The Fans Will Dictate Next-Gen Future Of Street Fighter

The next generation could bring about a lot of changes, and we're not just referring to a graphical upgrade.

More player freedom and customization will be the order of the day, and that will likely apply to all genres. The fighting category enjoyed a resurgence this generation and in looking ahead Street Fighter guru Yoshinori Ono says the next-gen enhancements will be dictated by the fans.

"But really the ultimate goal would be to have the players themselves create their own characters to some degree. We call it user created content, or user created design.

So in that case it would be like, the Ryu that Yoshinori Ono made is the best, or the Ryu that other guy made sucks. If we could have that interaction between the fans: I've created this great character so why don't you come try it, or that guy's character he made isn't so good. Why isn't it that good? If we can get that back and forth between the community and create more dialogue and interaction within the game, that would be the best case scenario."

Basically, Ono concluded that "it comes down to the ideas and information we have now and the requests of the fans." He added that they'll need some time because of course, you need a great deal of time to make a game, especially when new hardware is involved. One new feature you might see in a next-gen fighter is the ability to damage the opponent's clothes; you know, rip 'em right off...

""So maybe the guy's clothes could get ripped off during the fight. Chun-Li would be like, 'Oh no!'"

Hmm...the possibilities could result in an "M" rating even without any blood.

Character creation would be a welcome addition. They'd have to balance the skill sets out though. I'd hate to see it how MK Armageddon was on PS2 where some created characters were pretty overpowering. I wish I played SCIV more to see how that was online with character creation.

Clothing damage would be awesome..not sure why we'd have to wait til next-gen for that though..

I know, Mortal Kombat is doing it now. There was even a fighter in the original Xbox that had character and costume damage.

All new roster. I know its gonna be a departure but maybe that can shake things up and breathe new life in the series, not that it needs it.

That would be good as well. Even bringing some characters from SFIII 3rd strike would be cool too

Char creation is cool in Soul Calibur, but I don't think I would like it Street Fighter. It would be bad for the hardcore arcade/tournament scene, which is where a lot of their biggest fans are.

Having my fighters penis wobble around whilst I'm fighting someone online may give me an advantage
