Capcom Announces Ultra Street Fighter IV at Evolution 2013

By on July 14, 2013 at 8:15 pm


As always, Yoshinori Ono took the stage before the Evolution 2013 Street Fighter IV finals. This year, he didn’t just ask the audience to perform a Shoryuken; he also showed a world debut video of Ultra Street Fighter IV, a new DLC revision to Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2012.

The trailer shows in-game footage of a few balance tweaks, as well four of the five new characters: Hugo, Poison, Elena, and Rolento. Ultra Street Fighter IV is due out in early 2014.

    5 More Years of SF4. Lets go!

    • samael789

      Y’know what, what the hell. I’ll sign. Might not do anything but nothing bad can come of this at all.

    • ragnarok954

      Pfft. I rather see a Vita version.

    • Oniros

      I posted it on the r/3DS subreddit. I really would like this as DLC on the eShop.

    • Quan Chi

      capcom is not gonna keep making stuff for the inferior handheld when hardly anyone owns it when they are already having money troubles.

      • TheAverageGuyTAG

        “when hardly anyone owns it”

        You haven’t been keeping up with sales for 3DS, have you?

        • Quan Chi

          you haven’t been looking at how bad it’s doing are you….

          • TheAverageGuyTAG

            Nope. Do let me know how bad those lifetime sales are.

        • spades111

          I think he means hardly anyone owns SF4 3DS… Capcom really was better off giving it to the vita guys, more to do with cross play and what not. 3DS for RPGs son

          • TheAverageGuyTAG

            No, he’s referring to the console itself. Actually, he’s just trolling, but w/e.

          • spades111

            if that’s the case yeah boy be a troll… 3DS is killing the vita. just fact…

  • ExHaseo

    Didn’t they say the 5th character would be announced before finals…?

  • Kanye West

    Where is the 5th character and the “new” stages?

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      New stages are said to be taken from SFxT, supposedly. Fifth character will be announced later during the year; currently, the crowd is placing bets on Haggar.

      • Awsumpossum12345

        My bet is on Asura

        • TheAverageGuyTAG

          Asura (and Bad Box Art Mega Man, for that matter) were both shot down by Ono.

        • Gailim

          Asura has been deconfirmed via twitter, same with BBA Megaman

          smart bet now is Haggar

        • reverze

          already deconfirmed on ono’s twitter

      • Kanye West

        I think they’re saving it for Comic-Con since it’s next week.

        • TheAverageGuyTAG

          I hope so. I’m going to be waiting in anticipation to see if it’s Haggar or not, so I’m hoping I’ll only have to wait a week.

  • CrossLegion

    Weren’t we supposed to learn the identity of the new character with this announcement or was that reported incorrectly?

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      Whoever said that reported incorrectly. The announcement is going to happen later during the year.

  • Jeff Hill

    I’d rather them have ported CvS2 with ggpo.

  • RomanceHD

    5th Character is obviously Evil Dan

    • spades111

      nah more likely Cyber Dan… evils been done

      • Kevin Giguere

        What about “Strong Dan”?

        • I bet it’s Pinky Dan (with a hellokitty in backside of his Gi).. x)

        • Baleoce

          Desperate Dan

          • RomanceHD

            Evil Dan, Cyber Dan, Strong Dan, Desperate Dan i’m liking all of these, hell why not just make a Street Fighter game with different versions of Dan as all of the characters

          • erikdigital

            Steely Dan?

  • spades111

    aghh the box art is ugly… was hoping for something better to replace AE

    • GeForceFX

      the box art is amazing D:

      • KubikiriTurkojin

        no its not, they butchered ryus face.

        • Jack Auffersen

          Ryu’s been a World Warrior for a looooong time. Everyone’s butchered Ryu’s face by now.

  • Simply Chun-believeable ^_~ ♥♥

    I think they said that the 5th character would be revealed in time, with the release of the game itself.

    I don’t like that cover though. Kinda boring. :/

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      I actually do like that cover. o.O

      • Simply Chun-believeable ^_~ ♥♥

        I guess because I would rather there be more characters on it or something? That cover seems to fit more for a collector’s edition or something.

        • TheAverageGuyTAG

          Still looks cool to me.

