Requests for more Street Fighter 4 updates prompting talks at Capcom

Requests for more Street Fighter 4 updates prompting talks at Capcom Capcom is internally discussing the idea of keeping the Street Fighter 4 series going, after being prompted by fan requests for additional updates.

Keep in mind discussions may not lead to anything, as the company has to figure if it'll make sense going forward. Still, it's nice to know that future updates are at least being considered after they said that SSF4 Arcade Edition would end the series.

Yoshinori Ono added a bit of fuel to this fire the other day when he said if he had a chance, he'd continue rebalancing the game.

Christian Svensson also made a number of other posts recently on the Unity Boards, mostly dealing with the PC release of the game. First up is the comment about the potential updates though, followed by everything else.

Will you continue to do Street Fighter 4 updates? — Slashy

Svensson: There's nothing currently under way, but the repeated requests for "more" is prompting some discussion between Yoshinori Ono, Seth Killian, Michael P. and I.

What's the release date for Europe?

Svensson: I believe the target SSFIV:AE PC release date for Europe is July 8th. For NALA it is July 5th, just a few days earlier.

I hope I can play the PC version without the DVD because I hate swapping discs. — Daniel

Svensson: There's no DVD disc check, just FYI.

GamesRadar pegs Street Fighter 3 Online Edition's release date as Aug. 26

GamesRadar pegs Street Fighter 3 Online Edition's release date as Aug. 26 GamesRadar put up a preview of Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition, which is written from a more causal player's perspective, so there isn't anything in the way of new information, except at the end, they mention the game's release date as being August 26, 2011.

Capcom hasn't pegged an official release date for the game yet, except by saying it'd be summer 2011, but Ono added that it would be out after Street Fighter 4 Volt is released for the iPhone.

GamesRadar is a major website, but it's still possible this information is inaccurate, as it hasn't been officially confirmed yet, so take it how you may. Typically, XBLA and PSN games are released on Tuesday, and August 26, 2011 is a Friday.

Ono talks briefly about rebalancing Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition

Ono talks briefly about rebalancing Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition Yoshinori Ono responded to a few members of the community that think Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition should be further rebalanced. Some of the things Ono says are... difficult to make out, but here are his remarks, regardless.

Will there be a patch to rebalance God Yun in SSF4AE. Please Ono, we beg you! — Ganem19

Ono: If can I have chance, I'll be continue tuning. ;)

I think we would all like annual rebalance of SSF4 Arcade Edition via DLC. — FletcherBentley

Ono: It's so fast. I can't get approval from official Capcom. ;D

Why do you need approval to fix a game you released with imbalance? — Bfire0

Ono: I don't have Research and Development cost (money)... ;(

The problem isn't that Yun/Yang are too good it's that most of the cast got nerfed too much from SF4 -> Super -> AE! — tempusrob.

Ono: I try to catch up some opinion because I think Tool is everyone's.

Svensson takes on Street Fighter 3 Online Edition fan questions

Svensson takes on Street Fighter 3 Online Edition fan questions Capcom's Christian Svensson answered a TON of questions on the Unity Boards concerning the upcoming release of Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition.

The posts are spread across many different subjects, ranging from the YouTube upload feature, to GGPO spectator lag. Lots of good stuff in here, hit the jump to see everything.

When will we hear more about the YouTube upload feature?

Svensson: The answer to that question gives away a bit more about how the YouTube functionality works than I'm willing to say right now.

I'm going to have to beg for patience. We'll give a full rundown closer to Comic-Con or EVO.

And to be clear, our YouTube functionality isn't something facilitated by the Xbox libraries. This is our own implementation. As such, Microsoft's recent YouTube announcement has no bearing on our timing.

Are the stages and the music from the first two games going to make it as free DLC? — Crazy-Legs

Svensson: Not discussing DLC until after launch.

The version of SFIII OE that was shown at E3, was that the final version, or is there still more work to be done?

Svensson: It's a release candidate. Can't say final until it's approved by Sony/MS in each territory. It's in submission now.

Interviews with DMG's PR Balrog, Perfect Legend and AtroCity

Interviews with DMG's PR Balrog, Perfect Legend and AtroCity Dominion Method Gaming posted interviews with three of their team members recently. PR Balrog, the newest addition Perfect Legend and AtroCity all got in some time with Jason24cf to talk about how things are going. Topics range from who PR Balrog is picking up as a secondary character in AE, to Perfect Legend's experiences playing against Tokido. Here's a snip from one of the articles.

Jason24cf: You have been on a tear recently, you won Final Round, and you placed 2nd at Power Up and you just finished 3rd at UGFT #7 in SSFIV. With AE dropping in a few days do you think your play will change with Balrog changes and if so how would you mix it up?

PR Balrog: I’m going to keep using Balrog at the start mostly because I still think he’s strong but not as good as he was before. I’m already decided on who am I gonna play as my secondary if I have to. Its going to be Yang and its just because I like his st. jab (brings back memories) but I’m gonna have to see how can I adjust myself to dive kicks, but all in all I think I’ll be fine since his play style is patient rush down not going all out.

Jason24cf: Also SF is not your only specialty you also place 5th in MvC3 consistently as well as just finishing 2nd in MK9 at UGFT#7. How much time do you put into each game to practice?

PR Balrog: Honestly I don’t play ssf4 anymore that’s of course until AE comes out and that’s because here in Puerto Rico no one plays super anymore they all play MvC3. And with MK9 only a handful of people play it, so almost all of my time goes into training mode in those 2 games and just use basic strategies against people and I guess its working for now haha.
