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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Heads up gamers, if you’re looking forward to being able to play Street Fighter V in a new location or with new costumes, you’ll be pleased to learn that Capcom has announced that come April 25, they will be adding the remastered Thailand stage as well as introducing three premium school costumes for Ryu, Chun-Li, and Jun.
Crossover games aren’t new, and to a certain extent they’re actually pretty fun especially if you’re a fan of both franchises. A good example would be Marvel VS Capcom: Infinite that was recently announced for 2017 in which we’ll see Marvel character take on Capcom characters. So the question is, where does Mortal Kombat fit into this crossover scene?
One of the reasons how the Nintendo Wii set itself apart from the other consoles was the introduction of motion controls. Nintendo carried this concept forward with the Wii U, and they are still holding onto that feature with the Nintendo Switch, and it looks like the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter II will be taking advantage of that.
As far as arcade fighting games are concerned, the Street Fighter franchise is probably one of the oldest franchises around. In fact in case you didn’t know, the franchise is close to celebrating its 30th anniversary, and in celebration of that it seems that Capcom might have a surprise announcement to share.
Rage quitting is an issue that game developers have been dealing with for a long time now. Capcom themselves have come up with all sorts of ways to deter rage quitters, and in the latest Winter update to Street Fighter V, Capcom has implemented a couple of new ways to deal with players who rage quit.
Rage quitting a game when you’re losing or if your teammates are mucking around is understanding. It’s not the right thing to do, but we can understand the need to just throw your hands up in the air in frustration. Unfortunately this is a problem plaguing many games in which many players, including those on the winning side, do not get the full experience.
Software updates are generally welcome because they introduce bug fixes, performance improvements, new features, and so on. However sometimes they can cause some undesired side effects, such as bricking devices, or in the case of the latest PC patch for Street Fighter V, it has made the game unplayable for some.
