Combofiend Details New Ultra Street Fighter IV Patch

Capcom has revealed the details of its new patch to USFIV, numbered 1.04. On his Capcom blog, Combofiend writes that Edition Select will now be added to unranked online play, and that the omega versions of each character will be selectable in that mode. Omega characters will only be usable in Edition Select, as there is no omega mode in the game.

Combo adds that the trials for characters will be updated to reflect changes in Ultra, and that new trials for Yun, Yang, Oni, Evil Ryu, Hugo, Elena, Decapre, Poison and Rolento will be added to the game.

Patch 1.04 will also include new balance changes to make all characters viable—Combofiend singles out DeeJay especially—and fixes to the recently discovered Vega and Yun bugs.

Lastly, the download will contain the compatibility files for the new wild costumes, which will be available for purchase. Combofiend, however, did not give a date for the patch at this time, saying only that it would release "shortly after Capcom Cup."

Honzo Gonzo is learning Guilty Gear XX Accent Core +R in anticipation of the release of Xrd in December, and he has released two small videos for Faust that may help other players new to the game. The first video is a brief rundown of combos that +R Faust can do that will still work in the new Gear title, and the second is a brief description of the main tools players will need to know as they work to improve their gameplay.

Both of these videos are targeted at new players, so they do not touch on more advanced combo techniques such as jump installing and do not explain in depth how to execute Faust's fautless defense cancel. And while Faust has several changes to his special moves and normals in Xrd, these two guides should help players looking for a quick breakdown of how the character handles as they venture into Guilty Gear.
