Capcom Changes SSFIV Boxart By Fan Request

Hardcore fans of a series can be an entitled bunch. When Capcom unveiled the original boxart for Super Street Fighter IV back in January, there was a mixed reaction from fans. Capcom is good to its loyal followers, and proved this by tweaking SSFIV's boxart.

Here's a side-by-side comparison with the old boxart on the left. As you can see, Chun-Li and newcomer Juri have swapped sides, and Cammy has been exchanged for returning b-squad pugilist Dudley. Another notable change is the overall color scheme. The muted white and gray has been livened up with a rich mix of gold and red (reminiscent of Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition's boxart).

Capcom appears to be quite pleased with the changes. Because Dudley has replaced Cammy, basically every generation of Street Fighter is represented by a character. Just like the changes made to the game itself, these boxart tweaks make the whole package prettier. Literally. Look for the game on shelves April 27.
