Capcom Partners With Street Fighter IV Co-Developer Dimps For New Fighting Game

Could it be the next Street Fighter?

The father of Street Fighter Yoshinori Ono has revealed that developer Dimps is working on a new project with Capcom.

Earlier today, Ono tweeted that Capcom were recruiting new staff to work with Dimps studio for a "new FG." Dimps co-developed Street Fighter IV with Capcom, and was responsible for programming and balancing the game. The studio is no stranger to working on fighting games, having developed Street Fighter X Tekken and the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai series, among others.

Street Fighter V was teased by Ono during E3 this year, who tweeted that the game was still in its "early planning stages" and that more details would be shared "at a later date." The game has not yet been officially announced, although Capcom producer Tomoaki Ayano has said that the game might not be released until 2018.

No thank you.  Capcom hasn't made a great fighting game in YEARS.


I'm gonna stick with SNK and ArcSystemWorks for now.

Probably the only new game they can afford and is simple to create is Puzzle Fighter 4.

I'm hoping for Darkstalkers 4, but I can almost guarantee its Street Fighter 5 or Street Fighter related...

"The father of Street Fighter 4, Yoshinori Ono" I believe you mean.

If it is, I hope they stuff everything, and I mean EVERYTHING into one game so I don't have to buy a separate "Ultra", "Super" or "X Tekken" versions for all the characters / levels / etc.

Didn't they say they don't have the money to make Street Fighter 5? What could've gotten them the money?

Loved USF4. It'll be a game I'll play for years. But I hope they try out something different. They can't just rely on Ryu and Street Fighter forever.

Dimps.....the one that did justice to Sonic? I'm in! Sure Lost world on 3DS wasn't great but still it was ok at best.

I wonder what happened to Tekken X Street Fighter? Was that quietly cancelled?

To hell with Street Fighter! I want a new Darkstalkers game or a new Rival Schools game!

Is the game called or is it going to be a full version of SUPER ULTRA DEAD RISING 3 ARCADE REMIX HYPER EDITION EX + ALPHA.  The game looks a little like State of Emergency for the Playstation 2 made by Rockstar games.

Why is there so much About DLC around the World and on the web while the whole time in game progress that provides new features or items is not talked about.  It is free and it takes the time to beat the game and find out other avenues to enhance the game through in game video game developments.  I mean, common' that's how you know you are making progress in the game.

It's disappointing to know Capcom is going to be involved. All it means for us is that they'll remake it a year after selling you it and it'll have DLC to buy a week after launch, probably something along the lines of unlocking the rest of the character roster that comes packed on the disk.

The next in the Street Fighter saga is a game called "Tekken x Street Fighter" or "Tekken Cross Street Fighter" produced by Namco and Capcom.  That games has been slated and the development is near finished or completed and is developed for ports on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo & PC.

I know we don't like to think about it (too much) but could you imagine if Capcom dissolved and the franchises were sold off? Could you imagine Street Fighter or Resident Evil in Konami's, Naughty Dog's, or Rockstar's hands? That would be interesting.

Probably gonna be Hyper Ultra Street Fighter IV Alpha Third Strike Tubro Championship HD Remix

@Scynt How would you "weaken" the Dragonball fighters so they will be on a similar fight level? They had to weaken superman (and the other dc supers) to fight mortal kombat fighters so the same would have to happen here.

@ECH71 You can hope in one hand and $h!t in the other and we'll see which will fill up first LOL. No it sucks to have the super, ultra, uber,  X, Z, SE, Turbo, and whatever else they can think of to just make money. Then the DLC will be all over the place with new outfits, colors, and other things as if hardcore Street Fighter players need to accessorize their fighters.

@tom_cat_01 Nope it was recently announced to still be in development and moving along.

@milleniaxender  Rival Schools was never officially released as a game on the Playstation 1 sort of like the Double Dragon fighting game.  It was a game if you could find it and pay the price for it.  Rival Schools might be a game in the future, but everyone says they want to see Rival Schools for some reason.  Where did you first read that? lol

I saw this post and was hanging around on the page trying to remember what Super Ultra Dead Rising...... was called.  I forgot the name.

@Drkoolbeanz  DLC is scheduled and is released sometimes or packaged with the game or on the delux or complete version.  It can also be downloaded.  It is possible that Characters and Add-ons will be available through beating the game or parts of the game.

@rawkstar007 i would love a Naughty Dog Resident Evil * realises that will never happen, goes and plays The Last of Us *

@deadpen @Scynt it was a joke, since that's basically all Dimps has the skill to make. And even that series doesn't show off any development skill in any release.
