« Allen Snider returns in Arika's new fighter »

During a visit to BeasTV, Arika unveiled another returning Street Fighter EX character for its upcoming, still unnamed fighting game: Allen Snider.

The developers had no gameplay of Snider to share at this time, but said that video of the character in action will be presented during the upcoming Tokyo Game Show, Sept. 21-24.

They also answered questions from the stream chat about the upcoming game, stating that they will hold a poll to decide voice acting, the company is focusing primarily on a PlayStation 4 version of the game at this point and that the decision to use 2-D instead of 3-D was because of the complexity of the Gougi system. They also revealed that the game is currently only 20 percent done and that Excel—the old custom combo system from Street Fighter EX—could make a return as part of a Gougi.

In terms of characters, the team hopes to have 10 characters on release, and will consider trying to eventually include all the old SFEX characters if players are interested in them as downloadable content. They are also open to adding Fighting Layer characters to the game.

For online play, Arika is planning to investigate GGPO as well as in-house possibilities in terms of netcode, and that the forthcoming beta will mostly be a stress test of online play.
