Street Fighter will come to PS4 and Xbox One at "some time or other", but Capcom doesn't have any plans to bring the series to Wii U, producer Yoshinori Ono has revealed.
Maybe Nintendo fans will start a petition.
If they were honestly tired of being treated this way, they'd be smart enough not to buy Capcom games on the Wii U... but hey, some people are just gluttons for this kind of punishment.
Yeah because boycotting games will make fans happy and Capcom more dedicated to the platform /s
Oh man! Another IP not heading to the WiiU? Seems like this is becoming a trend. Why aren't WiiU fans demanding MORE from Nintendo when it comes to these type of things? Instead they resort on trying to get others to boycott the developers all because a certain game won't release on their system of choice. ;)
That will damage Nintendo in the long run by decreasing 3rd party sales on the Wii U even more and would mess up their Monster Hunter exclusivity deal that they have going on now, what becomes of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate if you boycott Capcom games?
@LOL_WUT Pretty sure most Wii-U fans don't boycott a company if they don't get a game, Nintendo hasn't had great 3rd party support for a quite sometime so most buy the system solely for Nintendo's offerings.
Heck they're not buying Capcom games anyway, along with Ubi, Konami, Activision, etc Just wish Nintendo kept Rare
@LOL_Wut Cause that's exactly what they never do. Demand anything from Nintendo. In their eyes, Nintendo is perfect, the best, can't do no wrong and have no room for improvement. Capcom, in it's current financial state can't risk a port that won't get sales and we all know that the FGC plays on Xbox/Playstation, so obviously they will go with the safe choice.
So because were not getting street fighter which hasnt been good since street fightr 2 turbo edition, we shouldnt buy Monster Hunter?
It's Nintendo's own fault for not creating a next-gen machine with close enough parity in power to make ports easy.
Why is it Nintendo's fault ? Are they going to say give us your game or else? Are they supposed to hold a Gun to Capcoms head? Capcoms in trouble any way so it's there loss.
@Dannycr: You mean Sony fanboys right? Those Shuhei brotherhood ones.
I don't see how this is Nintendo's fault. It is just Capcom being lazy...again.. Capcom really doesn't support Nintendo outside of MH or VC.
they wont even bother all they need is smash bros
Because no one could possibly be a fan of both. But "I don't even want it" responses are typical with these types of reveals.
No, they won't. I didn't purchase my Wii U for the next Street Fighter game. Games like that is why I have the PS4 & X1. IMO The Wii U still has the most and best exclusives. Wii U>PS4>X1 3rd party games mean nothing when you have all the consoles.
I'm shocked (!) >_>
If they do, i want a brand new SF. New engine and everything, no ports pls
Well, didn't that COO already announce SF5, along with a new pay-for-advantage system? LOL, then Ono immediately tried to do PR damage control by stating there'll be no pay4advantage coming with it. So, they already soured the whole announcement for me. I'm still wondering if they're planning on making the SF5 game for hardcore fans again, like they said they would long ago. I'm sure that'll be out the window if there's really a p4a system to go with it. Whatever, we'll just have to wait and see.
Except Ono and others didnt just say there would be no advantage of the sort . They outright stated the guy was talking out of his a** and merely hypothetising on a game they havent even started conceptualise And please , Arcsys games added mechanics to lower the entry barrier and yet their games , including P4a are easily as technical , if not more than SF . SF is way more mainstream that those titles , so that's hardly the issue there What do you even think Ultra are for ? It's a clutch recovery mechanism at heart , wich "purists" initially disliked and still dealt with easily . And focus ? it was a dumbed down parry system wich is now quite popular .
I personally despise Focus. It just doesn't feel like SF. It's a step up from EO(Easy Operation) that was made for the same reason, to attempt to bring in more casuals. I just am not a fan of it. Also, the higher ups at Crapcom seem to have way too much power. They've done it with every other franchise they own, franchises way more far reaching than SF. I don't see why Ono would be able to overstep them with SF, they're gonna do something stupid like 'Gems' in SFxTekken, which is a p2w setup. They're just horrible, a fighting game with p2w aspects, they have no limits to their greed and idiocy. They don't realize they're cannibalistic greed is losing them money and degrading every franchise they own.
