122w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an EVO interview today with Capcom's Seth Killian on PSN Street Fighter III and Street Fighter X Tekken.
To quote: This August sees the long-awaited PSN release of Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition, followed by Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 in November and Street Fighter X Tekken in 2012.
I caught up with Capcom's Strategic Director of Online & Community Seth Killian at EVO, the world's biggest fighting game tournament, to get the latest updates on all three games.
Killian did me one better, discussing Capcom's evolving view of community engagement and sharing his analysis of Noah "The Prodigy," the eight-year old Marvel vs Capcom 3 competitor who captured the imagination of EVO attendees when he outmatched much older players to place among the competition's top 64 finalists.
PlayStation.Blog: Street Fighter III was famously a huge departure from Street Fighter II, earning it a fair bit of controversy. How does it hold up today?
Seth Killian, Strategic Director of Online & Community: For me, the essence of any great fighting game is learning how to read the mind of your opponent. If you can do that, Street Fighter III gives you the ultimate way to show that off...
Our E3 build had playable characters including Ryu, Ken, Guile, Abel, Sagat, Cammy, and Chun-Li from Street Fighter as well as Kazuya, Nina, King, Marduk, Hwoarang, Julia and Bob from Tekken (with plenty more to be revealed soon!).
Capcom's own Wes Phillips swung by to do a live demo at PlayStation's E3 livestream. Wes also discusses special guest Cole from inFAMOUS, our exclusive bonuses for the PS3 and PS Vita versions of Street Fighter X Tekken!
During E3, top fighting pros and newcomers alike stormed our E3 booth for hours of furious fights, leading to tons of feedback. It's a blast to jump right into Street Fighter X Tekken and start exploring, but the mechanics we've shown are far from complete....
133w ago - Today James Gallagher has shared a video and word that Capcom's Asuras Wrath currently points to a 2012 release on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: After seeing this trailer at Captivate, the hotel was rattling with chat of 'God Finger', 'Heavenly Point' and 'Space Cuticle'.
The game was actually Asura's Wrath and, with so many of the games on show such as Dragon's Dogma suggesting a shift towards more Western influences with new Capcom games, it had a distinctly Japanese feel along similar lines to the likes of God Hand.
However, while there's nothing new about an action game featuring gigantic Gods, there's one series that PlayStation fans are particularly familiar with, so I asked director Seiji Shimoda how far the similarities run...
First of all I'm honored for Asura's Wrath to be mentioned in the same breath as God of War - I have played it and it's an incredible game. Superficially, there are some resemblances but we're hoping that, as you see more of Asura's Wrath, you're going feel that it's something completely different; that it doesn't really compare with anything else in action gaming.
138w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has unveiled Capcom's announcement today alongside a video trailer of Dragon's Dogma for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Dragon's Dogma is a new intellectual property from the creators of Devil May Cry 4 and Resident Evil 4. And while it resembles another Capcom series featuring monsters and the hunting thereof, we're promised a unique experience when the game launches in "early 2012."
I played a short demo and met with the game's director, Hideaki Itsuno, and it's producer, Hiroyuki Kabayashi, at Capcom's Captivate event in Miami last week.
"While they may have some superficial similarities, they are very different games at heart," explains Hideaki when asked about comparisons to Monster Hunter. "One key difference is that Dragon's Dogma has an overarching story whereas in Monster Hunter the focus is on the hunt."
In a nutshell, Dragon's Dogma is an open-world action adventure set in a world of swords, sorcery and enormous, deadly monsters. "When I was at junior high school I was really taken in by The Lord of the Rings, so I'm sure that has had a strong influence," explains Hideaki. "You can expect...
