It’s a good time to be a Street Fighter.
First things first… let’s make it official: Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix drops for PlayStation Network on November 25, 2008, and on Xbox LIVE Arcade on November 26, 2008. Get hype!
I’m also excited to announce that we’ll be throwing giant hadokens up in everyone’s grill with our “Season of Street Fighter.”
What is the “Season of Street Fighter”? No, it’s not Ryu in a Santa hat or Ken hurricane-kicking a dreidel. It means we’re unloading a giant dumptruck full of Street Fighter fun and it’s backing up to your front door NOW:
You heard about the Street Fighter table for Pinball FX , but that was just the beginning. We’ve also got a Street Fighter UNO DLC pack, featuring cards with signature Street Fighter specials, as well as your favorite SF backgrounds and themed music. And last but not least, Capcom will also have another “Little” Street Fighter surprise coming to the PSN soon.
You can find all of this juice at our Street Fighter digital destination sites, on the New Xbox Experience and the PlayStation Network .
And just in case you thought you knew what to expect from Street Fighter, think again. In addition to all the Street Fighter DLC, I’m also excited to announce a direct-to-download album of Street Fighter-inspired hip-hop! The Street Fighter Underground Remix album will feature the musical flavor of artists such as DJ Qbert , Hieroglyphics , Redman , Oh No , DJ Toure , Mistah F.A.B. and Zion I . Each of the cuts will be available exclusively on PlayStation Network, FOR FREE, when SF HD Remix launches!
Hit the jump for the full press release!
