Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Street Fighter X Tekken announcements at TGS, more changes for Super Street Fighter 4 AE v2012?

Street Fighter X Tekken announcements at TGS, more changes for Super Street Fighter 4 AE v2012? We'll be getting new details about Street Fighter X Tekken — including new character announcements — at this year's Tokyo Game Show, which runs from Sept. 15 - 18. If Capcom stays true to form, we should also get to see more stuff about Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 there as well.

Yoshinori Ono said that fans will get a new trailer for Street Fighter X Tekken at TGS, so mark your calendars.

Also, Seth Killian mentioned that there are some surprises in store at the Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 location tests being held in Japan. He made this statement prior to the new balance changes for Cody, Guy and Yang surfacing, but it's still possible there's other stuff that wasn't talked about in the development blogs.

Is that all the updates for those fighters or are there more changes to come for them? — C0r33

Seth Killian: I think the SSFIV AE 2012 live location tests may have some surprises still in store.

Updated: YouTube patch for XBL Street Fighter 3 OE, future patch fix notes

Updated: YouTube patch for XBL Street Fighter 3 OE, future patch fix notes Updated: SF3 Online Edition's producer, Derek Neal, posted some future patch notes on Capcom-Unity.

We’re still experiencing some occasional hiccoughs with the XLSP server, so the service might go down intermittently. But it’s up right now, and you can see the videos people have been uploading here:

Upcoming: we have a fix for both the “100 billion % disconnect rate” issue, and the “it takes a long time to get in a ranked match” issue. These fixes, as well as a few more (an issue with Hugo’s trial #2, a stun exploit in trials, etc.), will be making it into our next patch. We will also be raising the online level cap in that patch.

Early next week we should have a better idea of the "go live" date for that update after we submit to Sony and Microsoft.

Further downstream, we’re looking at all of your feedback for potential future updates (beyond the fixes in this post). So, please bear with us as we continue working to make this game even more awesome!

Earlier: A two megabyte patch for the Xbox 360 release of Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition went live. It added YouTube upload functionality to the game. Here's a link to the official YouTube channel, where your uploads go, which was spotted by Diqbudt.

Also, Event #47 was unlocked for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This is a free unlocked mode, just like the others. Here are the details.

Event mode #22 — Finish arcade mode while your opponent has permanent hyper armor status (final battle excluded).

Titled unlocked: Cunning Old Fox.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Capcom Unity blog discusses Haggar's alternate colors

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Capcom Unity blog discusses Haggar's alternate colors If you'd like to know why certain colors were picked for Haggar in MvC3 and why other colors were placed in UMvC3 for him, then this new blog update from Capcom Unity is for you. Marvel is supposed to have an update discussing Phoenix's new colors on their blog soon as well.

The blog states that this will be updated quite a number of times to cover all of the characters and the reasoning behind their color schemes.

Capcom and Marvel are colloborating over the next few months to bring you the inside scoop about UMvC3--specifically, exactly where all of these new costumes come from. Every character now has 6 default costumes, and the ones that aren't new have either been re-worked or are stunningly perfect to begin with. To begin with, let's look at Haggar.

Haggar first appeared in Final Fight, beating up the Mad Gear gang while sporting dark green pants, a single brown strap, and a mustache so robust it served as deputy mayor for his entire term in office. Like Firebrand, Haggar didn’t have specific alternate costumes within his canonical history, so the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 team was able to explore some original concepts specifically for this game.
