Footage of the newly added secret boss in Street Fighter X Mega Man and how to encounter him

Footage of the newly added secret boss in Street Fighter X Mega Man and how to encounter him Street Fighter X Mega Man just recently received a v2 patch that featured multiple bug fixes and added a new boss character battle. To avoid spoiling things for some readers, the footage will be placed after the jump in this story.

In order to encounter this new boss, the player must score 4 perfect victories against the bosses in the M. Bison stages. If done successfully, the secret boss will appear before you face M. Bison.

Wr194t has uploaded the battle with this character and recommends using an Energy Tank right before defeating each boss in order to get the perfect.

Sven had higher sales expectations for Marvel vs. Capcom Origins than it's tracked to, still a lot they can do to drive more

Sven had higher sales expectations for Marvel vs. Capcom Origins than it's tracked to, still a lot they can do to drive more Sales on Marvel vs. Capcom Origins, the compilation title which has both Marvel vs. Capcom 1 and Marvel Super Heroes, hasn't sold up to Christian Svensson's expectations so far, he said recently via the Capcom Forums. The title was released on Sept. 25, 2012 for $14.99 USD.

Svensson added that there's still a lot more Capcom can do to drive sales, though, so things may turn around for that particular game.

Christian also talked about the decision to not include trials and add four playable characters instead of three, into Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. There's no word on which fighter would have been omitted if they added trials, Evil Ryu, Oni, Yang or Yun, but it does show how much effort goes into some of these other modes Capcom works on.

Jonny: When will Marvel vs. Capcom Origins 2 be released? Did Marvel vs. Capcom Origins sell very well?

Svensson: No plans for additional titles at this time. I'd had higher expectations for MvC:O than it's tracking to. That said, it's still early days and there's lots we can still do to drive sales.

Rafa: Why didn't Capcom implement trials for Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu and Oni in SSF4 AE?

Svensson: It was asked several times years ago when AE first came out.

The reasons if I recall were primarily schedule and budget driven. The option was to go for four characters instead of three with trials. It was felt there was more value in an additional character rather than the trials.

Darkstalkers Resurrection - Demitri and Morrigan bio and move set videos from Capcom

Combofiend has posted two new videos over on Capcom-Unity detailing Darkstalkers Resurrection character bio's and move sets.

Today features Demitri and Morrigan. Hit the jump to see the other bio and video.


Demitri Maximoff was once one of the most influential nobles in the demon realm of the Makai. However, being ever-thirsty for power, Demitri challenged the ruler of the demons Belial Aensland. Belial easily defeated him and, as a lesson to all would-be usurpers, exiled the wounded Demitri and his castle to the light of the human world.

For one hundred years, Demitri hid in his castle, regaining his strength. He preyed upon adventurers who wandered into his castle, feasting upon their blood and making them serve him. He continued waiting until his strength was recovered enough that he could walk in broad daylight with no ill effects. Having waited over a century, Demitri was ready to again make his claim to the throne of the Makai, and get revenge on the whole of House Aensland.

Darkstalkers Resurrection will feature ping filtering tool for online match making

Darkstalkers Resurrection will feature ping filtering tool for online match making Capcom detailed some of the match making options that will be available in Darkstalkers Resurrection, with one of the most notable items being a ping filtering tool, which can be adjusted between 0 to 300. Note that setting your ping to 100 latency would match you up with opponents with a 0.1 second delay, or less.

This option has been requested a number of times by the community, and it's nice to see it make its way into a Capcom fighting game.

There's a ranking point filtering system as well, similar to what was in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012, which lets you look for all opponents who are close to your ranking point total. There's also the standard region setting, so it's easier to find people who are in your area, and therefore hook up with players who have faster ping times.

Over 60,000 people responded to Capcom's digital survey, Sven said results were 'very telling'

Over 60,000 people responded to Capcom's digital survey, Sven said results were 'very telling' Capcom received over 60,000 responses to their digital survey they ran back in late December 2012. Christian Svensson noted that the results were "very telling" and that it should give the company a prioritized list of things to tackle.

