Street Fighter News Update – New Year Edition

Posted by: Akuma on Thursday, January 1st, 2009

Shown above is the movie trailer for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, the upcoming live action Street Fighter movie starring Kristen Kreuk as Chun-Li. I didn’t have very high hopes for this movie before and those hopes are brought down even further with this trailer. Did you spot Vega? Without some of the characteristic costumes and styles, The Legend of Chun-Li doesn’t even look like Street Fighter. Jean-Claude Van Damme would be disappointed.

I had the opportunity to play Street Fighter IV the other day and I have to admit that it was pretty darn cool. The art style takes some getting used to, but if you’re a diehard Street Fighter fan like me, you’ll fall into line almost right away. The gameplay is familiar and does away with the parry system from Street Fighter III. The complete roster consists of 25 characters, including Sheng Long, Rose, El Fuerte, and more. Here’s where you can play Street Fighter IV.

Speaking of Street Fighter IV, the new box art has been revealed, including the special editions that’ll come with an anime DVD and a figurine. Xbox 360 owners get Crimson Viper, whereas PS3 gamers get a Ryu figurine.

In addition to Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix shattering all sorts of sales records, it seems that Capcom has a few more Street Fighter goodies up its sleeve for us in 2009. The PlayStation Network for the PS3 (and maybe some for the PSP) could see a lot of Street Fighter, including titles from the Street Fighter Alpha series, the Street Fighter Movie game, and even X-Men vs. Street Fighter. Berserker barrage!
