Site backs up December release for Super Street Fighter 4 arcade

Site backs up December release for Super Street Fighter 4 arcade AndriaSang.com spotted over on AM-net, an arcade information site, that Super Street Fighter 4 will see a December arcade release and the upgrade kit will sell for 1,912,000 yen, or roughly $23,000 USD.

This backs up the rumor that came up in August which stated the same thing, but also went on to add that the arcade version would be receiving a total of six new fighters.

Yang and Yun are the only confirmed fighters for the arcade version right now — but it appears that the December release date is going to hold up — and this would add more weight to the six character rumor.

The Tokyo Game Show is right around the corner, and more information about SSF4 and MvC3 will be coming in soon. Stayed fixed to the front page of EventHubs.com for more news.
