Calling it right here, the 5th will be Rainbow Mika.

Posted by MrSlapHappy

I'm all excited and stuff. Not enough to buy this, but I do appreciate that its got a 15 dollar upgrade option instead of their typical "buy this again because of bright colors"

we finally get rolento, hugo and poison. now all we need is birdie and sodom and the whole mad gear gang is here. i would rather it was on next gen not current gen, but if they were going to do that they should call it SFV not IV.

Birdie's not Mad Gear, homie.

Posted by MormonWarrior

I'm gonna have to fight the urge to get this just for completionist sake. SFIV is a fine fighting game all told, but it plays like garbage on a controller and I don't want to buy a fighting stick so...yeah. Gonna skip this one.

Poison looks incredibly similar to Dr. Rockso. The Rock N' Roll Clown.

So hype! Ultra hype!

Posted by aspaceinvader

Please just stop capcom. You are milking the fuck outta street fighter iv, this is street fighter 2 all over again. What next sfiv the ultra next gen edition. Sorry capcom but you just turned this into another joke.

Posted by Ghost_Cat

I've only bought the original Street Fighter IV, so I'm all in for Ultra Street Fighter IV 3rd-ish Strike.

Edited by HerbieBug

This is dumb. Hey we have these models we made for the Tekken crossover thing, how about just dumping them into SF4 and something and profit? And they're putting this out on disc in addition to the downloadable DLC. What the fuck, Capcom? This is a level of stupid above and beyond the usual I expect from them.

-___-

@divergence: Championship Ship Edition? Maritime Mauling? Nautical Knockouts? Really sounds like an idea that holds water!

I like the cut of your jib.

I was thinking about maybe picking up SSF4AE during the summer's Steam Sale but this news has driven me to a resolve of not buying that and not buying this.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

I'll see about this...

Posted by Petiew

Damn Capcom, stop supporting this game and adding new content to keep the game competitive and interesting! What a bunch of assholes! I'll just wait for super ultra hyper Street Fighter 4 extra arcade 2015 am i rite guys?

Posted by Grixxel

. . . YEAH!

Edited by BoOzak

Seems worth $15 if you're still playing SFIV after all this time. Even if you're not interested in playing as any of the new characters it'll at least mix things up and give you new people to fight against.

I've never been a Street Fighter fan but I actually appreciate the way they crank out 'EX' editions of their games, and the fact it's supported via DLC so that you dont have to buy a new version like you would a COD game (which hasnt really advanced much since it's 4th incarnation either) is admirable.

Posted by doe3879

I seriously don't think the game need additional rosters. It's freaking crowded as it is.

Posted by FenixStryk

It seems others have mentioned it, but just to reiterate: the only new thing this game is adding is one new character. All of the other "new" content is ripped directly from Street Fighter X Tekken (read: the six new stages and four out of five characters are all from SFxT).

This is exceptionally uninspired... but, I have a feeling Capcom fans will eat it up anyway.

Posted by MelficeVKM

I'm more hype for the balance patch than the new content lol.

It does seem lazy of them to be porting the 4 SFXT characters but it's understandable. They'll be saving a lot of development time as their animations / models are done for the most part.

Edited by Ulong

I'd rather they make a new street fighter with some new mechanics like SF4 back in the day. Focus attacks were a really cool new feature. FADC!

Their argument was that players wanted those characters but did not want to play SFxT. Some dude actually modded Rolento into SSFIV so I guess that proves that there is interest.

Edited by MelficeVKM

@ollyoxenfree Yeah, although I think that's an excuse for "look guys, if we put these characters in it'll save us so much time and money" but they can't really say that I guess.

From what I remember, when Capcom announced the balance patch a few months back people got overexcited and were speculating on new characters being added. They were silent on the idea until Error (the dude you're talking about) put rolento crudely in, which might have motivated them.

While I would rather have other characters, that's just my tastes. I think using the 4 SFXT characters is smart on Capcom's end, if a bit shitty. Although to be honest I play AE2012 that much that I'd pay the $15 for the balance patch alone :p

I don't get why so many people are angry about this update. A lot of you clearly don't even play it anyways so how does it affect you anyways? It's an expansion, getting mad at it would be like getting mad at Blizzard for releasing Mists of Pandaria. Be happy they aren't releasing full $70 games like CoD everytime they do minimal upgrades.

