As time has told, it wouldn’t be long before the “Super” version of Street Fighter IV was released. With ten new combatants (2 new to the franchise), a host of improved online modes, and the return of the bonus stage, could this installment of Street Fighter stand up to the speed of “Hyper Fighting” or the power of “Third Strike”. Check out this inFocus to find out if this new challenger stands a chance.
Welcome to the Lens of Truth’s first attempt at a Retrospect Head2Head. Now before anyone gets excited, we decided to start off this new section with a game almost every person should have heard of once in their life, and that’s Street Fighter. With Super Street Fighter IV rocking the industry as we speak, we thought it’s the prime time to focus or lens on its predecessor, Street Fighter III 3rd Strike. Stick around as we step back a few years and crown our first retrospect Head2Head champion.
Street Fighter IV may be the best 3-D looking Street Fighter to date but it wasn’t the first. The original Street Fighter EX was made for Arcades on the Playstation based Sony ZN-1 System in 1996. What the ZN-1 did was finally give Capcom the ability to create a Street Fighter game in a 3-D world. But is it any good? Is it worth tracking down this hard to find PS1 rendition? Find out in our latest Retro Review.
The Lens of Truth was given the opportunity to play Super Street Fighter IV early, thanks to Play N Trade, Lake Mary Fl. We reviewed the original Street Fighter IV over a year ago, which finally proved that Street Fighter looks awesome in its 3D form. So the question remains does Super Street Fighter IV have what it takes to keep the genre fresh? Watch the video and read on to see how the newest Street Fighter fares under our lens.
With the SFA series, Capcom was able to fill in the backstory for many of our favorite characters pasts’ from SF2. It also gave the company the means of delivering us another set of 2D fighters unparalleled by its rivals. While the original SFA never made its way to the Super NES, a much better game somehow did – Street Fighter Alpha 2. Find out if this one’s worth the search (or Virtual Console download) in our latest retro Review.
Super Street Fighter IV is on the horizon. It will boast new characters, as well as the return of some old favorites, along with rebalancing the original cast…what fan would ask for anything more. Check out the trailer after the jump for a glimpse at some old friends and a peek at a newcomer to the cast.
After many rumors, Capcom has officially announced Super Street Fighter IV for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. What we know so far (thanks to Gamespot) is the game will feature a total of eight new characters, it won’t be full priced, and gamers who own the original should expect a special bonus. As for the fighters – T. Hawk, Dee Jay, and new character Juri were the only three new fighters revealed but speculation on the others has already begun. Expect to be playing SSFIV in the Spring of 2010. Video inside.
From Capcom’s latest twitter entry – “Alright already! Marvel VS Capcom 2 officially goes live on XBLA on July 29. PSN date to be announced soon.” Capcom also gave out the game’s price – 1200 MS Points ($15.00). So there you have it. At least it won’t end up taking as long as SSF2T:HD to release. Battle you on the 29th!
Capcom announced the return of one of the fighting game crossovers.. Not unlike Capcom’s popular Marvel vs. Street Fighter series, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars pits a number of characters from two popular franchises against one another. The game’s Japanese release saw nine characters from Tatsunoko Productions’ various anime franchises join the same number of fighters from Capcom’s stable. Click the link to find out more.
Capcom has been teasing us for two weeks now with the announcement of two “mystery games” they will be bringing to E3. Today they revealed one of those games, and it is Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars on the Nintendo Wii! After a little doubt by U.S. fans, the vs. fighter will indeed be making its way stateside. Click the link for more on the Capcom Blog announcement.
After months and months of rumors and speculation Capcom has finally announced Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for XBL and PSN. The game will hit both networks this summer for 1200 Microsoft points or $14.99 on PSN. MvsC2 won’t be getting the HD treatment SSFT2 got - 1up writes ”It’s essentially the same game that we all know and love from the arcade/DreamCast/PS2/Xbox days, but more affordable and delivered via the Internet.” Good enough for this fan. Check out a video inside.
Capcom has finally announced the arrival date of Championship Mode for Street Fighter IV. It will have all the features which should have been included from the beginning. At least Capcom made up for this by setting the right price.
With the overwhelming success of Marvel vs Capcom, fighting fans craved more. Capcom released what was to be the “be all end all” of their versus series fighters. Marvel vs Capcom 2 was what they gave us. Capcom changed almost everything from their previous versus series games. Gone were the days of 2 on 2 battles and a six attack button controller layout. Now the battles were 3 on 3, as well as the strong punch and forward kick buttons being removed. These major changes brought some serious doubts among series veterans. Was their really a need to change these staples of the series? A few short moments with the game was all anyone needed.
Continuing on with the retroSpects of Capcom’s versus series fighters, brings us to the third installment, Marvel vs Capcom. After a good but not great attempt with Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter, Capcom needed to come back with a bang. Marvel vs Capcom was their answer. With a stellar cast and two new assist abilities, this game was shaping up to bring greatness back to the series.
To follow up on their smash hit X-Men vs Street Fighter, Capcom released their next tag team brawler, Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter. What could Capcom do to improve on such an incredible game? Or would this just be another half-hearted sequel? Only time would tell and this game would surely stand the test of time.
Way back in 1998, Capcom released X-Men vs Street Fighter for the Sega Saturn. This was a monumental release for all fighting game fans. Up until then we were only given close renditions of arcade quality games on the home consoles. By releasing this game with a 4-Meg RAM cart add on, fighting game fans were finally given what we had all been waiting for…Arcade Perfection!
Kotaku has an updated list of the best and worst fighters in Street Fighter IV. The story states the list was compiled by Japanese gamers and shows how many times on average, two players of equal skill will win a “best of 10″ series using two characters. It’s a pretty detailed list and besides my favorite character Guile being ranked 21 out of 25, I happen to agree with it. Sagat, Seth, Balnka and Ryu are all very, very good. Check out the list inside.
Street Fighter 4′s release brings with it slew of new and awesome merchandise. The most important of all these things are of course, controllers. Nothing is worse then sitting down with a fantastic fighting game only to have a systems stock controller ruin the whole experience. Mad Catz has been given the task of bringing the arcade feeling home to you with their Street Fighter IV Fightstick’s for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Check out how it holds up.
Capcom has finally released Street Fighter IV after a slight delay in production. We sat down with SF4 for the Xbox 360 and PS3 and had to admit, it was sure worth the wait. With high definition, super fast moves, and a great new style, SF4 can easily allow itself to be called a classic upon release. But before we can crown the game a total success, we had to look at the game on each console.
