BBFC confirms Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition for UK, release date June 24

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • March 28, 2011 at 9:39 a.m. PDT
BBFC confirms Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition for UK, release date June 24 A report this morning by EuroGamer through the BBFC, listed Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition having a release date of June 24, 2011 in the United Kingdom.

June 24 this year is a Friday, and DLC release dates are typically on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so this points to another disc-based release, although it's possible Capcom will offer the update in two flavors.

The BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) passed the game with no cuts and it has 6 minutes and 49 seconds worth of cut-scenes. The BBFC is an organization, funded by the film industry and responsible for the classification in the UK. It classifies videos, DVDs and some video games.

Earlier this month, the Korea’s Game Rating Board rated SSF4 Arcade Edition. A notable thing about the listing is Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition was rated twice, which is typically done in cases with multi platform releases on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. In cases of a PC release, a third rating is posted.

Oh. This new content being released as "Arcade Edition" instead of any other name is bad news. It means we'll get the exact same content of SSF4's arcade version. In other words, two new characters + rebalance = not anymore.

You'd have to be stupid to even of thought it would be..

#15
Creeper said on March 28, 2011 at 9:18 a.m.

I really really hope this isn't a disc release. Super gave us 10 new characters, a second ultra for every single character essentially reinventing every matchup in the game, and 5 new stages for a discount price. Arcade Edition has... 4 new characters. Arcade Edition needs to be DLC, or they need to give us more content. People were receptive to Super as a disc release because it was actually worth it (as DLC, $5 × 10 = $50 for characters alone¹). Ono mentioned the possibility of DLC and an optional disc release a la Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition that had redeem codes for Arcade Edition characters and every costume.

¹Standard established by Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but probably accurate.

#16
brusora said on March 28, 2011 at 9:19 a.m.

@15: I don't belive Capcom is gonna force everybody to buy a new disc, but giving the option to would be a smart move. If they don't, they're gonna piss off everybody that believed them when they said SSFV was going to be the last SF4 disc.

We know that's most likely not true, but as of now they've got to stick to what they've said UNLESS they're giving a HUGE amount of new content (which we know is not the case of AE).

Quoting #17: "Ono mentioned the possibility of DLC and an optional disc release a la Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition that had redeem codes for Arcade Edition characters and every costume."

Now THAT makes sense.

#20
HKsupastar said on March 28, 2011 at 9:22 a.m.

Apparently, on the Japanese AE site, there are 7 possible spaces left for fighters after they just added Evil Ryu. So after Oni, we might HOPE for 6 additional fighters from a disc based version of AE on console. I would not mind that if extra characters were the case....bring on the disc! Of course at a discounted price!

#21
triplefierce said on March 28, 2011 at 9:23 a.m.

its difficult to get hyped for this, knowing that alot of people playing AE and Ono himself are saying that the twins are kind of OP'd. although it will be day 1 for me.

#22
zombiebrian said on March 28, 2011 at 9:23 a.m.

given that mvc3 cost £10 for two char and the balance patch caused some minor screen freeze issues. So add the four known charcters that we know of thats £20.
It's also likely to be the cut price deal we got for super at £25 so there is no real sense in complaining. Never mind the unkown stuff patches can cause.

#25
DarkCyclone said on March 28, 2011 at 9:27 a.m.

The only way I'd buy another disc is if it were no more than £5. Unless they're planning on adding alot more stages, more characters (it's presumed as 8 more additions to the roster) and an even better online mode, then there's no way I could buy that

#26
alfarin said on March 28, 2011 at 9:29 a.m.

I'll happily bet that this is a DLC and disc release - DLC online, but also an in-store "install disc" that comes with extras like the new alt. costumes for Yun/Yang/E.Ryu/Oni, themes and gamerpics along with the DLC, very much like EPIC games and the Gears of War 2 all fronts collection and Bethesda and Fallout 3's expansions.

Also, don't get your panties in a bunch! This isn't official yet

#27
Inmortal2k10 said on March 28, 2011 at 9:31 a.m.

i prefer a disc release (you can take the disc everywhere) but in this case will be in two flavors dlc and disc release so is good for everyone. :)

#28
gtfopanda said on March 28, 2011 at 9:36 a.m.

Disc release for me, I still value physical copies of the game.

#29
NABFear said on March 28, 2011 at 9:37 a.m.

@#2 Mark_Morrison I don't think MVC3 will die, i think once its been patched and word gets out that it is a far more balanced game the hype will revive again, don't forget this game is hyped coz of the legacy MVC2 left behind. Thats just IMO though. I personally love the game and its crazy OTT flashy looks.

