We recently visited the U.S. office of Capcom and got an early peek at the new iteration of Street Fighter IV series.



That’s the roster count the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV. If you know your history, that’s actually no where near the record size of a fighting game’s character headcount (see: King of Fighters and Namco anime games).

As the fourth major update to the Street Fighter IV series, you can expect a slew of tweaks including changes to hit absorption as well as a number of new combo options. Capcom’s also getting extra mileage from Street Fighter X Tekken by reusing  six of that game’s stages in Ultra.

These include the Mad Gear Hideout in all its traditional Japanese ceremonial charm and the tricked-out truck lot of Pitstop 109. And given the addition of Hugo, Poison, and Rolento, Capcom could have easily called this Street Fighter IV: The Final  Fight Challengers, though we admit it lacks the punchy marketability of “Ultra."

This also marks the return of Street Fighter III’s Elena and the playable debut of Decapre. You can see these new characters for yourself in our supercut, edited from footage we recorded during a recent visit to the U.S. office of Capcom.

Stand by for 5 minutes of the first Xbox One game you need to play
BY MIGUEL CONCEPCION The giant robots in Titanfall drop with authority. Watching these titans come in from the heavens never gets old. They certainly make a statement upon impact, but what really sells it for me is the cracking sound in the atmosphere the second before they land. Whether boarding a behemoth or racking up kill counts on foot, Titanfall is as good as they come. As such, it's the first really compelling reason to pick up an Xbox One.
