japan as well. Apparently some one looked into the code of the Japanese websites and found character names, some just happened to be the new characters Capcom was teasing.  Mega Man Zero from the Mega Man series, Frank West the man who has covered wars, Yatterman #2 the female counter part of Yatterman and Joe Asakura from G-Force  were listed and then quickly removed by Capcom.

While Famitsu said Hakushon Daimao, the large genie fighter, would appear in the game in Japan, Capcom corrected this saying that he will also be removed from the Japanese roster. This is probably due to Tatsunoko vs. Capcom’s online mode being word wide. Meaning the only way you can play that character is through the original Japanese release.
