SFIV Championship mode next week

Tournaments, spectators, rewards.

Capcom has revealed a Championship mode for Street Fighter IV, which will be available for PS3 and Xbox 360 next Friday 24th April.

This new feature lets players compete in five grades of tournaments, earning Grade Points for victories that open more exclusive competitions down the line.

Win a tournament and you will receive Championship Points. These are a kind of prize money, and the greater the skill-level of the tournament, the more points will be won. Capcom has not said what Championship Points will be used for.

Championship mode also introduces a Replay function. On PSN, bouts can be rated using values like "awesome" or "funny", and will be ranked accordingly. On Xbox Live there are no ratings; instead, players can save the replays and turn on the input commands to see the exact moves used.

Street Fighter IV was released in February and got top marks from Eurogamer. Our Street Fighter IV review explains why.
