This is going to be complicated, but bare with the following release dates for Capcom's upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV:
June 3 - Digital Upgrade: PSN on PS3 (North America), $14.99
June 4 - Digital Upgrade: Xbox Live on Xbox 360 (North America), $14.99
August 5 - PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 retail versions, also PS3 full digital bundle
August 8 - Digital Upgrade and Full Digital Bundle for PC, $29.99
The $14.99 digital upgrade will be for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC owners of Super Street Fighter IV or SSFIV: Arcade Edition. The full digital bundle on PC will be $29.99 and the full version for PS3 will be $39.99. The retail versions will also be $39.99. Anyone who purchases the full digital bundle or a retail version will receive all previous released costumes.
Pre-ordering Ultra Street Fighter IV at select retailers will come with the Challengers Costume Pack that expectedly gives the new cast of characters a new set of alternate customers. Elena gets a Jungle outfit, Hugo goes Medieval, Poison becomes a Pirate, Rolento transforms into a Wizard (interesting...), and Decapre gets a Gladiator outfit. The screenshots embedded above shows off these extras costumes.
