It was more than a year and a half ago that Capcom first announced Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, but the revamped version of the 15-year-old arcade game is finally ready to be released. Capcom today confirmed that Turbo HD Remix will arrive this month, although it did not give specific release dates for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 fighter.
Developed by Foundation 9's Backbone Entertainment, Turbo HD Remix features a new soundtrack, rebalanced gameplay, online multiplayer, and 1080p visuals completely redrawn by Udon Comics. In a nod to purists, Capcom is also giving players the option of playing with the arcade edition's graphics, sound, and game balance.
Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix will be available for download through the Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Network later this month. Capcom has not announced a price for the downloadable game yet. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's recent hands-on impressions.
