Ono teases an update to Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012

Posted by SFilp • January 23, 2013 at 5:18 p.m. PST
Yoshinori Ono is teasing an update to Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 over on his Twitter. Usually Ono is a bit more cagey about direct details, but this is the first time he's been so forthcoming about a potential update to the game.

Ono has mentioned a few times previously that he'd consider updating the Street Fighter 4 franchise again, and also recently hinted that fan feedback pointed him in the direction of doing additional work with the Street Fighter franchise.

And I feel very much that we want to do something for [this] series.

I wonder what chaos would happen if he were to loose that Blanka figure one the bus or something. Capcom's whole fighting game division would shut down to look for it probably.

@Guybrush: I'd declare that a national emergency, wouldn't anyone?

I'll start us off: Give Gouken an "Angry Scar" for his non-ex parries that costs one to two bars. It would change his ENTIRE metagame.

A new update with a few new characters and a little balancing would be wonderful

Man if they put Karin in I'd drop my main and go straight for her. I'd like to see some 3s cast as well. Sodom and Birdie too. Oh well. If it happens it happens.

xBMxSage said on January 23, 2013 at 4:47 p.m.

I've finally picked the game up and am working on learning Makoto and Ibuki. The sound of an update scares me a little since I wouldn't want either of those two to receive nerfs but since they aren't heavily used characters they probably wouldn't receive nerfs at all.

alfarin said on January 23, 2013 at 4:55 p.m.

Ah-Hm. My question is... Is this really needed? Don't get me wrong, it's great to see this game potentially get support but it's in a place that's good right now. 2012 fixed the issues in AE and balance wise, it is in a sensible place with no stupid stuff (none that's gamebreaking or balance busting at least). Wouldn't the effort be better based somewhere else?

Unless, you know, Cammy's going to get another buff. Then I'm game XD

....oddly I am betting they are referring to a balance change of some sort. I don't see them adding character to this. Or at least I should say quality character, not some swap like E.Ryu was.

#25
LK said on January 23, 2013 at 5:01 p.m.

They already created models for new characters in SFxTK (Poison, Hugo, Elena, etc).

You know Capcom, never going to pass up an opportunity to re-use assets. Not that I am complaining. Ono-san, take my money!

#26
ZeDudd said on January 23, 2013 at 5:01 p.m.

I'd like to see Sodom, Rolento, Poison, and Hugo, (Mad Gear 4 life, yo!) but i know this is never gonna happen.

Popular characters like Karin and Elena have better chances.

...that is, IF they're going to add characters.

Only new characters I really want are Charlie and Haggar (I know, both kinda similar to others). Otherwise, obvious buffs (Guile, Rose, Dudley, Dee Jay, Vega) and nerfs (Cammy, Akuma, Seth, Fei Long) and there's a load of online improvements and modes they could make to the game, along with some kind of decent YouTube recording facility.

#36
Crazcar said on January 23, 2013 at 5:12 p.m.

I'd be up for this 100% even if it is a title update (meaning it'll cost money, like AE). What I'd like to see in it if they make it that way is I guess 4~ characters (I'd take the SFxT characters + Q and Alex!), some new stages, maybe old modes that were removed, better netcode, etc. And of course to buff the low tiers, but I know it wouldn't just be buffs for just them, we may get another Yang or Honda over nerfing >.>

Anyways, even just a balance patch would be cool, provided that they are at least mostly good buff/nerfs. Like buffs to Chun, Rose, Vega, Honda, Yang...and I guess nerf Akuma! lol

@32

HAGGAR! ALEX! And the folks from SFxT!

That, plus some stages and a balance (to balance in the new guys) and you can have my $40.00!...... Forget that, have another $60.00!

I love this franchise and am more than happy to support it:)

#39
Eye_of_Orochi said on January 23, 2013 at 5:13 p.m.

Man, so many possibilities. They could use the models from some of SFxT's swap costumes to do Charlie, Alex, Sodom, Necro, Urien and Gill. Just need to bring back the old movesets and work them in. They could also use Hugo, Poison, Rolento, Haggar and Elena if they want. I know bringing in more characters is a stretch but here's hoping for at least one!

It does scare me as someone who mains Cammy in every game (yes even SFII, SFA3, MvC2) but I can work her no matter how bad she is. I am a T. Hawk mainer too after all :)

#40
antiheroforhire said on January 23, 2013 at 5:13 p.m.

@ badjab326,

Yeah, with the Ps4 (Orbis) on the rise, maybe it's a Street Fighter related announcement for the next gen console. I thought that originally when I saw this announcement.

As for an update to SSF4 2012, er... if it is, just don't do it so "intentionally" brokenly like you did originally, Ono!

