Ultra Street Fighter IV brings five new characters in early 2014

Evo's over, but the next battle is coming in early 2014. Capcom revealed Ultra Street Fighter IV on Sunday, the next update to its flagship fighting game series which adds five new challengers, six new stages, and more balance changes than you can shake a riding crop at.


Speaking of riding crops, Ultra Street Fighter IV will see the first main series appearance of thug-turned-wrestling manager Poison. Her main client-the-giant Hugo, capoeira practitioner Elena, and special forces staff fighter Rolento will also appear. The final character--who will bring the roster up to 44 contenders--remains a secret for now.

Capcom will offer Ultra as a downloadable update for owners of Super Street Fighter IV and Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition for $15. It will also come on a standalone retail disc for $40, along with all currently available DLC costumes and unspecified future content.

    Pass. Capcom not really trying again. They could have just made Street fighter 5 but noooooo. Lets keep giving them the same bs and act like its new. Street fighter 4=62 bucks when new. Super street fighter 4= maybe 30? I cant remember but I thought to myself. Ok its cheaper with more ad ons. Good deal. Super street fighter 4 arcade edition= back up to 40 OR 50 BUCKS!!!!! But now its back to 40 again? Come on capcom.

    I was hoping they'd make the name longer... :(

    They were originally going to call it "Ultimate Ultra Street Fighter IV Championship Turbo X Alpha Hyper Deluxe Tournament Arcade Redux Edition", but changed their minds when they realised they'd need 2 discs just to print the name on... ;)

    I think when one mentions the "new" content for this game's update, it should be in quotes; four of the five new characters are ported from Street Fighter X Tekken as are all six of the "new" stages.

    I'm glad I never picked up Arcade Edition now. Hopefully this will be the last version of SF IV.

    How many Street Fighter IVs has this been now?
  • shawksta - July 15, 2013 11:21 a.m.

    Four, Ironically XD

    And it is still less than the numerous versions of Street Fighter 2. Street Fighter 2 had a whopping 10 versions although if I also count ports then that number grows. Also I love me some Poison so her being in the game is enough for me to get excited!

    Same here.

    Fuck yeah, Rolento! Can't wait to brush up on my SFIV... in six months or so...

    Nice GR quote at 0:27 :)
