Since the characters make up roughly one fifth of the roster, and new challengers include Ryu, Chun-Li, and the new super, Evil Ryu, Ultra Street Fighter IV feels more like Super in terms of the revised emphasis on story and back-story, but that also means the gameplay quickly evolves into a more akin to Super Street Fighter 4 and the roster slowly shrinks compared to Street Fighter 4. For instance, one of the newcomers, Juri, has a strong fighting style that is easy to get a handle to but doesn't offer much in the way of a gimmick. Match against Juri and you'll find that she can mash into multiple buttons rapidly and use all of her attacks with little to no loading, but it's not like you're going to be fighting of her twice during a single game, so the weight of her character will soon be nulled out.
Sound was a key factor in Street Fighter 4's success, and Ultra Street Fighter 4 is no different. Capcom has been working with Japanese game developer White Fox on the audio, and unlike Street Fighter 4, it features a clean and clear sound design which does justice to the character sprites. Voice lines from the original game are also available, and all of these are included in the standard Game of the Year edition of the Ultra, except for Evil Ryu and Oni's. As with most of the characters, the voice work on the latter two also varies depending on which version you purchase - the Arcade Edition features the patently hilarious Fake Jin voice from Street Fighter 5, while both the Playstation 4 and Playstation 3 editions include a more realistic speaking performance for Oni.
The game also offers one of the best online play experiences in the Street Fighter family, and this time, it has stronger compatibility with the Steam network. The shipping product will be the PC version, but you can also pre-order the Playstation 4 and Playstation 3 versions, which support cross-play. 7211a4ac4a
