    Elena! My Waifu!!

    …..Dear God, I’m sorry for saying that…

    • TheFoolArcana

      You better be. She’s MY waifu.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Sal should feel even more sorry. He misspelled her name, lol.


        I died.

      • MasterSensei

        What you talking about? She’s MY waifu.

  • Emdimian


    • GhostNomad


      Or if you’re going by the stream chat’s comments during the reveal…. Evil [insert name of current SF character here].

      • MrKappa

        Ono said on Twitter that it won’t be Asura or bad box art MegaMan so you can at least count those two out.

        • Bobby Jennings

          lol sucks :/

        • GhostNomad

          Well damn. I guess now we wait for the reveal!

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Probably Haggar. They already have the model for him. If you notice, all of the characters they have introduced, they already had the models created for to be used in SFIV, but were canned (see: Rolento). Sometimes (okay, a lot of the time) Capcom can be so lazy :|

    • shogunknight

      Gotetsu, gohibiki or shenlong (dont know who the last two are)

    • bloodiOS

      Zero in Megaman’s suit.

  • PrinceHeir

    finally there’s a disc option that includes ALL Content, costumes, stages, and modes all in one disc!!

    getting this for sure next year!

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Well, the content they have for NOW anyway. Have fun buying another update later which includes even more content that could have been included in this version. They won’t be finished milking this dry for a loooooooooooong time.

      • HeatPhoenix

        We’re at Ultra Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition Ver. 2013 by now.

      • PrinceHeir

        i think this will definitely be the final update.

        there’s only soo much you can do in a 5 year old engine.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Ummm… You DO realize people still play the older Street Fighter titles competitively, right? Those are over 10 years old, some even older. Trust me, if they wanted to, they could stick with this engine until 2020 and people would continue to eat it up.

          • PrinceHeir

            huh? of course i do, because I also play these old games sometimes.

            that doesn’t mean they’ll update it forever.

            and while the old games are still competitive, strictly speaking, it’s only in japan were old games are still being played to the fullest.

            you won’t see any big tournaments like game acho and such featuring games like 3rd Strike, KOF 2002UM/98, etc.

            this will be the last update, but that doesn’t mean they’ll stop playing this game

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              I seriously doubt this is the last update, lol.

              • PrinceHeir

                they might rebalance it again, but i doubt another update with new characters and such

  • AnotheRay

    I was expecting Super Street Fighter IV’ Turbo Remix…

  • MasterSensei

    Poison, my waifu(?) [citation needed]

    • Gustavo Rosario

      Wasn’t Poison a guy?

    • KnifeAndFork

      has a weenerschnitzel

  • Rafael Martines

    The new stages are from SFxTK too like Cosmic Elevator for example

  • [Guillem ]

    The world greatest fighting game?? Don’t make me laught!

    • McPoo

      More like the worlds WORST fighting game, right?!

      • [Guillem ]

        Wait for Guilty gear X rd and we’ll se,…

        • McPoo

          Guilty gear X? More like Guilty Gear suX

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            Not as much as that comment suX.

            Another downvote for you, sir.

            • McPoo

              I was only joking, I’ve never played nor intend to play the series, so I accept those downvotes.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Don’t be salty cause GG is too hard for you ;w;

          Just stfu and stick with Clayfighter like a noob.

          • [Guillem ]

            There are a lot of fighting games this days,… Street fighter, Mortal kombat, blaz blue, tekken, Guilty gear,…

            I let you choose the game that you want to be beat on by me.

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari


              Okay, internet tough guy. If you can beat my dog, I’ll let you have a crack at me, but until then, you’re not worth my time, noob =3=

              • McPoo

                This has taken a turn for the immature :(

                It’s all futile anyway, everybody on this website knows that there are only three good fighting games in the history of the genre:

                – Tekken 3
                – Injustice: Gods Among Us
                – War of the Monsters

                Nothing else is needed.

                • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                  >talks about immaturity
                  >claims Injustice is one of the greatest fighting games of all time

                  • McPoo

                    >Calls someone “internet tough guy”
                    >”let you have a crack at me, but until then you’re not worth my time, noob”

                    I’m sure you did something similar in the posts that got deleted on that other article. Surely you see the irony here?