#41
RagingDemon said on January 23, 2013 at 5:15 p.m.

AE2012 is fine enough as it is... no more update please. No disrespect to those who are interested though.

#42
CycloidX said on January 23, 2013 at 5:16 p.m.

I will definitely will like to know if Ono san is planing just a character balance or adding more content. I'll love to see more characters and if possible A LOT more stages. The return of the championship mode will be awesome.
For characters Alex, Oro and Urien from 3rd strike. Birdie, Eagle, Sodom and Karin from Alpha. Geki and Lee from SF1. And add 1 or 2 totally new characters. That will be INSANE!!!

But i think that will not happen. Will probably just get a balance update. That sounds more real.

Edit: @Aluppoj Oh I forgot Rolento, Elena, Poison and Hugo. LOL cause they are already on SFxT I forgot that those can be added.

#43
zUkUu said on January 23, 2013 at 5:17 p.m.

SAOTOME2U said on January 23, 2013 at 5:27 p.m.

I'm not really keen on rebalancing of characters, as AE2012 has been praised for being the "most balanced." I still say it just needs to be updated cosmetically to make it seem fresh or newer. Look at how SFs were done in the 90s. With each new version/update, backgrounds changed color, the life meters were changed, and other stuff.

Personally, I'd be okay with just that, and maybe some better or remixed music. It would actually be cool to have the 3D rendered stages from SF2 onward. I'm just scared that if AE2012 gets updated again, we'll end up with the lemon that was SSF4AE and have more Yun/Yang/Fei Long rape sessions...

#61
KingKong said on January 23, 2013 at 5:38 p.m.

Great! Thank you capcom. In my opinion we don't need more characters. We need balance changes to the current roster.

#62
cris25 said on January 23, 2013 at 5:39 p.m.

1) Make some of Adon's moves punishable.
2) Let Blanka fadc and follow up a regular horiball, not just ex (3 meters is too much for that damage).
3) Make Ibuki's tsumuji loop a 2f link (it's not plinkable), lp neckbreaker travel less across the screen and have less damage and recovery, more chip damage on the kunai.
4) Make Vega's Ex Fba projectile invincible.
5) Make Gouken's palms projectile invincible for more frames (like Balrog's turn punch), ex palm strike invincible on startup, ex tatsu autocorrect (like Dj's), cl.mk a command normal, Ultra 1 startup and hitbox like Ryu's Ultra 2.
6) Less active frames and larger hurtbox on Dudley's j.hk.
7) More projectile invincible frames on Rose's soul reflect, and her bnb changed to a 2f link.
8) Oni's hk slash doesn't crossup, just the ex version.
9) Sakura's lk tatsu +5 on hit.
10) Add more stages!!!

#63
ShinOwen said on January 23, 2013 at 5:39 p.m.

All I ask for is a online training mode, like SFxT has. As for new ppl I would like Eagle, Karin, and Birdie.

#65
kdavis851 said on January 23, 2013 at 5:41 p.m.

Unless they are adding new characters, which I'd be totally for, I would like for the game to be left alone. Personally, I'm not keen on balance patches alone, because its going to result in nerfs and buffs based on popular opinion, and I don't want another Yang situation.

If they do decide to do just a balance patch, then I'd like it if they just buff the lower tier characters and leave the rest alone.

#66
EXCh33ky said on January 23, 2013 at 5:45 p.m.

Personally, I think this is a bad idea. This game is fairly balanced, and I have a feeling if a new update comes out its gonna be AE (not 2012) all over again...watch em nerf Balrog too -_-

#67
Schwoi said on January 23, 2013 at 5:45 p.m.

BUFF MY MAIN AND NERF ALL THE OTHERS PLZ CAPCOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and I agree with #67

#68
RebornOdin said on January 23, 2013 at 5:47 p.m.

My wishlist of things that are actually reasonable, balanced and not pipedreams:

1. Reduce Seth's DP from 7 frames invulnerability to 5, same as Sagats. Seth's DP is 5 frames with 7 frames invulnerability.

2. Reduce Seth's EX DP from 22 frames invulnerability to 11.

3. T. Hawk's DP should have 1 more frame of invulnerability on his light version.

4. Online training mode

5. Guile's EX Flash Kick should have 1 more frame of invulnerability, to differentiate itself from his light Flash Kick rather than just essentially having more damage.

6. Dudley's Rose taunt should do 10 damage on hit.

7. Remove 'unblockabes'. Having a 1-frame timing to block a fake-but-not-fake crossup is not strategy. Either have it be a crossup, or don't.

8. Dan's Legendary Taunt should give him full Super upon completion. AKA: He ends up right back where he was essentially.

