Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist Is Going To Become A Reality

As you may already know, Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist is the new venture from the team that did Street Fighter: Legacy back in 2010.  Having shown that they have the skill and passion to do SF justice, the team behind Assassin’s Fist went to the Kickstarter route to gather the additional finance required to make the series a reality.

Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist Launches Kickstarter Campaign, Announces Cast Members

The Street Fighter franchise is finally poised to make a comeback in the world of cinema after a long and rather depressing history.  As you may recall, last Summer we received the rather exciting news that Capcom had given the team behind the short film Street Fighter: Legacy the ok to move forward with a full-on series.  Dubbed Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, the series is still moving forward but now it needs a little help from the gaming community via Kickstar

Most of the time would-be dream battles never become a reality since doing franchise mash-ups isn’t the cup of tea for protective companies and developers.  We are slowly creeping into a realm in which some notable mash-ups are happening thanks to things such as Dead or Alive 5 featuring Virtua Fighter characters and of course there are games like PlayStation All-Stars.  But what would a 1 vs. 1 battle featuring video game characters be like if it was depicted in live-action?

The video game industry could be facing a turning point in a sense as something that has been long associated with utter disappointment could soon give us a level of depth never before seen in a video game. No, I’m not talking about some new tech fad or how we actually play our games, but how we see our favorite video games adapted into the much sought after realm of live-action.  Movies or TV shows based on video games have had a checkered history with some being great (Mortal Kombat), some being ok (Silent Hill), and some being complete abominations (Doom).  

TL;DR - Feb 28 - SF Monopoly, White X360, Lionhead Teaser

Alright late-night Shogun fans! Time for another edition of TL;DR, recapping some of the days stories that either fell through the cracks, or were just too small to warrant their own individual pieces. Today I shine the spotlight on the new Xbox Special Edition announcement, Street Fighter getting its only Monopoly board game, and Lionhead’s teaser/countdown site which looks like it will end during GDC…

 

Capcom unveils the new features for Super Street Fighter IV 3DS Edition [Video]

Along with Resident Evil: Revelations and Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, Capcom is also giving 3DS gamers Super Street Fighter IV 3D.  Featuring the core content of its HD brother, the 3DS version of SSFIV also boasts two original new features which truly take advantage of the capabilities of the 3DS.

A few more screens of Super Street Fighter IV on the 3DS

At this point I think people are still getting a grasp of how much potential power the Nintendo 3DS has. In the past Nintendo has never really pushed out products that push the graphical capabilities of things but that’s changing with the 3DS.  It may still be too early tell if the 3DS will become the new king for handheld graphics, but it certainly has the potential to be so, especially if these Super Street Fighter IV screens are any indication.

New Street Fighter X Tekken screens show more ass kicking

If the SDCC reveal left you wanting more then perhaps this new batch of Street Fighter X Tekken screens will satisfy your hunger. Once again the screens feature Ryu and Chun-Li as they lay a can of whup-ass upon Nina Williams and Kazuya Mishima.  It would’ve been nice if the screens featured a new character or location but with Gamescom happening next week, maybe we’ll be lucky to get such a thing. In fact, Tekken X Street Fighter is supposed to make its debut, that’s barring if the Press Release/Media Invite screwed things up.

Capcom announces Street Fighter X Tekken

The unthinkable has finally happened and worlds have collided in a mash-up that many folks have been asking for.  After it was rumored earlier this week, the wildly popular Street Fighter and Tekken franchises are indeed crossing over in two dual release games.  Announced today at the San Diego Comic Con, Street Fighter X Tekken (best name ever) will have the fighters of Street Fighter and Tekken facing off against one another.

RUMOR OF THE DECADE: Capcom vs. Namco/Namco vs. Capcom

This is one of those cases where an amazing rumor has popped up and if it doesn’t pan out there’s going to be an angry mob that descends upon the rumor source. Generally Game Informer has always been on the mark, but I hope for their sake that this rumor is true or at least is announced later this year if not this week.  So let’s get to the rumor: reportedly Capcom and Namco Bandai are teaming up for a fighting game crossover in the form of Capcom vs. Namco.
