KOTAKU: THE MANY FACES OF RYU

KOTAKU posted up a set of pictures from a Street Fighter History event in Tokyo that showcases the many different faces of Ryu over the years. According to the article, there has been 15 different "official" versions of Ryu and all I can say is I am glad we have moved on from the original version from the very first Street Fighter!

NEW STREET FIGHTER II: HD REMIX UDON TRAILER

New UDON trailer for HD remix. More of a promotional trailer than a gameplay trailer like the combo video that was posted last week, but entertaining none the less!

STREET FIGHTER IV PRIMA GUIDE AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER ON AMAZON

Found this today on SRK, looks like the PRIMA guide for Street Fighter IV is up for pre-order on Amazon. I'm not 100% sure who is behind this guide other than a poster on SRK known as DrDogg who has mentioned they are going all out to make this guide really informative. It should include all the frame data and combos from the master guide and all the information on the new characters such as Sakura and Cammy as well.

In the mean time be sure to check out iPlayWinner's (work in progress) Street Fighter IV guide.

STREET FIGHTER IV ROSTER WRAP-UP: ROSE

Well, it appears the final challenger has entered the arena! According to SRK, Rose has been added to the SFIV roster, making the final tally of characters come to 25.

The game has come a long way since I first played it back in February where only 12 total characters were selectable (the original 8 and the 4 new comers). More characters could be added through downloadable content but right now the character select screen looks pretty full so anyone expecting some last minute Third Strike characters shouldn't get their hopes up. I personally never played a lot of Alpha so not too sure what to expect from her gameplay wise, but we should see more images and videos shortly.

STREET FIGHTER IV TOURNAMENT RESULTS AND CHARACTER DATA

Nohoho posted on his blog earlier this week International Street Figher IV tournament results and included a chart that shows character usage, win rate among some other things. I'm not surprised Ryu is being used the most, but still interesting Sagat is used less than Chun-Li!

Also, something included in that same post is a move list for SFIV in PDF format that Nohoho translated. As far as I know this was taken from an Arcadia mook before the Master Guide came out. You can download it here!

TEKKEN 6: BLOODLINE REBELLION LOCATION TEST: VIDEOS AND REPORTS

A little late on this one, but I stumbled upon this tonight while browsing around NeoGAF and SDTEKKEN tonight. Looks like the first Tekken 6: BR location test was conducted just the other day. MarkMan posted up some new videos of the event and Reno posts his impressions on NeoGAF.

Somewhat related, I've had a chance to play vanilla Tekken 6 at San Francisco State University this week, and it seems to be a lot of fun. Many hardcore players say the game is broken in many ways but the machine at SFSU always has plenty of people waiting to play when I go there (much more than SFIV even.) Ive tried to play a bit of Steve and Kazyua but sadly I am not that good at the game. I do plan on playing more though in anticipation of the release of Tekken 6: BR which should come to consoles in Fall '09 according to Namco.

CAPCOM: JAPANESE TATSUNOKO VS CAPCOM SITE UPDATED

With the game right around the corner for a Japanese release (December 11th) it looks like CAPCOM has updated their Japanese website with new information on characters and the gameplay system. It would be nice if CAPCOM had a similar page in English for those of us who are looking forward to importing the game into North America!

If you havent already, you can pre-order both the game and the new joystick by Exar from Play-Asia.com.

GOOTECKS.COM: FREE SFIV GUIDE, NEW PODCAST

Ryan over at Gootecks.com posted up his new e-book for players who are transitioning from Street Fighter 3 to Street Fighter IV. The two games play pretty differently over all and the strategy involved in both games is in most cases quite a bit different. I started with Street Fighter III and found it did take some time for me to wrap my mind around the game mechanics of Street Fighter IV.

Submit your name and email address on his site to get your copy.

Also, earlier in the week he posted a new podcast with Rufus player Bobino. This podcast (sort of) goes hand in hand with the e-book in that Bobino is a Tekken player transitioning to SFIV. Check it out!

CAPCOM: NEW SFIV AND HD REMIX VIDEOS

Capcom sent over a couple new videos today! One is a new video showcasing various combos in Street Fighter II: HD Remix and the other is a character profile video of Seth, the boss of Street Fighter IV.

From the press release:

We have a super awesome combo video for Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix which demonstrates some of the very rare and extremely difficult combos. It’s an extraordinary moment when you witness one of these combos at the arcades and we have compiled them all for you, our fans.

Additionally, we’ve released a character profile video featuring Street Fighter IV’s final boss, Seth! Seth coincidentally, shares the same name as Seth Killian, our very own resident community manager, Street Fighter expert, and all around super human being life-force. That’s Mr. S-Kill to you. Coincidentally, the throne in the background also features crossed hands, the style in which our very own Seth Killian utilizes to whoop on me in SFIV. Coincidentially, coincidentally, coincidentally . . . coincidence. He’s going to kill me.
