Street Fighter IV Heading To North American Shores "This Winter"

Fighting fans everywhere have been waiting for any news on a North American release date for Street Fighter IV. There was the possibility it might launch alongside the movie in February, and that possibility remains after X-Play interviewed SFIV producer Yoshi Ono.

In response to the question on everyone's minds (damnit, when's the game coming to U.S. shores?!), Ono had this to say in reply:

"There is no official North American arcade release, so we kind of feel bad that you guys have to wait for it. That's why we're trying to get it to you as soon as possible. Before the Japanese have a really long period of time to get really good at it first and totally kick your butt online... We don't want to start rumors that it's this year, but definitely this winter. At some point you'll be sitting in you winter coat looking at snow out the window...and right then we'll kind of heat you up a little with some hot street fighter action so look forward to that."

It's still not an exact release date but at least it's an official reply. This year, Soul Calibur IV satisfied many a fighting fan despite its widespread casual appeal, and there's always those Tekken fans lying in wait for the sixth installment. But for some, Street Fighter IV is tops on the priority list, and winter isn't that far off...

My prediction is before March. Companies love releasing huge hits right before their fiscal years end, and Jan-March (Winter 09) is Capcom's 4th quarter.

Yup, it's also a time when a lot of people get their income tax returns(woohoo!)

Capcom's not dumb, they know what they're doing
Worked GREAT last Winter with Devil May Cry 4.

Really drooling to get SFIV, I went crazy when I heard Capcom was finally going to give it a sequel.

Woah, wait, theres gonna be another movie? What've we got goin on, and don't say the words Jean Claude Van Damme. CGI or Anime maybe?

I really haven't followed SF in awhile, is this multi-plat?

Kristin Kreuk as Chun Li, who the movie centers on.

I really don't know when Street Fighter IV will come out. I would expect Street Fighter II HD to come before IV comes out.

Yea ........... no thanks. =(

SC IV is pretty good. With Naruto's awesome battle scenes (and hell I am a fan of Naruto) ... I'll be good. I'm avoiding 1 on 1 games from now on, they have to be something unique like Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm.

so you'd rather play some crappy Naruto game then have the most amazing fighting game(next to MVC2)? i would totally buy SFIV over any other fighting game. as for SCIV, it really isnt that great. they have done better.

Like most people, I'm waiting for this one as well. Only problem is that there really isn't any arcades around here anymore. So unless one of the casinos here gets it, looks like I'll be waiting for the home version. But I would wet my pants with joy if news of a new Killer Instinct, Samurai Shodown or Darkstalkers were to come into the limelight. Heck I'll even settle for another Slammasters or Martial Champion lol.

Never believe anything Gametop says(rule of gaming #1)

But I'm sure that date is a close guess, just based on the fact Capcom has said before that winter is probably the best bet.

But Gamestop, all the they do is guess(so that people keep buying from them)

"Hey they always know when a game's coming out, let me buy there all the time"

Street Fighter is my favorite 2D Arcade fighting game, my mind is forever stuck with the classic SF 2D scene, if they make it on PS3 with 3D, while the graphics and presentation will be great, but I am not sure if I will ever feel it is still the same good old SF classic.

It will still be great tho.
