Tatsunoko vs. Capcom 2: Grand Evolution (in Japan, the title is Tatsunoko VS Kapukom 2nd: Barrage of the New World) is the official sequel for Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars (the original name was Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes.) It's published by Capcom and developed by Eighting... Also, Grand Evolution is available for the Wii U, Taito Type X2 arcade board, GigaCom (known briefly as Tatsunoko vs. Capcom II: Giga Attack), and Playstation 3 consoles. Unlike its predecessor, TvC2 includes more characters (Megaman Volnutt has also been omitted due to wonky movesets; Megaman X replaced him), reworked balances, character themes (although, the Japanese version of the first installment had it before), new and returning stages, and the inclusion of animated character endings (which had the same purpose as character themes: only from the original version of the first game). Rated T for Teen.
