EX special moves and Ultras made their first appearance in Street Fighter: The Movie, the game; Alpha Counters were also included

If you've managed to get some hands-on time with any of the Street Fighter games that were released after the SF2 series, then chances are you've run into EX special moves, Alpha Counters, and Ultras at some point or another. These game mechanics are used very often in modern Street Fighter titles, and Capcom / Namco's recent crossover fighter, Street Fighter X Tekken, actually incorporated a form of all three into its gameplay.

Each of the aforementioned game mechanics has its respective game where it was originally introduced: Street Fighter Alpha (Alpha Counters), EX special moves (Street Fighter 3), and Ultras (Street Fighter 4). Or so we thought...

It may surprise you to hear that these concepts weren't actually brand new by the time those titles were officially released. A game that is only spoken about in hush tones throughout the Street Fighter community actually included these mechanics before or at around the same time as the 3 titles mentioned above.

That's right. Street Fighter: The Movie, the game, had EX special moves, and its own form of Alpha Counters and Ultras. Hit the jump, and we'll tell you all about it.

Ono feels Capcom's new hires should want to leave Japan, said company needs to view DLC as a system they're supposed to have

During an internal investor relations interview, Yoshinori Ono was asked about what kind of people Capcom should hire going forward.

"Simply put, people who want to leave Japan," he said.

Asked for clarification on what he meant, Ono added that, "People involved in global business development who only know Japan have no real hope of accomplishing anything.

"To offer services adapted to each region, you need to take an active interest in regions outside Japan, and make an effort to understand their local customs and culture," said Ono

He closed out the sentiment noting that, "People who work at Capcom are expected to take a broader view of the world."

Ono was also quizzed about DLC, to see the rest of his responses, click the Read more link below.
