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.

Prepare to be blown away by the greatest Street Fighter fan in history!

BL1TZEN uploaded footage of quite possibly the greatest Street Fighter fan ever, and by "fan", we literally mean an electric fan. This appliance features small cut outs of Street Fighter characters taped to it as they performing various acts.

Ken is connected to the spinning switch on the fan allowing him to perform his Hurricane Kick on Blanka and E. Honda sits up front with multiple taped hands blowing in the wind to simulate his Hundred Hand Slap. Overall, this may be the coolest appliance we have ever seen... yeah, sorry about that.

Check out the video in all of its glory and share a laugh or two.

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.

Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist set to start shooting this year

Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist set to start shooting this year As detailed in our earlier story, Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist is a project from the creators of the Street Fighter: Legacy series, aimed to give fans a well-made live-action adaption of the Street Fighter series.

After starting up their Kickstarter campaign roughly two weeks ago, with a goal of £625,000 ($950,000 USD), they recently shut it down two weeks earlier than their planned May 4th end date. The reason for this was explained by the series' Co-Creator Joey Ansah on their Kickstarter page.

Street Fighter 2 Guile theme acapella version by Smooth McGroove

Smooth McGroove put together a very nicely composed acapella version of Guile's Street Fighter 2 theme. Using only his voice, Smooth McGroove sings each part of the song and edited them together with a bit of match footage in the center. This is one of the more interesting SF2 theme song covers and it's definitely worth a watch.

This isn't the first time we've seen Street Fighter themes recreated in peculiar ways. Not too long ago we had Marcelo Carvalho reenact a SF2 match between Ryu and Sagat with only his mouth and a guitar. We also saw Guile's theme noisily played on 8 floppy drives.

The target amount they are looking to raise is £625,000, ($950,000 USD). If you decide to donate a bit of money, there are a bevy of rewards you can receive such as access to their production blog, t-shirts, a DVD collection containing the series episodes, the battle gloves worn by Ken and Ryu, the Akuma beads prop and more.

The Kick Starter will end on May 3 at 8 p.m. EDT / 5 p.m. PDT / 1 a.m. GMT. Check out the video below for more information and hit the jump to see the original Street Fighter Legacy short film.

Two VHS tapes give a glimpse into the past with Street Fighter 2: The World Warrior and Street Fighter 3: Third Strike

Thanks to the efforts of The Urban Arcade and Retro Reality Gaming, we have two glimpses into the past of Capcom's Street Fighter history. The first video gives a look into an arcade tournament held on 1999, the first year of Third Strike's release whereas the second video is an instructional videotape from the Nintendo Magazine System showing players how to play The World Warrior.

There are humorous pieces in both videos, The first contains Yun players using SA2, people actually picking Twelve, a Q player winning, and Chun-li players doing the same low forward shenanigans as always. The second video has takes on how strong some characters are compared to others while showing some of the more interesting move properties in SF2 (such as Honda's Sumo Headbutt not knocking down).

Awesome promo tape from the early 90s claims Genesis Street Fighter 2 Turbo has better graphics and sound than the arcade version

Video game promo tapes from the 90s seem to have a bit of an aversion to the truth. Back in 1993 Capcom sent out about 1,000 VHS cassettes to hype up the release of the Genesis version of Street Fighter 2: Special Champion Edition.

While the other Capcom SF2 VHS strategy guide is fairly infamous and well documented, which you can find after the jump, this version is somewhat more rare as it was released in such limited quantities.

In the tape, you get to find out notable things like:

• The Genesis version is actually better than the arcade, "no lie!"

• It features more crowd noise and even more realistic sound than found in the arcade version.

• The music and graphics are better "with colors not found any where else."

I think anyone who purchased the home console versions of these games may have had a thing or two to say to the contrary in regards to the music and graphics being better, especially in the Genesis port where the characters sounded like they have laryngitis.
