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

View author's profile

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.

I can see it now...900/1000 because of 1 achievement to complete all impossible combos, and another to "complete all achievements".

I'm sure I read somewhere a few months ago that Capcom stated the Arcade edition would NOT be released on consoles. Their reason was that the characters are balanced differently for the arcade version and wouldn't play well at home.

I bought Street Fighter IV and only bought Super SFIV because Capcom said it would be the final version of the game. I do not want to buy a third retail version but DLC would be fine for me, although I think it would be as expensive as a new disk considering Capcoms price policy (one character in MvsC3 costs 400 MSPoints that would be 1600 for Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu and Oni).

Assuming the games make as many improvements to the formula that SSFIV made to SFIV, I'd be all over them like a rash.

Considering the Arcade Edition would be more than just characters (balancing and stuff) i would say it will be a complete dlc for either 1600 or 2100MS Points...i dont think they go through printing again but well capcom..yeah

But whatever i will buy it anyway, its FKN STREET FIGHTER

in a way i hope its coming to retail but in a way i dont. it will prob be identical to ssf4 with 4 new characters, ssf4 is abit different to sf4 with different modes etc but this will just be identical.
+ i havent even got around to buying ssf4 yet, getting it next month for my birthday.
either way retail or dlc ill most likely buy.

I bought SF4, but not SSF4.. but if this came out, and at a good price, I think I would buy it.

Does anyone know how many people still play SF4 online? Did everyone abandon it for SSF4? I haven't played it in forever, mainly since I assumed no-one would be playing online.

I wouldn't mind paying $30 if it were a retail release. As long as they add new characters, classic stages (Ryu/Ken/Sagat stage from SF2) and some other new features. Keep SF alive or else Mortal Kombat will destroy Capcom and it's fighting games.

Rented SFIV and bought SSFIV for £20 with 3 other games, so wouldn't mind buying this if it wasn't a £40 game, especially considering SSFIV was around £20 or so on its own when it came out and that added more than 4 new characters.
Either way, interesting to hear.

Im all for SF and Capcom but they are seriously going overboard. The pricing for costumes and characters in MVC is a joke, then they start charging for shadow battles and now this? How come the new MK has a shit ton of content yet capcom seem to want us to buy every little thing they add for crazy money? How about NOT giving us Ryu and Akuma AGAIN and get some more grapplers in there? Damn fan polls.

Complete ripoff. When SSFIV came out I was alright it being a retail game, graphics were better more balancing it was fine. I was completely fine with it, but this is a complete ripoff. Make a new goddamn game or don't but decide. They had 2 years since SFIV during this time using the engine they could have made a new game with all these characters, balancing, graphics update and some new characters. I hate it when this happens and of course no new costumes on the disc as usual go and buy the unlock files for 320 each. I'm full of this...Make something new.

This should come to retail for those who haven't picked up either street fighter or super. It should also be bundled with all the outfits that capcom released for both games. For the players who already own both games or super, the characters should be dlc.

Capcom sucks balls big time!!!!
Capcom is releasing 16 versions of a game with minimal difference between them , they use the same code , throw in some extra's and let the good people pay 30$ instead of the 400MS points for something they could easily put in some update. Is this the way capcom thinks how we should help japan??? I think they live too close to Fukushima 1 and they melted some vital piece of their brains.

@23 You act like this is something new, Capcom has been doing this with Street Fighter and the Mega Man series for more than twenty years, and I'm sure they'll continue to do it as long as people will buy the games. Honestly, I think this is a bit absurd thought and I think I'll pass on these...what? Four extra characters? Thought, seeing what Capcom charges for DLC on MvC3, these would all cost 400MSP each if they were released as DLC and given that they also added character tweaks and new EX moves, this might as well be another stand alone release as long as it's not more than $30.

On a side note, this could be a spur of the moment decision to releases these. A lot of Japanese companies are hurting now due to the disaster since a lot of stores over there are closed, video game sales are way down, and a number of companies have had to delay or cancel titles, so we may see some companies releasing titles in the West just to try and make up for money they're losing with Japan being in such a bad situation right now.

I might eventually buy this seeing that I don't have the fourth installment of Street Fighter thus far but first of all things I am going to purchase Mortal Kombat that is coming in a matter of broadly a couple weeks.

If this is either retail or dlc it will be expensive; based on the cost of costume packs. I love SFIV but I won't pay £25 for 4 extra chars. Looking forward to MK.

To date Capcom have not released a single new character as DLC (both Shuma-Gorath & Jill in MvsC3 were already on the disc). I predict that this is either a arcade cabinet or new retail disc.
