PC Street Fighter X Tekken DLC character news likely by the end of the week, CvS2 port a couple months off

PC Street Fighter X Tekken DLC character news likely by the end of the week, CvS2 port a couple months off PC gamers hoping for news about the DLC characters in Street Fighter X Tekken shouldn't have to wait long, as Capcom's Christian Svensson said news is likely to be out before the end of the week, and they'd have some good things to share about the price point they'd be offered at, too.

He also delved into the PS2 re-release of Capcom vs SNK 2 saying it's a couple of months off, but it's cleared some channels in regards to emulation testing, and the digital sales team is working on locking down a date.

Here's a transcript of notable details from the live Ask Capcom session that was held today, hit the jump to check out the video archive.

• Svensson apologized for the very long delay on the PC Street Fighter X Tekken patches. He said the character DLC update should be out by the end of this week, and a significant short term price point will be available as well. Details will be announced soon.

• The digital survey was "hugely successful from my stand point," Svensson said. There were over 64,000 respondents in six days. There was some very good feedback that was actionable, but he didn't elaborate on what this pertains to. Results from the survey are being shared pretty broadly with senior management and are being factored in to product planning for the digital market.

• When asked about updates to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 — which came up constantly throughout the session — the guys said, "It kills us to not be able to talk about some things. Trust me, we know you want to know answers, and there's things we'd love to tell you, but... " they have rules they have to abide by. They didn't confirm anything one way or the other, they're simply saying that they wish they could share details, but they cannot because of the rules in place.

• The Capcom vs. SNK 2 re-release of the PS2 version is a couple of months off, as the digital sales team is trying to secure a date. The good news is it has passed a few channels at SCEA in the emulation testing. It's in the process of being worked on for North and South America. This is a straight port of the PS2 version.

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

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.
