The next patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition is so large it gets its own name – “Version 2012”. Get the run down on what’s in, what’s out, and what’s no longer exploitable you cheating prat, through the break.

The trailer below gives a very brief summary, but you can download a more detailed list of changes in PDF format from Capcom Unity.

In short: every single member of the roster has been rebalanced, with recent characters like Codey, Evil Ryu, Fei Long, Gen, Gouken, Hakan, Makoto, Oni, Yun and Yang seeing huge overhauls, while classic, fine-tuned brawlers like Sagat get the merest brush up.

That patch releases on December 13 as a title update for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; no ETA on the PC version beyond “soon”.
