Capcom prepares for SF4 update, looking for suggestions

It's announced that Capcom is planning to update Street Fighter IV once again, and they're looking for suggestions about character balancing, starting now.

Though only balancing is mentioned, it's likely that this update will add some new characters and even new system. Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition was released on console on June 30, 2011 (December 16, 2010, in arcades), and since then Capcom was unable to make real money out of the SF4 series (except $40 costume DLCs). The Version 2012 update was free and came after a lot of complaints about balances. For those reasons, this upcoming "update" isn't likely to be free either. (Yes, we're talking about a new $40 game.) Otherwise, Capcom will be spending resources for no real profit.
