Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Cometh!

John Diamonon's Avatar Posted by 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.


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!


Add Your Own

First off I wanna thank you John and Capcom for releasing this game and the free underground remix. Being as I’ve been a Capcom fan since I was 4 years old playing Street Fighter 2 on the sega genesis. But I do have a question: For the online will there be alot of lagging? I don’t wanna have to wait every 30 seconds for a haduken to come out

@ John:

Count me in on the trophy support being absolutely necessary. It’s kind of crazy it’s not going to be in at launch consider trophies should be hella easy to add in…

Are you guys going to make the OCR music available (I’m assuming this hip hop stuff isn’t the new in-game music)? Preferably in FLAC format (hey Sony, add FLAC support to the XMB!).

Final question: when oh when are you guys going to put out a PlayStation Portable version of this? I know the HD graphics wouldn’t quite be done justice, but just having Super Turbo on a portable that can handle it flawlessly would be nice (and the newer graphics would still work, they’d just be smaller). Include ad-hoc and infrastructure play and you’d be golden.

    OCR musci won\’t be available as stand alones. There\’s no PSP version in the plan.


November 20th, 4:20 pm

Great news all around..I really wish the youtube video ulpoad feature would have made it in though…would make combo video’s and tourney fights sell the game on their own.

Any PS3/360 specific features?

hey can someone please tell me the name of the song that was in the both of those videos i also can’t wait 4 it 2 come out

snskidtv21 said:

November 20th, 4:50 pm

I am definitely getting this Tuesday. The wait has been killing me. lol
I can’t get “you’re the best” out of my head. lol
I would like to see the Round 1-3 trailers in the PS Store.
I just flashbacked to the 80/90’s when I played SF1 and SFII. I don’t know why I was first drawn to Chun Li and Zangief. Later of course I moved on to Ryu and Guile.
I really liked Champion Edition.
Oh mang! Is SSF2T HD Remix going to be as challenging as the original arcade? You definitely need skill to beat the entire game.
I was wondering something is it true that there is a 500mb+/- limit to the size a game can be the other console?? >.>
Also, when is MVC2 coming on for PS3??
Tell someone to make MVC3 and put Dante in it.

    Yes, the single player mode is just as hard as it was in the arcade. It seemed that the CPU new exactly what buttons you were pressing, didn\’t it?

pick-e said:

November 20th, 4:59 pm

No day one demo? Why is Capcom so inconsistent on the demo front? Sometimes they’ll release one before a game is out, sometimes on the same day its out, and lately some time after it is out.

Anyway…. when can we have Street Fighter characters in PAIN? Stop making Idol Minds hold them back, man.

Oh and has Capcom considered updating Puzzle Fighter HD? The single-player content is pretty much non-existant compared to past releases of the game. I know its over a year old at this point… but even Sony recently updated Super Rub a Dub which is considered ancient at this point.

You had me singing along to those two videos! Nothing gets you in the mood for some SF2 than Joe Esposito!

Ramage said:

November 20th, 5:21 pm

With all due respect…**** YOU! TELL US THE TRUTH ABOUT TROPHIES!

Now with a little more control.
You told us that rearmed would get trophies soon after launch. I bought the game because I LOVED the original but stopped playing after stage one so I wouldn’t have to do it again when trophies get released.

I’m not hatin’ on you John D, I don’t intend to shoot the messenger, but for a lot of us here you are our portal and I just want my voice to be heard. I know you read the heck out of these forums and commend you for your timey and “apt” responses.

Thanks in advance for any response and even if just for reading, since I know you’ll mention it to the good ‘ol C-boys.

    Here\’s the situation regarding the BCR trophies. Trophy support was definitely in the plans post-launch. Priorities have been shifted to prepare for the launch of the next gen game. I\’ll keep you updated on the status of this when I get new information.

Ramage said:

November 20th, 5:22 pm

Oh and besides all that, I do appreciate what you all are doing by bringing titles to the PSN. Can’t wait to see more…an that “little”(bigplanet) secret

Awesome! Im definatly getting this!

I noticed that Resident Evil Directors cut was on the Capcom store before, and its not there anymore. was it supposed to be there in the first place or was it an accident? and will it at any point and time be put on again? AND, will it be able to be played from a ps3 or just psp?

Sorry for double posting but is it comming back, because i want to buy iy, but didn;t get the chance, if you can’t release any info i understand, but if you can, that would be pretty AWESOME!!! and other residant evil games would be pretty awesome too!

