Ono claims Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition unbalanced, DLC news Yoshinori Ono, who has in the past professed to trolling, made a few interesting statements concerning Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition.

AndriaSang has the the info, translated from Famitsu.

The home version of Super SFIV was made with extremely good balance, explained Ono. The balance was done in such a way that there's no one overly powerful character.

Arcade Edition, on the other hand, has some characters who were purposely made strong. The reason this was done is because Ono feels that having such a character helps to build community and competitive spirit.

Unfortunately, Ono did not comment on what everyone really wants: home releases for Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu and Oni, all additional characters for the arcade version. It's widely expected that these characters will be offered as download content for home players.

Several outlets are reporting that Ono said there are no plans for SSF4 Arcade Edition DLC on the consoles, claiming it won't happen now, even though past statements have said otherwise. To further clarify, or perhaps muddy up the matter, Ono tweeted this message.

Is it true [there's] no Arcade Edition edition on console? — VicRattlehead0

Ono: Over my dead body!! It all right! ;D
