Super Street Fighter IV

Super Street Fighter IV (SSFIV) is the sequel to Street Fighter IV. It was only released on console and introduces 2 brand new characters to the universe, as well as 8 returning characters from previous entries in the series. As with SFIV, the game features the 2.5D gameplay style, where characters and environments are rendered in full 3D but the gameplay is played in the fixed 2D plane of the old Capcom standards, with the camera only breaking away from its fixed position during Ultra Combos and some Super Combos.

Arcade Edition

The arcade version of SSFIV, known as Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, was released in Japanese arcades just short of a year after SSFIV was released to the console. The Arcade Edition changes have been released as DLC for the console version of SSFIV (June 7th 2011) and as a full retail disc containing the DLC (June 24th 2011). The changes in the new Arcade Edition DLC are noted on the Super Street Fighter IV AE Strategy Guide.
