Rumour: Namco Vs Capcom, Capcom Vs Namco In Development

Those aren't two interpretations of the same piece of news; if Game Informer are to be believed, then two fighting games are currently in development, both pitting the stars of Namco against the stars of Capcom.

Note these are fighting games, not a continuation of the old RPG title that appeared on the previous hardware generation. Why two games? Simple: each company makes one! Capcom would be developing Capcom vs Namco, built on the Street Fighter IV engine, while Namco will develop Namco vs Capcom, which will run on the Tekken 6 engine.

As fighting game fans are already no doubt understanding, this would mean two significantly different fighting games, Street Fighter IV's 2D arenas contrasted with Tekken's full-blown 3D combat.

GI say that Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono is producing Capcom's side of the deal, while it's expected Namco Bandai's Katsuhiro Harada will be in charge of the opposite project.

If this information is good, then the two games' debut trailers will be shown this weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con.

    Sounds like a mess. I hope it's not true.

    hope its true. will buy the capcom version but

      I will get the Capcom version too....

    could be awesome... what's the harm in trying?

    however I agree it does sound potentially pretty bad :)

    Anyone else annoyed that they keep using the Megaman Legend incarnation for the Megaman characters? WHEN IS MM3 COMING OUT CAPCOM!!

    i hope its true and the fact they make 2 versions of it cause i think it would be awesome. i always thought of what the fight would be like akuma versus nightmare or rufus versus bob. i think asuka or xaioyu will beat ibuki and sakura lol

    My dream of Marvel vs Capcom vs Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe is possible!

    Also, wouldn't an Mortal Kombat v Tekken v Street Fighter v Super Smash Brothers be completely awesome?

      None of what you said would be awesome.It would just be messy and prove that developers have started to run out of ideas.

    I wouldnt mind this. Fairly interesting, like the SF vs KOF thing back in the late 90's. If they both manage to pull it off it would be good. BUT THIS IS THE NAMCO cover art. Where the hell is Heihachi???!!??!

    Stahn and Rutee?
    I'm sold no matter what happens here on out.

    Oh wow. Sounds like the same deal with Capcom vs. SNK and SNK vs. Capcom.

    They each just better have a Pac-Man vs. Mega Man (classic) rivalry. That's all I want. The mascots of both companies fighting it out. (They should have been in Brawl!)

    JIN? RYU? KEN?
    JINRYUKEN?!?
    Sounds like a real move in Street Fighter.
    All kinds of awesome.
