Street Fighter announcement incoming for PlayStation 4? Watch this bizarre Hadouken Cabs teaser

Sony has put up a ridiculous and kind of awesome teaser for Hadouken Cabs. What this means exactly is up for debate. An email sent to VG247 this morning stated:

Don’t just call a cab! Call Hadouken Cabs! Hadouken Cabs. Knocking the competition out since 1987.

They also use the PS4 Twitter hashtag #4theplayers. Some of the Easter eggs shown in the video include a "PS1994" license plate on the taxi cab, a URL on the sign which points to this website, and the clip briefly shows the PS4 controller.

This teaser likely means that Sony has worked out some kind of deal for Street Fighter on the PlayStation 4, but that's only speculation at this point, as nothing has been officially confirmed, yet.

EventHub's readers chose which 6 main games they'd like to see played at SoCal Regionals 2014 - Killer Instinct and Melee make the cut

Last week, we here at EventHubs created a poll to get an idea of which 6 games our readers would most like to see as the main titles played at SoCal Regionals 2014. This was an unofficial poll generated to give the Level|Up team a better idea of what the community would like to see played next year.

The votes have been tallied, and the results are in. Interestingly enough, both Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Killer Instinct made it into the top 6, beating out games like Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and Street Fighter X Tekken. Melee is a game that isn't really played at most major events, (sans Smash specific tournaments), and Killer Instinct is still yet to be released.

Dragon's Dogma game director wants to make Rival Schools 3, hopes to develop a new fighting game genre in the future

In a recent interview with Play Community, Hideaki Itsuno, the game director behind Capcom's Dragon's Dogma series, divulged some of the ideas he has for titles he'd like to work on in the future. These ideas are not limited to just a next-gen sequel of Dragon's Dogma, but branch off into other beloved Capcom IPs.

Itsuno mentions that he is interested in creating a Devil May Cry 5, and even bringing back the Rival Schools franchise. He goes on to say that he'd like to make a title that "captures authentic fighting," and develop a new genre of fighting games.

"In addition to that, I want to also make a miniature garden simulation, as well as make more games for (established) series such as “Rival Schools 3” and “Devil May Cry 5.” Later on, I would even like to make a game that captures authentic fighting, such as Street Fighter II did, to develop a new genre of fighting games."

Obviously, this does not mean there is a concrete plan in the works for a Rival Schools revival, as these are merely ideas had by Itsuno. However, how do you feel about a potential Rival Schools game on next-gen consoles? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

Street Fighter 2 on SNES sold 10x more copies than Street Fighter 4 on consoles in Japan - statistics showing decline of Japan fighting game sales

A French site by the name of GameCharts.fr recently posted an article that exhibits sales numbers for console fighting games in Japan. Organized into several charts and graphs, we get a look out how each listed game sold, ranging from the Street Fighter 2 series on Super Nintendo, all the way through the Xbox 360 / PS3 generation, including mobile consoles.

Looking at the numbers, it is quite shocking to see that console fighting game sales have greatly dropped since the early Super Nintendo days.

According to the statistics, the very first iteration of Street Fighter 2 sold a whopping 2,880,00 copies, with the following two games in the series also selling in the millions. Jumping forward to 2009, Street Fighter 4 (Vanilla) only sold 210,641 copies on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 collectively.

Capcom Fighting Evolution makes its way to PSN tomorrow as PS2 Classic

Capcom Fighting Evolution makes its way to PSN tomorrow as PS2 Classic Fighting game fans, rejoice; we will be receiving another Capcom classic fighter over on the PlayStation Network. Joining Capcom vs. SNK 2 as a PlayStation 2 Classic, Capcom Fighting Evolution will be available for purchase tomorrow on PS3 in North America.

Known for not being the most balanced game in Capcom's repertoire, Capcom Fighting Evolution takes characters from five different titles and pits them against each other in 2D combat. The fighters represented here include Street Fighter 2, Street Fighter 3, Darkstalkers, Street Fighter Alpha and Red Earth.

