Capcom confirms Hakushon Daimao won't be in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom While this isn't a shock for anyone who's followed Tatsunoko vs. Capcom closely, it has been confirmed that, Hakushon Daimao, the genie, will not be in the game. Here's the bit via Siliconera.
“I guess it’s OK to tell everyone this now,” Ryota Niitsuma, Producer of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom said in an interview with Siliconera. “He’s [Hakushon Daimao] not in the game. We had some licensing issues with him so we weren’t able to obtain him for the American version.”

Hakushon Daimao is a genie and the lead character in a 1970s anime series. Capcom added him to the home version of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. Unfortunately, Daimao and his math mini-game will remain in Japan. New characters will replace Daimao, but Niitsuma was careful not to reveal them at this time.
The good news is that they will have a longer interview with Ryota Niitsuma later on in the week and will cover online play and other topics.
