Well, given the amount of leaked screenshots on the internet, the inevitable announcement of a new iteration of Street Fighter 4 was…well, inevitable. A few hours ago, Capcom’s US website finally made an official announcement for Super Street Fighter 4.
According to producer Yoshinori Ono, there will be a lot of changes made, based not only on their own experience, but fan feedback and suggestions from players themselves. Hit the jump to read about a few things you can expect from the newest SF4 iteration.
- The game will not be released as downloadable content; however, it sounds as if the disc will be released at a price lower than the usual MSRP.
- At least eight new characters planned; the number may change, but will it change to a higher or lower number? Among the planned new characters are, of course, T.Hawk and Juri, which we’ve already seen in leaked screenshots.
- Returning characters will have balance changes made to them, and may even receive new Ultra Combos.
- Online play will be improved from the original version’s netcode (Yes yes yes!)
Super Street Fighter 4 is expected to be released in Spring 2010. Stay tuned to Gamer Limit for more details!
