Such a waste...instead of adding some interesting fighters they chose to add these ? They could add garuda - doctrine dark - skullomania - kairi - blair - darun etc...instead they add 3 females and a mentally retarded hulk. maybe poison and rolento r ok, the others r whatever.

Ultra Street Fighter IV looks good, can't wait to play it.

I hope a lot of people buy it cause it's a very good game, this is a very big update.

I would really like to see the new special moves they added to Ultra SF IV.

Anyone know how to buy this add on when it comes out ?.

Cool. Now can Capcom make Ryu not look like a big, goofy white guy?

He needs to look Japanese. He looks like Ken's actual brother.

I know I should be ashamed to admit this but I plan on double dipping on this game. I'll download USF4 for 15$ and I plan on buying the physical disc when its released 2 months later. My old SSF4 disc is pretty beat up.

I cant wait for this to hit store shelves, I bought SF4 when it came out and loved it, this just looks mind blowing to me since I havent played any of the updates.

No new Mega Man, but always room for new Streetfighters. But you'll buy it again and love it again yessir!

Not a big fan of Hugo's damage. He puts Zangief to shame.

That combo-to Ultra setup Hugo did was about sixty to sixty-five percent damage. That is ridiculous. I am guessing his movement speed is very slow to balance him as a Street Fighter character.

So I wonder how many of these characters are simply rip-off of other characters, except they look different and have some different moves?  Seems to be the trend in fighting games.

I dunno. Seems like all 5 of them are pretty cheap. Hugo's big combo dealt like 60% life bar and all those command grabs?. I hope the other fighters got boosted to match that kind of damage potential.

I kind of feel bad for Capcom. They killed off Mega Man and all but killed off Resident Evil. All they have is this and a new Phoenix Wright game coming out this year. I Hope they can get their act together soon.

@bunchanumbers  Hugo has always had that kind of damage. He's also always been terrible. He won't be a factor for high level play.

@rawkstar007  Why feel bad for them, they intentionally do this to themselves. Same as putting DLC on disc, they knew everyone hated it but they did it anyway. They need to do something for themselves to fix this, it's not an accidental folly that caused this downturn but they're own moronic choices. If they listened to the fans, they'd be reaping in the riches. Though I guess the past year wasn't as much of a loss as the past 2 years for them because of Monster Hunter 4 and some other crap they released.

@omegamarth @rickphoenixxx  I'm personally not that into Megaman but the franchise has many fans. Mighty No. 9 reached and surpassed its kickstarter goal pretty quickly.

Oh I know they did this to themselves. That's a given. But I don't begrudge them enough to not want them to try and return to original form.

I'm sort of biased though. My dad used to work for them wayyyyyyy back in the day at their Silicon Valley studio. We are talking the NES Bionic Commando and 1942 days.

I don't want them to fade to black as a result of their recent misguided decisions. I just hope they can learn from them.

Tell you what: go back and play every other fighting game that has been released this generation. Then, you can come back and ask that question. 


The beauty of Capcom fighters, especially MvC3 and SF4 is that they have lasting power...and plenty of it. GG, BB, P4A, MK9, Injustice, Tekken, KoF12/13, Skullgirls, DiveKick, VF, SC, Brawl (lol) and any other fighting game you can think of can't even compare. Say what you may about Capcom but their fighting games are the strongest in the market and arguably their most solid games this gen. They accomplish this by, yes, keeping things fresh and new. SF4 originally came out in 08 in arcades and it's still played and loved by many today. Incredibly popular games from all studios can't even pretend to contend with that. While I won't yet say that SF4 has stood the test of time, I will say that it has thoroughly throttled a majority of games this generation just in terms of how relevant it has stayed.

@demon-returns @BranKetraIt is a valid concern, but I was just assuring him that Street Fighter keeps things fresh and new. In fact, Street Fighter gets ripped off. 

Fun fact: After Capcom made Street Fighter II, their main rival SNK made the Art of Fighting. AoF's main character, Ryo Sakagazi, resembled Ryu in many ways. Akiman, co-designer of Street Fighter II, made Dan Hibiki (the well known joke character) as a joking way to retaliate.
