Ono talks about where the Street Fighter franchise is headed

Ono offered some enlightening details about the future of the Street Fighter franchise in an interview with ScrewAttack, saying that Capcom doesn't want to wait like they did previously with SF4 before releasing Street Fighter 5 and 6. He also said they want to continue updating their older titles and rebalancing so people can keep playing them.

Yoshinori talked about splitting up the franchise, with one series more dedicated to the hardcore players and another that would cater more to the casual crowd. Ideally, they'd find a way to merge both, but for right now, heading off in different directions makes more sense.

Also, Ono discusses how the player point and battle point system in SF4 didn't do a good enough job of giving new players a chance to win online, and that having something more like a golf handicap that gives new players a slight advantage over experienced competitors could work.

This is a very interesting video, as Ono is talking about what we might see in upcoming fighting games from Capcom. You should watch this.

What do you think of Ono's ideas on the future of Street Fighter? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

Seth Killian, Derek Neal demo Street Fighter 3 Online Edition for GameSpot

GameSpot got a whopping 30+ minute demo of Street Fighter 3 Third Strike from Capcom's Seth Killian and Derek Neal.

Derek plays on the stick in the background and while Seth is dishing the knowledge, you get to see a lot of the game's modes and what is has to offer. Notable stuff includes:

• The Battle log saves the last 100 matches.

• You get to see the Handicap Trials, including one where your character starts with almost no health.

• Video of the combo trials are included, and they work a lot like the ones in the SF4 series.

• The Save State feature is demoed, where if there's a certain set of circumstances you want to flash back to, like Ryu being an inch off the ground, you can jump right back to that state with the touch of a button over and over again.

This of course recaps a lot of previously covered ground, but if you're hyped about the game and it's various modes, it's a good way to see things in action before its released.

Tip from Rafael2487.
