X-Play: History of EVO

G4 TV's X-Play has put together a short video about the history of EVO. It's very broad but if you don't have perspective on where EVO grew from and how big and important it is, it's a good short synopsis.

Arc System Works bringing Arcana Heart 3 to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3

Over the last week or so, the Japanese website for Arc System Works has been counting down to a new game announcement.  The latest issue of Japanese Famitsu magazine has information on Arcana Heart 3, which will be coming to the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.  Is this what they have been counting down to? Seems likely.

The following features have been reported by Andriasang:

New features for the home include HD anime cut-ins during supers, and a "simple mode" that will let beginner players perform combos through a single button press.

Modes of play include Story Mode with full voice, Versus (for offline play), Score Attack, Training, Network (for online battles. It also seems to have full lobbies with spectator ability like Super Street Fighter 4) and Gallery for viewing unlocked movies and illustrations.

G4 EVO2K10: THE HISTORY OF CAPCOM FIGHTING GAMES

G4 continues their coverage of EVO2K10 with the History of CAPCOM Fighting Games. Though this isn't directly related to EVO, it appears the interviews with Seth Killian and Justin Wong were conducted at EVO. If you were there you may have seen a green screen set up in the back of the stage, so we can probably expect a lot more of these clips from EVO in the future.

World Officially Ending - Capcom vs Namco Rumors 

Game Informer is reporting a rumor that two very different Versus style games are being developed by the two biggest companies in the fighting game arena. Supposedly, both companies are developing their own game, pitting their characters against the rival's. Namco's game is reportedly being built with the Tekken 6 engine, while the rumor has it that Capcom's game is being developed with the SFIV engine. Given that the heads of both franchises were recently on stage together in Vegas, hamming it up, and with Ono's imminent announcement of a game, the stars do seem to be in alignment. 

Note, that these games are not continuations of the previous Namco x Capcom, an RPG. These are fighting games.

The Secret Street Society of Street Fighters

Two of the baddest dudes in the Street Fighters scene, Pherai and Mister Bean bring us PRO TIPS, top player interviews and even some top level "Xzibition Matchez". I feel this video creates more questions than answers though:

  • Will we ever see a patch for the "Baby Uppercut into Full-on Uppercut" set up? Seems broken.
  • Where will Jason Wong be in 20 years?
  • Will we ever see Pherai again?

EVO 2010: Sirlin's "The Miracle Man with Zangief", an article about HD Remix Winner Snake Eyes

David Sirlin, who was involved in the development of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, put up a blog post a few days ago about Snake Eyes, the EVO 2010 winner in that game's tournament. It's a great behind the scenes article.

Check out "Evolution 2010: The Miracle Man with Zangief" here on Sirlin's website.

Here's a sample:

I played Snake Eyes a long time ago on Xbox Live, and I didn't think a lot of him. Yeah he's good, but so are a lot of other players. Zangief has a lot of bad matchups, so I can counterpick and be fine, whatever. But people told me "no really, this guy is GOOD." AquaSnake claimed Snake Eyes would make top 8 "for sure, guaranteed" and that he would probably make top 2. This seemed crazy to me. Another player told me there was some casual play of Street Fighter HD Remix with about 20 known players, and Snake Eyes beat all of them in a row with no losses, then beat all of them again. (What??)

In case you missed it, here is the EVO 2010 Grand Finals for HD Remix between DVG (Ryu) and Snake Eyes (Zangief). It's an epic matchup with lots of clutch plays. Believe it or not, HD Remix is a great game and still has an active following.
