Final Street Fighter 5 Season 2 DLC Character Unveiled

Adnan Farooqui October 15, 2017

Capcom has unveiled the final Street Fighter 5 season 2 DLC character at the 2017 South East Asia Major tournament. Zeku the “ever-changing ninja” is back and will now be available as a playable character in Street Fighter 5. Those who have played Street Fighter Alpha 2 will remember this particular character, Zeku used to be Guy’s teacher who taught him Bushinryu, a style of ninjutsu.

Guy ended up succeeding Zeku as the 39th master of Bushinryu and Zeku wasn’t heard from since. He disappeared shortly after that happened. Zeku has returned in Street Fighter 5. He’s looking to start his own ninja group with new fighters. Zeku also wants to find a new fighting style.

Capcom has posted the character reveal trailer for Zeku on YouTube. Zeku seems to have a close-quarters fighting style as well as the ability to switch between his old and his new self. Both forms will have three different costumes.

Characters that have previously been released in Season 2 include Akuma, Kolin, Ed, Abigail, and Menat. Street Fighter 5 players can purchase Zeku separately for $6. It’s included in the season pass for those who have already picked one up for $30. Zeku will be available for purchase on October 24th.

Capcom is yet to confirm when it’s going to release the third season of DLC for Street Fighter 5.

Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition Spotted On Retailer’s Website

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

If there is one thing about the Street Fighter series that we’ve noticed is that Capcom seems to love creating many versions of a particular release, which can be admittedly confusing for fans or those new to the series. However it seems that this won’t be changing anytime soon because Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition has been spotted.

In a listing on ShopTo’s website (via Eurogamer), the retailer has suggested that Capcom might have an “Arcade Edition” of Street Fighter 5 in the works that is set for a release on the 16th of January, 2018. One could argue that ShopTo is simply speculating, but the date does seem to be awfully specific. The listing has since been removed which suggests that either it was made in error, or ShopTo shared something that they shouldn’t have prematurely.

At the moment it is unclear as to what the Arcade Edition entails, but it has been speculated that it will be a game-of-the-year kind of release where the game along with all of its DLCs will be released in a single bundle, as well as potential new features like an arcade mode, making it easier for gamers who don’t own the game to get right into the thick of things.

It is expected that Capcom could announce the title at the Tokyo Game Show, so do check back with us later to see if there are any additional details to be had.

Capcom Re-Releases Street Fighter II Cartridge For The SNES

Tyler Lee August 31, 2017

Consoles these days rely on digital downloads or discs, versus back in the day where cartridges were the more (and only) way of playing games. In fact for a while this translated to handheld consoles too, like the Game Boy and Game Gear, so it is rather surprising to see that Capcom is releasing a cartridge game in this day and age.

The company has recently teamed up with the folks at iam8bit and have re-released Street Fighter II for the SNES in cartridge form. According to the description, “Featuring one of two colored cartridges, each housing the original game code and fully playable on NTSC consoles – but that’s just the beginning!”

“The “Legacy Cartridge Collection” embodies retro-inspired luxury, amplifying the core SNES box design with a glistening foil sheen, delicately embossed texture, chic spot varnish and an innovative tri-fold cover that opens to reveal bonus vintage art. Inside, we’re keeping it old-school by restoring the contents of the original instruction booklet, complete with a new archival cover print + secret pack-ins (to be revealed when you crack that shrink-wrap seal).”

Now whether or not you still have an SNES to enjoy the cartridge with is a different story, but if you enjoy collecting special editions of video games, then we guess this is a good place to start. However do note that this Street Fighter II release is limited and there will only be 5,500 units worldwide and will be priced at $100 each. You can pre-order the game via iam8bit’s website where it is expected to be released this November.

‘Ultra Street Fighter II’ On The Switch Was A ‘Smash Hit’

Tyler Lee July 28, 2017

While console gamers are enjoying the latest Street Fighter titles with the amazing new graphics, all Nintendo Switch gamers got was “Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challenge”. While there were some graphical improvements made to the game, we’re sure that gamers would have liked to see something like Street Fighter V.

However as it turns out nostalgia could have been a compelling reason for gamers to play the game because according to Capcom, they are claiming that the game was actually a “smash hit”. The company’s earnings report reads, “Ultra Street Fighter II (for Nintendo Switch), which was released in May 2017, made an excellent start and proved to be a smash hit.”

Unfortunately Capcom did not dive into specifics like how many copies of the game was sold, so we have no idea what the company considers a “smash hit”, but either way we guess this is good news for Capcom and also pretty good news for Nintendo since having compelling games will also help to move console sales, like how The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild had a pretty impressive attachment rate.

