Vega and M. Bison return in SFIV

It looks like the SFIV character roster continues to expand and with it come some characters that might be an old favorite (or not). In pictures revealed by Famitsu, we see that both Vega and M.Bison are returning to the scene in SFIV. I never cared much for M. Bison but I did occasionally play as Vega but honestly it has been a while since I played any Street Fighter game to remember all of the details on their moves. Go here for all the new pics.

Speaking of SFIV, it seems that Capcom still hasn’t found a distributor for the title in the US but it’s unsure as to which distributors they have contacted so far. I know of at least one fairly large distributor that they haven’t contacted yet – here’s hoping that they will soon. And if no one wants to carry the full cabinet then Capcom should at least make the kit available – there are HD coin-op cabinets out there that it could go into. Either way I will personally find a way to get my hands on this later in the year for my own arcade and I’m quite sure that I’m not alone on that.

    That’s what it’s sounding like, Arcade Renaissance has a post about it with more details. It looks like the Rumble Fish developer is working on it.

    I want to get in-front of the US Capcom guys and relieve myself on their board room table!

    I have had it – they claimed serious arcade interest but do not want to admit there is a market in the States so hide behind the comment “cant find a distributor willing” – when they mean none will work with the restrictions and price they (and Taito) want.

    They tried to say Tekken 6 has not made it so they wont either – then when it was pointed out the number of T6 machines in the US and CA they changed the subject.

    Same is happening in UK – they showed the cabinet to the consumer press but not the amusement trade (wont let it out of their office for test)!
