Ultra Street Fighter 4 patch 1.04 introduces Omega Mode and online Edition Select on Monday

The next Ultra Street Fighter 4 patch is upon us and it's set to introduce a few new features and bring a popular feature to online play.


While fans are all abuzz about Street Fighter V, there were also a few announcements revealed for Ultra Street Fighter IV. The game's 1.04 patch is set to arrive this coming Monday, offering a slew of fixes and the crazy Omega Mode character variations.

Omega Mode was originally estimated for an October arrival, but was pushed back for several weeks. It looks to be ready to go, with Capcom demonstrating the new Omega Mode characters at today's Capcom Cup with a pair of special exhibition matches. Omega Mode characters offer a slew of random changes to each fighter.

A breakdown of each character's changes can be found through the Capcom-Unity blog:

Part I: Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, E. Honda, Blanka, Zangief, Guile, Dhalsim

Part II: Balrog, Vega, Sagat, M. Bison, Akuma, Gouken, Seth

Part III: Abel, C. Viper, El Fuerte, Rufus, Cammy, Fei Long, Dee Jay, T. Hawk

Part IV: Sakura, Gen, Rose, Dan, Guy, Cody, Adon, Rolento

Part V: Ibuki, Dudley, Makoto, Yun, Yang, Hugo, Elena

Part VI: Juri, Hakan, Evil Ryu, Oni, Poison

Part VII: Decapre

The patch will also bring Edition Select and Omega Mode characters online, by popular demand. These can be toggled through the game's Custom Match settings. For more on the patch's contents, check out Capcom-Unity.
