posted on 07.13.13 at 04:13 PM EDT by (@salromano)
Five characters, six stages, and balance updates planned for $15 add-on.

Capcom is bringing five new fighters to Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2012. Rolento, Elena, Hugo, and Poison, as well as a fifth unannounced fighter never before seen in a Street Fighter game, are poised for the update, which will get an official name reveal and trailer tomorrow.

Additionally, the update will include balance fixes and six new stages. It will cost $15 as an add-on to the current game or $40 as a direct digital download for the whole game. Consumers who purchase the full digital release of the update will receive all previous costume add-ons free of charge.

The update will launch on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Release date details will be announced early next year.

Thanks, EventHubs, Shoryuken.

    why no Karin, Ingrid?

    it’s gonna be Alex

    and finally can we have a retail version that includes ALL characters on disc, costumes, colors, stages, music EVERYTHING on disc.

    come on now do it capcom!!!

      They stated that the “fifth unannounced fighter never before seen in a Street Fighter game” and I doubt Alex would fit in that criteria.

      • PrinceHeir

        ehh will see.

        tbh they should have added 8 more characters(like SSFIV)

        the other 4 would be Karin, Alex, Q,

        and the other 2 c an be other characters from other franchise.

        like Asura Wrath, Final Fight etc.

  • Panda
    • Solomon_Kano

      That would be sick.

  • LastBoss

    I would of killed for D.D, Rook, and the return of Retsu.

  • Charlottes Guardian

    I actually have a feeling it might be the girl from Remember Me. Thats a capcom game right? And didnt she do all her fighting hand to hand?

    • MasterSensei

      Remember Me is published by Capcom but they didn’t make the game it was DONTNOD Entertainment so I highly doubt it would be Nilin.

      • Charlottes Guardian

        Ahhhh okay!! So probably not her then, thanks for clearing that up.

        Good news to me too, as I’m hoping for Asura, it’d be pretty wicked.

  • fallen


    Note that all the other characters are from SF x Tekken… So it might actually end being that “Megaman”……..

    • shogunknight

      I refuse to accept that megaman

  • Chris Cruz

    This is new. I thought they were finished with this game.

  • b2j135

    3DS update!
    come the fuck on Capcom!

  • Elvick

    If they also ported it to PS Vita with this go around, I’d have some interest, but they won’t.

  • GhostNomad

    Ultimate Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition incoming!

    • TetsuyaHikari

      I think you mean:

      Ultimate Hyper EX Turbo Super Street Fighter IV Alpha Tournament Gold Arcade Edition 2014

      • TheFoolArcana

        This joke still hasn’t died?

        • Luna Kazemaru

          it will die when capcom stops doing this

          • MosquitoLemon

            Or more like when people actually understand the fighting game scene.

            • TetsuyaHikari

              Ummm… No. Just no, lol. Capcom is notorious for doing these “upgrade” editions for their games. It has absolutely nothing at all to do with understanding the fighting game scene.

              I understand the scene and I’ve understood it for a WHILE now. The reason this joke hasn’t died is because it’s about what we can expect from Capcom. Hell, they even do it with Sengoku Basara by releasing these “expansions” that include characters which SHOULD have already been included in the predecessor.

              May I also direct your attention towards Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3? Even the people in the fighting game community was pissed at this because it came out so soon after MVC3. Trust me, it has nothing to do with understanding the community.

              It has to do with understanding how Capcom operates. We’re going to be seeing a lot more updates to SSFIV before they finally bother releasing SSFV, so you better get used to the jokes.

                Moderator – Let’s just drop this and move on. Please.

            • Luna Kazemaru

              yes i’m sure you understand it well re-releases of the same game over and over have nothing to do with the FGC

              • TetsuyaHikari

                At least SOMEBODY gets it :3

  • Niyari

    Ingrid perhaps? I just hope it isn’t a joke character

    edit: nvm :(

  • TetsuyaHikari

    Rolento should have been included from the start. Just the fact that they still haven’t bothered to add Karin though is preposterous.

    Thumbs up for releasing this on physical media Capcom. DLC is something i am never going to pay money for ever.

  • shogunknight

    Someone ‘never’ in a street fighter series, probably someone from final fight, it may also be someone from the movies that was never included in the games, or someone from darkstalkers (morrigan). So my main guess: maki/haggar. If the new character is someone going to be in future street fighters, this would go to my secondary guess: sakuras friend hinata or a rival schools character, heck maybe strider hiryu

    • TetsuyaHikari

      Sakura’s friend? Hinata? Karin? Going to have to be more specific here.

      • shogunknight

        Sorry hinata, forgot her name

        • TetsuyaHikari

          I would like Hinata, but she’d be too much of a cookiecutter character, basically sharing 90% of Sakura’s moves (if Rival Schools is any indication), but I would be mad, lol. It would put us that much closer to getting a new Rival Schools game, but Capcom has yet to release one.

          • shogunknight

            I doubt they would ever release that game, if its even considered it may be in arcades only. but some guys are saying it may be Gotetsu (Gouken/akumas master), Gohibiki (i think fukos grandpa in SF:Generations) or a dude named Shen Long?

  • MasterSensei

    It would be REALLY COOL if Batsu was the new character never before seen in a Street Fighter game. I would really like it if they made a new Rival Schools for this gen or next gen (to compete with the revival of Killer Instinct they should bring it back)

    • MosquitoLemon

      Yeah, I was gonna say someone from Rival Schools.

  • GhostNomad

    LOL…. Anyone watching EVO2013, I was pretty close.

    Just announced, Ultra Street Fighter IV.

    • SuperLuigi

      Came here to post this lol. I’m hyped
