Version 2013 hits tomorrow, with UI, mechanics and character balancing changes. It has been confirmed that this version of the game will be a main tournament game at EVO 2013 in July and will be a 1 on 1 competition as opposed to Vanilla SFxT's 2 on 2 competition. It will also feature prominently at the IGN Pro League this year.
The latest member of the FGC to join Capcom Combofiend, Peter Rosas, has been going through character specific changes in detail in a bunch of videos.
Who's planning on trying it? Will it be laughed off the stage at EVO? Are there any fans of Vanilla SFxT?
I think it'll have a following, it is a Capcom game after all, but only the top players will give it a chance. It has a lot of work to do to win back players who don't intend to make money from it. I'm just happy to see less time-outs, less jab jab jab jab and more KOs. It's impossible that it could somehow be a worse game with the update than without it.
