Unused Okami stage theme discovered on Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 disc

Gamespot user Anorhc did the favor of making an awesome jukebox full of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 stage themes in high quality several days ago.

As a bonus for his hard work, he discovered an unused theme that was made for the Okami stage that didn't make it into the game. Give it a listen below.

Ryota Niitsuma revealed a long while back that an Okami stage was planned but then scrapped due to clashes with the art style. It's nice to see that its theme was able to make its way to the public though.

Sven comments on Smash Bros. debate, Akuma Street Fighter X Tekken hint dropped

Sven comments on Smash Bros. debate, Akuma Street Fighter X Tekken hint dropped It's been a long running debate in the fighting game community if the Smash Bros. series is a fighting game, and Capcom vice president, Christian Svensson, weighed in on the subject recently.

Ono drops a quick hint at Akuma being in Street Fighter X Tekken, telling someone who asks him if he'll be in the upcoming title to be patient. Here's the run down.

Do you consider the Smash Bros. series to be a fighting game? This is something that the fighting game community always argues about, so I want to know your personal opinion on this. — Greg

Svensson: I'm not sure how it couldn't be considered a fighting game for all of the reasons raised above. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck.

That said, whether it makes for good fodder for a competitive scene, that's not anyone else's place to say other than the players that play it themselves.

So stoked I get to keep my SSF4 main.... Akuma next please? — Matthewcrowe666

Ono: Just be patient. He is hole somewhere in anytime... ;P

What do you guys think? Do you feel Svensson's description of the Smash Bros. series is pretty accurate? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

Hishou Sagat vs. Toruneko Rufus at A-cho with extra gameplay

A-cho Game Center has uploaded a very long set between Hishou's Sagat and Toruneko's Rufus on their channel. They also include extra matches from Katsudi's Cammy (around the 1:00:00 mark) and Chiroru's Juri (near the 1:15:00 mark).

Hishou shows just how difficult it is for Rufus to break through Sagat's fireball and zoning game in this set, often making it impossible outside of guessing to break through. If you didn't know, Toruneko is the #1 BP ranked Rufus in Japan and Hishou is #2 ranked. Do these matches make a statement on the matchup?
