FocusAttack talks Super Street Fighter 4 balance tweaks with Seth Killian

FocusAttack captured Seth Killian for a brief interview at New York Comic-Con to discuss some of the balance tweaks they're looking at for Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition.

Thanks to Mortons for the tip.

Ode to the 2-hit combo, throwback videos

A series of videos that premiered back at EVO 2004 were uploaded in HD by Maj, dedicated to the art of the 2-hit combo.

These feature a lot of old school fighting games, and even though the consecutive hit tally doesn't go up very far, these movies are stylish and fun to watch.

Super Street Fighter 4 AE DLC wasn't approved, new project in the works

Super Street Fighter 4 AE DLC wasn't approved, new project in the works Yoshinori Ono Tweeted that the Arcade Edition DLC package he pitched to Capcom USA's offices wasn't approved, but went on to add that he has a new project in the works.

A few other notes were made about the DLC package as well.

So what happened with the Arcade Edition DLC characters proposal Ono-san?

Ono: I couldn't got approval from [upper level staff], but I'll continue [the] proposal!!

Good luck on getting your bosses to approve DLC.

Ono: Thanks. So, I got approval from my boss, Keiji Inafune, but I can't [get] it from [upper level staff]. ;(

My hype died! I give up on wishing for Arcade Edition DLC for SSF4 since you didn't got approval! =(

Ono: I'm not giving up yet. ;D

Yoshinori also stated that he's started a new project and commented on and where his main focus lies.

Ono: I'll [get] back to [my] desk and enter Meeting for New Proje... Oops!! See you later. ;D

I bet his next project is an educational game and not DarkStalkers. It makes me angry.

Ono: Yeah, everybody may be angry. ;P

I want to see another SNK vs. Capcom! Do you have plans for that?

Ono: Umm, above everything, [I'm concentrating on] making Street Fighter X Tekken.

While it's a bit of a surprise that Arcade Edition DLC wasn't approved by upper level staff at Capcom, Inafune was at least board, and it may just mean that the proposal needs to be altered a bit to get full approval. It definitely sounds like Ono hasn't given up hope.

EuroGamer interviews Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer, Ryota Niitsuma

EuroGamer interviews Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer, Ryota Niitsuma has a two page interview with Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer, Ryota Niitsuma.

This starts off by recapping some things you've probably heard before, like the simple control system and how launchers work, but it gets into a bit of new territory as well, stating that the lobby system will be different than Street Fighter 4 and that there will be a unique selling point for the online gamers.

All in all, a solid read. Here's a snip.

Eurogamer: How do you go about balancing the superhero characters, many of whom are insanely powerful, so that they are not overpowered versus the Capcom characters?

Ryota Niitsuma: Yeah, it's a good question. When you think about it, when you're reading the character descriptions or if you know everything about the characters and their settings - even Ryu, he may be able to launch a hadoken, but he's only a mere mortal against the Marvel characters.

Having said that, we have to incorporate all the characters and balance them up. I started off thinking about deleting all the superheroes' natural powers to start with and picking up any powers I can incorporate into the game to balance it out.

Some of the characters are immortal. They can live forever. You have to take it as it is, you know what I mean? Otherwise the game wouldn't exist.

Eurogamer: Which character has proved to be the most difficult to balance?

Ryota Niitsuma: Hulk and Thor, they are huge in size. In comparison to those guys – we're just talking about the revealed characters at the moment – Amaterasu from Okami?, he's only about this height [lowers hand to the floor].

So against Hulk it's quite difficult to ensure the animation of the movement and effects are right. That was quite difficult to balance up.
