More information on Super Street Fighter 4's Tournament Mode DLC

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • April 20, 2010 at 12:25 p.m. PDT
Capcom put out new details on the free Tournament Mode DLC pack for Super Street Fighter 4 which will be released on June 15, 2010. First off there's a trailer which showcases the title's various online modes.

Here's a bulleted run down of what was revealed today.

• Tournament Mode is a head-to-head in single-elimination tournament with brackets, with works with 4 or 8 players.

• You can watch other tournament matches in progress while you're waiting for your turn and voice chat. Players competing can hear you as well, but if it annoys you, there's a mute option.

• To help with lag, spectators will be a little bit behind the actual match that's being played.

• Tournament Mode works with SSFIV's extensive recording feature.

• There are no battle points or rankings, but Tournament Mode will give players unique and special online titles, which can be won and lost from other players.

• Like SSFIV's other online modes, character selection is double-blind.

• Tournaments will continue on even if a participating player drops out.

• While the max amount of people a tournament can hold is 8 players, a 9th person can be there as the host. If the host drops, another will be found.

GameTrailers also interviewed Yoshinori Ono about the DLC pack.

Plus Capcom sent out these shots of the new mode.

Also there's Tournament Mode video walkthrough here, so you can see more of what it looks like when you're setting things up.

Kudos go to Duckmouth, SFilp, Ravitz, Dante6126 and Kgoule, for adding to this article.

Paradoxx said on April 20, 2010 at 12:53 p.m.

If this game came out in 2009 or 2010 it would have easily been MY game of the year. But considering Halo Reach will be out this year it stands no chance. i want this game

#14
THawk said on April 20, 2010 at 1:02 p.m.

^^^ Halo Reach? GTFO.

#15
recovery said on April 20, 2010 at 1:04 p.m.

Halo? wow talk about bad taste in games
Halo hasn't been good since Halo 2

GOWIII already destroyed any chance Halo had

recovery said on April 20, 2010 at 1:04 p.m.

Show ALL the alternative costumes already!

Dugi said on April 20, 2010 at 1:14 p.m.

Halo Reach can easily win GOTY.

If you think God of War 2 HD can win GOTY, you're sadly mistaken.

#19
recovery said on April 20, 2010 at 1:20 p.m.

Halo 2 (reach) HD is fail, GTFO with that retarded series. Gaylo is bullsh*t

SedoSan said on April 20, 2010 at 1:49 p.m.

They're playing T.Hawk's theme!!!??? WHY???

BECAUSE IT PWNS!!! Yeah!
*Plays T.Hawks theme* <(^.^)>

Btw, seriously interesting online modes. a note though, I saw the "Region" option, and it was set on "Same", what if I live in a small country, what other options than "Same" there is?, is there a "Near by"?

#25
SomeDude said on April 20, 2010 at 2:07 p.m.

@22 - Lol, also wanted to comment on that...damn you!

@23 - Yeah, it's been ages XD but this last week seems AWFULLY slow..

Just release the game!

#26
SomeDude said on April 20, 2010 at 2:12 p.m.

@ 25
By region it's probably more continent-wise.
If you live in England then it's Europe,Canada = America,Japan = Asia.

#27
Ztv said on April 20, 2010 at 2:28 p.m.

HALO REACH AROUND MORE LYKE

#28
Paradoxx said on April 20, 2010 at 2:29 p.m.

@21

hahaha i know. everyone gets so butt hurt when a nonfighting game is mentioned.

i love street fighter, but everyone knows halo will sell MILLIONS more. get the f*** over it rofl

Can't fu(kin wait!!

EverydayLegend said on April 20, 2010 at 2:42 p.m.

@ Paradoxx
Total sales numbers, possibly so. But how many sales will be attributed to used/secondhand sales with little to no profit to the original developer/publisher? In that respect, I believe that Super IV will probably do its fair share of market-stompage, especially when there's that much additional content over and beyond what was offered he first time...and for only $40, rather than $60.

