Super Street Fighter 4 on PC hinted by Capcom

An official announcement of Super Street Fighter 4 on PC could be coming tomorrow morning, according to a fairly blatant hint from producer Yoshinori Ono.


The long-standing rumor of a Super Street Fighter 4 release on the PC got ignited again over the weekend, from none other than producer Yoshinori Ono. Responding to a fan asking about a PC port, Ono tweeted, "I cant twit about it topic... Plz wait until 12 Apr. 8 am PST. ;) RT" (via Blue's News).

The ESRB also lists Windows PC in the platforms for the game.

The tweet seems to indicate an impending announcement tomorrow morning, so the mystery should be solved soon enough. Capcom may also choose to pair the rumored PC reveal with the official announcement of the Arcade Edition, which was all-but-confirmed last week with a leaked trailer. The Arcade Edition would add four new fighters and balance tweaks.

      Yay! But is it too late? Will it include the AE updates? Will they default the frame rate setting to variable again so retards with shit PCs make every match go into slow motion (fixed should have been forced on)?

      Too many questions! Yet I know I'll still buy it on Steam. Damnit.

        I would bet it has the AE enhancements. Might have been part of the delay.

        Now we need RDR PC (different company, I know - but still)

        All great questions.

        And like you, I'll still buy it regardless.

      there'd want to be some serious discount on this for people who already own sf4 on's some new characters, balance tweeks and animations, not a new game. but knowing capcom it'll be full price and they'll do absolutely nothing in the way of giving people who bought the first game a discount or some extra content and then they'll wonder why people will pirate the game...fuck you capcon, seriously, fuck you.

        Super was discounted on the consoles ($40 vs $60 for SF4) when it came out. And the PC version of SF4 was discounted as well at $40. I can see this one being even less, but even if it's $40 it's still a damn good deal and I've bought the game 3 times now, SF4 on PS3 & PC and SSF4 on PS3. Don't be a whiny bitch, there's more than enough there to justify the cost.

          he has a point, the online community for SF4 PC was never good. finding matches (nevermind equally skilled ones) was a pain in the ass at all stages of the game's release

          would suck to pay 50 dollars for an expansion and have no one to play with

            I never had any problems finding matches, but like on the console it's much easier when you host rather than search. 1v1 matchups go quick so by the time you the list, most of them are full.

            Anyway SSF4 has a lobby system so it'll be a lot better for those that don't know better. As for piracy, they could charge $20 and people would still come up with excuses to steal it. Capcom can't win, but I'm grateful they are even doing it at all as I loved the PC version so much more.

            I got SF4 for $35 via Steam pre-order, this game isn't going to be $50.

              yeah, i guess you're right. i'm looking forward to this announcement as well-- even though i sold off my stick + 360 game. i prefer playing with the KB anyway.

            I don't know if that's completely true. I got lots of solid competition on the PC version. Maybe I'm just not very good, but it didn't seem a far cry from my PS3 matches.

        i don't expect it to be more than $30, and i could see it even being $20

          I would consider it on PC for 20$, anymore and that's a pass.

              Sorry, I'm not buying the same game 4 or 5 times. I've already bought it twice for 360.

                And it's Capcom's fault if the game doesn't do well as there was ABSOLUTELY no reason why cross-platform wasn't possible.

      How awesome it would be if they announced Steamworks support instead of GFWL?

      Not going to happen, though.

        They would certainly see a spike in PC sales.

        They're fantastic ports, but the GFWL stuff is a real disincentive for many.

      well let's just say i hope capcom give me a reason to buy it :) am really looking forward to some new characters and a revitilized community

      I hope they will use Steamworks instead of GFWL. If they will use GFWL, I won't buy it.

      Please let us patch/DLC our existing games up to the new one (and don't force us to use the GFWL marketplace to do it...)

      I held off on buying the PC version of SF4 because of this, so I'm hoping it's true.

        I was in the same boat, but I ended buckling and getting it when it was dirt cheap a year ago.
