Capcom's Christian Svensson Talks About Why Marvel vs Capcom 3 Won't Have a Demo, Why More Projects Fans Demand Aren't In the Works and More

On the company's Unity forums, Capcom VP Christian Svensson addressed several important topics all in one post.  He explained the business realities of why more games that fans would want aren't getting the green light and why Marvel vs Capcom 3 will not have a demo.  As a bonus he has stated definitively that the game will not appear on the Wii and why. 

The demo part is particularly interesting. If you've wondered why any game you are anticipating doesn't get a demo, here is the reason why directly from the VP of Strategic Planning and Business Development himself.

Thanks to Willis for the tip!

Rurouni Kenshin Fighting Game Coming to PSP

Andria Sang posted up a ton of new screenshots for an upcoming Rurouni Kenshin game that's being developed by Namco. It's been a while since I've heard the name of this anime series come up anywhere, and honestly it makes me feel like a dinosaur as I think about how long ago it was since I watched this series.

From the desk of Kineda:

At the HADOCON Super Street Fighter IV tournament this Saturday, Dec 4 in Burlingame, California, BLGaming is sponsoring a Beat-The-Champ competition, where any player can enter and win $100 by beating BLG Filipino Champ in a FT3 match.  Champ comments, "Many players who have never come out to a tournament and just watch me on play on streams feel they can easily beat me.  Now here's an opportunity for them to prove it in front of everyone or lose sadly trying.  I'll be prepared for any challenger." 

The event will be live streamed by iPLAYWINNER, and will also feature a NorCal vs. SoCal 5v5 competition headed by team captains EG Ricky Ortiz and Mike Ross.  For more information visit the official thread on SRK.

What Exactly is Gamescast.tv?

 


You may have heard me mention this new service over the past few days. Gamescast.tv is an “e-sports unification” project. The goal is to allow e-sports broadcasters and spectators a single destination to connect. With a dynamic list of all the current, live e-sports broadcasts, fans can view everything that’s going on in e-sports from one destination. This project is very young, but already shows a lot of promise. 

The best reason to bookmark our profile on Gamescast is to keep updated of our schedule no matter where we are going to stream. It will be neatly indexed there so you can know about all of our prescheduled streams, although we will continue to have some spontaneous content.

BlazBlue: CS Valkenhayn Finally Coming to XBOX360

A few forum members over at Dustloop.com pointed out that ARC System Works is getting ready to finally release Valkenhayn on XBOX360... in Japan. The date is set for December 7th, and the DLC character will cost ya' 560 MSP. An update patch will also be released the same day, free of charge.

No word on a North American release of Valkenhayn, but this is good news either way, and I think it's safe to assume a world wide release of the character is right around the corner.

Thanks again to IMNEXTONLINE for the heads up.

Marvel vs Capcom 3: Food... Fight? Dec. 11th, Los Angeles, CA

Capcom-Unity just posted up details on a new Marvel vs Capcom 3 event they are dubbing "Food Fight". This is a spin off of their classic Fight Clubs, with top chefs from the Los Angeles area creating Marvel vs Capcom 3 dishes. Of course the game itself will be there, open to the public to play, but it's first come first "serve" (har har) as they are only letting in around 200 people!

They also mention this will be the "newest build of the game" though no specifics were mentioned. We'll keep you updated as more info rolls through. Check out Capcom-Unity for the full post

VersusCity: The 2D Gods Present the Twins (Tokido and Mago talk Yun & Yang)

Reno at VersusCity.net posted up a really cool translation from Arcadia Magazine where Tokido and Mago talk a bit about Yun & Yang in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. Overall, sounds like those of us who spent a lot of time with both characters in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike shouldn't have too hard of a time picking up the twins. 

Below, you'll see a few interesting points about the characters, though you will want to go to VersusCity for the entire article. There are more notes about their combos, normal attacks and other stuff as well.

Thanks again to Reno for the awesome translation!
