Platforms have yet to be announce but Pro-G details its own Top 10 things that will make Street Fighter 4 great. Read on, get excited and start practicing those Hadoukens.
I agreed with them, 2D is what makes SF so bad ass so theres is no need to make it 3D. there to many 3Ds already. lets keep this one special Capcom.
How about actual block animations.
This is a kick in the nuts to MK series if they release same time around,
They both great but ST all the way!
died with the disaster that was MK4. What on EARTH were they thinking? 3 was classic, 4 was an utter disaster, and they haven't recovered since...IMO MK's biggest blows have been to themselves. There isn't much room for Capcom to bury them further if you ask me. At least whatever they offer next can presumably just be better.
would never make a Street Fighter Game 3-D. Maybe a spin off but not an actual main game in the series. I have complete faith in them. Capcom and SNK have always been the king of fighting games development.
If Street Fighter 4 was 3-D I think the fans would be truly disappointed.
Can we get a little CPS4 love? I'm hoping a mixture of Rumble Fish 2/High res 2D with like 2x the animation frames of 2I.
You impress me with your knowledge of the Capcom arcade boards. It is a shame that the CPS3 was not used in many arcade games. Only a handful.
If Capcom designed a CPS4 the FPS for the animations would be insane. I think Capcom should stick with Hi-res 2D art work. But I think they will go with a 2.5D and make the backgrounds 3-D a la Marvel vs. Capcom 2.
I only hope they do not go over the top with the Super Moves in SF4 as it would take away from the old style gameplay of the series.
There was an interview a few years ago on IGN with early SFIV details. They said the gameplay would remain 2D with some 3d elements. So your 2.5d hypothesis might very well be correct. We were guessing it'd have something to do with either the stages, dodging, or maybe some kind of depth block. That was the only reason I had hope it was coming, that and the Streetfighter Site remained oddly up to date these past few months. I guess we have to wait until tomorrow when Capcom finally answers questions for us.
I never owned a ST game but this could be the first one =)
dude, your dead to me....
just kiddy, by seriously if your thinking about getting SF4 i recomenned picking up a copy or your gonna get ya ass handed to you.
capcom Vs SNK 2 is a great game, you could probably get a copy off ebay for a few $$$.
Keep it 2d and make sure it is able to reach its full potential by being developed on the Xbox 360 especially with the Xbox 360s superior online features it will have the oppurtunity to be the best Street Fighter yet
you mean the superior online features, for that you have to pay for and on PC/PS3 not? like online play? :D you are a true ignore collector...
dont agree, but bubble for your avy, sir.
Looking forward to it.
Theres no reason for this kind of game not to be released on all formats - even a WII version. The 2D wont stretch the abilities of any of the machines.
Online features and play are of course a great inclusion, but for a one on one fighting game, face to face 'one on one' matches are where the true spirit is at.
2D, anti-Aliased sprites (ala Guilty gear) to produce perfect cartoon looking graphics.
Multi level breakable enviroments. Like the old Fatal Fury real bout games.
A HUGE roster of new and returning favourites. Please bring Guile back (among others)
ISM options similar to Capcom vs SNK 2. (streetfighter3 parry, streetfighter alpha counter, snk plane dodge etc etc)
Incredibly stupidly insane super moves
Oh... And special SF4 pads for all consoles that will be recieving the game. Preferably like the 6 button Dreamcast Hori fighting pads. Those things were badass!
but I'm sad to say the he's very much DEAD, my friend.
The last chronological game we'll ever see him in is Alpha 3, which was a prequel to the original 2 anyway. Unless of course, they decide to do more prequels, but I doubt it. If this is coming 10 years after 3...I'm expecting a '2nd Impact' and '3rd Strike' type of trilogy for this game also.
DONT BALLS IT UP CAPCOM!!!
the hype for this is gonna be massive, hopefully capcom really pull their fingers out and give the real SF fans a game to be proud of!
