Though Ultra Street Fighter IV has been available on last gen systems for some time, the PlayStation 4 has been lacking Yoga Fires and Gohadoukens. That ends next month as Sony and Capcom have announced that USF IV is going to make a current-gen debut.
$24.99 is the appealing price tag that fighting fans can expect come May 26th. The title will be released in the Ultra fashion as a package deal, including all of the DLC. Said DLC includes characters, stages and other content like color/costume variations.
To sweeten the pot, the folks over at Other Ocean are handling this version of USF IV and they’ve managed to cut down a bit of the input lag that hindered the PlayStation 3 version’s gameplay. Not the biggest addition for casuals, but for the competitive types, this may mean the world.
USF IV is set to see a worldwide release and no other consoles have been announced.
With a price tag like that, Ultra Street Fighter IV is quite the steal. I admit to not being the biggest fan of the series, but I acknowledge its importance when it comes to the gaming scene. The addition of USF IV will also likely help move units. I can only assume that after the announcement of Street Fighter V’s console exclusivity to the PlayStation 4 many competitive folks began eyeing the console up, now they have a reason to pick one up before SF V’s release, whenever that is. I can’t help but wonder if these are the beginnings to a strictly PlayStation future when it comes to Street Fighter. What does this mean, if anything, for the Marvel vs. Capcom series’ future?
