Street Fighter II HD turbos onto 360, PS3 in November

Capcom confirms long-awaited Remix of arcade game will arrive before December; price point still unknown.

156 Comments

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.

Although highly unlikely, I hope that if you already bought SF II on Arcade that you could get HD Remix for free.

I was waiting for this for so long , I gave up due to lack of new info. Spent my points i was saving on san andreas and I'm loving it all over again! Looking forward to this though, can't see why your all moaning about the 360 pad. It works a treat with hyper fighting !

And here I thought SF4 was going to come out before this. Since there is no solid date, I'm not going to give my hopes up. It's the first week of Nov and it's supposed to get a Nov release? I imagine it'll get delayed till Dec or Q1 2009 (since it seems to be the case with a lot of things lately)

Worth getting as long as they fix the freakin slow downs on Xbox live. The hyper fighting Street fighter 2 was awful on live.

@ peeweeshift - The game is likely to cost $19.99 or $29.99 on PSN as for X360 I have not learned Micro$oft points in school so I don't know what that comes to.

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was not announced by the developers. Cut the crap. When the developers say it will be then it will, until then stop the daydreaming. This game took forever if there was MVC2 you will wait three times longer.

this Took a Frickin eternity to arrive....yet ANOTHER port of this game....ooh! online play! big Deal. enough already-the Milk carton is 3/4 empty and yet they try to make more by adding water to the product...or like a deceased music artist "creating more albums of unreleased material" -- Ill wait and buy SF4 and the next KOF installments... Knowing how this works, Capcom has their name working for them and people will purchase this regardless.....like myself...ill eventually give in and do the same.

there gonna announce that it is 1200 or 1400 within a week and people are gonna rush out to get some more points to buy it. They obvioulsy won't charge 800 after they put so much time and money into it. It's not like bionic commando where they had it easy and could redo all the assets and refine and change up the gameplay.

I am guessing around $15.00, 1200 MS points. I know I had far more then that into it while it was in the arcades. Side note: Marvel vs Capcom 2 remake would be nice. Since the cheapest I can find it around my area is $60.

it better come out by december if it doesn't want to end up being buried by its own sequel, Street Fighter IV. the fact that the releases are getting so close is just ridiculous. honestly, IV is already ahead since you can actually PLAY the game in Japanese arcades, where no one can play Turbo HD yet.

This is great, but the controller will be an issue for 360 owners. I can only believe that this will be resolved prior to the holiday season.
