Update status: Complicated.

Tag Archives: ryu

That’s right. Capcom has gotten a whole new look on itself. They were a little unsure of Street Fighter IV at first. It was like a glob of wet clay with plenty of cracks. Then the fan nature called, and Super Street Fighter IV answered, filling in all the drab cracks that made it a masterpiece. I guess the Dimps-Capcom team thought that it just wasn’t enough. So now they’ve put their innovation to the test…and the Arcade Edition was born.

Some old-school Hongkongese fighters from SF3, Yun (left) and Yang, rebooted for the Arcade Edition.

The SSF4 series is still at its best in rebooting, like doing so for the pictured Yun and Yang. Think of this that sets them apart besides their couture: Yun’s a skater, but Yang’s more of a rollerblader. Back in April 2010, producer Yoshinori Ono announced that there would be an arcade version. Currently, Evil Ryu (Street Fighter Alpha 2) and the brand-new Oni have been announced as playable bad guys. A couple of play tests were handled in numerous arcades as well as during the SF4 finals at Tougeki Super Battle Opera. Shortly after the release, pictures showing debug 360 achievements with various AE characters were leaked, implying a console release in the future. Evil Ryu was officially announced as playable on March 25, 2011, and Oni was released two weeks later on April 8. It’s planned for a June 7 release for the 360, and the PS3 as online DLC and media 4 weeks later, on June 28. The Replay Channel from SSF4 is getting bumped up a notch. Now players can distribute their replays, follow others’ recent games, and view a special channel featuring proficient players. It has also been announced that a PC version is due for release in July, including a benchmark computer test, and making use of Games for Windows Live.

Check out a taste of what to expect from Arcade Edition if you don’t know of it already:

“Yun and Yang Trailer”


So if you want to unleash your inner warrior (and you own a PS3 or Xbox 360), invest in the Arcade Edition for just $39.99 when it hits stores July 28! And to me, that’s cheaper than most titles GameStop sell.

Goodbye for now, and if you still check out our channel‏, we plan to update as soon as possible when we get AE! 😉

Hey guys it’s Sam and do you remember my Super Mario Crossover post?(Super Mario Bros. Crossover!?)

Well, you know how I mentioned that ninja Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden? Well, guess what? When the game told me I was playing an outdated version, it told me that I could go to the updated version (as in 1.1)! I obviously said yes and said ‘okay’, and guess where it led me to? Exploding Rabbit.com, where the 1.1 version was! Since Ryu debuted in that version, I was so stoked to play him. And I got to say, he’s GOOD. Why?:

HE CAN WALL CLIMB! – Yeah, I said the ninja can WALL CLIMB. All you have to do is jump onto a wall, and he instantly clings on. I gotta say, that’s pretty handy for those situations where you’re climbing up a 12-story building, you know what I’m saying?

SHURIKEN POWER! – You can throw shurikens after you receive a mushroom of firepower. They’re like boomerangs; they come back to you after you throw them. And I got 2 say, EPIC.

There’s no real difference, except when you select Mario, he jumps and hits a ? block rather than jumping in the air oh so randomly.

Here’s the link to the 1.0 game at Newgrounds: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/534416
