Street Fighter II: The World  exploded in to arcades in 1991, nearly defining the fighting game genre and becoming one of Capcom’s biggest franchises. It was followed up with Street Fighter II: Champion Edition which made the bosses playable, and the later with a faster version called Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting. That too was updated, and became Super Street Fighter, adding even more characters. That wasn’t even the last of them – not too long after, It was updated to become Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

Street Fighter games get a number of iterations within the same game. that’s just the way it goes. All of that should lessen your surprise that there’s another named version of the latest version of the game, Street Fighter IV. Already updated twice to Super Street Fighter and Super Street Fighter Arcade Edition (with a minor iteration after that), it’ll now be getting another revision; Ultra Street Fighter IV.

It’ll be headed to retail in early 2014 for $40 as a standalone purchase, or as a $15 DLC upgrade to the existing PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. It will includes six new stages, and all costume DLC released to date, plus it’ll add five new characters – Hugo, Rolento, Elena, Poison and a “mystery character” who has never been in Street Fighter before.

Any guesses?

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces. I am also the emperor of the backend

  • TiMsTeR1033

    I am prob gonna get shot down in flames, but I bought Street fighter 4 and I enjoyed it for a lil while, but became dull very quickly. For me I personally prefer Soul Calibur or Tekken to me they my fighting games of choice.

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      Tekken FTW!

    • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

      Love Tekken for one reason …… electric god wind fist!!!

      • TiMsTeR1033

        I loved playing with old Eddie and King! doing kings combos were badass and practically killed you one combo! and ofcourse Jin and cant remember his name Hitiachis I think lol love that guy! and ofcourse the electric god wind fist! I would love to challenge you in tekken lol

        • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

          Hwoarang, ling xiaoyu and lei wulong were my top characters. Then I learnt about EGWF with most of the Mishima Style fighters, Jin became my favorite! would love to challenge too!! :)

          • TiMsTeR1033

    • Hammersteyn

      Street Fighter is the best fighting game series in the history of fighting games. THE END.

      • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

        *Cough* ….. oh wait I meant KOF!!

        • TiMsTeR1033

          King of Fighters?

          • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

            Yeah freaking love KOF

          • TiMsTeR1033

            That was a GREAT fighting game series!

          • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

            was? is! :) KOF 13 is amazing

      • RinceWind

        What you said. Damn straight! Spinning bird kick!

      • TiMsTeR1033

        No way!! combos on tekken are way more extreme! Look Street fighter 4 was good but It got old fast!

        • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

          I actually like SF 4, the cancelling was sick as hell

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Look I liked it too, but Yeah i dunno it felt too easy in some ways and dull in other ways.

          • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

            Naa, not judging, if you don’t like it, cool :) I understand why you would feel so

        • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

          That just means you weren’t playing it online. Community is still very, very, very active.

          • RinceWind

            I recently tried playing online and the forums seemed totally empty…

    • Skyblue

      There is a special place in hell for non-SF-believers like you… ;-p

  • Concerned

    Enough said! ????

    • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

      KI looks cool though, not sure about it being F2P though

      • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

        It’s available retail as well.

        • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

          oh really? wow that’s awesome, was kind of like meh, one character and buy the rest

  • RinceWind

    Ohhhh, I can kick the seven shades of rage our of OVG in a newer, updated version! Nice!

  • Trevor Davies

    There is only one SF character worth playing: Guile.

    • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

      Go home and be a family man!!

      • RinceWind

        HAHAHAH! Agreed, man I hated him in the SF4 incarnation! Pulling off his moonkick was nearly impossible!

        • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

          lol Didn’t like him in 4 either….moonkick, lol would be cool if it was a moonwalk hybrid attack

          • RinceWind

            it would be easier getting Michael Jackson to do the moonwalk now than having to pull off Guile’s shit! hahaha

    • RinceWind

      Neva!

    • DieJason

      SONIC BOOM

      Not a fan to be honest, I prefer old vanilla Ryu and then Blanka for some fun.

    • Hammersteyn

      AKUMA!!!

    • Wtf101

      Yes… but which one???

      • Trevor Davies

        SF2 version. Which was a last one I played at the local cafe when I was still a snotneus. I may be a bit out of date heh.

      lol

        It looks like the damage that Microsoft has Done to the Bone is irreversible.

    • Concerned
      • http://lazygamer.net/ OVG

        It will be great I am sure but Microsoft has a HATE SNOWBALL that is just getting bigger and bigger thanks to their own shit PR.

        We will have to wait and see what 3rd party devs are going to do when the sales are compared across both consoles.

        Assassins creed is already going to have better water and graphics on the PS4 than the Bone. That is bad news for Microsoft.

        Those comparison sites are going to be in for a treat next gen.

        • Concerned

          I really hope MS gets it right at Gamescon or maybe as early as Comicon? Things can only get better!????. Judging by the pre orders I’m not too worried about 3rd party support at all really!

          Regarding AC, I read the article a bit different though: “For the most part, Guesdon stated that the game will feature more realistic plants and waves should gamers purchase it on next-generation consoles” Sounds like he was comparing PS4 version to current gen and addressing fears that the next gen version will have added content?

  • Tbone187

    SF is overrated imo…Part 2 was legendary but this new stuff, eish! Tekken anyday…

  • Harvey P. Cheesewinkle

    Capcom vs SNK 3 on the King of Fighters engine is all I care about seeing. Not a big fan of the new SF engine myself.
