Further news from Capcom’s Evo 2013 panel: the company just announced that the next update to Street Fighter IV will include five new characters. Fan-favorites Rolento, Elena, Hugo, and Poison will be making their way to the title, as well as an unannounced fifth fighter that has never been seen in Street Fighter before.

These five new characters, as well as six new stages and a whole host of balance changes, will be heading to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC at a price of $15. Release date details will be announced early next year. (Correction: This update will be released in the early part of 2014.)

UPDATE – The update’s name (which will not be Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2013) and an official trailer will be revealed before tomorrow’s AE 2012 finals, so stay tuned!

UPDATE 2 – We recently uploaded a video of Capcom’s full announcement, which also included details about a few of the balance changes included in the game and more. Buying this update will net you all the previously released costume packs, and players of both Super Street Fighter IV and the updated Arcade Edition will be able to add this new content to their game.

In addition, you will receive special costumes designed by Udon for each new character if you preorder the game. It will also see a release on the NESiCAxLive arcade network in Japan, with a release date to be determined.

    HAGGAR?!

    • Thomas Manson

      One can only hope. Maybe it’ll be Roxy!

    • O. G. King Haggard

      People love Haggar, but it’d be pretty unhype to be adding four Final Fight characters into the game as the primary roster update, don’t you think?

      I’m thinking they must have had something preliminary up and running for a potential Dark Stalkers sequel that seems to have gotten canned, so maybe they made use of an early Morrigan model they had or something, as weird as that would be.

      • Marvin Choi

        It would be EXTRA hype to have all the Final Fight character in the game.

      • TheAverageGuyTAG

        At the same time, considering that Haggar’s the only character from the original Final Fight trio to not be in SF4, adding him could be quite awesome. He’s also my favorite VG character ever, so adding him would make this an insta-buy for me. I’m totally chill with four Final Fight characters and Elena. FF needs moah love, anyways.

      LET’S GO MAKI

      edit: Shit, forgot she was in Alpha 3 Upper

    • Thomas Manson

      Captain Sawada!

    • Unbeheld

      The wording was very careful. “Never been in a SF before” instead of “Brand new character”. So it’s definitely a character from a different Capcom franchise. Ideally It would be Morrigan, just so we can watch Chris G flip to her. Seriously, If Chris G wins a major with SF Morrigan, watching people lose their shit would be absolutely priceless.

    • ReoAyanami

      Yes, get hype for Jessica Haggar!

  • Wedge

    Woulda been crazy for that not to happen, since they showed the characters already could be ported to SF IV with mods. Good to see something useful comes out of SxT at last.

  • Nick Nobriga

    “unannounced fifth that has never been seen in Street Fighter before” hmmm does that mean it will be a another guest character from another series or an original character?

  • Mark Imakebeats Ford

    better be more than six stages…would have like to see oro and Q before poison and hugo smh.

  • umkp1

    wtf put Q in there

    • Mark Imakebeats Ford

      word

    • Steven Tyler Parry

      I keep saying the same thing but about Oro…. = ( … Not that he’d at all feel or play well in that engine.

      • Hey_Sim

        I think Oro should only be in the storyline from Third Strike onwards. I tgink putting him in AE will slightly ruin his ‘mysterious legend’ status.

        • Steven Tyler Parry

          I can agree with that.

    • a real ghost

      ono hates Q, sorry. ):

      • Shindoi Hayato

        Ono Hates gamers.

  • Alexis Monsivaiz

    Batsu plz.

  • RobertEspaillat

    I was hoping for new ultras but i be getting the update because of Poison and yes i hit that trap

    • bartonzok

      Are you just jokingly feeding that rumor, or is it actually true?

      • fallen

        Edit: The following information is wrong. Please see the video Peter links to.

        There is a ton of info on this out there, but here’s the short-hand:

        Her gender change was the result of localization to the US. She was an enemy in Final Fight and beating up on women in the US was apparently a bigger deal than it was in Japan. Nowadays, beating women in the US is OK (joke), and she’s the same character worldwide.

        That’s all there is to it. People often call her a transsexual (usually post-op), but that’s just what they want to believe (which is fine).

