Arcade select screen for Super Street Fighter 4 shows two open slots

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • July 22, 2010 at 10:02 p.m. PDT
Update: Another screen shot of the character select screen was added to this story. It shows a bit more of the screen so you can see how much room Capcom has to play with currently.

Ryan "Gootecks" Gutierrez pointed out a new screen shot that popped up on Twitter showing two more open slots on the Super Street Fighter 4 arcade selection screen.

This backs up the flyer that was posted the other day which teased at new challengers coming to the game.

Thanks also to R4C2010, Deimlos, Alayoub, GCLeague, and RodneyT for sending this over.

Rolento And Hugo?

Deimlos said on July 22, 2010 at 10:10 p.m.

Personally, I'm hoping for Elena and Rolento. Elena seems like she would work really well in the SFIV system. Rolento... well, he's just awesome, haha.

One male, one female. One Alpha, one 3s. Mind you, I'd love to see Geki show up... or more new faces. I'm sure we'll find out soon!

It's going to be one of the ARIKA characters. Get ready to have your minds blown.

"YOU BETTER GET READY STREET FIGHTERACS, BECAUSE WHAT'CA GONNA DO!? WHAT'CA GONNA DO, WHEN THE MIGHT OF THE HYPERBOMB RUNS WILD ON YOU!?!?"

...if you don't get the joke, Alex is suppose to be loosely based on, um, Hulk Hogan... "COUGH"

I SOO agree with Trauma213! GaGa will kill everyone!! Lol, but really....I want Karin!

#18
ThinkJurgen said on July 22, 2010 at 10:19 p.m.

Rolento and R. MIka, without a doubt.

Alex is the main of 3 and Charlie should be dead by now. The only other two that it could be is Hugo and Elena just out of popular demand.

#19
LiangHuBBB said on July 22, 2010 at 10:20 p.m.

Rolento will be 100% in and the second one might be Charlie.
But I guess there will be even more new additional spots added from time to time because it seems like this is the big announcement Ono was talking about. :)

#20
yes4me said on July 22, 2010 at 10:20 p.m.

Urien and probably another SF3 character or Mika.

#21
AG311 said on July 22, 2010 at 10:21 p.m.

I have a feeling it's gonna be two more new characters (new to the entire series), but that's only because they placed them near Juri and Hakan. They could be oldies...maybe from SFI?

#22
Amnesiac said on July 22, 2010 at 10:22 p.m.

In accordance to the rumors, that's Alex and Rolento.

Alex, Hugo, Q, Elena, Charlie, R. Mika, and Rolento have all been released as avatars on PSN a few days ago.
It's not just a coincidence.
I am pretty sure these^^^ are our new challengers.
^___^
Hooray for ALEX!
You can't escape!

#23
trplem19 said on July 22, 2010 at 10:26 p.m.

its r.mika n hugo

#24
Megadautilus said on July 22, 2010 at 10:28 p.m.

Elena and Rolento.

#25
Jaf said on July 22, 2010 at 10:31 p.m.

It's gonna be R.Mika because the game needs a female grappler, and probably Rolento. Personally though I think the Final Fight team needs to be completed with the addition of Maki.

#26
Smorgasboard said on July 22, 2010 at 10:34 p.m.

I'm more curious as to how these characters will be updated into the console release.

#27
mrdrofficer said on July 22, 2010 at 10:35 p.m.

The rumor said there would be Alex and Rolento shown off at Comic Con. Good news for everyone. Rumor, yes. Taken off Shoryuken? Yes.

#28
Creeper said on July 22, 2010 at 10:36 p.m.

Oh goood it's pretty much confirmed, HYPE. I don't even care if it's just R. Mika and Rolento, this is still fantastic.

#29
Kuza21 said on July 22, 2010 at 10:41 p.m.

I'm SO hoping for Karin!

#30
valken said on July 22, 2010 at 10:42 p.m.

Alex, Urien, Rolento, Oro
Two of this characters and i will be happy

#31
Amar said on July 22, 2010 at 10:42 p.m.

I have a feeling they are completely new characters.

#32
LiangHuBBB said on July 22, 2010 at 10:43 p.m.

Plz Charlie ftw.

#33
akillyz said on July 22, 2010 at 10:44 p.m.

Elena and Charlie, nuff said.

#34
mrdrofficer said on July 22, 2010 at 10:46 p.m.

People keep referancing this playstation store avatar thing, yet I can't find it ANYWHERE on the internet. Someone please post a link or proof or something.

Still, those are the perfect characters to add seven of. except Oro instead of Q.

#35
LiangHuBBB said on July 22, 2010 at 10:46 p.m.

These avatars were only on the US PS store.

