Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono teases upcoming Comic-Con announcement

You’ll notice immediately that controllers for the Xbox 360 and PS3 are included in the picture (there’s also a keyboard). In the background we see CGI Ryu with inkblots in the same art style found in the Street Fighter IV series. It was recently revealed that the arcade version of Super Street Fighter IV is coming along nicely, but this appears to be unrelated.
According to Eventhubs, Ono-san will be at Comic-Con giving a presentation. The description from the itinerary provides some insight on what to expect:
12:00-1:00 Street Fighter Mania!: SSFIV and Beyond! — Producer Super Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono shares his thoughts on SSFIV and presents his exciting vision for the future of the franchise. Experience why everyone can’t get enough of Street Fighter! Featuring Seth Killian, Street Fighter special adviser. Followed by a Q&A session. Room 25ABC
Comic-Con begins on July 22nd and ends on the 25th. Will Capcom go the DLC route for Super Street Fighter IV by adding new characters and features or will there be a Turbo edition?
Let the speculation begin!
