No GravatarI am a massive fan of fighting games and truly hope the Switch will be home to many. We know Ultra Street Fighter II is coming, as is Blazblue title and Dragonball, but there are so many fighting games that would be good for the system. There are many classics like Rival Schools or Power Stone that would be great, but there is one from Capcom that stands out as a perfect fit for the system.

 

Pocket Fighter, or Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix as it was also known, was a fighting game like no other. It was A Capcom crossover game featuring characters from Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter III, Darkstalkers Red Earth and more. It featured chibi versions of the characters as seen in Super Puzzle Fighter, which gave it a kiddie appearance, but it had an incredible amount of depth, and was great for people new to fighting games. The game used different types of characters, such as all around, skill, and power types, and it also used a unique gem system ( not like in Marvel vs Capcom Infinite). The game was whacky and zany and characters would have transformations such cosplaying as other characters in their moves . For example, Chun Li as Jill Valentine, and Felicia as Mega Man among others.

Even more than most fighting games, Pocket Fighter was fun and extremely energetic, earning it the approval of longtime Capcom fans and new fighting game players alike. It is my opinion that theSwitch would be the best place for the game to receive a new incarnation. The console has a strong emphasis on co-op which and with the unique button system used in the game, the Joy Cons would be amazing for two player action. If there is a new entry, we could see more Capcom characters join the fight, as well as more cosplay, such as newer characters from fighting games or non fighting games, as well as characters that haven’t appeared in years.

A big reason I feel this is a good fit for the Switch is due to it being a hybrid type game. It is both for experts who can play it competitively in a hardcore fashion, but at the same time, it is great for newcomers and offers much to both groups. This is the exact type of game Nintendo seems to want on the Switch, so it just feels right. The art style would look amazing in either docked or handheld mode and not suffer due to its stylized nature. Best of all, is that this would be a good way to bring people back to fighting games, especially on Nintendo systems. It would also be great to have for modern eSports, just for how insane it is.

I truly hope Capcom considers this. It would be a perfect move for all.

A number of boxes for upcoming Switch games, have found their way onto the net,including Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers.The box provides a couple of important details about the game. The interesting thing is that the box confirms several new details.

We can now officially say that Ultra Street Fighter II will have a new first-person mode, as was eased in the debut trailer. This will be a special game mode called “Unleash! Ha”DO”ken”, and is specialized for use with the Joy-Con controllers while in a first-person view.

“Hadoken” is ??? in Japanese. Capcom has removed the ? and replaced it with “Do” for this mode, making it ?Do?. This likely wont be carried over into the English version, which will probably have its own pun.

The thing that stands out the most about this is the screenshot on the box, which has a timer and shows multiple Bisons. Some have speculated that this is a mode in which you hold the Joy-Con and literally shoot hadoken, in a rail shooter like game.

Also noteworthy is that the box also shows that Ultra Street Fighter II will have some sort of art gallery, where players can view over 250 pages of artwork. As well, the box contains a logo for the MT Framework engine so it appears that Capcom’s mainstream engine is capable of producing Switch software.

There is no release date yet but Capcom says they want the game out soon.

After its disastrous launch, and sales far lower than what Capcom had been anticipating, Street Fighter V has had a hard time. There may be a silver lining here however, as the game has been approved for release in Mainland China.

This could be a big new market and considering how online competitive games are a major business there, this could actually help Capcom turn around Street Fighter V’s fortunes. If done right, this could end up ensuring a season 3 and even more fighting games from Capcom, should the audience bite. I hope the esports scene in China embraces the game and makes it a success. We need more fighting games and one horrible launch shouldn’t destroy all of the Street Fighter series.

There is  Arcade mode where you face against CPU’s to reach the end of the game, but just as if it is an arcade machine. players can cut in and challenge you.  The regular online mode will be between Casual and Ranked play. Ranked mode will have players winning or losing two types of points  namely Player and Battle, as they fight. Among its features will be Quick and Custom matches, as well as the ability to play with friends. Players can even create their own lobbies, setting personal rules and waiting for interested players to join. Casual mode will be playing without risking points. The game also features a local mode that will let you connect to other Switch consoles.

The game also has options for simplified Lite commands,  which allow players to assign more complicated button combinations to single presses. This is a returning feature from the 3DS version of Street Fighter IV, and there players could make sure they were not matched up against players who used the Lite controls.

Second, there have been multiple changes such as the ability to tech attacks and more. As well there are two new characters, Evil Ryu enters the SF II universe, but so does Violent Ken, who makes his Street Fighter debut. The game looks amazing and multiple modes of gameplay that have not yet been revealed were mentioned on the treehouse stream. See the trailer below

No GravatarInti Creates has shared a new video development update for Bloodstained Ritual of the Night. This time we are shown the village in the game.  Though the video is very short (only 30 seconds), we do get to see some interesting things. For one thing, the village itself is extremely reminiscent of the village seen in the opening of Dracula X and Rondo of Blood. IGA and Inti Creates have been throwing in numerous references to Bloodstained’s spiritual predecessor and it is amazing. As well, the brief look shows off just how stunning the game is and no doubt will be on launch.

Check it out below.