        • Peter Loney (ピーター)

          Poison was always trans, even in the original Japanese character designs. Check out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=3Lj-9npanOI

          • fallen

            WHAT

            ……..wow. That *would* have been incredibly progressive even nowadays were it not for how over-sexualized she is! Thanks for the link; sorry for the misinformation.

            Edit: Aside from how they play up her transsexualness as comical for her biggest role to date in SFxT… give me a break. That’s actually pretty damn hurtful to the trans community. It’s exactly analogous to how homosexuals were typically marginalized in fiction prior to their rights movement. Ah, society…… : (

          • Peter Loney (ピーター)

            Eh, I think it works out okay. She’s not sexualised for no reason, she’s sexualized because her character wants to flaunt it, which I think is acceptable. It’s not like bikini mail in this case, which is pretty out of character for most female characters that wear it.

            But some of the SFxT win quotes were hurtful. They got rid of the really bad ones after talks with some trans-groups prior to release (Ryu had a particularly bad one iirc, along with Chun), but some of them like Marduk’s are pretty good.

            Overall, she’s a strong willed character (after all, she is Hugo’s manager) who definitely isn’t portrayed as a joke, so I think her appearing more is a big step forward. Hopefully Capcom knows now after SFxT that people do like her, and she can be an SF mainstay.

          • Thomas Manson

            I don’t like how they are advocating transsexuals in Street Fighter while cross-dressers get marginalized. That is hurtful.

          • onReload

            Like whom?

          • fallen

            Give it time. People don’t understand yet, due to cultural conditioning. I think trans-spectrum people are going to be the next civil rights movement. In a perfect future, mocking trans people will be comparable directly to “blackface.” We can hope!

        • hadoolket

          the actual issue wasn’t raised until the snes localization. there was no such press release before then, which means poison’s sex state was publically undefined between the arcade release and snes (USA) release, where she was simply acknowledged by the public as a generic female enemy

          and unless you were some kind of insider for capcom (ie you were just a regular joe schmoe), you wouldn’t have known the difference and you’d still have thought of poison as a female

          the only time akira yasuda even brought up the idea of poison being a shemale was when american playtesters reviewing content for the snes port told them to remove the enemy, which then we still got billy and sid in place of roxy and poison anyway because poison was still construable as female just by her looks. we had the same thing happen to final fight 2, but nothing came up about transgender because by then, nobody really cared to preserve elements of the original japanese game

          this is even disregarding any liner notes akiman provided in his pre-sprite sketch details, because this wasn’t made publically available until after the fact, and it can’t be proven that it wasn’t retroactively altered

  • GO4PRO

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • AriesWarlock

    Let me guess: Hyper Street Fighter IV?

    • Exy

      Ultimate Street Fighter IV

      • shion16

        yep that sounds better
        or Super Street Fighter 4 Turbo

        • Exy

          It’s fast enough as it is.

          • shion16

            i know, but it sounds cool xD

          • O. G. King Haggard

            SFIV isn’t very fast. Not that I think it’s slow. Maybe they’ll call it Ultra Street Fighter IV. Keep things simple. The name was really getting out of hand, so whatever it is, I’m glad they’re changing it.

          • Exy

            Turbo was called that because people wanted the game to be faster than the speed settings the previous updates offered. This was before speeds and input timings and stuff were regulated to the level they are now.

          • shion16

            congratulations

      • Cacaouettes

        Rainbow Edition

        • Thomas Manson

      Even if SFIV was boring, your trolling is worse. Try harder.

      • Andy Tarbell

        you mad

      • MuhhPhukka

        so my trolling is worse then boring? gtfo faggot.

        • O. G. King Haggard

          Yes, it’s worse than boring. Can you read? 🙂

  • ReddChief78

    They just added the characters from SFxT so no surprise there can’t wait to see this new character

  • Kenneth Richardson

    all of the newcomers are from SFXT? Hopefully the new fifth fighter will be someone truly unexpected (Karin pls)

    • GO4PRO

      “that has never been seen in Street Fighter before”

      Karin is dead, Capcom is deaf, give up. It’s probably Asura or some shit.

