Today, a full change log for the arcade release of Ultra Street Fighter 4 was released onto the net, on the USF4 Nesica site.

It detailed changes for all of the returning characters in the game, along with system mechanic alterations.

EventHubs' own MajinTenshinhan and KarbyP provided translations for the community. Hit the jump to view the complete breakdown.

System changes


Red Focus
- Costs 2 bars to use.
- Command is MP+MK+LP.
- Does 1.5x as much damage as a regular Focus Attack.
- Level 1 will give hitstun. Level 2-3 will crumple opponent.
- Can absorb any amount of hits. Level 1 and 2 work the same as regular Focus, that you can be counter hit while you're moving in to attack. Level 3 has armor during the full attack duration.
- While being hit during a red focus, you get twice as much Ultra gauge as during regular hits.

EX Red Focus
- Costs 3 bars to use.
- It used by pressing MP+MK+LP to cancel a move during hit or block.
- Damage is 1.5x as much as a regular Focus Attack.
- Level 1-3 all crumple.

Delayed Wakeup
- Is used by pressing two buttons at the same time right before you hit the ground (if it is delayed wakeup-able).

- "Delayed Wakeup" will appear in text on the screen as a visual.

Ultra Combo Double
- You can choose Ultra Combo Double at the character select screen.
- You can use either Ultra Combo 1 or 2 during battle.
- Ultra Combo Double scales your ultras so they won't do 100%. Scaling is different between characters. E. Honda, Zangief, Dhalsim, Akuma, Cammy, Fei Long, Rose, T. Hawk, Makoto, Hakan and Hugo each do 60%, while all other characters will do 75%. There's a little more that needs to be noted, which can be found below.

Assuming the nerf on all shoryus in the game, Ryu hasn't changed much except for his tatsus. Think he'll be even less competitive now, especially when others are buffed (I'm pretty sure).

He's exactly like the beta change list described. I thought they'd remove Thrust Peak as b.LP, but apparently not.

Can't wait to see the final Juri/Chun changes.

star123us said on April 10, 2014 at 8:45 a.m.

No hope for Chun..... They won't give back her jump buff. She will still be low tier.(at least give her air normals buff... or make it a bit faster than current speed.)Actually, last one was really stupid fast and we didn't want it that fast. Also she needs to be easier to use lightning kicks. Canceling C.HP into lightning kick is pretty tough. And her fireball sucks compare to other charging fireballs. No hope for Chun to face Guile in USF4. I still have hope for console version might be bit different than arcade version in June.

#8
bushin_dunks said on April 10, 2014 at 8:46 a.m.

There might still be some little changes before home release but this could very well be the final changes for the majority of the cast. How exciting!!

Chun has 1 active frame less on df.LK, that's the only difference I could see. Also, Juri's U1 is lowered from 900f to 630f with Double Ultra.

(This comment was hidden because it was down voted. You can view it by clicking here.)

Why would assume such an extreme and absurd change?
Either the changes are listed per player, or they are not.

I've already described why that -5 FADC DP blanket change was poor in previous posts.

It discriminates from certain characters from even being able to create forward pressure.

That type of change needs to be applied evenly across the entire cast with all special moves that are blocked, or it needs to be removed.

Looks like common sense has prevailed and it has been removed.

Looks like the -5 FADC DP change has stuck!

Then they had better do something about this quick smart:

Either that and/or make Edition Select available across all modes, including its own seperate Ranked mode!

#22
Rvo2099 said on April 10, 2014 at 8:57 a.m.

One doubt:

Ryu: "When you do "EX Shoryuken (first hit), FADC, Dash", you can combo into anything except a throw."

Is it an error in the text? Doesn't FADC already imply the dash? Or is it two dashes?

#23
star123us said on April 10, 2014 at 8:58 a.m.

Thx for the post. Still mad about Capcom's work for Chun. She got tools for hard knockdown; however, due to delay wake up, it really does not affect the actual matches I guess.

#24
xShonuffx said on April 10, 2014 at 8:58 a.m.

Everyone raped Chun Li with the whole fast Jump issue but everybody has issues with -5 DP FADC. Really not fair.\

xShonuffx said on April 10, 2014 at 9:03 a.m.

funny, but nothing ever has to be black and white. They could have gave her some speed. Not full out ridiculous I can't react speed. Little goes a long way but to completely remove it after implementation is lame. It is a glaring weakness for Chun.

