This winter, Capcom will release a free balance update patch to Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition. Today, they revealed a list of the changes they’ll be making to some of the game’s characters. Here’s what’s being done to Akuma, for instance:


We have made modifications taking into account the overall gameplay balance, as well as his potential for loop setups.

[Hyakki Gosho]: Move properties have been changed so that it is no longer an overhead. The move can now be blocked crouching.

[Goshoha](normal forward throw): Recovery has been increased by 2 frames.

As for character buffs,

[Demon Armageddon]: This move, which can be canceled into from Ashura Senku (teleport), has had its damaged increased to 421 points.


The list is split up into two posts. You can find Part 1 here and Part 2 here. Capcom will post the list of changes for the remaining characters tomorrow.
