Been wanting to make a thread about this for a while so here goes:
Anyone who has information about this topic please post it so we can all better understand what happened.
Basically this thread is going to look at the facts and try to see what went wrong:
Street Fighter Series:
I remember a while back, say about '01, reading an interview with street fighter creator in EGM, one of the questions was, “will you guys ever make SF IV?”
To which he answered, roughly, “First we intend to make SF III: Dash, another installment in the SFIII series, and then yes we definetly plan to make SF IV”
-Does anybody know why the relationship between him and capcom went sour? and why he left?
-Has anybody heard anything about his new dragonball z game that was out in Japan in arcades?
Don’t know much about what happened here except I know capcom lost the license to marvel, but that doesn’t mean they couldn’t still make a game that played like marvel 2. I also remember an interview with him, on the internet, in which he (head director/producer) stated that he had plans to make marvel 3, so that shows he wanted to do it, and he also said he was looking into possibly making marvel vs DC…damn that would have been sick!
- Is he still with capcom? If not has he done any games recently?
- Why would they throw away that great gameplay system just because they lost the rights?
- Is that the same guy who created the darkstalkers series?
Don’t know hardly anything about this series, except that I can assume that once playmore revived SNK, Capcom wasn’t getting the SNK Character rights for as cheap as before.
-Did the team who made this series do anyother capcom fighters?
- Couldn’t capcom work out a deal with playmore to use their chrs.
Overall I just get the idea that capcom is run by a very stubborn head ceo in Japan, Kinda like Steinbrener of the yanks
I mean why wouldn’t they do everything in their power to keep the guy who created their beloved SF, and who just made the great 3s. In his interview he definetly seemed like he was still very much interested in continuing his work on SF, So what happened?
Any info please share…sorry for the loooong post
