Capcom, Sony working on Street Fighter X Tekken feature

Capcom, Sony working on Street Fighter X Tekken feature A new article about Street Fighter X Tekken was picked up by AndriaSang.com. It talks about how Capcom might announce special plans for the game at TGS (Tokyo Game Show), specifically for the Sony Vita portable.

This is a pretty interesting read, as it talks about Capcom's future plans and how some of the stuff at E3 worked, plus Ono said there could be other special characters besides Cole. Here's a snip.

The PlayStation Vita prototype build of the game uses almost the exact same model and bone data as the PS3 version, Ono revealed. The only differences are in resolution.

Many of the other PlayStation Vita games shown at E3 were said to be launch titles for the system. Capcom would make no such announcement for the Vita version of SF x Tekken for two reasons. First, the Vita version has not reached the state where it is satisfactory as a fighting game. Second, it does not yet have the special feature that will be shown (hopefully) at TGS.

Outside of Cole, Capcom announced four new SF x Tekken characters at E3, but few were surprised because the identities had been guessed from the four teaser videos that had been released in the weeks prior to the show. Ono promised another major announcement for San Diego's Comic Con event, but this time he promised that the teaser video would be extremely tough. He suggested that players attempt to guess the announcement by going through the video frame by frame.

A partial frame-by-frame analysis of the E3 trailer Capcom put out for SFxT was done here with the community's help, and many concluded that Lili, Dhalsim, Asuka and Steve would be added to the lineup based on the visual data collected.

Capcom's fighter lineup includes other franchises besides SF

Capcom's fighter lineup includes other franchises besides SF Capcom's Christian Svensson had a dialogue with the fans at E3 2011 and a transcript of the notable details for fighting game fans has been compiled below.

Items include that Street Fighter won't be the only franchise Capcom touches with their future fighting games, a 4th Strike for SF3 is unlikely and the challenge for a PC release of Online Edition is overcoming piracy.

• Capcom said their robust fighting game lineup in the future will of course include Street Fighter (likely referring to SFxT), but it will also include other franchises as well. This was the response when asked about Darkstalkers. Definitely doesn't confirm a Darkstalkers game, but other franchises are definitely coming for their fighting game lineups.

• Christian said Capcom isn't likely to continue the Street Fighter 3 series, a 4th Strike, as SF4 has been the focus, but he'll never say never. He did say again, Capcom has a very robust fighting game lineup planned, though.

• Svensson said he hit various forums a lot for what they ended up putting in Street Fighter 3 Online Edition. Citing again that your feedback DOES matter.

• SF3 OE on the PC hasn't been ruled out, but Svensson said the specific challenge there is overcoming the pirating on that platform, as people have been playing it for free for a long time.

Juicy Bits podcast returns with new flavor - Season 2 Ep. #1

Juicy Bits podcast returns with new flavor - Season 2 Ep. #1 BLG's Eric "Juicebox" Albino has returned from a hiatus with a new episode of his Juicy Bits podcast. There's a different approach from the last time we heard from Juicebox, here's a rundown.

Eric 'BLG Juicebox' Albino is back with Season 2 of Juicy Bits with Episode 1 entitled "Change of Direction"!

As Juicebox describes in his podcast, Season 1 was essentially a Street Fighter 101, breaking down SSFIV into its base mechanics and combining those mechanics to be the best player possible. In Season 2, you can expect more of a 'Study Hall' feel, where Juicebox will be brining in guests from the professional gaming community to talk about strategy, events, etc...

Additionally this time around, the podcast will be shifting it's primary focus from SSFIV to include other fighting games such as MvC3, MK9, and SSFIV AE. Juice wants to share his learning experience in these new games with his listeners, and welcomes feedback from the community to make each podcast as inclusive and informative as possible.

As always, if you have any questions or comments for Juicebox, you can contact him directly at juiceboxabel@gmail.com or on Twitter at @JuiceboxAbel.

Mago vs. Poongko the Super Street Fighter 4 AE runback, multiple matches

The other day YogaFlame24 posted a match between Poongko (Seth) and Mago (Fei Long). As it turns out, both players ran a really long set of great Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition matches that were posted up on YouTube by Oota86. Beehol, who sent this in also said that Mago commentated on these matches after the fact, and it's his voice you hear in the video, but unfortunately it's in Japanese.

This is a nearly hour long video, but it showcases two exceptional players going head to head in a fiercely competitive set.

Seth Killian chats up Street Fighter X Tekken with IGN, Jin confirmed?

Seth ran through a Street Fighter X Tekken play session with IGN at E3. This covers a good amount of stuff you've heard before, but Seth offers some other details on the gameplay, which is nice.

At the 3:24 mark, it sounds like Seth confirms that Jin is in the game, saying how he Kazuyu and Nina can also use the 4 button play style.

Topics also include how the title came about, that the Tekken guys have great in your face pressure, but don't do so well from all the way across the screen, supers don't use double motions now, you just use 3x Punches or Kicks, etc.

It's nearly an 8 minute piece, but it's a good one if you don't mind sitting through some redundant information.

Tip from Saiferoth and Firecotton.
