Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Cometh!

John Diamonon's Avatar + Posted by John Diamonon on Nov 20, 2008 // Product Marketing Manager, Capcom

It’s a great time to be a Street Fighter! It’s with great pleasure that I announce that HD Remix will arrive on the PlayStation Network real soon! Now you have the chance to debate which legs are more appealing, the turkey leg you’re about to have or the ones on Chun-Li.

SFHD PSN

Here are the details:
Release date: November 25, 2008 (I know, finally, right?)
Price: You’ve heard it here first! Only $14.99!
Trophies: Not at launch
Online Play: Of course
Graphics: 1080p baby
Gameplay: Two types – Original and Rebalanced

Here are some videos that will get you hyped for the game and will make you say, “Put him in a body bag!”

But wait, there’s more! Exclusive to the PlayStation Network, fans will have the opportunity to download the Street Fighter Underground Remix Soundtrack for free! I was able to get a few of my favorite hip hop artists to create original songs inspired by the series. Here’s the line up: Redman, Hieroglyphics, DJ Qbert, DJ Toure, Zion I, Mistah F.A.B. and Oh No.

SFHD Music

Oh yeah, we also have a “little” Street Fighter surprise coming later this holiday season. Let the speculation begin. Talk to you next week!

Hadouken!

Hell yeah John! Thanks for letting us know the price, too! I’m so pumped for Tuesday I’m already setting up a tourney for Tuesday night.

The “little” suprise is obviously Street Fighter-themed LittleBigPlanet DLC. I’ll take it.

Great work my man, come back soon to tell us about Marvel vs. Capcom 2, will ya? ;)

Thanks for answering so many of the questions posted in the comments, John. It’s nice to know you don’t just pop in to make a post and then disappear.

Also, great idea on the LBP costumes!

*laughs* Hey; that’s how I roll! Add my trophies, and it’s a done deal. Toss RE:DC and RE2 onto PSN, and I’ll buy those too.

Come to think of it, didn’t I see one or both of those titles on the JPN Store? I want ‘em too!

$14.99 without any Trophy support? LOL Thanks, but no thanks. I’ll just wait for Super Street Fighter IV. Hopefully SSFIV will have full Trophy support.
Another major let down by Capcom ladies and gentlemen. I’m sure the 360 counterpart have full achievements. Am I correct?

Damn, another game I’m not buying from Capcom. Bionic Comando Rearm and now Super Street Fighter HD remix.

Lets see if you guys actually get the point of Trophies by Resident Evil 5.

Monster Hunter 3 for the PS3!!!

67

+ Ghostm on November 20th, 2008 at 12:29 pm said:

PS3 TROPHIES ARE IMPORTANT WHEN YOU MAKE A GAME. JUST AS IMPORTANT AS 360 ACHIEVEMENTS.

LMAO!!!

I’m heard that song before John Diamonon. “Seriously, unfortunately. We couldn’t delay the game even longer, could we? Not a confirmation. We’re evaluating all of our digital titles and looking into it.”


68

+ Ghostm on November 20th, 2008 at 12:33 pm said:

How come all 360 games have achievements and custom in-game music but not all PS3 titles does? OMG, this is getting pretty tiring. These developers should know better. Stop releasing gimp version for our console.
I know there are more 360s in homes but us PS3 owners are not far behind. I spend just as much money as a 360 owner on my system. I actually spend more since my PS3 cost more. I’d like to receive the same kind of treatment.


69

+ FeaturePreacher on November 20th, 2008 at 12:34 pm said:

Hey John,

When you guys are evaluating titles to patch for trophy support, could you also add in-game access to music for those titles as well?

Oh yeah, and SF2HD too! Woo! I’ll be there Tuesday!

Trophies or no, I’m down. It will just be a nice added bonus should you decide to implement them later, and just another reason to keep me playing! :D

Thanks Capcom, you guys are doing great these days.

I don’t buy anything from capcom. And I do a lot on PSN, PS3, and a litle bit even on XBOX 360. Not supporting trophy is just showing miserespect to ps3′s player base..

