More info on the fifth Ultra Street Fighter IV character

Street Fighter IV secretMore info on the fifth Ultra Street Fighter IV character photo



We already knew that Mega Man and Asura were shot down as the fifth secret character in Ultra Street Fighter IV, but now we have more information to clarify the situation a bit -- this new character has never been in a fighting game before...ever. Capcom's David Hinds also confirms that the character is "very much related to Street Fighter." While this rules out Batsu (or any perfect-fit Rivals Schools characters), on the other hand, I'm excited to see who exactly this mystery fighter is.

I think given the heavy relation of Final Fight to the Street Fighter series as a whole, we may see a beat 'em up character make their fighting debut (since the franchise doesn't technically consist of "fighting games"), but we'll know soon enough as Ultra SFIV gears up for an early 2014 release. Personally, I have my suspicions about Carlos, since his companion Maki was technically in Capcom vs. SNK 2, but Final Fight 3's Lucia and Dean are viable options as well. Or maybe Goutetsu?

In other news, Capcom revealed that they've obtained over "18,000" responses from North America and Europe, and "12,000" responses from Japan in terms of what fans want out of the Ultra update, so the good news is they're listening.

Capcom has confirmed that they're not nerfing top tier characters for the Ultra update, but rather re-balancing lower ones to make them viable (Cody in particular is confirmed for an overhaul). So while your favorite character may not be drastically altered, be prepared to learn a ton of new match-ups beyond the five new Ultra characters.

Not-a-Cammy-alt Decapre gets an alternative Ultra SFIV costume

Well, Decapre's altternate costume (via Udon artwork, not the final in-game model) at least distances her some from Cammy. And brings her closer to The Man in the Iron Mask. That is, Leonardo DeCapreo. Decapre's alternative costume in Ultra Street Fighter 4 revealed [Event Hubs]more

Watch Hugo beat up Poison in Ultra Street Fighter IV

I hope Poison is going to be able to tag him back when she gets a trailer because she had to play punching bag this time around. Training Mode is so cruel. Go check out this video to see just what's different in the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV (aside from new characters). Otherwise, enjoy a closer look at how Hugo and his disgusting bird's nest hair will play.more
