Tomorrow's Street Fighter announcement has spilled, and turned out to be no less than Super Street Fighter IV.

French website JV247 broke the news and offers a handful of screenshots, which feature old hand T Hawk and new fighter Juri, who's apparently an evil Asian girl working for Seth.

Those details come from various forums making unsubstantiated but convincing claims.

T Hawk, for example, is supposed to be protecting Juri, as she has been brainwashed by Shadowloo. The story apparently takes place a year after Street Fighter IV.

Other new characters rumoured are Dudley, Ibuki, Cody, Adon, Dee Jay, Makoto, Guy and Hakan (an Arabic fighter obsessed with oil).

Speculation also suggests fighters gain access to two Ultras now, one of which may be an Air Ultra. There is talk of the Bonus Stage returning too, and apparently engine changes that make Super Street Fighter IV feel very different to the core SFIV game.
