Capcom announces Super Street Fighter IV

Capcom announces Super Street Fighter IV

Capcom has announced Super Street Fighter IV as a standalone game with new fighters and attacks.

Capcom has finally delivered on the long-circulating rumours of a new Street Fighter game by unveiling Super Street Fighter IV - which should be like the original, but more superer superior, apparently.

Super Street Fighter IV will be a standalone title which includes all the characters and locations from the previous game, but expands on things by adding in eight new playable characters and a bunch of new features suggested by the community.

Three of the new characters have been unveiled already - Street Fighter classics T. Hawk and Dee Jay, plus a new character called Juri. All existing characters have apparently been tweaked and expanded upon too.

Capcom hasn't yet given out specifics about how the core game has been improved, but promises that all the major suggestions from the fans have been implemented and that the online system has been improved as well.

Addressing concerns that the game will essentially just be an expansion pack or could be rolled out as downloadable content, Capcom promises that the game won't be released at full price and that gamers who end up owning both versions of the game will be able to access a special reward. The reward itself is still a mystery.

Super Street Fighter IV is set for a Spring 2010 release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 - with no PC version yet discussed, though we have contacted Capcom for comment.

Personally, we're just disappointed that Capcom hasn't stayed true to form and called it Super-Hyper Street Fighter IV Alpha Turbo: Special Edition. Let us know your thoughts in the forums and check out our review of the original Street Fighter IV for more info on the series.

If capcom promises the game won't be full priced, does that mean you need the previous game to get this price? Or is it cheapo for the masses?

I've got streetfighter 4 on pc and it's great, don't think i would want to buy it again for a few extra characters. Why didn't they release this as dlc ?? obviously trying to squeeze a few more quid out of this before it dies.

So how many game iterations do you think we'll get through before Street Fighter 5?

I guess 176.

YEEEEAH! Already knew about this but even if it is a standalone I'll still get it - freaking rock on!

If anyone wants a fight sign up to my community forums - always looking for new folk to play with/against.

Yeah i'm more than happy with SF4 & probably wont get the new version unless it comes with the special pad and the pack only costs £9.99 or close

It's been a long time coming but I think I can finally say it and mean it..... Street Fighter? Who cares? It's a legendary game and all. Yeh I traded my Sega Genesis and Sega CD for a Super Nintendo just to play Street Fighter 2. Maybe it's just me but Street Fighter IV was fun for like 5 minutes. My desktop clean-up wants to get rid of the icon.