But while not the most newbie friendly , SF's job isnt to be the most impermeable fighting game actually . There are plenty other niche title for that (or spin offs) , that delves into "anal retentive" execution and combo complexity for all tastes . So i dont see how focus (or Ultra for that matter) made it not feel like SF . Hell at some point , when introduced ; people accused Super moves to be a clutch too , so that misplaced feeling , imo , is nothing new , with people still accepting it in the end . SF favor quality of execution but was already at heart about being a chess tactician in a fight . If anything it's when it lost itself into adding tons of pointless layers of complexity , with SF3 , in a transition era , on top of the rise of the 3d ... that Street fighter losts its place and footing in mainstream gaming . Either way , people complained as per any big mechanic changes , and yet who's on top again and generate the most interest in most competitive outlets ? SF4
@Baka-akaB, Well, I hope they can stay on top with it, with every other one of their franchises slowly slipping away from them. All because of greed, and mainly for the same reason they added 'Focus' - to make the game more accessible to casuals. I think 'Focus' is way better implemented for that purpose than how they completely changed the genres of other titles like RE - in the name of making it more mainstream. I still just don't like 'Focus' personally though, but don't think it ruins the game, just feels funky to me. I really hope SF5 is good and doesn't have any 'gems' or anything like that. I dream of them going back to just throwing as much in the game as they can, rather than doing what they did in SFxTekken by locking characters on the disc and taking the microtransactions to a new level. Please Capcom, just leave that out of Street Fighter, it's just a fighter, you don't have to vamp us on every little thing always. That's why you're doing so bad as a company as a whole. The SF team begged to make SF, that's probably why they had a little more freedom than the other teams maybe. The higher ups were more focused on screwing RE up at that moment still. You can see though, how they're slowly overdoing it with the same practices now and forcing themselves on the SF team, SFxTekken did horribly because of this. I don't think it dropped in price so quickly cuz it was a bad fighter, just people couldn't deal with the ridiculous anti-consumerism and locked-characters and 'gems' was taking it too far. Just let the damn team make SF5 without breathing over their necks, it'll make you more money that way Capcom.
Street fighter 4 definitive edition for the PS4, X1, and PC. I wouldn't put it into capcom to release that game on PS3, and 360 while still calling it definitive.
They'll do anything. What's funny to me, is long ago - they said they wouldn't make a crazy amount of versions of SF4. When people were making fun of SF2, SSF2, SSF2T, SSF2HT. Now, looking back, they have basically done just that with SF4. Though, SSF4 was an amazing upgrade. Arcade Edition was eehhh, other than the rebalancing, that could have came regardless. Ultra is taking all its new backgrounds from SFxTekken and a few characters from there, just altered. I mean, I love Hugo, and was thrilled to hear he was coming to SF4 - but yeah, they're doing exactly what they said they wouldn't do.
I dont need it. I have Super Smash Bros. which is better. I rather have Soul Calibur VI and Dead or Alive 6 for Wii U.
You'd better hope that they think Wii U versions are worth making, then.
Any new console versions of dead or alive or soul Calibur wouldn't come out on the wii u. Nintendo has been on a downward spiral since super nintedno. Wii had fluke console success because of a gimmick. Until they understand you need 3rd parties. It'll see the same console downward spiral
I see you remembered to take your drugs today. Smash Brothers is better than SF? Come on now. Smash Brothers is a fantastic game, and very fun. But SF is the epitome of fighting games.
They arent even the same kind of fighter, so I can imagine a few WiiU only owners will be annoyed by this news even if they have smash bros (which is a game I really dont see the appeal of).
You and OtakuDJKing are making the same mistake: stating opinions as facts. Yes, both Street Fighter and Smash are fighting games, but both are so wildly different from each other that you can't state, objectively, that one is better than the other. All you can do is state which one YOU like better, and that is called an opinion. This is pretty much like comparing Gran Turismo to Mario Kart. Both are racing games, both are excellent in what they do, but they are also completely different beasts from each other.
@ deafdani I'm sorry. I forgot that people weren't smart enough to tell the difference between opinions and facts. If I say Street Fighter is better than Smash Brothers, thats still an opinion, even though I didn't say "in my opinion", in my sentence. If you, or anyone else can't tell the difference then I don't know what to tell you.
@deafdani I have Super Smash Bros. which is better. "I" My Opinion
@ OtakuDJ And you are certainly entitled to that OPINION. Me saying you were on drugs was just a stupid joke and thanks for not getting all butt-hurt over it. Your OPINION which you spoke is certainly not an OPINION that I agree with, however you are free to have that OPINION. Just I am free to have my OPINION. And one more thing: OPINION!
Well.... when it comes to ratings and sales....Smash Bros destroys Street Fighter
Speaking in terms of a Sony fanboy, meaning in sales and nothing else, Streetfighter is not even in the same league with Smash Bros. Speaking as a huge fighting game fan, Street Fighter is not even close to the best fighting games. Mortal Kombat is way better, Injustice, even the Dragonball fighters from Bandai Namco are better. Only Tekken is worse, in my opinion.
@ Chrischi1988 Mortal Kombat better than SF4 ? I think you might have a hard time convincing anyone but yourself on that one. Let me guess, SF4 got less popular with the Nintendo fans all of a sudden (but I bet they liked it just fine when the DS got a port).
