Ono tweets about EVO 2013 announcement for the Street Fighter 4 series

Posted by Nicholas 'MajinTenshinhan' Taylor • July 4, 2013 at 7:08 a.m. PDT
In a recent tweet, Yoshinori Ono, the producer of the Street Fighter 4 series, confirms what he has been teasing for a long time, namely that there will be an announcement for the series at EVO 2013. While the tweet itself doesn't really tell us what the announcement will be, a picture was included which you can find below. See the tweet below, and the picture after the jump.

Hit the jump to check out the photo.

Perhaps there is a hint hidden in this folder, branding the Street Fighter II Championship Edition logo? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Thanks to SameH99 for the news tip.

Huh... I wonder if that means the return of Championship mode? I may be looking a little far into things, but I've been looking forward to the return of that mode for so long... I remember that mode really improving my skill and helping me to find my mains!

I thought something would already be announced at CEO?

Anyway i hope its about either v2014, CvS3, SFa4 or SF5. I couldn't care less about marvel

Don't forget to bring prizes for winners of your games Capcom! Last year Warner Bros awarded Perfect Legend with an awesome belt for winning MK. Since umvc3 and SFIV are the two main titles I would expect Capcom to come to the show not empty handed. An idea would be to award the winner of SFIV and umvc3 with the statues they have on sale.

This isn't Championship Edition, but The New Challengers... Maybe new characters?

SSFIV: Championship Edition (SSFIV:CE)
Free update for current gen.

Next gen edition will be a re-release with exclusive new characters & stages and fully utilizing the social and community aspect of next gen gaming implemented within the console. This will cost you bison monies however.

You heard it here 1st :P

Madmax77 said on July 4, 2013 at 7:46 a.m.

I think the update are not for SF IV
but in order to do SF V
I was so hoping for something about Marvel !!!
of course we know a new Street Fighter is going to come out, they're not going to stop, we want news ! we want new games !!!

DarkRyu94 said on July 4, 2013 at 7:51 a.m.

Its probably going to be a SF4 update. (Im totally burned out on SF4) I just want something new from Capcom instead of an update or a grand reveal being a HD Compilation that is just some old games with some smoothed out sprites. The Last actual big fighting game we got was Street Fighter X Tekken which has kinda bled out. They are playing it far to safe with these HD Editions and updates to fighting games. Give us something we want to play like a Darkstalkers game or a Capcom VS SNK 3 or hell even a Capcom All Stars fighting game... I mean damn I would even take Star Gladiator 3 at this point

#25
thegoldencat said on July 4, 2013 at 7:52 a.m.

Championship Edition it is then. At least it'll be easier to abbreviate.

@25 Give it a little more time. The new consoles are coming out. It's better they keep supporting what's out now on current consoles, and take the time to make the next fighters make the best use of the new hardware and features, especially the social streaming/sharing features, which are huge for fighters.

#33
ZaFuuru said on July 4, 2013 at 8:05 a.m.

The return of Championship Mode from SF IV vanilla

#34
DarkRyu94 said on July 4, 2013 at 8:07 a.m.

#33 I get that the new consoles and stuff are coming but right now we have no real Fighting Games (Minus KI on X1) coming for next gen. If Capcom came out and just laid the nuke down and was all "Capcom VS SNK 3 Febuary 2014 only on Next Gen systems" I would flip my table in excitement. Right now if your not a fan of KI or your not getting an X1 and are looking for a fighting game for next gen there is nothing to excite you. That's why I wanna see a new announcement since Street Fighter 4 series is now 5 years old (I have gone through school and college and still no SF5 xD) Im just bored of it, If they bring out something new then I will be happy but given the state of Capcom's announcements lately (DS HD, SF X Megaman and the update to SFxT 2013 update) I just know this will be a disappointment

jme said on July 4, 2013 at 8:09 a.m.

I'm almost certain this game is getting more than just petty balance changes. I don't think they'd hype it up so much if it was. v2012 wasn't even hyped up like this. When v2012 came they basically said "hmm, well here ya go play this". This gonna be some more stuff I can feel it.

Smorgasboard said on July 4, 2013 at 8:18 a.m.

Just keep updating SF until every character is in it. That's all people care about anyway.

Don't bother with cvs2. SNK characters are hardly played anyway so they won't miss anything.

Don't bother with Marvel either. They don't care about gameplay and just want whatever that is new and shiny.

#41
danny2times said on July 4, 2013 at 8:21 a.m.

yo peeps the folder clearly reads New challengers! get ready for hyper bomb! aegis reflector and a couple New characters! hype to the max!

