While the trailer runs through a bunch of new features for Super SFIV (and even gives you a look at the swanky new SSFIV avatars on Xbox Live!), the new juice here is Tournament Mode.
Tournament Mode lets you go head-to-head in single-elimination tournaments with either 4 or 8-person brackets. If you win, you advance toward the title match. If you lose, feel free to join a new tourney.
You can watch the tournament match in progress while you’re waiting your turn, and discuss the match with the other competitors live. You can also use SSFIV’s recording functions to record any tournament matches you’re watching for replay later (and the save is cool–you can hit the button at any time during a round, and it will save the whole thing!).
Beyond that, there will also be special unique belts that Capcom makes available from time to time. If you win these special tournaments, you’ll receive a totally unique online title that’s yours exclusively–at least until the next special tournament, where you have to defend the title or lose it to a new competitor!
Tournament Mode will arrive as FREE (as in… free!) DLC on June 15th, and check out some more screens in this gallery . Basically, after you’ve had a chance to hone your skills, you’ll have a chance to jump into the most competitive mode yet.
