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


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:
