Report: Street Fighter X Tekken released before April 2012, 2 million in sales

Report: Street Fighter X Tekken released before April 2012, 2 million in sales According to a financial report (.pdf) Capcom put out, Street Fighter X Tekken will be released before the 2011 fiscal year ends, which is March 31, 2012.

The game is expected to sell 2 million copies, which was the same number of units Marvel vs. Capcom 3 ended up moving.

The other item of note is that Capcom plans to "Increase the number of home video games with DLC," and they will, "Provide downloadable content for all major titles for home video consoles." Street Fighter X Tekken should definitely fall into the category of a major title, so users can expect DLC in the future, after it is released.

The Viper Ball, half-screen overhead in Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Thaguy uploaded an interesting video put together by Chrisis, showing how C. Viper can do a very fast overhead without the use of meter from half-screen distance in Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

A full explanation is offered, along with additional setups and tactics you can employ. There's also a full-screen setup as well.

Burn Kicks and Burn Kick Feints akin to Street Fighter inherit the momentum Viper has when she starts the Burn Kick Feint, because of this you can have very fast close to the ground motion off of super jump forward instant burn kick feint, a.k.a. The Viper Ball.

The Viper ball is very simple 2, 1, 4, 9 motion ~ Light, Medium, Hard, Special ~ Special. With this Viper essentially gets a King of Fighters hop/super hop with a ridiculously useful horizontal arc, with this from an incredibly far distance away you can hit double to triple overheads very quickly and more importantly if you time it right it comes out faster than her trijump by a very significant margin. It's very close in speed to her 2, 8 motion, ADF, Light except horizontal instead of vertical. Thanks to its arc hitting Hard Special in the air is incredibly easy to combo leading into incredible damage with a low scaling high damage starter.

Big ups to Chrisis and Thaguy for documenting and sharing this with the community.

Figuring out Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition's release date

Figuring out Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition's release date Capcom hasn't come out and said outright when we'll get Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition, but a couple telling clues can be pieced together to paint a picture of when the title will become available.

Previously, Christian Svensson said a release would happen about 4-6 months after they started talking about the game a lot.

Svensson added recently that a deluge of information would be revealed about the game in 4 weeks, which likely means this year's E3 show, held June 7-9, 2011.

4-6 months after this time would be October to December 2011.

This isn't a for sure thing as there's no official announcement yet, but if things hold to form we should be seeing the game late this year.
