New Super Street Fighter IV Stages

The official Street Fighter IV blog has revealed three new stages and possibly another new character that will appear in Super Street Fighter IV.

The most distinct new stage revealed was one in Korea for the franchise’s first Korean character Juri. Another character-specific stage was an urban India stage for Dhalsim. Lastly there is a new Africa stage showing rural plains with people and giant Hippos in the background. Some have pointed out similarities between that stage and Elena’s Africa stage from Street Fighter III 3rd Strike.

Recent screenshots have also suggested that Ibuki from Street Fighter III might appear in Super Street Fighter IV. The screens show characters like Sakura and Guy getting hit by Kunai knives which in Street Figher are only used by Ibuki. Super Street Fighter IV is planned to include eight new characters, six of whom have been officially revealed.
