In addition with the offcicial announcement of Super Street Fighter IV - Arcade Edition, Capcom unveiled the official Packshot of the Game.
dope! Stoked to get this dlc...after 6 months! haha still excited though!
Hey, wait a second. I do not have Super Street Fighter IV, uh oh, time to buy this.
Next time on Capcom Ball Z The Super Saiyan Super Street Fighter IV HD Turbo Remix Hyper Arcade Edition!
Can someone please tell me what this game offers that SFIV does not. If the answer is "it has 5 more characters and some new levels" then we'll just file it under "re-skin" and move on. Seriously, what makes this game worth an additional $50 over SFIV which I already own?
It only matters for competitive play because of the the nerfs and stuff.
I don't recall if a price point has actually been announced for this title. When one is announced I imagine it will be around $20-$25. This is strictly DLC. It's not simply the new characters people will be going for in this new DLC. Players will have access to the most recent balance tweaks released in the Arcade Edition. Character balances have shifted, moves have changed and players want to keep their skills sharp on the most up-to-date versions. If you don't care about that aspect of the game (which is odd as those things matter in a competitive game like Street Fighter) then yes this simply offers 4 new characters and additional features to SSF4. If you are still playing Vanilla and only Vanilla, then I have to ask if you are having issues finding matches given most of the players have moved to Super and soon onto Arcade Edition.
It won't be $50... It will contain new online modes, centered around the replay aspect of the game, a wave of new balances and tweaks for all 35 characters including 4 brand new characters who will come with their own trophies/achievements, challenge modes and Arcade Mode beginnings and endings. You don't have to get the disk version, just get the DLC. Heck you don't even need to get the DLC. If you download the free patch Capcom is releasing for Super Street Fighter players, you can at least play against the 4 new characters people will be using in AE. Either way, this is now directed at the people complaining. All the stuff I mentioned isn't free to make. Obviously costs Capcom a fair bit to render new character models, add features, get the voice actors back in..you're all idiots if you think, thought this would be free. Can't wait. Will get the DLC for PS3 so I can play straight away on my main console and then the disc release for Xbox 360.
It's called dlc , google it
Not a big SF fan but I sold SFIV awhile ago just to wait for the super version and never got around to it, I knew that this is going to happen again (but this time it's dlc and disc) when arcade version was gonna have more characters so I held it off. Good news for me.
so basically arcade edition is only an update to Super Street Fighter 4 with 4 more characters right?
is this dlc only? or will there be a retail disc on the shelves too? i havent got super street fighter 4 yet. dont want to buy it only to have to fork out more money to make it more complete. id rather buy a disk with everything on it. capcom are idiots
Did you click the link? PS3 packshot. Yes, it's also coming out on disc, includes everything excluding the dlc costumes.
i clicked the link.. but it was in german or some foreign language. thanks for clearing that up anyway. getting the retail disc
As much as i like SF4 i sold it and never look back. Scam after scam, talk with your wallets people
I called this disk release months back. If Capcom can milk, they will. All those people that disagreed with me then, step forward and admit that Capcom are a disgrace. I bet there is a bunch of DLC on the disk that you'll have to pay to unlock too. Pointless costumes..
I take it youre more of a Tekken fan then, considering your name and pic. Me too, cant wait for Tekken X and TTT2.
