It follows my big Ultra Street Fighter 4 interview with Capcom, where we discuss balancing changes, and that mysterious new character.

The notes were published on EventHubs and run down every character’s tweaks in full. It’s a massive list, so we’ve only posted the system changes below. Hit the link for the rest.
