Street Fighter IV and Asura's Wrath? [Update]

Street Fighter x Asura's Wrath Can this be? Are we going to get Asura as a DLC character for Super Street Fighter IV? Or is it the other way around?

Ok, I can't read Japanese so I have no idea what any of the stuff displayed said but with this video except for what appeared to be a release date for this "DLC" which said "2012/5/8".

I still don't fully understand what this video means. Is it really for Super Street Fighter IV? Or maybe it's a new game mode for Asura's Wrath? I mean the SF4 characters still look like SF4 characters while Asura still looks like Asura from his own game. Usually when Capcom puts characters in the SF4 realm, they give them a new make over to suit the SF4 art style.

This video has me both very confused and very excited at the same time. Though another thing still bothers me, why SF4 and not Street Fighter x Tekken? Given the nature of SFxT I think Asura's crazy moves would suit that game more.



Apparently I guessed right, it was the other way around. That video above was clipped out of the end of the full DLC trailer for Asura's Wrath. DLC content for Asura's Wrath is going to be released in Japan through the course of two months starting yesterday (3/27/2012) until May (5/15/2012), the Street Fighter bit being the last DLC.

What threw me off was the fact that Asura still looked exactly like he did in his own game and that after Akuma shoryuken'd Asura, he didn't get knocked into the air.

Here's the full DLC trailer for Asura's Wrath in Japan for both PS3 and Xbox 360.


Migoy gets his 2nd PS3 game - Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition

"Evil Ryu has vampire teeth?"

And wouldn't ya know it, it's another fighting game. I just got a brand new copy of Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition.

This was given to me as an early Christmas present from a friend, he goes by the name @estimater on twitter and tupasheep in the comments. I totally have no Street Fighter skills, never did or at least not at a pro-level, but I still enjoy a good beatdown, throwing fireballs and random shoryukens.

So far I've only done the arade modes of Ryu and Ken and tried out Evil Ryu in trainingmode. I got the ver. 2012 update and apparently you can switch back from ver. 2012 back to the normal "Arcade Edition". I don't really know how that works in online play, would the AE matches be separated with the ver. 2012 matches? I guess I'll just have to try it and find out for myself.

Again, thanks to @estimater for this awesome gift.


EVO 2011 Grand Finals [Update]

I just spent some time watching the grand final matches from this year's Evolution Championship Series. Gamespot uploaded the matches from the latest Mortal Kombat game, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, and Tekken 6. The Marvel vs. Capcom 3 grand finals is on youtube but the audio gets f**ked up half way through part 2 of the video which is probably why Gamespot didn't upload it.

Man, watching these matches and some of the semi and quarter finals, it's hard not to just stand up and scream along with the crowd. So much energy from the audience and so many great players gathering together for one of America's top fighting gaming tournaments.

I am in no way good at BlazBlue but I have played it and I do have a general idea on how the game works. I can tell you right now, if I played against these guys I would be destroyed in an instant.

Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition characters in action [Update: DLC price]

Remember that trailer showing off the 4 new characters from Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition that will be coming to consoles? Well here's a pair of videos that show off the new characters in a less cinematic way and give you a better idea on how they'll play.





The Arcade Edition content is coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on June 7 as downloadable content for an extremely reasonable $14.99. Capcom also says it will be launching the content as a full retail disc for 360 and PS3 on (or around) June 24. And good news to PC gamers out there: the development team just started work on a PC version of SSFIV: AE that will be released later this year.