#36
AdmiralLee said on July 22, 2010 at 10:48 p.m.

Boss Akuma and Gouken are selectable. You heard it here first!

#37
Felecorr said on July 22, 2010 at 10:48 p.m.

Elena and Rolento.
Possibly R Mika, but Elena and Rolento were the ones that were being pushed for.

#38
Sakura said on July 22, 2010 at 10:49 p.m.

people really want charlie? Really?

just play guile...

let's mix it up a little...

#39
Felecorr said on July 22, 2010 at 10:51 p.m.

Forgot to add:

I would personally prefer a defensive/counter-hit character (NOT A TURTLE CHARACTER) That uses a style like Judo or Hapkido.

#40
LiangHuBBB said on July 22, 2010 at 10:53 p.m.

Ken is different compared to Ryu right?
Same goes for Charlie compared to Guile.

#41
Otitis said on July 22, 2010 at 10:53 p.m.

Rolento was always my favorite SF character... everyone is saying he's rumored to be DLC but I dont wanna get my hopes up yet, lol... waiting 1 more day and we'll see

#42
Deimlos said on July 22, 2010 at 10:54 p.m.

Figured I'd throw this out there;

This is the first of three location tests, right? So, perhaps they're hyping two new characters this time around, and they'll reveal a new character at each of the remaining two location tests.

Just a thought!

#43
jme said on July 22, 2010 at 10:59 p.m.

*rolento comes in and smacks you all with his staff*

#44
ThinkJurgen said on July 22, 2010 at 10:59 p.m.

@ #41

Charlie is awesome, compared to Guile, Charlie is better...and cooler. I know thats not just my opinion. haha

#45
LiangHuBBB said on July 22, 2010 at 10:59 p.m.

Skullomania and D.Dark would also be pretty cool imo.

#46
Flawless said on July 22, 2010 at 11:05 p.m.

I'm pretty sure its Rolento and Alex

#47
Lets_Fight_Like_Gentlemen said on July 22, 2010 at 11:05 p.m.

Hopefully they will be brand new characters given that their spot is right beside other new characters.

*Super duper speculation*

#48
brujometal said on July 22, 2010 at 11:06 p.m.

rolento and hugo for sure!

#49
Creeper said on July 22, 2010 at 11:13 p.m.

@41
If they give him Sonic Boom (obviously), his dash from Alpha 3, Moonsault Slash from Marvel 2, make Somersault Shell much lower priority than Flash Kick, and keep Crossfire Blitz, Sonic Break, and Somersault Justice as his super/ultras, I think he'd be a much more original and offensive-oriented character.

#50
Sakura said on July 22, 2010 at 11:13 p.m.

@#43

Ryu and Ken are the faces of street fighter...

charlie is not...not even close...

I'll say it again...go play guile.

#51
ThinkJurgen said on July 22, 2010 at 11:18 p.m.

You could argue that Charlie is the main character of the Alfa series...

#52
Jojounin said on July 22, 2010 at 11:22 p.m.

I hope it's Alex and Rolento.

#53
cadnexus said on July 22, 2010 at 11:25 p.m.

Elena, and a brand new character is my guess.

#54
xiixserj3xiix said on July 22, 2010 at 11:25 p.m.

what!!!!!!!!!!! i hope its more done two new characters.

#55
Kef_64 said on July 22, 2010 at 11:28 p.m.

Hope to see Rolento.
But now that I think about it that rumor over SRK could be truth and in fact those 2 characters are Rolento and Alex which Ono will show at Comic-con. :S confused.

Btw guys, anybody knows if there was announcement for the new spiderman game or something about Final Spiderman? Because if there was not than the rumor is fake.

#56
Jaf said on July 22, 2010 at 11:30 p.m.

If Alex makes it I expect KSK to bounce back from Abel-aka-I'm-not-Alex and play as much as he commentates

#57
Ett said on July 22, 2010 at 11:30 p.m.

Those are nice slots for Juni and Juli.

#58
Lolento said on July 22, 2010 at 11:32 p.m.

@#20 ThinkJurgen
Not sure why the main character would be forced to be left out. If anything, it'd make lots of sense for him to join, tying in the two stories and bringing more popularity to III.

Anyway, I don't think it's Alex, the reason being that this game already has a fairly high share of grapplers. Same applies for Hugo, and possibly Mika. At this point, I find it more likely they'd rehash another shoto than bring more grapplers (even though I think the latter add more to the game than the former).

#59
Gbraga said on July 22, 2010 at 11:40 p.m.

#62, it was the final Spider Man world for Shattered Dimensions (4 different Spider Man worlds playable). So it checks, but it was leaked some time earlier, so he could just have thought that it was going to be officialy shown at Comic Con, which is not a very difficult guess.

