SSFIV: Arcade Edition Getting Balance Patch

GamesRadar is reporting that Capcom has announced they plan to release a free balance patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition sometime later this year.

EVO, the world’s largest fighting game tournament, is going on right now in Las Vegas, and during a Street Fighter panel producer Yoshinori Ono announced that Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition will be receiving a free balance patch before year’s end. This news comes despite numerous statements that Arcade Edition would be the final version of SFIV.

The news was well received by the enthusiast crowd, who cheered when Ono announced it. It’s a commonly held belief among high level SFIV players that AE’s new characters and gameplay changes negatively affected the game’s balance. The addition of Yun, and changes to Fei Long have been the most criticized, complaints that were somewhat justified by the fact that Yun and Fei Long represented 21 of the top 32 players in this year’s SSF4:AE EVO tournament.
I'm surprised Capcom is not releasing it as $DLC.

I'm surprised it's not being released on disk at retail.

EVO finals going on right now. I think they're on MvC3: http://evo2k.com/live/

Also, this game really needs this. It's a notable drop in balance from regular SSF4.
