Ultra Street Fighter 4 getting 'Summer Vacation' costume DLC

The Ultra Street Fighter 4 cast is catching some sun with the 'Summer Vacation' costume DLC, which is coming soon.


Ultra Street Fighter 4 only arrived at the start of June and, in fact, it hasn't even released on PC or at retail yet. So naturally, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono wasn't about to announce another installment in the series. Instead, the only USF4 announcement at this year's San Diego Comic Con involved the game's fighters donning their Summer Vacation outfits for some new costume DLC.

Each of Ultra Street Fighter 4's fighters will receive an additional costume with the Summer Vacation DLC, all centered around the theme of catching some sun and putting on some fine warm weather clothes. Some of the outfits fit the theme very well, such as Blanka wearing a Hawaiian shirt and lei and Sakura donning a summer blouse. Other selections are a little more abstract, like Rufus and Zangief donning scuba gear. Who knows what Rufus and Zangief are even wearing. You can see a few costumes below and hit Shoryuken for the rest. Release or pricing information was not given for the Summer Vacation DLC.

Anyone waiting for anymore announcements from Capcom will just have to keep waiting. Ono added that would not make any further fighting game announcements for the remainder of 2014. There's still a future update lined up, though, so it remains to be seen whether this will hit later this year or get pushed back to early 2015.

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 was about to say something smartallicky and snarky and then I actually looked at the link. Anything that let's me play as Rufus in a scuba suit is worth a few bucks in my book.

      They either should have done a non-theme pack or they better be doing a lot of new packs.

      If this is all we get for all of ultra it will be pretty disappointing.

      A few of them are great, but others not so much.

      There are only 2 or 3 that are decent, the rest are pretty bad. :(

      They really need stop letting UDON do these costumes and just do them in house.
