AlphaISM Radio recently had Henry Cen on as a guest. During the nearly 4 hour interview, Cen mentioned that the distributor for Chinatown Fair in New York said a few things about the arcade release of Super Street Fighter 4.

Note: This information came second hand from an unnamed source, so please take it with a grain of salt, but it was stated that:
• There's going to be at least 6 characters added to the game.

• Capcom was originally hoping for an October release date, but back then they had only planned on adding two extra fighters.

• They pushed the release date to December so they could add more characters in to the game.
This backs up Arcade UFO's statement that the arcade version would be released in December as well.

Also, on an unrelated note, Megadautilus and Brenttiscool pointed out a new shot of Street Fighter X Tekken that popped up on Yoshinori Ono's Twitter, although it's extremely out of focus.

Beyond seeing the life bars and timer for the first time, it shows that Chun-Li will be a playable character and not used strictly for assists.

Thanks to Cheech Wizard for the initial heads up.