      • Kenneth Richardson

        Oh wow, I missed that part. So a completely original new fighter, like Yuri in Super? This could be pretty interesting.

        • Hey_Sim

          Are you beginning to feel the hype now?

        • Baleoce

          haggar seems to be the popular guess. finish off the final fight set. would make sense.

          • O. G. King Haggard

            It would also be pretty boring. They may as well call it Street Fighter IV: Final Fight Edition if that’s the case.

          • Guilt Gear

            Haggar, Hugo, Zangief, Hakkan and T. Hawk in the same single game! AWESOME =/

        • Oleksiy Popkov

          sorry to nitpick, but it’s Juri.
          and I wouldn’t be too hung up on a “completely original new fighter”.

          just sayin’

      • Anjon

        It’s Mega Man.

        • Thomas Manson

          Box art Mega Man?

        • Oleksiy Popkov

          oh sweet lord no… wait, unless you mean ACTUAL Mega Man. Hell yeah, I’d love to see X!
          Damnit see what you’ve done? You actually made me care about this

      • Awsumpossum12345

        I now feel confident that it is indeed Asura. Why didn’t I think of that…

  • Logan Via

    So Rolento was added to the roster of viable characters while everyone else will be as relevant as Yang or Cody… Awesome. Wake me up when there’s something to give a shit about…

    • O. G. King Haggard

      Nah, just keep sleeping, bro. More fun without you.

    • Bryan Stroup

      I doubt it could be any more difficult to have a worse pick for
      additional characters. Hopefully the “new” character is actually
      interesting. Rolento is the only one of the four that were announced
      that doesn’t have some C tier character design, and he will
      probably play similar to an Ibuki/Vega hybrid in this.

  • No.1 Important

    Was hoping Alex would finally show up, but this is still pretty great. Can’t wait to see what they’ve done with them.

  • Nicholas Poland

    Let the tired Capcom hate commence.

    • Thomas Manson

      “wut da fukkk stupid ca$ssshcom u gay”

      …Something like that?

      • Nicholas Poland

        Yeah, that’s about what I’m expecting.

        • O. G. King Haggard

          DUR SKULLGIRLS IS BETTER THAN CRAPCUM

          DEY GIVE FREE CHARACTERS CRAPCUM MAK YOU PAY

          WUT IS KICKSTURTER???

          • Thomas Manson

            You better watch what you say about Skullgirls. Mike Z might come after you.

          • Andy Tarbell

            uhhh or not.

          • OrehRatiug

            Except I haven’t seen anyone use Skullgirls as a reference point but alright.

  • Hey_Sim

    A new fighter in the game?! PogChamp

  • Redsumo

    I’m thinking Asura.

    • Alant

      Watch it be something like Evil Ken

    • I agree. I think it’s Asura because all the characters are ports. So some work has been done already. We have seen Asura in SF4 format. Makes sense. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wks1GrqTFo

      What doesn’t make sense is why this is coming out in early 2014? After next gen consoles drop. Perhaps it’s a bridge to SF5…

  • Steve DeBellis

    Early NEXT year? 🙁

    • Raoni Marques

      That sucks balls man…

      Curious about who that character is, though.

  • NWharry

    no Alex? disappoint

  • Nicholas Poland

    This makes me very happy. The haters can go find something else to complain about.

    • O. G. King Haggard

      People who would complain about this update don’t play the game anyway. Nobody who plays the game even semi-seriously is going to bitch about more characters, even if they’re “ports.”

  • RobertEspaillat

    Super Street Fighter 4 Remix

  • Franco

    What about Alex from Third Strike? Been waiting since Street Fight 4 was released. Also, what about new characters for umvc3? I suggest Juggernaut for Marvel’s side, and Son Son for Capcom. And maybe make Thor’s normals faster and safer since he already lacks the ability to combo from any hit like the top 5 characters in the game. Thanks.

  • CGMNaniwaTiger

    I think Capcom should also use this update to port the game over to next gen systems ie: PS4, Xbox1, and WiiU. That ensures SFIV continues on into the next generation of consoles.

