The Street Fighter Game that never was


Back in 2006, before Street Fighter IV went into production, Backbone entertainement made a proposition to Capcom to make Street Fighter IV, they even went ahead and created a bunch of concept arts, 3d models and what not.

Unseen64.net got the scoop and details of the Street Fighter IV that never was: street Fighter IV flashbacks.

From the article: "Sf4: Flashback was meant to be a 3D sequel to the Street Fighter series, with the classic 1 vs 1 fights, online play and a full single player adventure mode, know as “Ryu’s Journey”.  Ryu’s Journey was supposed to be a free-roaming 3D action game, in the vein of Ninja Gaiden or Onimusha, with levels to explore, lots of enemies to fight, NPC to talk to and final bosses.

The concept behind the “Flashback” had various meanings. The single player mode was set in Ryu’s flashback to SF2 and the story would have followed classic Street Fighter moments and revisit familiar characters.  Also,  there was meant to be a new game mechanic called “flashback ” that let the players  to rewind time to undo mistakes.

The concept arts of Street Fighter IV Flashback were made in collaboration between Backbone, Massive Black and UDON (that in the end worked on the SSFII Turbo HD Remix arts). Unreal 3 would have been used as the main 3D engine for the single and multiplayer modes.

Even if the project could have been interesting, this concept was not approved by Capcom: probably not even a playable prototype was ever made and only these few concept artworks / 3D models remain to preserve the existence of this game that will never be. "



what do you guys think? i personally would like to see an action RPG street fighter but not as SF5, maybe a separate series of some sort.

I went to the link and saw the cast... it looked decent to me, and those new characters could have been in the actual SF4.

With the idea of a game like this... it would get fans & fanboys hella upset. They'd whine and all... but then again, it doesn't seem like SF with an idea like that.

In preparation for the purchase of a tennis racquetbefore, we must consider your financial ability to bear; On this basis, a further comparison, as far as possible, choose your head tennis racquets. Now a lot of babolat pure drive and more mixed materials, the proportion of mixed-use to control the stiffness of the babolat aeropro drive and the shock-absorbing capacity, the more rigid babolat tennis racket, the swing more powerful force; but the relative resilience of the shock-absorbing capacity and wilson k factor performance of talks on the easier it is for the wrist and elbow injury.
