Capcom Teases Street Fighter “Surprises” for Summer

By   /   Jan 21, 2017

Street Fighter will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in August this year, a major milestone for both fans and the iconic franchise itself.

Speaking to IGN, series producer Yoshinori Ono teased that there are “surprises” waiting to be unveiled for the fighting series. Capcom apparently plans to celebrate the momentous anniversary by making a couple of major announcements that will take fans by surprise.

“Around E3 timing, maybe even San Diego Comic-Con, we have one or two surprises we hope our fans will look forward to,” he said.

Ono, however, didn’t clarify as to whether the upcoming announcements pertain to the latest Street Fighter V installment or the series itself. A couple of weeks back, Capcom announced Ultra Street Fighter II for the Nintendo Switch. Hence, it’s logical to assume that the developer may be planning to breathe life into other classic branches of the series.

“I’ll let you know that the surprises this year are not going to be Rival Schools,” he added. Knowing the trolling nature of Ono, as well as the various Rival Schools easter eggs hidden away in Dead Rising 4, could it be that we’ll be seeing Capcom bring back the youthful setting of Aoharu City?

The last installment in the Rival Schools series was Project Justice: Rival Schools 2 which released in 2000 for arcades, Dreamcast, and Sega NAOMI. It was a direct sequel to the first Rival Schools: United By Fate installment, released in 1997.

What are you hoping for the surprise announcements to turn out? Let us know in the comments below.
