The sound effects to Rolento's rekkas sound really off...

5th Character isn't Retsu. it's the Bison Doll representing August.

sarif2soon said on December 12, 2013 at 5:19 a.m.

Because all of you who "know" who the 5th character is have inside info, right?

No it's not, what makes you think that?
Hopefully not that poster that showed him on it, because that was released in capcom 25th book and nothing was "leaked."

#12
Nukka said on December 12, 2013 at 7:07 a.m.

Hopefully it IS Retsu, or atleast a male character.

Serious question for Capcom: when's Marvel?

jaysenedwinward said on December 12, 2013 at 7:29 a.m.

You seriously want Retsu (old outdated mechanics) as opposed to Santamu(August) with her spear and awesome style??

wBENDERw said on December 12, 2013 at 7:36 a.m.

man i hope its from left field and not any thing anybody wants

(but not a joke character)

#21
mcknight8279109 said on December 12, 2013 at 7:46 a.m.

It's Sakura's friend...kei
She is gonna have a moveset similar to Karin's if not almost identical.
GET HYPE
Well i wish this would happen lol I think we need another female character

#22
djm0001 said on December 12, 2013 at 7:51 a.m.

It's going be strange watching Hugo duck under moves/projectiles when it looks like they're gunna hit him square in the face

#23
ededol2 said on December 12, 2013 at 7:53 a.m.

yes,
no more cammy plz

#24
djm0001 said on December 12, 2013 at 7:56 a.m.

There is no fifth character...

seriously though, the fact that the fifth character isn't appearing at location tests is sort of strange. They must feel that confident in their implementation that the 5th will be a good fit based on what else they're seeing.

My theory is that they have a few potential 5th characters in the works, each of them with a different play style. The location testing is how they're gauging "what the game needs" and will decide which character they'll fully develop and plug into the game based on that.

#25
GiBGUN said on December 12, 2013 at 7:59 a.m.

@1 yeah have you seen Poison's throw animation on Hugo? Her hand goes right through his skin and into his chest haha. Hope they fix dumb looking sh*t like that.

#26
Aqua said on December 12, 2013 at 8:02 a.m.

people obsess so much about the 5th character, it's so annoying. they'll reveal it when they feel like it, sheesh

i'd rather know other things like:
- will the character select screen be changed?
- new online modes? rematch button in 2p lobbies? pass turn button in 3p+ lobbies?
- can replays be saved from offline matches?
etc. etc.

rematch button alone is more hype than the 5th char for me >:P

#27
tsgrimey said on December 12, 2013 at 8:17 a.m.

damn i was just in Taipei...where was this test location held exactly

#28
SAMURAI said on December 12, 2013 at 8:25 a.m.

I want a location test in Belgium or Holland. It's all over the world, but never here.

#29
djm0001 said on December 12, 2013 at 8:29 a.m.

im too lazy to look back in history to find it, but there was a tweet or comment or something posted here stating that Ultra SF4 would have a lot more "unexpected" features built into the game. I'm hoping/guessing this means new menus, minor tweaks to the in-game HUD, re-organized game modes, BP/PP changes, challenge modes, trials, all that good stuff.

For $40 I would expect this to look and feel like a completely new game ( like going from SF4 to SSF4 )

#30
Megatron78 said on December 12, 2013 at 8:31 a.m.

its over isn't it .......

#31
jme said on December 12, 2013 at 8:39 a.m.

5th characters name start with "Y" to spell "HYPER" with the other characters.

Hopefully, the will them at Capcom Cup this weekend. What better than that and we need to test em asap. The feedback from players about the 5th character is more important than the secrecy and anticipation.

Also just as a mode, I hope add a team mode that is like KOF, cvs2 etc. A mode like that should exist in all fighters because its not changing the game. It's just a feature(if this mode is added it should also replace the current team mode we have which sucks balls).

#32
samuraix025 said on December 12, 2013 at 8:42 a.m.

you seriously used a mugen video to make a point?

I don't want a cammy doll, give me retsu he's long over due as playable

#33
CaptainHowdy said on December 12, 2013 at 8:48 a.m.

I hope it's King Cobra Kai. He was interesting before they ditched him for Rufus.

I highly doubt it though :-\.

#34
evosanders said on December 12, 2013 at 8:56 a.m.

they don't have the resources for that, but wishful thinking

#35
Aluppoj said on December 12, 2013 at 9:02 a.m.

