This is the first time I've seen Vega's second Ultra so hopefully this isn't a double post with all the videos that have popped up in the past 12 hours. Not sure of its exact properties but it starts off with a slide so it could potentially help his close range game and won't be as telegraphed as his current Ultra.
This video was pointed out by one of our readers (thanks again EXC355UM!) -- the video quality is unfortunately pretty bad here, but you can clearly see Sagat going into a "taunt" position, glowing while the screen darkens. It clearly uses up one bar of EX meter as well.
In the YouTube comments people mention in previous Street fighter games he could do something similar to power up in some form or fashion. What do our readers think this could be? If anyone else has any news or theories on this, post up in our comments!
Here is a cleaner looking video, showcasing the same move -- starts at 3:33. In the comments it sounds like S-Kill at Fight Club confirmed it's a "power up move with evasion properties" but wouldnt expand on it past that.
Potential uses? Throw, Kara RH Tiger Knee to get point blank, bait throw/move, Souped Up Uppercut into FADC Ultra. Ouch.
Thanks to BAPESTAR for the heads up.
It's confirmed now that Sagat's EX power up has evasion properties and Gootecks says it powers up his next uppercut by 2x. Still not clear if it just evades throws or actual attacks as well.
Also, pointed out by Shin_DVDz, his Standing Light Kick is now two hits instead of one now. It's not clear if it is still special cancelable.
It has been announced that Udon, the company whose artwork is behind Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix and tons of comic books, is creating all new artwork for every one of the endings in Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars!
Here's a comparison between the original artwork and the Udon version (captured from a stream a while back). All of the endings will contain all the same content, just with Udon artwork.
Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars hits stores 26 January. I'll be getting my copy!

Here is a vid showing many of the new Ultras, all in one vid. It seems to be set to some Batman theme music.This vid will let you see an Ultra you might have missed in the flurry of vids we've been putting up recently.

Rose's new Ultra: Soul Satellite
When this Ultra is activated, Rose is orbited by two soul globes. If the other character touches a globe, that globe disappears and the opponent takes some damage. This is definately not the flashiest Ultra nor does it do a lot of damage. It acts as a shield of sorts, but still...
Also, YouTube channel saintconnor has more videos of matches and messing around if you are curious. This video is from that channel as well.
I dunno about this Ultra.
Here's another channel with lots of Super SF4 match videos for your viewing pleasure.
Big thanks to @Slash5150 for the vids, once again!
Bison's new Ultra: Psycho Punisher
Guile's new Ultra: Sonic Hurricane (in the vid the Ultra doesn't connect though)
A new video from CES surfaced showcasing Abel's new Ultra, Breathless and Sagat's new Ultra, Tiger Cannon! Breathless honestly looks like one of the best new additions to the game. Not only is the animation superb, but it can also be charged to throw off the opponent. Sound's like it will be a great addition to Abels aresenal.
Sagat's Tiger Cannon on the other hand looks fairly weak in comparison to Tiger Destruction, although it may have other uses and be very useful in certain match ups. Also take note that Sagat can still kara all of his special moves! This is great news for all of us loyal Sagat players who were wondering if they would take away his ability to kara his Uppercuts, Knees and Fireballs! Overall looks like they may have toned down the damage on Sagat -- fair enough!

Azrael from SRK has once again translated the latest Japanese Super Street Fighter 4 Blog post.
Thank you for all the comments on the last blog of 2009! You're all just too nice! Thanks to you, Lil' Ono and the development staff has gotten really pumped up for the new year, the year of the tiger! And on my first temple visit of the new year, my forecast calls for good luck! What could this mean?!
Well to kick off the new year, today we're introducing new features in SSFIV! Check out the "SUPER NEW FEATURES Trailer" on the official site!
First off, let's look at one of the new features, the alternate costumes. The new characters in SSFIV will of course have their original costume as well as an alt, but the original 25 from SFIV will also be getting a new third alt costume!
Today, I'd like to show you 5 of my favorites!

