Updated again: Partial translation of Nakky blog Q&A

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • March 26, 2010 at 7:05 p.m. PDT
Updated again: Partial translation of Nakky blog Q&A Two community members have provided a partial translation of the latest question and answer session entry that was made on the Japanese Super Street Fighter 4 blog.

There are some random interesting details in here, and there may be additional stuff added to this post in the future if more of the translation is posted. To get you started, here are the cliff notes from Azrael.

• If you have a Street Fighter 4 save file on your system, then there's an 11th color available for the characters...

• Says that with Hakan reveal, ALL characters have been introduced (i.e. no more hidden characters, but as always she never says anything concretely).

• No forced install, but she later notes that load times are faster overall.

• Not every character has 2 rival battles. Some only have 1.

• Endless battle has no win limit, but the counter only goes up to 3 digits, so aim for 999 wins.

• All characters are unlocked from the beginning.

• Casual clothes were considered for Chun-Li's 3rd alternative outfit, but the idea didn't make it in the end.

• Colors and taunts have to be unlocked, but will be much easier than in Street Fighter 4.

• Can search by region for online battles, and set region preference in Fight Request.

• Characters who already had a remixed theme in SFIV will have the same theme in Super Street Fighter 4.

• No facial adjustments/tweaking for the female characters.

• The soundtrack featured in the Collectors Package is only character themes. So there are no plans to release the BGM for the new stages on CD just yet, but she notes that they would like to at some point.

• Can't search for specific player data, or various types of Battle Points ranking like the arcade, but there are two new rankings - Battle Points by region, and Battle Points by character.

• She says that ultra select will take place after you and your opponent have picked your character, and that the blind select will be turned off. In other words, blind select pick your character, see each other's character, then ultra select. Yes, I know this is in contrast to what s-kill said, and I don't know why. That's just what she's written.

• No offline replays.

• Development blog will talk about character adjustments... but not in too much detail.

• No plans for SSFIV on PC at this time.

• Battle Points, Grade Points, titles and what not do not carry over from Street Fighter 4.

• Dead body hits are still in.

• Matching is done based on Player Points.

• No new features for Training Mode, except that the CPU will remember your settings.

• El Fuerte's moves aren't any faster.

• Color Edit mode wasn't possible.

• Install on 360 will probably be about 6GB.

• Character country flags have disappeared because they added the feature to display some preset phrases before a fight - the country flags were in at first but in the end the screen was too cluttered.

Venomish provided a partial translation as well.

Q: Are Mike from SF1 and Mike Bison (Boxer) the same person?
A: They are probably the same person.

Q: Don't tell me R. Mika isn't coming.
A: I can't tell you for sure but with Hakan SSF4 cast is complete.
(She might appear in cut scene?)

Q: Can I set up a limit to how many consecutive wins are allowed in endless battle mode?
A: No. there are 3 digits so good luck reaching 999 consecutive wins.

Q: Is there any possibility of Shin Akuma as a secret character?
A: Even if it was there I can't tell you or it won't be secret.

Q: Are there secret characters unlocked when finishing the game with certain characters?
A: Everyone loves to ask about "secret" characters, I wont be able to answer even if they existed. However we said it before that ALL CHARACTERS WILL BE PLAYABLE FROM THE BEGINNING.

Q: Is there going to be an all-costumes DLC pack for SSF4?
A: Yes, but it will be offered for sale last [when all costumes packs get offered] so it will be hard for those who want to use the costumes as soon as they are available.

Q: Is SF4's timeline before SF3?
A: Yes.

Q: When a Metsu Shoryuken hits female characters, will their chin also become like Inoki (famous Japanese wrestler)?
A:Yes! Or so I thought. The designer thought it was a pity and canceled the idea. Only Rose will kinda look like Inoki a bit though.

Q: In SSF4 will I inherit the Fuerte's Icon that I almost died trying to get in SF4.
A: I'm really sorry. You will not inherit it. So please try to get it again in SSF4.

Q: Is there going to be a PC version?
A: Nothing planned at the moment.

Q: Can I set arcade request setting to accept only people from Japan?
A: You can set it up to "accept people from same area only"

Q: Are Guile's glasses a new costume.
A: Hehehe, there are not.

Also, here's a collection of the other interesting images from this blog entry.

The 11th color is an inked color version of your character.

I thought the 11th and 12th colors would be the ink wash and pencil style

#15
Lolento said on March 26, 2010 at 11:44 a.m.

@#16
Exactly what I was going to say.

About hidden characters: well, I find it unlikely. Anyway, before anyone starts talking crap about Shadow being in, THAT WAS A FAKE. Just some guy (a regular, not some kind of insider) claiming the Famitsu he just bought revealed him and Hakan.

