Famitsu scans show Cammy's moves

Famitsu scans show Cammy's moves It appears that Cammy will have nearly the same special move set she had in Super Turbo in Street Fighter 4, with the addition of a Dive Kick and her Ultra move.

This is judging from the images Famitsu posted of Cammy recently.

Sirlin: HD Remix may pave way for more SF titles

Sirlin: HD Remix may pave way for more SF titles The third part of Videogamer.com's interview with David Sirlin is up.

David talks about the problems the PS3 version has had, why it isn't out for European players, his thoughts on Street Fighter 4 and how HD Remix could pave the way for future SF remakes.

The final part of this interview gets a bit... interesting, here's a clip.

VideoGamer.com: On your site you say you don't have a PS3. From what you've seen of the reaction to the PS3 version and its netcode, are you seeing any differences in terms of how the netcode is performing?

DS: I actually wouldn't expect it to be the same because the way Sony servers work and Microsoft servers work are different. When you and I play each other and one of us drops or something, we might each report to the server that we won, so the server might say, 'well what's going on here, they're both saying they've won?'.

So there's a whole bunch of different data you might look at to think, well one side is probably lying. Microsoft has what's called arbitration servers that do exactly that. They look at a whole range of factors about that drop and then they send back their advice and say, 'well we really think it was this guy that disconnected, this other guy was probably OK'. And so that's how we award wins and losses appropriately.

HD Remix sells over 250,000 units

HD Remix sells over 250,000 units Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix has already broken two records for downloadable titles, and it looks like its well on its way to becoming the most profitable digitally distributed title ever. Here's a straight up copy and paste from Capcom-Unity.com.

It is with great pleasure to announce that Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix has sold over 250,000 units year to date. HD Remix has shattered both day one and week one sales records and will most likely break 30 day sales records as well. It's on its way to becoming the highest grossing digital title ever.

It would be idiotic and quite frankly, irresponsible to attribute the success of this game to just one person. That's like saying Boxer has better kicks than Chun-Li, it just ain't true. We'd like to thank everyone who poured their heart and soul to reviving one of gaming's most beloved franchises. From the producer, Rey Jimenez, to the folks from Backbone and Udon, to the product development, business development and marketing teams at Capcom, HD Remix was a labor of love for everyone involved.

Last but not least, I want to give a big shout out to the hard core Street Fighter community (yes you Shoryuken, Unity, and Key Stoners) who kept this game relevant for the past 15 years and spread the word to the entire gaming industry that Street Fighter is still the "best around"!

With this title doing so well, it makes one wonder if Capcom will seriously consider releasing it on other platforms besides the XBox 360 and PS3...

Mad Catz to unveil Street Fighter 4 controllers at 2009 CES

Mad Catz to unveil Street Fighter 4 controllers at 2009 CES If you want to get a close up look at the new Mad Catz's Street Fighter 4 controllers, they'll be showing them at the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas January 8-10.

Here's relevant parts of the press release.

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 18 -- Mad Catz Interactive, Inc., a leading third-party interactive entertainment accessory provider today confirmed plans to attend the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada from January 8th through January 10th 2009. Mad Catz will be exhibiting in the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, located next to the Convention Center in Suite No. 377.

Mad Catz expects to display its new range of licensed Street Fighter IV accessories. Expected to ship in conjunction with the hotly anticipated title in February 2009, the range has been designed in conjunction with Capcom and includes the FightStick: Tournament Edition for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, featuring genuine 'Sanwa' components used in the original arcade cabinets.

Street Fighter Devotion interviews the OC ReMix team

Street Fighter Devotion interviews the OC ReMix team OverClocked ReMix, the guys behind Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HDR's soundtrack, covered how they ended up working with Capcom during an interview on Street Fighter Devotion.

Sounds like a lot of blood, sweat and tears went into this project. Certainly worth checking out. Here's a clip.

SFD: How did the collaboration begin with Capcom to use these tunes for the new Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix game?

SHAEL: So, Blood on the Asphalt was released in 2006, and then in 2007 I got an email from Rey Jimenez, an associate producer at Capcom, with “Blood on the Asphalt” in the subject field. He started the email with "Don't worry. This isn't a cease and desist," and went on to explain that Capcom enjoyed the album, and had been playing it in their booths at trade shows. Working under the assumption that Malcos (Stephen Malcom-Howell), who helped me direct the album, and I had done all of the music ourselves, Rey asked if we'd be willing to let them use it in HD Remix, and if we'd be willing to make some modifications in instances where they thought a track needed to be changed.

No plans for standalone Blu-ray version of Street Fighter 4 anime

No plans for standalone Blu-ray version of Street Fighter 4 anime The only way to get your hands on the Blu-ray version of the Street Fighter 4 anime will be putting up the money for the collector's edition of the game, at least that will be the case for a little while.

Seth Killian hopped on the Unity Boards today to chime in on the subject.

Will you be able to buy the Blu-ray version of the Street Fighter 4 anime separately?

Seth: There are currently no plans to release the SFIV Blu-Ray movie as a stand-alone. As it seems, it's designed to be an added feature for the Collector's Edition exclusively.

