Community news roundup for August 15th

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • August 15, 2010 at 11:14 p.m. PDT
Community news roundup for August 15th Here's a look at some of the things happening around the Capcom fighting game community.

Yoshinori Ono ruled out storylines and anime intros for Super Street Fighter 4 arcade's new cast members, stating that they lack the storage on that platform to do so. Also, apparently they can't bring back the vanilla Street Fighter 4 announcer because they can't find him.

• Older, but interesting video showing Zangief's walk forward Ultra utilizing input leniency.

• In a blog entry a member of the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 team said they're prepping another promotional video for the game and they might announce new characters at GamesCom. Also, the Marvel characters have been winning in most of the gameplay clips because the Capcom side lacks win poses.

Street Fighter themed Pringles cans over on Capcom-Unity.

• BossLogic did some Nike shoes Street Fighter designs.

So no arcade intros or outros for the new characters, huh?
Wonder if they'll get some when they're released on console SSF4, or if they'll remain non-canon to SF4.
If they're non-canon characters, then supposedly they might be able to put in characters that shouldn't be playable because of storyline issues, like the oft-requested Charlie (ugh)

@BlackBlazeQ

I laughed when I read that. It's not a typo, that's what Ono said, they can't find the guy.

Gambit is on the street fighter themed pringles can. Is that a sneaky way of announcing him for MvC3?

Can't Capcom just recycle the Vanilla Street Fighter IV Announcer's Voice Clips into Super Street Fighter IV?

You people do know that the pringles don't confirm anything right. They said that not all characters that appear in the game are playable this could just be a promotion

THE Pringles ARE FAN MADE FOR A KOTAKU CONTEST THEY'RE NOT IN THE GAME(officially yet)

that's fun though "we would ask him back...if we could find him" but I'm seriously wondering where the f*** that guy went

Wow... that's a ton of excuses by Ono. Just SAY it costs too much to do anime intros etc, don't give us some crap about storage issues.

Who the Heck would want the "old announcer" back for SSFIV arcade? Really though who so I can shoot him?

People never learn.

Zeidust said on August 16, 2010 at 7:52 p.m.

They should just get rid of all the anime sequences and endings in SSF4, since the animation was terrible and story line, ridiculous. The game is just not Canon to me.

Oh and I would pick Remy of Charlie any day.

Ex_Ein said on August 16, 2010 at 9:58 p.m.

Put_Elena_in_SF they're talking about the arcade version only so STFU!

cadnexus said on August 16, 2010 at 11:04 p.m.

Are they hinting at Gambit and Ken to be in Marvel vs Capcom 3? These Pringles are not Street Fighter feature or themed. The cans are themed Marvel vs Capcom 3!
