Capcom Announces Ultra Street Fighter IV, Will Include New Characters And Stages

During EVO 2013, Capcom announced that Street Fighter IV will be receiving five new characters, new stages, and new balancing in the form of DLC. That DLC will turn the game into Ultra Street Fighter IV, or you can buy the Ultra version of the game at retail.

Ultra Street Fighter IV will be releasing early next year for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. You can buy the DLC for $14.99 to upgrade your copy of Street Fighter IV to the Ultra version of the game, or you can buy a new retail version of the game for $39.99, and it will include all of the DLC.

The announcement trailer for the sort of new game showcases four of the five new characters. You can check it out below.

  • They introduced new characters for Street Fighter 4 (rufus, el fuerte, abel, crimson viper, gouken, seth) and Super SF4 (juri, hakan, oni akuma), it would only make sense the 5th character is a new entry since its being kept such a secret.

    Also I was personally hoping for Alex, Mika, Oro or especially Sean to be introduced but I guess they wanted to get the SFxT characters in here that werent already in the SF4 series.
  • wish they would have been as kind about updating for those of us who purchased marvel vs capcom.

  • I am genuinely interested in knowing if another version of Street Fighter IV was necessary. Can a hardcore Fighting game fan give me the logistics justifying this?
  • sweeeet

  • It's funny to me that so many people are taking shots at Capcom for releasing new content for their game (which is years apart from their last content release and priced at the more than reasonable $15), yet so few seem to bat an eye at Call of Duty's 4 map packs a year. Seems as if their might be a double standard here.
  • $15 DLC? Man... I wish they offered it piecemeal. I kinda only want Rolento and Poison. This is good support for SFIV, to be honest (even though they're just SFxT characters, so they should be compatible with SFIV considering they're built on the same tech)... but I REALLY wish Capcom would move onto something new. Power Stone 3? Project Justice 2? It's time to establish - or re-establish - some other fighter as a major IP for you guys.

  • Not all the surprising, especially waiting till evo to pop this one out.  I highly enjoy SSFIV:AE and since I grabbed it for $6, I don't feel any animosity with them re-re-re-releasing the game again.

    Tempted as I like those characters, Hugo is just so damn weird it's hard to not love the oaf!

  • lol not a surprise XD ULTRA
  • thank god i don't play or like SF.

  • but still no onimusha capcom? why capcom why must you make me suffer and release games (looking forward to ducktales :) ) that i don't even play?

  • It's still craptacular.

  • Why don't they just make Street Fighter V? Capcom is starting to run out of name enhancers to confuse people with.
  • Give it a year, just wait for Ultra Super Street Fighter 4: First Strike Arcade Edition.

  • I almost spit my coffee out reading this. ANOTHER EDITION of a five year old game?

  • I'd get it if it was on Wii U. As it is, I'll pass. I already have SFIV for X360.
  • Wow.... The retail should only cost 20 bucks. I love Street Fighter but there is no way I'm buying this.

  • Does this only work with street fighter 4 or can you update with the alternate versions like super or arcade edition?
  • I think I will wait for the complete edition to pick this up.

  • So...... are they ever gonna make Street Fighter 5?
