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!

  1. I’m not sure why I am shocked to hear this news, but I definitely am. I remember joking around with friends when SF4 came out that there would eventually be a Super Street Fighter 4, but I didn’t honestly think Capcom would do that again. I should have known better.

    What’s next? Super Street Fighter 4 Turbo: Championship Edition!

  2. Capcom really kept it cool in terms of producing fully retail “updates” on their existing games, and I loved them for it.

    For years now, we’ve been given true sequels like “Marvel Vs. Capcom 2″, “SNK 2″, and other such gems: now I see they’re up to their old tricks again. When will it end?

  3. I wonder why only Capcom gets such a bad rep for this when Sega does it with Virtua Fighter, Namco does it with Tekken, and Arc System Works does it (a lot) with Guilty Gear, and now even BlazBlue. At least Capcom is going to sell the game for less than full retail price, which is more than I can say for other devs that do this.

    Personally, I appreciate this more, because now we’ll get one extremely excellent, expertly fine-tuned, masterfully crafted game as opposed to the Vs. series games, which are all pretty broken.

    That being said, I don’t like Street Fighter 4 very much, but I also didn’t like Guilty Gear XX either until GGXX Slash came out. So, here’s hoping this is the update that sells me on the game.

  5. I can’t say this news is leaving a good impression. It is going to ride heavily on what they mean exactly when they say “less than full retail price”. For all I know that could be 50 dollars. This could have been done easily with a few downloadable patches and DLC.

  6. If you read the gamespot article, you can see that they thought about it and tried it, but it wound up that they couldn’t.

    I fail to understand why Japanese developers disregard the simple concept of free update patches. Don’t want this game. Do want Street Fighter Third Impact on PSN/XBLA

    I read the article and know they said that but I remain skeptical. This isn’t replacing the game engine, or the graphics, so on so forth. It is gameplay tweaks and new characters. Bear in mind I don’t support this type of release when it is Tekken or Virtua Fighter either. Hopefully the price ends up being reasonable and it becomes a moot point.

  10. I definitely agree to that. As for a more subjective opinion, I just don’t care much either way; I didn’t like Street Fighter 4 very much, so I may give it a try if it’s $30 or cheaper. I definitely prefer this over “Oh well, let’s do Street Fighter 5″, though.

    Otherwise, I don’t really know why they can’t do a DLC update, but a lot of really important people at Capcom-Unity’s forums read and answer questions on the message board. If you really wanna know the truth for yourself, that’s a good place to start.

    Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but
    I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Taking a few
    minutes and actual effort to produce a great article…
    but what can I say… I put things off a lot and don’t seem to get
    nearly anything done.
