The promised SSF4 free DLC mode is now available for your downloading pleasure (currently on PSN and later in the day on xbox live). The free mode offers the ability to host and participate in tournaments online with all their brackets glory. Check out the trailer below to get a taste of what awaits you:
along with the tournament mode, the dlc also includes the first balance patchfor the game. The balance patch will fix the following issues:
Certain Fei Long combos turning into an endless combo (against Juri)
When you unleash an Ultra Combo and time freezes, your guard input cancels out. This, Ayano admitted, is actually something that was known prior to the release, but they left it in as an interesting play mechanic. After the game’s release, they realized that there were a number of characters that ended up in being able to unleash their Ultra Combos with no risk.
The effect of Sagat’s Angry Charge move does not reflect on his EX Tiger Uppercut in some circumstances.
Counter damage against Bison’s Ultra Combo II Psycho Punisher move is too low
When Ibuki attacks a ducking Chun-Li, the second hit of the attack will not register
When Ibuki rises from the ground in certain instances, she’ll retain her invincibility for a long time.
Nabil, AKA Strugler, is an old time fan of the fighting games genre. Born in the early 80's Strugler got to experience the rise (and fall) of the Arcade scene, and learned the hard way to never mash buttons in order to win the last third round of a Street Fighter II match.