Bionci commando’s rearmed. Trophy patch following relase, promised (dixit capcom).
is it released `?

Seriously, I just think capcom’s direction is telling “implementing trophy cost 5’000$”, for that price we can do a wii game. We’ve better to do. If only MS didn’t FORCE us to implement achievements..

capcom doesn’t exist anymore to me (32y old)

I’m definitely buying this one. When I was younger I played a lot of Street Fighter. I think John is talking about a Street Fighter 4 demo when he said there is a suprise coming this holiday season.

+ Mana Knight on November 20th, 2008 at 12:45 pm said:

I’m quite excited for this myself. I don’t think people here would be very happy if the PS3 version was delayed until next year or so JUST to implement trophies (while fans on another console are enjoying the game). So that’s why I’m glad Capcom went ahead and released it.

I can’t wait to play this online with friends chatting. I’m very glad to see the game is in 1080p also. Basically, I consider this the appetizer until SF4 hits. :D

Consider this one bought.. but until Trophies are out, not played much. It’s not like I will need practice in the meantime though, as the special moves for each SF2 character are embedded in my DNA now (and should be in any true gamer’s DNA).

+ Kevyn.B.Grams on November 20th, 2008 at 12:47 pm said:

+ DarKaoZ on November 20th, 2008 at 12:49 pm said:

Is so great to see the game finally done, is been close to 2 years of developing I bet. This will be nostalgic, still I kinda miss the old style you guys were trying to make, it looked more like the old SF2, this style looks more animeish, ala Alpha since it has less colors.

Still a great job none the less, I bet it was hard. Hopefully Capcom decides to release SF3rd Strike and/or MvsC2 with online functions and upscaled to HD so we can play the games online. I know they can’t make it HD because that will take A LOT of time, but I bet they can just upscale it and use a filter to make it look nicer in bigger screens.

Anyways, badass job you guys did here!

Ungrateful people as usual. They give us a free Soundtrack and people chastise the third party that has supported the PSN the most. Shameful what the PlayStation community seems to be turning into.

Yes, I’m a bit upset that there won’t be trophies at launch but I cannot hate on Capcom seeing all the goodness they’ve done.

ps. While you guys are working on the trophy patch, please evaluate adding custom tracks in there. It would be nice to use this soundtrack in game. ;) Keep up the good work.

Sweet.

Although ‘little street fighter surprise’

unless it is something else other than these two:

A) The ESRB already ok’d Street Fighter Alpha’s 2 and 3 for the PSN

B) rumor has been going of you guys doing a HD remake of Marvel VS Capcom 2 for PSN

it wouldn’t be that much of a surprise LOL–although those are both good things anyways no complaints here

but yeah more PSOne classics please–Resi 2, Dino Crisis, maybe the 3D Street Fighter for S&G’s–yeah the more the merrier!

i second what NeoMagus said.

anyone complaining about not having Trophies for flippin Street Fighter is a complete f****ng retard.

it even says not at launch which basically means later. if you need trophies to know why Street Fighter 2 is great you should not call yourself a gamer EVER. f’in whiney @$$ noobs.

Listing the trophies, the resolution and all the other important info … accept XMB Music. Although reading down the question has been answered but it should have been listed in the post.

I too am a trophy whore and I just will not be picking this up without them. Sorry, I am sure it is a great game.

Did a trophy patch ever roll out for bionic commando actually? I don’t know I skipped that game because there were others I wanted to play (and had trophies) :-)

@Clinton514 , NeoMagus

I agree with you two completely. To sit here and read the negative comments about people bashing Capcom for not implementing Trophy support at launch makes me livid and embarrassed to be a part of a community where this kind of activity is commonplace. If they did a little research, they’d know that most game devs are (pretty much) required to implement achievements whereas Sony doesn’t. To insinuate that Microsoft bribes Capcom to put achievements for them and not Sony is not only insulting to Capcom, but shows ignorance on the poster’s part (you know who you are).

All the complainers do is whine and cry like babies, showing lack of respect towards developers, and not being the least bit grateful. Shame on them. It’s Capcom’s business when it comes software programming, not yours; the least you can do is show some support, class, and respect.
