Who Won Those Tatsunoko Vs Capcom Arcade Stick Bundles?

We know you've been dying to find out. So let's get on with it. And take a look at some Kotaku readers in silly cosplay outfits.

All last week we were offering you the chance to win a copy of Tatsunoko Vs Capcom: Ultimate All Stars for Wii and two limited edition (and not yet for sale in Australia) official Tatsunoko Vs Capcom arcade sticks, pictured.

You'll notice the above paragraph only mentions one prize while the original competition post said there'd be two. Well... I screwed up. I misinterpreted what Capcom were offering. They wanted to provide two sticks to the one winner, rather than one stick each to two winners.

So, here's the deal: it makes sense to give both sticks to one person. It's a two-player game, after all. But how to compensate the rest of you who entered thinking there'd be two chances to win? Well, how about NINE of you each get a runners-up prize of a copy of the game? Is that OK?

Please tell me that's OK. Yes? Good.

To be in the running you had to submit a photo of yourself cosplaying a versus showdown. We were looking for effort and imagination and, well, something funny.

The first prize winner is... Michael M! Michael (and friend) not only did a superlative job with the outfits, but the choice of second characters is inspired.

And our nine runners-up are, in alphabetical order: Adam, blunt, Dean, Joel P, Josh S, Lucas, Stephen Y, "thatguy" and Ying H. Well done, everyone. Click the thumbs to view each entry full size.


    I'm curious - how many people actually entered this one?

    Congrats to the winners - I wanted this game but didn't have the gall to dress up in cosplay to get it, so I applaud all who did!

    SIF not give it to the guy punching out the voice of mario!

    I'd like to thank Kotaku and Capcom for rewarding my photographic evidence of facing off in a DEATHLY MIRROR MATCH TO THE DEATH which was totally not taken in my bathroom in the stupid hours of the morning.

      lol, that one is awesome... though I predict a double KO in that bout...

      Congrats to the winners and all that entered! :D

    haha well done guys - much deserved :)

    Thanks so much Kotaku! I will dedicate my crushing defeats to Kit, who made all of this possible. Now to order GC converters for the X-arcade tankstick.

    Thankyou very much Kotaku and Capcom!

    Good job everyone! Some great photos. I love the mirror Ninja.

    I'm the master chief guy in the first runner up photo. Lucky for me I also know the winners of the sticks! I didn't even know they were entering. I guess it's lucky for us the PAL version has online!

    I've got a feeling we're gonna be playing alot of this game for a while...
