Ultra Double Combo and Red Focus added to Ultra Street Fighter IV, unblockables removed
Capcom has revealed new battle mechanics for Ultra Street Fighter IV.
Capcom has revealed new battle mechanics for Ultra Street Fighter IV. In a video posted by Capcom Fighters, Combofiend reveals the additions of Ultra Double Combo and Red Focus.
Rumors of being able to use both Ultras and Red Focus surfaced this week. The speculations came to fruition today (Oct. 24).
With the Ultra Double Combo mechanic, players are able to use both Ultras during a match at the expense of damage. The damage dealt when using the Ultra Double Combo mechanic is less than picking just one Ultra before the match begins.
Red Focus allows players to absorb multiple hits. Like a regular Focus Attack, however, you will still be susceptible to throws and armor breaks.
Combofiend also confirmed that unblockables have been removed from the game. It is possible that some setups still remain, but future location tests should be able to weed them out.
