Should Capcom re-release the Street Fighter EX Trilogy for the PS4?

When it comes down to games in the Street Fighter series the EX are probably the most underrated depending on who you ask. While the Street Fighter EX games was not as popular as the Alpha or even the main series those three games did have high replay values back in the late 90’s and early 00’s for the PS1 and the PS2. Since Street Fighter has been getting a lot of mainstream attention as of late with the upcoming release of the 30th Anniversary Collection the EX series will not appear in the upcoming package on May 29th.

However, seeing a digitally remastered version of the three Street Fighter EX games on a console such as the PS4 would be awesome. Even, 2D gameplay better suits Street Fighter games in general seeing 3D fighting in any title within the series is very rare. Also, there were some cool characters in the EX series such as Skullomania, Hokuto, Doctrine Dark who never made to the main series at all. If Capcom re-released remastered versionss of the Street Fighter EX Trilogy it would definitely turn be something that would turn heads in the gaming world. But the likelihood of seeing a Street Fighter EX Trilogy re-release for the PS4 seemed unlikely as of right now.

Could the Street Fighter EX series have worked on Sega consoles during the 90’s?

Capcom had some pretty cool games when it came down to the Street Fighter series.  When the Street Fighter EX series started in the mid 90’s games where focused mainly on PlayStation consoles and despite how impressive they were there are some who could not help but feel that it could have also worked on the Sega Saturn or Dreamcast.  In terms of quality a Street Fighter EX game would have looked beautiful on the Sega Dreamcast.

However, Dreamcast was not one the same level in terms of popularity as the PS1 in countries like America, UK or even Japan.  Also, if the first Street Fighter EX game was released on Sega Saturn on one hand it would make people want to buy the console on the other hand nobody would have cared and it could have sold much less than the PS1 version of the game.

Was Marvel vs Capcom Infinite a better game than Street Fighter V?

When it comes down to fighting games developed by Capcom we have seen countless titles that have been considered a major success for many years.  While there have been some praise and criticisms of both Marvel vs Capcom Infinite and Street Fighter V they are arguably the best fighting games that the gaming world has seen within the past three years.

However, there has been debate on which game was better in terms of graphics, gameplay and overall quality.  The cool thing about Marvel vs Capcom Infinite was the inclusion of a story which was something that was never seen in the past three preceding.  But despite how creative the story mode was fans would often complain about the roster of the game. While we did see some familiar faces such as Ryu, Morrigan, Iron Man, Captain America and even Mega Man who absent in MvC3  there were characters from X-Men that people really wanted see in the game and did not get to at all.  

Back when Street Fighter V came  in February 2016 it was criticized by fans mainly due to its premature release.  However, when Capcom started adding more content to Street Fighter V with the addition of a story mode more people were impressed by the game overall.   

In terms of quality both games were creative as far as story modes are concerned.  It will be tough to tell if the sequels for either Marvel vs Capcom Infinite or Street Fighter V will be similar or not considering the fact that the producer for both games Peter Rosas went separate ways with Capcom last month.  But terms of which game was better overall some would probably say that Street Fighter V and Marvel vs Capcom were about even in terms of quality.  

Should Ultra Street Fighter 2 be released for the Nintendo 3DS?

To ask whether or not Ultra Street Fighter 2 should be released for the Nintendo 3DS is one that is very interesting.  Even though the Nintendo Switch as been doing very good in terms of sales Ultra Street Fighter II looks like a game that could work on handheld device.  While the Nintendo Switch is considered to be a hybrid console many people use to seeing old school video game remakes on Game Boy and other Nintendo handheld devices.

However, the Street Fighter II series is generally regarded as one of the best when it comes down to the fighting genre of gaming.  It deserve to be released for a home console more than it did for the Nintendo 3DS.

Could the Street Fighter EX series have worked on the N64?

The Street Fighter EX series is considered to be underrated by many people who are fans of the series.  In fact the Street Fighter EX series was the only group of games that featured 3D gameplay that was similar Tekken.  When it came down to gameplay and graphics the N64 was more superior then the 32 bit PS1.  The loading times and the graphics for the Street Fighter EX titles were among the few things that deduced from the overall quality of the past games.   

When it came down to fighting titles of the mid to late there were many games that we saw on the PS1 both 2D and 3D considering the fact that Nintendo decided to stick to utilizing cartridges instead of CD Roms for gaming media.  However, the N64 did produce some decent yet somewhat unrecognizable fighting titles such as Flying Rift, Mace the Dark Age, Fighters Destiny, Killer Instinct 2, etc.  While the Street Fighter EX series may have had better gameplay and graphics for the N64 it may not have become as popular as it did if was not featured on the PS1 in the mid to late 90’s.
