Ultra Street Fighter 4 launches early June 2014, Capcom has announced.
That's for the digital upgrade from Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Peter "Combofiend" Rosas wrote on the Capcom Unity blog. The upgrade costs £11.99 / $14.99 / €14.99.
Two months later, in August, the digital upgrade for the PC version will be released, as well as the PS3 and Xbox 360 full digital bundle and retail versions.
The PC version launches after the console version, then. Capcom said to make up for that fact it will offer a deal where PC players can get the full digital bundle including all of the previously-released costumes for $29.99 / €29.99 in August.
"Apologies to our PC fans, as we did want to release simultaneously, but this was the only way that we could ensure that Ultra Street Fighter 4 would be included in the largest fighting game tournament in the world," Rosas said, referencing Evo.
Ultra Street Fighter 4 adds five characters to the established roster, raising the total playable characters to 44, six new stages and completely rebalanced gameplay based on fan feedback.
Four of the new characters have been announced, all lifted from Capcom's Street Fighter x Tekken game: Hugo, Poison, Elena and Rolento. The fifth "all-new" character remains a mystery for now.
The new arenas, which will be familiar to SFxT players, are Pitstop 109, Mad Gear Hideout, Cosmic Elevator, Blast Furnace, Half Pipe, and Jurassic Era Research Facility.