  • Awsumpossum12345

    I’ll buy it cuz its cheap

  • Go2hell66

    So how was ono’s announcement speech LMFAO

  • Ninebreaker (HurtboxTV)

    So, where’s our 5th character ONO?

  • Julian GameHead Irwin

    come on, add character select screen button checks Capcom!

  • EA575

    Eh, I was close.

  • Quan Chi

    so much for the udon preorder costume hype. them costumes Uhklaaaaaaaaaaaay.

  • Rohan Mayers

    Does this mean that people like me who have SSF4AE on GFWL will not be getting the update to Ultra Street Fighter 4? And/or that people will not be able to purchase Ultra Street Fighter 4 on GFWL? Thanks.

    • Marvin Choi

      no, it’s coming to PC.

      • Rohan Mayers

        Huh? “No, its coming to PC” does not make any sense as an answer to my question.

        • TheAverageGuyTAG

          Ultra Street Fighter 4 is DLC for AE as well as a standalone disc. If AE with GFWL can have downloadable content, then you will be getting the update.

          • Rohan Mayers

            However, in the trailer there is no GFWL logo. However, there is a Steam logo. So that tells me either AE on GFWL will not be able to upgrade to USF or that even though AE will beable to upgrade to USF on GFWL, a standalone USF on GFWL will not be sold.

          • TheAverageGuyTAG

            It’s more likely the second option.

          • Marvin Choi

            You could buy PC DLC stuff for SFIV through Steam. GFWL, at this point, is used only for the lobby system.

          • stephendeo

            I was just gonna say this, thats how i play right now.

          • $16830266


            You can see the logo for Steam right there. If it’s going to be on Steam, that means it’ll be available for PC!

          • wes yoshida

            I really, REALLY hope that they ditch GFWL and start using Steamworks instead. GFWL is just awful.

          • Petran79

            I fear they’ll make it Windows 7+ only. So if you have an old GFWL copy running on Windows XP, it is time to upgrade.

          • wes yoshida

            … What does that have to do with anything?

          • Petran79

            ??? Odd question from a PC gamer…..

  • Saka

    I would like to see my Karin back home. It’s been far too long since she has shown up, and if she’s going to also make a debut in TKxSF, I think it’s time for them to also make her return to her home in the SF games.

  • RazingPhoenix

    Would’ve preferred Super Duper…

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      Agreed. 😛

    • SlimX

      I totally called it three years ago!

      • RazingPhoenix

        Cool. I was just thinking about Combofiends April fools joke. Maybe he watched your video?

        • SlimX

          Hahah I doubt it. I wasn’t trying to say you were copying me; I just thought it was funny.

  • stephendeo

    Goutetsu as 5th character!

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      Isn’t he dead?

      • stephendeo

        wasn’t gouken dead too?!

        • TheAverageGuyTAG


        • Shiki Orochinagi

          He was sleeping!!!

    • Edu Alonso Carrasco

      I see this more probably happening than Haggar. But it is Capcom we are talking about ._.

      • TheAverageGuyTAG

        How so, out of curiosity?

        • Edu Alonso Carrasco

          Like they brought Gouken out of nowhere for SFVI, and the Akuma Origins comic.

          • TheAverageGuyTAG

            That is admittedly a decent point. On the other hand, though, it might seem a bit contrived to have Goutetsu pull a Gouken in the same game.



          • stephendeo

            or come up with a less retarded way like, some mysterious force brought him back…(that too sounds a bit dumb) but whatever it will be cool to see him in a fighting game.

          • TheAverageGuyTAG

            There can only be two explanations: He wasn’t dead after all, or he was dead but resurrected. Neither of which are terribly good explanations.

    • Akuma2000

      This is what i was hoping too.

  • oh god yes my yang cross up is back lets go.

  • Edu Alonso Carrasco

    Didn’t Ono said time ago that there would be no more releases of SSFIV after 2012? there you go.
    Didn’t Ono said that neither Asura nor BBA Megaman is the 5th character?

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      Changing your mind and flat-out lying isn’t the same thing.

    • R.D. Covenant

      Did he say no plans or no releases? I honestly dont remember. I also honestly dont feel like looking it up.

