Finally could it be?

Recommended Posts

TOKYO--A long-awaited fourth installment in Capcom's Street Fighter franchise might finally be on the horizon. An unofficial list of games expected to appear at the Amusement Machine Show in Japan September 1-3 has been making the rounds on Internet message boards lately, and it has Street Fighter 4 down as a game to be shown at Capcom's booth.

 

Capcom has added some fuel to that fire today with the announcement that it will indeed be showing off a new arcade fighting game at the show. The company made no mention as to whether the game would be an installment of an existing franchise or a new product altogether. Regardless, the new fighting game will only be presented in video format, meaning it's most likely to be quite early in development.

 

Other games Capcom has scheduled to appear include Super Mario: Fushigi no Korokoro Party 2, Geki Makai Mura, Pingu's Ice Block, and Donkey Kong Jungle Fever (a really disturbing Spike Lee joint about interspecies relationships, perhaps?).

 

Capcom is widely known for its Street Fighter series but has all but abandoned its fighting franchises of late. Franchises like Darkstalkers, Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter EX, Star Gladiator, and the Vs. series have gone years without new installments, and last year's crossover compilation Capcom Fighting Evolution on the PlayStation 2 (released earlier this year on the Xbox) was met with critical apathy.

 

The annual Amusement Machine Show is a distributor-oriented event and is closed to the general public on days one and two. Day three is open to the public, and entrance is free.

 

GameSpot will bring additional information on Capcom's new mystery fighter as it becomes available.

Telling from the Panel at the comic con though, it seems they are making an SF4, in which stage is currently unknown (They set the release to be on SF2's 20th anniversary). If this really is SF4, Ryu is the only SF2 classic character to return. But they also did hinted that they were working on another game, which in this case, could heavily be CFJ2.

The release is set for SF2's 20th anniversary? I'm not much of a fighting game fan, but I enjoy Street Fighter games.......waiting until 2011? (SF2 was released in 91.....)

Iggy cleared things up. The game debuting is an Action VS title and not a Fighter VS title. In other news, SF4@TGS rumors have begun!
