Following the previous patch that added a intimidatingly long list of new gems and a replay analyzer, the next patch for Street Fighter X Tekken will be released at an undecided date sometime in May. The full list of patch notes were posted on Capcom-Unity, with the real meat of it being fixes to infinite combos for Kazuya, Kuro, Xiaoyu and Pac-Man. That means all of you abusing that restand infinite glitch combo will no longer be able to. (You know who you are.) Also expect adjusted damage properties and frame data for several fighters, like Ogre, Juri, Rufus, Zangief and M. Bison.
Capcom is unsure on the exact date the patch will be released, but said to expect one soon.
Capcom put together a new trailer showing off some of the changes made in Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition: Version 2012. Click here to read about the full list of changes. All 39 characters have been rebalanced with a great deal of input from fans all over. That really just means different characters will become top tier and you’ll have to deal with it. The Version 2012 update is totally free *gasp*. I need to dust off the fightstick and get back into Street Fighter mode. This is a great time to be a fan of fighting games.
Capcom-Unity has revealed the complete change log for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition Ver. 2012. *exhale*
Street Fighter fans know what I’m talking about. But for the rest, why should you care? If you are a casual SSFIV: AE player, Version 2012 is a rather large, free, yes free, update for the home versions of the game that has been in arcades for some time now. The change is so damn big, Capcom-Unity had to reveal it in a PDF. You can view the PDF here. There is a whole lot of character tuning listed.
For us hardcore Street Fighter fans, this is a pretty big deal. Most of the changes seem to be made to balance out the more recent characters. Ahem, Yun…
Enter Mr. Brett Elston, Capcom Community Manager. Perhaps one of the toughest game journalists to get a hold of in the industry, but Addicted-Gamers pulled it off, just for you. Well, not really, considering Brett is one of the nicest guys there is, he didn’t have a problem sitting down with us. Who is he really, you ask?
Elston first garnered real success in the industry over at GamesRadar. His wealth of video game knowledge and expertise earned him the role of Executive Editor. He also co-hosted the popular TalkRadar podcast until his final show and roast, episode 176. Hell, he even has a Tdar wiki page dedicated to him. As it goes, Brett was offered an opportunity to work for Capcom during his stay over at GR, and jumped at the chance. He currently resides with Capcom-Unity as Community Manager, where you can find some of his writing on the daily blog.
Let’s get on with the questions…
