Ultra Street Fighter 4 battles onto PlayStation 4 in May

Ultra Street Fighter 4 will soon arrive on PlayStation 4, with Capcom offering up a May 26 date for the complete package to date.


Capcom is preparing the next big installment of the Street Fighter series, but that's a long way out. So in the meantime, they're preparing to release Ultra Street Fighter IV on Sony's next-gen console. The most recent installment of the long-running franchise has been given a release date on PlayStation 4, with the game set to arrive on May 26.

"All the characters, all the levels, and all of the DLC that have been launched so far will be included in the PS4 version of the game," SCEA Third Party Production Director Gio Corsi said on PlayStation.Blog. "Also, a few of you hardcore Street Fighters out there said that there was minor input lag in the controls of Ultra Street Fighter IV for PS3. Well, don’t worry: we’ve eliminated it to make the PS4 edition the ultimate version on any platform, so it’ll be good to go for all your tournament needs!"

Corsi's statement on tournament use is an interesting one to note, as the annual Evo tournament gets closer. A number of tournaments are utilizing either PC builds or Xbox 360 builds (despite some hiccups, as seen during the recent NorCal Regionals). It'll be interesting to see which tournaments, if any, decide to adopt the PlayStation 4 build of Ultra Street Fighter IV for future tournaments.

As for the general public, they'll be able to pick the game up on May 26 as a digital download for $24.99. Retail disc versions will not be made available.

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?

      Evo SF4 is on PS4 this year, which is going to be a nightmare, considering everyone has last gen sticks.

        There should be a petition for Sony to release a firmware upgrade to let older sticks work on the PS4. I mean, the hardware clearly isn't incompatible, since i can load up a Street Fighter 4 on my PC right now and use a 360, XBO, PS3 or PS4 gamepad.

        That's right, they did make that official, didn't they? That is going to suck for a lot of those guys.

          I think Sony funding Street Fighter has a lot to do with it

          Yeah not sure their plan to loan ps4 sticks is going to pan out so smoothly, but hope I'm wrong!
