Yun and Yang likely in Super Street Fighter 4 arcade

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • August 31, 2010 at 8:17 p.m. PDT
A few new images surfaced showing an outline of Yun's skateboard and Yang's skates. You may have seen these before, they were originally rumored to be fake, but as you can see from the scans of Arcadia Magazine, they're quite real.

These images likely mean Yun and Yang will be added to Super Street Fighter 4's arcade release as playable fighters. The skateboard and roller skates have long been associated with these two — in their artwork and during in-game sequences in the Street Fighter 3 series.

These outlines signal the start of the "hints" the Japanese SSF4 development team said would be coming our way concerning who the new characters are.

Also, current rumors claim there will be six new fighters total, so there may be more announcements — or hints — coming in the near future.

A huge thanks goes to Dan for sending in the images.

BoSox06 said on August 31, 2010 at 8:37 p.m.

Never really used either of these two in Third Strike, but I'm interested in using at least one of these guys. I still need some Alex and Q to get really excited.

Cardinal said on August 31, 2010 at 8:38 p.m.

I personally hated both and I think it's a waste of two character slots.

SakuraFan said on August 31, 2010 at 8:41 p.m.

Bah, two useless characters... Rolento, R.Mika, Karin and Elena should've been there...

Might as well delete gen and Fei Long now.

Arrancar said on August 31, 2010 at 8:45 p.m.

Hopefully they won't gimp them like /cry Makoto. I don't we'll see many Chun/Yun or Ken/Yun fights more like Ryu/Yun
or Rufus/Yun, Yang is good just don't see him enough.

your not hopefully there will be 6 characters in there but definitely not yun and yang why use them 2 slots for two of the similar like characters

#18
SpiceyChicken said on August 31, 2010 at 8:55 p.m.

Don't mind them at all.

As long as Alex is in there then I don't care who's in. Still hoping to see some sort of clue for Q though.

HukGuay said on August 31, 2010 at 9:07 p.m.

these guys will fail in ssf4 without their 3s specials and speed. they will take so much damage and deal so little. I would rather stick with rufus.

#25
Tru1yOdd said on August 31, 2010 at 9:15 p.m.

Both character are probably gonna work in this game. Both fast, have dive kicks, good pokes, good air priority what else do you need.

Oh and I'm guessing Genei Jin is going to be a super at which point it going to be guaranteed damage the same way it was in 3S.

This is a bit of a disappointment. I really hope they are adding 6 chars and at least 2 of them are karen and rolento. I much prefer the alpha cast over most of the sf3 cast.

#31
Professor_Icepick said on August 31, 2010 at 9:25 p.m.

Ugh...both of them? I'd be willing to accept one, but both?

Guess we can kiss some of my favorite characters like Karin, Sodom or my favorite of all, Elena, goodbye.

RA_MO said on August 31, 2010 at 9:36 p.m.

For all the people who are disappointed about the chances of yun and yang making it in, just a friendly reminder... According to what they said.. There are still four more characters left to be added? Rolento still has a shot. Just be happy that more characters are coming. :)

terrible waste of 2 slots

NANI!!!!! MASAKA!!!! 如何して DESU KA!!!!!

Not Elena again? This is unreal; I do not know what to say....

IF there are 6 as stated, I REALLY hope ELENA is one of them. Something seems funny about this, but whateva. Yun and Yang cognrats. STILL ELENA we need her PERIOD.

#39
Amnesiac said on August 31, 2010 at 9:38 p.m.

Well this is utterly stupid.
Two wasted slots.
We can kiss goodbye to two of the following: Alex, Hugo, Q, Elena, R. Mika, or Rolento.

R. Mika probably not though...

@#21 Cornwad

Gen actually died inbetween the two games. What you see in Super is a stunt double who can't hit a mantis MK with his foot, or charge enough meter to compensate his limited tools. Heck, he can't even jump right.

i hope they wont add these two. id rather have Chrono or Serge join the cast.

#45
Tru1yOdd said on August 31, 2010 at 9:45 p.m.

What are all of you complaining about.

6 characters = 3 3rd strike 3 Alpha

Alpha = Rolento, Karin, R. Mika why? Because thats the whole Alpha cast right there, who else are you gonna add?!

3S = Now here I can see you guys complaining but its probably gonna be: Alex, Yun and Yang.

Maybe there waisted slots and you can add characters the probably wouldnt work (Urien) or characters that would probably just gonna suck and you all would forget about them (Elena, Q, Hugo).

Yall wanted Makoto, yall got her. How many of you play her?

#46
gluemchen said on August 31, 2010 at 9:46 p.m.

Yun and Yang can go w*nk each other. Wtf were they thinking.... Aslong as R.Mika and K.Kanzuki is in i don`t give a s*it!!!

