Capcom recently shared new information on Ultra Street Fighter IVs battle system, which includes the new “Ultra Combo Double” that allows you to use both Ultras for less damage. A Japanese arcade center, Kagoshima Amusement Liberty, also revealed that an arcade version will come out in April 2014.

 

The above tweet from the arcade center reveals that Ultra Street Fighter IV will begin operating in April of next year, and it will likely continue with the default price of 100 yen per-play.

 

Ultra Street Fighter IV will be available as a $15 upgrade to those who already own Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, and it will also be available as a standalone game for $40. The game is scheduled for release in early 2014 for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, so we may end up seeing either a close release between console and arcade versions of the latest update to the Street Fighter IV series.

    Hopefully the console version will be available BEFORE EVO.

    You know Capcom’s gonna release more SF4 in 2014… like, oh, I don’t know…

      Boy no one made that joke before

      • Richard N

        Everytime I see someone say some variant of this, I always wonder if the person has never seen a comment section before.

        If only it could die away like arrow to the knee and cake jokes already.

        • Just Tim

          It’s because people have become accustomed to seeing this move happen to the point it will never be lived down.

          Heck, I’m one of the many who thinks that Capcom blew it big-time when it didn’t do a Marvel Zombies DLC event for Halloween, considering it did one for April Fools’ with the MODOK event.

      Very clever. 0/10
      Also, I don’t know why people keep saying this. Are you saying this because you think it’s a bad idea? Honestly, all the updates to this game were worth the money. I’d rather buy an update than a whole new game each time. Even then, the whole new game includes all costume DLC and it’s lower than new retail prices. I think it’s an incredible price.

        My personal problem with this is that it’ll be almost 6 years in April with yearly releases of SFIV. Sure, we got SxT, TvC and MvC3 in the meantime but I feel like they could have been working on other fighting games. Rival Schools? Darkstalkers? New IP? I dunno. I personally want something new. Of course, this is great for competitive people but I can only support the same game for a while before moving on.
        I don’t think the other SF games had their life prolonged -this- much.

        Again, I can see why people like the yearly releases, but I feel it’s time to move on to new things.

        • Hinataharem

          it doesn’t help that they keep adding characters (not a bad thing, mind you), requiring even MORE balance updates.

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/Kevassa02 kevassa

            It sort of reminds me of SF3 the third strike.
            Hey lets nerf previously viable characters add Chun with deadly pokes.
            Poor poor Sean….

          • Hinataharem

            Oh jeez Third Strike Chun-Li. She was monstrous

      • Last Star

        Whatever floats your boat, man. Releasing an enhanced “tweak” and asking for $15 once is okay, releasing this 4 more times and expecting fans to pay an update fee almost every time is unacceptable. It’s called milking, which Capcom is well for. I’ve been a pretty loyal supporter of SF4 and have bought every game (not the digital update, physical copies) to date, but I’m extremely tired of Capcom’s tactic to knock more $ off fans.

        • CptPokerface

          You’d have more of a point if this were in fact, milking. It isnt.

          Many who play the game, both in and out of tournaments have been clamoring for another rebalance to keep things fresh.

          All fighting games go through this, see blazblue, dead or alive, or guilty gear, this was never a capcom specific practice.

  • Tonton Ramos

    I wonder why U/MVC3 didn’t have an arcade cabinet?

    • Yause

      From what I understand, the series never had any lasting popularity in Japan. With arcade releases, producers tend to zero in on the Japanese tournament scene.

  • anthony apduhan

    I hope this comes in the Philippines in Timezone.

  • Fidelis

    Wwasn’t there supposed to be some special new character? Siliconera was dropping hints about it and then just seem to have forgotten

    • Hunts Rattata

      Well, there hasn’t been anything else announced/leaked about the new character. Not much Sili can do about that.

    Hmmm… oh yeah, I do have Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition from PS PLUS so I’ll go for the $15 upgrade. But 17GB? I’ll go finish some games first before I download the chunky game.

  • leingod

    Man, they really should put this on the Vita. Dunno why, but I prefer my fighting games on portables.

  • Chee Yang

    So will I get all the DLC costumes if I do a $15 update or do I have to purchase the Stand-alone disc to get those contents?
