CVG Previews Super Street Fighter 4: Juri too powerful, game feature complete, Confirmation of Selectable Ultras? More!
CVG posted a very interesting preview of Super Street Fighter 4.
The article says the game is "feature complete", which means all of the game's features are in the game, leaving tweaking of characters and making changes to improve performance of various game aspects.
They also go on to state the final few hidden characters, Dudley, Makoto, Ibuki, and Arabic grappler Hakan (which to our current knowledge is only speculation and based on that rumor list that hit a while ago), are "are waiting to be played in the rating-ready build". It's worded as though they know they will be in there, they just are not yet.
Also, they talk about selectable Ultras, which we here at IPW provided pretty solid evidence of the game having months ago (see below for our pics).
CVG: "Look to the Ultra meter and you'll see a 'I' or a 'II' - each representing a different Ultra. Like SFIII you'll pick between two combos before you enter the fight - Guile's Flash Explosion or Sonic Hurricane, for instance - and enter the fight with different tactics based around your choice."
They also state that Juri in her current form is overpowered and that Capcom knows it, and will be toning her down as part of the game's tweaking process.
It was a far more interesting read than I thought would come from CVG. The wording, as though they know what will be in the final game, is interesting. What do you think? Check it out and if you have an opinion, shout out in the comments.
For those who don't remember, where are the two pics we put together showing the two different Ultra meters, one with Roman numeral I and the other with II, indicating selectable Ultras. One pic was a screenshot and the other is a screencapture of Juri in one of Capcom's preview videos. As you can see, Juri has 2 different Ultra meters. Click thumbs below for larger pic.