#16
yes4me said on March 26, 2010 at 11:54 a.m.

imo, it looks like the low tier are: El Fuerte, Gen, Adon, Guy and Makoto... in my hands for sure.
But Gen has new links? like in SFA3??

I still can't believe Capcom gave Gen air ultra2 to Crimson Viper.

#17
Pusha_T said on March 26, 2010 at 11:58 a.m.

See. So many people were complaining that gen was nerfed but he's actually become stronger.

#18
ScytheWP said on March 26, 2010 at 12:04 p.m.

@ 21

Capcom said Gen is stronger.

Capcom also said Akuma's LP HK loop was gone.

Don't trust them, stupid. If a character loses a BnB, he's probably weaker.

#19
Sakura said on March 26, 2010 at 12:05 p.m.

• Ibuki's alternate confirmed to be schoolgirl uniform.

we already knew this...

#20
Lolento said on March 26, 2010 at 12:07 p.m.

@#22
No proof that Akuma still has a loop. A 5-hit combo is not a loop -- maybe the frame advantage still allows the linking, but the opponent could be pushed back too far to keep going.

#21
Lolento said on March 26, 2010 at 12:07 p.m.

Also, I don't recall them ever saying the loop was gone, only PLAYERS saying so.

#22
ScytheWP said on March 26, 2010 at 12:08 p.m.

@ 24

You didn't see the video on the homepage before...did you?

It's clearly there, and Akuma ends up in the same place. The timing is more strict, but it's still there.

#23
Cobalt said on March 26, 2010 at 12:11 p.m.

@22

Pretty sure they didn't say the LP HK loop was gone. This came from people who had an early build and decided to test stuff.

Although Gen does lose his bnb, we don't know anything about his new links so whether he stays the same or gets stronger/weaker, we don't know yet.

#24
ScytheWP said on March 26, 2010 at 12:11 p.m.

It's not even worth arguing when people don't listen to everything...

Where's the good news aBout. All i keep heaRIN IS A BUNCH OF GARBAGE for him.

I also read something aBout evil ryu as secret character But it wasn't confired.

#27
Mugenpunch said on March 26, 2010 at 12:29 p.m.

Regarding Akuma-- The post which was made on his loop said that you cannot start the loop with the LP, but you can end it with LP. So you can do standing HK then LP for a 3-hit, but you cannot keep chaining it into a loop. Also in the video, the combo ends after LP and it says 3-hit combo, meaning it cannot be an infinite loop. So if you tried doing the loop, the opponent can use a reversal shoryuken for example after the LP.

#28
NA said on March 26, 2010 at 12:31 p.m.

I guess that's sort of cool.

Where is the Sf English site

#32
Dan_CiTi said on March 26, 2010 at 12:48 p.m.

The 11th color makes the character looks all inky (the SFIV style). I imagine it looks similar to the Ink filter from the PC version of SFIV, but probably touched up a bit. 12th color on the other hand is the dashed line/pencil-y/handrawn style of SSFIV.

#33
NobleEskimo said on March 26, 2010 at 12:49 p.m.

@Scythe WP

Akuma's loop IS gone. You can link it once, at most, and it pushes you too far away. The video you're thinking of are not loops. The max they get is 5 hits, which is kick + lp + kick, not a loop. The majority of the hits in that video are 3 hit combos.

#34
J said on March 26, 2010 at 12:55 p.m.

Awww, I was hoping the extra colors would be some more radical changes, like different skin tones or hair color...

#35
HandsomePhil said on March 26, 2010 at 1:06 p.m.

Glad I managed to borrow/install SFIV on my console then. Isn't worth buying/renting for an 11th color imo.

#36
brenttiscool said on March 26, 2010 at 1:19 p.m.

I don't know about a hidden character, but I can see there being like a hidden super boss, like past Gouken or Akuma. Whether he/she will be playable or not is something I don't know yet.

#37
Jskill said on March 26, 2010 at 1:24 p.m.

I feel a little disappointed that there won't be a gallery section in ssfIV...

#38
Lolento said on March 26, 2010 at 1:29 p.m.

@#26
He didn't. Watch it again, Akuma got pushed back about 1.5~2 squares. Even with perfect execution, it won't be too long before the jab whiffs. Just look at the guy trying the HK->LP link, he whiffs every other attempt.
Anyway, this point is pretty much moot: they could have given Akuma this link back after some testing and balance study.

General_Awesomo said on March 26, 2010 at 1:43 p.m.

Jesus, I f***ing hate Nakky!

• If you have Street Fighter 4, you will be able to have an 11th character color!?

Typical Japanese bull****, over-dramatizing everything. This is a time when we need information. How are we supposed to take you seriously when you sound like a little 9 year old (equivalent to a 40 year old Japanese person). Not to mention that you talk about stuff that we already know.

