Capcom confirms post-launch tournament mode for Street Fighter X Tekken

Capcom confirms post-launch tournament mode for Street Fighter X Tekken Eurogamer has managed to get some more Street Fighter X Tekken information from Yoshinori Ono while he was in Madrid. In it, he confirms the existence of a post-launch tournament support mode that will alleviate concerns about the gem system.

Ono also talks about the controversial DLC gems, saying they're be listening to for community feedback when it comes to their release. Snippets of the article can be seen below.

Capcom has confirmed plans to release a free, post-launch patch that adds a tournament support mode to upcoming fighting game Street Fighter x Tekken.

While Capcom is yet to finalise the details of what the mode will actually do, it is designed to alleviate fan concern over the controversial gem system - and how it will impact tournaments.

"We know a lot of players are worried that with the gem system tournaments will be harder to run," Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono told Eurogamer.

"We know they take a lot of time. A lot of players were saying, 'I have to do button checks. Do I have to do a gem check now before a match?' With regards to that we plan to release a free post-launch tournament support mode."

Meanwhile, the enthusiastic Japanese developer was keen to stress that the gem system - 57 gems will be included on the disc with others supplied as pre-order bonuses - has been misunderstood by much of the fighting game community.

"In terms of DLC gems, we don't have any set plans on selling gems like this or like that," Ono said. "We're waiting to see what the user reaction is first, because we think a lot of users still don't understand the gem system completely.

"They're not power-up items. That's not how we see them. We put gems into the game which are default. As long as you have these default ones you'll be fine. If you want to get more gems down the road from the pre-order bonuses, you can definitely do that, but it doesn't make you stronger, it doesn't make you a better player, it doesn't mean you'll have an advantage.

Capcom promised to patch the game post-launch should the community feel a gem is too strong or the balance is suffering.

Leave some feedback about the introduction of this mode.

Seth: No DLC planned for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 beyond costumes, Magneto note

Seth: No DLC planned for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 beyond costumes, Magneto note There are no plans currently for additional DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, according to Seth Killian. While things can change, as the Street Fighter 4 series picked up some updates even after Capcom said they were finished with it, this is unfortunate news for fans hoping there was something in the works for the immediate future.

Killian also offered an update on the status of Magneto's alt. outfit.

I'd love for this not to be the end of UMvC3 and not just the costumes, but a few new characters. Stages don't matter and the new costumes are great but it's all the same characters. Any DLC besides that? — Terrence

Seth Killian: Hey, unfortunately there are still no plans for UMVC3 DLC beyond the costumes.

Is Magneto going to be getting a replacement alt. for UMvC3, or is he going without a costume? — LordProsper

Seth Killian: At this time there hasn't been a chance to replace the removed costume with another yet. May be revisited in the future, but for now, he goes without.

Tip from Boba, posts from the Capcom-Unity forums.

Street Fighter X Tekken on Xbox 360 could have had Master Chief and Marcus Fenix

Street Fighter X Tekken on Xbox 360 could have had Master Chief and Marcus Fenix The Xbox 360 version of Street Fighter X Tekken will not be getting any exclusive characters, but they could have potentially picked up Master Chief (Halo) and Marcus Fenix (Gears of War), if negotiations were successful with Microsoft.

Street Fighter series producer, Yoshinori Ono, had this to say on the subject.

"We do have the exclusive characters for the Sony platform. We have Cole, the two Sony cats, Kuro and Toro. But basically for the Xbox 360, we were in discussions with them (Microsoft) for which character to put in as an exclusive, but we weren't able to decide on a character because of differences in timing and things like that. So unfortunately for Street Fighter X Tekken, only the PlayStation family will be getting the exclusive characters, but it's something we wish could have happened. It's just too bad, basically.

"In terms of characters we wish we could have put in the game, Master Chief or Marcus Fenix from Gears of War would have been really cool, but it was just really difficult. We have Cole from inFamous on PS3, which is really cool, but that's just the way it turned out."

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 PS Vita replays with hitbox viewing

Gamefreek345 has sent in some PlayStation Vita replays for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 with hitboxes enabled as the fight goes on.

Some of the more notable hitboxes in the game are listed below.
  • Wolverine doesn't appear to have a hurtbox on his leg when he does his dive kick. The same goes for Wesker and his jumping S.
  • Dr. Doom's standing S has a massive hitbox and he crouches so low it looks like it can be used as an anti-air.
  • Hulk's standing H hitbox isn't too large, rather it's the space that it covers that makes the move so dangerous.
  • Nemesis's jumping H "sea urchin" has an unbelievable hitbox.
  • X-23's standing and crouching normals have very tiny hitboxes but it doesn't seem to hurt their effectiveness.
  • Similar to Street Fighter 4, the legs of characters are fully invincible upon a jump.
  • Frank West's shopping cart assist hitbox is actually low to the ground, meaning it should be easy to jump and hit Frank if you can guess his entrance.

The rest of the matches are after the jump.
