Street Fighter IV Sequel ‘Practically Confirmed’

June 20, 2009 Written by Dan Massi

A sequel to the highly-rated Street Fighter IV was ‘practically confirmed’ during Capcom’s latest QA blog.

Capcom dropped a few hints on the sequel, including a couple of new characters and various updates to the game. Remember, there were two sequels to Street Fighter III – 2nd Impact and 3rd Strike, so it’s not really surprising, to say the least.

Here’s the information that Capcom has provided us:

“A new character who is Gouken’s daughter. She is “probably is as strong as Ryu, Ken or Akuma” and “maybe can do a one handed hadouken like his father can.”

Rolento is mentioned as a possible character.

Special intros (Gouken vs Ryu, for example) will probably be added in the next update or next version.

They want to add a ‘diagram’, a tier chart showing the results of each match-up. This was supposedly included with Street Fighter IV at some point during development to help balance the characters.”

Capcom also mentioned a possible survey for Street Fighter IV in order to find out what players want. It’s unknown at this time though if this is meant for Japanese players only, or if it also concerns North American and European players as well.
