Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition Coming To Consoles As Downloadable Content


ConsoleTECH have managed to get their hands on a trailer, courtesy of an anonymous source, that confirms Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition as downloadable content for the console versions of Super Street Fighter IV.


If you haven’t been following the Arcade Edition, it adds four new characters to the playable roster: Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu and Oni (Akuma). The console release of Arcade Edition also brings balance changes over from the arcade.


Finally, the update will also enhance the Replay Channel feature by allowing you to send replay data to friends, and  follow other players and watch their replays. There’s now an Elite Channel option to view replays for players with a PP of 3,000 and above, too.


There are leaked trailers of the console Arcade Edition floating around on the Internet, but Capcom are taking them down as fast as they can. We’d expect to hear an official announcement of the Arcade Edition next week. So far, there’s been no word on a release date, price details, or a PC version of Super Street Fighter IV either.
