Last weekend, Ono mentioned that Capcom is looking to announce the balance changes for the Street Fighter 4 update some time around this year's EVO. In the first Tweet below, he hints that we will be seeing a Street Fighter related announcement at EVO 2013.

Capcom expects to announce balance changes to Street Fighter 4 around the time of EVO 2013 - Ono wants online edition of CvS2 on XBL

Capcom expects to announce balance changes to Street Fighter 4 around the time of EVO 2013 - Ono wants online edition of CvS2 on XBL Capcom expects to announce the balance changes for the next version of Street Fighter 4 around the time of this year's EVO, which is taking place from July 12-14, 2013.

Ono doesn't say specifically that they'll be announcing the changes at EVO, just around that time.

Yoshinori had a few other interesting Tweets, which weren't in Japanese, that have been included below, most notably that he'd like to see an online edition of Capcom vs. SNK 2.

FlagshipFighter: I really need CVS2: Online Edition for XBLA! PLEASE!

Ono: I want it too!! I'll request to CAPCOM JAPAN team about it.

What do you think about SSF4 Arcade Edition v2013?

SF team develop and research for next AE12. We'll be making preparation announce for it in soon. ;D

Roob320: Anything cool going to be announced at E3?

Ono: I can't say for it... ;P

Yoshinori Ono tweets about going to E3 this year, tweeting a lot about Street Fighter lately

Our favourite old trickster, Mr. Yoshinori Ono, has been tweeting about appearing at E3 this year. Mostly known for being the man behind the Street Fighter 4 series and Street Fighter X Tekken, Ono has also been reported to be helping out with Capcom titles Remember Me and the still very mysterious title "Deep Down", shown during Sony's PS4 announcement back in February.

While it is likely that his tweets may have something to do with "Deep Down", this may also be perfect timing for Capcom to flesh out details regarding the the Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition update that is currently being worked on. You'll find his somewhat uninformative tweets below.


While these tweets may mean nothing, it's worth noting that Ono has recently been posting a lot of tweets related to Street Fighter, which might point to something good for fighting game fans at E3 — only time will tell.

Sven: I think we'll see less 'straight ports' in the digital space in the future - update on PSN CvS2 and more

Sven: I think we'll see less 'straight ports' in the digital space in the future - update on PSN CvS2 and more Capcom will likely be shying away from doing what they termed as 'straight ports' of fighting games in the future, Christian Svensson said on the official Capcom forums. He noted that feedback from their December digital survey, plus a recent trend in sales, has shown them that fans don't want just 'straight ports' of their titles, like how Darkstalkers Resurrection and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, among others, turned out.

Subjects covered also include updates of digital versions of their fighters on PSN, including Capcom vs. SNK 2, PC sales numbers and if Tatsunoko vs. Capcom will see an e-Shop release. Hit the jump to read everything.

R.Case: I heard that you are going to slow down on making HD ports of fighting games, so does that mean you might try and look into doing HD ports of other genres and franchises?

Svensson: I'd think "straight ports" we'll see less of in the digital space in the future. That was one of the key points we took away in the verbatims of the digital survey we did in December (and what our recent sales trends are telling us too).

Beyond that, I'm not prepared to provide additional details at this time.

Christian Svensson talks fighting game ports for other platforms and why pros get early releases of their games

Christian Svensson talks fighting game ports for other platforms and why pros get early releases of their games In regards to the slowing sales of newer fighting game rereleases and ports from Capcom, one user at Capcom-Unity suggested that they try releasing the games to more platforms, instead of just the Xbox 360 and PS3.

Christian Svensson replied to this post, and gave insight as to why Capcom is not interested in releasing their titles, like Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike Online Edition and Darkstalkers Resurrection for PC or other potential platforms.

I have considered it but there's considerable overlap in platform ownership such that the effort to revisit work as a rerelease is not likely to cover the costs of development.

In general, staggered releases that can't get some critical mass of marketing behind them do not work.

Hit the jump to hear the reasoning behind pros getting early copies of the games.

Capcom's Remember Me will feature Street Fighter moves as pre-order bonus

The pre-order bonuses for Capcom's upcoming Science Fiction title, Remember Me, have been divulged over on Steam. Players who order the game in advance will receive a set of combo attacks that share the names of special moves from the Street Fighter franchise.

As seen in the image below, the 3 combo attacks that will be awarded to those who pre-order are the Flash Kick, Spinning Bird Kick and Dragon Punch.

Seeing Street Fighter attacks incorporated into Remember Me's fighting arsenal is no surprise as it was reported last year that Capcom's own Yoshinori Ono had a hand in designing the combat system. Remember Me will be available for purchase on June 3, 2013.
