See Ultra Street Fighter 4's new super and ultra combos in action

Capcom has revealed the over-the-top combos for the four new characters coming to Ultra Street Fighter 4, a mix of new and familiar super and ultra combos.

Rolento's super and ultra combos draw upon his attacks in previous appearances in the Street Fighter franchise. His super, Mine Sweeper, and his Take No Prisoners ultra are updated versions of moves introduced in the Street Fighter Alpha series. His other ultra, Patriot Sweeper, combines Rolento's expertise with a baton and grenades.

Elena's super, Spinning Beat, and her ultras, Healing and Brave Dance, are near-exact recreations of her super arts from Street Fighter 3. The same appears to be true for Hugo, who gets updated versions of his Street Fighter 3 super arts — Gigas Breaker, Hammer Frenzy and Megaton Press. Each has a bit more flair, thanks to Ultra Street Fighter 4's 3D graphics.

Finally, Poison sees one of her moves from Street Fighter X Tekken return in the form of Love Storm, an ultra that humiliates and punishes her opponent with a riding crop. She'll also have a shoryuken-like super called the Thunder Whip and an ultra named Poison Kiss that ends with a vicious kick right in the gems.

Here's a look at all four characters' super and ultra combos in action.

Last month, Capcom announced that Ultra Street Fighter 4 will add Double Ultra Combos, an option that will allow players to have both Ultras at their disposal at once, with the trade-off being that each deals less damage. The game will also introduce Red Focus Attacks, a new defensive option for players.

Fighting game fans will be able to test some of the new changes coming in Ultra at location tests that kick off next week.
