This will probably start some speculation…
"In response to being asked for details on 3rd Strike Online:
Sven - Not a chance… this is one of the projects I’m most excited about and we’re keeping things under wraps until we’re much closer to release. "
I have my god damn fingers and toes crossed that this dude is only excited because the online features and netcode is fucking god like. Unfortunately though, this is Capcom were talking about and your favorite fighter remake is NEVER safe in the hands of business men. I don’t understand why this game would be “under wraps” if it were just a simple re-port with great online features, this to me sounds like there is definitely some changes on the way and I can only hope its something like being able to create your own personal character color scheme or some shit. With that being said, I love 3s the way it is and don’t want it to be changed at all, but when I sit down and actually ask myself if Sean or some other gimp character were buffed a bit, would I actually not play the game? If the system mechanics and flow of the game don’t change and it still feels like my favorite fighter, then no. I hope everybody else that doesn’t want the game to be changed feels the same optimism as me.
PS: Heard some shit about Westcoast Warzone taking out 3s for UMK3? How a broken dumb ass game like UMK3 replaces 3s is beyond me. 3s is really the most unappreciated fighting game in America.
