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.

Over 300 comments! I think that says it all, Capcom. Now the team have finished up SFxT 2013 start getting them to work on AE 2013! ^ ^

I never really realized how nerdy some of you are.
Some of you not only jumped to conclusions but you have your hopes so high up your own ass it's smothering you.

Add this character, add that character. Nerf this guy, nerf that guy.

Relax man.

Original Canadian street fighter

Nash, Karin, buff Oni, DO IT

evolkid said on January 24, 2013 at 3:30 p.m.

Need to bring back championship mode!

jelaninoel said on January 24, 2013 at 3:33 p.m.

Please no more 3S char. All this game does is ruin them with its all ass 3D models

Man, you're so retro cool..... (Rolls eyes)

Raven said on January 24, 2013 at 3:41 p.m.

I have been very loud on twitter about updating SF and that many people want it, YES!

My wishes are, more characters, a few tweaks, and more stages.

1) Like 3 new stages at least.

2) 3 characters from third strike and alpha: My personal list would be Karin/Rolento/Birdie (or Sodom) and Elena/Alex/Hugo (or Oro/Necro). I definitely want another update.

Eye_of_Orochi said on January 24, 2013 at 3:45 p.m.

I play Sakura and Ken from time to time and they can be fun to play...but what I'm saying is enough is enough and diversifying with other fan favorites will draw in more players/draw players back, which is part of what updated versions try to accomplish. Watering down the cast with even more characters 80% similar to each other is boring and lazy.

I can see Capcom nerfing Cammy, but then adding Juli or Juni based off of her model and making one of them even better than Cammy ever was. That would be a hilarious troll on Capcom's part.

MingoDynasty said on January 24, 2013 at 4:42 p.m.

online training mode

VanCityPlayboy said on January 24, 2013 at 4:53 p.m.

sorry I'm late but yes, Pretty PLEASE add Alex and some more characters to this game and more stages

HiryuMK said on January 24, 2013 at 5:22 p.m.

Charlie with different enough normals to make him not a clone of Guile.
Urien.
Sodom.

Eye_of_Orochi said on January 24, 2013 at 5:29 p.m.

# 308

Yes, because the balance of that game did them SO much more justice.

KAPPA

Gurpwnder said on January 24, 2013 at 5:34 p.m.

My main gripe with SSF4 at the moment is the homogeneous damage values on most characters' normals. I think this is the reason why Cammy is such a huge threat. In CVS2, characters like Geese and Rugal had medium attacks that were as powerful as Sakura and Cammy's heavy attacks, yet Cammy and Sakura are higher on the tier list.

TaurusMAGNUS said on January 24, 2013 at 6:07 p.m.

Just buff Yang!!... Please!? :(

@sarif2soon:

You STFU, fag! SFIV plays closer to the Alpha series than the III series.
Add the rest of the Alpha cast, Capcom!

lukecage83 said on January 24, 2013 at 7:06 p.m.

@304 you can STFU as well. What's wrong with people sharing their thoughts on what they'd
Like to see in their favorite game. And further more, you know damn well you would have suggestions
If capcom asked you personally. Tryin' to be cool - shut up!

bagel_bytez said on January 24, 2013 at 9:36 p.m.

Huge comment section. I really hate rekkas but I was devastated when sodom didn't make the sfxt cut, he was even teased in the neon lights during the trailer days. I would rekka all day if sodom made it, also there is 2 perfect slots so I they wanted to do a yun yang easy 2 for 1 character design they should do Juni and juli

VanCityPlayboy said on January 24, 2013 at 9:48 p.m.

either reveal those 2 hidden characters are or just leave the game alone

Aluppoj said on January 24, 2013 at 11:21 p.m.

@322

VanCityPlayboy in da hooooouse!!

Give us ALEX or give us DEATH!!! Reveal the flaming man!

TehTy said on January 24, 2013 at 11:28 p.m.

It would be nice to see a new character or two added to break the meta, but otherwise, it's completely unneeded. AE is balanced enough as it is.

Sasuga said on January 25, 2013 at 12:54 a.m.

^ Agreed. New characters and stages: ok. But no rebalancing. It's fine the way it is. And changing the balance in a fighting game to much is never good.

kuiper_felt said on January 25, 2013 at 1:30 a.m.

@ 304

Hipster Alert!!!

