    Ultra Street Fighter IV

    Game » consists of 10 releases. Released Apr 17, 2014

    The third major installment of the Street Fighter IV legacy adds characters and stages from Street Fighter X Tekken, a brand new fighter, new gameplay mechanics (including the ability to bring both Ultra Combos into the fight), and a variety of balance tweaks, training enhancements, and new modes.

    My speculation on the 5th character.

    The biggest news coming out of evo was the announcement of Ultra Street Fighter IV. They announced 5 new characters, and only revealed 4 (Rolento, Elena, Hugo, Poison). We know the four that are announced already are ports from SFxTekken, the fifth one is a character "never seen in Street Fighter before" (So it's not Alex, quit saying that). So who could the fifth person be? Here are some of my guesses.

    Asura- Based on how lazy Capcom appears in this, bringing Asura to Street Fighter is another easy move for them. They could just use the work from the Asura's Wrath dlc to do it. I would love this because it would mean that Asura's Wrath 2 is coming. Why else would you just randomly throw Asura in there? (Aside from it being easy, of course).

    Sexy.
    Sexy.

    Box Art Mega Man- Never seen in SF before? Check. (I don't think SFxT counts) Port. Check. Other reasons would be to hype Mega Man returning, and to be stupid.

    Now for the above 2, Ono deconfirmed them on twitter. However, Ono loves to troll, so take that with a grain of salt. With those two ruled out, let's get a bit weirder.

    A Darkstalker- As much as I love Darkstalkers, the series seems to be dead. Sales of Ressurection were a disappointment, and they've been teasing Darkstalkers for so long, it seems that ship has sailed. However, if they decided to bring it back, what better way to announce it than a new DS character. I would love this so much. As for the character itself, easy money would be Demitri or Morrigan. Imagine Midnight Bliss on the Street Fighter folks, it's been done.

    Haggar- This has been speculated across chats and twitter, it would close the loop (He's the only hero from Final Fight not in a SF game so far). And since you're adding two Final Fight villains, why not?

    Scorpion- Worked for Injustice. Even though I would find this hilarious, no chance. Moving on.

    Somebody from SNK: All evidence out there so far suggests this being the right answer. Why? First, King of Fighters is probably bigger than it's been in a long time, XIII sold really well, and the huge showing at Evo 2012 (Not to mention this year) only exposed that to more people. Based on steam data, KoF13 is probably coming to Steam. King of Fighters celebrates its 20th anniversary next year, and what would be a better tribute from Capcom than putting an SNK character in there? Better yet, what better way to promote a new Capcom vs SNK game? This week they're putting CVS2 out on PSN, kinda out of the blue don't you think? It would be a safer bet for Capcom's new fighting game than Darkstalkers, and what better fighting game to kick off the next generations of consoles. Don't say Killer Instinct.

    So, after all that speculation, I predict that the 5th character will be from SNK. Probably one of the main people (Kyo, Mai, Iori). It makes the most sense. Unfortunately, we're dealing with Capcom here. So if it ended up being a Resident Evil or other crazy character (Scorpion!), I wouldn't be surprised. But with all of the stuff mentioned above, someone from SNK seems like a pretty safe bet.

    Imagine this guy being a secret boss in Ultra SF4
    Imagine this guy being a secret boss in Ultra SF4

    Am I crazy? Or is it going to be one of the others I mentioned above. Someone else maybe? What do you all think?

    I think there is a chance that someone from Rival Schools shows up. After all, the two series take place in the same universe. Sakura is already a playable character in those games.

    I really hope it's a completely original new character. They could introduce one of the big new main characters for SF5 early.

    Oh lord if it was someone from Rival Schools I would lose my mind. Even if it's just Batsu.

    I really don't think that Capcom would use that fifth slot on a non-Capcom character.

    With all the fuss comic book fans made about Scorpion appearing in Injustice, I kind of want it to be him so I can see Street Fighter fans pissed off about him too. In fact, he should be the final surprise guest character in every game. It could be a thing.

    If I had to guess, I'd be right there with you on suggesting an SNK character. Not only does it make the most sense timing-wise, it would also be the most thematically consistent with the remainder of the cast.

    I felt so sure about Asura, I didn't see anyone else. But what you said about a KoF character, damn that would be cool. Also Batsu or Kyosuke from Rival Schools would be dope.

    If it was a new original character, they would have said so. It's a character "That hasn't appeared in Street Fighter before." And the core games stick to a pretty much set canon, as nuts as it may be, so I seriously doubt we'll see Asura, a Darkstalker, or Dante. All my money is on a Rival Schools character.

    PS. I'd trade all four of those other characters just for Karin in the game.

    It's gonna be Daigo Umehara, y'guys. Didn't you hear Seth Killian's commentary during EVO? Daigo has reached enlightenment...something something exposing himself...something something isn't afraid of losing...

    Regardless of who the new character is I just want another CvS game. I don't know enough about Capcom games to guess who could be the next character, but I'm gonna go try.

    No point in making a new thread but here's the facts:

    • Never been in a fighting game before
    • Female
    • Pulled from Street Fighter II comics
    • Is probably Sarai Kurosawa

    Man things were hopeful back then.

    Now all I'm hearing is Ibuki's ninja friend and this Cammy/Vega hybrid and it's a real bummer.

    One of Bison's dolls has been the most persistent rumour since this whole thing started. All the hints we've had so far kinda back that up. It'll probably end up being Decapre or Santamu.

    Either way they've really narrowed it down at this point to one of a small group of potentials, none of which are especially interesting or deserving of this protracted reveal process.

    I'm willing to bet this crazy reveal window has almost everything to do with waiting until they have a finished in-game version of it to show off.

    Great that we'll be (almost necessarily) getting a character with an original moveset, so I'm excited for that part. The reveal itself though, by virtue of being a huge unknown just mathematically can't be worth the hype. If they had a five month tease-athon about, like, Juri or someone, it would've ended in disappointment, 'cause even though Juri's great, an unknown quantity just can't live up to months of wild speculation.

    Ah well. I'm getting Ultra no matter what.

    I dunno, Sarai could easily be Ibuki's Ken, and if it ends up being a Bison Doll we'll probably see some sort of Cammy-adjacent moveset.

    You certainly could be right about that, though I'd like to think the one new character they're adding in Ultra (and hyping to this degree) wouldn't just be of a derivative nature.

    But that's just what I'd like to think.
