Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition Getting Five Additional Characters
Written Saturday, July 13, 2013 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition is set to receive five extra characters, Capcom has revealed from its Evo 2013 Panel. Set to be delivered alongside the next update, Rolento, Elena, Hugo and Poison are among the new additions to the roster.
The fifth character is being kept under wraps for the time being, but apparently it's a character who's never featured in the Street Fighter series before. Could it be a guest star of some sort? A Marvel fighter perhaps? A cross-over from another fighting game?
The update, which adds the new characters, six extra stages (lifted from SFxT) and an array of balancing tweaks will be coming as a download sometime next year for $15. A disc-based version for $39.99 that bundles SFIV: Arcade Edition, the new update and all of the DLC costumes released thus far will also be available. This is all due to land in early 2014.