@#22 HKsupastar 6 possible spaces left?! If they fill them 6 other spaces then its worth an entire new disc. As for 4 new characters and huge "Balanced/Purposefully Unbalanced" gameplay, its not worth a new disc instead of DLC.

#30
Psycho said on March 28, 2011 at 9:38 a.m.

disc release would be the worst move ever, no one will buy that on the casual side, so DLC is the way to go, a cheap DLC that is.

denaycous_dee85 said on March 28, 2011 at 9:42 a.m.

Hope it will be different from the AE???? Just dont wanna play the same thing as arcade because it is arcade. Show some love for the console players other then a release date. Did some one say no nerfs included. (JUST KIDDING)How about more bonus stages and stages as well. Theres two more slots, make it four since theres two ryus and akumas. Maybe alittle more characters. Costumes included, even new ones. Maybe a story challenge mode to unlock more titles and emblems. Oh some returning favorite stages like vegas cage, sagats stage with the goddess statue behind him, hondas sumo bathroom stage, rmikas wrestling ring. Maybe 5 additional taunts, more color unlocks, hopefully a championship mode. I dont think im being to greedy, its just consumer demands since this will be another disc based game and most likely the last. Just saying capcom end it with a huge, enormous bang. Street fighter fan since 1991. My first fighting game was sf1 and sf2turbo. IL gladly pay any price. And thats from the heart. Disc or dlc!

#33
denaycous_dee85 said on March 28, 2011 at 9:49 a.m.

Dont think imma buy these new costume packs since it will most likely be in AE. Just my opinion.

#34
Chaide said on March 28, 2011 at 9:53 a.m.

I seriously hope it's a dual release (Disc AND DLC), similar to what Bungie did with Map Packs.. before they started fragmenting Halo on the 360.

It would make sense for people without broadband connections, or people who would prefer to have another fancy looking game case lying around. They could buy their physical copies, and people with no patience such as myself can just purchase it digitally.

If it is indeed going to be a disc only release, then I'll be disappointed. But that's also assuming we're only getting 4 new characters. Capcom is in a good position to pave the road in favor of the consumer on this one.

Valve does a fantastic job keeping TF2 up to date with their business model, and it's still remaining profitable to this day with no signs of stopping. It's a compeltely different game from release at this point, and how many times did I have to buy it? Once.

#35

If we got 10 extra characters for ssf4 then we can expect some more! Disc for me if get extra stages, sodom and rolento and ssf4 pricing. Big ups.

Grimmjow316 said on March 28, 2011 at 10:07 a.m.

Intersting they haven't started hyping AE since Mortal Kombat is looming on the horizon.

#39
SnakeX said on March 28, 2011 at 10:12 a.m.

It'll be dual. The AE content is small enough to do as DLC, and then they'll have a "Gold" Edition much like RE5 as mentioned above for those that prefer everything on disk.

And those of you thinking we're getting more characters: Stop getting your hopes up. We're not getting any more. Stop looking for things that aren't there, there are no blank character spots on the japanese site. They're just empty spaces and nothing more.

#40
RandomJohn said on March 28, 2011 at 10:21 a.m.

People are saying the Japanese AE site looks to have slots for six additional characters after Oni and E Ryu are included. If those slots are indeed for more characters to come (along with buffs and nerfs), then yes, it's worth putting on another disc. However if it's just the four that are announced / leaked, Capcom is being greedy and stupid to put that little content on a separate disc. It can be easily done like MvC3 on DLing the characters (with a price tag) and patches to correct glitches.

#41
Fightingfan69 said on March 28, 2011 at 10:22 a.m.

Eh. All I want is the balance changes. I could care less for the characters that I am not remotely interested in. Maybe with the exception of Yang. I don't play shotos. On the other hand if they had Alex or Karin then........ I would be there day 1.

This is NOT in time for EVO. The version cut off date was listed as June 1. Whichever version is available by June 1 is what is being played.

#44
Raven said on March 28, 2011 at 10:27 a.m.

If it's gonna be disc released, they're going to give us more characters and stages and possibly new features. A new disc with 4 new characters is not worth our time or their time because releasing these discs (and the marketing) cost a lot of money. So...if it's disc released, I'm betting besides Yun/Yang/E. Ryu/O. Akuma, we might get 6 additional characters with maybe 3 - 5 new stages.

Now that worth a disc release, otherwise DLC is sufficient. But the more characters that show up, more likely it won't be DLC, because that's a lot of data to transfer. =P

Thing is, if we get something else, what's it gonna be?

