More Super Street Fighter 4, Street Fighter X Tekken and Marvel vs. Capcom 3 announcements 'soon'

More Super Street Fighter 4, Street Fighter X Tekken and Marvel vs. Capcom 3 announcements 'soon' Yoshinori Ono and Christian Svensson let Capcom fighting game fans know that they'll have something more to get excited about in the near future.

Here are their comments.

Ono: So I'll visit Moscow on November 20-21st. [I'm planning to announce some] Super Street Fighter 4 and Street Fighter X Tekken news. And I'll have a special animation movie. It's localized.

[Also, we have a] pre-Gold master [of] SSFIV Arcade Edition for arcade. We will have final master soon ;D

I heard someone from Capcom said MvC3 will have around 40 characters by the time the game is done. I'm hoping they get like 44 or 46.

Svensson: Actually, we've only ever said, "at least 30," just to set expectations.

And while I'm not going to say when more character reveals will happen, there will be important news shared soon.

What do you think the announcements will end up being? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

Super Street Fighter 4 throw range comparison

Super Street Fighter 4 throw range comparison A new guide comparing the throw ranges of Super Street Fighter IV's 35 cast members has been posted here on EventHubs.com.

Unfortunately, there is some conflicting information out there in the community, so two listings have been provided to try and clarify what the throw ranges are in the game, although some things are still a little muddy.

This list doesn't take into account Command or Kara throws, simply the characters standard (toward) throw done by pressing both the light punch and kick buttons at the same time.

Also, a new area has been created on the SSF4 guide page for character comparisons guides like the stamina and stun charts, walk speed overview and tier rankings.
