I know lots of speculation have been running around concerning Street Fighter 4, most of it being nothing more than hoaxes, misinterpretation, or silly rumors.
I noticed sfdevotion talked about receiving some weird email from a Japanese guy (presumably working for Capcom), and it made me think about my own, weird SF4-related experience.
One of my best buddies was at the EBGames Vendor’s Show last week, which was held Ottawa, and hanged around the Capcom booth. He’s as much of a Street Fighter fan as I am, so he asked the rep about the Street Fighter 4 rumors. The rep seemed surprised to see somebody that was still into fighting games, and told him there just might be good news around the corner. He asked him “You like 3D fighters, don’t you?”
My buddy shook his head, saying that he was into 2D fighters. The rep looked at him funny, and stopped caring about him, going over to the other attendees.
What does this mean? Could the rumored SF4 be really some half-assed 3D effort after all?
This sounds weird, and doesn’t fit with the e-mail sfdevotion received, but again, I don’t know if I can trust anything regarding SF4 anymore…
I just felt like sharing this.
