Ono on Street Fighter X Tekken: No disc-based ‘Super’ updates, new netcode

Street Fighter X Tekken producer Yoshinori Ono told Gematsu during New York Comic Con that we shouldn’t expect to see a ‘Super’ or ‘Ultimate’ version of Street Fighter X Tekken at retail after release. If any updates are worked on, they will be released digitally.

“If we decide to create a new version of the game, we will go with the Street Fighter IV series route, by providing online update patches for the game,” Ono said. “So I would say that you don’t really need to worry about a new version of the game coming out.

“If we choose to update the game, it will be done in the same fashion as Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition,” he continued.

Ono also touched on Street Fighter X Tekken‘s netcode in the interview, saying that Capcom is introducing “new” netcode in the game, rather than borrowing the netcode used in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 or Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.

Ono doesn’t exactly have the most perfect track record for accuracy when it comes to additional, retail-based updates to games, so you may need to take that part with a grain of salt. The new netcode is potentially good news for those of you who took issue with SSF4AE‘s netcode, though.
