UPDATE: SUPER STREET FIGHTER 4 STRATEGY GUIDE

Each week we will be updating our Super Street Fighter 4 Strategy Guide, and to keep everyone in the loop as to what is new, keep checking the front page on Friday to see what we've changed.

Over the past week or two we've made a lot of updates and corrections to the text for many of the characters. Big thanks to our users and the NeoGAF community for the heads up on many of the corrections. 

So, what can you expect in the following weeks? First off we will be adding practical combo and set-up videos to various character pages so keep an eye out for those. We'll also continue to update character strategies as well -- yes we know, Seth, Dhalsim and Cammy need more attention! Our main focus right now is to make sure all the characters have an equal amount of basic strategy before moving on to the more advanced stuff, but we have a lot of great things planned so stay tuned.

To our readers: what do you want to see on this guide in future updates? Please let us know in the comments any ideas or suggestions so we can continue to make this the number one resource for Super Street Fighter 4 strategy and information. 

Here is this weeks list of updates - 

Character Pages:

  • M.Bison: Added a few combos, added lots of information about his normals.
  • Rose: Reworked the wording for one or two normals to be more precise. Added some links to videos for Ultra 2 uses and setups.
  • Ryu: Added lots of combos with some commentary on ideas about how and when to use the combos in a match.
  • E. Honda: Major revisions to special and normal moves and combos.
  • Chun-Li: Added some combos and updated special move text.
  • Rufus: Notes added to normal moves, updates to special moves and combos.

Other:

  • Unlocks Page: Added more unlock info and added graphics headers.

E3: NEW MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3 TRAILER

A new trailer for Marvel vs Capcom 3 was released today, but it's fully CG with no gameplay so don't get too excited. That said, you'll see Dante and Deadpool going at it along with many of the other previously confirmed characters. 

Thanks to Negro Justice for the tip.

IS THIS THE TRUE SUPER STREET FIGHTER 4 ARCADE UNIT?

 

According to Andria Sang, the Japanese Super Street Fighter 4 blog was updated with this picture, and mentions that true development has started on the arcade version of the game. They say "Juri and Hakan are moving on a Vewlix cabinet, though the instruction card is from the original game." 

Though I assume this has been the plan all along, this is good news for arcade operators who already bought Street Fighter 4, because this seems to be a pretty strong indicator that the upgrade from the original to Super can be done on all the same hardware.

Marvel vs Capcom 2 on sale for 50% off on Xbox Live Next Week

Marvel vs Capcom 2 will be on sale for 50% off next week on Xbox Live.  Starting Monday, June 14, the game will be discounted from 1,200 Microsoft Points to just 560 Microsoft Points.  This sale is for Xbox Live only. Last time Marvel vs Capcom 2 went on sale on Xbox Live it went on sale for Playstation Network at a later date, so perhaps this will be the case here as well.

If you don't already own the game and have reason to want to take the plunge, next week would be a great time to do so! If you are excited about next year's Marvel vs Capcom 3 and haven't played its predecessor, it might be an idea to pick this up and start getting used to the game's systems and playstyle.

NEOGEO BATTLE COLISEUM AVAILABLE NOW ON XBLA

Neo Geo Battle Coliseum -- the 2v2 tag fighting game featuring many SNK characters -- is out now on XBLA for 800 MS points everywhere.

According to reports on Shoryuken.com, the netcode is much better than previous SNK games such as Mark of the Wolves and King of Fighters XII. SNK has had a long history of sub par netcode for their games, so it's good to hear they are finally getting it right, especially with King of Fighters XIII right around the corner. 

It's worth noting that "krazykone123" put together a NGBC thread on SRK with some basic gameplay information and netcode impressions if you're wondering about either.

E3: MORTAL KOMBAT 9

Okay, I haven't played Mortal Kombat since MKII but man this trailer for the new game really looks incredible. Not only are they going back to 2D gameplay, it looks like there may be some tag action involved as well! 

