The current (June 2002) issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly has an interview with Yu Suzuki, in which some of his answers to questions are "interesting," especially with the VF 4 Evolution rumors currently circulating. Here are some key excerpts. Make of them what you will: When asked about the absence of Taka-Arashi, the last part of his answer is: "... we didn't have enough time to make him work in VF4. That does not mean he won't be back. He could show up in the future." Note that this seemingly contradicts his statement in the recently published IGN interview where he says Taka has taken his last pass... When asked about how the Xbox version is coming along: "Suzuki: [looks over at Sega of Japan PR manager, mumbles something in his ear, laughs, turns to us] We can't say anything about that." To me, that's a pretty clear cut indication that an Xbox version of some sort is underway. When asked about the removal of the dodge button, his first response (before explaining its deletion): "We are considering bringing it back in the future." Here's something not a rumor: "Yes, Sarah is still my favorite character to use if I am playing against a skilled fighter. If I am playing against someone who isn't so good at VF, I'll use Lei-Fei."
