On Sunday 29th April, 8bit Ego put together a new style of fighting game event, never seen before in the UK. Promising a fusion of video gaming and urban culture, these guys certainly delivered, and put on a show that received compliments from not only the pro fighting gaming veterans, but also new players and their friends too.
Artists Josh Summana and JC Adams sketched up their own creative renditions of popular Street Fighter characters Akuma/Gouki, and Balrog. We also had renowned beatboxer Faith SFX who wowed the crowd with his own rendition of Tetris and many other fan favourites whilst the players duked it out live on stage in a battle of Street Fighter X Tekken!
At the end of the night, the best players came out on top, with Taaha taking the cash prize of £500, and 2nd/3rd place winning a Street Fighter X Tekken Pro Arcade Stick courtesy of Mad Catz UK! No one felt left out, as everyone walked away with a goodie bag that even included an exclusive print of M.Bison and Heihachi drawn again by Josh.
We hope you all had a brilliant time, and if you weren’t able to make it, we hope to see you at the next event!
Here’s a bonus piece of art from Josh Summana who recently did a fantastic M Bison painting for their latest ‘Bosses’ collection!
Back in January earlier this year, we teased that we had some pretty huge plans in store for this years Street Fighter 25th Anniversary. Today we are happy to reveal a couple of core pieces of the celebration: a huge collector’s set (only available in North America) as well as a giant world wide Street Fighter tournament that we’re backing with half a million dollars worth of prizing and amenities!
Our Capcom-sponsored series of tournaments begins in July and runs right through until December. Games included are Street Fighter X Tekken, Super Street Fighter IV AE v2012, SF III: Third Strike Online Edition and Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. (Dates and locations subject to change):
- July 28-29 in Austin, TX
- August 11-12 in the NY area (location pending)
- August 26 in Taipei, Taiwan (location pending)
- Mid-September in the Tokyo Region, Japan (date and location pending)
- September 27-30 in London, England (in conjunction with Eurogamer Expo)
- October 13-14 in Sao Paulo, Brazil (in conjunction with Brazil Game Show)
- October 27-28 in Los Angeles, CA
- October 31 – November 4 in Paris, France (in conjunction with Paris Games Week)
- December 8 Finals in San Francisco, CA (including players who qualify in the prelim tourneys)
As if that wasn’t enough, the first place SFxT player gets a custom Scion FR-S Sports Coupe! It includes a custom video entertainment system from SCEA, modified exterior from Five Axis and other components from other aftermarket companies.
European Street Fighter fans will have TWO chances to take part in the celebrations, with one event in London taking place during the Eurogamer Expo in September, as well as another event in Paris during Paris Games Week in November! More information on both events will follow shortly whilst we finalise the details.
Lastly, there will soon be a new site where you can share your own SF fandom. Head to http://www.streetfighter.com/sf25 for more info – it’s not fully operational just yet, but it will be soon. More on that to come!
The guys over at VG Forum are hosting a Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition PS3 Online Tournament with registration open from now until May 10th!
Simply register at the forum and sign up at the following thread.
All prizes and information can be found via the same link. May the best Street Fighter win!
There’s a very high chance that if you’re a fan of Capcom in any shape or form, you’ll agree that one of the most iconic games to come from us, is of course the legendary Street Fighter! Who would believe that we’d still be shouting ‘Hadouken!’ and ‘Shoryuken!’ to this very day, after 25 years of throwing Sonic Booms, and performing Spinning Bird Kicks! That’s right, Street Fighter celebrates it’s 25th Birthday this year, and we are planning some really cool things to celebrate, as well as rewarding those loyal fighting game fans who stuck by us over this incredible journey.
Whether you played Street Fighter II on the Super Nintendo, Street Fighter III: Third Strike at the arcade, or Street Fighter IV on your Xbox 360/PS3, almost everyone has a memory relating to this iconic franchise, and we’re on the look out for the most creative artists and musicians, to come forth with their creations to share with the world what it is that Street Fighter means to them.
There are two different ways to contribute to the celebration. The first is good old fan art, something Street Fighter can summon in abundance. Head to this site and submit your best, most celebratory art for a chance to have it immortalised in future Capcom anniversary announcements. The general theme is one of reflection and nostalgia – tailor your art to the idea of “anniversary” and it stands a better chance of being used down the road (more on that later).
The other path is for those of a musical inclination. Head to this site and upload your best Street Fighter song – be it a remix or a new creation inspired by the franchise – and you could see (hear?) it used in an official capacity later on.
Apologies for the nebulous statements tucked in there, but we’re still ironing out the details and want to make sure all our ducks are in a row before announcing the full plan. This includes not just the tributes above, but also the tournament series we’ve already teased.
Can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
Hot on the heels of its March 9 release date, SFxT is about to kick off regular updates – meant to keep the experience fresh all through the year – with a ton of free and paid DLC. There’s a whole bunch o’ content coming, so let’s break it all down…
Up first on April 3 are Swap Costumes that take the “alternate costume” DLC idea one step further – instead of merely changing a character’s appearance, these outfits cross the fashion line by dressing SF characters as Tekken characters and vice versa. See Raven dress as Guy, Cammy as King and uh, Kuma as R. Mika…(?)
Swap Costumes are available for €0.99/£0.79/80 Microsoft Points each, or if you wanna dive in for the whole assortment you can pick up the Street Fighter or Tekken collection packs for €12.99/£9.99/1040 Microsoft Points each – buying one pack brings a great saving and grabbing both even more. April 3 also brings three free colour packs, each containing four new additions to the palette for added customization options. Topping off the April 3 additions are three free new quick combos, making for a total of five pre-programmed attack patterns. While spamming these pre-set combos is tempting, don’t forget each use saps some of your Cross Gauge!
Shortly after those items arrive, look for a free tournament support title update that will add a new and faster way to select your gems from the versus screen via a dial system. For all of you up late this coming Monday, our friends over at Capcom Unity will running a live stream this coming Monday at 23.00 GMT – head over to their Twitch TV page for details. This update will also include improvements to the online sound issues discussed in Ayano-san’s earlier blog.
Looking just a few more weeks beyond the tournament support title addition, the next big wave is a massive selection of free content delivered as a title update. This includes three new Assist Gem packs and six new Boost Gem packs, which adds over 60 gems to the selection pool. This sizable infusion of new gems exponentially increases the customisation options for every player, so we should see some interesting new loadouts once the DLC arrives. To that point, we’re also tossing in three more gem slots per character in which you can save your preferred loadouts. Finally, this update comes complete with a free replay analyser as well that lets you see you and your opponent’s vital statistics during a match.
The biggest additions come soon after the PlayStation Vita version launches later this year – the 12 characters debuting on Vita will come to consoles as a €19.99/£15.99/1600 Microsoft Points bundle. I know many were worried past character pricing would push the cost of this update sky high, so I’m happy to say Blanka, Sakura, Guy, Cody, Elena, Dudley, Alisa, Bryan, Christie, Jack, Lars and Lei will not break the bank.
One additional note – the dev team is also already working on solutions to the infinite combos currently making the rounds on YouTube, and will have them patched up once these other updates are out the door:
Nine new gem packs totaling 60+ new gems
Tournament support for gem selection
Three new quick combo pre-sets
Three additional gem loadout slots
Three new color packs with four colors each
Swap Costumes – €0.99/£0.79 (80 MSP) each or in two €12.99/£9.99 (1040 MSP) Street Fighter and/or Tekken packs
DLC characters – €19.99/£15.99 (1600 MSP) for all 12 new fighters
