SSFIV Arcade Edition outed by BBFC

New tweaks and characters on the way

The British Board of Film Classification has rated Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition for release in the UK.

Arcade Edition was released earlier this year and introduces a number of tweaks to characters to create a more balanced gameplay experience. The update also introduce four new characters: Yun, Yang, Oni Akuma and Evil Ryu.


Capcom has yet to officially confirm a console release for Arcade Edition, but has previously suggested it was considering making it available.

The BBFC listing mentions Japanese artist and animator Jiro Kanai, who has previously worked on Akira, Lupin III and Detective Conan. According to the listing, Kanai directed six minutes of new cutscenes for the game, which the BBFC has passed without cuts.
