Here comes a new challenger

Capcom’s not done re-releasing Street Fighter IV just yet. During a panel at the EVO Championships this weekend, the publisher announced Ultra Street Fighter IV, a brand new expansion pack featuring five new characters, six stages, and rebalanced gameplay based entirely on fan feedback. The add-on’s due out early next year as an £11.99 download for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, or as a £19.99 standalone release.

The new characters announced for the game include: Hugo, Poison, Elena, and Rolento. There’s a fifth fighter still to be revealed, but Capcom’s keeping that a mystery for now. The new arenas span Pitstop 109, Mad Gear Hideout, Cosmic Elevator, Blast Furnace, Half Pipe, and Jurassic Era Research Facility. A lot of this content will be familiar to fans of Street Fighter X Tekken. For those of you that didn’t play the series mash-up, though, check out the trailer embedded below.