With Street Fighter 4 being a massive success, I think it was the right move to return to classic 2D gameplay. Throwing fatalities and recognizable characters into the mix, I can see this game being popular not only on a competitive level but also on the stream as well. If Mortal Kombat 9 has solid gameplay and legit netcode, this could end up being a huge hit.

Here's hoping to more footage next week straight from E3!

SHADOWLOO INTERVIEWS DAIGO

Shadowloo put together an interview with Daigo, asking him a number of different questions not only about the competitive scene but Street Fighter 4 in general. Here is a quick summary -- Daigo says:

 

  • America and Australia on the same level in Super Street Fighter 4 with the exception of Justin Wong.
  • Has received other sponsorship offers outside of MadCatz but nothing as big as what they offered.
  • He says with many Japanese players coming to EVO there is a high probably Japan will win, though he says Justin has a good chance for America.
  • Wants to see either Yun or Urien from 3s as DLC characters in Super SF4
  • Would rather see CvS3 rather than MvC3

ZANGIEF NEXT FOR STREET FIGHTER 4 FOR iPHONE ROSTER

Somewhere in this world there is a scene for competitive iPhone Street Fighter. There is a place where top players battle it out for hours on end to see who is the supreme SF4 iPhone champion. This place is... not Northern California -- but we do play it from time to time and are happy to hear Zangief is next up on the roster for the portable fighting game.

No date is set for when 'Gief will be available for download but, like Cammy, this addition to the roster will come at no extra cost.

MORTAL KOMBAT MOVIE TRAILER

Alright guys, believe me when I say that I usually dislike/hate movies based off video games. And I'm talking about Mortal Kombat on a site that primarily talks about Street fighter?! However, this was a pleasant surprise for me and I'm pretty excited to see if this is for real or not. The trailer is pretty violent, so watch at your own discretion.

The Dogface Show is Back! Telling the Story behind the Biggest Money Match in Fighting Game History

After a break that lasted way too long, the Dogface Show is back! This interview series is one that I am personally excited to see, as it tells the story behind the biggest money match in fighting game history.  It was for 50K in Marvel vs Capcom 2. Loren "Fanatiq" Riley tells the tale of how it began in this episode. Hollywood could not have written a story more fitting to Marvel vs Capcom 2's community than what this interview brings to light so far.

Marvel vs Capcom 3 Confirmed to be Present at E3 and Playable

   

Capcom has confirmed that Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds will be present at E3, along with "brand new content and hands-on opportunities".  Expect a lot of information on the game to come out of E3, especially now that it is confirmed to be playable. Capcom's Christian Svensson recently said in a post on the "Ask Capcom" forums at Capcom Unity that E3 "will be a flood of new info." So, buckle up for E3, vs series fans!

E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) is one of the gaming industry's largest and highest profile events and is being held from June 15 through 17 in Las Angeles.

If you're a Capcom fan beyond just fighting games, like I am, check out the source link to see what other titles have been confirmed for the event.

Namco's "Chaos Breaker" coming to PSN this Summer as "Dark Awake"

 

Recom will be bringing a 2D sprite-based fighter called "Dark Awake: The king has no name" to PSN in Japan this Summer.  This game appears to be a port of Taito's 2004 Type X arcade fighting game "Chaos Breaker" with a new title.

Originally developed by Eolith, Dark Awake is a team-based fighting game with a fantasy theme.  It has a cast of 22 fighters including barbarians, skeliton knights, trolls, dwarves, and more.  Teams of three characters face off and you can pick up weapons and items while fighting.

   

The PSN version of the game will include an arcade mode, and online mode with both Ranked and Player Match options, and a training mode.  Recom also added voice chat, Trophies, and the ability to directly add people you've fought to your PSN friend list.

Dark Awake will see PSN download release this Summer for Japan at ¥2000. No word if this is coming to PSN for North America or Europe.  There aren't too many 2D fighting games on PSN at this time, so this game's release on the service will strengthen that lineup weakness a bit.

The screenshots above are the only ones released thus far. It has a "Golden Axe: The Duel" (Sega Saturn) vibe, which is great! If anybody has played this, we'd love to hear about it.