@ John Diamond

Hi, I just wanted to comment that the Capcom tab in the PS Store is not there anymore, I had to wait until the “ad” showed up to get into it. Please talk to Sony about a better way to access your store. Hopefully other third parties get to have their store front but I really would not want to scroll down to find them. The place where is supposed to be right now (because right now it isn’t is not right. There should be other other way, maybe tabs on the left (like video & game).

I am so looking forward to SFHD, I loved the game back then, and I am sure will be much greater this time. Count me in!

Hey I think the title is Marvel vs Capcom 2

GameHead said:

November 20th, 6:07 pm

is marvel vs capcom 2 possible for DLC?

i heard it wasnt even possible, and i heard u guys CAPCOM won that law suit with dead rising good job

Hedrakk said:

November 20th, 6:15 pm

I’ll put really simple: YEAH!!!

To bad for the in-game music, I would love to fight on the video song (you’re the best around). This song just fit perfectly!!

One question though. Why wait to next tuesday and not releasing it tody? Will it really makes a difference for capcom dev team to finish the job? With only 3 business days left, I bet the job should be finished now?, no??? and since it’s a digital release, there is not packaging delay.

Anyways, I’m really REALLY happy now! The only downside, is that in Canada, thanksgiving holiday is in october, so, I won’t be off tuesday, I’ll have to way to play thuesday night. :)

Hey John,

Not sure if you’re still reading these comments, I just now stumbled across this blog post. I am extremely excited for this game and am definitely purchasing it first thing next Thurs.
I just have one question: have you guys ever considered doing a Final Fight HD Remake with online play (and include the kick-ass music from the sega cd version)?! I am a huge fan of all the new 2D games and old-school remakes you guys have been releasing lately. I’d just like to play some HD Final Fight, as well!

erico316 said:

john d can you do me a favor and ask the dmc team about the dlc and let me know if it was cancel?

schwaa said:

November 20th, 7:00 pm

Thanks John, you rule! Other devs could learn a lesson or two from you guys. Despite the lack of trophy support, you guys have been hooking us up, much appreciated!

I will be buying your future products based solely on the fact that you guys are giving PS3 owners EXCLUSIVE content, even if it is little stuff. Keep it coming!

Raacky said:

November 20th, 7:52 pm

people need to seriously stop depending on trophies for a purchase, i mean just because you can’t have trophies that must = no fun? too bad you’re going to be missing out over some trophies.

Raacky said:

November 20th, 7:54 pm

Oh yeah, if you didn’t know already, Mistah Fab has an incredible song with Tech N9ne, well vice versa but it’s called “Let’s Go” off of tech n9nes “Killer”…shoulda included some tech n9ne tracks on there!!!

“people need to seriously stop depending on trophies for a purchase, i mean just because you can’t have trophies that must = no fun? too bad you’re going to be missing out over some trophies.”

While I agree that trophies shouldn’t be a deciding factor, it is disingenuous to imply that trophies are going to be patched in when they very well might not be patched in.

November 20th, 10:35 pm


In JD’s defense. Everything he has said he’ll pass along to the development teams. He has had not one of the things happen yet. It must be very difficult to be such a non-factor in your job/career that no one should be blaming him.

PSblog, leave JD alone. Keep trying JD, even when things are mandatory I’ll let you get the credit. ;)

I have made it a point to not buy any games that don’t support in game music. If more people would do this maybe you guys would “shift priorities” to sell these games. I know it is a petty complaint, but I am tired of Xbox fans lording their abilities over my better system. Don’t get me wrong PS3 is far superior to both of the other wannabes, but lets show them up on all fronts.

If PS3 is the most powerful system, I don’t see why we don’t have in game music mandatory along with trophies and cross game voice chat. How hard is it to completely own the other systems?

Well that was a nice rant. Sony make me proud!

Skerj said:

November 21st, 2:33 am

Can we get some custom soundtrack love? I mean I LOVE Street Fighter music (own copies of mostly every SF soundtrack, even the arranged stuff) but if I could play some 3rd Strike music in it or heck even these tracks it’d be the best.

I need to brush up because I haven’t played any Street Fighter game in a long time. xD

Hey John, can i share my download with 4 people??? Really hope so!

uumai said:

November 21st, 5:37 am

Since SSFIITHDR took a lot longer than I believe capcom expected, does this mean we wont see anymore HD Remakes of street fighter?

