Ono: Announcing Street Fighter as early game on the PS4 would be restrictive, experience we gain from Deep Down will put us in a better position

Ono: Announcing Street Fighter as early game on the PS4 would be restrictive, experience we gain from Deep Down will put us in a better position When Capcom's Yoshinori Ono took the stage at the PlayStation 4 press conference a few weeks back many people thought a new Street Fighter title would be announced, but Ono quickly stomped down that assumption by saying he wasn't there to talk about the franchise he's best known for working on.

A little while later, Ono told MCV that the reason Capcom chose a new brand (Deep Down) instead of an established franchise like Street Fighter or Resident Evil was because of consumer expectations, saying that, "We wanted to be free to utilize the PS4's hardware capabilities and unique services without the constraints of working within an existing IP."

All isn't lost though, as Yoshinori noted that the development experience they gain from this title will put them in a better spot to bring their existing franchises to the new hardware, and do a better job taking advantage of the features and services they offer.

"Of course, the development experience we gain will put us in an even better position to bring our existing series to the console in a way that takes full advantage of its hardware and services."

How much time will pass before Capcom puts the latest iteration of Street Fighter out on a next generation console is up for debate, but it's good to know Ono is still very much aware of the fan demand and expectations surrounding the title.

Daigo and Sako square off in Darkstalkers Resurrection - Strategies and moves for B.B. Hood, Jedah and Pyron

Capcom's Tomoaki Ayano and top player Nuki conducted a walkthrough of Darkstalkers Resurrection, which also features a casual match between HORI|Sako and MCZ|Daigo Umehara, who are testing the title's online play, even though they're playing in person.

Umehara notes that the title is speedy, without lag, but this match was hosted in Japan, instead of state side, where the connections are known to be considerably better.

You'll notice that the clip is spoken in Japanese, but while the translation ends up being a bit wonky, if you enable the CC option and then use the "translate" beta setting on YouTube, you can get a rough idea of what people are saying in the clip.
Here's a transcript of notable details via the always awesome Beast Note website.

- Capcom producer Ayano and Nuki talk about screen styles that you can choose in the game: Over-the-Shoulder, Retro, Arcade Cabinet, Wide.

- Although it says in the video that Sako is Vampire Savior national No.1, Sako had never won any major individual tournament. His best was top 4 in Tougeki 2004 (according to Famitsu). (He won pre-Tougeki 2004 5 on 5 tournament which is a team tournament.)

- On the other hand, Nuki was actually Vampire Savior national No.2 at Gamest Cup (where he lost to Umehara in the final). (When Gamest Magazine stopped, many staff went with Arcadia Magazine that later organized Tougeki.)

Combofiend and Haunts have also done another entry in their character strategy videos, this time for B.B. Hood, and IGN has new overviews of Jedah and Pyron. Hit the jump to check them all out.
