Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition Coming in June According to BBFC Rating

Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition could be coming to the UK this June in some form or another, if a rating issued by the British Board of Film Classification is accurate. It could be that the classification is for consoles, although if this proves to be the case, it will go against previous statements made by Yoshinori Ono, essentially saying that the edition would not be coming to consoles.
However, Ono has since made a number of cryptic tweets regarding Arcade Edition DLC, so it could be that the edition's four extra characters are being prepped as add-ons. Or it could be that Capcom is planning to release Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition for consoles at retail. Should that happen, the version would include Yun and Yang, Evil Ryu and Oni as extra characters.
Joystiq speculates that the BBFC classification could be pertaining to the arcade cabinet in the UK - assuming the BBFC rates arcade cabinets - and the hints at DLC could be an entirely separate thing. So, the Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition could arrive as DLC, or it could be coming as a new retail release or indeed a DLC voucher in a new Super SF IV retail package. Either way, Ono keeps referring to DLC, but Capcom is remaining tight-lipped: "Capcom has not made any announcements," reads an official statement.
All will be revealed before June 24th, which is the date the BBFC has tagged Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition for, in whatever form it might eventually take, if any.
