Another Street Fighter short film in the works

Another Street Fighter short film in the works Trailing in behind Street Fighter: Legacy and Street Fighter: Beginnings End, another Street Fighter short is being filmed with the hopes of turning into a franchise reboot.

LazyGamer caught up with DeVille Vannik, who will be playing Ken for a quick interview. Here's a snip.

So we hear you are working on some Street Fighter promo videos, what can you tell us about the project?

DeVille: Well I can’t say all that much at the moment but it is a promo that will be used by the creators to pitch the idea for a remake to the big shots at Capcom.

Will these videos be used for public viewing, or are they created to try and get more money thrown at a larger project?

DeVille: Yes, the promo will go public and it will also be used to draw some investors to the project.

How many character/actors are involved in the project? Will fans like where it’s going?

DeVille: For this promo its Ken and Chun Li. The storyline is different than what’s been done before so I’m sure fans will enjoy it.

Who are you playing in the promo, and what does it entail? Do you have to kick some ass?

DeVille: I play Ken Masters and in the promo and I’ve come to China to find Ryu, he’s last known whereabouts lead me to a dojo where I meet Chun Li. And yes, there will be some ass kickery for sure.

The people behind Street Fighter: Legacy also talked about moving forward with a mini-series or paid featurettes, but it's been awhile since any additional news has come out about the project.

Thanks to Ognipode for the heads up.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 news digest, extra notes Quite a few new Marvel vs. Capcom 3 details hit the web this evening. To save you the time of reading through every article, here's a bulleted recap of the notable stuff.

If you want to read everything for yourself, check out the sources at the end of this story.

• MvC3 will contain a Simple Mode where there will be only one or two attack buttons. This is for new fighting game players so they can get used to things. They can switch to Standard Mode when they feel like they've got the hang of the title.

• Niitsuma confirmed there will be DLC of some sort for MvC3, what exactly will be in these packs hadn't been decided yet though.

• Certain character combinations will enable you to do things that you otherwise wouldn't be able to do. Also, Niitsuma specifically said that they're pushing the individualism of the characters much more so than they did in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.

• Capcom-Europe is currently filming MvC3 player guides with producer Niitsuma-San & general fighting game fanatic Electric Leo.

• The plan to do Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was in place before vanilla Street Fighter 4 was launched. Although Capcom was encouraged by SF4's sales, MvC3 wasn't built in reaction to the other game's success.

Third Strike Yang combo video by KYSG

Noticed over on IPlayWinner that a new Third Strike combo video featuring Yang was posted by KYSG. This gets a bit repetitive, as it's just the same character for over 4 minutes, but there are some really cool combos in here regardless.

Yoshinori Ono ruled out storylines and anime intros for Super Street Fighter 4 arcade's new cast members, stating that they lack the storage on that platform to do so. Also, apparently they can't bring back the vanilla Street Fighter 4 announcer because they can't find him.

• In a blog entry a member of the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 team said they're prepping another promotional video for the game and they might announce new characters at GamesCom. Also, the Marvel characters have been winning in most of the gameplay clips because the Capcom side lacks win poses.

Svensson: No 'simple' patches for consoles

Svensson: No 'simple' patches for consoles Capcom's Christian Svensson and Seth Killian made a few follow up posts on the Unity Boards recently.

They discuss so-called easy fixes for console games, characters in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition.

There isn't anything earth shaking here, but there's a bit of new information.

How come Capcom doesn't patch stuff that's a simple fix? There are bugs that can be solved quickly, yet they still remain in your games, why?

Sven: [...] What you think is a simple fix, may actually be a simple fix for a few of [our] guys to execute in a weekend. But to patch a game requires a full test pass on our side to ensure that that fix didn't break anything else, and then submission to [Sony and Microsoft], who in turn also have to do a full test pass to certify the update. [To make] even the smallest change, it's tens of thousands of dollars in man hours.

In short, there's no such thing as a "simple fix" on a console.

There are no female characters on the Marvel side for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. What's up with that?

Sven: Patience... 8)

Yun and Yang need to be in Super Street Fighter 4, can you make that happen?

Ono: Oh!, it [would be] nice! I want them too, but I really want Rainbow Mika [in the game]. ;P

Do you remember Karin from Street Fighter Alpha 3? Does she have any hope of being in SSF4?

Ono: Of course, I remember Karin, Mika too. :)
