Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition
SFIV: Arcade Edition's HUGE Patch Detailed, Trailered
Written By
View author's profile

There’s a huge patch coming to Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition on December 13th. It’s called, rather grandly, “Version 2012.”

To accompany the patch, Capcom has released a trailer giving a brief overview of the various balances and fiddles to expect. But if that’s not enough for you, the Capcom Unity website is hosting a PDF with all the patch notes in full. You can grab it here.

It’s a remarkably robust patch, effectively overhauling vast reams of the character list. In fact, now we come to think of it, how often does a publisher release a trailer for a patch? Not often, is the answer.

Oh well, since we get teaser trailers for incoming trailers I guess trailers for patches are okay, too! )

@2 Why bother to post if you clearly arent interested in this game? As for me im glad they nerf the retarded Hong Kong Connection (Yun,Yang,Fei Long)... I still dont get why they nerf my Akuma though :/

I'm surprised. Capcom aren't re-branding and re-selling the game. Good for them.

i liked it when you used to just jump around punching, kicking, and throwing fireballs. none of this cancelling and dashing and super this and that. 1992, where are you?

SSFIVAE2012 is the new longest sf acronym! Even better than SSF2THDR!

Chun-Li's toe taps should be easier to do now, so I am excited for that

Glad this is coming. The AE Update almost killed the game, so a free re-balance was necessary. SSFIV is still my most played game to date, can't wait to get my hands on this update!

@9: They can be equally as long acronyms, you just wrote 'four' in Roman numbers whereas you wrote 'two' in Arabic numbers. You could subtract 2012 to just 12 or '12 and possibly put V for version in the end.

Wow. Just wow. They actually made it a point to tell us it's free, as if there could be confusion that they or might charge for an update.

I'm pretty sure you'll find a HUGE patch if you get just past Chun-Li's meaty thighs...

Also, it seems like your gamercard isn't showing up either. Just like half of the community.

Play this game more than any other and there are lots of people still online both novice and expert, expect that to increase for a few weeks after the patch also.
Hyped for this, just wish they still had Championship mode like in Vanilla
