Honestly, I find some of the touted “new features” to be a bit… weird. Or at least not what I would front as any kind of selling point for a video game. Automatic passive “figurine” battles doesn’t sound particularly “fun” (you’re not even doing anything!), and I can’t see the “Spectator Mode” being an especially popular option (how often are you going to run into two people playing Street Fighter on the street?). Then again, I don’t live in Japan. Trading collectibles also hasn’t ever really appealed to me – but I certainly don’t speak for the millions of kids who are all over stuff like that.
Trailers to follow. The first’s an intro trailer showing off some of these new features; the second’s a pure gameplay teaser.
