Ono discusses rival scenes and teamwork in Street Fighter X Tekken

Ono discusses rival scenes and teamwork in Street Fighter X Tekken Game Revolution caught up with Ono to ask him questions about Street Fighter X Tekken.

Game Revolution doesn't cover many new bases, but Ono does discuss what you have to do to get some rival scenes and compares the team chemistry of the game to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Hit up GR to get the full interview.

So does that mean there are specific character rivals between the franchises?

YO: Yeah, as you play through the Arcade Mode, you’ll run into something called the Rival Battle, and if you play as the official tag partners that we’ve set up, for example Ryu and Ken, eventually you’ll run into a rival battle with Kazuya and Nina who are there to stop you. And Nina will be like, “Oh, do we really have to fight these poor-looking guys who don’t wear shoes?” And Kazuya’s like, “Yeah, we’ve got to beat them up.” So there are scenes like that that flesh out the relationships between rivals.

And there’s a lot of variety—that’s kind of a serious one, with Ryu and Kazuya and Nina and Ken going at it—but there are also really light-hearted Rival Battles as well, so we’d like fans to play through the story and just have fun finding out about all those relationships between the characters.

How much communication do the developers of this game have with Namco?

YO: As I mentioned before, in the beginning when we were trying to figure out how to transplant the characters into the game, we did contact Namco on a frequent basis to get advice. But once they told us that we had the freedom to do with the characters what we wanted, we decided we could just meet up whenever we would have dinner together or something, but other than that we’d just make the game and just show them later. So every time I’d go over to their offices and meet up with the Tekken team, I’d bring a new build of the game with me, we’d play around, and then go eat dinner. So it was more like showing them progress on the game rather than getting their feedback consistently.

For this past year in particular, there were probably times when the Tekken team found out about characters through websites and things like that, not even us telling them directly. And then they would call us after reading the news on websites and say, “Hey, I want to play as that character! Can you bring a new version of the rom over?”

Daigo's Ryu vs. Inco's Rufus & shinochan's Oni in Endless Battle

Daigo has reappeared online in Endless Battles on SSF4 AE 2012. Ov3rheadGreg has captured footage from the nicovideo live streams of these players so that we could see Daigo's Ryu in action.

While there was some footage of Topanga out in the wild with Daigo's Ryu, these videos give a very extensive look at the skills of all the players involved. The quality is low but still very watchable.

Tekken X Street Fighter could have 6-button system, 1 versus 1

Tekken X Street Fighter could have 6-button system, 1 versus 1 Harada was answering fan questions on Twitter and being his usual self when he started dropping more hints about the direction that Tekken X Street Fighter could go.

What you thinking about fighting system for TxSF? Is it going to be tag-team only, like SFxTK? - GreatKungLao

Harada: Considering 1 vs 1.

Will Street Fighter characters run on a 6 button or 4 button control scheme? - WingedAngelPit

Harada: I'll test 6 button system.

What would you like to see from Tekken X Street Fighter when it comes to gameplay systems and their respective configurations?

Tip submitted by Goodbye18000 who asked the question about buttons.

Sven comments on widescreen UI concept, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's sales

A little ways back we posted a concept user interface a reader created for Street Fighter Alpha 2 that took advantage of the widescreen format by moving around the lifebars, super meter and other things to the sides of the screen.

Capcom's Christian Svensson responded to the concept piece on the Unity Boards a little ways back. He also delves into UMvC3 on the PC and that title's sales performance on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

I did this in Photoshop. What do you think? — Monkey

Svensson: An interesting concept, and personally I like it.

But let me turn this around and ask a few questions.

My presumption is that more casual or new players to the series are going to want full screen (no black bars at all), which means, zoom & crop or stretch in some form with bars at the top. This is usually why we have it as the default in things like HD Remix, etc. Also, hardcore players know about other options and know how to put it into the 4:3 modes that they want (whereas the same can't necessarily be said about new players/more casual players).

Hardcore players are used to the bars where they always were. Yes, those guys won't play zoomed or stretched, but will likely want the bars where they were because they're used to gauging their play around proportionally perfect gauges as compared to the original.

So if either scenario caters to one audience or the other what segment of the audience would this layout be for?
