MORE SUPER STREET FIGHTER 4 ARCADE TEASER IMAGES

Yoshinori Ono  just posted this picture on this Twitter, which is of course Chun-Li getting ready to rip out an Ultra 2. He also posted a small note:

@Yoshi_OnoChin

All right , here we go, everybody ! Chun-Li's Ultra Combo was moving on Arcade board. Just give us a little more time!

The tweet is actually cut off, but I assume he meant "give us a little more time." Either way, sounds like the arcade version of Super Street fighter 4 is right around the corner!

Norcal's Finest Melty Blood Player

With the introduction of Melty Blood into the Evo roster, communities all around America have a chance to step into the light of mainstream fighting games. Often considered a niche game with Western audiences, Melty Blood now stands at a crossroad: will it finally gain its recognition after Evolution 2010 or will it fall into obscurity beneath the shadows of other popular games?

To answer this question and give some insight into the community, I was invited to a Melty Blood session by Norcal’s best player, Yat. Considered the “Robot” by his colleagues, Yat is Norcal’s strongest representative for Evolution 2010. Below are some question asked during the interview:

 

Try to ignore the EngrishQuestion 1: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your involvement with the Melty Blood community?

Yat: I first started playing Melty blood three years ago at the advent of the PC release, Melty Blood Act Cadenza. I randomly showed up to SJSU and met a lot of the people in the Melty scene. I’m actually not that active on Meltybread (an online community of Melty Blood players).

Question 2: Can you tell us which character(s) you use and why?

Yat: I use everyone because… I get bored too easily with characters. That’s literally the reason.

*However, Yat admits that Tohno Shiki is probably his strongest character.

Nagoya Street Battle 15

Nagoya Street Battle 15 went down yesterday with 46 teams battling it out in Super Street Fighter 4. There were a lot of heavy hitters in the house, including a seriously stacked team of Daigo, Mago and Tokido, though the final results may surprise you. If you happened the miss the steam -- I know for some reason certain people couldn't view the steam -- you can check out the recording above, though it cuts off before the final matches. NSB also recorded the pool play which you can find on their USTREAM page

Eventhubs has a detailed battle log with results you can check out here

JUSTIN WONG TAKES ESWC

 

Evil Geniuses sweep Super Street Fighter IV at ESWC with a one-two finish; Justin Wong takes first place and $8,000; Marn nets $4,000 for second. France's Luffy third for $2,000.

Final

Justin Wong def. Marn 3-1

Semi finals

Justin Wong def. Luffy 3-1

Marn def. Infiltration 3-1

Third place

Luffy def. Infiltration 3-1


The organisation of the tournament has left much to be desired; the first round of the tournament was character locked depsite this not being mentioned in the rules, then the second round onwards was not character locked. The tournament only has 17 players, yet it has taken three days to complete with players having an average of three matches a day.

Super Street Fighter 4 is "nothing compared to what's coming", says Yoshinori Ono

Ono-san has publically said he's wanted to make a new Darkstalker for over a year now.Capcom's Yoshinori Ono, the producer behind Street Fighter 4 and Super Street Fighter 4, made an interesting Tweet today.  Here's what he had to say:

Super SF4 on sale!! SuperSF4 is nothing compared to what's coming!!

He's been talking about wanting to make a new game in the Darkstalkers series for over a year now. Personally, a new Darkstalkers would be a dream come true. Between the graphics engine used in Super Street Fighter 4 and the new one being utilized in Marvel vs Capcom 3, you know it will look gorgeous.

He is scheduled to be at EVO next week in Las Vegas (July 9-11). Perhaps he will give more information then, but given that Marvel vs Capcom 3 is also there, we'll see if Capcom wants to take any spotlight off that game just yet.

Laugh, Infiltration, Zak & Ryan through at ESWC

The results are up for the group 1 round robin at the ESWC in Disneyland Paris with Infiltration topping the group and Ryan Hart taking the second qualifying spot. Yamazaki surprised everyone by playing Rose; he was known in vanilla SF4 for his Ryu. Group 2 was scheduled for Thursday afternoon and while the website has not been updated, word coming out of Paris is that Infiltration and Zak are the qualifiers from that group, Infiltration taking top spot winning all his matches 2-0.

Friday morning will see EG.Marn, Luffy, Chunkis, FOX and Geom PKK in action. Marn vs Luffy will be especially interesting because the tournament has a character lock, so there will be no American-style counter picking taking place.

Friday afternoon will see blackieEX, Chasin, LordDVD and EG.Justin Wong take to the stage. There is no live internet stream, however you can keep an eye on developments here.