• Ibuki's alternate confirmed to be schoolgirl uniform.

We f***ing knew that already, dip****!

• Computer vs. Computer mode is available.

Really? This was in SF4. I wouldn't expect Capcom to take this off in SSF4.

Nakky sucks.

#41
CharlieNash said on March 26, 2010 at 1:46 p.m.


• Said SSF4 will feature all characters to be playable from the start, but won't say anything about hidden characters.

OMGGGGGG HIDDEN CHARACTERS??????????

Could it be charlie????:O

#42
NA said on March 26, 2010 at 1:48 p.m.

@General_Awesomo

You are reading a bullet-point version of a question and answer session. Nakky is giving responses to questions posed over the website.
The 11th character color and Ibuki's alternate costume were never officially revealed, so it makes sense that people might not have heard of them, and that they appear for the first time in an official capacity with some measure of fanfare.

You are allowed to be mad, but it isn't Nakky's fault.

#43
duckmouth said on March 26, 2010 at 1:49 p.m.

No way I'd have sold my copy of SFIV anyway, couldn't have down without it in the wait for SSFIV. The 'bonus' for keeping it is just that, a bonus. Half a loaf is better than no bread.

#44
OG said on March 26, 2010 at 1:51 p.m.

11th Color? LOL

#45
General_Awesomo said on March 26, 2010 at 1:57 p.m.

@ 46.

We have known about Ibuki's alt for some time. Don't you remember seeing the pics of numerous alts from that Xbox 360 SSF4 wallpaper thing. It was posted here on Eventhubs some time ago. We also knew about colors 11 (SF4's ink style) and 12 (SSF4's sketch style). However, we didn't know about color 11 being a SF4 bonus, so I guess that evens out.

It's just that Nakky comes off as unprofessional.

On another note. If there is truly to be some hidden characters, this would blow the mind of every SF fan's mind. New speculations on who the hidden character(s) will be born. Could be Charlie.

GrimmjawJin said on March 26, 2010 at 2:03 p.m.

What bonus character? Didn't S'kill and ono say that hakan was the final one to be revealed? This sure is a surprise I must say.

#48
NA said on March 26, 2010 at 2:04 p.m.

@50
We have known about Ibuki's alt and the colors, yes, but there were never official statements from Capcom about them. Nakky is revealing them as if the info was unknown because Capcom is not taking the leak into account, just like they made big deals about every single other announcement that had previously been leaked. I don't think the behavior is unprofessional, and it doesn't shock me at all.

Shadowzz said on March 26, 2010 at 2:28 p.m.

I doubt guy will be low tier, he has ways through fireballs and has a good offensive game and his EX Spinkick is apparently godlike as it will hit the opponent even if they attempt to cross up. Dont knock him until you try him same goes for all the low tier characters..most people never know the match up or what they are truly capable of until people play them.

"That hidden comment makes no sense. If all characters were playable from the start the hidden characters would be playable from the starts, but then they wouldn't be hidden."

actually they would if they're hidden off screen like Akuma, Gil and Evil Ryu in past games

#60
ScytheWP said on March 26, 2010 at 3:11 p.m.

"I really don't understand why people are so obsessed with Charlie?"

Charlie is a center point of a few people's story

It's why Guile is in it
It's why Abel is alive(he was rescued by charlie
it's why Bison's plans have all gone to hell so far imagine if his plans from alpha had succeeded?

He ties over 10 characters in the universe together as well as a better version of Guile

#64
KDash said on March 26, 2010 at 3:20 p.m.

"• El Fuerte's specials are not faster at all."

Yes, I am switching from Fuerte for a reason. He's supposed to be a fast little wrestler man but instead one must work for every round no matter how good or bad the player. Not to mention his very slow normals as well.

So all he got was a new ultra? incredible, hello new main, here i come.

#65
DJay2411 said on March 26, 2010 at 3:21 p.m.

@SurgeFist it means that you can copy a saved file to another console. In other words, saves the pain in the ass process of unlocking all the characters on EVERY console for a tournament etc...

#66
recovery said on March 26, 2010 at 3:29 p.m.

Just like Ryu and ken do almost the same thing, Charlie different normals, a unqine special(the downward crescent moon) and different frame and attack data for the moves he dose share with Gulie

#72
Bibuki said on March 26, 2010 at 3:45 p.m.

There is still hope for Charlie!

He's the only one who could replace Ibuki as my future main. That is because I main Guile and he would obviously be easier to pick up. I'd still use Ibuki as alt though.

@recovery - people jugde Guile by looking at the way newbs play him. like with Ken and Sagat (and half of the cast, Gief, Blanka, etc). It's pretty useless to say that kind of stuff. Guiles that run away are just killed by any good players.
