Juicebox's podcast: How to get better at Street Fighter Juicebox is back with another great podcast over on BLGaming.com. He breaks down the various areas you should look at to improve your play and which goals to set to help you along the way.

If you haven't been tuning into Juicebox's podcast so far, you're missing out, as he offers a very direct breakdown of what to do to get better at Street Fighter without the extra fluff which seems all too common with podcasts.

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.

Rose Super Street Fighter 4 combo video by MrDustKicka

MrDustKicka posted a new Rose combo video for Super Street Fighter 4, featuring some solid combos and probably a bit too much taunting.

'Considerable' changes made to Super Street Fighter 4 arcade, new alts.

Update: Over on the official Japanese Super Street Fighter 4 blog, translated by Andria Sang, they mentioned again that Super Street Fighter 4's arcade version is about to see a second location test this weekend, and while they did not confirm new characters will be added to the game, they did say it has changed 'considerably'.

Although there's no doubt that Capcom will be adding new characters at this point, it's been stated by a few staff members that there's more in store for SSF4 besides these additional fighters. A little ways back, Yoshinori Ono mentioned in an interview with Famitsu that Super Street Fighter 4 could receive new moves and other things via DLC, but if Capcom were to go this route, it seems likely they'd incorporate this stuff into the arcade release as well.

The current blog entry goes on to say that the new DLC costumes will be shown running on actual hardware at the Tokyo Game Show, and that Capcom will be announcing future developments for the console version of SSF4 there as well — but this could simply be another reference to the outfits again.

Speaking of outfits, Ono posted new concept sketches for Ryu, Cammy, Chun-Li and Juri showcasing their new attire.
