Yang And Yun Added To Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Version

Recommended Videos


Capcom are presently conducting location tests for Super Street Fighter IV in Japanese arcades, and Event Hubs report that Yang and Yun are now confirmed to be amongst the roster of newly-added characters to the game’s latest iteration.


There’s a lengthy report spanning numerous characters that you can read up on at Event Hubs, but here’s an excerpt or two. Keep in mind that this information comes from a location test and it’s possible (and likely) that some of these features may not make it into the final game:


  • All Yun’s specials from Third Strike are in the game. Including his Palm, Flip Grab, Dragon Kicks, Shoulder Attack, etc. Light Punch Palm is a fake, Medium and Hard change the distance the opponent flies away. This move has a really big hit box.

  • Yang’s command dash was in and crossed up like Ibuki’s in SSF4.

  • Seth’s Jumping Hard Punch is gone, the stretchy arm one copied from Dhalsim. Now Seth does something akin to Guile’s Crouching Hard Punch.


Unfortunately, you’re seemingly out of luck if you’re a Sakura player — no changes have been reported in either her case or Balrog’s thus far. Other new character additions are being kept under wraps for now as well.
