Hm, I just posted this at StreetFighterDevotion, but I thought it could be nice to post it here as well considering the larger community…
I just noticed something on the title screen of Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX. A very ominous line, at the bottom of the screen, that says :
CAPCOM U.S.A., INC. 1998, 2006 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Sure, I had heard some rumors about Capcom USA now holding the rights to the franchise before, but this pretty much comfirms it. What exactly does this mean? Is it truly the end of the Street Fighter series as we know and love it? Does this mean that if they ever make another game, it’ll go all ghetto and hip-hop like Final Fight Streetwise?
Why did Capcom of Japan do that? Was the SF brand that much popular over here that they felt the US branch should be dealing with it?
Does anybody has any details about it? What about the Udon guys? Or are they even allowed to talk about it?
I was just wondering if there was an official word out there, somewhere.