EDIT @ Keowrath, so right dude, i still remember that christmas when my parents got me a SNES and the limited edition SF2 in its tin. ah, just typing this brings a tear to my eye.... what a game. remeber the opening... camera pans down a building to show 2 guys bobbing up and down... then BAM, the black dude socks it to the white guy, SMACK, right in the kisser. just doesnt get any better than that.
Yeah, visions of Capcom all stars or whatever that hunk a sheet game was come to mind. Please put in the time and the effort on this one guys.
SF2 brings back so many great memorys, I pray for SFIV to do the same!
EDIT@ MD, Hahahaha I remember it coming to the consoles and wondering how the Fu*K I'd pull out a dragon punch or spinning pile driver on a D-pad!? And now it's like 2nd nature! LOL
air dashing would be cool, to me guilty gear is the best 2d fighter, i just luv the speed of the game. they just need to kick up the speed in street fighter 4, that would make it even better.
however, I kinda disagree with #5. Sure I don't want too much characters to choose from. But I need some variety. Like Keowrath said, bring back our favorites (Guile, Cammy, Sagat, etc.).
And come out with a Special Edition or something (w/ Hori Arcade Stick included)
Top 2 Thing to add:
1.Add blood and violence.
2.Make it M rated.
... dude you crack me up. all you ever seem to want is gore GORE GORE!!! while i agree, i wouldnt want it to go over the top like MK or anything.
personally id like to see a few more combos thrown in there, i love players like Geese from SNK, his move are so difficult yet so rewarding.
not sure about the M rating, thats unfar on up and coming SF fans, imagine if SF2 was 'M', i probably wouldnt of been able to play it at such a young age, then i wouldnt be the SF master iam today lol.
I'm so old school yeah, Them 3D Street Fighter games don't hold anything when compared to 2D fighting <3
My friends all LOVE 3rd Strike so if it was something like that yeah.
OH, NO 3D would be great xD
I agree with 2D, but there have been soooooo many different versions of SFII that I hope this is more then just a graphic upgrade. If it has to be 3D so be it but It better play damn good.
Evil ken!!!! that would be great
I seriously doubt this game will be 2D. If it came out 10yrs ago...maybe..but not now. We are in a gaming age...dominated by 3D graphics. The all the top-selling fighting games in past 5-6 years have all been 3D fighters. 2D fighters unfortunatley are almost extinct. There are a few remaining...Guilty Gear and Rumble Fish....but even KOF is 3D now. I've accepted the fact that this game will be 3D. 3D doesn't mean a bad thing. Before I go any further I would like to say that I seriously doubt that Capcom is going to Allow Arika to make SF4 so it can't be as bad as SF EX+Alpha.
This will be capcom's first in-house 3D-fighter since Project Justice(a decent game itself). The question that should be on everyone's minds is who is developing the game....Capcom USA or Capcom Japan. Capcom Japan has been quiet on the SF front almost to the point of abandoning it for many years. Capcom USA currently has control of SF because of the still rather large fanbase that SF has here in america. Capcom USA is responsible for the Street Fighter HDRemix, the Street Fighter Comics...etc. Who is making it is a much bigger issue than rather it will be in 3D or not. SF HD remix is using the old code with tweaked graphics...explaining why its 2D. If CapcomUSA make SF4 I hope they don't fall into the same crap MK has with the overly combo-heavy gameplay that has plagued MK since MK3. I hope whoever makes it..isn't afraid to try something new to re-vitalize the franchise. A Tekken-styled or DOA-styled SF wouldn't be bad at all. Tekken-style would be better as the control scheme is similiar to previous games. Dynamic-Blocking wouldn't hurt either. And if it retains the art-style from the trailer..it would look amazing too.
*edit* It is definitely Capcom USA that's handling the game. If you go to Capcom's website...there is no mention of street fighter(that I've seen) at all on the Japanese page. It has its own site on the USA page. So its definitly Capcom USA. I sure hope they don't fall into the UBER-combo trap that many american fighting game developers tend to succumb to.
