Ultra Street Fighter IV has six new stages and five more characters. Capcom revealed four of them – Rolento, Poison, Hugo, and Elena all of which were also in Street Fighter X Tekken. The fifth character will be brand new to the Street Fighter series. I thought it might be Asura since Capcom made a battle with the enraged hero and Ryu as DLC for Asura’s Wrath.
Asura is going to be angry because Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono ruled that out on Twitter. He also said the extra character is not Bad Box Art Mega Man either even though he was in Street Fighter X Tekken. I guess regular Mega Man is still in the running and if Mega Man EXE can be in an Onimusha fighting game it wouldn’t be that strange to have the Blue Bomber in Street Fighter.
Ultra Street Fighter IV will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Ono also tweeted that the game won’t be available on Wii U.
