A translation of the latest posts on the Japanese Super Street Fighter 4 developer blog are here courtesy of Arc-rail! This was originally posted on the blog in 2 parts but we're combining it into 1 for easy reading. The subject is one of the game's new arcade version characters, Yun! It gives a lot of information on many facets of the character, so if you want to know more about one of the game's newcomers, look no more!
The latest update to the IPW Super Street Fighter 4 Guide is here! This week we've had some excellent contributions from our readers, so check them out!
Some of these contributions have shown us that while many of the characters' guide pages are coming along great, there are others that really need help. A few of the guide pages, mostly transferred over from our original vanilla guide, are also in need of an update upon closer inspection.
What we may do is focus on one character at a time each week and try to get as much information up as we can.
This week we're going to focus on Balrog (Boxer). So if you have any information for this character that you think needs to be in the guide, as well as links to tutorials that you think are a necessity for players who are new to the character, send those in!
Of course you can send in info on any character and we'll add it, but if you're a player with lots of Balrog knowledge, now is the time to share that with us as we rewrite his guide page so we can incorporate all of the information smoothly.
Send any info to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave it in the comments! Also any suggestions can be made there as well. Thanks in advance!

Marvel Vs Capcom producer Niitsuma posted on his Twitter today disconfirming a lot of the characters that could have been on the MVC 3 roster.
Niitsuma also posts about Megaman fans will have to wait a little longer. Does this mean some of the Megaman Universe will be in MVC 3?

In this episode of Cross Counter, Gootecks and Mike Ross talk about the already infamous match between EG Marn vs Daigo at Seasons Beatings Redemption.
EG Marn steps in with Mike Ross to give him a run down of every little detail that went down in the last match.
This Is a must see episode. It was fun hearing how everything was unfolding from EG Marn himself. Maybe soon we can get a breakdown from Daigo himself?

This episode should be a real treat because with Seasons Beatings just recently passed, there are all kinds of interesting topics on this show. Arturo loves to get into the nitty gritty nuances of the games he plays (which we find out is a lot!) so I guarantee everyone listening will learn something interesting in this episode.
Do you live in NorCal? Do you like Street Fighter? If so, you'll want to pull yourself away from XBOX LIVE for a few hours and mosey on down to San Jose Bar and Grill for the next installment of KEYSTONE II! If you guys were at the last one or saw the stream you probably know what to expect -- lots of good matches, good people and good beer!

For this event there will be THREE back to back to back Super Street Fighter 4 tournaments! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Just like that! 5 bucks to enter each one, single elimination! The NorCal Tekken squad will be in full effect and have a few things up their sleeve as well!
I'll actually be celebrating my birthday at this event so I wont be able to hold it down on the live streaming front, but we will be uploading a lot of direct feed matches to YouTube and we promise lots of cool interviews and stuff too! I'll post 'em up as soon as I recover! Hah! See you there!
Due to some scheduling conflicts this event has been canceled for tomorrow and rescheduled for sometime early next year. Stay tuned!
From KS2 Boss Albert_C:
This event is cancelled. There are too many variables considering the baseball game. It could potentially go on longer or start later. Sorry guys, I think the best thing to do at this point is to just cancel it altogether.
We'll look towards throwing another one sometime in January.

This is EG Marn vs Daigo Umehara, just one of many matches that have been uploaded to the Seasons Beatings Official YouTube Channel.
Pulse dancing, palms going damp and mouth going dry, you sit down to plug in your stick alongside a fellow traveler. The pleasantries of occupation are extended – button check? Why, thank you, sir. Then, to swords.
A knockdown is scored. You cozy up to your fallen foe. Itchy index finger taps short kick, timed to press the enemy's brain into processing defense against meaty pokes. The exhilaration of auspicious chicanery presses you forward as he foolishly tosses out a reversal, to which you dole out withering punishment and place him back upon his shoulder blades. Deja vu from your tapping fingertip. Unnerved, your prey elects to block, a decision you reward with a throw. Now you have meter; now you are invincible...

A new interview with Seth Killian surfaced today a few interesting bits of information. He mentions Capcom is shooting for a lot of character diversity in the game and in parts of the interview it sounds like Ryu may be the only shoto making the cut -- only time well tell. More than that, is there a hint that something could be in store for the Power Stone series? Check out the excerpt from the interview below, or read the entire thing by clicking here.
