Super Street Fighter IV Hands-On Impressions

Super Street Fighter IV Hands-On Impressions

By Brian Leahy - Posted Nov 18, 2009

You know your day is off to a great start when Capcom's Seth Killian stops by with a playable build of Super Street Fighter IV. Yesterday I got a chance to get a little hands-on time with T. Hawk, Dee Jay, and Juri, three of the “around eight” new characters coming in the overhauled version. It should be noted, however, that the game is still in development and the details and balancing are subject to change before the game is released in Spring.

First up, Dee Jay! One of the fan favorites from the Super Street Fighter II era, Dee Jay has retained most of his moves and is a very powerful charge character. Playing a lot like Guile, but faster, Dee Jay is very versatile in both countering and rushdown. Unfortunately, he’s received a bit of a nerf according to Seth. In the current build, his EX Dread Kick crumples and can be chained with more EX Dread Kicks in a 1-frame link. It was also possible to chain these into his ultra combo. No longer! I can’t speak to his current state, but I will say that a lot of Balrog and Guile players might defect to Dee Jay. He’s very satisfying to play.

T. Hawk is a nice surprise. His Condor Dive makes him a little more useful than Zangief for closing the distance. Additionally, he now has a horizontal dive that allows him to rush down without having to jump first. Additionally, his Tomahawk Buster returns giving T. Hawk some nice anti-air. His power, however, still comes from his piledriver and his ultra is devastating, especially with a full ultra bar. I foresee a good amount of Zangief players trying out T. Hawk, but his slow style might turn others off.

Juri, a completely new character, is a nice addition and has a decent moveset, focused on kicks and speed. One of her best moves is a dive kick that can break armor as well as traverse the screen quickly. Juri is one of the most dangerous characters in the air. I get a very strong Gen vibe from her, though she is not a stance fighter. Definitely a lot of finesse involved in chaining her moves together.

Overall, the new characters fit in nicely and the new systems should add a lot to Super Street Fighter IV along with the new multiplayer modes. Throw in the fact that the game will priced lower than a full $60 and you’ve got the makings of a solid revision to an already amazing fighting game.

Look for more on Super Street Fighter IV in the coming months.

    I'm sorry you guys but as much as I am happy to see the addition to eight new fighters, I'm still pissed at the fact that we have to go out and buy an all new game instead of the ones who spent the 60 bucks or more already, to have the chance to buy it as DLC!! They would have to drop the price down to at least 20 or 30 bucks in order for me to go out and buy it again!!!

    I keep coming back here and checking if anyone say some of the fake screens of the leaked characters for super street fighter 4? I was just over at capcom-unity and there is a door knob putting fake pictures of Guy and Urien up. The hype for this game is out of control. Mr. Brian you must be crazy happy for this game! Always a fun read. Love to all G4 staff, happy holiday's!

    Mr. B
    Again I am green over here. You lucky dogs, get the hands on treatment. Capcom truly loves there fans. I have never seen fan feedback make a new game like this. The Dev team does listen to it's pro and novice players alike. Hey B if you ever want a puching bag on street fighter let me know. That go's for Silver McGurgleburg also. Anyone that has been training with Gooteck's is players I want to be around. Love to all the G4 staff...yes even you Adam. Happy holidays!

    I'm really excited for this one. I'm really hoping they other characters will include Makoto, Dudley, Elena, Ibuki, Alex and/or R. Mika.

    Hey, Leahy. Did Killian, you know, give you any off-the-record say about the other 5 characters? The anticipation is killing me (no pun intended).
