"404," quipped the server.

Your link got cut off. But I found it. It's looking very impressive.

What would be a cool thing, I think, would be if you could save a replay of a fight, then have have the game do a non real time render of the fight in the same style as the trailer.

I'm ecstatic for this game. Words simply can't convey what I feel right now. I'm just crossing my fingers that we'll get some characters from Alpha and 3rd Strike. C'mon Capcom, give us more Rolento. I think his time has come again.

Oh, and here are some images courtesy of Famitsu.

I'm just hoping for a grown-up Sakura.. she'll be in her twenties now, so I'm curious to see how they design her!
I'm also kind of curious about how complicated the Revenge Meter dealy is going to be... with it, it means you'll have to keep track of your health, stun, super and revenge bar in matches... that's kind of a lot of stuff to watch.
Still, Sai is a complete Street Fighter nut, so he can't wait! XD

I'm just hoping they're not setting this in an alternate timeline to SF3 as has been hinted at... hate it when they do that. It would allow them to put in the SF3 characters that hadn't met the previous characters until that game without inconsistancies in the story... but still.

I can not wait for this game. I just hate how people call it ugly when I think it looks great, especially for a game that hasn't even been finished.

Great videos. For a game that's just barely in development, I'm impressed at what Capcom has already managed to put together. And to think, they still need to do so much more. I have to admit though, I find Abel's design unimpressive. He kind of looks like Roy Batty with steroids and a stupid outfit. I'll forgive that if his fighting style is good, but I'm hoping any future newcomers will be closer to the good standard set by Viper, who I like already.

Other than that, it's nice to see the game avoiding the problems that made the last Street Fighter 3-D outing such a disaster.

-Edit- And now we have a rough release date for Japan. Thank goodness Capcom is releasing an arcade edition first.

Anyone else noticed that C. Viper is basically Girl Captain Commando?

I did because Captain Commando is my second favorite character from MvC (Jin is my fav).

sh!t character.

Being honest, all these new characters seem really dull compared to the kind of character designs Capcom would come up with for the Alpha/Zero and 3/Third-Strike series. Not too happy with Rufus at all. They could have come up with something so much better than that. Ah well, at least it's got all the old cast in there. I'm happy with that. The game still looks sexy, though.

I mostly agree. The only new guy I like, and I like him a lot, is El Fuerte. Two big reasons why. I love me some lucha libre and it's about time Street Fighter got a proper luchador. That, and El Fuerte's gameplay looks awesome.

I'm really miffed that these guys seem to be totally ignoring the Alpha and SF3 characters for whatever stupid reason.

Guy 1 - Hey, why not add a kung-fu guy to the roster?
Guy 2 - Great idea. How about Gen?
Guy 1 - No, he's supposed to be dead by now.
Guy 2 - Fair enough, how about Fei-Long?
Guy 1 - Naw, the Bruce Lee homage has been done to death.
Guy 2 - What about Yun? He seems pretty popular with fans.
Guy 1 - Wait! I got it! Let's make a brand new character.

And prestodigimagic, we get some biker looking, kung-fu, fat ass, Majin-Buu wannabe. What the hell? Don't get me wrong, I'm still excited about this game. I just wish it didn't look like it was relying so much on its SF2 pedigree, because until we see more of this new focus attack system, SF4 is just looking like a 3D Super Turbo.

Oh well. King of Fighters XII is looking gorgeous at least.

They seem way too reluctant to add anyone from SF III. And as for Gen being dead, that hasn't stopped them yet. M. Bison is alive and kicking, in spite of having his soul eradicated be demons, thanks to Akuma. I think it's funny how the character designs from the animated Street Fighter 2 movie have completely replaced the original designs.

Yeah. I'm glad Bison (dictator) is back since he's usually one of my primary characters, but that doesn't mean I didn't raise an eyebrow when I saw him on the roster. Having your soul personally delivered to Hell sounded like a pretty solid demise to me. Obviously getting blown up in Alpha 3 didn't stop him. Wait just a minute. An evil person with an awesome jawline and wicked smile who just doesn't seem to want to die? Could it be?

I'm guessing that Bison won't relate to the games story, where he'll be selectable, but won't appear in the single player ladder.

