When you're in the secret-keeping business, nothing ever quite goes according to plan. Especially in today's fast-paced world of camera phones and relative anonymity. So instead of a company rolling out the latest additions to its character lineup in some sort of grand fashion, most people find out about this stuff by seeing awful-looking scans of print magazines, or leaked, poorly translated information out of Europe. There is no law in Europe when it comes to leaking things related to video games, it seems, and that's been something of a running gag for years now.

That said, these shots of previously unrevealed characters in Super Street Fighter IV, which surfaced on a site out of Denmark earlier today, don't need much translation.




         


Japanese magazine scans have also confirmed the addition of Dudley, Ibuki, and Makoto to the roster. In case you're keeping score, that means that jusssst about everything contained in the initial burst of leaked SSFIV information has gone on to be correct. About the only thing left at this point is the identity of the 10th additional character, which that early leak pegged to be a new fighter named Hakan.

Anyone want to start taking bets on that guy's existence?

Surely these secret keepers at Capcom are masters of their craft.

#6 Posted by animateria (3252 posts) -

Hakan probably exists since all the rumors up till now are all confirmed.
 
With 10 characters, SSFIV has more new playable characters than the original roster for the arcade version.
 
I don't think anyone can say this should have been DLC any more. It's a full fledged game.

HYPErventilating

#8 Edited by Hot_Karl (3309 posts) -

Dudley is not a surprise, and I wish they chose someone else- Dudley is too similar to Balrog for my taste. Would've loved to see Alex in all his HD glory. 
 The other two characters I'm excited to toy around with however.
 
Oh and Hype, certainly Get Hype.

#9 Posted by Gahzoo (361 posts) -

Excellent news. 
Personally, I would think that Hakan exists. 
 
Also, GET HYPE!!!!!!

...my brain just died for a sec. I am HYPED.

#16 Posted by bartok (2371 posts) -

Dudley was my go to guy in SF3. Glad to see Capcom acknowledging the existence of the red headed step child of the Street Fighter franchise.

#17 Posted by Dan_CiTi (2928 posts) -

As much as I love Alex, Yun, Yang, Necro and Elena; these are definitely the best choices for the game. I can't wait to get my Dudley on!

SSF4 has SO many options on who I want to main. Juri, Dudley, Makoto, Ibuki, Guy, Adon, Ryu, and Abel. Original SF4 I went with Ryu, but with all these choices of awesome I can't wait to find out who makes a perfect fit. :D

#27 Posted by mnzy (2909 posts) -

First game I'm going to preorder in many years.

#28 Edited by Quacktastic (1066 posts) -

Worst kept secret in a while, but actually seeing the shots makes me that much more sure I'm buying the game.  The more characters to distract me from the fact that T.Hawk is the worst thing ever, the better.

#29 Posted by AgentofChaos (1565 posts) -

Eh i'm not much of a hardcore fighting guy, as long as it has Ryu.

#30 Posted by stokerd (48 posts) -

Since I never got to play SFIII, this will be welcome. I look forward to playing around with some of these new characters. 

#31 Posted by JackSukeru (5817 posts) -

I'm probably gonna buy SSF4, which is stupid since I hardly played regular SF4. I just like buying fighting games it seems, meh, maybe I'll get a fightstick too.

#32 Posted by Chocobo_Blitzer (303 posts) -

Dang, I'm surprised GB was on this so fast. You madly refreshing forums too Jeff?

#33 Posted by TheFreeMan (2712 posts) -

Ibuki, Makoto, and Dudley? Pretty much my three favourite characters from SF3. I am hyped!

#34 Posted by Milkman (16228 posts) -

Makoto? Really? That's one I really wouldn't expect.

#35 Edited by Yagami (579 posts) -

FLOCK YEAH!!
 
Dudley vs Vega = Fight of the Roses.
Dudley vs Rose = ...Brainfreeze...
Dudley vs Balrog = Let's fight, like gentlemen.
 
And DAMN! MAKOTO LOOKS GREAT!

#36 Posted by raikoh05 (408 posts) -

PC version  or bust, needs moar ibuki and makoto costumes

#37 Posted by Mechanized (307 posts) -

Can't with for Super Street Fighter IV: Turbo so we can get the rest of the cast in.

#38 Posted by bartok (2371 posts) -

I guess you need all of the new World Warriors from Super Street Fighter 2 but why waste a spot for          T. Hawk ?

#39 Posted by LordelX (66 posts) -

Finally some SFIII characters. I was starting to worry this game was going to be Street Fighter Alpha IV.
#40 Posted by RipTheVeins (1540 posts) -

Interesting... I was expecting Ibuki to be closer to Cammy's build rather than Chun-Li, but she still looks pretty good.

#41 Posted by TheYear20XX (425 posts) -

Hype status: gotten.

#42 Posted by babz (310 posts) -

idd take that bet that the last payer will be Haken!

#43 Posted by Reverseface (1221 posts) -

DUDDDDLEY IN THE HOUSSSSSE BYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATCH!

#44 Posted by jakob187 (21503 posts) -

Based solely on my belief that the original "covered-up press sheet" that showed Juri and someone under something that looked like it would be a new character like Hakan...I'm more than willing to bet that, yes, it IS Hakan. 
 
Hypes...gotted.

#45 Posted by Farley_Lives (278 posts) -

The Prophecy has come TRUE!!!!!

#46 Posted by 88Fingers (279 posts) -

Cool!
 
Being a Street Fighter III fan, this makes me happy.
I loved playing both  Ibuki, and Makoto.
 
Can't wait to see the alternate outfits for these two girls.

Have you even played SF3? Dudley plays nothing like Balrog, not even the slightest. Q plays more like Balrog and even that's a stretch. And can you REALLY complain about someone playing similarily in a game with Ryu, Dan, Sakura, Ken, Akuma?
#49 Posted by Bigandtasty (3202 posts) -

Hell yeah. Time to trash talk like Dudley on XBL.

Corkscrew Cross? 
 
So a mixture of Cross Counter and Corkscrew Blow? Interesting...
