Capcom 'oiling up' for GDC event, iPhone gathering later

Capcom 'oiling up' for GDC event, iPhone gathering later Capcom is going to be hosting an event in honor of the Game Developers Conference today, starting around 6:30 p.m. PST. There will be a live stream of the festivities, which is very likely to include more footage of Super Street Fighter 4's final character, Hakan.

Seth Killian added this note about the event.

They won't let us take direct feed of the action, but there should be some good shots of the room with a few famous Street Fighters and games-industry neer-do-wells cruising around, and I'll try to bust a few shoryuken FADC -> Ultra on the iPhone. Plus who knows what could "slip" on there — anything can happen live...

Also, the creators of Street Fighter 4 on the iPhone will be gathering at the Apple Store in San Francisco, California, on March 10th. Yoshinori Ono and mobile producer, Takeshi Tezuka will be on hand to offer a look at the new title, which will be released this month.

S-Kill responds to comments on Capcom-Unity

S-Kill responds to comments on Capcom-Unity Seth Killian responded to a bunch of random comments made on Capcom-Unity. Topics range from what kind of Street Fighter character he'd like to be, to what he's most excited about for Super Street Fighter 4. This write up really covers the gamut. Here's a taste.

To Seth: "As a special adviser to Capcom, what is the one biggest thing you've done that altered the course of SSF4 development or gave its mechanics an overhaul?"

@SuckaB: Looking at one thing... that would probably be going back to the drawing boards on the collision during SFIV development. Going from 3D hitboxes back to the 2D hitboxes really made the game feel like a true Street Fighter game--maybe someone else who played very early versions of SFIV could tell you what it used to be like, but it was much "softer."

Seth talks EVO and other fighting game stuff

Seth talks EVO and other fighting game stuff Shadowloo.com is the latest site to get a sit down with Capcom's Seth Killian. In this piece they mostly discuss the Evolution Fighting Game Championships, but they also touch on other Capcom fighters as well.

A solid read, it's worth reading over if you have some time. Here's a grab.

When are we going to see a Seth Killian come back at EVO? We could do a whole documentary about it, from the moment you announce that you will be competing at the next EVO, your training in the US, Japan, Aus, EU with some montage music playing in the background, all the way up to your EVO matches!

Seth: That would be fun. I’ve had some top 10 EVO finishes, but the experience has taught me that helping to run the event and competing in the event are not a great mix. Basically both are extremely stressful in totally different ways, and I’m not able to devote myself fully to either. Since I would never do anything to compromise a well-run event, I end up trading away my own play preparation and mental focus. When you’re playing against world-class experts, you really can’t get away with that kind of split and hope for your best performance.

My other problem is that although I still play a lot of fighting games, most of my time is on pre-release development builds of Capcom games. This is a dream-come-true in a lot of ways, although it’s not so good for my competitive skills. I do a lot of poking around with our games hoping to get things exactly right, but where we find room for improvement, the games change. As a result, most of my playtime is spent on versions of the game that almost nobody else ever plays. So while I might be pretty good at 14 different versions of Super SFIV, they are unfortunately not versions anybody else will ever see. Once the game is out, I’m off and working on another new project, so when I do get a rare chance to play the finished product, it’s usually only for a few hours late at night and online.

Seth talks release dates, stages and other Super Street Fighter 4 stuff

Seth talks release dates, stages and other Super Street Fighter 4 stuff Seth Killian handled a bunch of Super Street Fighter 4 related questions on the Capcom Forums recently.

Not the most exciting topics here, but Killian talks about why SSF4 won't be released until April, that they understand fans want more stages and some soundtrack stuff they're working on, among a few other things.

Here's the latest.

Why do we have to wait so long for Super Street Fighter 4? Why can't you just release it in March?

Seth: We just finished development on the game, and believe it or not it takes time to get the games submitted and approved by Microsoft and Sony, then actually made, and then distributed. There are a ton of moving parts involved in getting the games into people's hands — it's a whole department unto itself.

Are there going to be stages for all of the characters in SSF4? Since the Alpha characters got Metro City, what are the Third Strike fighters going to get?

Seth: Although we added character-specific musical themes, SSFIV hasn't gone back to character-specific stages. Things may go back in that direction, but T. Hawk, Dee Jay, and virtually everyone else doesn't have their own stage either. The "Metro City" stage has a nod to Final Fight with the Haggar statue, but if that's enough why not call it the SF3 stage, since Hugo figures even more prominently in the background?

Overall though, message received: fans want more stages.
