Street Fighter IV continues to excel in the “taking the piss” stakes today, with news that Sagat and Balrog are in the arcade version, as seen in this movie. From this:

“Taken from the Taito Center in Akihabara, the first clip shows Sagat fighting Zangief on a stage that looks reminiscent of Balrog’s Las Vegas backdrop from previous Street Fighters. Sagat still has access to his Tiger punches, and while he never used a Tiger Uppercut in the video, he did fling a lot of fireballs. According to the poster on YouTube, Sagat is currently the final boss of the game, and after you beat him in the arcade you get a “Thanks For Playing” message. Balrog, on the other hand, appeared to demonstrate many other moves, with shoulder charges, dash punches and uppercuts, and other aerial strikes. He appeared to attack Zangief on a stage that resembled the deck of a ship, which looked like a Junk.”

The game’s slated for a summer release in Japanese arcades. It’s been out IN OUR HEARTS for many months.
