Ultra Street Fighter IV announced, with five new challengers

Capcom choose the EVO 2013 fighting tournament to announce the next instalment to their Street Fighter franchise, Ultra Street Fighter IV.

The game adds five additional characters to line up. Hugo (from Final Fight and Street Fighter III), Poison (from Final Fight), Elena (from Street Fighter III) and Rolento (from Final Fight and Street Fighter Alpha II). There is also one more additional character that is yet to be revealed (any guesses on who you think it might be?). This brings the roster up to a total of 44 playable fighters.

The characters have also seen some minor changes (based on fan feedback) to make them more balanced. So for example, Balrog’s Dirty Bull now has longer range, and T.Hawk has a faster walking speed. As well as six new stages there are also new modes and features yet to be revealed.

Those that own Super Street Fighter IV or Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition can download an update to Ultra for £11.99. Alternatively you can purchase the full game (via retail or download) for £19.99. 

Ultra Street Fighter IV will be released on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in early 2014.
