Sonic Hurricane's Bi-Weekly Combo Video: Ken

These combos are incredible to watch, as usual.  Head over to Sonic Hurricane's post about this video (use source link below) to get some idea of how they were pulled off. 

Would have been epic if they used the song from Good Morning, Mister Masters as the background for this vid.

Capcom Says More Character Announcements to be Made "Soonish"

Capcom's Christian Svensson has made a few interesting remarks on the Capcom Unity forums.  They are both related to the roster of characters for Super Street Fighter 4.  The most intriguing comment is the statement that a new announcement related to Super's characters is to be expected in the near future.

Here's what he posted on Capcom Unity: 

Is there any chance of a character poll for Super Street Fighter 4?

Sven: To set expectations the game is rather far along and one of the FIRST things we did was sort out what the roster would be. While we're happy to accept additional feedback for future titles (if they should exist at some point in the future), the ship has pretty much sailed for Super Street Fighter 4.

Ono said there will be about 8 new characters in SSF4, does this number include Dee Jay, T. Hawk and Juri or not?

Sven: You'll get a straight answer... but not today. :) Indeed, we are playing things a bit close to the vest and we will have more announcements soonish that shed more light.

Official Japanese Super Street Fighter 4 Developer Blog Translation: Replay Channel 

Here is Azrael's translation of the 17 November posting on the Japanese official Super Street Fighter 4 Developer Blog.  This installment is about the replay channel.  It is an interesting read if you love replays as much as I do.  Thanks again to Azrael for the translation.


Hello everyone. This is Tsukamoto.
Continuing from where we left off next week, a closer look at the network modes! Well then, let's get right down to it with the Replay Channel.

First, tell us about how the Replay Channel came to be.

Shiozaki:

While we were making the PC version for SFIV, we thought "isn't there something we could do with the replays?" Our very first image was of producer Ono coming out of the bath in his bathrobe, with a drink on the rocks in one hand while he watched replays, like something out of a comic book (laughs). The basic idea there is that you wouldn't have to touch the controller. "A drink in one hand, petting a cat with the other", or for us, we'd be gathered around a heated table with some oranges. At any rate, we wanted to make it so that you could watch replays without having to press any buttons.

Super Street Fighter 4 Character Videos with Seth Killian Commentary

Here are several Super Street Fighter 4 videos made by IGN.  Each video shows off a different new character: Dee Jay, T-Hawk, and Juri.  The videos show most of each character's moves, some of the strategy behind the character, supers and ultras, and other things.  If you want a good rundown of the playstyle of each of these new characters, these videos are good viewing.  Capcom's Seth Killian does the commentary for these vids.

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger Coming to PC (in France) Early Next Year

Tradewest Games SAS has announced today that BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger will be released in France for PC in the 1st quarter of 2010.

Frédéric Bichat, General Manager of SAS Tradewest Games added:

"We are particularly proud to have been selected for the exclusive distribution of ... BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. This partnership allows us to strengthen our line-up.."

It should be noted that BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger has not yet been released on Playstation 3 and X-Box 360 in Europe. That, also, is expected in 1st quarter 2010. 

The game was released on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in North America and Japan in June of this year.

It is odd that the PC release of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger was announced for France, but we are certain to get announcements that it will release in other territories in the future.

IPlayWinner Site Update Rundown

SITE UPDATE RUNDOWN

Hello everybody! It has been almost 2 months since we launched the new redesign of IPlayWinner and things have been pretty hectic behind the scenes. Haunts and everybody involved in this site have been working hard to make this site better for our readers. 

With all of the news that goes up on the front page regularly, however, we started to feel as though our work on the rest of the site is being overlooked. We are **not** just a news blog.  We are working on guides and many other features that we feel will be useful to players.

So, on a regular basis (maybe Fridays) we will have a short rundown of things we have added or improved on the site that are not related to news. This week and the next few weeks may be a bit slower, however, because Haunts is heavily involved in next week's Norcal Regionals. Anyway, here is what we did this week:

He talks about the new characters and about some of the new modes.  There isn't any new info for those who have been soaking up new info on a daily basis, but people who haven't been may find it interesting.  While the interview takes place some Gamespot guys take the sticks and play the game. The interview has lots of footage of the new characters in action.

Street Fighter fans have asked Capcom for many things in a sequel to Street Fighter 4, and it certainly looks as though Capcom is working hard to please as many of its fans as possible!

A lot of information on Super Street Fighter 4 has surfaced over the last couple of months.  If you need to catch up on Super Street Fighter 4, we have created a page designed to get you up to speed by looking at one stop.  This page, located in the Super Street Fighter 4 section of this site, contains all known features that have been *confirmed*.  Rumors and speculation are not present.  We will update the page as more confirmed information rolls in.

If you haven't been keeping up with the game, we've also added all official trailers to the Super Street Fighter 4 section.  Between the Confirmed Features post and the official trailers, you should be able to get caught up on the game in no time! Hope you find this helpful!

The Super Street Fighter 4 section of this site can be found by using the "Game Select" pull-down menu at the top of the page and selecting Super Street Fighter 4 or you can go here.

TUHON 2009 : KOREAN TELEVISED SF4 TOURNAMENT

For those of you familiar with Tekken Crash, a similar series has popped in Korea called Tuhon 2009, this time about SF4.

The format of this first season is a single elimination, 16 man tournament, with apparently each episode focusing on 1 round of the tournament. The season is planned to end with the top 4 from Korea facing off in a 4 on 4 exhibition against Mago, Kyabetsu, Momochi, and Kindevu.

The official website for the show can be found here:

http://www.nstargame.com/tm/

As of now, the first 3 episodes are out, which you can find here:

Episode 1:

Part 1

Part 2

Episode 2:

Part 1

Part 2

Episode 3:

Part 1

Part 2

According to Laugh, the Akuma player 'Infiltration' is undoubtably the strongest Akuma player in Korea, and even the strongest player in all of Korea. I know this is someone I'll be watching more of.

Thanks for Laugh for posting this on the Shoryuken forums.
