Oni Steps Out Onto The Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition Stage

By Ishaan . April 7, 2011 . 11:59pm

Earlier today, a leaked trailer confirmed that Arcade Edition content would be making its way to the console versions of Super Street Fighter IV. The Arcade Edition adds four new playable characters: Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu and Oni.


While you’ve already seen the first three, Oni hasn’t been given a proper reveal so far. Today, however, Capcom updated the game’s official site in Japan with screenshots of the character:



Unlike Evil Ryu, all of whose stats (height, weight, fighting style and so on) are still available and largely unchanged from regular Ryu’s, Oni’s stats are entirely unknown, despite the fact. Capcom even list his height and weight as “unknown,” despite the fact that in the case of Akuma, these stats are known to an extent.


Meanwhile, the Super Street Fighter IV blog has low-res screenshots of Oni’s moves:

    rar, I watched some footage showing him off, I like how forward and aggressive his fight style is. Plus I’m a huge fan of air dashes, so even though I’m not that interested him Oni, I do like the looks of his fight style >w<'

    Super saiyan Akuma ftw. :D

  • Yui

    The fact that they haven’t included Oni in the 3DS version, or Evil Ryu, is depressing. I was playing an Oni-enabled arcade cabinet a while ago, why 3DS players don’t get the arcade edition benefits eludes me. =/

    Actually, I had opportunity to play Yun and Yang too. They’re fun. =D

  • Chow

    Looks like he has a fatality.

  • IceRomancer

    Can’t wait to see some of his alternate outfits! Long haired evil ryu looked pretty sweet!

    • I don’t usually buy alternate outfits, but Evil Ryu with the awesome hair is a definite purchase for me.

  • PrinceHeir

    looks badass :D

    can’t wait for the DLC :P

  • Guest

    They should put Asura in

  • Yu_TheKing

    Can’t wait for this one.

  • Wait, was Oni *just* added to SSFIV Arcade as an unlock/download, or is he a normal part of that version?

    I was playing this at an arcade on Wed and my friend chose Oni. He looked at all the move charts looking for him and couldn’t find him anywhere lol.

    I also didn’t realize Yang and Yun are both new… I happened to play as Yang and my friend was Yun one match haha.

    • Oni has been in SSFIV Arcade Edition from the beginning, technically, but he (and Evil Ryu) were timelocked characters, meaning you couldn’t play as them until a certain date, unless the arcade happened to hack the machine.

      • Thanks. That makes sense… I couldn’t remember seeing Oni in it before this week. :P