It's probably the girl from Balrog's ending.

But I think it'll either be Roxy or New Evil Sakura.

#36
Necreon said on December 12, 2013 at 9:13 a.m.

After CAPCOM announced it's gonna cost me 30 bucks (propably euros which is even more expensive) and gotta wait like ~9 more months before I can play it... I just don't care anymore.

#37
MCZ_Ryu said on December 12, 2013 at 9:23 a.m.

RB is really good. Used to train with Gamerbee. No surprise he won.

#38

nah fith character

i hope the fith character is Venus in Fur =) btw: Catalyst thats some steamy ads =) (like it!) HA

#41
JELIFISH19 said on December 12, 2013 at 9:35 a.m.

It's completely normal. The full roster isn't available during tests most of the time. They also don't use the actual current builds with everything in it. They create builds just for those events. They only show what they're ready to show. They have the 5th character already, just haven't revealed him/her yet.

#42
Existent said on December 12, 2013 at 9:59 a.m.

That's not going to suddenly become funny if you keep saying that.

#43
TheTHCGamer said on December 12, 2013 at 10:36 a.m.

I want this game now but I know it'll be better to wait since CAPCOM will have more time to refine the game. This is going to be a huge update in my book for SFIV and I'm excited to go pick up my copy.

#44
kentoirc said on December 12, 2013 at 10:46 a.m.

I HATE Rolento. Hate his freaking guts.

#45
mr_bukkakebugatti401 said on December 12, 2013 at 11:18 a.m.

It would be kool if put either (shin from the SF movie) or Joe from SF 1

#46
riku45 said on December 12, 2013 at 11:32 a.m.

Didn't Capcom say the 5th character has NEVER been in a sf game before? Retsu was in the original game so it can't be him...unless capcom is trolling us...again

#47
wBENDERw said on December 12, 2013 at 12:01 p.m.

yup you are correct

thats why

its not retsu

#48
I_Are_RaBBiT said on December 12, 2013 at 12:03 p.m.

Hope they change the commentator voice like they did at the end of that Street Fighter 25th/Ultra announcement trailer!

#49
Rijot said on December 12, 2013 at 12:18 p.m.

The people at the location tests who play on stream really need to step it up! And by step it up, I mean play Elena. I managed to find one Elena vs Hugo match, other than that I think that the only thing I've seen from her is when Combofiend played her.

#50
pickboy97 said on December 12, 2013 at 1:09 p.m.

I wanna see the stages already ...

#51
SeaJay said on December 12, 2013 at 1:17 p.m.

The commentator for CvS2 was cool, they should get that guy again...
I wouldn't mind the 5th character being Santamu, I like that she has a spear...and another nationality would be represented (although there's a little unclearness due to her name I think)

#52
cris25 said on December 12, 2013 at 4:19 p.m.

Hugo's EX backbreaker traded at least 3 times on this video. I thought it was (should be) more reliable.
On of his air to air moves should juggle too.

Also, why the hell did Rolento's AA cause a Hard KD? Even on Counter hit, there's no reason for that.

5th character what a mystery...?

#56
CaptainPlanet said on December 13, 2013 at 5:12 a.m.

Elena moves a bit unnatural to me. Not sure what to think of that.

#57
Sasuga said on December 13, 2013 at 5:47 a.m.

No, the new stages are not in it either. They are not showing the newest stuff and safe that for later location tests. prob.

#58
Sasuga said on December 13, 2013 at 5:50 a.m.

The fifth character is the black version of the Ken that is in this build and they will call him Bro-Ken.

#59
UncleBibby said on December 13, 2013 at 6:13 a.m.

i was banned from the streamchat right after i said i have aspergers, which is weird, because i actually do have aspergers (i was diagnosed of it and some other things) so i'm wondering:
Is there a new rule on streamchats where you're not allowed to identify yourself as a non-neurotypical? or did somebody ban me for talking about what i would do if i was friends with street fighter characters in real life? If so, that's weird because there were like 4 other guys in the chat who were telling me to keep talking about it.

#60
UncleBibby said on December 13, 2013 at 6:22 a.m.

UPDATE: I just found out it was cuz i used all caps in one of my comments WHOOPS sorry false alarm.

i should stop being so paranoid all the time sorry

#61
put_Garuda_in_SFIV said on December 13, 2013 at 7:12 a.m.

