Super Street Fighter IV, which hits stores next week, already ships with a slew of upgraded online features. But it doesn't stop there -- at Captivate, producer Yoshinori Ono and Capcom revealed a fifth new online mode, "Tournament Mode."

As the name implies, this mode will allow you to host your own tournament with either four or eight players on Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network. While the game will automatically determine the bracket, the host can freely edit and re-order it at any time for the best, most balanced matches. SSFIV's replay feature is also available here in full -- a replay of the entire tournament can be saved and later shared. Additionally, a ninth "player" can act as the tournament host, simply setting up and overseeing the tournament, allowing for easy organization of "official" tournaments.

The "Title" system from the original game (which allowed you to unlock "badges" to add to your profile) a return in Super Street Fighter IV. With "Tournament" mode, there's an added twists: Capcom is able to create new titles that can only be won by winning certain tournaments. As an example, if Destructoid wanted to have a "STFUAJPG" tournament, you'd theoretically be able to win that label after Capcom helped us create it. However, you can put that title up in future tournaments, potentially losing it to a more skilled player. So what I'm saying is "don't suck."

As an added bonus, the final battle of the tournament will have its own unique music, a "heart-pumping" soundtrack fitting for the epic clash.

The "Tournament Mode" will be available as a free download on June 15.
