Capcom has confirmed that Ultra Street Fighter IV will be initially available as a download upgrade for SFIV on June 3 for PS3 and on June 4 for 360. The release date for the physical version was also confirmed, with both versions hitting store shelves on August 5. The PC version will go live in both formats, as a full download and an upgrade, on August 8 via Steam. As a pre-order bonus, gamers who put down on any version will receive the 2014 Challengers Costume Pack, which will include alternate costumes for all five of the new characters: Gladiator Decapre, Jungle Elena, Medieval Hugo, Pirate Poison, and Wizard Rolento. The promo begins today.
Capcom revealed some new information about Ultra Street Fighter IV this past weekend during their Capcom Cup event in San Francisco. The last mystery character was not announced, unfortunately, but the good news is that two modes have been added: Online Training Mode and Team Battle Mode. The former will allow players to spar with one another online, while the latter will add 3v3 matches to online play. New screenshots were also released, showing more of the 44-character roster battling it out in some of the six new stages.
A handful of new screenshots has been released showcasing the latest additions to Ultra Street Fighter IV. Elena, Hugo, Poison, and Rolento re-join the fight after their stopover in Street Fighter X Tekken, and going by the screens, apparently proceed to demolish the old crew.
Capcom took the opportunity at last weekend’s fighting game tournament EVO 2013 to announce a new iteration of Street Fighter IV, Ultra Street Fighter IV. Set to launch early next year for 360, PC, and PS3, Ultra will add five new characters, including Elena, Hugo, Poison, and Rolento, as well as six new stages, new modes, and rebalanced gameplay. According to Capcom, the development team took direct fan feedback from Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition into account when they were making adjustments to the core engine.
