Ultra Street Fighter 4 launching June 2014

Capcom confirms Xbox 360 and PS3 launch window for fighting game; PC iteration arriving in August.

Ultra Street Fighter IV, an updated version of Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, will launch in "early" June 2014 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and in August for PC, Capcom announced today through its official blog.

The game will be available in early June as a $15 digital upgrade on Xbox 360 and PS3. The digital upgrade version for PC will follow in August for the same price.

Also in August, Capcom will release $40 retail bundles for Xbox 360 and PS3 that include all previously released costumes. On PC, the bundle with all the costumes will be available as a download in August for $30.

In the blog post, Capcom said it chose to release the game on stagger basis in 2014 so that Ultra Street Fighter IV could be featured in the Evolution 2014 tournament.

"Apologies to our PC fans, as we did want to release simultaneously, but this was the only way that we could ensure that Ultra Street Fighter IV would be included in the largest fighting game tournament in the world," the company said.

Capcom announced Ultra Street Fighter IV last summer during the Evolution Fighting Game Championships. It includes five new characters and six stages, among other features.

Anyone else tired of hearing about trolls and fanboys?

I don't think I want SFIV anymore. Too many unnecessary updates.

This overpriced update that nobody wanted should be 5$.

i wonder who the five will be. i skipped arcade edition. so, i'm waiting for a capcom fighter.

What's worse about this, is that Capcom is not bringing this to Wii U. How fucking lazy is Capcom? They're not spending much money developing this game, and they're worried about it not selling well? BULL. . .SHIT!

Basically, get Ultra f$#ked again sponsored by Capcom. Then, they will aim to f$#k you more when you buy it.

Give me Namcos version of TekkenxSF NamcoBandai makes better fighting games...at least when they were Sony Exclusives, hence Tekken 1-5DR!   Tekken 6 and Tag 2 suck, FTP Tekken Revolution is better than them both!  Its only when they share across 2 platforms that they suck.   Multiplatports suck.

I'll get it when it's 75% off on steam

Capcom no longer buying Street fighter 4  because every time I buy game with Edition you just have to resale another Edition of Street fighter 4

You rip me off last tome and what's next Street Fighter 4 for ps4 and xbox1 .

What's ironic about these fanboys is that they claim that they "love" Capcom, and yet, they support greedy decision making like this that's putting Capcom near bankruptcy.

Sorry Capcom but my fighting game needs are being beautifully fulfilled by the lag-less Killer Instinct. You want my money, then release an enhanced  Ultra SF4 on the X1 with cloud server hosting support....well you got my money from DR3, but just saying' if you want more...

I bought the last one ages ago....never played it.  I'll probably buy this one and never it play it too.

I wont buy into this franchise until it reaches "UBER EXTREME MEGA STREET FIGHTER ULTRA - BESERK EDITION" until then it's plainly not good enough.

I love Street Fighter as much as the next guy, but I have already bought this 3 times. Regular, Super, and AE on PC. I think I will pass on this until the next iteration on Xbone /PS4 or SF5. Time for Capcom to stop taxing us and just make new games. Even at a discount, this just isn't worth it.

If you aren't a fighting game fan you really shouldn't be bashing this game.  Fans of Street Fighter have been asking for an update and balance issues for SFIV so the game can stay current.  Capcom has taken an enormous amount of fan feedback when making Ultra Street Fighter IV.  This is truly a game fighting game fans want.

@pszone   you just don't understand.  Maybe fighting game fans are just blinded by the love of the genre.  But they don't see this as  a "rip off" at all.   These updates aren't  targeted or made for you.

@KnowsNoLimits As much as I want their games to be good since their recent titles have been meh, Monster Hunter 4 in Japan was and is still a huge success, so they are not going anywhere anytime soon.

Give Street Fighter to SquareEnix 1st...THEN DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

@analgrin  They constantly re-balance characters with nerfs or buffs. There will never be an end. especially if they keep adding new characters.  The name changes is just more interesting than a number system.

@cynicalundead I think they shouldn't release the game as a new game. call it DLC and no one would curse them. forza releases DLCs for $15 that add new cars, civilization releases DLCs for $10 that add new civs, why not call it a DLC that adds 5 new fighters and rebalancing?