It could eventually be released as a stand-alone piece, I suppose, but even if that plan started today, it would be 6 months to a year before you'd be able to get it (and as I mentioned, those plans don't currently exist at all, so it may never happen).

Small Famitsu scans show Rose and Gen

SRK user Akutabi Gamma uploaded some small scans that show Rose and Gen in Street Fighter 4.

Rose was previously confirmed and it looks like she might be the last character if the selection screen is any indication, which would bring SF4's roster up to 25 characters.

Here's the Famitsu images.

HD Remix character guide updates

HD Remix character guide updates If you haven't checked out our Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix Strategy Guide here on EventHubs.com since it launched over a month ago, you should stop by again.

We've added quite a bit of new content to the Akuma, Balrog, Chun Li, E. Honda, Ken, Ryu, Sagat, Vega and Zangief character guides.

And the best news is that there's much more on the way. The rest of the characters will be receiving updates, and there will be much more content added in the future.

As always, if you have feedback or would like to add something to the character guides, please feel free to contact me here, or you can leave comments on the website.

Hands on preview: Street Fighter IV

G4tv.com's X-Play had Seth Killian on the show, and he brought the console version of Street Fighter 4 and a Mad Catz tournament stick with him.
You get to see Zangief Screw Piledrive Sakura about 100 times, but Seth also talks quite a bit about the game during the 9 minute segment.

Mostly stuff you've heard before, but if you haven't actively kept up with Street Fighter 4, it's worth watching.

Kristen Kreuk covers plot for SF movie

Kristen Kreuk covers plot for SF movie Kristen Kreuk had a very short interview with the website Fearnet.com, and she outlines what the Legend of Chun Li movie is going to be about.

Tell us about Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.

Kreuk: It’s the origin story of Chun-Li, what happens in her childhood and through her young adult years that causes her to become the fighter that she is.

It’s kind of a spiritual journey in a lot of ways. A traditional kung-fu story where I’m very angry and going to go get revenge, but I find a master who teaches me to overcome my emotions so I can see the greater good, then become a stronger fighter because internally you have a greater strength.

HD Remix stats, patch and getting creative with Tatsunoko vs. Capcom

HD Remix stats, patch and getting creative with Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Seth Killian and Christian Svensson were back on the Unity Boards recently talking a little bit about what's going on with HD Remix and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.

Here's what they had to say.

Is there an estimated time of arrival for the Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix stats website?

Sven: There are some kinks being worked out and we don't have an idea how long it's going to take.

I'd like to give you a date but there's a few unknowns still getting fixed and literally 4 different parties working on the site (MS, Sony, Capcom, BBE and our marketing agency for SF).

It's a very complex project.

Does Capcom expect to be able to get a fix for the HD Remix rating/ranking bug?

Seth: We are evaluating the patch possibilities, so yes, we hope we're able to address it.

Is the release of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom in the U.S. being held up because of licensing?

Sven: No. It's a combination of things of which licensing is just one issue.

I've got no new information on a TvC release for the West. We're still trying to get creative. I can't say anything beyond that.

Note that Christian says they're "trying to get creative," with Tatsunoko vs. Capcom's potential release in the U.S.A. It's been speculated this may mean an overhaul of the Tatsunoko lineup.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom released on the Wii in Japan

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom released on the Wii in Japan Tatsunoko vs. Capcom has been officially released on the Wii and you can buy it from Play-Asia.com for 69.90 USD. If you're not too familiar with the game, you can check out the Wii Intro Trailer here.

This is the Japanese release, and it is region locked for players in other countries, so if you wish to play it on a non-Japanese Wii system, you'll have to bypass the region lock.

There are several ways to do this, so if you really want to play the game, you should be able to find a way.

That said, it's still unclear if Capcom will be able to bring this title to other countries in the future. Considering the Tatsunoko characters fly way under the radar for most of the English speaking audience, it doesn't seem like it would make sense to bring the game over to other counties as is.

But if there was ever a spiritual sequel to Marvel vs. Capcom 2 — this is it. What seems more likely to me is that Capcom would remove/rework the Tatsunoko characters and replace them with people from more popular franchises.

Doing this may or may not be something they're willing to do, but they have stated several times they're looking at ways of getting Tatsunoko vs. Capcom out there to more players.

As always, if anything like this were to happen, we'd cover it here.

Part 2 of David Sirlin's interview with Videogamer

Part 2 of David Sirlin's interview with Videogamer The second part of David Sirlin's interview with Videogamer.com has been posted.

It offers quite a bit of insight on what was going on behind the scenes at Capcom, Udon and Backbone Entertainment at the time.

Considering what was going on, I'm a bit surprised HD Remix ended up being as good as it is.

Also in case you missed part 1, you can check it out here.

Japanese live action Street Fighter 4 commercials being filmed

Japanese live action Street Fighter 4 commercials being filmed Capcom of Japan is filming live action commercials for the upcoming release of Street Fighter 4.

They've hired a crew of actors, and Famitsu did an interview with the girl who's playing Sakura which Reed on the Capcom-Unity website kindly translated.

There has been no word about these spots being shown in other countries, but to avoid the Godzilla-effect, I'm assuming we'll never see these things outside of YouTube.
