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.

Correction:

SFIV was based after SFII
SFIII doesn't factor into SFIV (minus possible SFIII characters)

On its own though, it doesn't factor with SFIII, as it stands.

By the way, the SF sequel they're talking 'bout is SFIV: Dash

Just like Alpha3 was the sequel to Alpha2.

The proper term would be "mini-sequel"
It's know around the SF community, in which I'm a bit part of that it's not SFV

SFV is believed to come out in some 3 to 4 years down the line.

What I don't get is why did Wii fanboys want this game on the Wii? Waggle + Street Fighter 4 = disaster. And good luck getting a match going with friend codes. God just buy a PS3!

Anyways, I'm hella stoked about this. But I really think it would be wise of Capcom to release a sequel sometime next year. Tekken is just way too popular. Some new character DLC will suffice if you ask me. Either way, I'm getting it.

I agree, fighting games + wii just doesnt mix. given that smash bros isnt really a fighting, more of a party game. All i know is i tried bleach shattered blades and it was crap. You spend the whole time wagging the controller and it got old. I'm hoping tatsunoko vs capcom fares better though.

i dont think the game was difficult, it was cheap....well at least only the last boss seth is. I could handle playing against the other characters fine but seth is just crazy. I wonder if anyone got the trophy for beating gouken on the hardest difficulty. I think that goal is impossible for me just because of seth. Any idea if they're planning to patch the game to fix seth?

I've got that trophy. Actually there are some holes in the AI you can exploit. Try using Ryu or Ken and do this: Forward Throw > Fully charged focus attack. The AI is dumb and almost never registers the correct response. They'll just get hit over and over by that little trick. You could also use Zangief and use his Lariat attack (3 Punches), just use that one move with him.

I personally don't find Seth cheap for a couple of reasons. Mainly his defense is terrible and virtually every character can perform a stun combo against him. He's really easy once you get an offense going on him. But if you really want to get the trophy, try using the "exploits" I mentioned.

SF IV was overrated. The graphics weren't great, the pre-match-up art was horrible and it was very boring. I played it a bit and it's been sitting in the drawer. I wonder what they'll do with V.

SFIV did get boring quick. Online match up system needs refining too. I hate how Capcoms match up system works. The graphics I did like. I liked the water color brushed look it has. Game play seemed much the same. SF has and probably always will be my favorite fighter but I agree IV wasn't anything special. For me it may never be better than Street Fighter II Turbo Hyper Fighting on the SNES.

All these arguments as to why it was bad is like saying that Metal Gear Solid 4 sucked because:

-The gameplay was the same as MGS3
-The online system sucked since you had to subscribe through Konami's site


Or that Tekken sucks because the gameplay is exactly the same with the same characters and the modes are the same as in all Tekken games

Or that Virtua Fighter sucks (best 3D fighter, period) because the modes are all the same as in previous VF games. And because the gameplay's the same

Ooooooooooooooooooooh so then Soul Calibur sucks too because it's the same crap with seen in Soul Calibur II and III
^And its online system is worse than SFIV's

PS: What fighters do you all actually consider better than SFIV this generation? I'd like to know them

@fluffer,
Do you know the definition of a "reason?"
I could say you as a person are boring as hell. And by your logic I wouldn't need to back that up.

You're boring, period :3
Awesome making claims without reason!

@www,
Check out psxe's reviews on both games

SCIV: 8.8
SFIV: 9.4

@jawknee,
Anything special because you say so? Or rather, you just don't like fighting games at all?

To have Virtua Fighter 5 and Super Smash Bros Brawl right in your face and claim there hasn't been great fighting games this gen shows your lack knowledge and interest in the fighting genre.

And not defensive, ignorance/false claims are not to be taken lightly.

I just saw the comments and had to laugh. I'm glad I go outside everyday. My reason for finding the game boring is that I've played the different versions of this game since they came out many, many years ago. The game isn't exciting and that is my opinion. No need to go into detail as the game itself doesn't warrant it.

This is your problem jawknee: You make claims on something you now NOTHING 'bout

First of all: You used SFIV as an example and yet you say you didn't mean to?

Second of all: If you add more things to SFIV such as characters as DLC you'll alienate the fan base. Some will have these characters, some will not. It makes it an unfair playing field. It's like having all the guns available to you in an online FPS and only having half of them. Fair?

That's why a disc release is truly the only option.

Scarecrow, I'm with you on everyone's convictions of SFIV here; they are not solid. However, you could have made your point without contributing to the ignorance by ragging on Tekken. Say what you want, but Tekken only has minor balance issues since Tekken 5 Dr and no, combos don't just kill your opponent. You'd have to apply that logic to SFIV as well, and Virtua Fighter. Combos in any fighter can do well up to 70% damage.

But enough about that. Some of you guys are just stating your preference of SF games as if it's fact. When talking about fighting games, you have to consider a few things like: balance, depth, and playability. SFIV has all these things, whereas SF2 Turbo is old and doesn't have the amount of polish present in today's fighters. In contrast, SFIV has better balance, and foremost depth. Take for example, the additions of ultra combos, ex cancels, and the focus attack. Are these things present in SF2 turbo? That's right, they're not. Furthermore, these additions don't inhibit the feel of the game rather they add a layer of depth you can't get in older SF games. The only SF that can hold a candle to SFIV in terms of depth, etc is SFIII, period.