This is all arm chair game design. Hopefully it won't matter and she is fine. I've trained myself not to jump really anyways thanks this.

#30
sarif2soon said on April 10, 2014 at 9:04 a.m.

#32
sarif2soon said on April 10, 2014 at 9:07 a.m.

It means that hitting with the first hit of EX SRK and FADCing puts the opponent in a free juggle state, so that means that anything could hit. You can even reset or do some awesome combos.

#33
TheArchangel said on April 10, 2014 at 9:08 a.m.

yeah... gief needed more nerfs. because he's winning all these majors right?

#34
Doopliss said on April 10, 2014 at 9:08 a.m.

Quite sure it's supposed to say that they cause knockdown instead of standing hitstun on the last hit now.

#35
Brolylegs said on April 10, 2014 at 9:09 a.m.

''will be downed'' means knockdown

Anyway, Chun got minor buffs, but nothing mind-blowing. Her biggest buff is delay wakeup, and that will not save her in the long run. Prediction, mid-tier at best.

#36
sarif2soon said on April 10, 2014 at 9:09 a.m.

"- Far standing medium kick is now -3 frames on block, instead of -7 frames. -7 frames on block, instead of -10 frames."

#63
djm0001 said on April 10, 2014 at 9:34 a.m.

Looks like shoto's will need to EX DP -> FADC in order to avoid the -5 on block change, so basically if you want that guaranteed safety you need to spend the extra bar

SimSimIV said on April 10, 2014 at 9:40 a.m.

His changes are exactly the same as the last one which all Sim players have been feeling sad about. Luckily there will almost certainly be more changes come console release, as Decapre is still being tested, and both Dawgtanian and Combofiend have heavily hinted that Sim will get more changes that he needs.

#73
Yung said on April 10, 2014 at 9:40 a.m.

None of his buffs are actually significant. Dude, I did a RCF two years ago and I'm still waiting for that s*** to start up. When you see that move, you can just jump, or punish the start up. You'll probably NEVER hit that move. The super buff is fine, but in my personal opinion, I don't see the point for saving 4 bars for a move that now does 100 less damage.

It's no use my friend, Vega will never get out of the bottom. T_T

This comment section is gonna BLOW UP! Looks like the biggest nerf to sim is the soft knockdown on ex blast. I heard they reverted their decision to have a fb and u1 on screen together. Dhalsim overal will be buffed with the less pushback on his mediums and general damage increase. Also looking forward to that 2 hit mk for makoto, yun, and Fei

Typo at Vega's super change, it says "guage" instead of "gauge"

EX RCF being +4 means you can at least get some decent punish damage from s.HP. Also, EX RFA is really useful for Vega, so I wouldn't rule him out yet. At least they didn't ruin him (See Zangief, Seth).

Dem Viper Buffs are staying? Could this mean this potential combo video for her could be true???

You can get a free float juggle by trading the launcher yes, but unless you plan on using all your super meter AND your ultra, you can already do similar things by trading either EX FBA or U1.

Hmm. It looks like the characters that are getting the heaviest buffs are not necessarily the ones who needed it most.

Yeah, I guess you're right. But looking at the full picture, it looks like Vega will remain the same as he was in AE 2012, which makes me kinda sad when I look at some other characters that were actually good and are still getting buffs. ):

Why is Zangief getting nerfed n way ?

Scrubs whining about grapplers I guess.

But I won't lose the meter for the Super until I reach the wall and that would be after the launcher. So it's possible to get Super

Yes for balrog buffs!!! At least I think some of those are buffs. Curious to see the changes to his overhead and ender for super...or was it his ultra :S

I dunno how I feel about some of these changes. Some are very creative and open up new possibilities for some characters, while other changes buff them where they don't need a buff (Zangief LP SPD range even higher, does he really need that? Will it make him more viable?) and some got so minor or gimmicky buffs and flat trade off NERFS, so that they will be even more unviable.

Doopliss said on April 10, 2014 at 9:55 a.m.

Well yes, I'm just saying that it doesn't really matter since you can trade EX FBA if you want to combo into Ultra, Or U1 if you want to combo into super/EX moves. I guess you could do something new by trading a cancelled Super with Dudley's Rose or something, but that's the extent of his new combo possibilities.

C. Vipers change log is not properly formatted.
Thanks for the translation.