#47
KanyeWest said on August 31, 2010 at 9:47 p.m.

R.Mika is so bad I take back my Yun and Yang suck comments

#48
Manicman said on August 31, 2010 at 9:48 p.m.

They are gonna add both of them for sure guys just make peace with it already. It makes since because yun and yang are just head swaps like ryu ken and akuma. It's way easier for them to add a couple clone characters than 4 or 6 brand new ones.

#49
darko_p86 said on August 31, 2010 at 9:49 p.m.

and i hope they dont add elena either. theres something about long freakish legs that just...aint right

@ #20 No, they're really not the same, at all... If you've ever played 3S, you would know this...

#21 No, they're not the same, either... They're similar, but the differences far outweigh the similarities...

RA_MO said on August 31, 2010 at 9:54 p.m.

It really does not matter what any one says in the form of insults... They seem to be coming whether you like it it or not. You are not obligated to use these guys. They are just two more people to beat up on, if you are that good that is.

In my opinion, it really does not matter who they decide to release next, some of you will like them, some will not. I guess this will never end but it just seems as a waste of you life to be upset over this. There have been many things with this game many of you did not like but you grew up as a whole and got over it... more or less. Just stick to who you know and let the competition grow. :)

#54
Jerry said on August 31, 2010 at 10:02 p.m.

@64?! No one?! Really? Why don't you go over to the Unity Forums and tell me how many people wanted the brothers.

#55
bluAsterisk said on August 31, 2010 at 10:08 p.m.

I'm sure I wasn't the only one that wanted Yun and Yang. I honestly didn't like the idea of Adon and Cody, but I learned to just accept it. Hopefully you guys will do the same.

#56
Jerry said on August 31, 2010 at 10:16 p.m.

Oh yes, quite a bit of people want Retsu, as well.

#57
Nero_TXK said on August 31, 2010 at 10:17 p.m.

Well there had to be a significant amount of people who wanted them in if Capcom is putting them in dont you think?

#58
chickenwings said on August 31, 2010 at 10:21 p.m.

WHat i find hilarious about all the character requests is that nobody uses them anyway. People begged for third strike characters and they added them, but i go online and most of my fights are versus ryu. What happen to all the dudley and makato fans?

#59
Nero_TXK said on August 31, 2010 at 10:22 p.m.

^^^ Exactly :]

liluoke said on August 31, 2010 at 10:23 p.m.

personally, i loved yun and yang so i'm pretty hype. although alex would be great.

do you really think they would put Q in lol? he's cool but he's kind of a weird character to put in. i'd expect alex, r.mika, and i have no idea who the other two might be.

Ermac, while Alex, Relento, Q, etc. may have won the polls, the fact still remains that quite a few people want them or else they wouldn't have added them... Also, the character request thread on Capcom Unity has basically turned into a Retsu thread...

#64
Manicman said on August 31, 2010 at 10:29 p.m.

Alex is going to be in the game. He was the main character of the street fighter 3 series. He was already in TvC plus with 3rd strike re-release announced it makes since that he would be included.

#65
Jerry said on August 31, 2010 at 10:31 p.m.

With that said... BRING ON RETSU (and hopefully Oro)

#66
Professor_Icepick said on August 31, 2010 at 10:32 p.m.

@#78, if they add X, I'll make those people going crazy about C.Viper in MvC3 look positively sane.

I'm pretty much expecting the worst at this point. The new six are gonna be Yun, Yang, Ingrid, Urien, Twelve and worst of all, Sean.

..on the plus side, think of the money I'll save on DLC!

Dan_CiTi said on August 31, 2010 at 10:44 p.m.

Someone would rather have a deliberate Guile clone over the Lee bros.? Oh my god...regardless, this doesn't mean both Yun and Yang are in as individual characters. It could be Yang is an alt costume/color like in SFIII:NG. OR like in CvS2 when during one of Yun's supers Yang comes in and "assists" him. Who knows? Yun and Yang are fun, well designed characters than have elements similar to existing characters in the game but can certainly stand on their own and be effective in the SSF4 system.

I was hoping for Yun/Alex/Elena for the new 3S characters, but Yun/Yang/Elena or Alex would be fine too. Let's hope Karin gets in though.

#72
Adrock said on August 31, 2010 at 10:45 p.m.

if having charlie in this game makes him a clone
then get akuma, and ken out, hell practically gouken and dan too. they can add some tweaks idiot
don't start pulling that charlie is a clone bullsht

#73
yudhiyou said on August 31, 2010 at 10:47 p.m.

So Yun and Yang are confirmed. So the rest are : Karin, R.Mika, and Rolento are waiting for confirmation. I don't know the last one. May be Hugo or Alex.

