Hints for the release date for Ultra Street Fighter 4 have been dropped, pointing to a release sometime between spring and summer. Of course, it'll hit the arcades first before popping up on home consoles.

This post on the Capcom-Unity blog revealed that Ultra Street Fighter 4 will hit Japanese arcades in April 2014. The digital download versions of the game will hit North American and European consoles sometime after that, before EVO 2014, which takes place from July 11, 2014 to July 13, 2014.

The game's release might seem a little far off, but it's probably owing to the need to fine-tune the development of the new characters and the new fighting systems. We'll let you know when a hard release date has been announced, but until then, expect Ultra Street Fighter 4 on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 any time between spring and summer.