Yes, bring back CvSNK2 guy

#62
cris25 said on December 13, 2013 at 8:27 a.m.

So, they asked for tweets but didn't answer any new questions, is that it?

#63
Tryken said on December 13, 2013 at 8:59 a.m.

I'm really hoping for a UI change. Just a new UI change will dramatically affect the "freshness" of the game. It's like putting a fresh coat of paint on an old car, it really does wonders to make it look newer again.

#64
robot_mauk said on December 13, 2013 at 9:05 a.m.

If the name is supposed to start with a Y then the character is probably Yanyu, one of the dolls.
H-Hugo
Y-Yanyu (maybe)
P-Poison
E-Elena
R-Rolento

#65
djm0001 said on December 13, 2013 at 9:11 a.m.

no crap they're not gunna show all the new content right now, i'm ONLY talking about character balancing. it's very clear in the location test builds that the game has very little changes other than character balances

#66
djm0001 said on December 13, 2013 at 9:15 a.m.

agree'd, for $40 dollars i'm expecting the same sort of changes we saw going from SF4 -> SSF4

I definitely want a new announcer, or bring back the SF4 announcer

#67
BlackRain said on December 13, 2013 at 9:20 a.m.

Isn’t her name spelled "Jianyu" with a J? That wouldn’t fit.

The theory of the last character’s name to start with a Y is too cryptic for me. What if for example Retsu gets announced tomorrow at Capcom Cup? Are they going to change the name to "Hrper Street Fighter IV"? :D

God I hope they show us the 5th character tomorrow, I’m tired of waiting...

#68
djm0001 said on December 13, 2013 at 9:28 a.m.

who said the names of the new fighters would fit the word "HYPER" ? or are people just making assumptions because of the other 4 new characters fitting it

#69
wBENDERw said on December 13, 2013 at 9:31 a.m.

'Bro-Ken'

oh gawd that was good!!!(like it)

haha man

well saturday is coming!!! get hype!

#70
BlackRain said on December 13, 2013 at 9:31 a.m.

It’s not official; some people noted that the starting letters of the 4 announced characters spell "HPER", so there is only Y missing to get "HYPER". And after that, everyone came up with their idea what character could fit in that.

But as I said, that’s just too cryptic.

#71
zhieeep said on December 13, 2013 at 9:34 a.m.

what did you say?

#72
Existent said on December 13, 2013 at 10:45 a.m.

THAT HE HAS ASPERGERS.

#73
Landshark said on December 13, 2013 at 11:11 a.m.

The second video has no sound for some reason.

#74
Eye_of_Orochi said on December 13, 2013 at 11:14 a.m.

The whole "HYPER" thing is made up. jme has been rehashing this poorly constructed theory for a while now and it needs to stop. It's just baseless speculation and likely completely untrue.

"Rip in Peace Yun" this dude needs to stop, too. If you really think these changes will ruin Yun you must be a DP mashing scrub.

Rolento hate...we all knew it was coming.

#75
SeaJay said on December 13, 2013 at 11:55 a.m.

Gamerbee actually made Elena look like a pretty legit character, I'm more interested in her now

#76
CRAYONSEED said on December 13, 2013 at 1 p.m.

Some ideas that probably wouldn't be all that hard or costly but would be awesome in Ultra:

-A new announcer and the ability to select announcers from past SF games. Maybe even funny real life guest announcers like Yipes or that hype Japanese announcer (who's name escapes me). Imagine perfecting some fool and having Yipes freak the eff out. I'd buy two copies for no reason. (maybe someone other than Yipes because he doesn't commentate SF but you get the idea.)
-Palette swaps for the stages with the ability to select the old colors too. Maybe even cool things like adding in 2d stages from past games (HD remix stages are already 1920x1080).
-Historical music from past Street Fighter and Final Fight Games. For example Ken would have all the remixes from all the games dating back to SF2.
-Rematch option any time there are only two people playing. Even in an online lobby that supports 8, if only two people are in the lobby allow them to rematch.

#77
UncleBibby said on December 13, 2013 at 1:59 p.m.

When i said the comment in all caps, i was actually asking Ayano-san if there's ever gonna be a character creation mode in Street Fighter because i thought you were about to interview Ayano-san
