The lights are on
Announced earlier this earlier year, Ultra Street Fighter IV should be coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC shortly after its Japanese arcade debut in April.
Ultra Street Fighter IV is planned as add-on DLC for Street Fighter IV, but will also be sold as a separate retail release. Ultra will include five new characters, six new stages, new modes and features, and a number of balancing tweaks. According to Capcom Ultra Street Fighter IV is, "the most openly influenced version of [Street Fighter] yet." The team went though tens of thousands of comments on Street Fighter message boards in order to enact changes that the community will appreciate.
Capcom confirmed to CVG that the add-on/new release will come to North America and Europe after the games shows up in arcades in Japan in April, but before EVO 2014, which takes place in July.
For more on Ultra Street Fighter, check out the game's announcement trailer. Last we heard on the topic, Capcom has no plans to bring the game to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or the Wii U.

Good to hear the fans had a big influence on the DLC.
No thanks, I'll wait for the Super Ultra Mega Insane Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition
I haven't purchased any of the SF IV updates, just the original, so I may pick this up to try out all of the characters they've added.
I luv Street Fighter but c'mon Capcom....
I like Street Fighter but I will probably still be busy playing BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma
I'll wait for Ultimate Street Fighter 4 Alpha Turbo 4k Remix Final
BOOOOOO!!!!! Stop spaming Street Fighter Capcom!
If Pokemon can have a simultaneous release worldwide, with that much text, why can't Street Fighter? Seems crazy to me.