Not that wanna wish you ill and jinx it ... but it's unlikely the wiiU would get either Soul Calibur VI and DOA 6 ... They'd most likely be game released well into the next gen cycle and skip the ps3/360 too anyway
thank OtakuDJK1NG for the laugh.. it was needed. Please do'nt forget to ask kindly TEAM NINJA for your DOA6 on wii U.
Let's make a bet. I'll bet you whatever you want that, when they say that DOA6 and Soul Calibur VI are not coming to the WiiU, he's going to show up and say that he doesn't even like the games and Smash Bros is way better "in his opinion".
Does it matter? Why are you so feed up with his opinion? What you dont understand is, that in most cases Smash Bros is better. It depends on what you like on these kind of games. DOA6 and Soul Calibur are nice games, but you compare them to one of nintendos most successful franchises, that is a joke man.
How are they a joke ? Beyond Smash selling better obviously . It's a great game but aiming at a broader and more mainstream audience with a slur of popular characters . I'm not sure how you could even go there , even as a fellow Smash fan . let's jus stick to it "depends what you like on these kind of games"
Sales doesn't make a game trully sucessfull. Brawl sold over 12 millions but fans are back playing melee or hacking the game so it can play like they wished it would. The new smash bros will certainly be a commercial sucess, but whenever the fighting community embrace it or reject it remain to be seen.
@Chrischi1988 Are you serious? Street Fighter was/is the foundation of the FGC, it is the most professionally played fighting game in existence. Actually, most Capcom fighting games are. That includes SSF2Turbo, SF3rd Strike, MVC2, UMVC3 and USF4. Smash recently was (finally) acknowledged by the FGC and it brought something new and nice to EVO, but the FGC lives and thrives because of Street Fighter. Comparing both games is ridiculous and using sales as a base for quality is even worse. That's like saying Mario Kart is a better racing game than Gran Turismo because of the sales. Two completely different things. PSD: Yes, I'm a smash player, in fact, I play Smash more than SF but I would never consider it better, just different.
Kidtendo fans only support 1st party games for the most part. Why would a 3rd parties want their games on an underpowered system. If you're a huge Nintendo fan then you'll love wii u. If you want the best system out there then you won't be buying a wii u. No hate just the truth
best is opinion. to me ps4 is the worst full of ports no free online. lack of features compared to the x1. 2 games look good on ps4 wild and rime or not sure how to spell it and the sad thing is these games will sell poorly on the ps4 they would do better on the wii u lol well more like rime would.
That's not an opinion. That's you trying to get a rise out of everyone.
You just don't find anything else to say. No free Online? Wii U online is worst than PS3s, which is free as well. Only two games look good? Yeah, as if they need to be as rainbow-looking as Nintendo games. Sell poorly on PS4? Ask that to Ubisoft after the poor sales of Zombie U and the success of Watchdogs on PS4. It might lack features to the X1, but both PS4, X1, even PS3 and 360 have all more features than Wii U, not opinion, fact, deal with it.
you never buy street fighter when it first comes out you wait for the 6th one before you buy it that way hopefully you get everything
wiiu is in second place f them
Oh gosh Hyper Street fighter IV!
Capcom logic: develop games for the most expensive platforms, retails for $60 a pop. Ignore cheapest platform to develop for, retails for $60 a pop. I know the company doesn't make $60 per game, but obviously they're sold in at comparable prices. If they can afford to be this picky, they obviously aren't hurting very much for money.
Releasing a game got a cost . You can't develop for a system that want little to do with the genre and waste money . It's harsh but so far the truth . Tekken Tag 2 offered a whole complete package that could hardly be faulted on WiiU , were people present ? Nope . And i can't even 100% blame them . Wich fighting game fanatics wouldnt already own a ps3 or 360 , even if they got a wii or wii u? And it wasnt just on WiiU and that game . Capcom was satisfied with Tatsunoko sales , because they had a very low bar of sales expectations for the game . It was one of the absolute top 5 fighting game of that generation , but was widely ignored , except by an obviously dedicated crowd . Sometimes there is just such a thing as a specific user base for some genre . The latest nintendo consoles is excellent in multiple genre of games , but pure fighting games got its crowd elsewhere .
In Tatsunoko vs. Capcom's case, I would say it was likely the unusual mash-up of unfamiliar characters. Tatsunoko is big in Japan yes, but it probably didn't do very well there because they're predominantly mobile gamers. Heck, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 did similarly in Japan as did Tatsunoko. In the case of Tekken, well I don't think anyone with a PlayStation 3 or XBOX 360 is going to invest in a Wii U to play the "definitive" version. It isn't a system seller, but if you happen to have a Wii U, it's definitely a good pick-up. I think Capcom should give the Wii U a chance with a new gen Street Fighter (Street Fighter V, not another superfluous remake of IV). Will it do as well as say a PlayStation 4 or XBOX One version? Probably not, but that doesn't mean it won't be profitable. The standards to break profit are lower so it evens out, but Capcom won't know for sure unless they try. A game like Tatsunoko is a poor assessment of how a fighting game will perform on a Nintendo platform.