In terms of characters, I'd like: Rolento/Karin/Q/Alex/Urien
So if anyone else makes it, I'm betting on some of them.

#45
boobee_cakes said on March 28, 2011 at 10:30 a.m.

If it's anything like RE5 Gold Edition, there will be a disk option, and the option to download it as well. Don't get your panties in a bunch folks!

Plus it can also be like Lost Planet Colonies, as it can be labeled as Greatest Hits/Platinum Hits and sold for like $20.
I doubt they will charge a whole $60 or rather $40 for it.

Either way, I'm confident either option will not break the bank.

#46
sfNOX said on March 28, 2011 at 10:31 a.m.

Useless charater, we already have akuma(and akuma is even already better because of his demon flip).

In addition, Ono mentioned the twins were designed to be overpowered. Well comes DLC AE, I doubt that'll be the case. DLC AE is confirmed to be released at the end of June. By then, which is eight months after its released in arcades, I have a gut feeling the twins will be nerfed. There will be enough complaints to Capcom that the twins will be nerfed. People managed to bi*ch enough to Capcom about Sentinel in MvC3, I'm sure it'll happen to the twins also haha.

#50
RandomJohn said on March 28, 2011 at 10:45 a.m.

@45:

In this case, SSF4 at Evo 2011 will be the same as last year. Daigo ad his Ryu, jwong with rufus, tokido with akuma, etc. The only different is if any of Canada's top players will show up...like air, d-bag jsmasters, etc.

#54
gtfopanda said on March 28, 2011 at 10:56 a.m.

@ 48

Evil Ryu should have some decent close game pressure with his stomp, and he can do normal xx tatsu xx srk FADC Ultra for massive damage. Also, he seems to have a nice kara throw, and his dive kick seems to link easier then Akuma's.

AeriALs said on March 28, 2011 at 11:50 a.m.

They just needa nerf Yun's stupid ex-dash punch. It's a free(well 1 meter, but yun builds so ridiculously fast), and his mediumx3 into dp is too damaging and fairly easy to execute. Yun/Yang need less active frames on their palm, damage reduction too, and maybe a reduction in recovery for the opponent if they get a command grab. Other than that I think just because they are fairly well rounded doesnt mean they need the nerfbat that hard. I would like to main a half-decent Yang when it hits consoles, so nerfing him hard would make me sad :(

I am a little slow today, is this discussing console AE or UK receiving the actual Arcade Machine for AE. Pardon my ignorance on the subject.

Thanks in advance, all my fellow Sagat players that grinded it out with Gat, it's gonna feel like such a level up for him. Improved all of his tough matches with better TK's and TU. Still gonna have a tough time against Viper, Akuma and Sim. The twins so far can be handled if fought smart.

HKsupastar said on March 28, 2011 at 1:33 p.m.

I think everyone will agree that the hardcore SF fans will buy this disc-based or DLC-based as long as its priced reasonably close to SSF4.

Now, the real answer is if Capcom is willing to do fans service and give us what we are looking for to fill us up till SFxTekken. SSF4 was an awesome sequel to SF4, but Capcom please give us AE on console with the following:

1) Yun/Yang/Evil Ryu/Oni Akuma
2) Up to 6 more characters from previous SF Alpha and Third Strike editions.
3) "Championship mode" from SF4. That's a instant buy if they bring that back.
4) More stages!!!! Especially homage to the old SF2 ones!
5) Better online play
6) Throw in bonus taunts(11 and 12) and costumes color versions(13 and 14).
7) Event mode like MvC3 with challenges to unlock trophies and special items!

That's a big list, but if Capcom adds all that, I would not hesitate to buy this disc-based at $50..even $60. And I will think most hardcore SF fans would agree with me.

#86
HKsupastar said on March 28, 2011 at 1:34 p.m.

...and of course, another balance to the game to remove the strength of Yun and Yang. And give these nerfs a break!

MilnerWins said on March 28, 2011 at 3:38 p.m.

simple question (and Im not gonna look though all the comments to see if it has been answered) If all the balance updates are applied in AE....: Online match: someone who has AE vs someone who didnt buy it....what version will each player be using? Or will the update happen regardless of whether you buy it. because if your only buying the 4 new characters then big deal...

skeptical said on March 28, 2011 at 5:12 p.m.

My guess is it will be a $20 dlc release, with a full retail release for those that don't own ssf4 already. I'm not expecting new characters or levels, just some balance updates. While 4 new levels and 2 new characters would be nice, I just don't see that happening in reality.