So there, just because you may have a preference for nostalgia and easier games, doesn't make an older game better than the new renditions. It's a preference and you can have one sure, but to put it off as fact and say x game is boring in the process, is I dare say ignorant. And no this isn't subject to debate, SFIV is awesome, BlazBlue is awesome, and Tekken 6 will be awesome. So let's put an end to all this "my preference > than yours" stuff.

SFIII's boss was hard as hell

In fact, SFIV is the first SF to allow a difficulty level of EASIEST. That's right, there's EASIEST, VERY EASY, EASY, NORMAL, HARD, and Very HARD. I've tested it out and you can beat Seth on Easiest without using specials, all you have to do is jump and kick.

I expected that kind of response from you Jawknee. Take it personal and make it personal; that's what you're good at. I'm not "arguing" as you put it, simply pointing out you don't have a leg to stand on.You're taking my words and making it personal when it's not. Grow up. Did I ever say you fail at life if you suck at SF games? Right, I didn't. Go ahead and try to paint me out to be a nerd for simply acquiring more knowledge about a video game. You'd again be venturing into a subject you have zero knowledge of, and you paint yourself out to be a pompous ass.

What I find funny though, is I couldn't (and wouldn't mind you) go on a page about say Infamous or Uncharted and call it a average game without getting blasted. Yet, people feel it's safe to jump on the bandwagon when it's not a PS3 exclusive here and call out other games. And before you put words in my mouth Jawknee, this bit isn't about you; it's about a lot of people's attitudes towards other games on this site. It's hypocritical to say the least.

Erronous argument

If you have enough friends who can play the game with you it doesn't matter if you go to an Arcade or not.

In fact, with the console, you have the game with you 24/7. There's a certain advantage there.

Note: not arguing that online is better than anything. And the online in SFIV is better than Soul Calibur IV's so in that regard SFIV did really well.

The problem with the online isnt because it's a fighter, it's becuase of Capcom. Their online match up system stinks equally across all their games.

Another note, I prefer the thumb pad on a console to a joystick. Always have. Even since the good ol'days of SFII Turbo Hyper Fighting on the SNES and Arcade.

Other than the art style facelift, it was pretty much just the same Street Fighter that it's always been. Not saying that that's a bad thing totally, but I was expecting a little more after all the hype. With a lower number of fighters on the roster, I'm spoiled after all the VS games in the series, and an almost exact copy of the gauge that is used in the SNK games, there isn't enough to make me keep coming back to play this when there are better fighters available.

Right, because Focus attack, revenge system, new physics is nothing new

You want a 50+ character roster full of unbalance? Because I can tell you right now that MvC2 was full of balance problems

Same with CvS2

While on the SNK bit, how did they copy the SNK games gauge bar?

As far as I know SF had a super and life bar way before any of SNK's games.

Again, if you know nothing 'bout SF, you should not be claiming spewing out BS

And you should stop trying to change everybodys opinion just because they don't share yours.

Street Fighter wasn't the first to use life bars, Yie Ar Kung-Fu was if I remember correctly, and it came out around 5-6 years earlier. But yeah it beat SNK since they didn't put any out until the same year as Street Fighter 2. Samurai Shodown introduced the Rage Guage in '93. Street Fighter wouldn't get their version until the following year so SNK beat them with that one.

And I'm sorry if I prefer having more fighters to choose from. It may cause balance issues, but it also allows more variety, options, and replay value.

So you prefer unbalance more than anything?

Well if you like getting owned in fighting games, that's interesting....and weird
That's the first time I've actually heard someone who'd sacrifice unbalance for variety. As if 26 characters isn't more than what stuff like Blazblue has. Funny how you contradict yourself.

By the way, I still don't see how SFIV copied SNK's gauges in any way

Eventhub's an amateur fan-based website.
It's all rumors, most of it debunked and ridiculed at www.Capco-untity.com

That list is way off, I've followed SF's development very well. And that list doesn't make sense at all.

Furthermore, I heard it was some post made by ONE GUY and people started to claim it was true.

I remember back in the days playing SF3: Third strike at a arcade that was a great game. My favorite street fighter game before SF4 was probably SF EX + alpha that was a good game, probably out there people will disagree. I want to go back and play SF alpha 1 and 2 haven't played those yet.

I've been wondering about this one. Is it worth $60 bucks?

Blazblue is a terrific fighter. Best in a while. Look around the net for deals on it. Picked up the limited edition a week ago on Ebay, brand new, for $47.

melee games are ok
But those get 10 times more repetitive than command fighters.

So I personally don't see them as superior

AHA! I remember a lot of you complaining 'bout SF because it got boring/repetitive?

Blazblue trumps SFIV in the repetitive/melee aspect any day of the week.

I really thought the character art direction was hideous. Hopefully it gets an upgrade.
