Sven on why Capcom doesn't reprint old games

Sven on why Capcom doesn't reprint old games Capcom V.P. Christian Svensson, a.k.a. Sven, was on the Unity Boards recently covering how come they don't reprint old games.

Here are his thoughts.

Is it really a bother to re-print old Capcom games, even if they're already made?

Sven: Other than the cost of manufacturing, no. It's not hard to get them remade though there are minimum order sizes of several thousand units. The HARD part is getting retail to take them because they generally won't. So while we can make it, we've got no one to sell them to that will sell them to you.

I wanted to know if there was any chance of getting Marvel vs Capcom 2 reprinted for the PS2. — Alex

Sven: Sorry, can't happen due to licensing issues.

Console versions of Street Fighter 4 will have more stages

Console versions of Street Fighter 4 will have more stages Capcom is addressing a complaint they've heard about Street Fighter 4. The console versions of the game will have additional stages according to this flier up on Capcom Unity.

This announcement came down because Capcom is hosting an event in Las Vegas at the 2009 CES on Jan. 8th through 10th.

The final build of the XBox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Street Fighter 4 will be available there along with online game play demos given by Yoshinori Ono.

Additionally, the folks at Mad Catz will be providing players with their Street Fighter IV-branded joysticks and pads.

Japanese Legend of Chun Li movie trailer

We finally get to see the Legend of Chun Li Street Fighter movie, but it's mostly in Japanese.

One may ask the question why the Japanese trailer was released first for an American movie, but hey, at least it's not dubbed.
This is set to hit theaters February 27, 2009.

No plans for Street Fighter 4 demo, info on Mad Catz controllers

No plans for Street Fighter 4 demo, info on Mad Catz controllers Capcom was back on the Unity Boards recently discussing more Street Fighter goodness.

This time around they rule out a SF4 demo, talk a bit more about the Mad Catz controllers and even delve into Sunrise vs. Capcom.

Does the official XBox 360 Street Fighter IV fightpad have a port for a headset? — TheContact

Seth: Yes, the fightpads will support headsets -- we've got you covered! I mean how else are you going to talk the trash required to enrage your opponent into losing?

When can we at least get a Street Fighter 4 demo? — Matthew

Kramez: Sorry, guys, but there will not be a demo of Street Fighter IV. You want a demo? Get Super Street FIghter II Turbo HD Remix and start brushing up on your SF skillz!

Did you ever hear of a planned crossover that is called Sunrise vs. Capcom? — Alexandre

Sven: Nope. Never heard of it. And unless it's older than my tenure here (3 years), seeing as I'm on the greenlight committee globally as well as being part of the team that manages our 5 year product roadmap, I can say it never existed in any, even proposal, form.

TAS: The only crossover I believe to ever officially be announced but never happened was Sammy vss Capcom, and that was because Sammy and SEGA merged, voiding the contract Sammy had with Capcom, as they were no longer Sammy at that point and instead a different company (SEGA-Sammy).

More Street Fighter IV screen shots

Famitsu has posted a number of screens that show Gen and Rose's moves in Street Fighter 4.

Also the Street Fighter 4 development blog linked to some new images of Fei Long, Dan and Sakura, though these look like some shots you may have seen before.

Report on Tatsunoko vs. Capcom for the Wii

Report on Tatsunoko vs. Capcom for the Wii G4TV got their hands on an imported copy of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom for the Wii and slapped together a pretty decent report telling what the game is about.

The article covers most of the core game play systems and even includes a few videos. If you'd like to know more about the game, it's certainly worth looking at.

Here's a cut.

The gameplay is like Capcom’s other versus games and it emphasizes big combos, juggling, and lots (and lots) of specials. It’s not uncommon for players to unleash 4 or 5 specials in a row. Damage is light, which extends the length of battles and injured characters will regain a bit of health while waiting in the wings.

We’ve had the game running here at the office for a few days and people invariably find their way to the Wii Classic Controllers (a necessity) to battle it out. We might not recognize all of the characters, but they present enough variety and play differently. There’s some trial and error when learning a new fighter, but the game is great fun.

Players will often pick Ryu or Chun-Li every time in an effort to hold onto their gaming roots, but you should be encouraged to try out the wacky Tatsunoko characters.

Characters have three levels of specials, many of which can be performed in mid-air. Level 1 specials can be done by both of your characters at the same time for huge damage and combos.

Street Fighter 4's online play will have 'ridiculous amount of options'

Street Fighter 4's online play will have 'ridiculous amount of options' In a new GamePro preview of Street Fighter 4, Yoshinori Ono claims the online play of Street Fighter 4 will have a ridiculous amount of options and filters that you can turn on and off.

The rest of the preview mostly covers stuff you've already heard, but it's worth a look.

Here's a clip.

"We don't you put up hurdles...we want to make it as easy as if there was someone sitting next to you in an arcade," Ono hints. "We're going to engineer the home version of the game so you can actually play in arcade mode and you can turn on a function that would allow match-making in the background, so you could just have somebody jump in exactly as they would at the arcade," Ono says. "No one's really done this before, so it has potential to be really, really huge."

But it goes even deeper. "There's a ridiculous amount of options and filters you can turn on," he continues, "and if you prefer to not have a function on at all, you can turn it off, or choose only ranked matches or player matches." And if you want some truly strenuous practice, Ono says, "you can even set it so you only fight people that are significantly better than you based upon the battle point count." Once you set your options, you'll be able to hop into arcade mode for a few quick warm-up rounds while you wait for a challenger to join your game.

Capcom still trying to bring Tatsunoko vs. Capcom to the States

Capcom still trying to bring Tatsunoko vs. Capcom to the States Seth Killian and co are still trying to figure out a way to get Tatsunoko vs. Capcom over here into the United States, he said in an interview with Destructoid.com.

They also go on to briefly cover Marvel vs. Capcom 3, along with some general SF chatter. It's a decent read, worth a moment to browse over.

Here's a small rip.

Starting simply, why isn’t Tatsunoko vs Capcom coming to the United States?

Seth: We’ve had some licensing challenges, and if you’ve read the Capcom-Unity blog, I’m a big fan of the game and posting all the material I have on it up there, cause it’s a great, great fun new experience, but the licensing hurdles ...

You know, Tatsunoko is all owned by... Tatsunoko in Japan. And in the West, they’re not. A lot of challenges there, but we’ve definitely recognized interest from a lot of people, and we’re looking to try and find a way to get Tatsunoko vs Capcom action to Western fans.

So there is a chance Tatsunoko vs Capcom will come to the United States?

Seth: Yes.

More screens of Rose, Dan, Cammy, Gen and Fei Long
