More information on Super Street Fighter 4's Tournament Mode DLC

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • April 20, 2010 at 12:25 p.m. PDT
Capcom put out new details on the free Tournament Mode DLC pack for Super Street Fighter 4 which will be released on June 15, 2010. First off there's a trailer which showcases the title's various online modes.
Here's a bulleted run down of what was revealed today.

• Tournament Mode is a head-to-head in single-elimination tournament with brackets, with works with 4 or 8 players.

• You can watch other tournament matches in progress while you're waiting for your turn and voice chat. Players competing can hear you as well, but if it annoys you, there's a mute option.

• To help with lag, spectators will be a little bit behind the actual match that's being played.

• Tournament Mode works with SSFIV's extensive recording feature.

• There are no battle points or rankings, but Tournament Mode will give players unique and special online titles, which can be won and lost from other players.

• Like SSFIV's other online modes, character selection is double-blind.

• Tournaments will continue on even if a participating player drops out.

• While the max amount of people a tournament can hold is 8 players, a 9th person can be there as the host. If the host drops, another will be found.

GameTrailers also interviewed Yoshinori Ono about the DLC pack.
Plus Capcom sent out these shots of the new mode.
