Seth's long-range jumping HP, "the Yoga Sniper", removed in arcade build of Ultra Street Fighter 4

Early change logs of Ultra Street Fighter 4 reported that Seth's jump back heavy punch, the long-range, Dhalsim-like attack, had returned from previous iterations of SF4. Footage of this attack being back in action can be seen during the USF4 Capcom Cup exhibition match between Infiltration and RG|Filipino Champ.

The most recent Ultra Street Fighter 4 change list did not mention anything about Seth's jumping heavy attack being reverted, but in some recent footage from the Japanese arcade version of the game, it looks as though this move has once again been restored to its SSF4 AE v2012 form.

In the following clip, you can see that the Seth player attempts to zone his opponent out with the long-ranged attack, but after a couple of jump backs, only the short-ranged counterpart comes out. Seth's "Yoga Sniper" was an attack that many Seth players were happy to see return in Ultra Street Fighter 4; whether or not this change is here to stay is still yet to be seen.

Check out the clip after the jump, and let us know what you think.
