Ono preparing for 'new something', following up on modifications to Street Fighter X Tekken

Ono preparing for 'new something', following up on modifications to Street Fighter X Tekken Proceed with a bit of caution here, as Ono's tweets can't always be taken directly at face value, but he recently spoke on Twitter that he visited Taipei, in Taiwan, and is making a presentation for something new, and is also following up on modifications to Street Fighter X Tekken.

Christian Svensson covered who owns the rights to Karin and the sales numbers for SFxT, in this recap of posts from Capcom employees.

Ono: I visited at Taipei just now. I'll make preparation for new something... So, we're follow up about making modify for Street Fighter X Tekken.

I actually believe that the Karin character is owned 100% by Capcom, they just didn't use her lately. — Shed a Ninja

Svensson: I would need to check with legal but I believe this is true in Karin's case. A better place to ask this question would be directly to Ono via Twitter as he may have better insights.

[Editor's note: Ono has said previously that Karin's copyright is actually owned by a Manga artist, but that doesn't necessarily stop them from using her, but that the situation becomes difficult contractually.]

Street Fighter X Tekken had what appears to be a somewhat bumpy start according to media create, NPD, and chart track sales. Overall estimates put sales between 500k and 650k across both platforms in all 3 regions combined. Given the nature of fighting games as a more niche market title, but also faced with the fact it is a cross over title using two of the biggest fighting game franchises. Was Capcom able to meet its projections? — Eternal

Svensson: Guys, I can't comment on sales but I will say that you're looking at the wrong metric for how we book revenue.

Desk shows off some Cerebella advanced run combos

Today Desk has uploaded a new Skullgirls video featuring Cerebella. This video is all about some of her advanced run stop combos that do a ton of damage.

Cerebella's run is performed by charging back then hitting forward plus any kick, to stop you hit LK. After cancelling it from a st.HP, the jab links are pretty easy with a bit of practice but cr.LK is a little tougher and st.LK is the most difficult.

Check out the video description for a transcript.

OffDaCh3n3y's Street Fighter X Tekken Hugo write up wins April guide contest

OffDaCh3n3y's Street Fighter X Tekken Hugo write up wins April guide contest The latest winner of the Eventhubs forums guide contest is OffDaCh3n3y. He will be awarded this month's $50 for his Street Fighter X Tekken Hugo guide.

OffDaCh3n3y has written up an excellent guide on the German wrestler. This guide breaks down each of Hugo's moves with frame data, damage and a special note about each one. He also covers many effective combos including those when Hugo is tagged in or out. There is a lot of ground covered here so if you are interested in picking up Hugo in Street Fighter X Tekken, this is definitely a great place to start.

If you are interested in writing a guide for next month's contest or you're just looking for a place to level up and gather information, visit the forums section here on the site.

All games are eligible for this prize and this contest is held monthly.

Here's a piece from OffDaCh3n3y's guide.


Hugo's size, range, vitality, and high damage without the need of meter allows Hugo to fit with almost any character as a point or an anchor. Hugo can take a lot of punishment before needing to tag out and can just as effectively build meter from his short or extended damage combos. However because of his poor mobility and large size with the lack of a reliable meterless anti-air leaves him at a disadvantage against most of the more frequently used characters (notable examples include Ryu, Rolento, Kazuya, Juri, Heihachi) the threat of being freely crossed up on and taking away his main way of advancement (jumping) can be frustrating. So a character with more mobility, an effective AA, or ways to start off combos work best with Hugo. A big advantage of Hugo is also being able to deal an easy 300-400 damage (depending on how much meter you want to use) after nearly any tag in makes Hugo a threat even when he is inactive.
