Ono: Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition “could be” coming to consoles after all

Friday, 25th February 2011 05:53 GMT By Nathan Grayson

You know, Yoshinori Ono, liars go to hell.

But – given the circumstances – we forgive you. Just this once.

Via Twitter, Ono strongly (it was downright fierce, in fact) hinted that Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition will be making the leap onto consoles after all. Replying to a fan’s seemingly blind optimism about the situation, he said:

“Yeah, [it] could be [coming to consoles]. Wait it news after 3DS in US!!”

He then added that an “official” announcement is coming “soon.”

For the uninitiated, the Arcade Edition’s claims to fame are less balance and more special characters – including versions of Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu, and Oni. Unless Ono’s gotten bored with videogames and decided that playing games with his fans’ hearts is more fun, it looks like you’ll have a chance to take them all for a spin sooner rather than later.

    It’s Capcom. It will be for sale I’m sure.

    They just keep milking you fools. SFIV is the worst Street fighter ever to release no matter how many sub titles or characters they add to it. Street fighter VS Tekken will surely be crap also if they use the same engine.

    Do some research first, Super Street Fighter 4 is about $13 or about £10 over here in the UK 2nd hand.

    You can get pretty much all the other alternate outfits (should you wish too) for about £7, even if the new characters cost £5, that still comes to less than or even half the price most full price games cost these days. How is that a bad deal?

    The game may not be as pure as SF3 but it’s still a classic fighting game that single handedly brought about a resurgence in the 2D fighting genre that is happening now (Mortal Kombat, blaz blue, MvsC3 etc….)

    Your talking rubbish if you think Capcom milk games more than any other company / developer does or would when they discover a hit franchise…
