3DS Super Street Fighter 4 gameplay video, images & notes

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • January 19, 2011 at 8:34 a.m. PST
Some gameplay footage for the 3DS version of Super Street Fighter 4 was posted by Capcom this morning. Also, a feature overview interview with the title's producer, Yoshinori Ono is up, and there are a few images of the game as well. Hit the jump to see everything.

Here's the Ono clip from Capcom-Unity.

Here's a little blurb from the official feature set document.

• Online / Local WiFi Multiplayer – Fight your friends around the world or in the same room with the only title to utilize the full capabilities of Nintendo’s online network at launch.

• 35 Playable Characters – Play as a huge array of fighters ranging from classic world warriors like Ryu, Ken, Guile and Chun Li to the newly added Hakan and Juri.

• Figurine Mode – The collectible meta-game features figurines of iconic characters in a brand-new addition to the Street Fighter franchise. When passing by another Nintendo 3DS owner, your chosen figurines will automatically battle via StreetPass. Next time you play the game you can view the results and collect your loot.

• 3D Mode – A new over-the-shoulder camera option has been added, offering an exciting new perspective of the action.

• Game Sharing – Play a game with a friend using the ever-popular Ryu, even when they don’t have a cartridge!

• Be A Spectator – With the Spectator Mode, use your own Nintendo 3DS to watch your friends battle it out live.

• Lite/Pro Control Modes – By utilizing a customizable touch screen interface, two new optional control schemes have been added to allow new players to pull off challenging moves with ease (Lite) and veterans to better access button combinations such as throws and three punches (Pro).

Tip from ShinHayabusa2jz and Touhatsu.

Wow gameplay looks solid, and all this for 3ds? cool

Didn't think it'd be able to handle sf4, i know my laptop couldn't handle sf4 vanilla.

Looks pretty cool but the characters in the background don't move (or barely) so that kinda looks weird.

Might get the game if I every buy a 3ds tho.

Wow, so surprised that it looks and plays pretty much the same as console when in motion (Except for some of the fireballs and hitsparks).

Love the idea of battling random people that you walk past in public, but I feel like that might work better in Japan since its a much smaller country thats more densely populated. I think the odds of me running into some random person who actually has a 3DS and SSFIV3D is kinda slim @_@

This is such gimmicky nonsense but it looks kinda neat. I wouldnt want to play SF on a DS pad and buttons though.

Now where is the real deal PC version already?

Stop wasting development time on 3DS.

PC FTW.

How bad is the English dub? Always amuses me.

The graphic is so good even in 3DS, that small box, on that small screen... Hate to say this but there are so many wonderful games like SSF4, never get a chance to be on PC due to non-tech reasons

gattz said on January 19, 2011 at 9:38 a.m.

Huh. Looks pretty interesting. If I ever get a 3DS I'll definitely have to check it out.

@MALDA

Continuum Shift II begs to differ.

But these are both just our own opinions.

Looks pretty neat. It's too bad that it's probably going to be obsolete as soon as it comes out or pretty soon after, with SSF4 AE likely getting patched to consoles within the next few months.

It looks great for a portable, and the over-the-shoulder camera must be spectacular in 3D.

However, and as much as I love SSF4 and 3DS and the idea of both combined, there are some issues that totally kill this game for hardcore players, IMO:

- 3DS' button layout is even worse than regular PS3/360 pad
- Will be outdated right at launch, with AE coming soon
- Online community not nearly as large as consoles'

Though from a casual SF player this game is downright awesome.

#16
FroggyMan77 said on January 19, 2011 at 10:32 a.m.

You know, the point of these portable fighters aren't to be competitive games, but just to be able to play them on the go and perhaps gain things like matchup information and other experience you can use in the console game. The point is to have FUN.

@MALDA

BB's community, both in Japan and in the West, is larger than you think.

kirbykirbykirby said on January 19, 2011 at 11:02 a.m.

ill definitely pick it up. i used to game all the time with a pad playing street fighter and still do in tvc and mvc2 so it wont be so bad.

#21
cvs said on January 19, 2011 at 11:06 a.m.

@6 For now,and even then there's Dead or Alive dimensions,looking foward to that also,since im still a doa fan at least.Also Blazblue CS2.

@20 LMFAO rage more against emo's,goth's and BB.

#22
cvs said on January 19, 2011 at 11:08 a.m.

People are gonna say that other people don't care about a certain game or series,just because either they don't play it,or follow that series directly.Then again,people are really "picky" about fighting games now a days.

