Ultra Street Fighter IV, the update to Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, will be coming to North American and European consoles soon after the game releases to Japanese arcades in April 2014. According to Capcom, the console release will hit before EVO 2014, the fighting game eSports event taking place July 11-13, 2014.

A post on the official Capcom Unity blog says that the longer than expected wait has to deal with integrating the 20,000 plus comments from fans about what to include in the game as well as honing new features such as Red Focus, Ultra Combo Double, and other new modes that will be introduced in the coming months.

Ultra Street Fighter IV will be available as an add-on for current owners of Super Street Fighter IV for $14.99 or as a standalone title for $39.99. Check out a few action shots below of some of the new characters announced for the update earlier this year.
