GAMEKYO.COM: NEW SFIV FEI LONG AND DAN SCANS

A couple screen shots from Gamekyo.com with Fei-Long and Dan dishing out some ass beatings (poor Blanka!) and a couple smaller shots of Gouken. I think Fei-Long looks like he will be real fun to play and one of the flashier characters in the game.

Scan 1 with Dan, Fei-Long and Gouken

Scan 2 with Dan and Fei Long

Thanks to P.o.t.S. on SRK for the heads up.

SUPER STREET FIGHTER 2 TURBO: HD REMIX PRICE REVEALED

Ahhh.. the moment we have all been waiting for. An image popped up online today of upcoming XBLA games and SF2: HD Remix is listed at 1600 points. That comes to $20 so it will probably be that much on PSN as well. Some people have mentioned on forums that they wouldn't pay over $15 for the game so we will see how this affects sales. Personally, I feel this game will have a domino effect since it has online play: once one of your friends downloads it, you will have to get it as well to show him who's boss!

NEW TATSUNOKO VS CAPCOM MATCH VIDEO

This video was posted on the Japanese CAPCOM site just a day or so ago and some kind soul decided to upload it to Youtube. KARAS looks like a real beast in this video (check the Baroque combo and spear throw into super), and there is also a look at Roll's super!

CAPCOM: STREET FIGHTER II: HD REMIX "BRANDED" EXPERIENCE FOR XBOX360 NXE, COMING TO XBLA NOV. 26TH

This was just sent over by CAPCOM a minute or two ago. It looks like come tomorrow with the 360 NXE update CAPCOM will have an official "branded" area for Street Fighter II Turbo: HD Remix with trailers, pictures and themes. They also mention that SFII: HD Remix will be one of the first games to drop on XBLA after the NXE update. So, no SFII: HD remix this week but looks like it's just as I thought, the 26th is the day!

TATSUNOKO VS CAPCOM GAMEPLAY SYSTEM TRAILER

S-KILL posted this a day or two back on CAPCOM's official blog. This video goes over all the different ways you can put the  hurt on your opponent in this game. I am calling it right now that if there is one thing that will break this game it is the Baroque system (no pun intended). Any sort of custom combo system in CAPCOM games usually leads to shenanigans!

THE FUTURE OF FIGHTING GAMES?

So this is something that probably belongs on my personal blog (if I had a life outside of fighting games I'd have a personal blog!) but after watching it it got me thinking how this same technology would be ideal for reviving fighting games in the arcade. The technology looks like its straight out of the movie Minority Report so there are probably a lot more practical, life-saving applications for this in the fields of science and law but one can only hope they apply this to fighting games one day.

KING OF FIGHTERS XII PREMIERE EVENT: NOV 29th 2008

According to Cyberfanatix.com there will be a SNK-Playmore hosted event in Japan come the 29th of this month for King of Fighters XII. I'm not sure where the event will be in Japan, but here is the link to the page about the event which has a map that points to the actual location.

Here are the details of the event:

All the characters in The King of Fighters XII will be playable.

The King of Fighters XII's game system will be completed.

The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match also will be playable.

There will be a special tournament for The King of Fighters XII.

So not only will all the characters be playable, but the game system will be complete as well. If this is the case, it looks like SNK is still on course for an April '09 release date.

SF2: HD REMIX ROUND 2 VIDEO

Another video of HD Remix with more Karate Kid music showed up today on Gametrailers (GT exclusive video as far as I can tell). Hopefully this is the final video before the game shows up online. I would not be surprised to see the game on PSN/XBLA by the end of next week. As far as I know the 360 is getting a dashboard update on Wednesday so maybe if we are lucky it will show up as soon as this week. Wishful thinking? We'll see!

TATSUNOKO VS CAPCOM COMING TO NORTH AMERICA STILL A POSSIBILITY?

This was pulled from Nintendo Everything earlier today. It sounds like they are pushing hard for the game to come out in the west. Though the way it is worded ("multiple potential outcomes") sounds like the game may show up but maybe not in the same incarnation as the Japanese version. Could this mean less characters/stripped down version just to get it state side?

We wont know for a while but here is the quote:

“The issue is that there are multiple potential outcomes… it’s not as simple as ‘yes it’s coming’ or ‘no, it’s not’. And we have a few other issues to contend with that I’m not able to get into details on that are coloring what direction we are able take with the franchise in the West. Again, we’re deeply in ’stay tuned’ territory but I don’t expect to have any solid news to share openly, one way or the other for a couple months.” - Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

FIRST STREET FIGHTER IV CAMMY FOOTAGE

To my knowledge this is the first video to show up online of Cammy in Street Fighter IV. It appears to be the PS3 version but no idea where the video was taken. It was most likely captured from one of the many European conventions that have gone down in the recent months. Dont expect any next level gameplay in this one but worth checking out anyway. Thanks to Oldschoolgamer from NeoGAF for the heads up.

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!