Since this is hitting the market as a PS2 Classic, this will be an identical port and will not feature revamped graphics or online play of any sort. However, this download will work wonders for those of you who'd like to get some local matches going, or perhaps want to try your hand at a retro combo video or two.

Will you be purchasing Capcom Fighting Evolution when it drops on the PlayStation Network tomorrow?

Ono 'might do Rival Schools 3', has Playstation 4 projects lined up that he wants to 'live up to everyone's hopes'

Ono 'might do Rival Schools 3', has Playstation 4 projects lined up that he wants to 'live up to everyone's hopes' Yoshinoro Ono, best known for being the man behind the Street Fighter 4 series as well as Street Fighter X Tekken, has been working for a while now on Capcom's upcoming game Deep Down.

Deep Down actually has nothing at all to do with fighting games, but is an upcoming online role-playing game for the Playstation 4, set to make its playable debut at this year's Tokyo Game Show.

In an interview with Famitsu regarding the game, Ono was asked a question about what kind of game he'd like to release for the Playstation 4 after his work on Deep Down as completed. If you hit the jump, you'll find a personal translation from EventHubs staff writer MajinTenshinhan (Hey, that's me!) of Ono's reply.

Putting the rumors to rest: HD remake of Street Fighter Alpha 3 not in the works

Putting the rumors to rest: HD remake of Street Fighter Alpha 3 not in the works An HD remake of Street Fighter Alpha 3 is not currently in the works, Capcom's Peter "Combofiend" Rosas recently stated through the Unity forums.

A title long rumored, and often requested, the gossip was officially put to rest — despite the fact that Capcom had originally wanted to pursue its re-creation, instead of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix.

Still, as far back as July 2011, Yoshinori Ono had said he's trying to make a new Street Fighter Alpha title, and he's periodically offered statements that he wants to work on the series again.

Not one to give up easily, Ono mentioned earlier this week that he's still lobbying for more Street Fighter Alpha, and with Capcom's recent comments, it's looking more and more like when a new Alpha game is released, it'll be exactly that — new, and not a remake of anything they've done in the past.

The Alpha series (Zero in Japan) clearly has value for Capcom, as Street Fighter Alpha 3 holds the 57th spot in their platinum titles listing with over a million sold on the PlayStation platform — and this is without counting the other titles in this series, or other systems they were was released on.

So while fans of the Alpha series might be disappointed the 3rd entry won't be receiving a remake currently, it sounds like when Capcom touches this franchise again, they'll be trying something untrodden.

Check out the images below.

Yoshinori Ono lobbying for more Street Fighter Alpha and Darkstalkers, wishes Alpha series had online play

Yoshinori Ono lobbying for more Street Fighter Alpha and Darkstalkers, wishes Alpha series had online play Despite Darkstalkers Resurrection's less than expected sales, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono is still championing the franchise, as he said recently he's campaigning for something more — which includes Street Fighter Alpha.

Capcom has said multiple times now they feel it's time to give their fighting game re-releases a rest, because of decreased sales, so it's unknown how much support Ono will find for doing a rehashed port of these two franchises within the company.

Although Capcom has said they want to decrease the volume of re-releases, they haven't completely distanced themselves from the fighting game genre, as they announced Ultra Street Fighter 4 would be coming early next year, and they started soliciting feedback for a potential update to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Also, earlier this year, they released v2013 of Street Fighter X Tekken.

While it appears Capcom's stance is still the same in regards to their fighting game re-releases, it will be interesting to see which shape these franchises will take if Ono manages to get Darkstalkers and Street Fighter Alpha projects green lit, because given past statements, it's unlikely Capcom wants to go the re-release route again any time soon.

Hit the jump to read all of the tweets from Yoshinori Ono we've compiled.

GUXSquallNoctis: Hey @Yoshi_OnoChin when it comes down to Darkstalkers and Street Fighter Alpha will you fight as hard as you did to make SFIV happen?

Ono: I'm lobbying campaign for it. ;D