So, most of you probably caught the live stream of the Las Vegas Fight Club hosted by CAPCOM and saw many of the new features in Super Street Fighter 4. Although obviously not everything was revealed, I wanted to create a list of what we were able to pick out as being new and/or changed from the original version of the game. If I happen to miss anything here please let me know in the comments!
Recorded video of the event showcasing some of the new Ultras.
- The biggest reveal is that Juri has a Custom Combo type Ultra, where she activates and is able to chain together attacks for a set period of time.
- It's not clear if you can juggle with these attacks or how much damage they do within combos.
- Has some sort of EX Teleport move? Not sure what it was exactly, but seemed to pass through attacks to the other side of the screen. (One of our readers points out this is a counter move which allows her to appear in various positions around her opponent. Combine this with her CC Ultra and she will be a real pain to deal with up close.)
- Very fast but takes a lot of damage.
- As previous reports mentioned, seems to have some dive kick/overhead attack. Was hard to tell what was going on the stream though.
- Guile receives Sonic Hurricane as his new Ultra which should help his ground game immensely.
- New Ultra, although not very flashy like his original Ultra, seems to work very well as an anti-air.
- New Ultra doesnt seem to connect off of orignal Ultra set ups.
- EX Snake Strike damage NERFED HEAVILY. Saw jump RH into EX Snake Strike do a fraction of the damage that it used to.
- New Ultra appears to be an air grab with a lot of start up.
- Not sure of Ultras proper application but most likely useful again projectile throwing opponents.
- Dirty Bull is a 720 Grab Ultra where he lands a head butt, steps on their foot and then knocks them out with a punch. Very similar to one of Steve Fox's move in Tekken 6.
- New Ultra is Kikousho fireball, much like her super from Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike.
- New Ultra can be comboed from EX Legs from ANYWHERE on the screen.
- "Chun's new ultra is quarter circle inputs, no charge needed" - Kamano
- Apparently a solid anti air Ultra.
The official Capcom website for Super Street Fighter 4 was updated today, showcasing the second Ultras for many of the characters! Two of which I have not seen yet, C. Viper and Cammy's! C. Viper's looks amazing!
Thanks to Heart of Battle for uploading a couple more of the Ultras, although we've seen these in some of the earlier trailers.
NAKKY BLOG Update with Alternate Costumes - Still waiting for a translation.
Akuma's new ultra looks totally awesome! As a player who mains Akuma I certainly cracked a big smile! Also, the Korea stage looks beautiful. The color palette is off the wall!
Super is gonna rule.
Embedding isnt working for the Gamespot player, but here is a video featuring Guy and Cody. Nothing new gameplay wise though:
For those of you who do not know, Choco is one of the best female players in Japan. She mains Blanka, and as far as I know she won the women's invitational tournament at Gods Garden last year. Here she is battling Japans #1 Sagat, Mago. Anyone want to guess the outcome? Well, I guess the title of the video gives it away -- check it out anyway!
Thanks to John Choi for the heads up on this one.
Mad Catz has released promotional pictures of their new Super Street Fighter 4 branded TE sticks today! There is no firm release date, but we can assume that they will release somewhere around Super Street Fighter 4's home release. When Joystik pressed them on the issue, they were told only to expect it in the Spring timeframe.
Also of note, Mad Catz "anticipates" releasing four new FightPads as well with Super Street Fighter 4 branding.
The videos of Cody vs Ryu and Ken vs Adon posted today were amazing. We decided to get screenshots from those videos. How many? Almost 100 of them! This way you can take your time and really appreciate just how cool these things are.
You can view them by hitting up the Super Street Fighter 4 Screenshot Gallery (they start around 2/3 toward the bottom of page 1) or you can start with this Screenshot and then just click through them from there! There certainly is a lot of motion blur in Street Fighter 4, but certainly some amazing screenshots! I like Ryu getting busted with that pipe! Check them all out!
ADON VS KEN
CODY VS RYU
HeartOfBattle uploaded a new Super Street Fighter 4 video showcasing Ryu's Metsu Shoryuken Ultra which we saw yesterday, but also a brand new Ultra from Cody! Cody's new Ultra looks BRUTAL!
Thanks to one of our readers Gholizadeh for pointing out a new trailer featuring Adon and Ken showing off their new Ultras!
Oichi from Versus City has a copy of the new Famitsu, the one that was scanned a few days ago which broke the news about alternate costumes and confirmation of multiple ultras per character.
Oichi has put together some more info he has found in the article about alternate costumes for other characters. No pics are available , but here's the description he provided:
- El Fuerte's new alt is a festive latin costume, similar to this: http://www.lizgallego.com/Aztec_group.JPG
- Fei Long's new alt is the BLACK MASK aka Bruce Lee's character. Except this one is sleeveless.
- Ken's new alt is a cowboy costume
- Honda's new alt looks like a traditional Japanese thief like this: http://east.sakura.ne.jp/aniba/image/dorobo.gif
- Cody has the white wifebeater and jeans
- Dhalsim has traditional indian garb with a turban
- Rose has a very stylish dress with a long slit up it!
Thanks for the info, Oichi!
Japanese game site Ariesu recently posted a pic of a New Years Greeting Card from Arc System Works, which details on the back the second Bluefesta, happening on Feb. 20th at Shinagawa Stellar Ball in Tokyo, Japan.
According to Oichi at Versus City, this event is basically a convention for BlazBlue and Arc System Works fans. Fans can buy merchandise, listen to developer roundtable chats, play the latest Arc Sys games, and so forth.
While we will not be in attendence, hopefully some new information from Arc System Works will come to light. It's been a while now since we've heard anything about their plans, especially for home releases for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, which recently hit arcades.

CES begins later today, and we're hoping that a lot of good fighting game news, opinions, and impressions come out of it. Last night Capcom began the festivities via Twitter by posting some pics. One is of some of the Super Street Fighter 4 setups at their booth.
The next pic is what looks to be a teaser look at what is surely the new Mad Catz Super Street Fighter 4 TE Stick. The stations shown in the above picture obviously have these sticks. Here's the teaser, showing just a corner of the stick. As you can see, the casing is a little different from the previous TEs, so we shall see what other differences are in store, if any.
Finally, Capcom's Twitter had pics of what looks to be some swag to give away. They are pretty awesome keychains of a Mad Catz TE stick! Not only that, but it has a hide-away hex key tool so that you can mod your stick wherever you go!
