FIRST IMAGES OF DAN & FEI LONG IN STREET FIGHTER IV

Big thanks to long time Street Fighter training parner and friend EARWIG on SRK for the first shots of Dan and Fei Long in SFIV. They are small shots but pretty easy to make out the characters models. Fei Long looks real good and Dan is well... Dan!

These are from the newest issue of PLAY magazine which has Sakura on the cover so be sure to pick it up when it drops!

NEW STREET FIGHTER II: HD REMIX SCREEN SHOTS

Capcom released a bunch of new screens from HD Remix today. The game looks (and plays) real nice, so all that's left is a release date!

STREET FIGHTER IV VISUAL UPDATES FOR CONSOLE RELEASE

There was talk about Chun Li and Sakura receiving aesthetic updates earlier last week but it looks like there are now some comparison shots popping up online of..neither of them! First shot I've seen so far is actually for Guile, and the changes are somewhat subtle but I think over all for the better. I feel most of the characters in the game could use some minor tweaking in some areas, namely Ryu and Ken.

I hope they extend these updates to the alternate outfits as well. Most people are not pleased with the majority of the alternate outfits for the characters in the arcade release. Some are good like Balrog and Chun-Li's but others are just downright lazy like Ryu and Kens. I'm still on the fence about Sagat's but having 3 or 4 more alternate outfits to choose from would be great. One step at a time I guess!

PRE-ORDER NINTENDO WII JOYSTICKS

The two sticks being released from Exar are now up for pre-order on Play-Asia.com. They have two versions, one with Tatsunoko vs Capcom art and another without. The stick without art is a little cheaper and I assume may be a little easier put some custom design on.

Street Fighter 4 Console Release Date Rumor

Capcom has previously announced that SF4 would appear on console in the "Winter" with no further specifics.  According to Kotaku, Capcom's Australian Distributor has February 27, 2009 listed as the release date for SF4 on Console in Australia.  This seems fairly believable, and fits into both the actual season of Winter and Capcom's fiscal 4th Quarter (Jan 1, 2009 to Mar 31, 2009).  Time will tell if this rumor has any substance to it.

VIRTUA FIGHTER 5: BEST VERSION FOR PS3 (JAPAN)

So there are a bunch of threads popping up about a Virtua Fighter 5 Best Version coming out for PS3 in Japan. There is some confusion in that it is some sort of updated version of the game (ver. C or D), but it is not. Best Version in Japan is essentially what we have as Greatest Hits here in the USA.

If there happen to be any significant changes or updates I'm sure we'll find out soon but don't get your hopes up.

UPDATE: STREET FIGHTER CLUB NYC (VIDEOS, REPORTS)

So some reports from last night are showing up online already both on Shoryuken.com and CAPCOM's official blog. It sounds like the Street Fighter Club event was very successful and everyone had a great time, which comes to no surprise to me. The last one in LA did very well too so maybe they should keep hosting these types of events even after the game comes out!

A user on SRK, Zerul, happened to get some good footage from the event for both SFII: HD Remix and Street Fighter IV. Here is a video of Blanka vs. Justin Wong's Sakura:

NEW TATSUNOKO VS CAPCOM JOYSTICK

I assume most of you who are reading this blog are like me and have no interest in playing Tatsunoko Vs Capcom with the Wiimote or even the classic controller. If you're looking to import a joystick for the game, looks like according to the official CAPCOM blog one will be coming out before the end of the year.

Now as far as I know you can use GameCube converters to use your PS2 joysticks on your Wii but I have no idea how well these work. HORI also released some Wii joysticks but I also have no idea how hard those are to come by these days.

I'll update once these are available for pre-order.

KARIN COMING TO STREET FIGHTER 4? (UPDATE: NOT LIKELY)

Updated on Thursday, October 23, 2008 at 12:19PM by Registered Commenterhaunts

Updated on Thursday, October 23, 2008 at 3:20PM by Registered Commenterhaunts

I pulled this up on SRK today over my break and actually had skipped over it the past day or two because Yoshinoro Ono's interviews are getting pretty redundant at this point. Well, turns out in this interview with Famitsu he hints at another character being added to the SFIV roster.The clue is that it is a character that only appeared in Street Fighter Alpha 3.