@44 that would be really stupid

#49
wallie said on July 4, 2013 at 8:51 a.m.

My guesses
1. Super street fighter 4 championship edition will be the new name of the game.

2. 4 new characters Urien, Alex, Poison, Rolento

3.Champ edition will include a new championship mode similiar to sf4 vanilla, and an online training mode will be added

4. This will be the final update and there will be a teaser for the next game in the sf series (either SFA4, or sf5)

#50
tsgrimey said on July 4, 2013 at 8:54 a.m.

This will be an update to SF4. Returning characters, NEW characters, more stages, more modes. Take my money nowwwww.

#51
Anon said on July 4, 2013 at 9 a.m.

@5 Of course there will be new characters. They already have the character models and animations for the new SF that went into SFxT, and it makes perfect business sense to reuse them for this update.

#52
Yousend said on July 4, 2013 at 9:02 a.m.

Moves cannot be FADC'd on block. Please!

Darklurkr23 said on July 4, 2013 at 9:08 a.m.

It better be 2013 edition and nto some stupid SF2 remake AGIAN. Unless they add a nice 100 hr / 500 matches played trophy to SF2, then ...........i guess it' sok

#54
bahamutknightzero said on July 4, 2013 at 9:09 a.m.

My guesses:

1) Game is called Super Street Fighter 4 TURBO *instead of AE 2013*
2) New Challengers = new characters *Rolento, Poison, Hugo, R. Mika*

#55
streetfighterjoe said on July 4, 2013 at 9:16 a.m.

moar characters plz

#56
SuperTurboFinisher said on July 4, 2013 at 9:27 a.m.

Just speculation but...
The "new challengers" folder could be a hint of new characters in this version, since that's what SF2 did. Why else show a folder of this version SF2?

#57
disp said on July 4, 2013 at 9:27 a.m.

Don't get your hopes up for anything else than adjustments.

#58
edrigo said on July 4, 2013 at 9:33 a.m.

Anything with a name on it you have to pay for probably. If it has loads of features (new characters/stages) they could get away with it.

#59
OnegaiShimasu said on July 4, 2013 at 9:53 a.m.

So, new balances and 4 new characters added?

#60
GiBGUN said on July 4, 2013 at 9:55 a.m.

I would be slightly disappointed if we saw no new characters - Ono replied to someone showing him the Rolento port.

Ideally they should port every SF character in SFxT that's not already in the game, otherwise it's such a waste of an asset - it's pretty clear how many people would be up for buying more DLC for the SF4 series.

If they do just go for balance changes, well I hope that includes some new specials - so many people asked for Ryu's Joudan kick, and it was even mentioned in the Ayano blog or something similar. If they do that and then don't add it, that's almost a misleading move!

#61
Techtun said on July 4, 2013 at 10:03 a.m.

@63 Neither do I, it's already a decent sized roster and adding more characters is just going to upset the balance again.

#62
Santaclaus said on July 4, 2013 at 10:11 a.m.

@53 moves not being able to fadc on block is stupid! it has been explained many times that it is rediculous because it would mean the the entire game has to be rebalanced.

Jayson619 said on July 4, 2013 at 10:11 a.m.

Razberryclownsac said on July 4, 2013 at 10:51 a.m.

As much as I would love to see Alex and Urien, I doubt it will happen. If anything, they'll add in the xTekken characters: Rolento, Elena, etc. they could possibly add Karen because of the high demand for her, but I don't even know if that would happen.

#68
noob_blasta said on July 4, 2013 at 10:53 a.m.

@50 pretty much agree. Maybe not urien but I think all the sfxt characters will be imported.

#69
TheFeistyOne said on July 4, 2013 at 10:56 a.m.

im fine if elena, rolento and hugo get imported from sfxtk, i dont know about poison though. Is she popular?

#70
Razberryclownsac said on July 4, 2013 at 10:58 a.m.

@72 why not? All they have to do is port her over from SxT.

#71
Crazcar said on July 4, 2013 at 11:12 a.m.

Definitely hoping for new characters, even if it's just the 4 from SFxT. Few others wouldn't be so bad though. *cough* Q + Alex *cough*

@72 Well, she did get in SFxT in the first place, so she can't be 'that' unpopular. She just isn't used often since she's pretty weak, but I think her moveset would translate nicely into SF4.

cris25 said on July 4, 2013 at 11:25 a.m.

