Revogamers, a Spanish language gaming website, has interviewed Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono at Gamescom. In this interview he talked about Super Street Fighter 4 3DS for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS handheld, and he had some interesting details.
First of all, the game will have all 35 characters found in the HD console versions and will play and feel the same as well. It will feature a new touch control mode as an alternative to the traditional controls as well. We'd imagine it would work similarly to how Street Fighter 4 plays on the iPhone (which works pretty well all things considered). A new difficulty mode would be available for this control scheme so that all players can enjoy the game.
The 3D component to the game will be like if you put the characters in a box, where players can feel the depth. This feature can be turned off or back on as desired.
He also said that he realizes that multiplayer is a very important aspect of the game and that he is working had to provide a satisfactory experience. However, the 3DS is still not final so he cannot fully comment on that.
He also mentioned that the 3DS' D-pad is not final, but said that the newer versions Nintendo has shown them are coming closer to what the Super Street Fighter 4 team prefers.
Interestingly, it seems Ono presented "Street Fighter Fit" to Capcom as a Wii game, but when he was told about the Nintendo 3DS he decided to go that route instead. He said that one of the reasons for bringing the game to the 3DS is because he considers it to be the perfect console to bring together all types of players from beginner to veteran.
Tokyo Game Show 2010 starts on September 16th, making that event a good opportunity to reveal more details.
