In September, Capcom announced Super Street Fighter IV, a standalone “ultimate vision” of Street Fighter. Today, Capcom Unity, Capcom’s community site, is showing off Super Street Fighter IV’s new modes. Seth Killian was kind enough to post a YouTube video of the new modes in action:
- Team Battle lets you group up for some 2v2, 3v3, and 4v4 bouts.
- The Replay Channel will finally let you record, watch, and save matches. For the fight spectator in you, you can also watch others playing on one of many streaming match “channels”.
- Endless Battle is similar to Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix’s Quarter Match with arcade-style rules. The winner stays while the loser gets kicked to the back of the line.
- Timed Bonus Stages make a comeback with some sorely missed car-crushing and barrel-smashing goodness.
In all the online modes, you’re placed in a peanut gallery of other spectators while you watch the current fight in progress.
So you thought you mastered Street Fighter IV? Dust off your fight sticks and try out these new game modes when the game ships some time in the Spring of 2010 for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.
