The lights are on
Ultra Street Fighter IV, the upcoming Street Fighter IV upgrade, adds characters and lots of changes, and a new video from Capcom showcases many of them in detail.
You'll see the new Red Focus in action, which lets you absorb multiple hits and get out of tight spots, the ability to use both of a character's ultra combos in a round, changes to the way team battles work, and the new ability to practice and train online.
Ultra Street Fighter IV will be available as an add-on to Street Fighter IV for $14.99, and as a new retail release for $29.99 sometime in August. For more trailers and video from Ultra Street Fighter IV, head here.

All these changes seem solid. Honestly, I'm more excited about the unrevealed character, but that's mostly because this is still half a year out. I'm still working on my current game skills, I don't need to be worrying about changes down the road.
I'll also apologize if I came off as harsh in any of my responses, but so many people just see a new iteration of IV and freak out on Capcom. If you actually take a step back and look at the time frames, and the logical reasons for their decisions, it makes a lot of sense. I'll admit, before I got into the series, I thought it was a little silly too. But there's a reason why 'casual' players shouldn't be judging a hardcore fighting game. Once you get that fire burning to be the best, you'll understand.
This is a great deal in comparison to others I've seen in the past. Nonetheless, I'm really burnt out of Street Fighter, and I've been playing the franchise religiously. Cool to see Poison though. I hope they bring back another classic fighter for the Omega Orochi Collector's Anniversary Edition. I'd love to see R. Mika and Retsu.
they still havent made any new stages. or rebooted any from past streefighter games. like vegas cage from turbo.
I hope is for PS4.
