A portable, fully-equipped, 3D-enabled conversion of Super Street Fighter IV sounded too good to be true just six months ago, but here we are in the knowledge that Capcom is bringing Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition to the 3DS with all 35 characters intact. Will it be adding more to the mix? Producer Yoshinori Ono is reluctant to confirm or deny.
RevoGamers: Will the 3DS version have any new content, like new characters or costumes?
Ono: I really want to tell you, but I can't (Laughs) You'll probably have to wait.
This interview was conducted on August 18th and Ono went on to say gamers would have to wait a month and a half for more information, which brings us neatly to the end of September, pointing to September 29th as the date we'll discover more than just the 3DS's release date and pricing.
When quizzed about the game's multiplayer modes, Ono stated the team is currently investigating how best to realise the series' famous multiplayer mode. One cryptic comment points to an as-yet unannounced multiplayer feature of the 3DS – could Ono be referring to CrossPass or something even more secretive?
So Nintendo will be announcing exactly how that's done sometime soon, and Super Street Fighter IV will be there when they announce the features.
Many, many questions will be answered next Wednesday, and we'll be here with all the information.
