Capcom Announces SF 3: 3rd Strike Online Edition
During the Super Street Fighter 4 panel at Comic-Con today, producer Yoshinori Ono announced Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition, promising he hasnt forgotten about the Street Fighter III series and intends to bring it back to fans.
What he didnt bring, unfortunately, was much in the way of any details. Were presuming itll probably be a digital release of the game over Xbox Live Arcade and PSN with online play built in, but thats pure speculation -- Ono announced no specific details for it, saying theyre "going to take our time to bring this out" and that its "not going to come out in the immediate future, but just let everyone know that Street Fighter 3 is coming back." Ono also told fans that if there are any features they want to see in it, then "go to Capcom Unity and tell Seth Killian."
This wouldnt be the first time Street Fighter III went online, though -- Third Strike was included on Street Fighter Anniversary Edition with online play for the original Xbox. Whatever new features Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition will get remains to be seen. When any more info comes up, well pass it along.