#74
Dan_CiTi said on August 31, 2010 at 10:50 p.m.

The fact that people want Charlie or any SF1 characters blow my mind. The SF1 characters that aren't in SSF4 already(Ryu, Ken, Sagat, Adon, Gen) are either ass or have been transformed into other characters effectively. Like Mike became Balrog/Boxer and Geki became Vega/Claw. Eagle and Birdie returned in other games as well, and they're fine but I don't want them returning over other characters either.

you idiot
that game was the father of all of these great games
they're way better than who you want in the game
i'm down for rolento, karin, alex, Q, elena, and retsu. (Because fans want him more than most other char.)
of course i want charlie but i'm not going to get mad when if he's not in
because i want the community to be more happy than dissapointed unlike this bullsht news
hell maybe charlie will make it in, considering no one wants him and that's what capcom is doing

Tru1yOdd said on August 31, 2010 at 11:04 p.m.

Heres what I dont get. Most of you are complaining that you guys x character in. Same thing happened before Super came out "I want x characters in," and " wheres x character." There 35 characters all ready in the game you know what characters I see online, nothing but Ryu, Ken, Bison, Akuma, Guile. Thats it.

You guys complain complain and complain but when it comes down to it yall just gonna play these characters for a month then go back to Ryu. I dont get it.

You guys are saying Capcom is bullsh!ting you again like they did with the Cammy Ibuki thing. How many of you actually play Cammy?! More importantly how many of you actually play Ibuki?!

My advice to yall is just stop whining about what characters are in. Most of you are gonna realize that these character are not as easy to win with as Ryu or Ken and go back to them.

Yum and Yang are in lets move on with our lives.

#84
Sentry said on August 31, 2010 at 11:07 p.m.

stop crying ermac.
yun is the most popular character in 3s, he was in cvs2.
I think those polls is really funny. everyone asks for karin, mika, alex and hugo, but no one plays karin or mika in alpha 3 or hugo or alex in 3s. they play yun and yang in 3s. capcom knows this.
genei jin ftw.

You people are mindless. Truly odd makes a great post about why you all just need to shut the hell up with the complaining and the response is "you're gay."

"Lmbao"

Idiots. Keep complaining. Hopefully capcom will continue to pretend that they're listening then ultimately do whatever the hell they want like always.

The worst thing any developer can do is mindlessly follow the community because in general communities, expecially online communities, are full of dumbasses.

YES! I wanted Q, Elena, Yun, Yang, and Urien. Atleast I got the twins! Haterz are just gonna hate. Lovers are just gonna love. That's how life works. Get over it people. You won't see me having a fit over r mika or Karin or rolento just because I don't like them. Charlie I would moan like crazy because that is the definition of clone.

No matter the ferocity of your anger or contempt for me, there is nothing you can do to hurt me. You lost that right the instant I stared death in the face and turned my back. You are powerless against me now. I live to fight. Death's embrace is my ultimate destiny. As long as blood courses through my veins, I shall not succumb to the likes of you! I will not allow the putrid dead to so much as touch me!"-Gen

Well seeing as all SF2 characters are already in, I think the new characters will be split up between 3 from Alpha and 3 from 3rd Strike. Which is a shame because I wanted Q to be in the game but he's less popular than Alex.

#97
RyuHado said on September 1, 2010 at 12:38 a.m.

man..all this losers here saying "Omg its yun" or "i main cammy" and all this crap are not working no more. you just say this crap to make yourselfs look cool or something. like "if i say that i main someboy else than Ryu, Ken, Chun li people will think im a pro..." YOU GUYS SUCK! And that doesnt count the ones that ACTUALLY use them. Stop bashing the shotos around. You f*****g scrubs! im had it with you losers! If they anounce E.Ryu or Garuda (not likely) or Charlie people, REAL fans would be more excited! but then comes the new srubs saying: "no i wanted karin, hugo and Elena".. im not sure if there mothers know this characters.. damn. Im just glad Capcom is putting more effort in SSF4 instead just leaving it and just concentrate on Street Fighter x Tekken. A personal message from me "f@@@ off shotos haters and generally to all Haters!! Open your bedrooms door. you'll se a world out there. GET A LIFE!"

#98
Addict said on September 1, 2010 at 12:51 a.m.

Ive got to say that IM SUPER excited that my boys YUN and YANG are coming to SSF4. I don't care if there bad for god sakes i main Vega. I mean from SF4 to SSF4 and play Dudley and have to say that ppl are bitching about the 3rd Strike characters because there not good and s--t. But thats because those aholes dont put the time in those characters. I have no problem beating Ryu's and Ken's with him. Plus my Friend mains Makoto and still kicks everyones ass with her. There just harder to use than others. Yun and Yang have great Pokes and specials.
