Ono: Something big coming in two weeks

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • July 12, 2010 at 2:24 a.m. PDT
Ono: Something big coming in two weeks Yoshinori Ono stated at EVO 2010 that he'll be announcing something in two weeks that should get people very excited. He said this new project will be coming in about a year.

Since Ono made this announcement at EVO, it's extremely likely that it's fighting game related and he said previously that Super Street Fighter 4 is nothing compared to what's coming.

He apparently also said that it's not Capcom vs. SNK 3 or a DarkStalkers sequel, though.

During his speech at EVO, Ono went on to add that Street Fighter 4 won't stop — since the arcade version is coming — he paused there, but said he couldn't say any more.

In about two weeks, Comic-Con is taking place, and Ono mentioned he might have a trailer of the game to show at that convention.

I still dread that this might be the SF4 themed motion-based game for Microsoft Kinect and PS Move

I just don't want another Street Fighter 4 edition that would make Super SF4 obsolete. The current game is very balanced.

They would be releasing the SSF4 Turbo. This was what happened before they announced that the SSF4 was in the making. Trust me. You're all gonna be 'hyped' again.

#6 they could go the RE5 Gold route and release both a full physical copy and DLC for SSF IV.

Tekken vs Street Fighter, why else would Harada producer of Tekken try to get him to reveal the trailer earlier when hes from a different company and start joking around with him on stage.

Darkstalkers hd remix lol
Seriously though I wouldn't mind a new darkstalkers game give sf a rest for a few even though it's there money maker I'm sure a decent enough darkstalkers can sell a couple units here and there

Its going to be Namco VS Capcom.

as long as it's not Darkstalkers, Im happy. Disappointed that its not Capcom vs SNK 3 though...

Tekken vs street fighter would be funny. I want to see Jin dodge tatsu's.

djb1ge said on July 12, 2010 at 8:23 a.m.

The fact that he AND Harada-san were on stage together suggests that those Tekken vs. Street Fighter rumors may be true. I personally think that Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is Capcom's biggest announcement in a long, LONG time, so I don't know how Ono-san's gonna top THAT, ESPECIALLY at Comic Con of all places.

I also feel that he's setting himself up for failure like when they announced the secret surprise for owning a copy of Street Fighter IV when getting SUPER. They announced it months in advance & were pretty tight-lipped about it, so expectations were very high. It only ended up being two extra colors for having a Street Fighter IV SAVE, not the actual game. I feel like this scenario is the same. If it's not Tekken vs. Street Fighter, Capcom vs. SNK 3, or Street Fighter V (5), I think we'll be disappointed. Maybe it's Namco X Capcom 2...

#18
halo said on July 12, 2010 at 8:53 a.m.

#17 Namco Vs Capcom happened years ago and it was an RPG. Would be interesting if they could turn it into a fighting game, makes more sense than Tekken vS Capcom...oh and by the way, it would be Tekken vS Street Fighter, not Capcom

#19
VirgoBlu said on July 12, 2010 at 9:14 a.m.

Rival Schools...isn't there some litigation issues with that franchise...it would be some dope ish if that happened. Batsu, Natsu and Roberto FTW!!!

#20
omnipotent said on July 12, 2010 at 9:20 a.m.

easy guess, its either sf vs tekken, sf3 4th impact or just a bunch of new dlc stuff related with the upcoming arcade release.

#21
Creeper said on July 12, 2010 at 10:05 a.m.

I was really really hoping the announcement and trailer was going to debut at EVO. I'm kinda worried about what it actually is, I'm really hyped about it but I don't think Street Fighter vs. Tekken is something I'm going to care about very much. So the future of Super Street Fighter IV separate from this secret project?

#22
Creation_Scapes said on July 12, 2010 at 10:50 a.m.

Tekken and Street Fighter are like Oil and Water, they don't mix.

#23
Baha said on July 12, 2010 at 10:51 a.m.

A new SF-EX obviously! ;
I can't ever see Tekken vs SF ever working, but there is hints to it. But I still doubt it.

#24
KryptonianBaby said on July 12, 2010 at 12:49 p.m.

SF vs SSMB, from the Toybox to the TV. Tabuu looks like seth anyhow.

chrisagent75 said on July 12, 2010 at 1:23 p.m.

It Might be Capcom Fighting Evolution 2 but
it cannot be a Capcom vs.game because they're
already working on Marvel VS. Capcom 3.

Street Fighter Alpha IV. :)

SofBoy said on July 12, 2010 at 1:39 p.m.

i really hope it's not tekken vs. street fighter. what i am truly hoping for is third strike hd remix. with sprites, not 3D. would be SICK.

#28
Jarkyttaa said on July 12, 2010 at 2:17 p.m.

During his speech, Ono said there was a hint in his twitter postings. One of them is the Tekken director with the Blanka doll up in front of his face. However, he posted tons of pictures these last few days, so who knows what it might be.

Tekken Vs. Street Fighter sounds fairly likely though.

Also, 3rd strike HD remix will very very likely never happen.

#29
Lolento said on July 12, 2010 at 2:37 p.m.

@#17 halo
That's Namco X Capcom, and yes, we know about it. We're asking for Namco vs Capcom.