He noted that conveniently enough, fan feedback coincided with things they've been pushing for. Because digital titles take a year or more to make, and a couple of months to greenlight, Svensson added that fans shouldn't expect to hear news in the short term — but they already have some digital titles in the works which will be announced some time in 2013.

Josh: In your opinion what will Capcom Japan think of the digital survey results?

Svensson: I think the breadth of feedback we received was fantastic (more than 60K respondents) and I think Japan will think the same. So thanks everyone for taking the time.

The data collected was very telling and in my opinion easily gives a prioritized list of things I think we should do (conveniently enough, many of them are things we've been pushing for for a while). My next task is to convince the gatekeepers in Japan with the data (which they have in their possession) and ensure what we're working on fits with the complete digital strategy for the company.

Games of this sort take a couple months to greenlight and usually a year or more to make, so again, to set expectations, please don't expect any new news being driven from this survey in the short term. That said, we do have games already in development in this segment, some of which you'll hear about a bit later in the year.

Free Street Fighter X Mega Man patch expected early next month, Sven discusses the rarity of Capcom's involvement in a fan-made game

Free Street Fighter X Mega Man patch expected early next month, Sven discusses the rarity of Capcom's involvement in a fan-made game The Capcom forums have been quite active recently with users fielding their questions about various subjects, specifically Street Fighter X Mega Man glitches and getting Capcom's cooperation on other fan-made games. First up, Brelston mentioned that we can expect to see a free V2 patch for SFxMM early next month that will address some of the issues brought up by a Capcom forum user below.

1. If you lock your computer or close your screen with game running the video doesn't want to come back. You have to close the game and restart. I think it's an issue with your computer needing to refresh the screen.

2. If you get killed at the same time as you kill the last boss in the boss rush you can't re-enter their tube. You are stuck in the level. I'm not sure if this is a problem with any boss during boss rush or if it's just the last boss you fight.

3. The top of ladders don't seem to want you to grab them. Some full jumps are awkward.

4. Esc key should have a yes or no menu to safely close the game. I've exited on accident a couple times.

5. (Not really a issue since I don't do it, but) Urien can be easily killed by pausing game with mine sweeper explosion over him.

Brelston: Thanks for the notes. We're working on a V2 that should address some of these issues. Goal is to get it out to everyone early January, free as usual :)

If Capcom vs. SNK 3 happens it won't be soon - PC SFxT players may have 'interesting news' regarding price of DLC characters

If Capcom vs. SNK 3 happens it won't be soon - PC SFxT players may have 'interesting news' regarding price of DLC characters Capcom continues to say a Capcom vs. SNK 3 title won't happen any time soon, this is despite the PS2 version of the game being re-released here in the states in the near future, along with Capcom Fighting Evolution.

All news wasn't bad though, at least if you happen to own the PC version of Street Fighter X Tekken, as Christian Svensson noted that they may have some "interesting news" for existing owners soon.

Adrian: Will Capcom vs. SNK 3 ever come out or SVC Chaos 2?

Svensson: Ever is such a very, very long time. I can say, if it happens, it won't be soon though.

Gohan16ken: Does Capcom Japan talk to Capcom USA? Even though I am excited to hear that Capcom vs. SNK 2 and Capcom Fighting Evolution will be re-release digitally as a PlayStation 2 classic, I am a little bewildered as to how it came about based on past comments.

Svensson: We communicate ALL the time, however the folks responsible for PS2 re-releases on PSN and Wii Virtual Console operate a bit separately from everything else. We don't have as clear communications as other areas of the business.

Ignss: Will the DLC characters for the PC version of Street Fighter X Tekken be free?

Svensson: Not free, but we'll have hopefully some interesting news for existing SFxT PC owners soon on that front.
