Fans have uncovered pretty telling files in the latest 1.06 patch for the relatively game cosplay costume, the one which lets you download characters as DLC packs and these give a decent look into what future video game stars game cosplay plans to release into its all-star fighting game.
Specifically, it was the wrong version of Ultra Street Fighter 4 in use at the NorCal Regionals, reports The Daily Dot. By the time tournament organizers discovered version 1.00 instead of 1.04 was in use, four matches in the quarterfinal round already had been played.
Far and away, the most exciting is Ryu from Street Fighter. A Reddit post points out two sound files that indicate his appearance might be happening soon: a victory theme and music straight from Ryu’ Level in Street Fighter II.
The rumor also seems to have a little weight because others point out that similar files regarding Mother 3′s Lucas also appear, and he was confirmed to be the first DLC character after Mewtwo makes the rounds for Club Nintendo members. Files for Fire Emblem‘s Roy also were uncovered in the patch, hinting as his return to the fighting stage after being absent from Brawl.
Very interesting stuff, and shinyquagsire23 even states to Polygon that “although it’s unfortunately difficult to prove its legitimacy when you only have sound files to work with. I certainly don’t blame the scene for questioning the legitimacy of the leak though given what happened with the Rayman leak,” trying to make this leak seem more genuine by acknowledging a previous prank.
If this rumor pans out, Ryu will join Capcom’s own Mega Man, Bandai Namco’s PAC-MAN, and SEGA’s Sonic the Hedgehog as the third-party characters in Super Smash Bros. It makes me wish Konami still wanted to be involved because Simon Belmont and Snake would fit nicely among those ranks.
This weekend saw the latest event in Capcom’s Pro Tour for Street Fighter 4 except for one problem: the wrong version of Street Fighter 4 was used.
Capcom staff, reports The Daily Dot, made the hard call of ordering those matches replayed. One of the original winners ended up a loser — Ryota “Kazunoko” Inoue lost to Du “Nuckledu” Dang in a sweep.
How did this happen? According to John Choi, a tournament organizer, the facility had also been used for another event (Super Smash Bros.). The proper version of Ultra Street Fighter 4 had been loaded onto a console that belonged to another player, who left and took the system home.
Choi replaced it with another system bearing Ultra Street Fighter 1.04, but at the end of the Smash Bros. event, someone put an Ultra Street Fighter 4 disc in the tray, causing that system to default to the original disc version instead of using the one from the hard drive.
As Inoue is from Japan, Choi has offered to pay his expenses to another Capcom Pro Tour event in California, says the Dot. Inoue ended up tied for seventh in the event.
