Ayano responds to questions about adding Alex and Karin to Ultra Street Fighter 4, 'please look forward to further announcements' In the latest blog post, Ayano tackles questions that are not related to balance changes for the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter 4, on a variety of weird subjects. Most questions aren't really that interesting, but a few stuck out, and have been personally translated by me below.


We have three questions available, two about adding characters to Ultra Street Fighter 4, and one about adding functions to the taunts in the game, such as in Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike.

To start you off, here's the question regarding taunts.
Question: Since you went through all of the trouble to create 10 different taunts for every character, can't you make them more useful, like in 3rd Strike, where they would heighten your attack or defense?
From: An eye for an eye, a taunt for a taunt

Answer: In 3rd Strike, I used Q, and his taunt sure was strong, huh? But we have no plans to add effects to taunts in the Street Fighter 4 series.
Hit the jump to hear what Ayano said about Alex and Karin.
Question: Would you please... Add Alex to Ultra Street Fighter 4?
From: Bandana Lover

Answer: Being the main character of Street Fighter 3 and all, Alex sure is popular, isn't he?
Having both strong normal attacks and good throws, he certainly seems like he'd be a strong character.

Question: Why aren't you adding Karin?
From: Guy User

Answer: She got 1st place in the national popularity poll, didn't she?
Personally, there are a lot of character I'd want to add to Ultra Street Fighter 4, but please look forward to further announcements!

There's a high chance that none of this actually means anything. The choice of words "further announcements" seems to suggest that we might have something to look forward to, but at the same time it doesn't actually say we'll be getting more characters than the ones currently promised, which leaves it open to interpretation.

What are your thoughts? Do you want more characters? Do you think we'll get more characters? Let us know in the comments.
