Ono has idea for Alpha 3, Sven talks tournament rules, Mega Man

Ono has idea for Alpha 3, Sven talks tournament rules, Mega Man Capcom employees made a few more posts on various social channels. Yoshinori Ono is first up, talking very briefly about Alpha 3, mentioning a Triple Upper version. SFA3 Double Upper, as it's called in Japan, is known as Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX here in North America, so if you take Ono's words at face value, it sounds like he wants to do another iteration of the Alpha 3 series.

Svensson discusses the rules for tournament organizers seeking permission from Capcom to run events, which he covered previously.

I hope in a couple of years, you make Street Fighter Alpha 4 — KingQuaka.

Ono: Ummm, Alpha 4... I have [an] idea for Alpha 3 ↑↑↑ Triple upper! :P

Would I require official license to run a tournament for a Asian New Years celebration? Every year the Hmong do a New Years celebration around October - November depending on the area you live in.

I have been planning for years to start doing video game tournaments as part of the entertainment they have at the Hmong New Years since they always have sport tournaments why not a video game tournament. We will be charging competitors an entry fee but all the money from the entry fee will be given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.

Me and the people helping gain nothing from the tournament. So would I still have to acquire a official lincense? — Houa


Svensson: From what you've described, the odds are you'll be OK Houa.

Christian Svensson and Seth Killian also went over Mega Man's popularity, which doesn't directly deal with fighting games, it's more about the core titles from that franchise, but considering he was a very popular suggestion for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, this might shine a little light on the scenario. Hit the jump to check that out.

Niitsuma wanted more Mega Man, Darkstalkers fighters in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 A few more details emerged about Marvel vs. Capcom 3 today as CAW Evolution translated an interview that was conducted with the title's producer Ryota Niitsuma.

Here's a rundown of the notable stuff.

• Development began about two years ago (mid 2009).

• Niitsuma considers Ryu and Akuma to be different types of characters; Ryu is a battery character, while Akuma is an "active combat" character.

• Neo_G's shadow will soon be available in a pack, this is Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and 3's lead battle designer.

• Spencer is considered a technical character.

• Niitsuma wanted to include more Mega Man and Darkstalkers characters.

• There was a staff member who kept suggesting Rainbow Mika.

• The disaster in Japan has changed Capcom's original plans regarding the future of the game, but there will be an announcement down the road.

Evil Ryu guide for Arcade Edition uploaded

Evil Ryu guide for Arcade Edition uploaded The Evil Ryu guide here on EventHubs has been added with information including Evil Ryu's normal and special moves along with his Super and Ultra Combos. If you're thinking about trying this character in the upcoming Arcade Edition DLC, then this will be a good place to get started.

There are no damage values currently on any of his moves, but all of his bread and butter combos are listed. Here's a piece of the guide.

Evil Ryu is a character with a lot of powerful options at many ranges. He has a great approach game with his Hop Kick and Axe Kick along with an overhead to punish defensive players. He also has a fantastic zoning game with his quick-recovery fireballs and a good damage game, especially in the corner. Just like Ryu, Ken and Akuma, Evil Ryu has great reversal options with his Shoryuken.

Evil Ryu has a low stamina and stun rating though (same as Akuma) so you have to play him very carefully, leaving few defensive openings. His teleport move is poor, hurting his defensive strength. Characters with strong anti-fireball tactics also give Evil Ryu a rough time since it's such an important portion of his defensive game.

The best way to think of Evil Ryu as a character is Ryu with Akuma elements. The power of Evil Ryu lies in his Axe Kick and that move is what separates him from the other two characters.

The information for this guide was compiled from match videos and the arcade cabinets at University Pinball. No frame data currently exists for Evil Ryu.
