SFII HD Remix Misses UK This Week
Sorry, UK gamers, we have to deliver another bit of bad news, although we're hoping this particular delay isn't longer than a week.
While both the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace will receive Street Fighter II HD Remix this week in the U.S. (Live tomorrow, PSN on Thursday), Capcom has confirmed to CVG that the revamped fighter will not arrive this week in the UK for the PS3. It'll still come to Live, but once again, PS3 owners are forced to wait...although we don't have a reason as to why. All Capcom would say is "definitely not this week," which also means it may not release next week, either. This one should be worth the wait, though; old-school remakes like these can be super crazy fun - especially in the nostalgia department - and for a very reasonable fee, you can relive the glory days of the 2D fighter. There will be a few minor differences, of course, like the high-definition visuals and updated gameplay, but obviously, it's still the Street Fighter we all fell in love with way back when. If you haven't bought a lot on the PSN this year, Street Fighter II HD Remix should be considered as a purchase. Let's just hope you UK gamers won't have to wait too long.
As soon as Capcom delivers a new date, we'll be sure to tell you about it. "Definitely not this week" may not sound too good, but we'll just cross our fingers for a December 4 release.
