Street Fighter 3 Online Edition's producer talks shop

Street Fighter 3 Online Edition's producer talks shop Derek Neal, the producer for Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition, shared a lot of details about what additional things the re-release has to offer this afternoon at E3 2011.

This article mostly fleshes out the feature list for the game, how certain things work and what to expect from the title. Topics range from the group replay feature to adding a random select option on the character select screen.

Gameplay details and general info

• This game is more arcade perfect than any console port of SF3 3s to date.

• Capcom said the GGPO experience with the console port is better than how GGPO played on the PC. Apparently they dialed in some of the settings a bit.

• There is a DLC (Downloadable Content) section, but Capcom couldn't talk about it yet.

• Gill is still playable, but he's an unlockable character. He's not available in any kind of ranked or tournament modes, though.

Street Fighter 3 3s Online Edition impressions and preview

Street Fighter 3 3s Online Edition impressions and preview DMAmul was kind enough to type up his impressions of Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition after checking it out at E3 2011. He gives a rundown of some of the new features the game offers, and a few other details as well.

• There is a trial/challenges mode just like SF4. They have a basic and expert parrying mode, and then set of trials for each character just like SF4. I saw the producer of 3s online going through a bunch with Akuma, and they get pretty hardcore as you go further into the game.

• One of the parry challenges on expert was EVO MOMENT #37, Daigo vs. Justin. Chun-Li against Ken, on Ken's stage... exactly the same setup. You have to parry all of Chun's attacks and then hit the same combo as Daigo did (Jumping Hard Kick, Crouching Medium Kick, Shoryuken, Cancel into Super).

• Ton of screen options: There was a smoothed filter, no filter, and you could even turn on scanlines. There was also a stretched mode which didn't look that great, but a widescreen mode which retains the look of the game while giving you more screen real estate to look at.

• You've seen the challenges and achievements that are on the left and right side of the game screen - when you complete these you earn points to unlock a ton of stuff, character art, remixed tracks, etc.

• GGPO - 8 player quarter match!

This clip goes over some of the mechanics in the game he picked up on while playing, all of which could or could not be completely accurate, and of course could change over time, as SFxT is still in a very early state.
