Ultra Street Fighter 4 continues to change and evolve after each location test. After taking feedback from amateur and professional players alike, Capcom has issued a new change list, while also taking the time to further explain some of the game's new mechanics to the uninitiated.

Peter 'Combofiend' Rosas goes further into what Red Focus and Ultra Combo Double bring to the table. Players can perform Red Focus by simultaneously pressing light punch, medium punch, and middle kick with two meters (three meters for EX) to absorb an infinite number of attacks. Absorbing attacks will help build the Ultra meter at double speed, while unleashing the Red Focus attack dishes out 1.5 times more damage to opponents. EX Red Focus will have the added benefit of granting armor effects.

Ultra Combo Double, as previously stated, allows fighters to use both Ultra combos in one match. Capcom has now clarified that dealing out Ultra Combos with Ultra Combo Double enabled will dish out 75% of their normal damage for all characters, except Zangief, Cammy, Fei Long, T.Hawk, Makoto, Hakan, Dhalsim, Rose, Akuma, E.Honda, and Hugo, who will deal 60% damage.

For the full list of changes, including changes to each individual character, check out Capcom-Unity.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        I like to think we're much more level-headed here on Shack. (Probably helps that most of our ShackFighter crew is pretty satisfied with the changes to their characters.)
