I thought it would be an interesting idea for the Blazbule, SF4 or any fighting game cabinets in the future (For the western side at least) to include a tutorial video that explains the games mechanics, small strats etc.
It should be included along side the intro (Before you put in any quarters) being played in a loop, or they can play the tutorial video by pressing the start button (No credits inserted).
I think it would be a great concept to draw in casual players. If all fighting games included some kind of detailed explanation on how to play them, then people would be more interested on what those fighting games are capable of.
However, companies don’t seem to really care. Only two games that I know of included a tutorial section in their practice mode. Soul Calibur 3, and VF4: Evo.
I would love to see fighters just as popular as FPS in the western market. It’s nothing but a dream though. :shake:
I think these small additions would help grow the fighting game community.
