View Full Version : Street Fighter goes Xbox Live

05-07-2004, 09:28 AM
Capcom Entertainment announced today that Street Fighter Anniversary Collection will not only appear on Xbox, it will appear on Xbox Live this fall 2004. That's right, as part of Street Fighter's 15-year anniversary, Capcom is bringing this massive 2D fighting compilation to the big black box.

The compilation comprises Hyper Street Fighter II and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, which includes the entire contents of the Japanese anniversary disc, Hyper Street Fighter II. And players can get online for one-on-one fights for endless competitions of the classic 2D arcade brawler.

Hyper Street Fighter II gives gamers the opportunity to play as any of the fighters from Street Fighter II, Street Fighter II Champion Edition, Street Fighter II Hyper Fighter, Street Fighter II: The New Challengers, and Super Street Fighter II Turbo. So, imagine fighting as Ryu or Ken from Street Fighter II with the more advanced Ryu or Ken from Super Street Fighter II Turbo, and you'll get the picture.

Hyper Street Fighter II features three game modes, Arcade mode, where you face off against AI opponents to fight the final boss; Vs. Mode, in which gamers fight mano a mano; and Training Mode, where they train. Gallery offers each game's introductions and their corresponding music tracks.

Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike offers up 19 playable fighters including Makodo, Q, Twelve, and Remy. And making a cameo appearance (is it really any surprise?) visit is Chun Li.

This game also offers three game modes, Arcade Mode (a direct conversion from the arcade), Vs. Mode, and Training Mode. It also enables players to evaluate their performances in the Grade Judge Match, participate in an interesting Progressive Hit Frame System, perform Super Arts Moves, and confront enemies using a Leap Attack.

Its 2D......

I admit. I LOVED this game when SF2 came out. I can't tell you how many quarters I spent or how many times I could do Guiles Flash Kick and catch you every time you came down with another one. But come on.......the game still looks the same 10 years later???? Atleast inovate a LITTLE....bigger arenas, interactive arenas SOMETHING. I know that part of the apeal is that is a 'perdy 2D anime lookin game....but there really has been NOTHIN new for this series...

Im playin Dead or Alive Ultimate...woot!

I can see the big shots sitting in a coference room...

"We need a game, we already made about 18 Street fighters IIs...whats the next step"

45 minutes of silence

"Street fighter II Super Happy edition, We can give ryu another color outfit!"

Another 30 minutes of silence


Hate to say it, But street fighter needs to stay in my memories of the early 90's. Its 2004 now. Wake up you money soaking sponge named Capcom. Havent you exploited the Street fighter fans enough already?
