Here is more content from last Saturday’s Capcom Pro Tour Finals in San Francisco. After the new trailer reveal with the Charlie teaser (see last post for video clip), Capcom’s one and only Yoshinori Ono was able to give further details about what to expect for their upcoming titular fighting game. He also announced the raising of stakes for the next Capcom Pro Tour by stating that the grand prize pool will be over $500,000…guaranteed! That’s one way for me to grab my MvC3 fight stick out of the closet try to revitalize my (very short) fighting game career!
Afterwards, Capcom’s own Peter “Combofiend” Rosas and Twitch’s Mike Ross took the main stage to provide the crowd with a live gameplay demonstration of the next-gen fighting game. For those who haven’t heard these two names, Combofiend and Ross are highly involved in the fighting game community, let alone legendary Street Fighter players. So not only were we able to check out some the old and new features to the game but also get firsthand knowledge of the game’s combat system. Check out the clip at the top and tell me what you think. Me? I’m looking forward to being able to knock friends and family into a bowl of noodles. If you’re reading this, get ready Dar!
