New Street Fighter X Tekken character demos for Vega, Balrog and Hugo - Fight Club coverage, live stream with iPW tomorrow

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • February 8, 2012 at 5:45 p.m. PST
A fresh batch of Street Fighter X Tekken character demos from GamesRadar was put up this evening. Vega, Balrog and Hugo are covered in this set, and there's also a video from the recent Capcom Fight Club that was held in San Francisco.

Again, not high level stuff here, but it's still nice to see a bit about these fighters before the game is released.

Click the link below for more.

They also posted some video from a recent Capcom Fight Club held in San Francisco, getting player opinions about the gem system and what they're most looking forward to in game.

GamesRadar will be teaming up with iPlayWinner tomorrow to do a live SFxT stream at 4 p.m. PST, and you'll be able to watch it live on Twitch.tv, as Haunts, LPN and Crackfiend join in.

#3 and how exactly do you know it? you work for Capcom? where's proof? or you're talking about those salty rumour? ...gimme a break...

Summoner said on February 8, 2012 at 6:11 p.m.

...but i swear if its going to be true after all i'm going to boycott this game...Namco you better not let me down like Capcom did with all their rediculous gem system, pandora and now day 1 cut-off dlc content...

Did I understand him correctly...

Hugo has super armor on his normal lariats?

And what exactly is wrong with Pandora Summoner? It's completely harmless.

@kupowns #3
And as far as *I* know, that rumor is completely unfounded. I'll believe it if and when I see it, but I don't think it's very likely.

#11
Von_Kunlun_BOOF said on February 8, 2012 at 6:23 p.m.

In unsurprising news, most of the comments on one of the news story are about other sh*t, and not about people actually talking about the topic at hand.

Hugo doesn't have Meat Squasher anymore?

Freaknik2128 said on February 8, 2012 at 6:25 p.m.

Summoner and Gattsu,you are both MORONS! Now shut up!!

#14
yuenyun said on February 8, 2012 at 6:28 p.m.

I'll be playing Hugo that's for sure lol. If this is true, then... spam lariat into whatever combo. Did they forget his meat squasher (360+k)? I hope that has armor too xD It'd make more sense for that to have that, at least compared to lariat. But w/e i'll take it

#15
Summoner said on February 8, 2012 at 6:31 p.m.

...at this moment this DLC related rumour is what interests me the most and i don't give two pennies about gameplay of characters, which were confrimed long time ago...

Bonymac23 said on February 8, 2012 at 6:32 p.m.

Marco Sanchez community manager is the Guy doing the character preview but I notice in the last video he introduces himself. It doesn't sound like him from the other footage. But I guess that's him *shoulder shrugged*

#17
RedWaltz79 said on February 8, 2012 at 6:38 p.m.

@21

Sounded like him to me. It could just be the different audio set-ups for the different locales. It's surprising how much different audio set-ups, and their quality, can affect how one sounds.

Anyway, I enjoyed the Fight Club video. Nice to hear what the community thinks.

Robert1989 said on February 8, 2012 at 6:41 p.m.

Off topic question...say you have a full meter and you dont want to do a cross assult but just a super art. What will be the actual button command. To my understanding, to pull off a SA its QCF+two punch buttons, correct me if im wrong. Would that mean that a CA is QCF+three punch buttons?

#19
Rising_Jaguar said on February 8, 2012 at 6:42 p.m.

dlc characters are not gonna be for awhile =="
pretty silly if you think that'd have dlc as soon as release..

its only for major updates, if the characters were already
planned to be in the game then they'll be in the game...
the two were ALREADY in the trailer so that clears that up.

everyone stop arguing, lolz

#20
Rising_Jaguar said on February 8, 2012 at 6:49 p.m.

in other news! man! this game looks awesome!!
before all i saw were abc-abc combos which looked bland.
but now that i see the characters play as individuals,
it just looks mad ass!!! and my vega...
i can see all the combo potentials with him already xD

#21
TheRedCyclone said on February 8, 2012 at 6:49 p.m.

Glad to see my favorite SF character make a good comeback. I really like the new EX lariat Hugo has, should make for some interesting combo setups.

let it all out son

#23
Bonymac23 said on February 8, 2012 at 6:52 p.m.

@20
The two were already in trailer so that clears things up???? Haggard was also in the trailer, so does that mean he is going to be in as well??? I don't think so. If u think about a lot of the FINAL FIGHT characters would be in this franchise. POISEN HUGO ROLENTO already and if possible GUY AND CODY. So that will be a total of 5. Characters from a different franchise in this title. So will CAPCOM add those extra characters?? It really isn't a strong determination for GUY and Cody just cause they had a 3 sec scene in a trailer

#24
I_hate_u said on February 8, 2012 at 7:04 p.m.

Why aren`t they showing Tekken characters?
Save for Rolento, Hugo and Posion, all SF are in most cases copies of sf4

#25
Rising_Jaguar said on February 8, 2012 at 7:18 p.m.

@24
lol, i knew someone was gonna bring that up, but didn't
think i'd have to clear it up. fair enough but cody and guy
have defs a high chance to be in this game since from sf4,
plus they're a popular team combo....but hagger, no.
you can't have zang and haggar in the same game + he's
in mvc. its just silly and common sense.
last but not least, the new challenger sign from
the trailer is just a huge hint to that. just u wait'n'see.