And Bison's story reminds me more of this guy:

I think what would have been a good idea would have been to have Bison as a secret character only. Like, no story, just selectable for people who used to play as him. I think his story should remain as Akuma killing him. There really is no coming back from that otherwise it will make Akuma look more....i dunno....weak? Either way, unless they make a game that is set after Street Fighter 3, we all know M. Bison ends up fully dead in the long run.

I know this sounds stupid and we know it won't happen, but i really wanna see all the other street fighter cast in this. To see the old Alpha crew with these graphics worked on them...man...that would own. None of this "Rufus" pish.

Yeah, see. Imagine her in this day and age with those kinda graphics. She'll be bouncing it all over the shop, lol. XD

Maybe if this style of Street Fighter is successful they may bring back some of the old cast....even though, as we have gathered, characters like Gen are indeed dead.

As far a returning characters go, these are the ones I want to see most.

Sakura
Rolento
Elena
Alex
Dudley
Skull-O-Mania

Dudley vs Balrog would be epic. And don't forget DiGi, if I make it Auchinawa, you...me...Yang...Urien. It'll be fun!

I with you on that Zero. I've been waiting forever to see Sakura in 4. Not that I play with her it's just that she completes the game for me.

Capcom 'officially' confirms PS3, 360, and PC ports later in the year, plus apparently there's screens of Vega, Bison, Sagat and Balrog now..

Apparently, Fei Long and Dan are scheduled for the console versions too.....which leads me to believe that Cammy has to be up in this one as she was the only one out of the SuperSF2 cast that got a huge fan following in comparison to the others. Fei-Longs fanbase was smaller compared to Cammy's so if Fei's in it then Cammy's most probably gonna be there. Maybe even DeeJay and T Hawk too.

Also, a new boss was revealed. Seth, i think his name is. He looks similar to Street Fighter 3's Gil and Urien in the fact that he has the whole 'almost nude' look going on, lol. I wonder if Capcom are going to attempt to tie in the stories of SF2 and SF3 with this game then?

Link here shows scans from a magazine --> clicky-clicky
The wiki article on Street Fighter 4 explains a bit about it but not that much. I've pretty much covered everything but feel free to go look anyways. :blink:

Seth intrigues me. I too almost immediately noticed how similar he looks to Urien and Gill, especially if you look at the picture for one of his moves. Looks an awful lot like Chariot Tackle doesn't it? This could either be a good or bad thing. On one hand, I might still be able to get my Aegis Reflector on in SF4. On the other hand, this may be the closest we get to a 3rd Strike character. If Seth is an ersatz Illuminati brother, I'll let it slide because Urien was my primary in 3rd Strike, but I don't want to see Capcom making replacements for such charismatic characters like Elena and Alex.

I still hate Rufus so far. He's a Bob rip-off and Tekken 6 isn't even out yet.

Fei-Long will at least give us a proper kung fu guy. Finally, Dan Hibiki! **** yes, Dan ****ing Hibiki!

That second trailer was pure class...even if the voice over was a bit cheesy but i think that made it even more classy, lol. And i love the remixed music of the old stuff. They did real good with that.

I love the way this game is shaping up. It seems Capcom really want this to be everything the Street Fighter fans have wanted. It looks beautiful in every single way...other than that Rufus character. God, he still looks awful.

As for Sakura being in it. I think because of that huge fan following of hers then she could very well be. I get the feeling they're going to give the home console versions a lot of extra content.

I need a 360. Like, now.

I know I've done my fair share of bitching, but it's only because I care about this series I love so much. These trailers really are awesome. I can't wait. Also, did anybody notice that the announcer in the second trailer sounded a lot like the announcer in Capcom vs. SNK 2? That thought made me smile.

Just a news update on SF4.
It seems that Dan and FeiLong are not actually confirmed for the home versions yet. The art that was featured showing Dan and Fei is the main artist trying out the other characters in the latest style to see how it feels in conjunction to the rest of the game. Apparently there's a whole lot of other characters he's drawn that are not being shown. Nobody is set for the home version yet as they're still deciding the roster but it's evident that they're interested in the SuperSF2 cast.

Also. The home versions are hoping to contain animated endings for each character and the animation is supposed to be made by some big-shot studio that they're keeping secret for now.

Awesome, sounds good to me *at latest news* I guess they might as well not invest so much in the arcade version, you can't hear an ending in an arcade (if you can find one) anyway..
