Yun and Yang punch into SSFIV Arcade

TGS 2010: Twin brothers finally officially confirmed as inclusions in arcade version of Super Street Fighter IV.

TOKYO--Super Street Fighter IV will soon hit arcades in Japan, with producer Yoshinori Ono long hinting that even more new characters would be introduced into the game's already beefy roster. That fact was all but confirmed in recent weeks, with keen-eyed Japanese gamers spotting SSFIV test units in certain locations in Japan, complete with two faces not seen in the home version of the fighting game.

The Lee brothers are coming to the arcade.

At the Togueki Super Battle Opera finals today (a large fighting game tournament held concurrently with the Tokyo Game Show), Ono finally confirmed what most had already surmised--that twin brothers Yun and Yang will indeed be included in the arcade roster. Ono made the announcement on the first day of Togueki and, as a surprise, even unveiled several arcade cabinets for attendees at the fighting finals to try out.

Yun and Yang first made their appearances in the Street Fighter III series and are brothers from Hong Kong. In the first version of Street Fighter III, Yun and Yang were essentially the same characters, but by 2nd Impact both had evolved into being unique fighters.

@lowkey254 I'm a fan of free DLC myself. Remember last-gen when stuff was free? That was awesome.

I'd like to see Rolento and Alex. For Alex, I think it'd a cool idea to have him perform a series of chained or linked Special/Super grapple moves similar to King of Tekken, Abel of SF4 somewhat, and Darun of SFEX3(his Meteor Combo a perfect example) where you have to execute a series of 2-5 command motions. I think that would be pretty cool to have in SSF4 and it would add a slight challenge as well as keep the damage output a little lower per grapple.

They better release them on the home consoles & better not release another SFIV 2 include them. If they do release another version of SFIV than im not getting it. The only way i'll buy another version of SFIV is if they make it 20 bucks max.

Agreed. A download should suffice for inclusion of additional Arcade characters for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Super Street Fighter IV owners.

All the characters they want! If they hit consoles, I hope it would be on DLC. If they launch another disc game I would be SO pissed!

I think they're gonna just release another version of the game.

I honestly LOVE how Capcom thinks that every PC gamer's a pirate. Real good marketing strategy. (Spoiler: I was being sarcastic)

@BlueFlameBat Tag edition? Uh..no. We are talking about a whole other game vs a port. This is a big difference. This is not about trusting capcom it is about trusting Ono.

What's the point of pulling Alex in the game? He'd play just like zangief.

Yeah Uesegi-Dono is onto them... They are just gonna repackage it as DLC. I HATE DLC! It should be free damnit

If they do make the characters from the arcade version DLC, can they at least include an update to watch the intros and endings for each character? That's the only thing I miss from SFIV.

unless they're planning a Championship Edition, damn them.

I doubt they did all that work on them for them to NOT be eventual DLC.

grey fox, just play your friends online. Save the replay. Problem solved. Danbal76, you are absolutely right, Alex needs to make a comeback in SSF4. I was pissed he didnt make it to 4 retail. But hell, there's always DLC. I do love the roster in SSF4 proper anyway.

I either want them to make these DLC characters for PS3, or make another 8 new characters and make like Ultra Street Fighter IV or something... yeah, that's right, i'm totally cool with Capcom triple dipping on this one; If the people who play UFC get a new game every year, why can't a fun fighting game have new entries every year. I think 10 new street fighter characters is easily worth $40, particularly if we get new backgrounds and THE ABILITY TO SAVE A LOCAL REPLAY!!! (that's the only SSFIV feature i think they dropped the ball on, why would i care about a replay against some dude across the country, when me and my friends can't save replays of our own epic battles! If they add facebook connectivity to it, i will totally be posting "match of the week", and normally i hate posting things on FB that out me as a geeky gamer... there's girls there!)

@Tso11 After Shinji Mikami said he would decapitate himself if Resident Evil 4 stopped being a GameCube exclusive, are you really going to take anything someone at CAPCOM says seriously? They might even make a tag edition.

Yun is a nice addition in terms of variety, but Yang feels a bit too similar to Fei Long/Yun. I would have used the second new character slot for someone different like Rolento. I don't see the point of more characters which are clones of existing character minus one unique move.

"In the first version of Street Fighter III, Yun and Yang were essentially the same characters" It's CHARACTER not characters.

I had a feeling that perhaps the PC(if there is one) and 3DS versions of Super Street Fighter IV will get all these new characters from the arcade versions. We'll just had to wait and see.

I think the Street Fighter IV universe has room for Alex and Hugo.

While I do respect Yun and Yang. I'd rather have Rainbow, Karen, Elena, or Rolento.

@ Enforcer246: Actual DLC is content not on the disk. What you're thinking of is technically still DLC, but it's a money-grab, where it IS on the disk. You can tell the difference by the file size: if a download is about 108 Kb, then it's an unlock key for something already on the disk.

Looks like Rolento is out of the question now.

Capcom, just put Karin in the game!!!

If I recall correctly, DLC is just unlocking things that are already in the game/on the disc. So unless Capcom planned to put these two in the game before it was completed, the console version won't be having Yun and Yang :(