Posted by Chrystolis

At least you can buy it as DLC.

Posted by xxizzypop

I haven't played SFIV in a long time and I wasn't exactly on a professional level of play anyhow but like...

They're doing what really turned me off to SF when I came of an age to notice it in the first place. All the Alphas and Supers and Turbos and Ultras and it just dilutes the brand so hard. Like, you know what a person who casually plays games notices? A new goddamn number.

Some of the first podcasts on Giant Bomb were SFIV centric, so it just seems crazy that we're still iterating on the same game instead of going 'Yo. SFV: and we brought back Indestructible as the title track.'

Wow, this is the stupidest fucking comment I've ever read - "Hey I like to get raped up the ass, and you're dumb."

It doesn't change the fact the this is a rip-off, idiot. And Capcom once again lied to the fans. So how can you say that companies lying to people is a good thing?

No wonder Capcom is in deep shit because they think every consumers is just as fucking stupid as you.

You seem angry. :)

Edit: also good job making a new account just to respond to me, I'm honoured!

Posted by MrMazz

@fanboy_hunter: I think your comment on that comment is the stupidest thing I've seen all day.

Calling this an expansion pack is quiet apt and one I like. I bought the AE update and will be getting this one two since SSFIV is still one of my most played games.

I think Capcom is begining to handle DLC much better and I like how they do BIG balance changes instead of a consistant little ones like NRS. I love Injustice but with the constant updates and changes there isn't really a solid meta to work with. And that will only come when there is a lul in patching. Let people try and find new technology.

I don't see how $15 for new characters which do take actual work to transfer over is such a bad deal. If you do well you can not buy it.

@zerov2 said:

Q: How many times can you release the same game and still have people buy it?

A: A lot

Answer: ONCE, because only one of them was a retail only release, there was DLC and one free update.

People getting mad are fucking idiots.

So let's see:

SFIV, 2009 - $60, 25 or so characters, somewhat limited stages, weak online modes, only one ultra per character, few 'rushdown' characters, heavily turtle based game, god-tier version of Sagat.

SSFIV, 2010 - $40, 10 new characters: Cody, Guy, Ibuki, Makoto, Hakan, Juri, Dudley, Adon, Dee Jay, T.Hawk, 5 new stages , total re-balance update for entire cast, brand new ultras for every character, new trials, better online modes, new arcade endings. Yes, that's 1/3 of the original amount of characters in SFIV you're getting, along with 5 new stages, new ultras and better online play for 2/3 of the cost of SFIV.

SSFIV AE, 2011 - $15, 4 new characters (Yun, Evil Ryu, Yang, Oni), total re-balance

SSFIV AE v2012 - $0, total re-balance

Ultra SSFIV - $15, 6 new stages, 5 new characters, total re-balance

So why are you mad again? Yeah it'd be nice if it was free, but DLC rarely is free now. Capcom are not milking anything. Go back to buying Call of Duty or Madden annually please. Even the map packs on Call of Duty alone represent far less value than any of what Capcom have released for SFIV, re-balancing alone equals a new game competitively.

As the Skullgirls Kickstarter revealed, new characters cost a fucking lot to implement, the only reason this is even happening is probably because they're able to use assets from SFxT, I'm pretty sure Seth Killian straight up came out and said it's $1 million per character in their games. (how accurate that is who knows, but they cost a lot to make certainly)

How fucking dare Capcom freshen up the most popular fighting game in the world. HOW DARE THEY. At reasonable prices too. THOSE ANIMALS!

The levels of idiot on display in these comments is truly amazing.

@sooty: On top of all that it seems people already forgot about the article Patrick recently wrote that talked about how expensive it is to actually develop characters in fighting games.

Place your bets... how many years will it take them to get to Street Fighter V?

@sooty: On top of all that it seems people already forgot about the article Patrick recently wrote that talked about how expensive it is to actually develop characters in fighting games.