#60
McBison said on July 22, 2010 at 11:41 p.m.

I want Shin Akuma and Evil Ryu... bad joke...

Well, I hope one is Elena at least. Since those new avatars showed up on PSN, its quite possible that it will be 2 of those characters.

#61
raymk said on July 22, 2010 at 11:42 p.m.

Anyone instead of Q i don't care who just anyone and karin better make it and yun also

#62
Sektah84 said on July 22, 2010 at 11:43 p.m.

oh look at that! the same screen selection as the one on my tv screen right running on my ps3!(minus the 2 spots) i honestly think its a waste of time but in japan dudes will drop money on something they own already more power to em folks i guess. Watch those 2 guys come out in dlc this fall

#63
Kef_64 said on July 22, 2010 at 11:43 p.m.

oh, thanks for the info Gbraga ;)
Anything else that could prove is false/true that was announced today.

#64
VegaBisonAbel said on July 22, 2010 at 11:53 p.m.

@51 yes yes yes

#65
Creeper said on July 22, 2010 at 11:55 p.m.

Everyone is saying it's going to be Alex and Rolento at Comic-Con. Alex's Third Strike stage and Rolento's Alpha 3 stage are both subways. Maybe Alex doesn't like people moving mobile artillery through his neighborhood.

#66
Shadowzz said on July 22, 2010 at 11:56 p.m.

Here's to Yang and Yun!

But my guess is Rolento and Elena as they were the characters that lost in the Super Cut.

#67
DaBakerMann said on July 23, 2010 at midnight

rolento and alex get hype!

#68
OSM said on July 23, 2010 at midnight

Alex and Rolento.

#69
eugabong said on July 23, 2010 at 12:03 a.m.

What if they added 4 more slots (one above and under each of the new ones) and it were 6 characters in total.
alex, elena, yun, rolento, r. mika, charlie?
i hope so :D

#70
mugen2k10 said on July 23, 2010 at 12:16 a.m.

That looks odd. I expect all the remaining room on the select screen will be used for more slots. I hope we get 6 fighters. Elena!!!!!

#71
ShinobiShiranui said on July 23, 2010 at 12:19 a.m.

I say Elena and Rolento as many have said.

Why Elena
She brings diversity plus a great character against Deejay and Juri.
Another note: Elena was barely cut from making an appearance in Super Street Fighter IV, as when Capcom had a poll of which Street Fighter III character's to include, Elena ranked 4th.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_...

Why Rolento
His story is related to Cody and Guy plus is popular with Ono-san

We shall see who they are either way. As the 7 are
Elena, Alex, Rolento, R. Mika, Hugo, Charlie, and I'm hearing Q so let's it this happens =^D

Nippon Ichi!!!!

#78
shinakka said on July 23, 2010 at 12:41 a.m.

the avatars that everyone keeps referring too are for Darkstalkers (Morgan and Felicia), Alpha 3, and 3rd Strike. None of those new avatars are under SSFIV. So I wouldn't assume that that means we are getting 7 characters.

SBeast why do you point that out? all the characters mentioned there are in the game already

#82
Ex_Ein said on July 23, 2010 at 12:53 a.m.

beside hugo who ono said if theres DLC there will be hugo

#83
Johnry said on July 23, 2010 at 12:54 a.m.

Looking at the photo, I suspect that there must be 4 new characters, if not 6, to maintain the symmetry of the character list....

#84
SaikyoRyu said on July 23, 2010 at 12:54 a.m.

@88 Seem more like placeholder pics to me, rather then anything definitive.

Also, Karin and Charlie! Maybe Rolento if not Charlie.

#85
sbeast64 said on July 23, 2010 at 1:04 a.m.

Your right, they are all in except for Hugo which makes me think he will be a likely candidate.

4 more to guess!?!
hmmm...

#90
jackpot69 said on July 23, 2010 at 1:25 a.m.

Elena and a full new character, but i hope they give us at last 4 new fighters (and NO MORE shotos). Right now, only 2 it`s just Mhe :/

#91
Hyperbomb69 said on July 23, 2010 at 1:26 a.m.

One of those better be for Alex! I dont care who else gets in as long as they put Alex in it!!!

ALEX!! ALEX!! ALEX!! ALEX!!

#96
halo said on July 23, 2010 at 2:10 a.m.

A lot of people are suggesting all sorts of fighters but the fact is that Ono said Elena "just missed the cut in SSF IV" so chances are she is going to be in this. Hugo is also a big possibility as well as Rolento

#97
FarkAydeGhil420 said on July 23, 2010 at 2:21 a.m.
