Ultra Street Fighter IV Adds Decapre to its Roster

March 17, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


Ending the mystery once and for all, Capcom has announced that Decapre is the fifth and final new character to be added in Ultra Street Fighter IV. First appearing as a non-playable character in Street Fighter Alpha 3 as one of M. Bison’s Dolls, Decapre has a partial mask on her face that hides a giant burn mark, while her “psycho power infused attacks” allow her to share her pain with her opponents.

Having a little fun with the announcement, check out this video to see Decapre, Hugo, Poison, Elena, and Rolento in action (Ultra Street Fighter IV gameplay starts around 1:15):

If you’re unsure of what exactly is included with Ultra Street Fighter IV, and when it’s releasing, Capcom explained everything for you:

In Ultra Street Fighter IV, Poison, Hugo, Elena, Rolento and Decapre join the fight, complete with new animations and their own unique play styles, bringing the final roster count to a massive 44 characters. Six new battle environments (including Pitstop 109, Cosmic Elevator, Half Pipe and more) provide a thrilling and colorful backdrop to the action. Direct fan feedback was gathered on all of Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition’s original 39 characters and core system mechanics in order to achieve the most balanced Street Fighter ever. In addition to the action-packed new content and the finely-tuned rebalanced gameplay, the new version features a host of new features and modes that are sure to test even the most well traveled world warrior.

Owners of Super Street Fighter IV or Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition will be able to download Ultra Street Fighter IV as a $14.99/€14.99 digital upgrade for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in early June 2014. The PC digital upgrade for $14.99/€14.99 and the PC full digital bundle for $29.99/€29.99 will both be available in August 2014. Also in August, PS3 and Xbox 360 users can purchase the retail versions of the game for $39.99/€39.99. PS3 users will also be able to download the full version of the game in August for $39.99/€39.99. Players who purchase the retail (PS3, Xbox 360) or full digital bundle (PS3, PC) will receive all previously released costumes for the series (a $40/€40 value), making this the definitive version of Street Fighter IV!
