Ultra Street Fighter 4 trailer shows off new characters, features, stages, and more

Ultra Street Fighter 4 trailer

Curious about what, exactly, the "ultra" in Ultra Street Fighter 4 is supposed to imply? Capcom has released a new trailer detailing all the new characters, stages, game modes, gameplay balancing tweaks, and other features that are set to make this the biggest and best incarnation of Street Fighter 4 yet. If it's not enough for you, then you're gonna have to tell us what Capcom forgot to include, because we're having a hard time finding it.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 will launch this summer (you can pre-order USF4 now!) and will be available on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC. You can peep the trailer after the jump.

Dhalsim realistic character art

Putting the awful recent Street Fighter movie out of your mind, or even the so-terrible-it's-funny Street Fighter film with Van Damme, can you imagine what the cast of SFIV would look like if they were real? These images by Cazetta portraying some notable SF characters are so realistic looking that it's actually a little creepy.

Street Fighter IV 3DS will be a perfect port of console versions

Street Fighter 3DS

According to the head guru in charge of Street Fighter, Yoshinori Ono, the 3DS version of Street Fighter will be a “perfect port” of the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions. This means that all of those modes and features you have come to love on your console version will be included on Nintendo’s handheld. In addition, the 3DS version will have a few new aspects to hold over console gamers’ heads. 

In order to attract a newer crowd to the Street Fighter arena Ono is utilizing the unique visuals and control scheme of the 3DS. Stereoscopic 3D has been applied to give fighting matches much more depth and attract gamers interested in trying out the new 3D phenomenon.

“When you put the 3D slider on max the game will be between looking into the (game world) and the characters jumping out at you, so you can distinguish the background and characters very clearly”, states Ono.

What’s more, new control schemes will enable younger players not familiar with Street Fighter to play the game in an all new way, while veteran Street Fighters will still be able to make use of their years of training using the classic control scheme.

“We are currently working hard on researching the possibility of having two control options,” says Ono. “One would be targeting people my age, entering 40, who played on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It will allow them to play it as they used to on the Super NES…By providing two different options we hope to reach a broader audience.”

Street Fighter X Tekken Announced

Posted by John Kilhefner Categories: CAPCOM, Fighting, Namco,

There’s been quite a bit of speculation surrounding a Capcom Vs. Namco title, and finally all questions are put to rest as Capcom and Namco teamed up to announce Street Fighter X Tekken. Street Fighter X Tekken (pronounced “Street Fighter CROSS Tekken”) is an unprecedented match up of two classic fighting franchises. One a king of the 3D world, and the other a champion of 2D fighters. Bringing them together requires the other to forfeit their familiar terrain and succumb to an entirely new style of play. In other words, Namco’s fighter becomes Street Fighter-ized in order to make the cross over possible. Now before you Tekken fans start pouting about how unfair of an advantage that gives Capcom, you should also note that Namco is developing their own separate game - Tekken X Street Fighter. We can only speculate on Namco’s version at this point, but we suppose it will transplant the Street Fighter universe into the fully 3D world of Tekken, along with Tekken’s fighting mechanics.

According to Capcom, SFxTK is not going to come out “for awhile”. The real question, however, is if there are going to actually be two separate games released, or are they going to pick the best one? Perhaps they will find a middle ground out of the two and merge into one title. Whatever the case, we cannot wait for this dream fighter to come out. At least we have Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 to tide us over until then! We’ve got a few more images of Street Fighter X Tekken after the break.

Street Fighter IV hits iPhone and iPod touch in March!

Street Fighter 4 iPhone iPod touch

Okay, , you’ve definitely got our attention with the announcement that Street Fighter IV will be coming to the iPhone and iPod touch sometime next month. In fact, we are sure that iPhone gamers in general are pretty stoked to see the amount of time that Capcom put into this game in order to make it feel as close to the console versions as possible on a small touchscreen device. Truth be told, all the character models, stage backgrounds, super combos, hyper combos, and all the rest are here in full (well, if by full we mean they are all there, just scaled down.) Currently, we have both Ryu and Ken confirmed, and while Capcom isn’t giving too many more hints for now, they have said that the roster will feature a mix of older characters and the newer Street Fighter IV characters.

Control is done with an on-screen joystick on the left, and four attack buttons (two punch, two kick) on the right. You also get local multiplayer over Bluetooth, which is awesome. We will definitely be keeping our eyes on this one, and will get more information to you as soon as we have it!