  • Jahmere Durham

    YES! YES!

  • Jahmere Durham

    Poison is now my main.

  • mynus

    No Karin no buy.

    • Quan Chi

      Damnit I wish it was. Too bad it was just SFxT ports.

      • O. G. King Haggard

        When these characters first hit SFxT, everyone asked Capcom to put them into SFIV. Now that they’re being put into SFIV, people are complaining about that… I guess there’s no pleasing SF fans.

        • OrehRatiug

          Because I’m sure it is the same people complaining, not like there are multiple facets to a community or anything.

        • Oleksiy Popkov

          hey! don’t forget us that still want more SFIV characters in SFxT!

    • LittleScumbag

      Noone cares about you buddy !!! Go back and play LOL

  • H_Magnus

    “as well as an unannounced fifth fighter that has never been seen in Street Fighter before”

    MAYOR OF EARTH!

  • wonder if this is going to PC…at the same time as console at least..doubt it but one can hope.

    • O. G. King Haggard

      It is coming to PC.

  • Shiki Orochinagi

    SFxT characters no surpprises here, move on.

  • Kaihedgie

    Aww, no Twelve? >:

    Oh well, I’m lookin’ forward to this nonetheless. Especially the newcomer

    • Mathew Gibbons

      Though if they’re still willing to make updates after this we may get another batch of SF3 and Alpha characters.

  • Player1

    Evil Ken…? Capcom, surprise me…

  • Lazy way to keep people off the scent of a proper SFV. I would rather a free patch, no characters and SFV announcement then SFxT’s lazy additions retro-ported.

  • strida solidus

    super street fighter 4 recycled edition

  • Quan Chi

    It better not be Belgar or Haggar! I wants my Karin and Mika!

  • choE

    I hope it’s an completely original character. Personally, if they bring someone in from another franchise it won’t feel strictly SF. I mean there’s Cody and Guy but they’ve already been established as existing in the SF world as well as being in the Alpha series.

  • Michael Maman

    I’m only somewhat upset by this because it shows that Capcom can’t work outside of it’s comfort zone and are really playing a safe game. Instead of adding completely brand new characters, we’re getting copy-n-paste characters from a semi-SSF4 clone which is Street Fighter x Tekken. I seriously hope that the new 6 stages aren’t also from Street Fighter x Tekken aswell.

    Like people said, the closest assumption i can go with this is “Asura” from Asura’s wrath because they have performed DLC in his game in which he was fighting in a Street Fighter 4 style.

    • Kaihedgie

      Anytime Capcom, or any big name company for that matter tries to work out of its comfort zone, people get mad. Really quickly. I still remember the reveal for Street Fighter IV where many people collectively lost their marbles because it wasn’t sprite-based.

      • Guest

        True but whenever they are in their comfort zone: They play such a minimal game to a point where it frustrates people more than they feel when they’re out of their comfort zone.

        Remember when they were in their comfort zone and started to do the whole “Disc-Locked DLC” and “PS3 exclusivity” controversy for Street Fighter X Tekken? They played their comfort zone to their strengths and kept continuing onto it into future games until up to Resident Evil 6, they stepped outside and went “Hey! This isn’t a good idea. The fans feel like they’re being ripped off. We need to try and step out of our comfort zone”.

        I guarantee to you that most fans were happy as hell when the whole “Disc-Locked DLC” problem was starting to get resolved.

        • Kaihedgie

          Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t the “on-disc DLC” on for only MVC3 and SFXT? It’s been a while since I looked at anything regarding RE5 and I don’t play any of the DR games, but if it’s only those two-three games, then how is it their comfort zone? Tatsunoko Vs Capcom featured no DLC whatsoever.

          If we’re talking about fighting games only, this really can’t be considered a comfort zone. They experimented with all of two games.

    • mc_fine

      from a company point of view they are trying to get the most return on with the lowest amount of cost. Take assets that are already available in the characters from SFxT and add to the mix. Its basically just some re-balancing and plugging already available characters.

      If they tried for new you would be dealing with new art, design, etc that costs a lot more money with a bigger team working full time.

