Super Street Fighter IV is All About the Community

Posted by James Newton

Ono, it's true

Capcom brawler Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition is one of the stand-out titles in the list of 3DS launch games, so much so that Nintendo President Satoru Iwata sat down with Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono to discuss the title's origins and how it takes advantage of the 3DS's features.

Considering the machine's power and 3D screen have attracted most attention in the press, it may surprise some that Ono decided to focus on the console's communication features to get the most from the new title.

As well as the StreetPass modes, the game also includes a spectator mode with voice chat so that viewers can discuss what they're seeing. Outside of that, the game will also feature online play, with Ono hoping to build a large community of pocket pugilists through these communication features:

With so many functions, I believed you’d be able to communicate in a variety of ways through Nintendo 3DS games. And I hope to do it with Street Fighter. I’m willing to try out any number of ways to accomplish that.

Nintendo Europe and Nintendo America will market and distribute Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition in their respective territories, an indication of the faith the company has in Capcom's launch title. Ono showed himself to be as much a fan of Iwata's work as vice-versa, as he asked the Nintendo President to sign a copy of NES title Balloon Fight, on which Iwata was lead programmer.

I think it's a 2D image of a 3D game. Could be wrong, though.

Man I wish some of these upcoming 3DS games would come out on the Wii, I'm all ready getting sick of all the 3DS love.

Awesome! This makes me want to get it MORE!


All you nintendo-haters can suck it. Even the Capcom Producer is a fan of The Big N!

Boy, i hope King of Fighters 13 comes on the 3DS too. That would be great. I love Fighters, both of those on this system would be great. I haven't played a Street Fighter since the second on Sega Genesis, so i'm interested in this.

I'll only be impressed when Nintendo starts releasing 3D images of 2D games.

This is so.... I can't describe it =') but it's beautiful!

funny, I should probably want to play the game more... but I REALLY like the sound of watching others play while voice chatting with other spectators.

Voice chat sounds nifty... But is it with your friend coded people only? And can you talk with the people fighting too?
