Ultra Street Fighter IV Patch Details Released

By Ashley Woodcock, 2 years ago
Capcom, the well known game developer behind the much loved Street Fighter series, look to keep the support coming in for their "Ultra Street Fighter IV" DLC expansion in their latest fighting instalment, Super Street Fighter IV. A new patch is currently in the works for the expansion and looks to add plenty of new content, including the previously covered announcement of Omega Mode, and surprisingly only needing to fix a small amount of issues.

USFIV Patch Screen


Check out the full list of details on patch 1.04 right here:

Version Number

The game will now display “Version 1.04” in the options menu after the update.

Edition Select Online

Street Fighter IV Now players will be able to test out their favorite dream matches against all challengers across the globe. For the uninitiated, Edition Select allows players to pick any version of their favorite character from any version of SFIV that they’ve been in, balance and all. We’ve also added icons per version so that players will be able to adjust their strategies that much quicker.

Which character is the strongest? Pick your best fighter and go online* to find out. I’m sure an army of Vanilla SFIV Sagats and AE Yuns will be waiting for you.

*You can now turn Edition Select ON/OFF in Custom Match search settings or when creating Custom Lobbies for Endless, Team, Tournament and Online training modes. Edition select is only available for unranked matches only.

New Training Mode Trials

Take your game to the next level as you try to complete all the fun and challenging trials for Yun, Yang, Oni, Evil Ryu, Hugo, Elena, Decapre, Poison and Rolento! In addition to trails for these characters, you’ll also find updates for characters whose USFIV battle balance changes made a few of their previous trials no longer possible. Once you master these trials, take your newfound skills online and style on the competition.

Omega Mode Online

Are you ready to experience your favorite SFIV characters re-imagined in the all new Omega Mode*? Every character has been given new specials, as well as adjustments on their normal attacks to make them that much more fun and hype. Once you get a feel for them, take them for a spin online** and see what others have cooked up with their favorite characters.

*Omega Mode is not actually its own mode, but an edition of the characters located in Edition select.

**Please take note that Omega Mode places a larger emphasis on fun, rather than balance, and therefore can only be used in unranked matches.

Updated Battle Balance

We’ve heard your requests throughout the year and have made some changes to the cast, with the ultimate goal of making everyone viable *cough DeeJay cough cough*.

Bug Fixes

Both the Vega and Yun bugs will addressed and fixed in this patch.

Compatibility files for the Wild costumes

Compatibility files will also be added allowing players to be able to use the Wild costumes immediately after purchase.
Capcom have released a set of screens for selected character's Wild costumes. Check out your favourite character/s sporting some pretty colourful and very alternative gear:
