News: North American SF IV arcade new details

by on August 8, 2008

Robert Turner mailed me to say that based on a tip he learned of via Orochinagi, Narrows Plaza Bowling in Tacoma is definitely getting a SF IV cabinet. He called them, and they in turn referred him to Masterman vending (which, by the way, purports to be run by one Bill T Masterman). From them, Robert gleaned the following:

– The Cabinet + display should be in within the next week
– $1.00 for entry
– They won’t be able to use the IC cards due to limitations
(note that Tekken 6 also would face the same pitfall if it were brought over)
– This will be the international version of the game
– They’re planning to use LCD HD monitors to grab everyone’s attention
– SF IV may not hit other venues, but a few chosen 4 locations stateside
(*SF IV will be playable @ Kumoricon!)
(*the distributor notes that there could be a location in Edmonton, Canada TBA)
(*It will also be at the Tokyo Game Show – Final Edition?)
(another distributor – Dandy won’t comment on plans to even release their items till 6 months)

So there you go – some information, second-hand though it may be, on a slice of the SF IV North American distribution plans.
