Making -5 Dragon Punch FADC setups safe in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Following up on his previous video which showed how the -5 disadvantage could work on a blocked Dragon Punch FADC in Ultra Street Fighter 4, Carnoustie also showed how you should be able to make these moves safe in the new version of the game, plus bait out attacks for punishes.

While these setups won't work on every single cast member, they are applicable to a wide variety of the roster.

The video also shows a number of Dragon Punch, Focus Attack Dash Cancel setups functioning the way they did previously, helping to assure fans that characters with DP FADC setups/combos still have some of the same tricks up their sleeve.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 Edition Select still offline-only, has save/reload state and Network Simulation; hits retailers August 7 in Japan

Updated: Upon closer scrutiny, it appears that Ultra Street Fighter 4's Edition Select is still an offline-only mode. We previously had a small error in translation that has since been fixed.

Japanese magazine Weekly Famitsu has more than just a look at Decapre, Rolento, Elena, Hugo and Poison's alternate costumes in its latest issue.

The gaming publication also revealed that the packaged retail version of Ultra Street Fighter 4 will come out in Japan on August 7 at the price of 3,990 yen (4,309 yen with tax included) -- as well as the scoop on some very spiffy new features: a save/reload feature and a Network Simulation option in Training mode.

First in-game look at Decapre, Rolento, Elena, Hugo, and Poison's alternate costumes in Ultra Street Fighter 4, 2nd wave of costumes also shown

Famitsu, a Japanese gaming publication, posted in their magazine the first in-game look at Decapre, Rolento, Elena, Hugo, and Poison's alternate costumes in Ultra Street Fighter 4. Each of these outfits was designed by UDON, and just yesterday, we saw the Decapre's costume design for the first time.

If you look closely at the image below, you can see that there are in-game screenshots showing a 2nd wave of alternate costumes for Rolento, Poison, Elena, and Decapre. It appears as though Rolento is donning his plumber getup from Street Fighter X Tekken, and Poison is also getting one of her SFxT outfits.

Players will be able to use these costumes if they have save data from Street Fighter X Tekken on their hard-drives. Decapre's costume isn't actually a new design, but rather, Cammy's SFxT alternate outfit. These costumes will also be available in the arcade version of Ultra Street Fighter 4.
