Jerecaine said on January 15, 2014 at 6:29 p.m.

IT's too early for SF5, DS4 IMO wouldnt do well, and Disney is being a--holes with Marvel. I chose CvS3 since it has the highest chance

Don't really want anything Street fighter related. I would like to see another Power Stone though. I only have the 1st one and the 2nd is hard to get.

#17

Keep in mind that voting for Street Fighter or Marvel means you think the game is drawn out and has reached the end of it's longevity (at least for you personally).

#23
General_Awesomo said on January 15, 2014 at 6:34 p.m.

You might wanna put in an option for a "Capcom Fighting All-Stars" kind of thing. This might be the best option, just Capcom characters. No licensing to deal with.

#24
Existent said on January 15, 2014 at 6:35 p.m.

Alpha 4. It's time.

#25
gohan16ken said on January 15, 2014 at 6:36 p.m.

Does Capcom sees all these polls you do or are these polls just for entertainment?

My advice to Capcom is to re-release all past SF and SF related games as a digital download either as PS classic or HD upgrade. And then stop focusing so much on the professional/tournament players. They are not game loyal (TTT2 and Injustice) and very stubborn (DOA5U and SFxTv2013).

So, my vote is re-release.

#26
Gotomaster said on January 15, 2014 at 6:36 p.m.

Capcom Allstarz.

We're the biggest website in the FGC, and read by a number of Capcom employees.

I can't promise they'll read this story, but I imagine at least some of their staff will see it. I also just tweeted it out to Ono.

If others tweet it out to him as well, it'll probably catch his attention.

#34
M1Punk said on January 15, 2014 at 6:41 p.m.

A 3vs3 Capcom All Stars fighter. I like the Marvel characters and all, but its not worth all the trouble its causing. This way Capcom can change/add whatever they want and support the game over a long period of time.

#35
Diablowarrior said on January 15, 2014 at 6:41 p.m.

Sf vs ki

#36
gigantor21 said on January 15, 2014 at 6:42 p.m.

A completely new game with no relation to any of their other fighters.
Doubt they have the guts to try a completely new fighting IP anymore, though. :/

#37
TheTechnoloG said on January 15, 2014 at 6:42 p.m.

I'd like MvC4 if they fix the roster and include a majority of actually good characters. Like Megaman and Gambit instead of Firebrand and She-Hulk. C'mon.

Can we please see a new Darkstalkers 4?

#42
Capcom_Warrior said on January 15, 2014 at 6:48 p.m.

I voted Alpha 4. I really would like to see the series return to more footsie based gameplay. The new generation of SF is great for it's own reasons but I would really love to see the return of Alpha Counters. It makes the game so much more fun to me. That's why I've became such a big fan of SFXT. It resembles the Alpha series the most. Plus they would be able to add all these characters that people are clamoring for like Karen and R. Mika.

awad1205 said on January 15, 2014 at 7:15 p.m.

Alpha 4 will probably be the most successful title at this time in the fighting game community. Bring back the 2D look but add the newest graphics PS4 and XB1 has to offer. We'll get the chance to see some classic alpha characters that we haven't seen in a sf title since the 90's. I would expect to see some old school stages brought back aswell. SFA4 would be best.

What?! hardly any love for Rival School! I loved all the supers and team supers, I never had soo much fun with a fighter in my life. And I would like a Power Stone game, that was a new kinda of fighting

#64
ZenRazor said on January 15, 2014 at 7:17 p.m.

A new MVC I only choose it because an All Star isn't here I would like Capcom to make their own game with MVC mechanics so they won't worry on asking Marvel for characters aside from that an alpha 4 would be nice fast paced Street Fighter

#65
A_Zero_2_Hero said on January 15, 2014 at 7:21 p.m.

Saturday Night Slam Masters 3!

The CWA has a more in-depth cast of grapplers like Alex, El Fuerte, R. Mika, Hugo etc. to play around with now. Besides it's finally time for Zangief and Haggar to wrassle it out for real once and for all.

#66
sagejonathan said on January 15, 2014 at 7:23 p.m.

Darkstalkers 4 or Alpha 4 but in super crispy 2d animation please.

#67
HooliganComboFTW said on January 15, 2014 at 7:25 p.m.

Rival School sequel because that game had a memorable cast of fighters and didn't take itself too seriously. Game was actually fun too. Near zero chance of sequel happening.

#68
MEGAMFIBLM said on January 15, 2014 at 7:25 p.m.

If at least can pick 2 options u_u (or put in they ''Red Earth/Warzard 2'') xD

SF A 4? Serously? The 3 was an excellent end for the alpha series .-.

Rival School 3.. That is pretty tentative I must say
MvC4... with a balancin patch on the UMvC3 is enough i think
SF 5.. I can wait for it a little more, but no more of 2 or 3 years

The only game that i can´t wait anymore is Capcom vs SNK 3, they NEED to do that game TT-TT

#69
SoftShocks said on January 15, 2014 at 7:25 p.m.

Im ready for a whole new fighting game series. New characters, story, mechanics etc. I really not want to be saying "man I can't wait for sf8 and mk17 and tekken 27." Ten years from now. Bring on something completely new.

lol, that's to much of a risk for Capcom because of their financial situation. Best option is to invest in something that is known, popular and demanded.

#90
oghaggard said on January 15, 2014 at 7:57 p.m.

To be fair, as much as I love RS, it's not quite the same kind of 2D mechanics as the other games. It's got a blend of SF and Tekken (lol) elements, though certainly very SF-ish in spirit.

#91
triplefierce said on January 15, 2014 at 8 p.m.

SF5. Capcom should focus on their flagship FG title to try to keep fighting games in the spotlight of ALL gamers. SF4 did a great job in reviving the genre, they should not wait until it is forgotten (again) by anyone outside the core fighting game audience.

All the other titles sound fantastic, but they are unlikely to gain as much attention as SF5 would. Capcom should be aiming for 5 and doing all that they can to grow the genre.

I know how biased this will sound, but I really do believe FG's could ( and should) be just as big as RTS' and that is less likely to happen w/ a new Darkstalker's or Rival Schools.

#92
Smorgasboard said on January 15, 2014 at 8:03 p.m.

Something new that will redefine the fighting game genre. Hmm, both this article and my comment feels like de ja vu.

#93
cadnexus said on January 15, 2014 at 8:03 p.m.

Like people are saying, where's the Capcom vs Capcom option. I would love to see that title more than the rest on that list. Also where's the Marvel Super Heroes 2 option that would be cool as well if Marvel want them to do another game. However, Capcom vs Capcom needs to be part of that list.

Edit: Why do people care about Street Fighter Alpha 4, it's just the same thing all over again......Street Fighter. SF5 would be the better thing than Alpha (they are both just street fighter). Yeah I know there's a few "minor" different strategies and gimmicks Alpha has, but that can be put into Street Fighter you dig

Alpha 4 hands down! In this even a question?

#98
oghaggard said on January 15, 2014 at 8:15 p.m.

Capcom is not going to win many new customers/fans with sequels. I think they're going to go for a brand-new IP. Perhaps something that can both keep the competitive scene happy while offering something for the single-player/super-casual demographic. I'm just hoping they learned from their mistake (gems, gems, gems) with SFxTK.

#99
oghaggard said on January 15, 2014 at 8:17 p.m.

That said, I'd like to see a Darkstalkers 4 with next-gen cel-shaded graphics a la Guilty Gear Xrd.
