Capcom Prepping Street Fighter V?
Don't forget: Street Fighter IV is one of the best games of the year, and after returning the long-running franchise to its former glory, everyone was instantly pining for Street Fighter V.
After talks for SFIV on the Wii evidently fizzled, NintendoEverything says they translated a new message at the official SVIV blog, and it says news on a sequel is headed our way. Natsuki Shiozawa reveals that Capcom will have an announcement to this effect "very soon," and it's possible Capcom may unveil the sequel at the Tokyo Game Show at the end of the month. The game sold very well and now that the developers have proved they can produce one hell of an experience, by all rights, a sequel should be almost inevitable. It seems that Street Fighter - as a franchise - could be legitimate competition to the likes of Namco's Tekken; Tekken 6 still hasn't released, but it's bound to turn plenty of heads. And if Capcom is quick to announce a sequel to SFIV, fighting fans everywhere should be happy with the selection on store shelves. We'll have to wait and see what happens at TGS (Capcom has other stuff to talk about), but in the meantime, SFIV fans should just wait as patiently as possible.
Our only suggestion would be to not make SFV as cripplingly difficult when it comes to certain lame repeating moves on the part of your opponent. ...but we're certain all the hardcore masters out there will only laugh at that request.
