To celebrate the 55th anniversary of Tatsunoko and the 30th anniversary of the Street Fighter series, both Capcom and Tatsunoko are coming together once again for a special exhibition to be held at the Aqua City Mall in Odaiba, Tokyo. Running from April 21st to May 7th, this exhibition will show off art from Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, as well as offering various Capcom and Tatsunoko-themed activities like giant Monster Hunter balloons, stamp rallies, and panels where you can take your picture with your favorite fighter.

There is also going to be a special character poll, where fans can vote for their favorite character from the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom roster. By the looks of it, it’s probably nothing more than a popularity contest, but it could be the sign of something in the future. With dedicated fans keeping the game alive via the TvC Discord, and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite coming out this year, there is certainly a raised interest in the Versus series as of late.

If anything does get announced, it will most likely be an HD remaster of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom–but even so, it would probably be Japan-only due to the previous difficulties in securing all the Tatsunoko character licenses for a Western audience. Even then, the question remains if it would be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch–like the original being exclusive to the Wii–or whether a potential remaster would come to other consoles and PC. This is all speculation at present, but keep an eye for any news coming out of this TvC exhibition when it opens a week from today.
