The latest Super Street Fighter 4 Developer Blog was updated. Here's a translation, thanks to Jigsaw from Capcom Unity. This one is about Adon. Enjoy.
Developer Blog No.11
How's everyone doing? Tsukamoto here.
Today's subject is the newly added character Adon, so Okada, Tamamura and I will tell you a little something or other about this character in development!
-Please tell us how you decided on adding Adon to the roster.
When choosing which characters to add to SSF4, not only characters from the Zero games were on the list, characters from SF1 were too. Adon is a Zero character as well of course, but since he was also in SF1, he was first on our list. There was some concern that we'd have a lot of quite complicated characters this time around, like Juri and Cody, so we felt there was kind of a need for simple, easy to understand characters as well. For that reason, Adon seemed like a good choice. Also, well, I don't know what the rest of the world thinks (laughs), but everyone on the development team seemed to think Adon's a really cool character, so he was always popular among us.
