Super Street Fighter IV - Spring 2010

Announcement
http://www.gamespot.com/ps3/action/s...atures;title;1

First Impressions
http://tgs.gamespot.com/story/623062...opslot;thumb;1

Teaser (just Ryu/Ken fighting again in the art style like the previous teasers)

<embed id="mymovie" width="432" height="362" flashvars="playerMode=embedded&movieAspect=4.3&flavor=EmbeddedPlayerVersion&skin=http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/cne_flash/production/media_player/proteus/one/skins/gamespot.png&paramsURI=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.gamespot.com%2Fpages%2Fvideo_player%2Fxml.php%3Fid%3D6230546%26mode%3Demb edded%26width%3D432%26height%3D362%2F" wmode="transparent" allowscriptaccess="always" quality="high" name="mymovie" style="" src="http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/cne_flash/production/media_player/proteus/one/proteus2.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"/>

Where Street Fighter II had its Champion Edition and Street Fighter III received its 2nd Impact, Street Fighter IV will be succeeded by Super Street Fighter IV in spring of 2010. Capcom told GameSpot the stand-alone game will arrive on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with a handful of additions, including "about eight" returning or newly created characters, new Ultra Combos for the original Street Fighter IV cast, enhanced online play, balancing tweaks, and more.

Capcom also revealed two of the additions to the roster, T. Hawk and Juri. T. Hawk debuted in the arcades with Super Street Fighter II, and is one of only two characters in that game (Dee Jay being the other) not already included in the console and PC versions of Street Fighter IV.


Juri is about to give M. Bison (Vega in Japan) a good old fashioned boot to the head.
The other confirmed character, Juri, will be the first Korean world warrior in the series, and uses an array of Tae Kwon Do kicks to batter opponents into unconsciousness.

As a stand-alone game, Super Street Fighter IV won't be compatible online with its predecessor. However, Capcom has said that the game won't be a full-priced game, and the publisher plans to offer a special bonus to gamers who already own Street Fighter IV.




Super Street Fighter IV was announced today, and it looks like it's coming as a standalone game and not an addon or DLC for the original so I thought this deserves it's own thread. Personally, I thought SF4 was the best fighting game i've played in years and had a lot of fun, so while it sucks to have a new game to buy next year, it looks like they're adding a lot of new stuff and i'm glad to see it's supposedly going to be priced lower then $60.

Saw that one coming.... C'mon, it's Street Fighter! I think I'll just hold out for the inevitable "The Definitive Super Street Fighter IV Turbo X"....

I'm glad I only spent $20 on SFIV.

Re: Super Street Fighter IV - Spring 2010

^^^Yep, i'm pretty excited about this. I practice Tang Soo Do (a Korean martial art), so I'm really excited to see the Korean styles represented in SF. Also, i like that there is a bonus for owners of SFIV and it is going to be a budget title. That makes me much more likely to pick it up on release.

I wouldn't call it obsolete, as I'm sure the audience for the original will still be pretty big. This isn't coming out until the middle of next year, which is over a year since the console release of SFIV and closer to 2 years since the game was first released to arcades in Japan. About on par, given the history of SF2 and 3's multiple releases/revisions. At least the additions here seem more fully featured then the changes from SF2 to SF2 Champion Edition, Turbo, or Super

I bet this will still be at least $40 on release.

Not surprised. I would actually like some of the characters and play mechanics from third strike make it in the game.

I never really liked T-Hawk, so I hope he gets a fairly major redo before this release.

Re: Super Street Fighter IV - Spring 2010

I was going to pick up SFIV on the cheap after I get a PS3, but now I get to hold off until this comes out.

I hope they add Dee Jay as well, since he'd be the only character from the SFII era not in the game now. It would also be cool to see someone from SFIII make the cut, maybe Yun and Yang since they were in Chun-Li's video.

At some point I'd love to see them pull a Mortal Kombat Armageddon and make a game that has every character from the series so far.

Re: Super Street Fighter IV - Spring 2010

With 8 new fighters and a price less than $60? Fuck it, I'm there. Even though I'm done with SF4 now, I thought the game was amazing. It's probably my favorite fighting game ever. For $40 this will be a day one purchase for me. If they go much higher than that, I'll wait a bit, since SF4 really dropped in price fast.

Exactly. It's silly enough that SFIV takes place before SFIII. Now we're back to Capcom repackaging the same game over and over again. Although, in hindsight, this shouldn't be a surprise. They did the same thing with SFIII. Still, you'd think they'd just add this via DLC. If it's to be a $40 release, just charge $2 per character when you download them.

This. And for shits and giggles, make it a huge anthology of the whole story where you play starting from SF, through the Alpha series, and all the way to SFIII (you'd play SFIV first given the chronology). Finally, you play through SFV, if they finally got through all their iterations of SFIV.

Re: Super Street Fighter IV - Spring 2010

The official announcement makes mention of a special bonus for owners of the current iteration of SFIV. Hopefully, it is something good (DLC for the new characters? Free DLC?).

They've said they are adding far more then what's capable via DLC. Given 8 new characters, new ultra moves for everyone existing, and complete overhaul to the online system, it makes perfect sense to not have 2 or 3 GB downloadable content.

This link seems appropriate for the complaining

About the re-balancing, I really hope Sakura gets bumped up a little She's so fun to play, but you have to be really good to be effective with her.

I hope, beyond hope, that we don't have to unlock characters in Super.

I'm curious if there will be an additional discount for those who have already purchased regular SF4? I thought they mentioned something that there would be a special deal or incentive?

Re: Super Street Fighter IV - Spring 2010

I'm guessing there will some kind of bonus if you have an SFIV save on your system.
