Ultra Street Fighter IV (3)

“Oh, YOU.”

I’m not a fighting games guy, so forgive me for losing track of what exactly has gone on with all these editions of Street Fighter. Capcom knows how to milk a series, that’s for sure. This latest one is Ultra Street Fighter IV (not to be confused with Super Street Fighter IV or Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, obviously) and it’s due in early 2014.

What’s going to be different here? Well, this one has five additional characters in the form of Hugo, Poison, Elena, Rolento and somebody else who is being kept shadowy and mysterious for the time being. There are also six new battle environments. But what will probably end up being of most interest is the claim that Ultra Street Fighter IV is being developed with “direct fan feedback” on the characters and mechanics from Arcade Edition. If that’s true, then perhaps this really will be the “most balanced” edition yet.

“New modes and gameplay features” are being teased as well, but not to the extent that Capcom wants to actually describe what they are. If you already own Super Street Fighter IV or the Arcade Edition, you’ll be able to scale-up to the Ultra version for the reduced cost of $15.00 USD. Everyone else will be paying full price at $40.00 USD.

    I wonder if they’re doing this because of DOA 5 ultimate coming out and Project X Zone coming out (soon?). I think the balances should be patches rather than a $40 game bundled with what could have been DLC. Still, Relento in there is good.