According to the Street Fighter Blog they conclude that the only possible character it could be is Karin. They mention Ono said no Final Fight characters will join the cast (I didn't know this) which means Cody is out. At the same time Gief's alternate costume is essentially Haggar so maybe there is a possibility there.Since we already have Sakura in the game, I personally would much rather see Cody (or Guy or Adon if we're talking all of SFA) than another school girl.

Even more than that though, lets be honest here, another returning Street Fighter? Really? We've already established at this point that two of the four new characters need a lot of work to be competitive, so why not work on some fresh faces that can actually put up a fight against Sagat and Bison?

CAPCOM STREET FIGHTER IV CONTEST: CALLING ALL ARTISTS

A lot of Street Fighter updates over at the CAPCOM blog today, (Halloween costumes? Really?) but the most interesting one I saw is the chance to have your art featured in the Street Fighter IV instruction manual for the PS3/360 release. They will pick the best two pieces of art to be featured in the instruction booklet, so that's pretty good odds if you happen have any talent. Looks like there will be other prizes as well, so I wouldnt be surprised if they hook everyone up who submits some art with some sort of consolation prize. They are taking submissions until Nov. 7th, which means you have about 2 weeks to whip something up.

Head over to the official Street Fighter site to submit your entry.

I personally dont know much about it but 1up.com has written up a preview on the PSP version of the game. I will definitely try  to pick this up to see what this game is all about.

GAMESPOT SUPER TURBO HD REMIX TOURNAMENT: PART ONE

Looks like Gamespot has posted up the first video of the Street Fighter event that went down here in San Francisco earlier this month. It contains some player interviews and about 3 matches from the HD Remix tournament. Although some pretty funny parts, nothing too exciting gameplay wise but I'm sure some fierce play will show up later in the series.

STREET FIGHTER II: HD REMIX RELEASE DATE PREDICTION

So there has obviously been a lot of talk about when SF2: HD Remix will come out, more talk infact than about the actual game itself... or so it seems! As of today, a bunch of new screenshots surfaced that were sent out by CAPCOM and they stated that the game will be out "Very Soon" according to 1up.com.

STREET FIGHTER ALPHA 2 & 3 HEADING TO PSN?

I know not many people were all that excited about Street Fighter Alpha 1 coming to PSN a couple months ago, especially after CAPCOM hyped it up a bit, but I know SFA2 & 3 is a completley different story. According to 1up.com, Street Fighter Alpha 2 & 3 have been rated by the ESRB and are heading to PSN.

NEW YORK STREET FIGHTER CLUB UPDATE

Well, that's that. If you didn't already register for the Street Fighter Club event in Brooklyn, NY you're all out of luck it seems. GGPO as they say.

CAPCOM posted on their blog they received well over 350 entrants and they've closed the doors to anyone else. On the plus side, if you're one of the first 250 to show up you will get a goodies bag. If goodies dont interest you, well they intrest me so send me what you happen to pick up if you dont want it! Hah!

WORLD CYBER GAMES VIRTUA FIGHTER 5 JAPANESE BRACKETS

Browsing around the events section on VFDC I was reading up on the World Cyber Games and came across this blog post that shows the players and bracket list for WCG VF5 Japan. One thing that I think is really interesting is all the different titles these contenders hold. It just shows how much more active the VF community is in Japan compared to North America. Sure you have EVO Marvel champs, NEC Third Strike top placers, and even a thriving Tekken community, but VF5 really dosent hold the same sort of status in North America as these other games.

TGS '08 PICK UP: STREET FIGHTER 20TH ANNIVERSARY KEYCHAIN

STEP ASIDE SIR, YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT ON THIS FLIGHT.My good friend Sterling over at GameSpy ended up grabbing me a little something from the CAPCOM store at the Tokyo Game Show last week. I met up with him at a club here in San Francisco last night and this i what he had for me. Between this and my audible Chun-Li keychain (which I had to take off due to  "Spinning Bird Kick! Yatta!" being heard from my pocket daily) I am pretty much set!

AKSYS GAMES BLAZBLUE VIDEO UPDATE

Looks like over the past week AKSYS GAMES has uploaded some more combo videos for BlazBlue. I'm pretty much sold on Ragna myself for this game at this point but we'll see if my opinion changes once I get my hands on it!
