Ultra Street Fighter IV is the third special version of Street Fighter IV, another entry in cult series of fighting games that started in 1987. The Japanese company Capcom decided that the Super SF IV and Arcade editions werenít enough and created an even more complete edition that features 44 characters and all costumes that were released for the game.
The developers didnít drastically change the gameplay mechanics. Instead, they took the suggestions of the players and implemented gameplay balance changes, making the battles between two fighters even more enjoyable than in previous games. The fights are fought on six additional arenas: Pit stop 109, Mad Gear Hideout, Cosmic Elevator, Blast Furnace, Half Pipe, and Jurassic Era Research Facility. As usual, the game features a few gameplay modes, including ones for single players, local multiplayer modes, and online multiplayer modes. Ultra Street Fighter IV features new challenges designed for the greatest fans of the series.
Five new characters join the 39 characters known from the Arcade Edition. All of them are well known by the fans of the series. The players can use the giant Hugo, a giant wrestler, and Rolento, disciplined American soldier from Germany. The list of female characters was increased with the names like Poison Ė a cop with pink hair, and Elena, a princess from Kenya.
The graphics remain unchanged Ė the game style uses a cartoon-like style based on cel-shading technology. Thanks to that, the graphics donít age quickly. Despite the three-dimensional surroundings and characters, the battles are fought in 2D.
