Seth Killian Offers His Opinion on Ultra Street Fighter IV and Rebalancing in Interview with Screw Attack

By on July 17, 2013 at 5:08 pm

Screw Attack caught up with Seth Killian at Evo 2013 last weekend for a short interview about the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV. While Seth no longer works with Capcom, he provided some insight on how much work rebalancing actually takes. So, even though the new characters that were revealed are using assets from Street Fighter x Tekken, Capcom obviously has to spend a ton of effort to get them playable in a classic Street Fighter context.

Seth also reveals his pick (which he makes with no inside knowledge!) for the mystery fifth character. I won’t spoil it, but it’s definitely a character many fans have been asking for.

      You’re going to be hurt then unfortunately…it is a character never before seen in any fighting game before, according to Capcom…

  • Michael_Glade

    maybe you shouldnt have quit capcom then your opinion might matter

  • Louis Lam

    Sad that he left Capcom for that dead PSAS crap 🙁

      Seth is a reasonable dude, he wouldn’t have left just for money or he’d probly working on the new KI (he’s more qualified for 2d fighters that IMO).
      I think he could tell that there would be no new fighters from Capcom after SFXT for a while so he moved on.
      That said, I have nothing against Microsoft and I’m open minded about KI,
      but leaving Namco? I don’t get it.
