Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is generally considered one of the best fighters of this generation, and arguably the best fighting game for the Wii. So, if you've been interested in this game but haven't tried it yet, better pick it up fast: Capcom rights to the Tatsunoko license have expired, meaning Capcom can no longer legally sell the game.

"Our rights with Tatsunoko have lapsed fairly recently (so we're no longer allowed to sell the title physically or digitally)," said Capcom Senior Vice President Christian Svenson. "Unless Japan were to strike a new deal, I'd say the chances of this happening are slim."

Overlooked compared to Capcom's other crossover fighters such as Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Street Fighter x TekkenTatsunoko vs. Capcom was still a great fighter in its own right. And with Capcom losing the rights to sell it, it just became a lot more valuable. Better hit up Amazon and eBay fast!
