Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

North America accounts for about 60% of Street Fighter's players

North America accounts for about 60% of Street Fighter's players An internal interview Capcom Japan did with Street Fighter series producer, Yoshinori Ono, reveals that the North Americans account for about 60% of the playerbase for the SF franchise. This is followed by Europe at 30%, and Japan and Asia at 10%.

The interview goes on to cover other details, mostly what it's like working with Namco on Street Fighter X Tekken. Here's a snip to get you on your way.

What is the thing you struggle with most as producer?

Ono: I am always torn between my belief in what is fun and the constant anxiety about whether the game we’re making will actually be fun. These two feelings stay with me until the very end of the development process. I am well aware of the "birth pangs" that go with the development, so I want to do my best to keep our creators motivated while giving them as much advice as I can. Maintaining a healthy balance is really tough.

The fact that these two series have matured and been around for years means that fan expectations are really high. When we first announce "Street Fighter X Tekken," we received some harsh feedback from a few Tekken fans, with people saying “any version of Tekken made by Capcom is bound to be boring" or "Capcom's games are always trash". But we're putting all our efforts into producing a quality game. I got the feeling that all these fans changed their minds once they had chance to play the demo at the game shows.

Desk's standing 720 and Ultra 2 showcase for Super Street Fighter 4 AE

The latest video from Desk shows some applications for his standing 720 Ultra 1 setup.

A little known and little used technique. Demonstrated here in some fairly basic set-ups (vs. opponents wake up from hard knockdown and quick rising). There are many other applications, it also has huge advantages over methods involving buffering part/all of the motion in whiffed attacks. The 540/720 is made slightly easier by kara cancelling another special 1 frame before activation.

You can check out the standing 720 tutorial Desk did back in January of this year after the jump.

Super Street Fighter 4 AE: M.Bison guide updated with the latest information

Super Street Fighter 4 AE: M.Bison guide updated with the latest information The M.Bison guide here on EventHubs has been updated to its latest version. Bison is a very strong character with a gameplan of "whittling rushdown" that is meant to apply pressure from start to finish. His defense is also super good with a backdash, an invincible teleport and four invincible EX moves.

M.Bison is a space control character with powerful pokes and fast walk speed. The dictator also has some of the most powerful corner pressure in the game with scissor kick and poke lockdown. Bison also has some of the best defensive options in the game with five different invincible reversals.

Bison isn't without his problems though. He has a lot of trouble dealing damage in almost every situation except a point blank punish. His Ultras can't assist him well in a match and he doesn't have a consistent anti-air option. Bison's jump is also extremely floaty, making him very easy to anti-air.

The Dictator is also one of the strongest charge characters in the game and has been said to handle the top tier of AE very well.

Super Turbo tribute - RFD 2011 edition by Bob Sagat

Bob Sagat put together an awesome Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo combo video, which also features some zero damage situations. There's lots of cool stuff explored here, see below for some notes from the video author.

Personal goals:

- Feature every character, including Akuma/Gouki in one way or another (Dummy appearances don't count)

- Damage is all or nothing. Every clip must either have a 100% combo, with or without dizzy, or no damage at all with both characters playing a game of tag with no winner.

- Try to show unusual combos or links. Stuff that might be known, but isn't wide-spread knowledge, or completely new stuff altogether.

Game rating stands in way of crossover with Mortal Kombat

Game rating stands in way of crossover with Mortal Kombat Getting a little out of the Capcom realm here, Mortal Kombat series creator, Ed Boon, discussed a crossover possibility with Street Fighter in a recent piece on G4TV. He mentions that they've had many conversations along these lines and that it's something they've dreamt about, but with the SF series being a Teen rated game and Mortal Kombat being primarily a Mature rating game, they'd have some obstacles to overcome.

Here's a clip from the write up.

G4TV: Right. Crossovers seem like all the rage right now. Would you ever think about doing a full crossover with another fighting series?

Ed Boon: We absolutely have thought about it. One of the obstacles is that we’re an M-rated game and all of the other ones, for the most part, are T-rated games. So it’s the same challenge [we've] had with pairing up with the DC characters. It’s harder to match up with which style are you going to go with. But we’ve all dreamt with crossing over with Street Fighter or Tekken. Killer Instinct was also one that was coming up since they were an M-rated game as well. But I’ll tell you that we’ve had many, many conversations along those lines.

G4TV: You mentioned Street Fighter before. Was Mortal Kombat always intended to be a more mature Street Fighter?

Ed Boon: No, it hasn’t been trying to be a Street Fighter as much as we just wanted it to be an alternative fighting game. From the very beginning, I always wanted Mortal Kombat to be a game in which more people would be able to play it. I would witness some people having trouble doing some of the controls with Street Fighter and I said “Okay, let’s get more people to enjoy this kind of a game.”
