After the EVO 2013 panel, information got out that Super Street Fighter 4 and Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition will be getting new DLC featuring 5 new characters, 6 new stages, and an unknown amount of new costumes. Now we know this will be called Ultra Street Fighter 4. Capcom sure loves hyperboles don’t they? 4 of the 5 new fighters will include Hugo, Poison, Rolento, and Elana lifted directly from Street Fighter X Tekken, which should make rabid fans of that game elated.
Capcom-Unity has also added that there will be a disc-based version of the game, including “over $40 dollars of DLC” and “content to be discussed in the future,” all available for $39.99. The upgrade itself (DLC), if bought alone, will still cost you $14.99. In Japan, an arcade version of this will also be coming out.
The known 4 characters, along with what we’re being told is someone all-new to the Street Fighter universe, will be in the upgrade for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. This showing throws a monkey wrench into the rumor that Alex from Street Fighter 3 would be one of the fighters available as well as Asura or even Mega Man. The release date for this is slated for early 2014, but an exact date has yet to be announced. Check out the official reveal trailer below of Ultra Street Fighter 4. Those sure are some excited gamers…but umm…ULTRA!
