With the introduction of Red Focus and Ultra Combo Double, not to mention the four new characters, we’re changing the game quite a bit with Ultra Street Fighter IV. The game is still a work in progress, but with all the new additions, we need player feedback to ensure that these additions are both fun and balanced. Now, you might be thinking “Peter, I can’t give you feedback if I haven’t played the game.” You’re right. That’s why I’m here to tell you about our location tests where you can get your hands on USFIV!
The first location test will take place at the home of Wednesday Night Fights and Thurday’s The Runback, Super Arcade in Walnut, California. The location test will take place from 12pm-10pm on Friday, November 29 th and Saturday, November 30 th , and 11am-7pm on Sunday, December 1 st.

The second location test will take place at Big E Gaming’s North East Championship XIV in Essington, Pennsylvania. As this will be the biggest tournament on the East Coast around this time, it only makes sense for Ultra to be there as well. The location test will take place from 12pm-10pm on Friday December 6 th and Saturday, December 7 th , and from 11am-5pm on Sunday, December 8 th.

Hopefully I’ll see you at one of these location tests. If you do, feel free to provide me with some well thought out feedback as we’re fully committed to our goal of providing you the most balanced version of the Street Fighter IV series yet. There may be more location tests planned in the future, so keep checking Capcom-Unity for future dates and information.
We’re still deciding whether these will be streamed or not. I will advise you all before the playtests in a separate post.