    • O. G. King Haggard

      You mean like how SFIII had a brand-new cast, and wasn’t even going to include Ryu and Ken if not for people wanting them put in? Yeah, people really responded to 3rd Strike positively when it first hit NA…

    • O. G. King Haggard

      The fact that the models and animations will be largely the same is nothing compared to the system differences, added ultras/moves that will be required, combo changes (no juggling/tagging in SFIV, remember)…

  • Jared Bernardi

    “Release date details will be announced early next year.”

    Seriously Capcom? We’ve all been content with AE for over a year now and you decide to drop this bomb on us and you won’t even give us a release date for it until next year? Screw you jerks.

    • Michael Maman

      Wait… Next year?

      But aren’t these characters already from another game that plays in a similar fashion to Super Street Fighter 4? 0_o

    • Hey_Sim

      Shut the hell up and ride on a Pony over a Rainbow, bitch!

  • Rohan Mayers

    Sub-zero is the fifth character

    • ScytheX3

      damn, u found the leak too? i just saw the subzero sf4 gameplay, looks pretty low tier though =(

    • Hey_Sim

      I hope that’s a joke.

  • The Puff Man

    So they recycled characters from SxT. Boring.

  • Barlton Canks

    • shion16

      nah, Injustice likes that kind of bullsh**

  • Quan Chi

    How much does SSF4AE cost with all this now? Over $200 @.@?

    • Brandonmkii

      If they do a physical run like they did with the last AE version, $15 dollars for everything. If not, $15, plus whatever the cost of a copy of AE is worth.

    • Nicholas Poland

      That we paid over the course of how many years?

      • Quan Chi

        And how much did you pay for KOFMI2 (which still has more content than this game) ? 😛

    • shion16

      U prefer to be playing Street Fighter 4 with no updates at all?

      I like Juri and all the new characters.

      • Quan Chi

        I prefer not paying over 200 bucks for one game

        • shion16

          200 bucks?
          even if you buy the 3 versions on day one it wouldnt be 200 bucks.
          Youre buying your games at chuck e cheese?

          • Quan Chi

            SF4. SF4 DLC. SSF4. SSF4 DLC. SSF4AE.SSF4AE DLC. This SF4.

            How much is that? Even if you don’t add vanilla how much is it?

          • shion16

            It depends………if you bought the SSF4 DLC, why are you buying the arcade edition ?
            And SSF4 AE DLC was free.

          • Quan Chi

            I’m on pc, getting them on a console that i knew was gonna become inferior was pointless. 39 for SF4 + 18 approx for dlc. Same for SSF4AE; that would be 114. The console prices were higher and the consoles had another iteration. And if you got the collector’s edition (about 160) that came afterwards when you already bought the games previously, it’s even more.

          • shion16

            Ok……stilll not 200 bucks.

          • Quan Chi

            don’t start…

          • Pooh Hardy

            hes referring to the costumes

          • shion16

            The costumes are an option, i only bought 3 costumes.
            Its just an option to buy them, like skins in League of Legend.
            Its doesnt count.

          • LittleScumbag

            noone forces you to pay gor DLC costumes,,,so your argument is invalid …you can even play the game with us if you own only SSF4 without the AE DLC … you see how invalid is your argument?????

    • ReoAyanami

      It will cost $40. If you already owned it, how many hours have you spend on it already? Over 200 hours?

  • Kyouya

    I’m going to call it right here. It’s golng to be Wesker.

    • RazingPhoenix

      That would be pretty funny actually.

  • Keaneth Jefferson

    Next year?? Kind of a troll move don’t you think capcom?

    • Kaihedgie

      The time is probably going to be spent on the new character (assuming it’s not revealed in the trailer) as well as having to rebalance what is the largest roster in a single Street Fighter game to date (39 not counting the newcomers).

      • Dynami

        And the new stages, and potential system changes (given how large this update is, I wouldn’t be surprised to see things that Ono said he’d like to integrate into the game, like online training mode).

      • Keaneth Jefferson

        I understand that 100%. But no realease for the next gen consoles??

