Ultra Street Fighter IV’s console release isn’t far off, and Capcom have illustrated the changes in balance to five more of the game’s characters. This time, we have Akuma, Abel, Dudley, Zangief and Dhalsim.







Ultra Street Fighter IV will be available in North America on June 3rd/4th for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. For details of the game’s release in Europe, as well as PC details, look here.

  • This reminds me… you know, if CC2 wants the Naruto Storm series to have a shot at EVO, they should consider doing things like this– addressing balancing issues among characters and fixing them appropriately, instead of throwing more flash and style with relatively small numbers of new characters in sequels that featurenew, potentially overpowering gameplay mechanics while fixing other issues with existing characters. (I can understand if that was a mouthful–I’m pretty sure this is a run-on lol)

    They would definitely get that shot then, in my opinion. I hope Storm Revolution can at least deliver on some changes.

    Changing Dhalsim’s move to kicks is dumb. Hey, Imma press kicks to do a punching move that has no kicks in it whatsoever. Seems legit.

    • Ninjagoon

      Its to avoid having them do the wrong move. You don’t want to use the wrong ultra when using double ultra. That could cost sim players the match.

      • Quan Chi

        they could have changed the dpad movements instead…

        they could have also just changed the inputs on wultra only like sf3 when you turn on multiple supers mode, all the inputs change (but they all made sense).

          You’re not getting the point -_-

    • Kaitsu

      Not the first time this has happened. I guess you’ve never played Third Strike or CvS…or even SF4 at all. Dan uses a kick button for his U2. And this is mostly to avoid accidentally doing the command because everything is all using a punch button.

  • Monterossa

    didn’t play this game in years until last week and it still imbalance. Yun and Yang are still overpowered and what the hell they did to Hakan? he jumps from the lowest tier to something that can kick everybody’s ass. Goken spammers and Guile spammers are still there, making ppl want to quit playing online.