6748 said on January 25, 2013 at 1:40 a.m.

first of all to all the people complaining about akuma get over it he doesn't need nurfs actually in fact as a boss char he needs buffs same for seth, bison and sagat but when we have stupid chars like sakura and makoto taking more damage than sagat and other boss chars then this is when the game becomes trully retarded boss chars should be boss chars if ur going to complain about it learn the game
and please ono add championship mode!!!! is miss it i wub it
and karin i just want my karin and it would be awesome to have urien but gill man gill would be awesome but if they add gill they will ruin him retardly like seth and not boss char status

OvrZealous said on January 25, 2013 at 2:03 a.m.

Seriously, who wouldnt appreciate another update to SF4? I know it's been a while since its release but truth is that it's still widely popular. It just makes sense. Sure, a lot of people dont like the idea and some of us that do might not end up liking it once it happens (nerfs/bugs/ect.) but once time passes everyone will of just adapted to it anyways. And it's not like if the update ends up having something game-breaking Capcom will just let it die.

Bigall said on January 25, 2013 at 2:49 a.m.

One amazing about SF4. While Capcom insists in doing DLC for new games, which almost everyone condems. Everyone would love to see a new paid DLC with new characters for SF4.
I hope that Capcom understands this and jump to this opportunity to prolong the SF4 experience. They will make money and the players will be happy. That's how DLC must work and that's why SF4 is such a gem...

PS: No freaking gem system please.

BamDigga said on January 25, 2013 at 3:14 a.m.

championship mode was great , .. i would play all day again :-/

lukecage83 said on January 25, 2013 at 4:27 a.m.

@ 329 - don;t jinx it, dog! lol - I'd be outraged if they put in SxT's gems system lol

sarif2soon said on January 25, 2013 at 4:34 a.m.

@304
if our hopes and expectations weren't so high, capcom wouldn't have to work so hard.
@319
lol, calm down.

ShinAkiraDesu said on January 25, 2013 at 6:13 a.m.

I think they should come out of a new version with more characters, stages, and other things like idk. Tekken styled international language track. But for characters, new characters would be really nice as well as ol faves like alex, urian, and karin.

Creation_Scapes said on January 25, 2013 at 8:25 a.m.

at this point any kind of update they decide on is welcome.

Bigall said on January 25, 2013 at 10:55 a.m.

To be fair they would have to had at least 6 new characters. We want more of course.
If I had to choose, my choice for the 6 characters would be: Urian, Elena, Karin, R.Mika, Skullomania (if not possible Alex) and Rolento!

lukecage83 said on January 25, 2013 at 4:58 p.m.

@bigall: sucks that we will never see any EX characters, as they are not owned by Capcom
(And we all know Capcom and licensing). Skullomania was the only character i liked in that
Crap game lol. I really would like to see Charlie return more than any other
Character because he's too coo fa skoo!

Sunforged_One said on January 26, 2013 at 3:32 a.m.

Hype9000! O.O

yaboiman said on January 26, 2013 at 8:30 a.m.

KARIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

superray21 said on January 26, 2013 at 9:01 a.m.

Bring in Urien and buff Juri!

Imonk036 said on January 26, 2013 at 5:05 p.m.

Ain't it a bit late for an update. As long as they don't put those gems from SfxT, I'm cool with it!

harrymcdowell said on January 27, 2013 at 1:48 a.m.

Maybe he actually means a new game in the series or a spin off. Doesnt necessarily mean an update to this iteration based on his tweet.

VanCityPlayboy said on January 27, 2013 at 5:16 a.m.

#85 Dragonite> you hit the nail right on the head, ditto, Alex is a must have for this game for sure

VanCityPlayboy said on January 27, 2013 at 5:23 a.m.

Aluppoj> yes Give us Alex and PLEASE reveal the flaming man being burned by Dhalsim, it's been past 2 years and nothing has been confirmed yet

evilgouken said on January 27, 2013 at 6:30 a.m.

if u cant make a better gouken, get him out of the game

RambroCampAlot said on January 28, 2013 at 6:30 a.m.

safe condor dive + faster start up frames for dp - blanka = perfect game

p.s no urein, less upward fire balls would be nice

lukecage83 said on January 28, 2013 at 11:57 a.m.

@341:

347 comments should tell you otherwise...

@346:

THAT, and give Hawk the ability to FADC out of DP, and I'm cool!

dudicle said on January 30, 2013 at 3:33 p.m.

REMATCH BUTTON on endless mode. that is all.

JIHADJOE said on January 31, 2013 at 7:45 a.m.

