Set to release sometime in early 2014 for Xbox 360, Ps3 and Steam, Ultra Street Fighter IV is a standalone game and also DLC for Super Street Fighter IV and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition. USFIV will features 5 new characters, new modes, 6 new stages, rebalanced gameplay and options. To whet our appetites, Capcom has released 4 videos showing off 4 of the 5 new fighters’ super and ultra moves. Peep the videos below (with descriptions) for Rolento, Elena, Hugo and Poison. The fifth character has yet to be revealed.
“First up, Rolento. In Street Fighter x Tekken, we saw a rather cool new Super Art in Patriot Sweeper. Although this Super Art looked decent enough, it was not the two signature supers, “Grenade Sweeper” and “Take no Prisoners” that players have come to know and love. After looking at the four new characters’ Ultras and Supers, I honestly feel that Take no Prisoners is one of the coolest new Ultras amongst the new characters; if not one of the coolest Ultras period!”
“Poison’s up next. Giving her a Super and Ultra that match her persona were something that were taken into account during their creation. In SFxT, her Super Art, “Love Storm” set the bar in terms of what Poison’s all about, so anything less than that would be waste. In USFIV, she’s been given a new Ultra, which kicks anything else you may have seen out the park!”
“Next up is the last member of the Mad Gear Gang, Hugo. In Street Fighter III, Hugo’s Supers Hammer Mountain and Megaton Press were pretty cool and had their uses. I think that they have been more than faithfully introduced into Ultra, with Megaton Press easily being one of, if not the best Ultra in SF4.”
“Last but not definitely not least, the Capoeira queen, Elena herself. In SFxT she had one of her signature Street Fighter III Super Arts, Brave Dance, so it was a no brainer to add the two that were missing: Spinning Beat and Healing. I really feel that Healing exudes Elena’s love for the Earth and fun spirit across pretty nicely.”
Players will be able to pick up the standalone version* Ultra Street Fighter IV for $39.99, while those who already own either SSFIV or SSFIV: AE can purchase it as DLC for $14.99 sometime next year.
* Note the standalone version will also include all DLC costumes from previous Street Fighter IV titles.