Tatsunoko is one example , it's not as if those were the sole fighting games released over the Wii Platform . The consoles received a mix of ports and exclusive without even looking like there was an interest for the genre , unlike even handheld consoles . They all flopped , even cheap SNK compilation or Guilty Gear , wich they probably didnt expect to sell tons of . I think you're overestimating the standards to break profits here . The fighting game scene is dead when you can't even reach the ceiling of the 3ds for the fighting genre , and it's already incredibly low and dead on 3ds . Most importantly , all major fighting game publishers did try something . Also quite blunty , about SFV , why so sure the console could even run it without a downgrade ? I doubt it would with Mortal Kombat X , and without expecting the most beautiful game of the world , it will probably be a true next gen project . Same with franchises like Tekken , soul calibur , DOA . Wich they wont bother making two set of games , one "next gen" , one definitively downgraded , for
Call me back when the WII U will have proper fighting stick support. And then maybe the community of fighting gamers will pay attention for the console.
Well, if you mean a Wii U specific fightstick, there's the MadCatz's Tekken TT edition... There's a pair for Wii, which are compatible, as well.
I want a complete game this time.
damn wiiu is a complete mess 3rd party wise it's completely retarded, nintendo had an extra year before ps4/X1 came out and blew it up big time i love nintendo and the wiiu but without 3rd party support, you're F*****
LOL, not even. They haven't had the big-hitters from most of the third parties for the past three generations or so now, and it still hasn't killed them off. They're not going to die without multiplats, so long as they continue to get some good exclusives and indies keep making games as good as Shovel Knight. They did screw up that first year, though, there's no denying that. Nintendo should have put their foot down on third party shenanigans by saying "no" to all of the incredibly bad ports, and they should have had more first party titles ready in the beginning to make up for what we all knew was going to be a huge lack of anything noteworthy from third parties. But that just means that the first year was inconsequential to their currently rising success, in the end. Wii U isn't going to die and neither is Nintendo as a whole. They'll get fewer multiplats and will have to pay out of pocket for third party exclusives for a while, but they'll still get a lot of really note-worthy games.
if they can first balance out a game before giving 5 millions rehashes then maybe I'd take them seriously. other than that I don't really care for anything else they make in the fighting genre
IMO Super Street Fighter IV is the most milked game over the last few years. How many versions of that have been released? The last true Street Fighter is "Street Fighter HD" on the 360 & PS3.
... I know it's probably because of the WiiU Gamepad, but still gotta say it. ... but you'll still put it on the 3DS.
I hope Capcom don't take to long to bring the game to PS4, loved playing SSF4 on my PS3 before it died exactly 30 days before the PS4 launch.....need my SF fix and still have my SSF4 tournament edition arcade fight stick, hurry up Capcom make it happen ASAP.
You've got more chances of seeing a port of Ultra , than even seeing a pic of SF5 in the next two years
I'm cool with USF4 too, i can wait on SF5 because I rather Capcom take their time with the next gen SF.
I think this is their way of acknowledging that the Wii U already has its premier fighter, and that they think Street Fighter likely wouldn't come close enough to sales of Smash to justify making a port. It's a sad truth, but a truth nontheless; Capcom is scared of taking the risk, and Nintendo fans are the ones that suffer for it. If Nintendo were far richer, I'd just say we should get them to money-hat these things so that they come to the system regardless, but they're not Scrooge McDuck rich...
i think it has more to do with no one ever going to buy another version of sf4 on a different console. i mean how many sales can they expect wiiU to sell? 100k? how long would the online services be worth to extend?
Nothing to do with smash , it's not even the same fanbase even if not mutually exclusive . The audience for those game just isnt on Wii U thus far . And why would they ? The audience get its exclusive and multi games on ps3/360 , and are slowly moving on to the next games on ps4/xb1 like Guilty gear and MKX (or even Killer Instinct) Hell the accessories alone shows it .There is like what one meager wii U arcade stick out in the wild ? And no , or very few fighting pads . People arent necessarily saying that to be contrary and bash . Hell as a fighting game afficionado , i sure could wish for the genre to take roots on the nintendo consoles ... but it didnt happen and isnt happening anytime soon beyond stuff like Smash and Dbz/Naruto games
I like how the Wiiu section has articles about how bad the Wiiu is doing and how it WON'T be getting games lol. I feel as though I've wandered into a funhouse.
