Hello Street Fighter fans, as you know ultra Street Fighter IV is getting an update patch that includes omega mode. This add new and old moves while throwing the word balance out the window. What this means for players is a new version of their favorite characters to play with. Now we have been given some more data on more characters. I say some because the article makes of note with each section that the their is more changes then they listening. As before I will list what they have posted.
Gigaton Blow: A powerful EX follow-up to Balrog’s EX Dash Straight.
The Gigaton Blow uses three bars of EX meter, so you’ll need full meter to pull it off after an EX Dash Straight. Maybe this could be just the move you need when you want to put your opponent down for the count…
You can’t really hit-confirm it, so you’ll have to think of good ways to land it.
Horn Breaker: A command throw.
Balrog goes all-in with head blows. You could call this a special move version of his Dirty Bull. It dishes out quite a bit of stun.
Balrog also has new options for his close and long range attacks, making him into a more aggressive character.
My inspiration: A wild bull with giant horns.
Rose Thorn: A new variation that can be triggered from Vega’s Barcelona Attack. As the name suggests, this is a sharp, dangerous kick move. It can be performed after flying over an opponent’s head, making it a difficult move to read. You might get hated on for using it. Heh heh.
Ryu: Is this gonna be the throw? Or the claw attack?!
Vega: Rose Thorn!
Crimson Crucify: A version of EX Rolling Crystal Flash that uses two bars of EX meter. This is a rushing multi-hit move that does big damage.
Though Vega mainly specializes in single-poke attacks, now he has a multi-hit combo that does big damage too.
We always conceptualized Vega as a character who is strong in the air, so we wanted to expand on that concept.
My inspiration: An even thornier Vega.
Tiger Raid: A kick combo that finishes with a powerful flying kick. This is very similar to the move from the Alpha series.
This move can be linked from a medium kick, so if you’ve got the meter you can look for ways to hit it after one of those. And since it sends the enemy flying, you can use it to help push your opponent into a corner too.
Sagat also has target combos and feint moves, making him a character who can use his legs pretty freely. And with his projectile he can keep up the pressure at both close and long range.
My inspiration: Sagat going beyond the title of The Emperor of Muay Thai!
Psycho Crusher Omega: A more powerful version of the Psycho Crusher that uses two EX bars. After hitting his opponent with the Psycho Crusher, M. Bison can pound his enemy with an uppercut for an explosion of Psycho Power!
After the hit he even gets his trademark pose in! This also counts as a hit!
Psycho Sever: A new move—the fierce and EX versions give Bison the overhead he’s always wanted.
Now you can repeatedly pressure your opponents with Double Knee Presses, and then break through their defenses with the Psycho Sever.
The properties of Bison’s existing moves have been changed, and with new command normal and special moves you’ll have fresh new ways to play Bison!
My inspiration: The evolution of a dictator!
During the forward-moving kick version of Ashura Senku, use two bars of EX meter for another version of the Shun Goku Satsu. Trick opponents into thinking it’s a normal Ashura Senku, then hit them with a surprise attack!
There have been many changes and additions to Akuma’s EX moves, starting with Hyakkishu. Try some of them out and it won’t take long for you to discover that you’ve got a completely different Akuma on your hands.
My inspiration: Akuma having a lot of things to do in the air!
A striking attack that can be used in combos. It doesn’t have a whole lot of reach but it comes out fast and doesn’t cause a lot of pushback, making it easy to use in combos. You can also use it together with EX Focus Cancels to create various new combos.
Pictured above is the EX version. It’s not only powerful, but also causes crumple stun.
Now you can send Gouken’s EX Hadoken flying in three different directions depending on your button combinations. You can use this in combos, and it’s also good for keeping your opponent in check.
Gouken’s versatility has really improved. Take a good look at all of his moves and choose the play style that’s right for you.
My inspiration: Gouken with a stronger ground game!
EX Sonic Boom
EX Sonic Boom stays still on the screen for a bit before flying towards the opponent. I guess you could call it a set-up move.
Follow after it to apply the pressure, or
Use a Yoga Teleport while the Boom is holding to teleport behind the opponent for a mix-up.
And there’s a new special move too—the Chariot Tackle! Use it for new combos!
Seth has always had a lot of moves, so we’ve balanced them to make them easier to use.
My inspiration: Seth coming at you from both the ground and the air.
As always thank you for reading.