  • realrockyboy

    Phoenix Wright from Ace Attorney….or Megaman

  • shibi21

    When are they going to bring back Alex?

  • BoozerX

    HYPER EVIL RYU INCOMING !!!

  • theSN3S

    Boring. The 5th character better be someone worth while. I want to expect Batsu from RS/PJ, but that’s just me.

  • syroco

    Where the HELL is Alex?!?

    • Hey_Sim

      He’s in SF3. The series where he gets introduced and is in the game for a reason.

      • gigantor21

        Because the story in these games is so tightly written and consistent that all the characters added in Super and AE fit neatly right? Just like the SFxT holdovers will? LOL

      • syroco

        That’s like saying Ryu should have stayed in SF1 only.

  • BARDOCK7

    Can’t wait for it!!! (>0<)/

  • Corey

    wow…. really upset with the 4 characters coming. i wont use any of them… wish they gave us a better selection. do people want them or are there other choices you want?

    i was really excited when they said they were updating it because i was 90% sre they would include characters. just wish they had different ones. i really hops this 5th character is amazing.

    still need a Umvc3 update. that game needs it more than any.

  • Rafael Martines

    The Fifth Character is Fat Mega Man XD

  • Rahavic

    Scorpion is 5th character. #MVGame

    I’m excited, I’ll probably pick up an upgrade on PC when available and get the digital version on PS3.

    • dubaloseven

      Sounds good.

    • Hey_Sim

      Seems legit.

    • gigantor21

      If you insist.

  • Mike Jones

    5th character = DLCMAN

  • PJ

    I’m 100% convinced it’s gotta be Asura otherwise they wouldn’t have made note of it possibly being from “another capcom franchise.” This is capcom we’re talking about and like half his game assets are already done on the engine from the game’s own dlc.
    it’d be almost ignorant to think otherwise.

    • Corey

      i would flip my **** if it was asura but if more fitted to marvel games… i just hope if we ever get another marvel game he will be included. i loved the game.

    • PJ

      Well first 4 characters are copy/paste assests from SFxT and now they’ve confirmed the 6 “new” stages are as well. I think this pretty much confirms the theory.

  • Hey_Sim

    5th character: Ono.

    • dubaloseven

      True beauty.

  • 5th character is Mike Hagger!

  • EA575

    Hyper Street Fighter IV. Calling it right now.

    • Corey

      because of the ‘leaked’ poster?

      • EA575

        Just by SF2’s update naming.

  • ScytheX3

    personally think Super Street Fighter IV: Final Strike sounds pretty decent, and wouldnt be too surprised to hear it was called just that.

  • leingod

    Put it on the Vita too! 😀

    • I’d buy a Vita

      • leingod

        It’s actually pretty good for fighting games… the pad is comfortable and responsive.

  • Dynami

    Hyper? Nahhh, it’d be Ultra if anything like that.

  • I need SFlV Sagat, those nerfs were premature.

  • Quan Chi

    Super Street Fighter IV Volt Version 2013 3D Arcade Edition 2.5

  • samirerre

    so let me guess,the whole reason behind sfxt was to steam up for another update for the sf4 sereis?.hmmm…..thats smart.

    • bartonzok

      Nah, At this point, I think there just trying to make good use of a bad apple. If it was only used to test the waters, They would have never made an update to the game.

  • Vincent Villagrana

    Shen long! you heard it here first.

    on another note, as hype as it would have been to see the likes of Q,Oro, urien, birdie Rmika, karin ect in the game….. the reality is that capcom cut the costs seeing as they already had the assets for these guys straight from X tekken, so implementing them into sf4 was likely effortless, with the only real work to be done was frame data and properties ect..

    Im excited regardless but on a personal note, had they put Q or birdie in the game i would have lost my shit 🙂

  • gigantor21

    Kind of hard to be excited about these additions when so much of SFxT was built around recycled SF4 assets to begin with. It’s like the snake eating it’s own tail, especially when we’ve seen modders put Rolento into AE already. It’s SFA3 MAX all over again.

    Oh well. Hopefully they’ll be integrated well, and the mystery character is hype-worthy.