Exactly, I really do not understand why people get their panties in a bunch about Capcom. It's like they think all these updates have been $60 or something.

Place your bets... how many years will it take them to get to Street Fighter V?

If it's anything like the wait from Third Strike to IV, a long fucking time! I think we'll see Darkstalkers first and maybe a Capcom vs. SNK game.

@mcquinn said:

The street fighter team is so full of shit.

Yeah. Pretty much the only way I'd buy this is if they added all the Darkstalkers, since we can't have nice things like a new Darkstalkers game and instead get more reheated leftovers like this and crossover games no one ever asked for or wanted ever in the history of the world (Street Fighter X Tekken). You gotta love how that latter one was such a bomb that the Tekken vs. SF game was apparently killed.

Maybe if more people bought Darkstalkers: Resurrection and showed genuine interest in the franchise instead of complaining on the internet, Capcom might have had a reason to develop a new one.

Tekken vs. SF is still in the works, it's rumoured to be revealed at Comic-Con.

This is pretty shameless!

Posted by Undeadpool

Well damn, you had me at Rolento and "doesn't require Arcade Edition"! Day 1 purchase, just might get me to shake off the dust and get back into SSIV!

@raidenmitsuru said:

No it's not. Read my post for why.

I don't understand people's angst over this, it actually annoys me and I'm not sure why.

edit: It'd be nice if these were truly new characters, as opposed to data mined from SFxT, but still, they will add more flavour to the game, in addition to the balance changes, it sort of gives the game an entirely fresh lifespan.

Again, how dare Capcom update the most popular fighting game on the planet. BASTARDS. Even if data mined from SFxT, this update is still great value, if you're not into SFIV to begin with maybe you should just shut up, because anybody with any interest in playing the game won't have issues with it.

SSFIV from 2010 represented one of the best value propositions in gaming. $40 for so much more content. I think I'll just stop trying to get people to think rationally, because haters are going to hate.

I'm gonna ask you again: Do you people think Capcom have released $60 updates to the game every year with little content added? Because that's the only reason you guys should be reacting so negatively, I broke down everything they added and how much it cost below, if people know all the facts maybe they would stop acting like Capcom killed their grandpa.

Posted by Hadoken101

@sooty: Same, I don't normally get bugged by internet reactions but the sheer ignorance is really bothering me. I don't know maybe it's because we're just coming off of Evo but I'm really excited for a new breath of freshness in the game.

I'll wait for Hyper Ultra Super Street Fighter IV.5: Limited Ultimate Day One Release Edition (with Digital Soundtrack) Thanks. Looks good though. Are there Dive Kicks?

Posted by GreekTrojan

On face value I was really to lol this (Crapcom, Scamcom, I'll wait for the Uber Remix edition etc...) but changed my mind after reading a comment (On gamefaqs of all places). Basically this is the best case scenario for DLC from a gamer's perspective. This adds content to a wildly popular game thats been out for several years which keeps it fresh and adds value to people who already own it. Like others have said, rather than a new full retail release, you get this and can keep on playing the game you want. MMOs have done this for a while and its refreshing to see it creeping its way into consoles.

Posted by RaidenMitsuru

@sooty: You are the one getting your panties in a bunch about this dude. I have no problem with them making as many versions of this game as they need to, if the demand is there, god bless. But I would have hoped for at least some new characters (at least one) that we haven't seen yet. ( I know they have yet to reveal the last one.)

I feel Capcom is in a unique position right now, because they do have the number 1 fighting game, to kinda lead the way with how they distribute content for fighting games. But this just seems like filler as we wait for the next real fighting game from them.

And they are just adding the stages from SXT, right? Basically saying, yeah we know none of you want to play that game, so here is that content in a game that people actually play. So if this is a good "value proposition" to you, again, have fun. But I'd like to hold the SF series to a little bit of a higher standard than this.

