Street Fighter X Tekken: Tekken side can use four-button mode with no penalty

Street Fighter X Tekken: Tekken side can use four-button mode with no penalty EGMi: The Digital Magazine has a new story up about Street Fighter X Tekken. They speak with both Yoshinori Ono and Seth Killian about how the game plays and some of the ins and outs of development.

Keep in mind this is a digital magazine and not a traditional webpage, so you have to browse this a little differently, you can skip straight to the story by clicking the image of SFxT on the cover. Here's a snip from the article.

Are there any characters from either side that you wanted to include in SFxT but decided against because, after trying them out, you realized they didn't work?

Ono: To be honest, we've not experienced that yet. We are constantly brewing up wacky combinations of what would be a cool match-up, etc. Because of this, the team's morale is very high. After all, it is a dream come true for all of us as well as the fans. I have a feeling that this approach will result in a vast variety.

Killian: You know when the first stage we show is full of Cyberbots references, everyone is feeling loose and in a very open and accepting mode.

Seth recaps Super Street Fighter 4 AE details, Svensson still pushing for PC Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Seth recaps Super Street Fighter 4 AE details, Svensson still pushing for PC Marvel vs. Capcom 3 A couple more posts popped up on the Unity Boards from Seth Killian and Christian Svensson. Nothing hard hitting here, but Seth recaps what users should expect from Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition, and also what people will get who don't want to upgrade as well.

Svensson briefly jumps in to talk about how easy the mechanics are in SF4 compared with other Capcom fighting games and notes that he's still pushing for a PC release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Seth recently confirmed, at a live stream, that when you start up SSFIV AE, players have the option of choosing either SSFIV or AE. If that's the case, isn't it pointless to own SSFIV on disc in the first place? — Ryu2680

Seth Killian: Hrm, I'm not sure I follow you here, but here are the options as I see them right now for SSFIV owners:

1) You have SSFIV on disc. You do not buy AE.

In that case, you can still play the game you bought, you get the updated Replay Channel features, and you can even play against people that did buy AE. I don't see how that makes SSFIV on disc worthless.
