Tekkaman: The Space Knight
Tekkaman: The Space Knight is about the perils of earth in the 21st century. Earth is dying due to all the pollution that has happened over the years and and scientists are trying to reverse the damage. This is called “the Green Earth project”, but it is soon abandoned since no matter what they do the earth will be destroyed in three years time. Soon scientists look to the stars to find another planet to live on since Earth is no longer a habitable place to live on. They create a spaceship called “The Space Angel” to search the stars and report back when they find a place that can support life.
While on its mission to find this “Second Earth” it is attacked by a group of aliens named the “Waldaster”. Soon the Space Angel is destroyed and with it the hope of mankind, as the aliens soon set their eyes on destroying Earth.
A scientist by the name of Dr. Amachi manages to create two devices, “Pegas” and the “Tekset” system. With these a normal human can fight off the aliens since the “tekset” augmenting their own natural abilities giving them the strength to destroy them. This transforms Joji Minami and Hiromi Amachi, along with Andro Uemeda and Mutan, two alien beings from the planet Sanno, into the space knights. So that the space knights can combat the threat of the “Waldaster” and continue to search for a new planet.
Joji, who transforms into Tekkaman, will be in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
Wow, so I DO know characters of this game! Battle of the Planets and Crazy Genie, as they’re known down here in Brazil.
WHAAT?! They include these I’ve never heard of but leave out several that CAN fight easily without much help. The Samurai Pizza Cats would like a word with you Tatsunoko…
Wow!!!! Thanks for the post Infendo. I’m a huge Street Fighter fan and love the Capcom Vs. series games. I will be getting this game and my only wish was that I knew more about the Tatsunoko characters. So to whoever wrote this one, You are mega dragon punch awesome!!!!!!
Zachs, afraid it’s not that simple. Kyatto Ninden Teyandee was a joint effort, and the licensing for it is a mess, it was sadly never going to happen, same deal with Macross.
Amazingly, licensing issues have actually worked in /my/ favor here as well, as I hate that Genie with the fury of a thousand Foreman grills and he’s been axed for local release, hurrah!
Also thanks infendo, there were a couple here I wasn’t familiar with (polymar, yatterman & karas).
Whoa! Great post, Will. I know stuff now.
great post you filled in the gaps of the unknown characters for me. all i have to say though is i will never switch from karas if he moves like in the movie how can he be beat??? well maybe the golden zippo guy too