MigGui

@Paulf001 they shouldn't call it a game, but a DLC or expansion pack. no one would bash them for that.

john_matrix8953

@Paulf001 If your a fanboy, then it's no surprise that you're lying about this overpriced, recycled update that nobody asked for. Also, it's bullshit like this is the reason why Capcom only has 152 million dollars in the bank. And it's also the reason why Capcom doesn't want to make SFV until 2018 because they want casuals to forget about all the bullshit that Capcom has done so Capcom can pull off the same bullshit again, and lying low self-esteem fanboys will lie about as usual. 

john_matrix8953
john_matrix8953

@Archangel2222 Crapcom wants to wait until 2018 for SFV because they want casuals to forget all the bullshit that they did with SFIV so they can do it again with SFV.

@gatsbythepig No. Ultra is definitely better than Super. Superman looks like a guy, but is goddamn strong. Ultraman is the size of Godzilla. You do the math. My argument is based on 100% fact and science, keep that in mind.

@Busta @pszone "These updates aren't targeted or made for you."


Excuse me? Adding completely new characters to a fighting game is pretty god damned important. This is made for everybody who bought Street Fighter 4, genius. People rightly feel ripped off because they released multiple versions of this almost 5 year old game already, and now they are releasing an update to a game that many thought was already finished with "upgrades."

inspectercoley

Yes, adding new characters is perfect for DLC. It is madness to buy the game 5 times just for a few new characters each time. Having constant new versions of the same thing only has the benefit that you can sell your old copy when you upgrade.

@john_matrix8953 @Paulf001@john_matrix8953 @Paulf001 Man, the guy isn't lying and the information is out there. Don't conform into being ignorant of stuff you don't know and bash for free because you have other issues with Capcom. Capcom is indeed a money grubbing piece of shit just like EA, that's true, and they have been showing that over and over again. But still, the fighting game community has been asking for updates and balance for a long time because we were tired of playing cheap Cammys and Fei Longs everywhere and were tired of watching everybody picking them on championships. I'm not a fanboy of Capcom because I know what kind of shit they did to Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen, for instance. But saying that we're happy to see an update (that's is pricey indeed) just because we're supposed fan-boys is just ignorant. Go to shoryuken or eventhubs and you'll find the people that are actually anxious to play Utra.

@meatz666 @gatsbythepig hah... I haven't heard or thought about Ultraman since the early eigties.  Just thinking about him grappling with Godzilla made me smile.


I hate losing arguments, but at least you made me laugh.


What's next?  Preternatural Street Fighter?

@pound-u @john_matrix8953


I think he's referring to the fact that 4 of the 5 "new" characters are copy-pasted (with some tweaks) from Street Fighter X Tekken.

@john_matrix8953 @pound-u Really, buddy? These characters weren't in Street Fighter 4. Now they are. They are new characters. And how do I sound like a Capcom fanboy here? You are grasping at straws.

john_matrix8953
john_matrix8953

@pound-u What "new characters"?  You Capcom fanboys are the laziest trolls out here. It's so fucking obvious that the characters and even stages from recycled, but you keep saying that's "it's new" for no good reason. 

john_matrix8953

@chavao666 @john_matrix8953 @Paulf001 Ah, the "I'm not a fanboy but I'm heavily defending the company so I won't look bias."


Again, you fanboys are the laziest trolls here. The FACT of the matter is that nobody was asking for this. The FGC has ALWAYS BEEN AGAINST DLC CHARACTERS you lying troll. And once again, you fanboys claim that the update isn't overpriced, and yet, you have to proof to back it, all you can say that it's not. 


"Go to shoryuken or eventhubs and you'll find the people that are actually anxious to play Utra."


Yeah, keep ignoring those facts, fanboy. Ignore the fact that the game already exist and there's nothing that can be done to cancel it. Also,you claim you're not a fanboy, but what are you doing in fanboy related sites? Oh yeah, weren't you fanboys defending the 12 locked characters in SFXT before finding out how shitty the mechanics are.