  • kanalgrävare

    Remove Games For Windows Live from the PC version.
    Implement GGPO on all versions.
    Eradicate all FPS related issues on consoles.
    Bring in the buttons checks from Skullgirls.
    Bring in the anti pause function from Skullgirls.
    Nerf Akuma while buffing all low and mid tiers.
    Remove unblockables. (And pseudo unblockables.)

    There. GOTY, every year.

    • KubikiriTurkojin

      akuma doesnt need nerfing dipshit.

  • Vincent Low

    “Ultra Oni”

  • Petran79

    with so many characters it should be called Ultra Chart Fighter

  • Masyws

    Having a day1 Street Fighter V for PS4 release was too much of a dream?

    FU Capcom.

    • James Farrar

      You’ll never see Capcom release SF game as a day one console release. There’s too much risk involved. They want to make sure that the consoles sell enough units to make a lot money on a title. What else would you expect from a company that has been milking the same game since 2008?

  • wconcepts

    Sheesh. Capcom needs a brand new art department.

  • KubikiriTurkojin

    capcom actually releasing a sf4 game worth buying, yay, i will buy it second hand for cheaps. sank you.

  • Baleoce

    Street Fighter Minus Tekken: Combofiend Edition

  • HombreGranJefe

    Capcom with the best trolls. They announced this just before UMvC3 Loser’s Finals. So right in the middle of UMvC3 they roll out “HERE’S CAPCOM WITH A SPECIAL ANNOUNCMENT”, getting everyone all hype about there finally being a Marvel update, then boom, completely different game update announced.

    • Kaihedgie


      No. Just no. Ono told everyone long before EVO that the special announcement was always going to be about Street Fighter

  • GuyAlpha

    That Butt Pirate Poison costume. Yes.

  • Alley_Cat

    capcom will probably troll out another akuma character


  • While I’m thankful for a new iteration of Street Fighter, shouldn’t Capcom focus on a next-gen title? Killer Instinct is the only next-gen fighter that we’ve seen so far, and it’s still an Xbox One exclusive.

    On the possibility of Haggar being the 5th character… why not? I always thought it was weird that Cody and Guy were in SF while Haggar was in UMVC3.

    • Guest

      Sadly, I don’t think it will be Haggar. There have been a lot of rumors going around that the character is “New to fighters” meaning either a character from the Capcom universe that hasn’t been in a fighting game before (Haggar was in MVC3) or a completely new character.
      And honestly, we’re getting 3 new Final Fight characters, I’d like to see them pull from somewhere else.

  • Henry Zurawski

    I really hope the new character isn’t Haggar. It’s cool we’re getting Poison, Rolento, Hugo, and Elena, but I would really like to see a new original character. Getting tired of seeing so many old faces.

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      If it were a brand new original character, they wouldn’t be “hinting” at it; they’d just flat-out say “it’s a brand new character”.

      • Henry Zurawski

        I figured as much, just some wishful thinking. Especially with the “Never been in a FIGHTING game” tease.

  • LunaSlave

    I wish part of the changes included a 3rd ultra for everyone.

    • TheAverageGuyTAG


  • R.D. Covenant

    I’m loving that Elena alt. Hopefully it’ll be available later for those of us who are getting the dlc version. “Pirate” Poison is hilarious but cool looking. I wouldnt hit it but I’d appreciate her surgeons good work for a sec or two.

    I’m hoping for a completely new character or an epic reference. Perhaps we’ll finally get a chance to defeat Shen Long…

  • Guest

    I knew I saw that cover art before!

  • just6822

    $15 for content from a game I already bought for $80.

    … god damn it.

  • John Syers

    Who are those characters above the text in the third picture? The first one looks like a tarted-up Ruby Heart?

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      Pre-order costumes for the four announced newcomers.

  • TheWetWorks

    Could be a Darkstalker to coincide with remake (hopefully NOT morrigan. would like to see other DS chrs brought up… or Jin from cyberbots 😉

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      There is no remake in the works, currently.

  • Tyree Palmer

    i was hoping so much for a fall release

  • Joel Anderson

    I that Elena on the right in the last pic??

  • Rambo Deochenta

    Why not ps4??

  • Ricky Brown

    Anyone else notice that Hugo is in the background of the stage he’s fighting in in the trailer? LOL

  • Ra’Kim Jamal Hayes

    i want ,Shin Akuma, Karin, Sean Matsuda, Oro, Alex, but a littile bit more on the last 3