                    What’s wrong with Injustice though? I know it’s not as complex as these 2D fighters, but it’s a lot of fun.

                    And what’s your opinion on War of the Monsters? Would you sign my petition to bring it back?

                    EDIT: In fact, don’t worry about replying. I’ve gone far too off-topic here! Let’s just agree to be friends and never fight again. #love

                    I would appreciate you signing my WotM petition though.


                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      Wow, you really ARE new around here, lol.

                    • McPoo

                      Are we allowed off-topic? As you pointed out the other day, I’ve only been on here a few weeks.

                      I don’t want anything I’m typing to be misconstrued as trolling.

                      How do you feel about the WotM campaign?


    • SuperLuigi

      Obviously it is the most played and hyped. Look at EVO for example.

  • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

    So Cross-update from Street Fighter x Tekken xD!?

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Basically. They even brought over a stage from the game.

      How lazy can you be, Capcom?

      • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

        As lazy as it might seem, it is nice to see them at least. It’s more the price…talk about profitability off existing assets. It’s a smart move business wise but on the customer side of the fence it does seem a little…hmm well not in an entirely good light.

  • Wangsteriu

    Who realize the music inside the trailer sort of sound like megaman…..

  • Kobracon

    ULTRA SF4 huh? Creative. Its like one step above Supe-ooooooooh I see what you did there, Capcom….

  • bloodiOS

    Time to trade in the Super Arcade version.

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    Updated this post a bit.

    • Cry_Zero

      There’s a mistake under the headline. ElenA

  • Gilgamesh2025

    I’d rather have SFV! :I

  • Rafael Martines

    Wait? Jurassic Era Research Facility is confirmed as new stage? This stage is so far an Street Fighter background :

  • KnifeAndFork

    Who’s this unannounced character?? Toriko?

    • SuperLuigi

      It’s obviously luffy and goku fused. Guffy

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        I’m more fond of Loku, personally :P

        • SuperLuigi

          If they become Loku they haft to use the earings and stay perma fused. Chichi couldn’t possibly feed a stomic of those two combined x.x

  • SuperLuigi

    I hope the unannounced character is Batsu or Dimitri.

  • artemisthemp

    Fifth character is Onu and his attack is taking your money

  • Luccie85

    Street Fighter IV, Super Street Fighter IV, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition and now Ultra Street Fighter IV and bunch of DLC. Capcom know how to make money by milking their games with minimal effort.

    • SuperLuigi

      Sf 4 – $60.00
      SSF4 – $40.00
      AE DLC – $20.00
      Ultra DLC – $15.00
      So if you bought every version it has been $135.00

      Cod each year- $60.00
      4 dlc map packs – $60.00
      $120 for a game that lasts one year. Same almost goes to bf3.

      Now sf4 has been out for 5 years and STILL the main event at places like EVO. I think it’s not so bad of a price.

      I do agree the new characters are LAZY just porting from sf x tekken since they know people do not take it seriously. Hopefully the 5th character is exciting.

      • GhostNomad

        My only contribution here is that they do have the Season Passes for said DLC packs which usually knocks off, what, $10 off the total price?

        That, AND at least in BF3’s case, it’s been having some crazy sales (BF3+Premium for $60, then they had just Premium on sale for $25 at some point) compared to CoD where even the ‘old’ games which are only populated by hackers are still pretty damn expensive.

        • SuperLuigi

          Oh ya I know bf 3 is a good deal when they had that bf + premium deal. I enjoy all 3 games I listed earlier. I just wanted to write out that unless you buy every character skin on sf it’s not a bad deal for this huge of a game that is still THE fighting game this gen.

  • Nice Boat

    Mike Haggar, please! Mike Haggar!

  • Peacenutman

    I thought 2 years ago Capcom said Arcade Edition was the final one…?

    All those characters and stages are from SF X Tekken…should have been free if we own Super or Arcade Edition.

    • $3582264

      There is always room for more street fighter.

  • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

    So, they’re going to buff Juri now?

  • http://kizi-yepi.kizi2.com/ kiziyepi

    I hope that Ultra Street Fighter IV will be soon appear in Vietnam and Asian countries.

  • Ritsujun

    I bet SF5’s already in development for years for next-gen.
    And, SSF5 and a few other SSF5 editions have already been planned.