Also, the release of MvC3 will drop a deuce on whatever steps to it. Just saying.

#31
Paradoxx said on April 20, 2010 at 2:53 p.m.

@28: Are my feelings suppose to be hurt?

@31: Well said! Don't people understand someone could like other games besides *GASP* Street Fighter? Just because I said I'm excited for Reach I've become a heretic to these boards. Street Fighter zealots need to chill. I also agree with your statement on MvC3.

#32
x_Who_Is_Alpha said on April 20, 2010 at 2:58 p.m.

Well im pretty stoked about this tournament mode, seems perfect for a series that has almost perfected fighting games with online play. Im just hoping that the tournament mode doesnt lag along with the endless battle, it seems like most of the modes just multiply the chances of lag so they'll just best be played with friends only.

#33
Ztv said on April 20, 2010 at 3:02 p.m.

nah i was only messing paradoxx

no harm intended =)

Lolento said on April 20, 2010 at 3:11 p.m.

Looks really nice, but I must say 8 competitors is a surprisingly low limit.

This game keeps getting better. BTW, check with your store where you pre-ordered it from, or other stores in your area. A few Gamestops are doing Midnight launches. It's kinda last minute, but if Eventhubs wants the info we can start posting store in our area that are doing midnight launches and relay the info here or a thread dedicated to it. If you haven't reserved it yet, or want to place your reserve at a store that is midnight launching, a list might help.

Here's where I'm picking it up Monday night:
Gamestop (across from Wal-Mart)
11241 East Colonial Drive
Orlando, FL 32817-4562
(407) 382-3990

Why no Bison avatar?

#37
Gamogo said on April 20, 2010 at 4:45 p.m.

I'm curious if these additions (including team play, etc) support OFFLINE play.

It would make organising tournaments so much easier.

#38
Pusha_T said on April 20, 2010 at 4:48 p.m.

Wow only 6 days left for US release.
only 9 days left for European release,

LOL I remember when I used to come on here and everyone was like aaaaaah, 4 months and now were only 6 days away. lol.

Am I the only one who'll miss Championship mode? It's so much fun!

#44
abdelmajidtolba said on April 20, 2010 at 6:58 p.m.

i really wanted a grad point exactly like arcade version so we can have grand master and master like japan.the feature that allows you to record matvhes or watch current match is a genuis idea since people can learn from the mistakes of their friend aand at the same time find weaknesses on an opponent.mark my world this SSF4 gonna THE SF we all waiting for .cheers

@44:

Championship mode is fun, but playing with friends tops that by so much.

#47
KDash said on April 20, 2010 at 7:18 p.m.

Finally a proper tournament mode.
not that load of crap that was championship mode for vanilla IV that was basically win a few times in a row to get more points.
This is the true tourney mode, just like HDR.

Max 8 people kinda sucks but better than nothing.

even though we have to wait a while for the mode, it is FREE!!

and everything else that comes with it from the start like replays(though no offline replays) and team battle and endless battle. Mad Hype.

Pick your main and start practicing.

#48
KDash said on April 20, 2010 at 7:20 p.m.

And Halo is never anything different.
God of War has story and crazy weapons and crazy ways to kill the bosses and anyone who says that God of War III isn't the most beautiful thing on any platform needs their eyes checked.

Guess what I gave them that idea to add in brackets for Tournament Mode you should thank me!

Yea why no dictator avatar? D:<<<<
I hope you can play teambattle & tourney's offline.

#51
Blanks said on April 20, 2010 at 8:56 p.m.

@47
It's sad but none of my friends even play video games. Maybe it's time to make video game friends... And CRUSH them in tournament mode! It'll be aight :P

RA_MO said on April 21, 2010 at 3:26 a.m.

I have a noobish question all...

Is it wrong to want to hold this game in your arms and whisper sweet nothings into the side of its label?

Perhaps it will think of me as much as I think of it... <3