@#28 KryptonianBaby
Super Smash Mothers Brawl?

Dram said on July 12, 2010 at 2:41 p.m.

Street Fighter vs. Street Fighter? Every character in the collect? =P (Dare to dream)

If it's coming out in a year, I would think it's something that is already established, and they are adding content? If it were a new game this would have started 2-3 years ago, and might have had something more concrete via rumors, leaks, ect.

What about an HD remix for all previous SFs in one collection?

#31
mjcd said on July 12, 2010 at 2:56 p.m.

I wanted CAPCOM VS SNK 3
well, I guess it's not happening!!

DISAPPOINTING........

CAPCOM VS SNK 3 PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.......

smashfury said on July 12, 2010 at 3:27 p.m.

after messing with the "I draw up a project proposal since Sunday" pic i noticed that there was some text in japanese and a picture behind the blank page.

i can't read japanese, but maybe someone can make out what it says. but about that picture it looks a bit like nitroman or protoman. ono mentioned that this "mystery" wasn't supposed to be a fighting game and that it was supposed to be "bigger than ssf4". the only game series that comes to my mind that capcom has that can even come close to being bigger than street fighter is megaman.

coincidentally keiji inafune (lead artist of the megaman series) is supposed to be at comic con, the event ono said that announcement of the mystery was to be made at. along with that and the recent trademarking of "Mega Man Universe" as a "computer game software" it leads me to believe that its going to be somesort of pc megaman game. maybe an MMO?

As 100% unlikely as it seems, I could be down with a Megaman Legends-style MMO.

Triforce said on July 12, 2010 at 4:53 p.m.

Ono is as bad a damn tease in life as he is online. >:-(

Thanks for the extra bits. I came in late when he was speaking so I did not catch him saying it has nothing to do with Darkstalkers or CVS3-glad to hear. It's gotta be SSF4 related news. :-)

#37
pelofino said on July 12, 2010 at 5:08 p.m.

Ok itz either Strider 3, Capcom fighting allstar,
Final fight 4, plasma sword, Rebirth of Megaman for Ps3 and xbox 360, Tekken vs Street fighter (which will really sukx)or Street Fighter 3rd strike as a DLC for PSN and Xbox Live

#38
OmegaZero said on July 12, 2010 at 5:13 p.m.

capcom should stop on doing those remake's of street fighter, and with remakes i mean street fighter 4, capcom stop been so foolish and give people what they really want, we need MEGAMAN X9 THE ELF WARS, for heaven sake make it happen dammit

#39
Jarkyttaa said on July 12, 2010 at 5:24 p.m.

1.) We know for a fact that SSFIV is the last game in the SFIV series. It may be amended with DLC, but Capcom has been point-blank and blunt (which is rare for Capcom) that there will be no more SFIV games after Super.

2.) According to Ono's speech, there will be a project announcement and a SSFIV announcement, at the least.

3.) It's impossible to tell what hints could be contained in his tweets, but a SF vs. Tekken or CvN game aren't impossible at all, especially considering earlier rumors.

4.) We know that DLC characters are very likely, and he mentioned in his speech that the arcade release of SSFIV is coming out soon, and that's as far as he can go right now. This would lead me to believe that they're announcing DLC that will coincide with the arcade release (probably a couple or characters) and/or they're announcing other ports (PC would be most likely).

#40
Creation_Scapes said on July 12, 2010 at 6:18 p.m.

When Ono came out on stage at EVO he kept saying it's not Dark-Void 2, it's not Dark-Void 2. Could he be hinting by saying DARK void, maybe DARK-stalkers? :P

#41
2dfightermf said on July 12, 2010 at 6:21 p.m.

I'm not one to use this word often, but am i the only one who thinks Street Fighter vs. Tekken is a tacky idea? To me this game has the same stink as MKvsDC. "Hey, people like these two things, lets put them together! It'll be great!"

-_-'

I just dont see a way to please both tekken and sf fans in a single integrated game. They are too different. And why should it be done? Both franchises are fine on their own. What fan of either would want this? Some ZOMG DEVIL JIN VS EVIL RYU!!!?!?one! mugen fighter making internet brat would i suppose.

i just dont get it.

As far as the announcement, i think its ssf4 dlc. New darkstalkers or rerelease of 3S on PSN and XBL pulling up the rear.

AIM said on July 13, 2010 at 5:13 a.m.

Tekken vs Street Fighter might be possible.

Maybe they'll take the two game approach, one where they SF4-ize the Tekken characters (not so difficult), and a second game, where they Tekken-ize the SF characters (more difficult).

Either that or maybe Namco was excited to see how their guys would look like in an SF4 setting, and decided to do just that. (This scenario might not please hardcore Tekken fans, but its intriguing to me, a fan of both).

#48
Lolento said on July 13, 2010 at 12:08 p.m.

@#51 halo
You completely missed the point when I said "we", not "I": people who visit this kind of website and are interested in crossovers are likely to have heard of Namco X Capcom.

Also, it should be clear enough that when people ask for a "Namco vs Capcom", they mean a fighting game, so there's no point in saying it's already done and pointing to an RPG. Your mention of NXC contributed absolutely nothing to the discussion, just diverted it so you could show off your knowledge.
