Posted by Nicholas 'MajinTenshinhan' Taylor • November 15, 2013 at 8:19 a.m. PST

In the latest post over at Capcom's Saikyo blog, Ultra Street Fighter 4 producer Tomoaki Ayano announced that location tests for Ultra Street Fighter 4 will be held in Japan between November 21st and November 24th, and where they will be held.

However, this wasn't all he said. He also noted that besides the already explained Red Focus and Double Ultra mechanics, yet another new mechanic that was previously rumoured is in place for this new version, namely a delayed wakeup mechanic.

Hit the jump to see EventHubs' very own MajinTenshinhan's translation of Ayano's delayed wakeup statement, as well as where Japan's location tests will be held.

Below, you'll find Ayano's translated statement.

We also have a third new battle system — Delay Standing... For you to experience!

Delay Standing allows you to alter the timing of your wakeup, making your rise take a bit longer than usual. With this, you can increase your options against opponents with strong okizeme!

Please come by and try it out!

Besides this, people in Japan will be able to try the game out between November 22nd and November 25th at the following locations:

Tokyo Taito Station, Shinjuku South Game World
Osaka Taito Station, Osaka City Nipponbashi
Nagoya Taito Station, Oosu
Fukuoka Taito Station, Fukuoka Tenjin
Sendai Taito Station, Sendai Chris Road
Sapporo Taito Station, Sapporo Tanuki Kouji
