Capcom And Namco Supposedly Planning Two Different Fighting Games

Mega Man vs Pac-man Rumor has it that Capcom isn't content to rest on its Marvel vs Capcom 3 crossover laurels.  Kotaku has word via Game Informer that the company is teaming up with Namco Bandai to develop not one, but two fighting games.  First up is Capcom vs Namco, a Street Fighter IV-type 2D fighting game developed by Capcom featuring characters from both companies.  Then there's a different project, Namco vs Capcom, which is being created in the 3D Tekken 6 style by Namco starring characters from... well, you get the idea.

As fighting game fans are already no doubt coming to grips with, this would mean two significantly different games, Street Fighter IV's 2D arenas contrasted nicely with Tekken's more three-dimensional combat.  GI say that Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono is handling Capcom's side of the deal, while it's expected Namco Bandai's Katsuhiro Harada will be in charge of the opposing project.  If this information is good - and there have certainly been strong hints to suggest it is - then the two games' debut trailers will be shown this weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con.

This matches some rumblings I heard a while ago about a "Tekken vs Street Fighter" project, so as a Capcom fighting fan I'm glad to see there's apparently some validity to this after all.  I'm hoping for some legendarily epic match-ups: Mega Man vs Pac-Man!  Ken Masters vs The Prince of All Cosmos!  Nathan Spencer vs Fygar!  Oh yes; this could be good.
