Capcom confirmed to Gamereactor España that 3U servers will be separate.
"Japanese will play with Japanese, Americans with Americans and Europeans with Europeans."
This information was provided to Gamereactor by Capcom after their recent interview with Ryozo Tsujimoto. They will be running the full story later today.
Yuri L. Araujo,Capcom's community specialist says ""I'm not thrilled with the servers being split, either.I am definitely aware of the demand and feedback, not only in this thread, but also from threads before finding out these bad news; so be sure that I will pass it along. There is no guarantee this will change, though."
What an absolutely **** week for Nintendo this has turned out to be.
I'm going to be buying the game still, but it sucks that I won't be able to play with my friends who live outside of EU.
Thanks Capcom, thanks a lot.
