Ono wants to do new Street Fighter Alpha and Darkstalkers

Ono wants to do new Street Fighter Alpha and Darkstalkers Yoshinori Ono is hosting a panel at Comic-Con today to talk about Street Fighter and other fighting game subjects. Kevin Kelly and Ernie Moreno of G4TV provided these notes from the panel.

Some interesting and unconfirmed statements have been made, so keep checking back for more updates. Here's a run down of the notable stuff so far.
• Ono asked again for fans to hold up cash to help get a new Darkstalkers game made and the words, "Darkstalkers is not dead" was displayed on the projector. Earlier the live blog authors said that a new Darkstalkers game was coming, but it's odd for Ono to ask fans to hold up money if the game is in development, so again stamp a question mark on this one.

• When talking about upcoming games, Ono mentioned that he's trying to make a new Street Fighter Alpha title.

• Dual Supers were announced for SFxT, you do them by pressing down-back and the tag button.

• Life bars will be easier to see in SFxT, and when you're lower than 25% health, they'll begin to flash red.

• There are plenty of characters still unannounced, so there will be more secrets yet to come for SFxT.

• It was mentioned again that if you want to see Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition rebalanced, you should let the Capcom crew know on Unity.

• Yoshinori Ono was dressed like Ken for the panel. And during the panel he and Harada from Namco squared off in a staged fight with other cosplayers. Video of this should be making its way online in the near future.