Top of my list for HD Remake would be SF Alpha 2.

And Marvel Superheroes Vs Street Fighter would be great, preferred it to marvel Vs capcom.

Also is SSFIITHDR internations match making. If I in Uk purchased the US version, can I still play with people in the UK or will it automatically connect to US servers?

gorillapimp said:

November 21st, 6:16 am

John, big ups and great success! please, oh please, patch this game for custom soundtracks. also, the only little surprise i could expect would be in a PSone Classic such as Street Fighter EX Alpha. once again, custom soundtracks for games like this, ie fighters, racers, shooters, should have this option since it lends itself so well. i think its a tad unfare XBOX users have it and we dont. much love do!

TheHakku said:

November 21st, 6:43 am

Alright, I’m still grabbing this. Are there any plans for a trophy patch in the future, however? :]

leetfoo said:

November 21st, 7:46 am

$15 is a little steep for a remake…. but who am I kidding, this was my favorite iteration of the entire series, so I’ll be buying it, but I won’t be happy about the wallet raping.

dnight said:

November 21st, 7:54 am

Hey John,

I am a big fan of capcom work and sf2 series represents a lot to me. It brings to my mind awesome moments I had with my friends, making parties, playing against each other and having so much fun! yeah, day one purchase for me.

I just said to my friends in my home town that we will have another party of ssf2 during next december holidays. Yeah!! :)

I would like to see a Street Fighter themed room in home too, I would live there hahaha!

And John, keep up your awesome posts. You write the very best ones. Thanks for being with us here and answering a lot.

See you online

Will this have a practice mode? Game speed select? Or a multiplayer handicapping function? Or should I wait for SFIV? I never got into this series, but these functions could help. Thanks for the answers.

MakaiOokami said:

November 21st, 5:45 pm

No trophies = No purchase.

Sure it sounds like I’m being kinda fickle on that. Sure call me a whore but this is why.

1. I have a lot of game already.
2. I don’t finish most of the games I already have.
3. Money is EXTREMLY limited right now.
4. I’ve only played Street Fighter a little bit.

If I buy a game, and it has trophies people can see how far I’ve gotten in the game. It can be kinda embarassing to only have 4 percent of the trophies in a title. Also it gives me a chance to have goals to go for. I.E. Trophies got me to try Challenge Mode

In Mega Man 9 I probably would have gotten through Dr. Wiley’s Castle or bought more DLC for it if I could have gotten some extra trophies.

The final reason is, I’ve never really played Street Fighter. I’m not that good in Fighting games. I would get annihilated online. I have no friends to play with offline.

If it had trophies all i would have to do is say “Well the trophies will help me remember and want to play it and get better at it” that’s what happened with SSHD

There are so many great games out, I won’t be buying a single non trophy supported game. It’s either rent through gamefly or… wait until the releases dry up.

wavesln said:

November 22nd, 1:45 pm

No Trophies, no buy. Nobody should buy this until it’s patched which I doubt it will. It’s not the fact there’s no trophy support that annoys me the most, it’s that they lie. Not on release my $ss. CAPCOM is especially lazy when it comes to trophies. Too busy kissing that other company’s $ss maybe? And don’t get me started with the horrible Street Fighter IV art design. Ryu looks like freaking Rambo or something. Won’t buy IV unless it costs 4 bucks. Now SSFIIHD I would if it had TROPHIES. Trophies CAPCOM. Heard of them? They are like Achievements (I’m sure the company as a whole is quite familiar with them)only WAY better.

I am new to the site, but a LONG time SF2 fan. SFII CE is my sweet spot!

Will this game give you the ability to create your own league (i.e. Old Skool vs New Skool Players)?

Add me to your list of future matches, I want to see watch you got… PSN ID: MikeChk12

sakiu said:

November 23rd, 3:45 am

Sadly we all know why there are no trophies….its not mandatory till 1st of January 2009 so who cares? I would understand if at least one of capcom games had trophies and this one didn’t but not a single one game from capcom at PSN has trophies. Bionic Commando Rearmed will never get those, same with mega man 9 etc.

Its just not cool to tell people that trophies might come when they wont, the policy of capcom made me stop buying any games from PSN after Bionic Commando.

Treat your customers fair, we are not worse than x360 owners right?