  • bartonzok

    This probably won’t happen, but I hope its Batsu. From what I can tell, Batsu isn’t technically Street Fighter

    • samael789

      But Batsu was in Street Fighter Online for PC.

    • leingod

      Dude, I miss Rival Schools.

  • @simain215

    haggar?

  • Guest
    • Timothy Ian McMillan

      fake, those are king’s animations from SFXT.

    • Tenmakujinkyaku

      He said the 5th character has never been in a street fighter game before, really?

  • b2j135
  • GeeCee

    Asura? Since Capcom done a splash cross over in Asura’s Wrath, it wouldn’t be too far out there.

  • Bryan Stroup

    I doubt it could be any more difficult to have a worse pick for additional characters. Hopefully the “new” character is actually interesting. Rolento is the only one of the four that were announced that doesn’t look like some C tier character design, and he will probably play similar to Ibuki in this.

  • ragnarok954

    I was expecting some characters from the Alpha series. The characters they announced were nice but not surprising. Very curious to see what the “new” charcater will be.

  • SolarShift

    KING COBRA GO!

  • So is Tekken x Street Fighter dead in the water?

  • Tenmakujinkyaku

    The fifth character is Go hibiki

    • Tenmakujinkyaku

      Its confirmed.

  • Paul S

    Zubaz.

  • George Anthony Herbers

    So many characters in this game now. Nice to see them going back to the alpha and sf3 series so much.
    Honestly though, when (Or if I guess) a SF5 gets under development I really really hope to see an entirely new cast, new generation style. I remember hoping the same when SF4 was announced, but now that sf4 spans characters from the entire series history(except EX), I would be sorely disappointed if they didn’t try to change things up and kept playing it safe. I know not everyone loves 3S, but I want to see something of that game changing level, something experiamental and drastic.
    I love SF4 to bits and pieces but as these updates just keep coming, I’m simply craving something new.

  • Akuma2000

    I’d love to see Master Goutetsu finally make his debut in a fighting game, capcom brought back Gouken so why not complete it by bringing back Goutetsu too.

  • BlackMasamune

    5th Character is…….Terry Bogard! Get hype for CVS3.

    • leingod

      That would be the greatest thing ever. Literally, I’d jump in joy.

  • defghui

    wheres alex?

  • Henny Henri

    JIN SAOTOME

  • Henny Henri

    BATSU !!!!!

  • They should bring back Skullomania from EX. He would be the boss.

  • Gailim

    its gonna be BBA Mega Man

  • Voldom

    It’s gonna be Jessica, Cody’s sweet hearth…

  • Pepito Go

    Surprised a lot of people shouted Violent Ken. Which I’m really excited for.

    • leingod

      I remember playing him on SVC, but I wonder why he is so popular all of a sudden.

  • YuriGotBack

    SFxTekken ports? fuckin’ weak.

  • $17468069

    Urien or Rainbow Mika would have been cool, but can’t always get what you want.
    Still excited about the additional characters.

    • RazingPhoenix

      With no parry, Urien would’ve been retarded in this game.

      • $17468069

        Really? I’m no pro, just like the character, do you think he’d be retarded as in over powered or really just really weak?

        • RazingPhoenix

          I’m just saying that if there’s no parry, Aegis Reflector mixups would be ridiculous. I’m not pro either. Well Capcom did a good job implementing characters like Ibuki, so maybe I’m overreacting.

          • Logan Via

            Trying to Parry Aegis is sucidal. It’s much safer to block so I don’t think it’d have been that powerful given SFIV’s extremely limited juggle system. Now putting Akuma in SFIV with his crazy rushdown with mixups galore without a parry to punish braindead rushdown, that would be stupid. Good thing they did.. n’t.. oh nevermind. *gives up on life(bar)*

          • $17468069

            Nah you’ve got a good point, would be a bit of a hassle for capcom to change his reflector attributes without taking away a lot of his appeal.

  • o ChocolateMilk o

    …..Rainbow Mika

  • Simply Chun-believeable ^_~ ♥♥

    Poison!!! I am so maining her in this now. Always said that she would translate better in AE being that she has good normals, but nothing to really compliment the SFxT engine.

