Capcom is at it again.
Super Street Fighter 4 added new characters to vanilla SF4, then SSF4: Arcade Edtion added some tweaks and a couple more characters, and now they announced a new update officially named Ultra Street Fighter 4.
Anyways, this new update will add new stages and 5 new characters to the mix. The people from Metro City; Poison, Hugo, Elena, and Rolento will be joining the gang, freshly copy-pasted from the travesty that was Street Fighter X Tekken. The fifth character is still a secret though, and Capcom says it’s “a character who has not appeared on a Street Fighter game ever”. With the Final Fight theme of the new characters, I’m betting it’s Mayor Haggar.
USF4 will also include balancing changes stemmed from fan feedback. I suppose that’s a good thing, eh?
Ultra Street Fighter 4 will be available “Early 2014” for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It’s $15 to update to it if you already have SSF4, and $40 to get a standalone copy.
