The latest issue of Famitsu, a prominent Japanese gaming magazine, has tons of new information on Super Street Fighter 4. While the scans are not very high quality, it is easy to see screenshots of what are obviously Super Street Fighter 4 Bonus Stages. Also shown are screenshots of online elements. Once we get the Japanese translated, we will update this post with any new information. We get to kick the crap out of a car again!! Good times!

According to posters at the Shoryuken Forums, some of the info contained on these pages is as follows:
At Least 2 New Bonus Stages: This is obvious just from the screenshots. The "wreck the car" and "break the barrels" bonus stages both make a return for Super SF4.
8 Player Support: From what can be seen, Super SF4's online modes will support up to 8 players.
"Endless Battle": It is suspected that this is a fancy name for the lobby system. As so aptly put by a forum poster, hopefully it will be like the "Quarter Match" system that's in Super SF2 HD Remix. If that is the case, 2 players will play while the rest spectate and talk amongst themselves.
"Team Battle": Apparently there is support for 2 vs 2 and 4 vs 4 in Super Street Fighter 4.
"Replay Channel": There will be a channel where players can watch match replays with other players. Voice chat will be enabled so players can discuss replays.
My take: If this is true, Capcom has really taken the fans' suggestions and seems to be going above and beyond in making them happen. Now I await information on how the Ranked and Championship modes will change and, most importantly, how the actual search engine which finds matches for you is improved. IMO the search engine was the biggest weakness of SF4's online component.
New info: It has been stated that the article also mentions that the Tournament Mode (Championship Mode in SF4?) will be delivered via DLC.