That's more likely a hint about the name, so it won't be called 2013 ou 2014.
If they change the name however, the possibility of new characters is really big.
Some turn offs:
- It's possible to remove one specific move ability of some specific character to FADC on block, but they won't remove this option to the entire cast.
- How throws and techs work won't change.
- Urien will not happen. He's just too similar to Seth, even with some moves being the same. That's like putting Fei in SFxT. (I know shotos are alike but you get the point).
- IF there are going to be any new characters, they won't be revealed at EVO. Just a teaser with a silhouette.

Anyway, HYPE IS ON!

#74
H_Magnus said on July 4, 2013 at 11:31 a.m.

Super Street Fighter IV Dash: Champion Edition

with New Challengers.

:D

#75
HooliganComboFTW said on July 4, 2013 at 11:34 a.m.

If they are adding new characters, highly likely it would be the SF characters that are exclusives in SFxT. Hope Alex or Karin makes the cut otherwise not gonna be too hype.

#62 Ryu doesn't learn the Joudan kick technique until SFIII. Ryu having the move in non canon games like MvC3 and SFxT is fine though.

star123us said on July 4, 2013 at 12:03 p.m.

I think it is going to be New CVS3....

The reason is quite simple....

Street fighter 2 was the first fighting game for Capcom...

and the championship 94... is king of fighters 94... the first SNK

dream match game(combine AOF, FF, and original) the purpose was like

having their fav SNK Char into one place for the championship...

SO... I hope it is going to be new CVS3...

BTW I remembered that SNK was hiring some programmers and designers for

the new KOF and SS series... I hope that is related to this tweet.

KOF Char in 3d SF4 style will be quite awesome...

#80
GreenDragon said on July 4, 2013 at 12:35 p.m.

Guys it's a SFIV update this has been said SEVERAL times by Capcom. It's not SFV or a VS or DS title.

#81
rakuko said on July 4, 2013 at 12:39 p.m.

Super Street Fighter 4 Turbo would be awesome. play as versions of all characters and find out who is the true top tier! will it be Vanilla Sagat, Super Honda/Cammy, AE Twins, or Akuma at any point of the game?!

#82
Rumrunner said on July 4, 2013 at 12:51 p.m.

A turbo feature is the 1 thing that would make AE more fun and skillful at the same time. It's the 5th version. Can Ono cater to the hardcore with this one?

I wouldn't mind getting rid of auto-correct too.

#83
Freeyu said on July 4, 2013 at 1:02 p.m.

I'd be happy with a few new moves for my character and sf2 stages everything else is just bonus.

#84
Rumrunner said on July 4, 2013 at 1:15 p.m.

After looking at the pic, that's Super. That's when they added the final 4 of SF2 and had the linkable cabs for tournament mode.

Which tells me they dropped the ball on a turbo edition. Stupid.

SF2:Turbo and SSF2:Turbo were the most popular and respected versions of SF2 but...no...that wouldn't work on Sf4. We need that slow scrubby stuff:/

#85
Jaaj301 said on July 4, 2013 at 1:23 p.m.

@76
Why not Urien? Sure he's similar to Seth, but not that much if you think about it. Plus, Aegis Reflector as his Ultra would make him extremely unique.

#86
DevilMaySpy said on July 4, 2013 at 2:12 p.m.

Championship Edition? I have no clue. But with what we learned 5 months ago, it's not hard at all to import SF X T exclusive characters to AE. Give the people Elena and Poison.

#87
Dragonite said on July 4, 2013 at 2:31 p.m.

The only thing a sfv could do would be taking sfiv and adding every character in it. But aside from performance, a minor graphic update and modes the game would play similarly. Unless they've taken my suggestion and added Moses that affect the game to your style- iii mode gives you parry's and supers. Ii mode gives you extra random damage and 10 percent faster walk speeds. Alpha mouse gives you air blocks and alpha counters that deplete super meter. And ask these styles could fight each other. 3 dudley vs 2 ryu.

That's my sfv - not just redoing the graphics for newbs who get bored.

Typed on my phone so ... Mistakes. Ignore please.

Just add all the characters from Capcom side except megaman in SFXT to SF4 to save them from dying with SFXT plus add Vanilla modes.

Please Just add

Alex, Gill, Necro, Sodom, Haggar , R. Mika, Karin, Birdie, Eagle and please INGRID.

JUST MAKE THIS THE ULTIMATE STREET FIGHTER GAME!!!

#99
Oculus_Orbis said on July 4, 2013 at 9:37 p.m.

The title on the slipcover:

"Super Street Fighter II
Champion Ship '94"

FUN FACT: It was an official American tournament back in the day.
It also happened to be where they revealed a beta version of SSF2X-Grand Master Challenge, for the 1st time.

Translation: SUPER STREET FIGHTER IV TURBO

EVO is gonna be hype as hell.
