News: So when can we expect Super Street Fighter IV Turbo?

Capcom Japan has pulled back the curtain on their "New Warrior" teaser site as the link now goes to the official game page for Street Fighter IV where the company announced Super Street Fighter IV (is anyone surprised, anyone at all?). The game will be released next Spring on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

GameSpot has a very thorough write-up about the game, but here's what we can expect:

  • 8 additional fighters, including series favorite T.Hawk and new character Juri
  • Tweaks and rebalancing on existing fighters
  • A bargain price
  • "Something special" for Street Fighter IV owners who upgrade

    Capcom is currently keeping quiet about what that "something special" will be, but GameSpot did have this to say about why SSF4 will be a standalone game instead of a downloadable expansion:

    Before we dive in, we should explain what Super Street Fighter IV is, and more importantly, what it isn't. This is not a downloadable add-on for Street Fighter IV. You may be wondering, as we did, why Capcom didn't simply release Super Street Fighter IV's additions as downloadable content in the same way that Fallout and Grand Theft Auto IV received massive updates by way of DLC. However, Capcom has decided that the new game will come on a separate disc. Ono explained that when Street Fighter IV was originally being developed, certain aspects of the game code weren't laid out in such a way as to support the features that are being added in Super Street Fighter IV. While Capcom had initially considered making SSFIV's content a download pack of some kind, it became clear that just tacking the new content onto the old game wasn't going to be possible.

    We'll have more soon.
