Finally buckling to years of pressure from fans, Capcom Japan has just announced the ever anticipated Street Fighter vs Care Bears game. Slated for a January 2008 release, this title promises to be the most anticipated VS title since Capcom vs the Muppet Babies. Experts are also expecting Street Fighter vs Care Bears to outsell all previous Capcom titles.
The delay in releasing this oft-requested game was primarily due to difficulties in balancing gameplay. Apparently, it was hard to make a level playing field between the Street Fighter characters and the Care Bear characters. The Care Bears are simply too powerful.
“We believe that the balancing is as good as it can get without us having to weaken the Care Bear characters to an unrealistic level” Said a senior Capcom game designer. Apparently, the biggest challenge came at the game-testing level. Capcom game testers simply refused to choose the Street Fighter characters preferring the loveable Care Bears. In the end, the design leads figure most players would also choose the Bears when the game is finally released.
Surprisingly, the game will not launch Worldwide upon release. Instead, Capcom opted to release the game in its two largest global markets; Iran and Madagascar. The Worldwide release is to follow a short 2 months later. The move has upset many American consumers who are now petitioning the US government to launch a “pre-emptive strike” against the government of Iran with the intention of annexing the country before the launch date.
Bad apples aside, the rest of the world is eagerly anticipating this title and are already sending mass e-mails to Capcom requesting a new Street Fighter vs My Little Pony game.
