The “Ultra Street Fighter IV” official frame data can be accessed through a mobile app, but it comes with a cost.
The app serves as a companion for all 44 characters in the fighting game, which got the “Ultra” upgrade earlier this month, and it provides a second screen reference. “Ultra” is an update of “Super Street Fighter IV,” which was launched in 2009.
“Dominate the competition with the Ultra Street Fighter IV Official Frame Data App from BradyGames. This mobile-friendly app puts the frame data for all 44 characters right at your fingertips, making it the perfect companion whether you’re playing at home by yourself or competing in a tournament,” the app description reads.
“Ultra Street Fighter IV” is available for $14.99 as an upgrade to “Super Street Fighter IV” or can be purchased as a standalone game for $39.99 in August. The Steam upgrade for the game will be released on Aug. 8.
The upgrade got mostly good reviews, with a number of publications saying it provided good content.
“For a specific audience, Ultra Street Fighter 4 will be greeted as a godsend. It improves on nearly every flaw of Super Street Fighter 4, while giving fighting game aficionados enough to dissect and examine for months, if not years to come. Is it perfect? No, not at all. Capcom should have added additional polish,” reads a review from Joystiq.
The Metro also reviewed the game, saying “Ultra Street Fighter IV is a litany of small changes (recording offline matches is another good one) but as minor as they all are individually they do add up to a perfectly worthwhile upgrade. It’s still only the hardcore fans that will be interested in it as an add-on, but when it’s incorporated into the full version, with all of the other content, it should prove ultra hard for anyone to resist. As well as being the definitive version of the best fighting game of the last generation.”
