Capcom plans announcement for Super Battle Opera 2011

Capcom plans announcement for Super Battle Opera 2011 Mixed in with Capcom's Tokyo Game Show 2011 plans that were made public on Capcom-Unity is an interesting bit about an announcement they say could happen around the time the grand finals at this year's Super Battle Opera (Tougeki) tournament take place. It reads:

The Capcom fighting games SSFIV AE and SSFII Turbo are featured among the lineup this year. If I were you, I’d be sure to keep my eyes glued to the screen until the grand champions are decided! ...We just might be making an announcement after the dust has settled...

No word is offered on what this announcement will be, but SBO is the biggest fighting game tournament in Japan, so they should have some exciting news for the community. SBO takes place on Sept. 17th, mark your calendars.

Also, in the write up they mention that Kayo Police, Furiida and KSK will be playing SFxT on a live stream via Nico Nico Douga, where they may do character breakdowns, Ono and Harada will be making an appearance on the main stage, and there will be another SSF4 AE 5v5 tournament happening the day before SBO.

Finally, Capcom is running a contest for Street Fighter 4 Volt to see if their readers on Unity can guess which character will be added along side Fei Long when the title is updated again.

What do you think Capcom will announce at Super Battle Opera 2011? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.