9. Hakan's Oil Dive needs to be buffed so it's actually useful.

#69
Dragonite said on January 23, 2013 at 5:52 p.m.

Geez, the naysayers really haven't got a f@cking clue, do they? The game lets you PICK which version of Super you want to play. Have you all forgotten? If you think v2012 is fine as is and there shouldn't be more characters, stick with it. YOU DON'T NEED TO PLAY A NEW UPDATE.

#70
Aluppoj said on January 23, 2013 at 5:53 p.m.

And content or leave it alone.

1) Alex
2) Hugo
3) Rolento
4) Elena
5) Poison

6) OMG Please Mike Haggar! (Final Fight Trio Complete!)
Balance for the new cast.

Followed by a classic stage pack! (Like a COD map pack)

The only thing i can think of would be to slightly nerf cammy, mabey nerf some of the cross ups too, but other than that, the game is pretty well balanced.

gtfopanda said on January 23, 2013 at 5:59 p.m.

Are people seriously asking for *nerfs* to characters?!

Why would you make character less rewarding and interesting, in what is arguably one the most balanced fighting game in recent years?

Fei got shredded in 2012; Akuma is getting nerfs only since SSF4 and Infiltration is the only one winning with him becase he's godlike and could win the friggin' HAKAN; for Seth to be effective you gotta be the damn Poongko; Cammy has her fair share of bad matchups; Viper got his ridiculous damage adjusted; and the list goes on and on.

Ask for damn buffs to other characters or simply to unlock tools which haven't been used yet (every character in the game has normals, if not even specials which are trash), instead of ruining people's hard work (setups) and create retarded stuff like what happened with Yang.

@ #69

You're free to Seths or what?

His DP already got nerfed and that was huge, the moment you take him away the best DP in the game invinciblity wise the guy will just melt.

And I hope everyone realizes this: if 2013 comes, they're gonna recycle stuff from SFxT.

Forget about any new content, it's gonna be characters like Elena, Poison and Hugo, only adjusted to fit SF4 engine.

#76
clustercannon said on January 23, 2013 at 6 p.m.

#59 clearly impossible for the game speed increase. 'cuz that means the frame data of some moves will also change.

GuVna360 said on January 23, 2013 at 6 p.m.

"7. Remove 'unblockabes'. Having a 1-frame timing to block a fake-but-not-fake crossup is not strategy. Either have it be a crossup, or don't."

I think that's a big thing they need to address.

Also I'd like them to update the trials. Having trials are basically a tutorial for combos etc and how a character works, & having trials that are phased out 2 versions later but still in the mode is just stupid, not to mention 4 characters don't even have trials which is unfair to the new AE cast members!

I know it's probably not a big deal to you pros but back when SSFIV came out that was the main way I learned how to play, & im sure it's where alot of newcomers first go to get to understand, and even start to enjoy the game

/rant

also, add a local tournament mode for competition, think that would be a nice give back to the community :)

#82
clustercannon said on January 23, 2013 at 6:08 p.m.

#78 fools. unblockables are technologies that you need to apply. I think everyone has one, even hakan or dan or t.hawk. don't ask for a nerf that is clearly based on the player's skill. unblockables are hard to time, but it is very rewarding. and if your opponent has godlike reactions or just damn good, he might even block it.

@82- The characters share most of the same wireframe animations, so it's really just a matter of applying the turnaround to the models.

But yes, Alex is a must have for this game. Not including him with the rest of the SF3 characters is just stupid.

If they're going to do another update please lose the "Super" in the title there has been too many. SSF4, SSF4 AE, SSF4 AE 2012, and now possibly SSF4 AE 2012? I'd rather wait on a completely new SF if it's just gonna be another "Super" i'd say it's ran it's course I sold my console because how stale the fighters had become.

The same people screaming for updates and new characters will be the same ones complaining about it not being balanced.

AE 2012 doesn't need an update right now. Sure there's characters that are really good(Cammy, Akuma,Fei Long) but they're not unbeatable. It just means you have to step your game up and learn the matchup. Some of you people are acting like Cammy and Akuma are Storm and Magneto from MvC2. Let's wait until after this upcoming Evo to talk about updates.

This game needs a nice Juicy update not just to balance but to everything. New online modes and update the netcode. just straight up polish the game. I honestly don't want new characters though because that would only mean more balancing to them because they WILL need tunning sooner or later when people figure out the character

CAMMY!(IN ALL FREAKING CAPS)

No, they do not break the game, but they are a bit overpowered compared to the other characters. These characters for sure need the most attention in the nerf department. BRING ON THE UPDATE ONO!!!!
