    Of course she plays different, that was never in doubt, it was the monthg's long hype and teases leading up to her reveal that pissed everyone off. Even though it was obvious they were reusing assets all around, the way they announced her left much to be desired. Also she is a boring looking character, this isn't the 90's where everyone needs an evil edgy version of themselves, I'm sure she will play great but any of the other dolls would of been better than her. I would even preferred an "Evil" Sakura, or "Holy" Ken, I would have been fine if they reused Dan's model and pasted a Tengu mask on him, there you go, Dan's father, a new more interesting character with minimal effort to create. Still looking forward to trying her it out and I'm in there day one but Capcom keeps doing these things to themselves with how they promote their shit.

    It would have been nice if Capcom hadn't majorly fucked up the reveal, though. Decapre isn't interesting from a story perspective, either... although I suppose I'm in a weird category of people who actually care about the Street Fighter story. ...I may have been part of a Street Fighter/KoF crossover MU* for awhile.

    I wish the fans (including GR) would stop trying to help Capcom rationalise what's essentially a clone character. They clearly chose Decapre because it requires less character model work, and less move-set development. We all saw the trailer; at least 50% of the moves were straight up Cammy'isms. Even if they've gotten rid of some of them, I think news outlets still have a journalistic responsibility to call Capcom out for such laziness. Just consider the alternative: why didn't they create an ACTUALLY new character?!

    "Just consider the alternative: why didn't they create an ACTUALLY new character?!" Because that would cost a lot of money and time. If they did create a new character, they would have to make a new model, with new rigging, new backstory, new designs, all done from scratch. This would cost capcom a lot of money and on top of hat, delay Ultra until 2015, seeing how they'd have to put in much more work and time into one new character. If it got delayed until 2015, there would be less hype from the FGC seeing how they would have to wait longer for something that was originally going to be a balance update and it wouldn't have made it in time for EVO this year, which would be another blow. Is it lazy, or is it saving money when they really need it?

    Its lazy. this is maybe the 5th iteration of street fighter 4. I call lazy.
  • Teh_Ty - March 27, 2014 8:14 p.m.

    The reason there's even a fifth iteration is because the FGC wants it. Because the FGC has been asking for balancing for over a year now and capcom thought they would make some money off it as well and put some new characters and features in to change up the meta.
  • lewis-barclay - March 27, 2014 10:21 p.m.

    Eh. I cant really support capcom anymore. Sf4=bought it and loved it, ssf4 new modes, characters and such AND a lower price?= bought it and loved it, I think ssf4 arcade edition came out next= wanted it until I saw the price went BACK up so it was a no go. I wanna say turbo was next but by then I lost interest. The price shouldn't have went back up. I gave up on sf after that. Still great games but they're milking it too much.
  • lewis-barclay - March 27, 2014 4:26 p.m.

    I wanted to say clone characte but I thought I'd be torn apart for it....but your right. Just a lil costume swap and a few different moves and BOOM. New character.
  • lewis-barclay - March 27, 2014 4:56 a.m.

    wait...... ANOTHER street fighter 4? How many sf4s Does that make now? 4 or 5? This is why I don't respect capcom anymore. We COULD actually try and create something new.....or Just keep making half assed sequels that could just be a few more characters and play modes through dlc.
  • Teh_Ty - March 27, 2014 9:23 a.m.

    This IS dlc. It's also an option to buy it on a disc which gives the player all costumes from previous games, but it's also dlc which can be bought if you have any copy of Super Street Fighter IV that isn't "Vanilla" Street Fighter IV

    I'm glad she's very different and sounds like a fun character to master. Thanks Lucas
