Those who didn’t grow up in the early and mid-90s probably don’t understand all of the jokes about recurring games in the Street Fighter II saga. Needless to say, the game was re-bundled and re-branded in so many ways, it was tough to keep them all together. Even Street Fighter III went through three different iterations.
Now it is Street Fighter IV’s turn, returning at an unspecified date with “Super” in front of the title. Only three characters came with Capcom’s announcement, classic fighters T-Hawk and Dee Jay joining newcomer Juri.
The game will be a stand alone retail disc, not a downloadable update. While we question Capcom’s statement that Street Fighter IV was not coded with this kind of change in mind (because you were planning this all along?), the changes are widespread enough that Super will not be compatible with the original release. Seems like a worthy enough retail release if the price is fair.
