Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition Download Add-on Available, Stand Alone Coming End of June
Capcom have set a release date for the Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition and its closer than you think. Available from June 24th in Europe and June 28th in North America, players will be able to purchase the stand alone title on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 and experience the Arcade Edition in the comfort of their home.
For those that already own Super Street Fighter IV, the downloadable add-on will also be available for purchase via Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network from… now. 🙂
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition brings four new playable characters (Evil Ryu, Tun, Yang and Oni) taking the player roster to 39 characters. Each of the new additions brings their own unique move sets and super combos to the fighting arena. All other characters have also been rebalanced ranging from subtle changes such as recovery speed to drastic hit box alterations for a more level playing field.
The updated Replay Channel allows players to share their favorite battles with other players and makes it easier to watch matches for the best “Street Fighters” available. The Replay Follower allows tracking for 5 favorite players with notifications when new replays are available from this set. Proud players can distribute their data to up to 50 friends via the My Channel Advanced feature. Matches by featuring the best-of-the-best can be viewed on the Elite Channel where players can watch replays of the top players by filtering out matches with lower scores.
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition Downloadable Add-on is available for Xbox LIVE for 1200 Microsoft Points or $14.99/£11.99/€14.99 via PlayStation Network. Existing Super Street Fighter IV players will still be able to play against Arcade Edition owners via a free downloadable upgrade.
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition is as close as you can get to bringing a Street Fighter arcade experience into your living room without actually shelling out the thousands of dollars for it.
