By the sounds of it, Capcom are strip mining the less than successful Street Fighter X Tekken for updates assets in the next version of Street Fighter IV. Due next year, Ultra Street Fighter IV is to feature fan feedback gameplay adjustments, as well as six stages and four characters ripped straight from 2012's cross-over. Joining Ryu and the gang are Mad Gear alumni Poison, Hugo and Rolento, as well as the hyper-limber Elena from Street Fighter III. We are also promised a mystery fifth fighter, apparently making their Street Fighter series debut. Capcom Twitter feeds have already discounted Asura (from Asura's Wrath) and Mega Man but, so far, there's been no mention of a certain Mayor Mike Haggar.
