Official Screenshots: Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
What, you thought that Capcom was done with Street Fighter II, just because the company has moved on to Street Fighter IV? In these later years, Capcom has no problem resurrecting a classic from the grave, revitalizing it with jazzed up graphics and the ability to challenge opponents over the Internet, all without having to place a quarter on the ledge to call “next.”
What you see here are three official screenshots from Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, scheduled for release on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 via the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Store, respectively. I think it looks pretty awesome with the updated graphics, especially the art found on the character selection screen. It is a bit of a shame that the flaming body is still the exact same model for everyone, regardless of who gets lit up by a big shoryuken. The three shots shown here are from the official Capcom blog, but you can find more screen captures over at Joystiq. Pay particular attention to the Guile sprite, because he’s got the USA flag backwards. WTF?
By the way, the tentative release date is still “2008.” They haven’t gotten any more specific than that.