VANILLA SAGAT! Kreygasm

wonzan said on January 31, 2013 at 12:20 p.m.

the number of posts on this story goes to show how much people want a 2013 update SF4 lol

SouthParkMex said on February 1, 2013 at 1:23 a.m.

I just wish that if capcom updates SSF..they would make the game more violent and the stages more dark, something like Asura's Wrath...like for mature audiences!!! Thanks

ovipositor said on February 1, 2013 at 3:09 a.m.

I'm firmly in the "more characters, music and/or stages and leave everything else as is" camp. Totally agree with the rematch button comment also.

yaboiman said on February 1, 2013 at 4:06 a.m.

karin!!!!!!!!!

Sasuga said on February 1, 2013 at 7:22 a.m.

Hey if SFxT is not getting the street fighter alpha grass stage, bring it to AE.

I don't mind new characters but please no more buffs/nerfs.

Bring_Back_Charlie said on February 1, 2013 at 9:02 a.m.

1. Nerf Cammy's unblockable set-ups.
2. Fix Yun and Yang.
3. Add Alex, Eagle, Birdie, Elena,and Charlie. R. Mika too.
4. Buy Character rights from Akira.
5. Bring back Cracker Jack from Ex Plus Alpha.
6. Add aerial focus attacks or blocks.

U4iA27 said on February 2, 2013 at 2:33 a.m.

Fuk updating this game and start working on sf5 already.all that talk of not having to wait another 10 year's for a NEW sf and come July we'll already be half way there. Sf4 has 4 games already.time to move on to new ideas, and more importantly a faster sf!

RagingDemon said on February 2, 2013 at 1:50 p.m.

I don't know why people want more characters... 39 characters isn't enough for a one-on-one game? I'd understand if you guys want more for a team based game, but for one-on-one... Too much work for balancing and such.

I think AE 2012 is fine enough as it is... At least I think so. I honestly don't want to spend more money for another iteration of the same game.

CMass said on February 3, 2013 at 8:05 a.m.

Urien. Urien. Urien.

godfist314 said on February 3, 2013 at 11:38 a.m.

#357 Well with SF x Tekken and Ultimate MvC3 having like 50 characters each, Street Fighter 4 having a mere 40 is outdated. I don't need more characters myself, 40 characters is more than plenty.

VanCityPlayboy said on February 3, 2013 at 11:43 p.m.

Yes I should say give Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu and Oni Akuma Trials and Rival Cut-Scenes and if they do add new characters they better have trials and cut-scenes as well and rematch button on Endless mode also Gallery mode like Vanilla Street Fighter 4

Timcrock said on February 4, 2013 at 12:26 a.m.

please ono
1.new characters
2.new stages
3.new game modes(surviaval, tournament...)
1+2+3=great update

AquaticPear said on February 4, 2013 at 9:59 a.m.

They need to put like 10 more characters in the game. It's a fantastic game so just blow it out with tons of characters mayn!

feiryuken8 said on February 4, 2013 at 11:36 a.m.

Shadowloo Charlie and Karin!

jme said on February 4, 2013 at 4:09 p.m.

People asking for urien, you gotta think about how he would work. I want urien too but.....how the hell would he be able to shoot out 2 reflectors?

_benzoape_ said on February 6, 2013 at 4:28 p.m.

URIEN !!!!!!!!!!! please! and give blankas vanilla hops back and lk. up ball invincibility on the 4 frame start up!take damage down to 80 or 90 tho.

_benzoape_ said on February 6, 2013 at 4:44 p.m.

if u think about it tho... every time more characters were added they have had to come back and fix shizzz.

MORE STAGES/COSTUMES/ONLINE TRAINING MODE/etc

and obvious buffs...

last patch and DONE!!

VanCityPlayboy said on February 11, 2013 at 5:31 a.m.

If it's gonna be AE V.2013 I hope the update is sometime in 2013 but if the udpate is in mid to late 2013 (July - December 2013) it might as well be AE V.2014

ednine said on March 6, 2013 at 7:19 p.m.

fingers crossed for a lot of new stages, and the rest of the sf3 characters..please mr Ono, include them al, most of us miss them a lot

CrabNdumplin said on April 3, 2013 at 6:25 a.m.

I would like to see the inclusion of the following -->
More stages(preferably remodelled from the older titles (SF3 and Alpha)
Alex from SF3(Alex deserves a spot in this game,he was SF3 protagonist right???)
Hugo from SF3( Gigas breaker-need I say more!)
R.Mika and Birdie from the Alpha series/
AE trial mode for the new characters...