It is unclear if we will be getting more Street Fighter titles for the Switch in the future, but hopefully the good sales means that we can look forward to more Capcom content on the Switch in the future.

Street Fighter IV Champion Edition For iOS Released

Tyler Lee July 13, 2017

If you’re looking to play a bit of Street Fighter on your phone, you might be interested to learn that Capcom has announced that Street Fighter IV Champion Edition is now available on iOS devices. The game is not free and will cost gamers $4.99, although the upside is that it looks like there are no in-app purchases, so what you see is what you get.

According to Capcom, “Take control of 25 world warriors and test your mettle against players from around the world. Street Fighter 4: Champion Edition perfects the winning gameplay formula by offering higher resolution graphics, three new characters (Poison, Ibuki and Dudley) wide screen support for newer iOS devices and a host of updates and refinements.”

Also we should point out the fact that it will be support for MFI controllers, meaning that if you’d rather play using physical controllers instead of virtual ones, you have that option. However take note that the controllers only work during gameplay itself, meaning that you won’t be able to use the controls during the menu selection process.

If this sounds like a game you wouldn’t mind getting your hands on, then head on over to the iTunes App Store for the details.

Super Street Fighter V Rumored To Be In The Works

Tyler Lee June 9, 2017

We know that sometimes the Street Fighter franchise can be a bit confusing with the different titles, and the rumors of an upcoming Super Street Fighter V do not seem to be helping. In a post on Reddit by Rikurikumore, it seems that Capcom could be working on a new title based on the Street Fighter V game.

However the good news is that Capcom will not be releasing it as a standalone game. Instead the company is rumored to be releasing it as an update to Street Fighter V which will be free for  those who already own the base game, meaning that there won’t be two sets of players who own either Street Fighter V or Super Street Fighter V.

This seems to be in line with the company’s statement from before in which they stated that they have no plans to fragment the current player base, which is a good idea if they’re hoping to consolidate the competitive gaming scene. As for what’s going to be included in the game, apparently we can expect a UI overhaul, Arcade Mode, an Extra Battle mode, a PvE mode, new critical arts, and improved mechanics.

No word on when the game will be released (if the rumors are true), but if it is to be announced at the conclusion of the Capcom Cup later this year, we’re guessing we’ll probably be seeing it in 2018 at the earliest, but do take it with a grain of salt for now.

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers Trailer Released

Tyler Lee May 19, 2017

If you love fighting games, there will be some options that will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, such as Arms and Super Smash Bros. However if those games are a little too cute for your tastes and you wanted something more “serious”, then Capcom’s Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers might be worth looking forward to.

For those unfamiliar, the game is an upcoming release for the Nintendo Switch where it is essentially an updated version of Super Street Fighter II Turbo that was originally released back in 1994. Now thanks to a recently released trailer, gamers can look forward to checking out some gameplay footage where the video shows off the game’s graphics modes, where users can switch between old school pixelated graphics or the new HD ones.

In addition to the updated graphics, the game will also introduce a new mode called “Way of the Hado” which is a first-person mode that feels rather novel, although admittedly it also looks quite fun, especially if shooting Hadoukens is always something that you’ve dreamt of doing since you were a kid.

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers is set for a release on the 26th of May, 2017. In the meantime you can check out some of the gameplay footage in the video above.

Still Not The Right Time To Launch Tekken X Street Fighter

Tyler Lee April 28, 2017

We have been hearing about Bandai Namco’s Tekken X Street Fighter game for years, and by now many have probably assumed that it has been cancelled. Back in 2015, the developers assured that this was not the case, although in 2016 it was revealed that the game is no longer in active development.

This means that while it hasn’t been cancelled outright, it isn’t actively being worked on either. For those wondering about the status of the game, the game’s director Katsuhiro Harada revealed the reasons why they still have not gone ahead and launched it, and it basically is all about the timing.

In an interview with IGN, Harada was quoted as saying, “This has been said before, but Tekken x Street Fighter, the current timing is just that Capcom is putting a lot of effort into building up Street Fighter V, for us, we’re looking straight towards the release of Tekken 7, and we just decided that it wasn’t a very good idea to split both of those groups by adding a third title that covers both and to the same timing, so it’s more about the timing and waiting for the right chance for that.”

Based on this it sounds like it could be years before it even happens, but what do you guys think? Should they just cancel it already? Or is this still a title that you’re looking forward to?
