It’s hard to believe, but Street Fighter 4 is now six years old. This is the game that revitalised a genre, and made digital pugilism a commercial possibility again. Say what you like about Street Fighter 4 releasing several ultra mega radical awesome updates on a regular basis, but for fighting game fans, these new versions matter.
Anyway, here’s the opening and bombastic trailer for the latest version, Ultra Street Fighter 4:
Ultra Street Fighter 4 doesn’t stray far from the original game, but what it does do is add several new characters, tweaks and balances to the game along with some more new content. Most of it is visual, but for genre purists, the addition of new characters opens up a whole new level of play and strategy.
Here’s another trailer showing off the new specials of the game, as well as all the alternate outfits for the five new fighters. Thanks AGB:
Ultra Street Fighter 4 is out later this year on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game can be bought as a standalone retail title, or as an add-on if you happen to own either Super Street Fighter 4 or the Arcade Edition.