#23
BlankaBeast said on January 19, 2011 at 11:41 a.m.

Agree with 17, most like stick or even fightpad is better than a default pad layout for fighters.

SF on the 3DlolS is silly.

@MALDA

Well of course it's not as large. It's only been around for two years. All of those other ones you mentioned have longevity on their side. But in those two years, BB's community has grown remarkably fast. Certainly faster than you currently believe.

Just because you don't like BB doesn't mean that "no one plays BB."

@KenMasters87

Cool story, bro.

P.S.

DOA has a community? Filled with what? People who like to oogle at the girls?

#28
Sektah84 said on January 19, 2011 at 12:31 p.m.

@9 the pc version won't sell as much as the console or portable version. Im pretty sure they saw what happened with sfiv on pc and said we will stay away from the pc market. Enjoy it on your console.

#29
BlankaBeast said on January 19, 2011 at 12:33 p.m.

33 - Thanks but PC is a platform I want to play it on and arcade is a PC so little work to port it over, I still have hope for AE PC FTW.

EVOBiohazard said on January 19, 2011 at 12:34 p.m.

Why is the background completely frozen in place? Don't tell me 3DS isn't powerful enough! All we need is just simple motions like in SSF4. Even all the people are standing still, like it's a screenshot from SSF4

#31
cvs said on January 19, 2011 at 12:38 p.m.

@32 It might be hard to notice depending on the area you live in,your's must be a capcom place,but there is a doa community,and doa4 is still played online constantly.

Truth. My Tempe friends and I just started playing DoA 4 again. And we rotate between Tekken, SF4, GG and BB.

Cart sharing, think it was done better on GBA if they only gonna let you use just ryu, hope that was just an example.

As others have mention about the non moving background, im sure they are just demoing what they have done so far. If the 3DS is already running into limitations even before coming out then something is wrong.

My only real beef with it is not actually a 3DS issue, the simple fact of the auto battling while walking around or whatever. Maybe thats aimed towards folks in middle/high school or something and even then people get robbed during school back when i was that age >_<. Dont see how that gimmick is gonna fair in america where folks tend to be inside most of the day whether at work/school or home.

#40
Zombie4u said on January 19, 2011 at 2:46 p.m.

I think that the Ultra meter icons could be smaller or have a move to the bottom screen option. Just to open up the main display a bit more.

This looks pretty sweet for a portable fighter though.

#41
Sektah84 said on January 19, 2011 at 2:47 p.m.

@malda its been two years and BB is still strong so i dont know what you talking about

#42
FroggyMan77 said on January 19, 2011 at 3:15 p.m.

@MALDA

Guilty Gear is a great game, although I find it ironic that while one of the reasons you hate BB is because of the off-the-wall character design, you like GG, that has similar design. Hypocritical, much?

@Sektah84

MALDA never knows what he's talking about.

(Lol..." Game Sharing – Play a game with a friend using the ever-popular Ryu, even when they don’t have a cartridge!")

AceJace2 said on January 19, 2011 at 6:32 p.m.

I don't think Capcom should be adding it to the 3DS. They should be worrying about getting AE DLC on home consoles.

#45
Crysalim said on January 19, 2011 at 8:07 p.m.

You can really feel Ono's passion about this. I play SFA3 on the way to the arcade on my PSP sometimes just for practice, and it will be -SO- nice to have the actual game ready to play before I hit the cabinet.

That's really what the best part about this is!! You can practice on the way to the arcade, right before a tournament, you can test out things you just thought of in an arcade... it really will become a great tool for the community. Can't wait for it, honestly.

#46
GodPride said on January 19, 2011 at 10:07 p.m.

If they were going to include static versions of the SSF4 stages from the console port to the 3DS, they might as well have created new sets of maps with no background characters or atleast select tradition stages with little to no interaction, like one with the Gouken & Akuma statue.

#47
CoNr said on January 20, 2011 at 5:11 a.m.

Street fighter will never come to a PC again, its to easy to Pirate... sf4 vanilla was one of the most pirated games on PC when it was released.

Also BB and GG are awesome fighters, not every 2d fighter has to stick to the SF mould, even tho i love SSF4 its defo one of the worst fighting games around, input shortcuts easy mode combos, and get out of jail free cards with Ultras. I for one cannot wait till MVC3 comes out and all the people who jumped on the fighting game bandwagon when SF4 came out are gonna sh!t them selves when they get absolutely destroyed and cant do anything about it... alot of SF scrubs are gonna get very salty!