Edited by Kosayn

Thought about this not being on next gen when they announced it. And honestly, I get why they don't try to be on there right away. Fighting games need critical audience mass, and not enough people will necessarily invest in the new consoles till one of them proves viable. Fighting games are highly dependent on network stability for their online play to stay populated. Fighting gamers are resistant to new versions unless they're crafted carefully and faithfully; notice that they played Melee at Evo rather than Brawl despite it being on a 2-gen old system.

RPGs have a different, but equally logical set of reasons why they don't come out in a launch window.

Sometimes conservative decisions have a reasonable basis, much as we as gamers would like the big projects to commit and hit new consoles faster.

Thank you to @raidenmitsuru for echoing some of my thoughts as I finished reading through the comments. While I too respect the position of those trying to defend this latest Capcom kerfuffle I think some effort could be expended to understanding, on a cursory level, why people point and lol at Capcom. I also go into this as long time Street Fighter fan, including the various SFIV iterations and a fan of watching high level play, usually on Wednesday Night Fights specifically but not solely on WNF.

My take on why people get snarky is actually well outlined in an earlier comment that attempted to break down the various updates to SFIV. It's sort of a, "can't see the forest for the trees" style of thing but the post contained a new version of SFIV every year since 2009, that's five versions including this new release here in 2013. From the more casual or outsider perspective this is just seen as Capcom, "Milking it." I can also tell you, as a person around for the SF2 version creep, of which there was also five iterations, people felt the same way on both sides of that fence too. Again, I'm a fan and back then I loved every version, including Champion Edition and SSF2 no Turbo.

When trying to understand why we see the negative reactions that we do consider that there are people not limiting their examination to SFIV but to Capcom as a whole. Capcom pulled a very similar thing with (Ultimate)Marvel Versus Capcom 3 and the "gold edition" of Resident Evil 5. They more recently started a whole new strain of foofarah with on-disc DLC in SFxT and Resident Evil 6. This long running tendency across their titles means that people tend to take a more critical eye when looking at any Capcom release. Factor in the historical long running aspect of their tendencies in regards to Capcom fighting games means and extra helping of critical-eye for Capcom fighting titles and their updates.

Now consider that folks hate being suckers and every customer that bought SFIV for $60 at launch probably had, on some level, a bit of negative reaction when SSFIV hit and was $40 for everything they already paid $60 for and a whole lot more. Then the Arcade Edition patch hit but Seth Killian told everyone it was the last patch so just chill out and don't rage at Capcom. Those same folks that were already $100 in went ahead and got themselves in another $15 deep. Yet, despite the earlier promise that Capcom had hit the final version of SFIV, here we are, another update* and another $15. Those same folks from earlier, already $115 deep, have got to be shaking their heads a bit in the face of $130 vs. jumping in now at $40**.

All of this means a meta game has developed where folks want to weigh the pros and cons and pick their time to jump in. The later they jump in the better. Some folks win out and some folks get burned but either way the Capcom update style has fostered this meta behavior. The behavior itself is based in a sort of competition, almost a Mexican Standoff, between the customer and Capcom meaning it engenders competitive and negative feelings, thus what you end up seeing in the comments is borne of these attitudes.

Sorry, I went a bit long here and I still feel like I had to cut a lot of nuance out to keep it this short but I hope it helps. I personally find it helps when, any time you find yourself wanting to say, "I can't possibly understand how someone could X..." that you actually pause for a moment and honestly try to come up with reasons. Remember that, generally, nobody is going to be impressed when you are unable to do something.

*Ignoring that there was yet another free update in between which nobody can rightly complain about from a value proposition stand point since it was free but still violated the "final version" statement but we should let it slide.

**To be fair, jumping in now also means you missed out on 5 years of playing before and that whole early adopter discussion. Not to mention the whole thing about what kind of responsibility these $100+ folks have on their end to getting their moneys worth by actually playing!

Posted by KittyVonDoom

I'd love to spend more time with Street Fighter, but my time with Super was enough for me to know I don't have the absurd dedication for a decent fighting game.

Whatever at them lying once again. You lost me before Arcade Edition anyway, Capcom.

The actual people cut into this video should tell you who this is aimed at. They've been begging for another update. If you haven't been playing the game, why all the outrage? I'm excited for it.
