Super Street Fighter IV Fight Club

US SFIV champion Justin Wong shows off new characters and Ultras with the tournament winner.

Last night, Capcom held their second annual CES Street Fighter IV Fight Club. This time, however, it was the upcoming Super Street Fighter IV that was on hand. Lucky community members and the gaming press were able to go hands-on with all of the currently announced characters as well as see all of the new Ultra Combos for all returning and new characters.

I also competed in the tournament. At stake, a brand-new Super Street Fighter IV Tournament Edition Fight Stick, a year of Xbox Live, and 8000 Microsoft points (put up by Microsoft's Major Nelson). How did I do? Well, I won my first match. I ended up losing in my second match to a very good Rufus player that managed to make the top 8.

As such, I only got to play a few rounds as Balrog. His new Ultra is called "Dirty Bull" and is a 720-degree command throw a la Zangief. It doesn't do that much damage, but is still being tweaked. Capcom special advisor Seth Killian tells me that it used to be overpowered. In its current stage, I don't know many Balrog players that would give up his current Ultra based on how easy it is to connect after a headbutt and its ability to go through fireballs.

I'll have an extended session with Super Street Fighter IV later today so I'll bring you guys full impressions later on. For now, you'll have to settle for a picture of me and producer Yoshinori Ono, found after the jump. Also, props to G4tv.com commenter GreedyMcNasty who attended and introduced himself at the event.