#26
Aluppoj said on February 8, 2012 at 7:21 p.m.

@24

I am offended. The World is offended. His name is NOT "Haggard"!

It's MIKE "MACHO" HAGGAR!!!!

And if there is a God in heaven Haggar and Alex will be the first DLC for the SF side!!!!

#27
Rising_Jaguar said on February 8, 2012 at 7:21 p.m.

& just pointing it out there, i never said they were bound
to be in the game. just if they were, they wouldn't be
straight dlc, and would be in the game already since the
character models could be reused. hope i cleared that up.

#28
Aluppoj said on February 8, 2012 at 7:26 p.m.

@26

Did you just say "you can't have Zangief and Haggar in the same game"!

This is one of Video Games greatest rivalries! It makes Rog/Dudly look like puppy vs kitten!

Haggar vs Zangief will happen someday! And when it does Planet Earth will Fu<king Explode!

The Mayor wants his clothes back!!! Hurrrryaaaa!!!

#29
No_Surrender said on February 8, 2012 at 7:32 p.m.

Vote Haggar for Street Fighter 5.

Wait...

VOTE HAGGAR FOR TEKKEN x STREET FIGHTER.

Thank you Harada

#30
Aluppoj said on February 8, 2012 at 7:37 p.m.

Note to any Capcom executives who may read this forum.

Mike Haggar for DLC in SFxT will sell $1,000,000 dollars all by itself! Put Haggar in the game and when he's on the Final Fight Stage just replace him in the BG.

Like the Air Strip stage in SF4 (Bison, Balrog, Vega swap Bg)

PLEASE!

Just make it a grappler pack and add Alex (SF3) also!!!

#31
BeatNinja said on February 8, 2012 at 7:43 p.m.

Needs more EX...Pfft, just kidding. Needs more Elena.

@27
Lmaooo sorry bro I know how his name is spelled, it was a typo. @rising jaguar. I guess u have a point I forgot about that in the tralier. "the new challenger" sign just b4 Cody and Guy enter. But knowing Capcom they can probably change their minds at the last min....but who knows????. All I can do Is cross my fingers and hope it happens

#33
Rising_Jaguar said on February 8, 2012 at 8:04 p.m.

All good Bonymac...
Yeah I'd like to say Capcom would have the common sense to put
all the world warrior characters in for this big dream game.
But it doesn't look like it so far, so I guess all we can
do is expect the unexpected..

WiL said on February 8, 2012 at 8:31 p.m.

OMG Hugo is huge!!!

lol this is gonna be great. you bastards are going to pay dearly for all the crap Vega users have had to put up with over the years of SF4 series Mwuahahahaha!!!

loloro said on February 8, 2012 at 9:19 p.m.

swear to god everyone who says they will play Hugo will be complete GARBAGE.

He does have Meat Squasher.

XxRagingxDemonxX said on February 8, 2012 at 9:35 p.m.

@Robert1989
No, Super Art is QCF+3 P/K (Depends on char.) Cross Assault is QCF+mP+mK (Medium punch+Kick does everything that could take up meter, like switch canceling and Cross Assault and Cross Arts, etc. So QCB+ mP+ mK is Cross Arts)

http://www.capcom.co.jp/sfxtk_en/inde...

Seriously, everyone needs to look at the main website, for everything, like chars. Gems. Battle system and Mechanics.

It even Explains Gems detailed which i highly doubt ppl look at, b/c if everyone did, no one would complain on how Gems are OP, or that it will cause a scrub to beat you with a certain Gem setup. Which is false. Read each thing about the Gems carefully. You will see how little each Gem output has and its not stacking 3 different X-Factors on top of each other. Not even close to X-Factor

#38
PeiWei said on February 8, 2012 at 10:44 p.m.

@Robert1989
The Super Arts are done with a motion like QCF + PPP or KKK, but the actual motion depends on the character (i.e. For King's Super Art you need to do a HCF), usually it's just the regular motion for a special move with PPP/KKK. Cross Arts and Cross Assault use the MP+MK Tag command, specifically QCF MK+MP for Cross Arts and QCB MK+MP for Cross Assault (Hopefully I'm not mixing up the names! :x). Basically, anything to do with your partner is going to use MP+MK (i.e. Tagging, Tag Cancel, Tagging out while knocked down, Cross Arts and Assault, etc.).

DanielMVC said on February 9, 2012 at 4:21 a.m.

oh god, i hate the way Hugo wiggles.

I hope the characters have taunts!

#45
XxRagingxDemonxX said on February 9, 2012 at 6:39 a.m.

They might not have taunts, all the button combinations are being used up. Unless they put it as select, Since Select does nothing Still... Also i hope they dont make it like SSFIVAE where after the last hit that kills someone, you cant move at all nor taunt. I like taunting after a kill. Idk what the point of that was.

#46
shinwar said on February 9, 2012 at 6:59 a.m.

@46 yeah they should put that back in.

#47
jimk23 said on February 9, 2012 at 7:01 a.m.

@45
Only if they use select, start or a weird command like lk+hp
because hp+hk is already used for the launcher

#48
SyckEndings said on February 9, 2012 at 7:44 a.m.

So this months character reveals will be the last Inb4 the game comes out right? Only thing there's really left to look forward to at this point.

Also:

THE WALKING DEAD -> Sunday February 12, 2012 9:00Pm EST
