[TGS2014 Day 3] USF4 Omega Edition announced

It's announced today on Capcom's USF4 stage show that a new mode, called Omega Edition, will be added to Ultra Street Fighter IV.

The new mode is said to change the game as we know completely, as it will feature new sets of character moves exclusive to this mode.

Update: Official information in English is added below. The Omega Edition will come with a new balance patch.

we will be releasing the version 1.04 patch in October.

We’re not stopping there however! In our ongoing effort to make sure that Ultra SFIV is the greatest version of SFIV yet, we bring you a completely new, completely free and most importantly completely fun version of your favorite 44 characters in Omega Mode! 

For those wondering, Omega mode is a completely new mode in which every character has been modified and outfitted with new normal and special attacks, resulting in a refreshing take on the characters you’ve come to know and love over the last six years. As the primary goal for this mode was fun, we placed more emphasis on making the characters feel new, than on their balance. This means that strong, fan favorite attacks such as Ken’s Shinppu Jinrai Kyaku and Sagat’s Tiger Raid make their return while other characters such as Zangief gain new abilities, like being able to combo into his command throws.

Now I know the next question that comes to mind is, “will this be playable online?” My answer to that is “it most definitely will be!” But as this mode is for fun, Omega mode will be restricted to unranked matches only. Additionally all official Capcom tournaments and Capcom Pro Tour affiliate tournaments will use the default Ultra balance, not Omega mode, as the tournament standard.
