Two additional game mechanics are coming to Ultra Street Fighter IV
Capcom revealed new details about the upcoming title in the Street Fighter series, Ultra Street Fighter 4. It seems that in addition to new characters, stages and balances players will also be treated to two new gameplay mechanics.
- The first is a double ultra option, which will allow players to pull off either of their characters ultras in game. When using this option Ultras won't do as much damage as compared to selecting just one, but it could be a useful option for players looking for more versatility.
- The second mechanic that was announced is called red focus. The new focus attack will allow you to negate the damage of multiple attacks by spending your super meter. However, abilities that could shatter normal focus will still shatter red focus.
Ultra Street Fighter IV will be releasing early 2014 for $15 if you upgrade your copy of Super, or $39.99 standalone. Its nice to see new mechanics coming to the game in addition to the assets they just pulled from Street Fighter X Tekken.
