Video of Starnab's Fei Long in Street Fighter 4

James pointed out this video featuring the French player Starnab (Fei Long) against Dieminion (Guile) at the World Game Cup recently. This was a best of 5 money match with some very impressive play from a character you don't see very often.

Street Fighter IV is #1 on iPhone top grossing app list

Street Fighter IV is #1 on iPhone top grossing app list Street Fighter 4 has opened up with a good showing on the iPhone, taking over the top spot for gross application sales, even though it hasn't been out for very long.

While it's still too early to tell how this game will do overall, with this kind of performance it's possible Capcom might release it on other portable platforms as well, if they can figure out how to do so at an effective price point.

Most reviewers have praised the game, even though they haven't handed out top notch ratings for the title, it's received solid scores from pretty much everyone. So if you've been on the fence about picking this up, for $10 — it appears to be worth the money.

Capcom Europe: New Ultras make up for bad match ups

Capcom Europe: New Ultras make up for bad match ups Ready-Up.net has an interview with Capcom Europe's PR guy, Leo Tan. This is a mostly tongue-in-cheek article, although there's a few interesting bits discussed. Here's a clip.

With all the existing fighters getting a new Ultra do you think anyone of them now has a surprisingly different game they can play?

Some of the charge characters have a non-charge Ultra now, which has quite a significant impact on how they play. Some of them are just plain cooler (like Ryu’s), and some are more for fun than tournament play. Usually, though, the new Ultra makes up for something in a poor match up.

Thanks to Dan for the news tip.

Super Street Fighter 4 previews from Team Xbox, 1Up

Super Street Fighter 4 previews from Team Xbox, 1Up Team Xbox posted a new preview of Super Street Fighter 4. This recaps a lot of what you've heard previously, but the most interesting bit comes at the end of the article when Ono talks about why Rolento wasn't included in the game. It states:

I had one more question for Ono: why no Rolento? For those in the dark, Rolento was originally a character in Final Fight that made his first Street Fighter appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 2. Given the appearance of a number of lesser known Street Fighter III characters, why didn't the unconventional paramilitary leader make an appearance as well?

This was actually the most animated Ono was during our interview. “Rolento is actually my favorite character! I wanted to include R. Mika and Rolento in Super Street Fighter IV, and they were on the list,” he explains, “but the director kept cutting them! I think he was doing it to spite me. I even tried to get them into the backgrounds of one of the stages, but no luck.”

Also, Richard Li posted a write up on 1Up.com about Hakan — if you're not tired of hearing about him by now. Richard isn't your average gaming journalist writing about Street Fighter, as he's competed and had several solid showings at big tournaments, so this guy knows his stuff.

Wakeup Shoryuken tells more Super Street Fighter 4 details

Wakeup Shoryuken tells more Super Street Fighter 4 details The Wake Up Shoryuken team had a few guests on this evening to discuss what changes they found in Super Street Fighter 4's final build.

The Podcast archive is now available, but in case you don't want to sit through the broadcast, here's some of the notable things they mentioned. Many of the topics they discussed were covered previously, so check this article to see what's been stated already.

• Focus Attacks are faster, you have to be more aware of them now or you'll eat a combo.

• It seems like Super moves across the board do more damage.

• Sagat has 1,000 health now, down from 1,100.

• Zangief has 1,100 health, which is down from 1,200. Hit box on the Lariat got moved up a bit so it's easier to duck under.

Another look at Hakan, screens and Ultra movie

Azrael had this to say about the latest Shiozawa (Nakky) blog entry, which was light on content.

• Hakan is the president of a world-leading cooking oil company. He uses the oil from his company in the fight. ... Of course, he hates fire.

• Capcom is teaming up with another restaurant in Japan to do Street Fighter themed dishes again.

More announcements near Super Street Fighter 4's release, Hakan stuff

More announcements near Super Street Fighter 4's release, Hakan stuff AndriaSang.com translated a Famitsu article which has an interesting quote from Super Street Fighter 4's producer, Yoshinori Ono, it states:
As a final message, Ono confirmed that Hakan is indeed the final Super Street Fighter IV character. However, he promised more announcements for the game in April and May.

Of course, Super SFIV comes out on April 28, so assuming Ono actually meant to say May, he'd have to be referring to post-release announcements.

This statement could simply be alluding to the planned DLC Tournament Mode update, which will be a free addition to the title, but this was already announced some time back, so it's possible Ono is talking about something else entirely here.

The article also has a few interesting notes about the origins of Hakan and the play style of some of the other characters. Here's another grab.

For those who try to master Hakan, Ono said the character is for mid to high level players. One of the goals with Super, he said, was to give players who came to SFIV from SFII a path to climb one rank higher in level. This is one of the reasons the SFIII characters were included. He admitted, however, that the SFIII characters are all aimed at extremely high level players. Hakan is within easier reach than the SFIII characters, and Ono wants those who feel they can't reach the SFIII characters to use Hakan as a stepping stone. He also noted here that Juri is meant for beginners.

Juri and Hakan are the only two completely original characters for Super SFIV. Famitsu asked Ono which of the two is the more popular amongst the staff. He couldn't answer, as the Hakan character had just been completed and he had yet to be used in internal tournaments (Ah hah! I knew that's what they do all day!). Ono explained that the Hakan character's fine tuning is nearly complete, and he's interested in seeing how many staffers select him.

To further add to the mix, GameSpot got some air time with Ono-san while he discussed Hakan. Here's the video.

Plus there's an article on GameSpot.com with additional notes.

And lastly, there's a follow up piece on AndriaSang which points out the names for Hakan's moves.

List of Super Street Fighter 4 gameplay changes from MrWizard

List of Super Street Fighter 4 gameplay changes from MrWizard Shoryuken.com's MrWizard has come through with a list of some gameplay changes in the final build Super Street Fighter 4.

Note: This is not an official list of change notes from Capcom, but just some thoughts from someone who's had some hands on time with the game. There's probably quite a few more subtle changes than what's stated here.

Abel: Crouching Hard Kick is faster. His Ultra 2 can't combo but its fast and has armor if you hold the button, it looks to be very good.

Adon: He seems very weak. Both ultras are hard to use. Jaguar Tooth and Jaguar Kick are both unsafe on block. Aerial Jaguar Kick might be safe. EX-Jaguar Kick is safe on block. Has a very good overhead though, one of the best.

Akuma: No known nerfs. Many of the nerfs from earlier builds were reverted. Infinite is gone, but you can still combo after far Standing Hard Kick again. Light Punch cannot link to Hard Kick anymore though, so you cant loop it. Level 2 Focus Attack into new ultra whiffs, but works from Level 3 Focus. EX-Air Fireball into Ultra 2 will combo.