    As for the 5th character, I really hope it’s a Rival Schools character (Tiffany, Hinata, Momo, Ran, Kyosuke, his brother, Hyo? I think?). As long as it’s not some weak ass “Evil” or “Powered Up” version of an already exsisting character, I’m good. + points for a female though! ♥

  • Yamazaky Geese

    Mustafa from Cadillacs and dinosaurs

  • Akuma2000

    Master Goutetsu

  • JINXHAND

    Seems like an excuse to throw Ingrid in SSF4…

  • $21192153

    I hope the PC version gets this update fast as possible 🙂

  • Shabadenaya

    I wanted karin so badly, it sucks to main a non female character, I can only hope the 5th char is a girl for my sake.

  • Shabadenaya

    Also one more thing if I am gonna pay for this can you add some more things to do offline like a survival mode, time attack or even tournament mode. If you do this for me capcom I shall support you forever.

  • LarryBundyJr

    Please let it be Haggar!!!

  • Ragada Blaze

    KING KOBRA!!!!!

  • Yamazaky Geese

    it will be T-REX from Dinocrisis 😀

  • Andy Tarbell

    It’s gonna be Dog from Call of Nintendogs.

  • Michael_Glade

    sadly most of these kids obviously dont realize that most of capcoms
    games in the past were just “copy paste” i think the only capcom games
    in the late 90s that werent were the snk characters in cvs 1&2 and
    the 3rd strike models

  • RazingPhoenix

    Does Alpha 3 max count? Because Ingrid would be hype. If it does, then it’ll prolly be a rival schools or power stone character, since games got a lot of love in that poll Capcom did awhile back.

  • KubikiriTurkojin

    oro, if not oro, i hope for q or alex.

    also, i will be buying this game, for once capcom will release a complete game, how is that even possible. aint they supposed to be the biggest fags in the industry? have they gone straight and possibly even wanna stop fucking their fans? can all this be TRUE?????????

    edit: never been in a sf game before, yep, thats haggar.

    edit again: will it be called sf4 perfect edition.

  • PJ

    6 “new” stages confirmed from SfxT. 5th character will be Asura for sure as they are just re-using things already made.

  • Jason DonkeyKong Budzi

    BOX ART MEGAMAN?!!?! 😀

  • Jason DonkeyKong Budzi

    A Darkstalkers character would be much appreciated

  • Guest

    Can we have another Dan? Or would that break our consoles due to maximum Saikyo hype?

  • Pooh Hardy

    “never seen in STREET FIGHTER before ”
    VIOLENT KEN PLEASE
    technically he wasn’t in street fighter but in SVC

    Maybe a bonus characters from another capcom fighter…..
    AKIRA KAZAMA PLEASE, OR someone awesome like that…

    or maybe a bonus characters from another company
    PLEASE NOT SOMEONE LIKE CONNOR, KRATOS , MASTER CHEF , ETC
    an ACTUAL fighter please….liiiiiiiiike…. umm….. i cant really think of anyone…. i dunno … jack cayman?

  • Razberryclownsac

    Since Ono shot down the Asura rumors, Haggar seems like the logical choice. But only time will tell.

  • samirerre

    the smartest thing for them to do if they even care about thiere cow anymore is to atleast ….add terry bogard ,for the sake of actually justifying the name of the frenchise.
    jesus i still cant belive they gave ken a cowboy costume.

  • Alirio Mendez

    Let the new character be Gunloc from Saturday Night Slam Masters! The guy’s related to Guile, FYI!!!!

  • Victor Artis

    Shun, Ryu’s little brother

  • samael789

    Weren’t we supposed to get a trailer sometime today?

  • kidmagiA

    How about Goutetsu? Gouken’s and Akuma’s master?

  • David Pace

    Shen Long new character???

    • leingod

      Sheng Long was a mistranslation, but Gouken was born from that. Maybe they should’ve called him Sheng Long in the west or something 😛

  • SolsticeOfGravity

    //Recalls Deadpool’s comment from MvC 3// ….No…..It can’t be……..
