I’ve thought that Final Fight was a popular game and I still take that game over Streets of Rage any day. But what I didn’t know is that Capcom would make Final Fight characters playable in Street Fighter Alpha Series Guy, Cody, Rolento, and Sodom pretty much in my book made that game worth the play at least I’d would play these guy’s. Hugo then made an appearance in 3rd Strike so if you wanted to take care of Gill easily you would use Hugo, not only that but Hugo was pretty mobile in 3rd Strike. Also Maki from Cap vs SNK 2. SSF4 comes around and Guy and Cody again made a pretty good impact on the game and there were even rumors that Rolento would be a DLC character at the time. Also Haggar in MVC3. Street Fighter X Tekken is now having Rolento, leaks say Guy and Cody, but Poison is apart of the fight. Which begs 2 questions. How many more Final Fight characters will Capcom insert into Street Fighter and does it make Street Fighter better? Defintely it does.
Final Fight alone is still maybe the top ten beat em up games, that everyone will still remember on top of the fact that most of the enemy’s on that game are memorable outside of the fact that Capcom is ressurecting these characters, thus it adds more color and value to Street Fighter series itself. But the only problem with Capcom adding FF characters is that they are too low tier and will not overshadow or become as powerful characters than Street Fighter Originals. I defintely don’t expect Poison to make any noise whatsoever in STF X Tekken but I think people would play with her including myself of course, but when the time comes for players to get real for tournaments most will drop her and aim for higher tier characters from both sides. But I am predicting the next SSF4 Versions will include even more FF characters specifically more from The Mad Gear gang like Thrasher and Abigail. What do you think?
