IMPO they should make what i like to think of as an "Ultimate Street Fighter" like their version of TTT 2; so basically it is non canon storyline wise and is just a huge compilation of ALL the characters that have ever been in Street Fighter...cause if there is one thing i am sick of over the years of palying Street Fighter games (as much as i love them) it is how u can never get just one game and enjoy it fulyl cause there isn't a single game with all the characters (like MK Armageddon or TTT 2). So fo the sheer sake of enjoying online and offline gameplay with friends and being able to be whoever you like...ULTIMATE STREET FIGHTER !!!...78 characters: Ryu, Ken, E. Honda, Chun Li, Guile, Charlie, Dhalsim, Blanka, Zangief, Sakura, Vega, Balrog, Birdie, M.Bison, Sagat, Fei Long, Rose, Cammy/ Killer Bee, Dan, Gen, Dee Jay, Adon, Shin, Dudley, Ibuki, Guy, Cody, Makoto, Yun Lee, Yang Lee, Hackan, Juri, Rufus, C.Viper, Abel, El Fuerte, Elena, Hugo, Poison, Rolento, Sean, Alex, Ingrid, R.Mika, Oro, Kairi, Hokuto, Pullum, Darun, Skullomania, Doctrine Dark, Cracker Jack, Blair, Vulcanno Rosso, Sharon, Juli, T.Hawk, Juni, Allen, Maki, Noembelu, Ace, Nanase, Area, Remy, Evil Ryu (unlock), Seth (unlock), Akuma (unlock), Gouken (unlock), Garuda (unlock), Q (unlock), Twelve (unlock), Necro (unlock), Shadowgeist (unlock), Urien (unlock), Gill (unlock), Oni (unlock).

before anyone asks 'where the hell is shin akuma' i'll tell u what the makers of street fighter said, Oni was created to replace him, Oni represents what Akuma will become if he COMPLETLEY succumbs to the demonic evil inside him. every character above has appeared in one street fighter game or another...it is time they stopped making games of small numbers of characters i mean seriously tekken can outrank them...they need an ULTIMATE game designed purely for game play fun like TTT 2.

You know how impossible it is to balance all those characters with each other, how many man hours it would take to model each character and create animations, frame data, supers, ultras, costumes ect? Not to mention the development time and costs.

If you want all characters play Mugen or something

TTT2 has 59 playable characters (41 arcade version) with quite a few being more or less identical (Eddy, Tiger, Christie, Slim Bob, as a few examples), SSFIV AE has 39 that are all unique with their own move sets and properties, so that's pretty comparable if you ask me.

Akuma will never go away either, he is a staple to that series like Ryu.

It'd be cool having a game that brings together all of the history but I do think AE has pretty much the best roster of any fighting game so far, just a shame Urien didn't make it in. Would love to see aegis reflector in the AE engine.

We really need more identical fighting games just with more characters.

I just want another game with the Alpha characters in it again. Mainly Karen. I heard Capcom lacks the rights to her so they can't right now.

So you want alpha 3?

Plus, if it's not going to be balanced, which this idea cannot be, it's not worth playing.

Why 78 characters? We all know you'll pick Ken anyway.

I'd like to see them go the other way with the next Street Fighter and have less characters. I'd rather they focus their time making the characters fun to play and well balanced.

I suspect Street Fighter V would be more worthwhile but for now they're better off not angering anymore people about constant releases.

The way forward until 2014/2015, at the very least the next-gen consoles, is to continue releasing free balance patches for AE, UMvC3 and X Tekken.

@idyce88 Yoshinori Ono (producer of SF4 series) has hinted recently that he'd like to do an Alpha 4, which would be cool. For me personally, I'm not really in favor of throwing everything but the kitchen sink at one title. I like it when each series has its own distinctive flavor.

The problem with tons of characters is that you still, in the end, feel like there's only 10 maybe viable characters. It always feels stuffed with fluff characters, not matter the size of the roster. Not to say that there shouldn't be a good amount, but I feel like SFIVAE has a pretty good amount without being to over-size. I'd take a balanced smaller roster over a imbalanced larger roster any day.

You know, a couple of years ago I would all over that too. I just have no faith in Capcom after all the bunk that fans had to go through with UMvC3 and Street Fighter x Tekken. That and Darkstalkers 3 is just such a tough act to follow.

At least with next gen on the horizon they have one less excuse for why there is no new Darkstalkers.
