Ultra Street Fighter IV Decapre Trailer

Capcom Reveals Fifth and Final New Character in Ultra Street Fighter IV

Here comes a new challenger! The long awaited and highly anticipated moment for Street Fighter fans has finally arrived, as Capcom has just unmasked the mysterious fifth and final new playable character in Ultra Street Fighter IV. 

Making her first brief appearance in a Street Fighter game as a non-playable character in Street Fighter Alpha 3, shown as one of M. Bison’s Dolls, Decapre now joins the fight! Although a partial mask hides a giant burn mark located on this Russian beauty’s face, challengers will be scarred by her quick and elusive scramble moves as well as her psycho power infused attacks, which allow her to share her pain with her opponents. Players can get their claws on Decapre and the rest of the all-star lineup in Ultra Street Fighter IV when the game begins releasing in June 2014.

In Ultra Street Fighter IV, Poison, Hugo, Elena, Rolento and Decapre join the fight, complete with new animations and their own unique play styles, bringing the final roster count to a massive 44 characters. Six new battle environments (including Pitstop 109, Cosmic Elevator, Half Pipe and more) provide a thrilling and colorful backdrop to the action. Direct fan feedback was gathered on all of Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition’s original 39 characters and core system mechanics in order to achieve the most balanced Street Fighter ever. In addition to the action-packed new content and the finely-tuned rebalanced gameplay, the new version features a host of new features and modes that are sure to test even the most well traveled world warrior.

Owners of Super Street Fighter IV or Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition will be able to download Ultra Street Fighter IV as a $14.99/EUR14.99 digital upgrade for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in early June 2014. The PC digital upgrade for $14.99/EUR14.99 and the PC full digital bundle for $29.99/EUR29.99 will both be available in August 2014. Also in August, PS3 and Xbox 360 users can purchase the retail versions of the game for $39.99/EUR39.99. PS3 users will also be able to download the full version of the game in August for $39.99/EUR39.99. Players who purchase the retail (PS3, Xbox 360) or full digital bundle (PS3, PC) will receive all previously released costumes for the series (a $40/EUR40 value), making this the definitive version of Street Fighter IV!

Ultra Street Fighter IV Edition Select, Let’s You Select Characters From Past Versions

In all the years that I’ve been playing through the SFIV series, I can’t count how many times discussions on “who the strongest character has been thus far” have come up among players both old and new. Seeing of how there was no actual way to measure whether Vanilla SFIV Sagat was stronger than AE Yun, players would engage in long theoretical discussions with no way to figure out who was right. Well, time to change that in Ultra SFIV!

That’s right! With Edition Select, players can now pick between the Vanilla SFIV, Super SFIV, Super SFIV AE, Super SFIV AE ver. 2012 and Ultra SFIV versions of their favorite character and create matches could only take place in our dreams. Just thinking about Daigo using SFIV Ryu vs. Justin Wong using SSFIV Rufus is getting me pretty hype. 

Besides seeing matches that were never before possible, I’m also extremely excited to see what players with present day knowledge will be able to find out with the older versions of the characters. I can only imagine how many times players have thought, “if I could go back in time with the knowledge I have now, I would do so much damage.” Until a time machine is invented, this will have to suffice.

So rejoice fellow warriors, it’s finally time to put the question of “who’s the strongest character” to rest.

New Modes Revealed for Ultra Street Fighter IV!

At the Capcom Cup fighting game event that took place in the San Francisco Bay Area today, Capcom revealed two new gameplay modes that will be included in Ultra Street Fighter IV for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. In addition to the action-packed new features and the finely-tuned rebalanced gameplay, the new version will give players the opportunity to practice online with their fellow fighters in an Online Training Mode. Additionally, Team Battle Mode will bring 3v3 matches online where players can team up with their favorite world warriors to battle it out for online supremacy.

In Ultra Street Fighter IV, Poison, Hugo, Elena, Rolento and a secret all-new playable character join the fight, complete with new animations and their own unique play styles, bringing the current roster count to a massive 44 characters. Six new battle environments (including Pitstop 109, Cosmic Elevator, Half Pipe and more) provide a thrilling and colorful backdrop to the action. Direct fan feedback was gathered on all of Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition’s original 39 characters and core system mechanics in order to achieve the most balanced Street Fighter ever.
